BOTOX® cosmetic injections involve using a diluted blend of botulinum to smooth features like wrinkles in the face area. If the muscles that are used to make facial expressions are partially paralyzed, the face can’t make those expressions and wrinkles can’t form. We offer BOTOX in Carrollton that will help diminish the wrinkles and make you look younger, without the plastic look that other procedures can create. Call us in Carrollton and North Dallas suburbs today for more info.
Clostridium botulinum is used in the medical aesthetics world for beauty purposes and is the bacterium that BOTOX cosmetic is derived from. BOTOX is one of the most common forms of non-surgical aesthetic treatment. Besides being used for wrinkles, it is also used to help with conditions like eye twitching, neck contractures, migraines, spasticity, overactive bladder, and excessive underarm sweating. Contact our Carrollton and North Dallas suburbs office today for details.
Years ago, medical aesthetics professionals noticed that botulinum toxin is beneficial for cosmetic purposes, specifically to diminish glabellar lines, which appear between the eyebrows. However, in addition to aesthetic issues, we also offer BOTOX injections for pain relief. Because it interferes with the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, the injection can help diminish the effects of severe headaches. The effects of BOTOX treatments wear off over time but can be maintained by coming for injections at our Carrollton and North Dallas suburbs office every three to six months.
Though most of our patients in Carrollton don’t report feeling much pain when getting BOTOX, anesthesia is always an option that is available. Our Carrollton providers use a thin needle for BOTOX injections. It is best not to rub the area for 24 hours in order to keep the injection in place. It might take up to four days for the effects to kick in, and full results should be apparent within two weeks. Treatments don’t last forever, but we offer maintenance shots that you can get in Carrollton and North Dallas suburbs every three to six months.
