BOTOX® in Draper, Utah
Our unique emotions are expressed through facial muscles throughout our lives. These facial expressions eventually shrink muscles causing fine lines and wrinkles called mimic wrinkles. As we age, static wrinkles from the loss of our skin’s original volume will also appear. From frown lines between the eyebrows, ‘crow’s feet’ around the outer corner of the eyes to laugh lines around the lips – BOTOX® is a safe and proven method to smooth facial wrinkles and take years off your appearance.
Targeted treatment with BOTOX® will alleviate fine lines and deep creases with results within 2 weeks. BOTOX® is well regarded as a safe and effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles worldwide. The BOTOX® injection is synthesized as a derivative of the botulinum toxin type-A, which is highly recognized in the treatment of fine lines and persistent wrinkles.
La Belle Vie Medical Care & Aesthetics offers several different non-surgical treatments to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with lasting results for a more confident and beautiful you. Give us a call today at 801-987-8384 for your BOTOX® injection consultation near Salt Lake City.
Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX®
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® injections work by temporarily paralyzing muscles below wrinkles and fine lines. The nervous signals between your brain and these muscles are blocked, halting the stimulation for the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. With this repetitive action discontinued, the muscles weaken and eliminate muscle contraction that levels out wrinkles for remarkably smooth, younger looking skin.
How Long Will BOTOX® Results Last?
While you will see results as soon as 2 days after your BOTOX® treatment, the full results will take effect within a14 days after your procedure. The wrinkle-erasing power of regular treatment can extend results as underlying muscles gradually become trained to stop contracting. Patients can expect facial smoothing to last for up to 3-4 months and may reach 5-6 months before a touch-up treatment is needed. Simply schedule a touch-up appointment with your experienced BOTOX® provider to maintain your initial results.
What can I expect during my BOTOX® appointment?
As a simple outpatient procedure, your BOTOX® treatment will only take a few minutes. Your medical provider or nurse injector will prepare the treatment areas with a non-alcohol-based cleanser followed by a topical anesthetic if requested. The use of a local anesthetic may be requested but is not necessary. The BOTOX® treatment is administered using a very fine needle to inject tiny amounts directly into the targeted muscles.
What can I expect after my BOTOX® appointment? Is there downtime?
Immediately following your treatment, the treated areas will be tender, and you may experience a minor itching sensation, redness or minimal bruising. You will be encouraged to refrain from touching or exerting unnecessary pressure on the injection sites to prevent the BOTOX® from migrating to surrounding tissue. Most patients can resume daily activities immediately after BOTOX® treatment and will not require any downtime.
The Precautions and Risks of BOTOX®
BOTOX® injections may be ineffective against deeper wrinkles caused by excessive sun exposure; your Nurse Injector will advise you of any possible ineffective results during your Consultation at La Belle Vie located in Draper, Utah. BOTOX® treatment is not advisable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients under a medication regimen that may interfere with the action of BOTOX® treatment and those with neurological disorders should consult with their primary care physician before seeking BOTOX® treatment.
