YOUNGER LOOKING SKIN WITHOUT DOWNTIME
Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all of your emotions to the world. And a lifetime of emotions means that your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines.
Botox® injections are designed to produce remarkable results without the downtime associated with surgery and other invasive procedures. When you come to Seaside Skin Care for Botox®, our medical staff will take the time to analyze your problem areas and devise a treatment plan that works for you.
Botox® injections have been known to treat and reduce the appearance of:
- Frown lines (between the brows; glabella)
- Lips (corners of the mouth and upper lip)
- Neck (banding in the front of the neck)
- Smile lines (crow’s feet, around the outer edges of the eyes)
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY APPOINTMENT?
Botox® appointments usually take between 10-15 minutes depending on how many areas are being treated. If this is your first Botox® treatment, appointments are typically a little longer. During your initial appointment our nurse will take the time to discuss your facial goals and expectations and ensure that you are fully informed about the product. A treatment plan will then be discussed and agreed upon prior to beginning the injections.
We use a very small needle to perform Botox® injections, which makes discomfort minimal. You may feel a little pinch in the injection site. Ice can be used to numb the areas before injection, and for those that are a little more nervous, we can always use numbing cream. Most patients don’t require either.
WILL I LOOK OVERDONE?
Botox® Cosmetic is a technique sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression. Our nurses are licensed and trained medical experts in facial anatomy. We offer complimentary consultations to discuss the results you want from treatment.
HOW MUCH BOTOX® WILL I NEED?
The amount of Botox® a patient will need is impossible to tell for certain without an evaluation by one of our nurses. For a Botox® estimate specific to your facial structure, it is best to schedule a complimentary consultation.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, however it will take up to 10 days for the full effect to be achieved. Results generally last 3-4 months.
