But the treatment isn’t just for the rich and famous anymore, and you don’t need to see a separate doctor to get it! Dr. Samsavar is a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, and he is certified to offer and perform BOTOX treatments to patients
What does BOTOX do?
So just what does BOTOX do? In short, it reduced the signs of aging in the face through injections. The injections derive from botulinum toxin type A, which is diluted in the injections so it is entirely safe and risk-free for patients. The injections stifle the muscles around the wrinkles, meaning the muscles are prevented from contracting at the injection site. This keeps wrinkles from forming because the muscles are contracted instead of relaxed. Relaxed muscles agitate the skin, allowing wrinkles to form. Patients will notice their skin smooth out and their wrinkles diminish shortly after undergoing the procedure.
BOTOX is best used to address wrinkles in the forehead, around the frown lines, the brows, and crow’s feet. BOTOX has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and it should always be performed by a certified doctor.
What you should expect during your BOTOX treatment:
The whole procedure is short and painless. Since it only involves a few injections, the whole process is over quickly. It is painless, so there is no need for anesthesia. Patients can return to normal activities immediately after receiving injections, so there is no downtime required. The results usually last around 5 months, and around this time patients will notice wrinkles beginning to form again on their faces. The good news is that patients can receive injections again and again without damaging their skin.
