BOTOX ® has become one of the most popular treatments for facial lines and wrinkles, and for many good reasons. This virtually painless injectable treatment is particularly effective on "frown lines", or the lines on the forehead or between the eyebrows caused by furrowing the brow. Botox also commonly treats the area around the mouth leaving the patient looking rejuvenated.
While there are many reasons why Botox maintains to be the most requested cosmetic treatment in Northeast Philadelphia, here are our top 3:
1. Botox is Painless and Easy
One of the number one questions that we get is, "Will it be painful"? Before BOTOX ® shots are administered, a numbing agent is applied to the skin, making the actual injections virtually painless - whew! A typical treatment takes less than an hour, and can be performed in our office.
2. Botox Provides Fast Results
How fast do you start seeing results after your BOTOX ® treatment? Quite simply, results can be seen almost right away. While optimum results take a short amount of time to take full effect, a visible difference can be seen as soon as the treatment is finished. Wrinkles will appear softer, and after a short time, will virtually disappear. After about a week, the treatment will have reached its optimum effect, and will last several months, as the paralysis effect wears off, allowing the facial muscles to contract once again. At this point, wrinkles will again become visible.
3. No Downtime
After a treatment, patients can leave the office and go about a normal day without need for any downtime. Some swelling, redness or bruising can occur after treatment, but these side effects are usually minimal. As with any cosmetic procedure, following the doctor's instructions will increase the effectiveness of the treatment, as well as reduce recovery time.
