What is Botox® Cosmetic Treatment?
Behind the brand name, Botox® is known as botulinus toxin A. This is a therapeutic mucle-relaxing agent derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. The FDA approved the treatment of Botox® initially for treatment of eye muscle spasms. Later on, Botox® Cosmetic treatment was approved for other aspects of facial skin rejuvenation due to its popularity and high cosmetic treatment value.
The Botox® Cosmetic Procedure
Your qualified physician at PealFection Dentistry in Urbana will use a very fine needle for a quick cosmetic injection. The injection is centered directly on the facial skin and muscle areas in question. Although you may experience very brief, mild discomfort during the injection, the treatment is extremely safe and effective, and takes only a few minutes of your time. Recovery time is nearly immediate allowing you continue about your day after the procedure.
Botox® Cosmetic Results Duration
You may experience mild bruising or tender skin and muscle prior to a Botox® procedure. These post treatment feelings are absolutely normal, and usually go away within a few days to a week in some cases. Results from a Botox® Cosmetic treatment may last anywhere from three to four months. Although, repeated treatments usually prolong and extend desired results.
