How Does Botox® Cosmetic Work?
It works by reducing the muscle contractions that cause those persistent lines and wrinkles that have developed over time.
What is the Treatment Like?
Botox® Cosmetic is a quick, minimally invasive treatment. No anesthesia is required, although the doctor can numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting for your comfort.
Dr. Bloch will perform the procedure to you in just a few minutes. You will receive the injections only at sites where the targeted muscles are located. Only a specialist can perform this procedure because there are numerous muscles in your face. The Botox injections are required only for the muscles that cause wrinkles. Muscles that control your facial expressions should not be targeted by these injections.
Dr. Bloch will determine the extent of your wrinkles and facial features to give you the right number of injections. The results of the wrinkle treatment may be noticed within three days but are fully evident after a week.
How long does it last?
You can expect to see a noticeable improvement within days after your treatment. The treated area may continue to improve for up to two weeks. Visible results have been shown to last up to four – six months. After that, many patients are ready to return for a follow-up treatment.
Are there any side effects?
This wrinkle treatment procedure has minor side effects like temporary bruising or headache that may last between 24 to 48 hours. Some patients may develop drooping of eyelids if Botox moves around injected sites. You should avoid rubbing the injected sites or lying down for too long. Dr. Bloch will provide all the advice you need and performs the procedure to minimize any possible risks. The doctor makes sure you are the right candidate for the procedure. It is not done for those breastfeeding, pregnant or suffering from neurological disease.
