Considering BOTOX in Des Moines, Iowa?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified therapeutic treatment that removes lines and creases in the upper part of the face by inactivating specific muscles that pull on the skin.
You may be a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic if you have any of the following conditions:
- Frown lines (vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows)
- Forehead creases (horizontal forehead line)
- “Crow’s Feet” near the eyes
- Platysmal bands, which appear in the neck as thick bands or “cords”
- Dimply Chins or lip wrinkles
How are BOTOX® Cosmetic injections performed?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are quick and associated with very little pain. The simple office procedure typically takes 10 minutes or less and the actual injections take only seconds. The number of botox injections you’ll need depends on the areas that are affected. Your surgeon will target the hyper-kinetic muscles, that is, the over-active muscles that are responsible for movement and expression.
How will I look and feel right after the Botox injections?
Though it is unusual, you may experience some mild discomfort, bruising and/or swelling at the injection site. You may return to work or your normal daily activity immediately after the treatment.
What should I know about my results?
The effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic may take several days to develop. The duration of the results may vary. However in general, you can expect your results to last for three to five months.
