A safe and effective aesthetic treatment method, BOTOX has been around for many years. Since its inception, additional research and studies have proven it as a treatment for several medical conditions in the face and jawline, most frequently used to shape the browline.
BOTOX is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that safely and effectively blocks the nerve impulses that cause muscle movement. By injecting a small amount in targeted areas, BOTOX will help reduce facial lines and wrinkles caused by these contractions. Although this is the primary use for BOTOX, there are several reasons worth considering it as an aesthetic or medical treatment option.
It works fast and requires no recovery time. Injecting just a slight amount at a time, Dr. Ruff will target specific areas of your face. Since he uses a numbing cream beforehand, most patients compare the injection to a tiny bug bite. The results can be seen within 4 days. And since it is such a quick and easy procedure, with sessions taking about 15 minutes, there is no downtime or recovery process to follow.
The results from subsequent sessions build on each other. Although the effectiveness of your initial BOTOX injection wears off in about 5 months, the decreased movement and activity of the targeted muscles will cause them to slowly lose size and strength. With each session, the BOTOX becomes more effective, and the results will last longer.
BOTOX may be able to help certain medical conditions of the face. In recent studies, BOTOX is an effective treatment for certain medical conditions in the face. Since problems such as excessive sweating, jaw pain, constant teeth grinding, and even migraines, can be triggered by muscle contractions, BOTOX can decrease their activity and help alleviate the resulting pain.
