Botox® is one of the most popular non-surgical options available because of its excellent results when it comes to smoothing wrinkles around the upper face. It can be a great option for boosting your look and your confidence without the hassle of downtime or surgical incisions. Combined with other non-surgical options, Dr. Angelchik can recommend the best treatment package for your non-surgical goals.
Botox is an injectable option that is classified as a neuromodulator, meaning it can block movement signals that travel from the brain to your facial muscles. These muscles can cause wrinkles to form over a lifetime of movement, meaning Botox can both smooth wrinkles and prevent them from further developing. Botox also has many medical uses outside of plastic surgery because of its effective mechanisms.
There is no specific age at which you should receive Botox, since everyone ages at different rates. However, it’s important to be in good health and have no medical conditions that could affect your results and safety, so be sure to discuss these during your consultation with Dr. Angelchik in the Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Glendale, AZ area. It’s also important to discuss your goals for Botox, since this treatment may not be in-line with your intended results. Dr. Angelchik can recommend whether you may benefit more from a surgical procedure instead.
There are a few areas that Botox can most effectively treat, although Dr. Angelchik may recommend additional non-surgical treatments to augment your results. The most common treatment areas for Botox include:
These fine wrinkles around the eyes are caused by a lifetime of squinting or laughing, and Botox can effectively freeze the contributing muscles.
These deep furrows between the brows can cause you to look more angry or tired than you feel, but Botox can smooth these lines and skin, reducing their appearance.
Deep lines in the forehead can be caused by expressiveness over the course of a lifetime, and Botox can smooth and lift these lines, preventing them from causing the upper face to appear heavy.
Some patients experience stretching of the neck muscles over time, leading to ‘bands’ that protrude when making certain facial expressions. Botox can prevent these expressions from occurring and reduce the appearance of unflattering ‘bands’.
I have had botox and dysport at other places, usually by a nurse injector and it never takes right away, i always have to come back to add more, but Dr. Angelchik got it right the first time and i was so happy, and his staff was very kind and caring i would recommend him to anyone. Read More >
Botox can be administered in a quick, in-office treatment session. Dr. Angelchik applies a topical anesthetic to the treatment area, and the product is then carefully injected into the individual muscles of the face and neck. This is completed over multiple small and precise injections to ensure the best results. Overall, the treatment session can take as little as fifteen minutes.
Botox can take around one week to begin taking effect, but most patients see their results last for three to four months. You may benefit from additional non-surgical treatments to reduce wrinkles and maintain healthy skin, and Dr. Angelchik can recommend your best options during a consultation. Directly after treatment, it’s important not to touch or massage the injection area, as this can cause the product to spread to unwanted areas. Some patients experience minor bruising, swelling, or redness for one or two days after treatment, but this subsides quickly.
