Who Should Consider Botox?
Botox treatments are best for people between the ages of 25 and 65 who are looking to remove or reduce wrinkles on the face or neck. Both men and women benefit from carefully administered Botox injections. Often, people over the age of 65 tend to have "static" wrinkles that do not change when relaxing the face. Other procedures would be better for those individuals.
Each person is different and should schedule a consultation with Dr. DeMars to determine what treatment plan is right for them.
How Does Botox Work?
Facial wrinkles are caused by the contractions of muscles beneath the skin. Botox Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the facial muscles, causing them to weaken and relax, creating a smooth look. Results are not permanent and last about three to five months. As the Botox begins to wear off, wrinkles may gradually reappear. To maintain the desired look patients may require three to four injections per year. However, with repeat treatments, the effects may last longer, requiring fewer treatments.
Does Botox Hurt?
Botox patients may experience minimal discomfort; however, Dr. DeMars can apply a cold pack or numbing cream that can make the injections virtually painless. There is no recovery time and the entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are able to leave the office and go about their normal day.
