Is it time to consider the most popular nonsurgical procedure in America? Different types of botulinum toxin have a number of FDA-approved uses, including lazy eye, excessive sweating, migraines, and overactive bladder. Treatment only takes a matter of minutes, and the injections can target your forehead, lip lines, crow's feet, jowls, or other specific areas of concern. At Nisha Skin Spa, we use Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, which are different kinds of botulinum toxin.
How Does It Work?
Botulinum toxin is a protein released by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. By blocking a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, Botox temporarily weakens the muscles that cause fine lines and creases in the skin. Because the facial muscles gradually develop new receptor sites, the results last somewhere between three and six months. The treatments cannot get rid of permanent creases or wrinkles due to a significant loss of skin elasticity.
Is Botox Right for You?
Not only do wrinkles make a person look older than they are, but they can also make you look angry, tired, or sad. The effects of treatment can, therefore, make you look more refreshed, happy, and approachable. Botox can often be used to correct asymmetry in the brows or face, or to relax tightness in neckbands.
It is important to find a qualified professional like our team at Nisha Skin Spa because we can explain the benefits for your specific situation, and we can also avoid some of the risks associated with injections. Poorly applied injections of Botox can cause a droopy appearance in an eye or particular muscle. Injections in sensitive areas can also cause bruising, so it's important to understand the risks.
