Drc360 - Botox®
Botox is purified proteins that temporarily relax wrinkles to provide a smoother look. They can be injected in many areas including the following common sites: between the brows, the forehead, and around the eyes. There are other areas that can be injected such as in the chin (to prevent an “orange peel” look), the underarms (to reduce excessive sweating), and the nose (for bunny lines). Depending on the amount placed in the proper muscles, you will still have natural movement while maintaining a youthful look.
How It Works
Botox blocks the communication between the brain and the injected muscles. During this process, muscles lay dormant and therefore do not make active expression. After a couple of months, the blockage slowly begins to fade so that the muscles regain their activity.
What To Expect
After an analysis of your muscle movement and strength, a series of small shots are injected into the muscles. This treatment is very tolerable for patients. A precise amount of product is carefully placed into each site for maximum, lasting results. The entire procedure takes 10-15 minutes.
Length Of Results
You will begin to feel the effects 1 to 7 days after the treatment. The longevity of the product depends on three main things: your metabolism, your muscle strength, and how active those muscles are. Some people's bodies will metabolize the product very quickly and will therefore need injections more often. Similarly, the stronger the muscles are, the more product you will need. Muscles we use frequently such as around the mouth and eyes will need to be injected more often since they are more active. Typically, results last around 3- months.
Number Of Treatments
Because Botox is temporary, it is best to come in every 3-4 months to maintain optimal results. Do not wait until it completely wears off since there is a synergistic effect. We always recommend that you book a 2-week follow up.
