Wondering where your youthful glow went? Wishing you inherited wrinkle-free genes? Don’t we all!
While it may seem easier to treat unwanted wrinkles and fine lines with over-the-counter creams and lotions, it’s rare to see instant or even long-term improvement over time.
On the other hand, surgical options such as face-lifts often break the bank and over-deliver with unexpected results.
Have the benefits of Botox ever crossed your mind? For a simple and instantly facial smoothing treatment, Botox offers the promise of all the creams and lotions, is budget-friendly, and actually delivers.
Botox treatments won’t interrupt your busy schedule- they are often called the “lunchtime” cosmetic procedure—a patient can stop in during his or her lunch break, and head back to work when it’s complete.
Although the procedure is quick, the results last for about three to nine months, depending on the patient’s metabolism.
Afraid of needles? Patients often describe the feeling of being injected as “a small pinch.” Afraid of a small pinch? Doctors are sometimes able to apply a topical numbing cream before administering the treatment. But in general, the procedure usually only takes ten minutes- it will be over before you know it. Best of all, most patients report no soreness during recovery.
Migraine sufferers, patients with muscle spasms in neck and shoulders, or people who suffer from excess sweat have all reported tremendous relief from their ailments- another great benefit from Botox treatments.
Jaw Tension, lockjaw and TMJ sufferers may also experience elimination of pain when Botox injections are administered by a doctor.
