Koger Cosmetic Clinic & Medspa offers Botox® for men and women in Palm Beach County, including West Palm Beach, Vero Beach, Wellington, and the surrounding areas of Florida.
Botox® is a widely popular dermal injectable that is used to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. Botox® can also be effective in preventing wrinkles from forming when administered in the earlier stages of aging. Also known as botulinum toxin type A, Botox® works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in your face causing wrinkles. This helps to smooth out skin and make it appear younger and more revitalized.
About Botox® treatments
Botox® is injected directly into the target areas via a fine needle. The refined bacterium immobilizes certain muscles, effectively relaxing those areas and smoothing out unwanted wrinkles and lines. If desired, a local or topical anesthetic can be administered to minimize any discomfort, though most patients find it unnecessary. The effects of Botox® treatments commonly last three to six months, after which time patients usually return for follow-up treatments.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® can be used to prevent wrinkles, as well as temporarily eliminate them. It is a minimally invasive, virtually painless procedure that can have you looking years younger in one quick trip. Botox® can be applied to frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and more to help rejuvenate your appearance and smooth your skin. Signs of aging, sun damage, and loss of elasticity in the skin can be reversed with the revolutionary effects of Botox®.
Many patients who have yet to develop deep wrinkles or are starting to see signs of aging developing in the skin have turned to Botox® as a way to stop wrinkles before they develop. Botox®’s primary function is to temporarily freeze the muscles in the skin, forcing them to relax. When wrinkles are already present, this will cause them to soften and the face to appear younger. However, when wrinkles are barely present or just starting to form, it will freeze them and diminish their ability to reform. It is thought that using Botox® earlier in life can help to prolong the development of wrinkles in the face.
Candidates for Botox®
Botox® is ideal for anyone who wishes to prevent or reverse natural signs of aging. It can help boost your self-esteem and help you look and feel younger. If you wish to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin and want to soften a tired or grumpy expression, Botox® may be right for you.
After your Botox® treatment
Botox® is often called the “lunch-time treatment” because the procedure can last as little as 15 minutes and there is virtually no recovery time. Patients are free to return to their workplace or continue their daily routine immediately following treatment. It is recommended that you avoid vigorous exercise, rubbing the treatment area, or laying down for a few hours after treatment. Any discomfort or swelling can be treated with an ice pack.
