Ask almost anyone who’ve received Botox injections, and you’ll most likely find that they love the results. What’s not to love? Botox injections are among the most sought-after cosmetic treatments worldwide. It is even approved by the FDA for temporarily erasing wrinkles. Botox injections, however, are not suitable for everyone.
A consultation with your dermatologist here at South Nassau Dermatology in our Levittown, NY, Oceanside, NY, or Long Beach, NY, office will determine if Botox or other cosmetic treatments are right for you. Until then, here’s what you need to know about Botox.
A purified neurotoxin, Botox is produced by a certain bacteria type called clostridium botulinum. Don’t be fooled by the term neurotoxin, however, because Botox is only dangerous if ingested. With that said, when tiny amounts of Botox are injected skillfully by an experienced professional, what you get are anti-aging results through smoothening existing wrinkles and fine lines.
Essentially, Botox functions by temporarily inhibiting your neurons from interacting with certain facial muscles, making those muscles immovable. Since the muscles can’t shift underneath your skin, which is the reason that lines and creases form, they will remain immovable for several months. You will only require simple retreatments to maintain your results.
Likewise, Botox injections are very simple and quick. You can head to your dermatologist in our Levittown, NY, Oceanside, NY, or Long Beach, NY, office, and get Botox injections in your lunch hour. You also won’t have to worry about downtime. The results are also very fast, and most individuals who’ve had Botox return for routine retreatments for maintenance.
