Find out more about Botox in San Antonio and how quickly you’ll get a younger-looking you.
With all thoughts turned toward the New Year, you may be considering how you want to revamp your appearance. While you may have thought about a new haircut or dental veneers, maybe you’re ready to say goodbye to those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. If you want to get a more youthful appearance then find out how getting Botox in San Antonio could help.
Botox is an injectable made from botulinum toxin, a chemical that causes temporary muscle paralysis and prevents the muscles from contracting. By preventing this muscular movement it also prevents wrinkles from forming.
While Botox is best known for its cosmetic application it can also be used to treat a host of other problems including hyperhydriosis (excessive sweating), crossed eyes, bladder incontinence, muscle spasms and migraines. Botox has also been tested to see if it can relieve TMJ-related facial pain.
The treatment itself only takes 10 minutes and you can return to your daily activities afterwards. A series of Botox injections will be administered into certain parts of your face, depending on the look you want to achieve. No anesthesia is required and most patients only report feeling a slight pinch when the Botox is injected.
Some people will start to notice their results within the first three to four days; however, you will see the full effect of the treatment in about two weeks. If you are still looking for a smoother appearance after two weeks, talk to your San Antonio dermatologist about additional Botox treatments.
The best candidates for this treatment are those who are healthy and have not been diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder such as multiple sclerosis. Patients should not be pregnant or nursing and all candidates need to be over 18 years old. If you have weak muscles, facial scars or a skin disorder then talk to your San Antonio dermatologist about whether Botox is right for you.
