Botox Clinic In Irvine
Are you familiar with Botox injections?
Most people first learned of this anti-aging treatment from Hollywood celebrities who look impossibly young. Recent years have seen the treatment make its way to the general public.
If you are considering undergoing this procedure at a Botox clinic in Irvine, you may have some questions that you would like answered first.
What is Botox?
Is Botox Safe?
Botox is manufactured under the strictest of controlled conditions within a professional laboratory. Both the manufacturer and product have an excellent safety profile spanning several decades. Once injected, the product does not migrate to other parts of the body and have undesirable systemic effects. It stays where it is injected to minimize wrinkles caused by underlying facial muscle contractions.
Botox and Fillers
Other than the fact that both treatments involve injections, Botox is nothing like fillers. While fillers work by “filling in” lines and wrinkles by increasing facial skin volume, Botox works by temporarily paralyzing treated facial muscles.
What to Expect
You won’t be numb in the treated area after the injections. You will have full sensation at the site of the injections. The only thing that the treatment does is minimize the activity of treated facial muscles so that they cannot form wrinkles.
Patients typically begin noticing results within a few days of their treatment at their Botox clinic in Irvine. At about the three month mark, you may notice some gradual return of facial muscle movement. At this time, patients typically undergo another treatment to maintain their results.
How can I make sure that my treatment lasts as long as possible?
Now that you have undergone a treatment and seen how effective it is, you will want to maintain your results as long as possible. For a minimum of one week after your treatment, avoid the application of abrasive cleaners, toners, scrubs, or masks.
You may also want to undergo regular Botox treatments because the treatment lasts longer when your muscles are treated at regular intervals. At the same time, you should not have treatments too frequently because your facial muscles can grow resistant to the treatment. Wait at least three months between treatments.
