Are you seeking wrinkle treatment in Langley, Surrey or the Lower Mainland? If so, Clayton Market Dental can help. We can provide BOTOX® at our Surrey location. BOTOX® is a safe, well-proven procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The BOTOX® procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for BOTOX® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. BOTOX® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
Reasons for Considering a BOTOX® TreatmenT
BOTOX® can be used to treat a number of facial areas. If you’ve noticed that your skin is beginning to show signs of aging, now is the time to schedule an appointment. Call us today if you’re ready to reduce and improve any of the following:
Excessive facial wrinkles • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead
Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes • A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows
GENERAL BOTOX® Procedure
The procedure works by altering the facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. Typically a small amount (1-2 cc’s) of BOTOX® is injected into the area of the wrinkle. BOTOX® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a BOTOX® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure. The injection process takes only about 10 minutes and the result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out.
Depending on the location and severity of the wrinkles, your doctor will decide the appropriate number of injections, but most treatments require 3 to 5 in order to affect all the muscles involved. After the injections, you can return to your normal day as there is minimal downtime required. You will begin to notice the smoothing results within 24 to 48 hours of the treatment. The effects of a BOTOX® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.
BOTOX® RECOVERY PROCESS
Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the BOTOX® procedure, however following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after BOTOX® injections.
