Botox is FDA approved to treat wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes), and what’s known as the ‘angry “11s’, or the two vertical lines just above the nose.
In addition, for those who suffer from the embarrassing issue of excess underarm sweating, known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis, Botox can restore your youthful appearance and improve your day-to-day confidence.
In a class of drugs called neuromodulators, Botox works by gently inhibiting muscle movement.
Over time and with repeated action, several muscles may cause lines to appear on the face. Over time, these lines become permanent and cause wrinkles. By altering the movement of the muscles, these wrinkles become relaxed and decrease in appearance.
This cosmetic treatment is great for women and men who are looking to improve fine lines, deeper wrinkles of the face, as well as prevent signs of aging. For an optimal result, you must not be pregnant, breastfeeding, and be in relatively good health.
Dr. Parcells is specialty trained in cosmetic procedures and is highly experienced in using Botox to treat signs of facial aging. She understands your time is valuable.
For your first Botox visit, plan to spend 30 minutes in the office to get an in-depth facial analysis, pre-procedural photographs, and recommendations regarding your treatment. Once you’ve established care with Parcells Plastic Surgery, subsequent visits can be as quick as 15 minutes, and can even be accommodated during your lunch break, or in between running errands.
There are extremely limited potential negative side effects to Botox, especially when it is administered by someone like Dr. Parcells: A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has extensive experience in the use of Botox.
On the positive side, when you have the treatment on a regular basis, you’ll experience the benefits of Botox, namely, maintaining a youthful appearance along with appropriate mobility and expression. No frozen face!
Botox injections are administered by a small needle.
It may sting for just a moment, but the procedure is relatively quick and extremely tolerable. If you’re worried--don’t be. Simply come 15 minutes early, and a topical numbing cream will be applied to your face to make the procedure even easier./p>
It takes approximately 2 weeks for Botox to take full effect, and generally lasts about 10-12 weeks.
For most patients, Dr. Parcells asks that you refrain from wearing makeup for a few hours and avoid other facial treatments for a few days after the procedure. Depending on your medical history Dr. Parcells may make additional recommendations.
If you are considering Botox, it is important to work with a qualified physician.
