What Is Botox?
Botox is a completely non-surgical treatment that can temporarily minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. When injected into specific areas of your forehead and around your eyes, this brief, in-office procedure provides quick results that typically last as long as four months.
Botox can treat wrinkles like:
- Forehead furrows
- Crow’s feet
- The glabellar lines, or “eleven lines,” that form between your brows when you frown
Overseen by Medical Director Dr. Sarah Vakkalanka, a respected ear, nose, and throat physician in Huntington Beach, California, Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics follows the most rigorous safety guidelines in the industry.
In addition to its remarkable anti-aging properties, Botox has the proven ability to help address a range of health complaints. These include involuntary muscle twitches, migraine headaches, unwanted sweating, and urinary incontinence.
How Botox Works
When you get Botox injected into the facial muscles that furrow the skin on your forehead and around your eyes, it goes to work by blocking the chemical signals that trigger those muscles to contract. This relaxing effect prevents muscles from creasing the skin, thereby softening existing wrinkles and preventing the formation of new ones.
Many patients confuse dermal fillers with Botox because it’s common to hear the two treatment options used interchangeably. While both types of skin rejuvenation treatments are injectable and non-surgical ways to address signs of aging, they have different uses.
Dermal fillers are designed to be injected just underneath the skin. Their goal is to add volume to areas that have lost shape as a result of aging, as well as to fill in wrinkles around the mouth. Botox works at the muscular level, and is only FDA-approved treatment for use around the eye and eyebrow region.
What Are the Cosmetic Benefits of Botox?
This sought-after treatment has several benefits:
- No scars, incisions, healing, or downtime
- Tighter, smoother skin within a few days of receiving treatment
- Results that last between three and four months
- Subtle, natural-looking improvement that turns back the clock without anyone noticing you have had “work done”
Does Botox Have Any Side Effects?
When you trust the experienced Botox providers at Allure Anti-Aging and Aesthetics to perform your injections, there are minimal risks. However, it’s essential to point out that you should only get Botox under the care of a licensed medical professional, who knows how to minimize potential side effects.
If you select a provider with extensive training and qualifications, you can look forward to achieving your ideal outcome with Botox – a naturally youthful, refreshed, and worry-free facial expression.
Results and Recovery
Botox injections are a quick and practically painless 15 to 20-minute procedure that we perform in our well-appointed Huntington Beach office. We use a tiny, thin needle to inject small amounts of the neuromodulator into the areas around your eye, eyebrow, and forehead. How many injections you will need depends on the extent of the concerns you are hoping to address.
One of the advantages of Botox is that it requires no downtime for recovery, which means you will be free to resume your normal daily activities immediately after leaving our office.
To maintain your look and prevent the reappearance of your wrinkles, you’ll want to schedule regular follow-up injection sessions every three to four months. However, the good news is that when you create a routine of getting Botox injections several times a year, you may begin noticing that your wrinkles look less distinct. That benefit occurs because Botox can “re-train” your muscles to remain in a relaxed state over time.
