Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are the premier injectables for patients that would like the results of plastic surgery without the pain or downtime that is often associated with more invasive procedures. At Facial & Oral Surgery Institute we offer Botox and other injections along with other non-surgical, non-invasive treatments, providing temporary, but effective cosmetic improvements. Botox injections can be used for the reduction of fine lines around the eyes and other injectable procedures such as facelifts or browlifts.
Aside from cosmetic benefits, injectables can also assist patients who suffer from chronic migraine headaches. These practically non-invasive injections are quick and straightforward, showing instant results and minimizing your downtime, allowing you to return to work or play right away.
Botox: Capturing the Essence of Youth
Youth is fleeting, but modern medicine is rapidly catching up. Today, we can actually erase some of the visible signs of aging. The right clinic and the right practitioner of the cosmetic arts can produce stunning results - effectively dialing back the clock decades or more. Imagine how you want your face, your eyes, your lips, or your cheeks to look, and it can be so. This is the world we live in today. Where once beauty was a matter of random luck and circumstance, now beauty can be created. Natural features can be enhanced and accentuated. Undesirable features can be minimized and eliminated. Beauty is now in your hands.
Your Face, Reimagined
One of the most common treatment options for recapturing visible youth is Botox. It’s no accident that Botox is a household name, and one of the most widely practiced cosmetic procedures in the world. Botox is safe, effective, minimally invasive, and one of the most widely available treatments for reducing wrinkles and other visible signs of aging. The treatment is primarily used for smoothing out wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and forehead. Interestingly, the popular cosmetic injection also has a number of other practical uses both FDA-approved and off-label, from mitigating chronic migraines to treating cold hands. As it turns out, injecting tiny amounts of what is essentially a potent neurotoxin can be incredibly useful.
Botox works by relaxing the muscles that contribute to the dynamic wrinkles on your face. By paralyzing these muscles and preventing them from pulling the skin into furrows, a successful procedure can maintain the appearance of smooth skin for months at a time, dramatically improving the overall look and feel of a patient’s face. It’s so effective, in fact, that Botox is increasingly being utilized by younger men and women. A majority of facial plastic surgeons have seen an increase in the number of patients who are under 30 years of age in recent years. As it turns out, even the young want to look younger.
Botox: Perfectly Safe
Botox is one of the safest cosmetic enhancement treatments on the market and one of the most effective. Yet it may surprise some to know that the chemicals employed are derived from the toxins produced by the very bacteria responsible for botulism. However, like viewing a great white shark in an aquarium, or explosions on a Hollywood set, there is very little actual danger. An experienced practitioner will know precisely where to inject the treatment to target only the specific muscles without reducing the range of facial expressions. While incredibly safe and effective, it’s still important to choose the right clinic and the right doctors wisely. After all, beauty is subjective and cosmetic enhancement is an art form. If you want the best, most aesthetic, most satisfying results, choose the best artist.
Common Facial Defects Treated by Botox
Some of the most common facial defects treated by Botox include crow’s feet, worry lines, forehead wrinkles, and laugh lines around the mouth. Once the Botox is injected by a professional, results will be visible within days and last for up to four months. Treated muscles will eventually regain function by the end of this period of time. However, they can be reinjected to retain results. By maintaining a regular schedule of treatments every few months, pursuers of beauty can capture a bit of their youth in near perpetuity. Youth may be fleeting, but with a little professional assistance and a dab of artistry, it can be captured for a bit longer.
