Treatment with Botox Asheville NC
When Botox Cosmetic is injected into the muscles of the brow, these muscles relax because their nerves can no longer signal them to contract. Without constant tugging from the muscles beneath, the skin smoothes out and wrinkles are greatly diminished. Botox Cosmetic is indicated for use in adults ages 18 to 65 who are in good health.
A true “lunch hour” aesthetic procedure, an application of Botox Cosmetic is quick and requires no recovery time. Once the patient is approved and counseled, the doctor will administer injections. The number and placement of the injections depends upon the patient’s problem area.
The needles used are small and very fine. Some doctors apply an anesthetic cream or an ice pack before the injections, but even without this numbing most patients report little to no discomfort. There is no redness or swelling, and after treatment, patients are able to return to their usual routine.
Most patients see marked improvement in their facial lines within just a few days. The results last for an average of four months. If follow-up treatments are not desired, the results will slowly fade until the facial lines return to their original appearance.
On average, each treatment with Botox Cosmetic is quite affordable. Allergan, the maker of Botox Cosmetic, offers the Brilliant Distinctions® program, which allows members to exchange earned points for savings on Botox Cosmetic and other treatments.
Is Botox Cosmetic the right choice for you? While extremely safe, there are some conditions that prevent its use. Botox Cosmetic should not be used by anyone who is allergic to any of the ingredients, or who is allergic to any similar medication. Do not use Botox Cosmetic if there is a skin infection at the injection site.
Be certain to inform your doctor about any condition affecting the nerves or muscles, or if there is difficulty in swallowing or breathing. Make your physician aware of any other medical conditions you may have and any medications taken, including over-the-counter drugs, herbals and vitamins. Side-effects are very rare and generally mild, but report any unusual reaction to your physician promptly.
