People tend to start developing lines and wrinkles when they are in their mid-thirties. These lines, which are commonly referred to as worry lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet, make the individual appear older and can also make the person appear tired, or even mean. If you would like to restore your youthful appearance, ask Dr. Mark Ryser about BOTOX® in Lehi, Utah.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a minimally-invasive procedure that stops muscle movement in specific areas to relax the face and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Not only is BOTOX used for lines and wrinkles, it can be used in several clinical uses like treatment for spastic muscle disorders.
What is the procedure?
BOTOX stops the transmission of the nerve impulse to the muscles. In this way, it keeps the muscles from working for a period of time. Our cosmetic surgeon knows which muscles to treat and at what dosage.
Do the injections hurt?
BOTOX injections are delivered through very fine needles, so most patients tolerate the injections very well. If you are sensitive to needles, ask our cosmetic surgeon about a local anesthetic cream that can be applied one hour prior to treatment.
How long until I see results?
The results of BOTOX usually start becoming apparent in three to five days. However, results may take up to a week to start to appear. Fine winkles tend to disappear right away and deeper ones take more time.
