Tulsa Botox Treatment
Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all of your emotions to the world. And a lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow’s feet, and laugh lines.
All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today’s technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face. With BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you will be able to see a visible improvement to the wrinkles on your face – and you’ll have smoother skin for up to four months.
We administer small injections directly into the area you’d like to improve. If you’re concerned about pain, or have sensitive facial areas, we’ll be happy to apply an ice pack or anesthetic cream to the area we’ll be working on.
The purified protein from the injection goes to work immediately on the facial muscles that are causing wrinkles. You will begin to notice visible improvements over the next month.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can improve:
- Worry lines in forehead
- Lines between the eyebrows
- Smile lines
- Laugh lines, from nose to mouth
- Crow’s feet
We welcome you to come in and talk about if BOTOX– Cosmetic treatment is right for you, and we’ll be glad to answer any and all of your questions.
Botox® works great for lines caused by muscle movement. These lines include the frown lines, the forehead lines, and the crow’s feet around the eyes and nose. It is a quick and simple injection that can be done anytime in one of our convenient New Jersey or New York offices. Side effects are extremely uncommon, and it is simply repeated every four months on average for a wonderful, natural result.
Ever since the FDA approved Botox for cosmetic use seven years ago, women (and men) have been singing Botox’s praises. The masses aren’t deterred by its short shelf life — effects last only three to six months — or the need for ongoing shots costing $300 to $1,000 per injection site or area. Nearly 3 million Botox treatments are administered in the United States every year.
Here’s why: This purified form of botulinum A toxin — the same one that causes botulism — works fountain-of-youth-type magic by stopping wrinkles where they start, says Monica Halem, MD, a dermatologist and assistant clinical professor at Columbia University Medical Center, affiliated with New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Botox blocks the nerves that contract muscles so that wrinkles can’t form, and it softens existing wrinkles and prevents them from deepening.
As a result, Botox can keep you looking far younger than your years, which has its advantages.
Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set. Wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. “If you don’t move the muscle too much, you won’t form the wrinkle. Botox is preventive.
Botox side effects
But is Botox safe? Yes, Botox has been used [for medical purposes] for 20 years. Cosmetic botox doses are very small. Hold off if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, though. toxins
Side effects are possible: headaches, bruising, and pain at the site of injection, and in fewer than 1% of cases, drooping eyelids or eyebrows that return to their natural position within a few months. You can’t control all of those problems, follow these tips to avoid looking weird instead of wonderful:
Don’t be a pill. Bruising at the site of the needle injection is more common in people taking aspirin or ibuprofen; these medications thin the blood and increase bleeding (it’s the blood that causes the bruise). Skip the pills for two weeks in advance of your Botox treatment for skin that looks smooth, not black and blue.
Go easy. To avoid the plastered, I-can’t-quite-smile look, ask your doctor for a Botox-light treatment. The units of Botox used are adjusted to give you a more natural and expressive appearance.
Don’t party on. Spas and Botox parties may sound like a fun way to fight Father Time, but injections are no laughing matter. Well-done Botox treatments require knowledge of facial anatomy and a skilled hand.
