YOU'VE DEFINITELY HEARD OF IT, BUT WHAT ACTUALLY IS BOTOX®?
Botox® is a cosmetic treatment that will reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and deep lines by relaxing facial muscles, so wrinkles can soften and diminish. The active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, has been FDA-approved since 2002. This neurotoxin freezes the communication between nerves and muscles by blocking the signal path. As a result, the muscles no longer contract as intensely. Simply put: wave goodbye to wrinkles!
IS BOTOX® RIGHT FOR ME?
Whether you’re looking to fix existing wrinkles or prevent new ones from forming, Botox® is a great option. This quick procedure is a fast fix that combats crow’s feet, forehead lines, laugh lines, and other signs of aging.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM TREATMENTS?
During your consultation, we will meet with you to understand your aesthetic goals and determine a unique treatment plan. The procedure itself is quick: the injections take less than ten minutes. A topical anesthetic may be used to minimize discomfort and there is zero downtime. Keep in mind that choosing a highly skilled injector is a must! Like great works of art, the results come from the artist, not the paint. At New England Skin Center, we’re proud to provide the best results for your individual needs.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE MY RESULTS?
Real results may be noticeable within 24 to 48 hours, but peak results will become apparent after two weeks. Once the Botox® kicks in, results can last up to four months.
