BOTOX® is a safe, FDA- approved injectable that is used for facial rejuvenation. Many call it a “lunchtime procedure” because the entire process is very fast. Additionally, many patients see noticeable results within 48 hours!
Why Patients Choose BOTOX®
If you’ve ever wanted to refresh your appearance without the stress, cost, and downtime associated with surgery, then BOTOX® may be for you. Our experienced injectors will gently and precisely inject BOTOX® into the desired areas safely and effectively. BOTOX® may be used in the following areas:
- Crow’s feet near the eyes
- Smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Worry lines on the forehead
- “Elevens” between the eyebrows
Wondering where wrinkles come from? Creases on the forehead and frown lines between the eyebrows are the result of muscle contractions combined with a loss of skin elasticity. This loss of elasticity can be caused by sun exposure, hormone loss, genetics, or the aging process. The creases and lines that form in the skin due to decreased elasticity can make you look tired, stressed, and older than your age. Who wants to look old and tired? We’re sure you don’t! Let OneLife Medical Center’s team help you look as young and refreshed as you feel.
How it Works
BOTOX® works on the muscles under the skin to smooth moderate to severe facial lines, and interrupts the signals between nerves and muscles, resulting in a reduction in the muscle contractions that cause frown lines. The forehead, eye area (aka “crow’s feet”), nose or “bunny” lines, and fine lines around the lips are given a smoother and more youthful appearance, while untreated areas of the face remain unaffected. In fact, certain areas of the face, such as the eyebrows, can appreciate a nice lift and make your eyes bigger and brighter. BOTOX® injections are delivered by a non-surgical injection and do not require a hospital setting. It is virtually painless, and there is no recovery time.
BOTOX® offers temporary line and wrinkle reduction and lasts, on average, for 3-4 months. Side effects are rare and usually limited to the site of injection, which includes mild redness, inflammation, and bruising (can last 1-7 days). Most people who are happy with the results of an initial BOTOX® treatment decide to repeat the treatment regularly. Regular injections can bring improve your appearance, making you look rested and refreshed – without surgery!
How long is the Recovery?
You may resume normal activities immediately. Vigorous exercise or lying flat may be restricted for a few hours following treatment. It is generally recommended to remain upright for 4 hours after injections and avoid aerobic activity for a few hours. Many patients undergo BOTOX® treatment during their lunch break and return to work afterward.
