Botox® is a medicine derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium that creates the botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin weakens muscles and blocks specific signals from your nerves to your muscles.
The experienced team at New Body Medical injects Botox into your muscles in small, diluted doses to temporarily paralyze your muscle activity. When injected into your face, Botox prevents your muscles from contracting, so your wrinkles and fine lines soften, relax, and diminish.
Botox is most commonly used to diminish wrinkles, such as frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead furrows. New Body Medical provides Botox to resolve myriad cosmetic concerns, including:
New Body Medical also uses Botox to treat excessive sweating and certain muscle conditions.
The team can help you determine if you’re a good candidate for Botox during your personal consultation.
Most adults are good candidates for Botox. If you’re a suitable candidate for Botox, you should avoid alcohol for a few days and aspirin for a few weeks prior to your treatment to decrease the chance of any possible bruising.
You may not be a good candidate for Botox if you have a neurological disease or if you’re breastfeeding or pregnant.
There’s no downtime after Botox and you can get right back to your activities after treatment. Most people don’t report any symptoms. You might experience a mild temporary headache or mild bruising that typically disappears within a day or two. Don’t rub or otherwise irritate the treated area for at least 12 hours after your treatment.
When your muscle function comes back over time, your wrinkles might also come back. To maintain your results and your firmer, smoother skin, you can have additional Botox treatments. Botox is highly effective and, when wrinkles do return, they’re never as prominent as they once were before your Botox treatments.
Botox yields impressive wrinkle-reducing results and younger-looking skin. Your Botox results should be visible within a day or two and the results can last for four months or longer.
