Botox

If you are struggling with forehead wrinkles, brow lines (11 lines), or crow’s feet, you are not alone. These types of wrinkles in the upper face are some of the first to appear, and they may immediately give away your age. Botox cosmetic treatment is effective in addressing these common signs of aging.

Botox has been used by doctors for years for treating wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is the brand name of a product made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Doctors use the toxin in very small doses to treat several health problems. Botox is the first injectable botulinum toxin product.

Injections of botulinum toxin are used to treat health issues like:

  • Facial wrinkles
  • Excess underarm sweating
  • Cervical dystonia (a neurological condition causing severe contractions in the neck and shoulder muscle)
  • Blepharospasm (unstoppable blinking of eyes)
  • Strabismus (misalignment of eyes)
  • Chronic migraine
  • Overactive bladder
How Botox Works

Botox is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment designed to address wrinkles in the upper face. It is not a dermal filler. Rather, it works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to appear in certain parts of the face. Botox is injected into the facial muscles, helping to block nerve impulses and relax the muscles. Without contracting facial muscles, lines become less evident and are prevented from worsening.

Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002, and it has been used by millions of patients since. It is minimally invasive, and safe and effective for both men and women.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a Botox procedure done?

Giving Botox injections involves only a few minutes. The healthcare professional uses a small needle for injecting Botox into specific muscles. The procedure causes only minor discomfort.

It takes around 7 to 14 days for the Botox treatment to take full effect. It is advisable to avoid alcohol for at least 1 week before the procedure. Patients are required to stop taking Aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory medicines two weeks before the Botox treatment to help prevent bruising.

Is treatment painful?

Treatment will involve a needle stick. However, topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin for patient comfort during the procedure. The needle used for the injection is also very fine. Patients can return immediately to their routines after treatment.

How long will the results last?

You’ll see the results of your treatment within just a few days. The results will continue to improve over the course of approximately 4 weeks, and may remain for up to 6 months. You can see continued improvement of fine lines and wrinkles with additional injections. Not receiving a secondary treatment after 3-6 months will have no adverse effects. You will simply see wrinkles become more pronounced as they were before your initial treatment.

Is Botox right for me? Although many patients are candidates for Botox injections, it is not for everyone. You must be a healthy adult between the ages of 18 and 65 to qualify for treatment. Botox works best along the brow, where the face is prone to indention and sagging. For more information whether it is right for you, schedule a consultation with us. Is Botox right for me?

Is Botox safe?

Botox is a safe, effective treatment. However, one should receive Botox only under an experienced doctor’s care. The Botox injections need to be placed and inserted precisely to avoid side effects or allergic reactions. Botox treatment, if not administered correctly, can be dangerous. A skilled and certified doctor can correctly advise on the procedure and help determine if it is suitable to any individual’s body needs and health. At WildBerryMD, all injectables are administered by our highly experienced and trained physician, Dr. Azam.

Why Choose WildBerryMD for Your Botox Treatment?

You can find Botox treatment offered in medical spas, plastic surgeons’ offices, and a variety of other clinical settings. Why should you choose us for your Botox injections? Here at WildBerryMD, Dr. Azam uses a unique technique for administering Botox that ensures more predictable, natural looking results. Often, Botox is injected in locations surrounding the targeted treatment site. Therefore, the solution has a higher chance of moving into areas where it shouldn’t. This is why you might see Botox treatments end with droopy eyes or limited expressiveness in the eyes. However, Dr. Azam uses a greater number of smaller injections within the targeted muscle. As a result, we see more successful treatments among our patients.
