Botox is a cosmetic injectable that minimizes wrinkles and fine lines. It can also be used to treat certain health problems, including migraine headaches and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Botox is made from botulinum toxin. When injected into your face, it causes specific muscles to relax, making your skin look younger and smoother.
The Stone Creek Family Medicine uses Botox to treat various cosmetic problems, including:
Sometimes, the team uses Botox to manage other medical conditions, including muscle spasms, migraines, and bladder issues.
Your Stone Creek Family Medicine provider reviews your medical records and asks about your treatment goals. Make sure to let them know about any medicines, vitamins, and supplements you take. Certain drugs increase the risk of bruising at the injection site, so it’s important the team’s aware.
Alcohol also increases your risk of bruising and redness. Don’t drink for at least 24 hours before the procedure.
Botox is an outpatient procedure that takes 30-45 minutes.
Your Stone Creek Family Medicine provider washes your face and applies a topical anesthetic to your skin. Then, they administer a series of Botox injections into specific muscles on your forehead, cheeks, neck, or jawline. The number of injections you get depends on your treatment goals.
After getting Botox, it’s normal to have redness, mild bruising, and increased sensitivity at the injection sites. Don’t rub or apply pressure to the treatment site (or sites) for at least 12 hours. Avoid strenuous exercise for at least a day and follow your provider’s recovery instructions.
The effects of Botox last three to four months, on average.* When you notice wrinkles and fine lines recurring, schedule a maintenance appointment at Stone Creek Family Medicine. After a series of Botox treatments, your muscles might train themselves to contract less. When that happens, the team can space your visits out over longer periods of time.
