Whether you live in Gainesville or elsewhere, you most likely want to have an attractive appearance. BOTOX® injections can give you a more youthful appearance by reducing the fine lines, wrinkles and folds on your face. This substance is injected into preselected facial muscles during a brief treatment at our office. It is injected into strategic locations on the face to affect the nerves of the muscles that often create wrinkles and fine lines. The effects will begin to show within days of the treatment, and you will notice fewer facial wrinkles for months at a time.
You Don’t Need Sedation or Downtime
There are several benefits from a treatment with BOTOX®, including that it is a minimally-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any sedation or recovery period. First, you should have a consultation with our professional to determine if you have any health conditions that prevent the use of BOTOX®. Almost anyone can have the injections, but if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, then you should wait until a later time to have this treatment.
Common injection areas include:
• The forehead – to reduce forehead wrinkling
• Between the eyes – to reduce frown lines
• At the outer corner of the eyes – to reduce crow’s-feet
Reducing Your Dynamic Wrinkles
When you want to have an injection treatment with BOTOX®, our expert will analyze your facial structure to determine where to inject the substance into the upper skin layers so that the solution reaches the muscles underneath the skin. The solution will affect the nerves in the underlying tissues so that your facial skin relaxes on top of the injected muscles, reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines. This type of non-surgical treatment is particularly important for preventing the changes in the skin that are caused by facial expressions that include:
With a smoother skin texture on your face, you will have a more youthful appearance that could even make you look younger than you are, and you can enjoy this benefit without invasive plastic surgery.
