The growing demand for less invasive ways to reduce wrinkles, has made Botox one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments at Bandak Plastic Surgery. Botox has virtually become a household word and many women (and men), now include it in their beauty regimen.
How Botox works
Botox is a safe, FDA approved treatment that softens dynamic wrinkles, to create a more youthful appearance. Dynamic wrinkles are formed because of repeated facial expressions such as frowning, squinting, and smiling.
As we age, the skin does not bounce back as easily from these muscle movements as it once did, and so wrinkles set in. Dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet (at the outer corner of the eyes), and wrinkles across the forehead and between the eyes.
A very fine needle is used to inject a small amount of botox into the muscles responsible for creating dynamic wrinkles. This causes the muscles to relax, and the lines and wrinkles eventually soften, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
What to expect
Millions of men and women across the world have undergone botox injections, and most of them experience no adverse side effects. The treatment is quick, as it takes 15 minutes, and patients experience only minor discomfort. There will be slight swelling and redness at the injection site, but this resolves within a few hours.
The results of botox can be seen about 5 to 7 days after the injections, and typically last 4-6 months.
In order to get the most natural looking results, botox must be injected in the right location by a trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon, who is experienced in using the product. At Bandak, you can be assured that injections will be done expertly by Dr. Abdalla Bandak.
