Botulism toxin is a widely used injectable compound that has both cosmetic and medical purposes. The primary ingredient in Botox and comparable products is this neuromodulator, which interferes with motor nerve signals telling muscles when to flex. The muscles you target with Botox stop movements, both conscious and unconscious, while the drug is active.
Involuntary muscle movements are linked to several conditions and cosmetic features, including wrinkles and fine lines. Most people are familiar with Botox for its wrinkle-minimizing abilities, and Dr. Lo can tell you if the wrinkles you want to target are treatable with Botox injections.
As a cosmetic injectable, Botox treats dynamic wrinkles. These are wrinkles that appear due to your facial muscle movements and expressions, like smiling or grimacing. You can use Botox to treat common dynamic wrinkles such as:
Beyond cosmetics, Botox works in a similar way to treat various medical conditions. You can use Botox to treat conditions like chronic migraine, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and excessive sweating with little to no downtime.
The duration of results from Botox depends on what you use the treatment for. Generally speaking, you can anticipate results for at least three months and up to a full year. For wrinkles, Botox tends to last for three to six months depending on the individual.
Once the results of your first Botox session fade away, you can contact Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness for additional follow-up injections. If you’re happy with the way your results turn out, you can make Botox injections a regular part of your routine.
Dr. Lo uses both Allergan Botox and Merz Xeomin at Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness. After carefully mapping out the injections with consideration to your facial anatomy, Dr. Lo injects the selected product into your neuromuscular tissue. She may offer you a numbing cream or ice before the procedure to minimize discomfort.
It takes 24-72 hours for the results of your Botox injections to appear in their entirety. Dr. Lo gives you instructions on how to care for yourself for the first 24 hours after the injections at Aftrglo Beauty and Wellness. For returning patients, Dr. Lo participates in the Alle and Xperience patient reward programs.
