What should I expect from the Botox procedure?

Botox injections can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including cosmetic and medical. Most notably, Botox can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, leading many people to have increased satisfaction with the way that they look. If you are considering Botox in New Port Richey, or Trinity, FL, reach out to Dr. Brian Johnson.

What Is Botox?

Botox, also called botulinum toxin, is a muscle relaxant that works by temporarily preventing muscles from contracting, or moving, at the injection site. This is beneficial for some medical conditions, but especially to reduce the appearance of wrinkles as the muscles below the surface of the skin are the ones responsible for the formation and deepening of wrinkles on the face. Indications for treatment include wrinkles around the mouth, lines between your eyes, crow's feet at the corners of your eyes, and horizontal forehead lines. Other uses of Botox include treating severe underarm sweating, chronic migraines, overactive bladder, and eyelid spasms.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Botox in New Port Richey, and Trinity, FL, works by injecting a small amount of the botulinum toxin into a specific muscle of the face below the wrinkle site. Results usually appear within the first 24 hours and can last up to six months, depending on the person's response. Before the injections, your doctor may recommend numbing your skin, but most people do not feel any pain before, during, or after the procedure. Botox injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced dermatologist or medical professional. Most people will need follow-up injections to maintain the results over time.
