Wrinkles tend to begin appearing in the upper area of the face when an individual is in their mid-thirties. These lines, which are commonly referred to as worry lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet, make the individual appear older and can also make the person appear tired, or even mean. If you would like to restore the youthful appearance of your face, ask Dr. Stosich, Dr. Fullmer, and Dr. Maak about BOTOX® in Salt Lake City, Utah.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a minimally-invasive procedure that stops muscle movement in specific areas to relax the face and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and lines. In addition to being used for lines and wrinkles, Botulinum Toxin, or BOTOX, can be used in several clinical uses.
What is the BOTOX procedure?
BOTOX stops the transmission of the nerve impulse to the muscles. In this way, it keeps the muscles from working for a period of time. Our cosmetic surgeons are educated in the anatomy of the muscles of the face and know which muscles to treat and at what dosage.
Do the injections hurt?
BOTOX injections are delivered through very fine needles. Because of this, most patients tolerate the injections very well. If you are sensitive to needles, ask our cosmetic surgeons about a local anesthetic cream that can be applied before treatment.
When will I see results?
BOTOX results usually start to appear in three to five days. However, results may take up to a week to start to become apparent. Fine wrinkles tend to disappear right away and deeper ones tend to take more time.
