To diminish the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from occurring on the forehead and upper face, Revive Robotic Hair Solutions in Oklahoma City, OK is pleased to offer BOTOX to area patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment offers outstanding results and is popular among both women and men. BOTOX can make a dramatic improvement to still facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement from the contracting muscles on the forehead and upper region. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic creases can still remain. The muscle relaxer BOTOX is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly administered by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Clinton Webster between the brows where the number "11s" appear, around the eyes ("Crow's feet"), and throughout the forehead.
BOTOX injections are used for patients who hope to diminish and soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face in a nonsurgical manner. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventative anti-aging treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It is an effective noninvasive solution if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It is also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option.
BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure right in our office. If it is your first time to visit our office to get BOTOX, we typically perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make several expressions using your upper face, including frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by cool compressions to help minimize discomfort and bruising. Patients may prefer aids like ice and numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but this usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which patients may get back to to their usual day as soon as they feel able.
What to Expect
Following the BOTOX injection, patients can to return to their regular schedule, although strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for a minimum of a day. Patients are also advised to sleep with their head propped up for at least one night and to avoid touching their face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for a couple of days, although most patients should not have any lasting or serious side effects from wrinkle relaxer treatments. In the majority of patients, it typically takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who receive BOTOX are so pleased after their initial treatment and thrilled to see their results that we almost always see them every couple of months for a touch-up. We appreciate having our patients every visit as we become a part of helping them look smooth and revitalized!
