BOTOX® Injections in Oklahoma
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Patients who desire BOTOX® treatments may have noticed the effects of age, gravity, exposure to sunlight, and the stresses of life all taking their toll on a person’s face. Deep creases often develop around the nose, eyes, and mouth causing unsightly wrinkles which make the patient look older. Such factors may affect an individual’s confidence, leading them to seek their own BOTOX® Injections in Oklahoma.
BOTOX® can help such individuals restore youthful vibrance and energy to the face. The effects of time are virtually undone to restore an individual’s face and to remove some of the effects of time and aging. Oklahoma Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Justin Jones accomplishes such effects by injecting BOTOX® beneath wrinkles to smooth them out. BOTOX® effectively relaxes the facial muscles underneath the skin which causes the wrinkles. This not only helps to restore the physical appearance of the patient, but also restores self-confidence and respect to the patient.
When the date for your BOTOX® injections have arrived, the procedure should not take long unless you are having other procedures performed with the injection. Each injection has relatively little pain or discomfort, usually a stinging or burning sensation unless an anesthesia is used. It is important to remember that BOTOX® injections are no replacement for surgery procedures and can not achieve as dramatic of a result. BOTOX® injections are also usually temporary in nature, but the length of duration may differ between individuals.
Recovery is usually quick and post-recovery pains are minor. Usually a bit of swelling may occur and redness usually subsides within about a day or so. The degree of swelling will usually depend on the size of the treated area and other individual factors unique to each patient.
