Botox has revolutionized anti-aging treatments! A safe, simple and effective injection, Botox can take years off your face by dramatically reducing the appearance of unwanted wrinkles caused by facial expressions.
You need a knowledgeable, experienced surgeon in an appropriate setting to administer Botox injections. Apex’s Facial Aesthetic Center specializes in non-surgical cosmetic treatments such as Botox, and Dr. Charlotte Marvil performs all injections of Botox personally. Dr. Marvil has vast experience with Botox injections.
What is Botox?
Botox is a non-surgical, minimally invasive injection that helps reduce the signs of aging. Treatments typically take 10 minutes to complete and require no anesthetic, allowing you to resume your normal day-to-day activities immediately after treatment. A typical Botox treatment can last three or four months, sometimes longer depending on the client and the area treated.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox blocks nerve impulses and temporarily limits the muscles that cause facial wrinkles. These relaxed facial muscles create smooth skin – softening lines and wrinkles to reduce the signs of aging. The result is a smoother, more refreshed face! Botox is a simple, no-downtime procedure that is safe, effective and provides natural-looking results.
Botox is best for “active” or “dynamic” wrinkles – the ones that appear when your face is animated, like the forehead, furrows (“elevens”), and crow’s feet. “Static” wrinkles, which appear when your face is not in motion, are best treated with dermal fillers like Juvederm.
Not only does Botox reduce the signs of aging, but it has also been known to treat:
- Chronic migraines
- Overactive bladder
- Crossed eyes
- Severe sweating
- Other conditions that affect the muscles
What Happens During the Treatment?
Here at Apex Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dr. Marvil offers free initial consultations for patients interested in non-surgical cosmetic procedures. This allows her to get to know you, discuss your medical history and goals, and evaluate your areas of concern so she can recommend the best options to help you make the changes you want.
If Botox is a new concept to you, Dr. Marvil will explain in detail at your consultation how it is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, crow’s feet, and smoker’s lines.
After you are determined to be a good candidate for treatment, Dr. Marvil makes injections into the muscles that produce the wrinkles. The needle is so fine that you do not need anesthesia. The number of injections that you receive will depend on size and extent of the treatment area. Different wrinkles may require a different number of injections. The typical treatment usually lasts about 15 minutes.
Unlike aesthetic surgery, there is no downtime and you can return to work or home after the treatment. It is best to avoid exercise or any strenuous activity for several days following the treatment. It is important not to rub the treatment areas because that can cause the Botox to migrate to places where it is not needed.
