Developing frown lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles are inevitable as we grow older. We all age at a different rate, so some might see these signs even early on. You might appear sad, tired, or worried due to these wrinkles, even when you aren’t. The good news is that restoring a more youthful appearance and reducing these wrinkles is simple. We’re ready to enhance your skin with Botox treatments here at Wichita Vision Institute in Wichita, KS.
Who Is This Treatment For?
Choosing which injectable is right for you can feel overwhelming with so many options to choose from. Our team is here to guide you towards the right decision. During your initial consultation, you’ll meet with one of our experts. They’ll discuss your anti-aging preferences and desires during this meeting. You’ll also learn more details about the range of treatment options available to you. Once we learn what your goals are, we’ll be able to suggest the best treatment for you. There may even be a combination of injectable products and other treatments that we’ll recommend depending on what you’re looking for.
When Should I Start Treatment?
Some people claim you shouldn’t receive this treatment before your forties. These claims say that patients in their twenties won’t see a noticeable improvement from injections. This couldn’t be further from the truth. People who develop signs of aging early on may be ideal candidates for Botox.
Everyone’s skin is unique, and we all experience aging at a different rate. Some of us may see noticeable wrinkles and lines developing when we’re still in our twenties. There’s practically no age that’s too young to receive treatment if you’re concerned about imperfections in your skin. Being proactive and receiving treatment early may stop wrinkles and lines from deepening later on. Any age group can benefit from the youth-restoring results of this treatment.
Is This Treatment Only for Women?
Looking younger is important to everyone in our fast-paced, modern world. Men are increasingly concerned with their aging appearances and are turning to products like this to restore a more youthful look. This simple, straightforward, and minimally invasive procedure is an easy option for men looking to reduce their wrinkles.
How Effective Is Treatment?
While other treatments deliver unsatisfactory or disappointing results, that’s not a concern with this injectable. This scientifically proven method has a track record for being beneficial and effective. Improving wrinkles in a meaningful way is what this solution has been shown to do in clinical studies.
For example, noticeable improvements in forehead lines after thirty days were noted by two separate clinical studies. Another survey showed that people who received this treatment reported natural-looking, reliable results.
How Many Does Will I Need?
Every patient’s needs are different, so your treatment will be personalized to meet your unique goals and circumstances. There are a number of factors that determine how much of the solution our professional will inject, including the severity of your wrinkles and what results you wish to achieve. We’ll analyze these wrinkles and discuss your aspirations during your first consultation. That will let us develop a customized plan specifically for your needs.
What Are the Benefits of Botox?
Anyone who shows aging signs like crow’s feet, frown lines, or other wrinkles can most likely benefit from these treatments. You can temporarily reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your skin with this FDA-approved injectable. Wrinkles caused by repeated movements of your facial muscles can be treated effectively using this solution.
What Causes Wrinkles?
We make many facial expressions through our day-to-day life, like frowning, squinting, or smiling. All of these motions cause muscles in your face to contract, which in turn makes your skin fold and crease. For example, squinting or smiling causes the skin around your eyes to crinkle. Usually, these expressions only temporarily alter your skin, as our skin is able to return to a resting state. Repeatedly making these expressions, however, will cause your skin to develop lines and wrinkles over time.
Anti-aging treatments can help smooth these wrinkles to give you a younger appearance. This injectable is effective at treating wrinkles and lines around your eyes and crow’s feet. You’ll also notice a reduction in furrows in your forehead and creases between your brow if you use this solution. Once you see the full benefits of what this anti-aging solution can do for you, you are sure to be impressed by the results.
Conflicting Medical Conditions
This minimally invasive treatment is easy and gentle, but certain preexisting conditions may disqualify you from treatment. If you’ve experienced allergic reactions from other botulinum products like Dysport or Xeomin, you should also avoid Botox. If you have an infection in any target area you wish to treat, do not use this treatment. Tell our team about any health issues you have during your initial consultation, including conditions that affect your nerves or muscles. We’ll decide whether this treatment is right for you based on this information.
How Does It Work?
Botulinum is the active ingredient in this treatment. Botulinum is a type of neurotoxin, which improves your appearance by changing the interaction between your facial muscles and your nerves. The nerves in the target area will stop sending signals to your muscles following treatment. This causes the muscles that form wrinkles to relax. Wrinkles and lines will smooth out as these muscles ease up.
This process may also prevent future wrinkles from developing by keeping your muscles relaxed. This treatment also increases in efficiency with repeated use, possibly extending the time you can go between your appointments.
What to Expect During Treatment
One advantage of this solution is how minimally invasive it is. Most patients will not need general anesthesia to receive this injection. Our office instead offers a convenient outpatient appointment that will most likely be over in less than twenty minutes. You could even get your treatment done during your lunch break from work.
The first step is cleansing the treatment area to ensure nothing interferes with injecting the solution. We may also put a few temporary marks down for reference at this point. That will help us apply your injections with the utmost accuracy to get results in the areas you want to see improvement in. Next, we use a very fine needle to administer the injection to the target area. Most patients end up being surprised by how quick, comfortable, and straightforward the treatment process is.
You’ll be able to get on with your day-to-day life immediately after receiving treatment. Generally speaking, this injection is very gentle to your body. Work, hobbies, and other activities won’t be hampered in the post-treatment process. You should apply a cold compress to your treatment area following your appointment.
How Fast Will I See Results?
This fast-acting product provides quick results, but you won’t notice them immediately. Instead, your skin will gradually smooth out as the solution causes your muscles to relax. Everyone responds differently to treatment, but most people will see the full effects about ten days after the injection. You’ll notice your face looking refreshed and smooth with less noticeable wrinkles at this point.
How Long Do Results Stay?
While it provides impressive results, this treatment will not permanently remove wrinkles. Typically, you can expect to see results for three to four months after treatment. If you receive regular follow-up treatments, you may be able to see longer-lasting results. Follow-up injections can also prevent deeper wrinkles and lines from developing later on.
Will My Face Look Natural After Treatment?
You may be worried about your face looking unnatural or frozen after treatment if you’ve never used dermal fillers before. Or perhaps you’ve used other injectable treatments that didn’t give you the results you wanted. Luckily, you won’t have to worry about those problems when you work with our team of experts.
Our team is very skilled at applying this treatment. Our board-certified dermatologists and physician assistants have been widely acclaimed for their experience in facial anatomy. That knowledge helps us administer your treatment precisely to get the results you desire. Rather than a frozen or unnatural-looking face, you’ll appear sophisticated and energized. You’ll be back to a more rested, youthful, and attractive-looking self.
Can I Save Money By Using a Generic Solution?
When looking for anti-aging solutions, you may come across generic treatments that claim to give you wrinkle-treating results. Often these alternative treatments are offered at very low prices. The inexpensive price tag may be tempting, but these off-brand treatments aren’t worth the risk. There is no generic version of Botox, so you can’t be sure the substitute you’re being treated with is safe or efficient.
The unique process used to make this injectable ensures that is safe and reliable.
