For most people, it is inevitable to experience facial lines and wrinkles as part of their aging process. Botox Tucson is a minimally invasive skin care treatment that is fast becoming a popular solution to reduce wrinkles and boost self-confidence. Botox Tucson is a non-surgical procedure that can help improve your appearance. Botox injections can effectively help reduce wrinkles in targeted areas, allowing you to enjoy a more youthful and wrinkle-free look. If you are struggling with frown lines, forehead wrinkles, laugh lines, brow lines (11 lines), or crow’s feet, you are not alone. These types of dynamic 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 cosmetic procedures have been used by plastic surgeons for years for anti-aging treatments like wrinkle treatments, brow lifts, removal of facial creases, correcting eyelid droop etc. 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.

How Botox Works

Botox is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic procedure designed to remove wrinkles in the upper face area. 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 facial muscles. Without contracting facial muscles, lines become less evident and are prevented from worsening. The botulinum toxin helps in preventing muscle contractions. It interferes with the signals sent through the nervous system. The brain sends signals to muscles to contract, causing wrinkles on the surface of the skin—BOTOX® stops the message from being transmitted, allowing the muscles to rest and lighten the fine lines formed. The exposed skin remains smoother, producing a more youthful and wrinkle-free look. Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002, and it has been used by millions of patients since. It is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that is safe and effective for both men and women.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is a Botox procedure done?
Administering Botox injections takes only a few minutes. The healthcare professional uses a small needle for injecting Botox into specific treatment areas. The procedure causes only minor discomfort. It takes around 14 days for the Botox treatment to take full effect. It is advisable to avoid alcohol for at least 1 week before the procedure. It is also recommended to stop taking Aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory medicines two weeks before the Botox cosmetic treatment to help prevent bruising.

Is treatment painful?
Botox Treatment plan involves using a needle stick for injecting Botox. However, topical numbing cream is applied to the injected sites for patient comfort during the procedure. The needle used by the Botox injector is very fine. Patients can return to work or their daily routines immediately after this injectable treatment.

How long will the results of Botox treatment last?
You’ll see the results of your treatment within just a few days. The Botox 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 than they were before your initial treatment.

How Do Wrinkles Form?
When we are young, our skin is healthy and tight. It has the ability to fall back into place after it is pulled out of shape. The facial muscles move the skin each time we make facial expressions or we talk or we eat. Even facial movements like blinking, frowning, squinting etc. require movement of the facial skin and the muscles underneath. Over the years, as the muscles are contracted repeatedly, wrinkles start forming in these areas. These lines and wrinkles are known as dynamic wrinkles or expression wrinkles. The skin also becomes thinner and weaker over time leading to collagen deficiency, which makes wrinkles develop more easily and appear more pronounced.

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 on lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, and around the eyes, where the face is prone to indention and sagging. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease, then you should not opt for Botox treatment.

Why Choose WildBerry MD 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 WildBerry MD, 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 eyelid drooping or limited expressiveness in the eyes or restricted facial expressions. 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.
