BOTOX is one of the most popular of all facial rejuvenation products. It has been developed from a bacterial toxin that temporarily halts the motion of specifically-targeted muscle strands to smooth wrinkles and lines.

The many uses of BOTOX

There are so many uses for BOTOX, from its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to helping with bladder dysfunction. BOTOX, scientifically known as botulinum toxin type A, has the ability to inhibit muscle function and muscle contraction. This can be used in small doses and specific muscles to bring about many benefits. Cosmetically speaking, it is renowned for being able to slow the aging process by preventing muscles below the skin from contracting and creating wrinkles.

What are benefits of BOTOX?

There are so many treatments available with BOTOX, but the best way to benefit from the use of BOTOX is to have it carefully administered by a trained medical professional, such as Dr. Kim or a member of her team.

BOTOX has many uses and benefits such as:

  • Reduced signs of wrinkles and lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and around the nose and mouth
  • Slows the aging process by restricting muscle contracting below areas of delicate skin that are prone to wrinkle formation
  • Can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, especially in the armpits
  • Used to treat lazy eye and eye twitching or other muscle contractions
  • Has uses in treating bladder incontinence
  • Treating some types of chronic migraine headaches

Is there any downtime with BOTOX injections?

You can expect to continue with your day as normal but be sure to avoid a few things for the first day or so. Things to avoid include:

  • Massaging the face
  • Excessive sweating or exercise
  • Sun exposure
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Getting other facial treatments such as a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or laser treatment

It may take a few days for the results to start to become apparent and they will continue to develop over the coming weeks.

How long do the effects of BOTOX last?

The effects of BOTOX can last in the range of three to four months. Many people choose to schedule maintenance treatments in advance so that they can maintain the results from the injections. Eventually, some people only require injections once or twice a year to maintain their results.
