BOTOX | Hartford | Avon
Do your wrinkles make you look older than you are?
BOTOX is currently the world’s most popular non-surgical cosmetic medical treatment. The most common use for BOTOX is for treating lines and wrinkles around the eyes. Most of the lines and wrinkles that form around the eyes are the result of facial expressions. Each time we smile, frown, or raise our brows in surprise, our facial muscles contract and crease the skin. When these facial expressions are repeated over and over again for years and years, lines and wrinkles eventually form, making people look older, angry, and/or tired.
BOTOX is essentially an injectable muscle relaxant. When injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles, it relaxes the muscles and reduces and often eliminates the wrinkles.
The most common BOTOX treatments are crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyes, and horizontal forehead lines. BOTOX can also be used to achieve a beautiful brow lift and has many other uses on the lower face and neck.
The results of BOTOX look natural and typically last 3-4 months, although many people find that it lasts longer with repeated use over time.
BOTOX has become a popular treatment in recent years for treating lip lines or “smoker’s lines” as well as for enhancing the shape of the upper lip. By relaxing the muscles above the lip just slightly, upper lip lines will soften or disappear altogether. Only a small amount of BOTOX is required to produce a dramatic effect that lasts 3-4 months.
Botox for Hyperhidrosis (Underarm Sweating)
BOTOX® neurotoxin treatment helps control the symptoms of severe underarm sweating when topical medicines do not work well enough by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. BOTOX® injections are expected to temporarily stop the production of excessive sweat in the treated areas only. Sweat continues to be produced elsewhere.
During the procedure, the Clinician injects a small amount of BOTOX® into the affected underarm area through a very fine needle. Approximately 15 injections are made to the underarm area. The actual procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes and lasts up to 201 days or 6 and half months. You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within 4 weeks of your first treatment.
