Botox Cosmetic reduces facial wrinkles in your forehead, between your eyes, and in the delicate areas around your eyes. A protein that blocks nerve impulses when injected into the facial muscles under the skin, Botox can diminish the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet that occur with natural aging.
Boise Botox Injection
What Is Botox Cosmetic?
Available at our Salt Lake City Plastic Surgery Clinic, BOTOX® injections temporarily remove crow’s feet, frown lines, and other types of facial wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are both non-surgical and minimally invasive.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is an FDA-approved substance that safely paralyzes specific muscles in the face that cause facial wrinkles. A BOTOX® injection usually lasts up to four months and injections can be repeated as necessary when facial wrinkles reappear.
The Botox Injection Procedure
At Salt Lake City Surgery Clinic, the BOTOX® injection procedure involves very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic in specific areas of the face. Almost no redness or swelling occurs following a BOTOX® injection. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes no more than 10 minutes.
After visiting our Boise Idaho , Treasure Valley office for a BOTOX® cosmetic treatment, patients may immediately return to work and resume normal activities. The BOTOX® injection will gradually take effect in three to five days. It is important that you keep your head elevated for approximately two to three hours after a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection.
The most common side effects of a BOTOX® cosmetic treatment include headache, flu-like symptoms, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea. Salt Lake City Plastic Surgery Clinic uses only FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic brand toxin which is manufactured by Allergan.
