How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neuromodulator injection, meaning it blocks signals between facial muscles to limit their movements, specifically contractions. Once the muscles have become temporarily relaxed, the skin above smoothens to reduce the visibility of wrinkles. During this time, the muscles can still move but to a lesser extent than before the treatment.
The injection’s effects typically last between three and six months, with additional sessions maintaining enhancements. Minor side effects after a Botox treatment are possible and include headaches, numbness, and temporary weakness in nearby muscles. Additionally, patients may have minor bruising, redness, pain, and swelling around injection sites that subsides quickly.
Benefits Of Botox Injections
The primary use of Botox injections is to treat wrinkles on the face that have developed from repetitive muscle movements. This treatment could be used to target many problem areas, including:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Wrinkles around the mouth
Botox injections can also be used to treat medical conditions with side effects that disrupt body and muscle functions. Those who suffer from any of the following could find relief through Botox injections:
- Chronic migraines
- Excessive eye twitching
- Excessive underarm sweating
Dr. Kreitzberg, an experienced plastic surgeon in Tulsa, could help you understand if Botox would be an effective treatment for you, given your individual concerns and problem areas.
Are You A Good Candidate For Botox?
Our qualified surgeon could determine if Botox is right for you during a consultation. Those with significantly visible wrinkles on or around the forehead, eyes, and mouth that worsen during muscle movements are often good candidates for Botox injections. If you are looking to restore tissue volume or eliminate other aging signs, one of the other cosmetic treatments we offer may be a better choice.
Younger patients in their late twenties and early thirties may choose Botox injections to prevent the formation of wrinkles. These injections could be an effective option for patients of all ages considering wrinkle reduction. Effects are temporary, but follow-up treatments are a safe way to maintain enhancements long-term.
