BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections – Birmingham

Getting the looks you have always wanted does not always necessitate cosmetic plastic surgery. There are many non-surgical aesthetic enhancements available that can help you look your best. By undergoing BOTOX® injections at our Birmingham area practice, your wrinkles and lines on your face will fade away–no need for surgery, and no need for extended recovery after your treatment is done. Let’s look at how BOTOX® injections work and what to expect from treatment.

About BOTOX® Injections

BOTOX® is a cosmetic injection that is derived from botulinum toxin type A. The end solution is extremely diluted, safe for use on humans, and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. BOTOX® injections work differently from dermal fillers. Rather than enhance the volume in the injection site, BOTOX® injections will stop muscle contractions in the treatment area. This will reduce the formation and appearance of wrinkles and lines in those areas.

Candidates for BOTOX® Injections

The best candidates for BOTOX® injections are people who are in good general health who would like to do something about crow’s feet, furrowed brows, and other lines and facial wrinkles that make people look prematurely old. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should NOT undergo BOTOX® treatment as it can potentially affect a baby or nursing child. During your visit to our practice serving Birmingham, we will see if BOTOX® cosmetic injections are the right option for you.

Risks and Benefits of BOTOX® Injections

The risks of BOTOX® injections tend to be very few and side effects minor. Some of the common side effects that people experience after BOTOX® treatment include bruising, drooping facial features, headaches, nausea, numbness of the treatment area, allergic reactions to the BOTOX®, and flu-like symptoms. These are all temporary conditions and will usually abate within a day or two after treatment.

The benefits of BOTOX® injections include improved appearance, effective non-surgical anti-aging wrinkle reduction, and better self-confidence. BOTOX® also has benefits beyond mere cosmetic treatment, and has been used in some therapies to help treat excessive sweating, jaw tension and pain, and migraine headaches.

Results of BOTOX® Treatment

The full results of BOTOX® injection treatment should be seen in about a week. At this point as your muscles in the injection are relaxed and the wrinkles and lines in those areas fade. The results of the BOTOX® injection at our practice serving Vestavia Hills will last for approximately four to six months, at which time you can undergo another BOTOX® treatment for wrinkle reduction.
