Botox is a non-surgical series of injections that reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face by reducing muscle activity in the treatment area. As of 2007, Botox injection is the most common cosmetic operation, with 4.6 million procedures in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
We offer Botox treatments in all of our Hawaii facilities. When you choose a qualified and experienced Botox provider like S. Larry Schlesinger, MD, FACS the results are fast, safe, and require no recovery time, allowing you to return to work immediately after treatment. Botox is popular and proven.
How Botox Works
Botox is a purified form of the protein found in Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The amount of this protein in one Botox injection bottle is not enough to make you sick, but it is enough to reduce the muscle movement in the muscles causing your lines and wrinkles. Botox treatments are proven effective, but botox is not a permanent procedure.
What Can Botox Do for Me?
If you are looking for Botox treatments to lessen your wrinkles, there are some things to learn about the procedure. Botox will not treat lines and wrinkles that do not result from muscle movement. Wrinkles in your face resulting from a loss of elasticity in your skin will not respond to Botox, but more common lines such as frown lines and crows feet which are brought upon by repeated movements can effectively be treated with Botox.
When you go for your treatment, you need to be aware that you will not see results for at least a day or two, but within one week, you will have a visible reduction in the treated areas, giving your skin a smoother appearance. These results can last up to four months (this depends greatly on the patient and the technical skill of the surgeon), but you will likely need to repeat your treatment to keep the lines from returning.
