Unfortunately, the effects of aging are difficult to avoid. Wrinkles are a tell-tale sign that you are getting older. However, you do not have to resign yourself to looking at these wrinkles day in and day out. At Veritas Medical Center, our board-certified doctor can treat your wrinkles with Botox®. Our clinic in Orange County, CA has the Botox® services available. This treatment is one of the most effective and common ways to reduce your wrinkle lines and restore your youthful appearance. It is FDA approved and very safe.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
For over 17 years, Botox® has been available to treat a variety of conditions. It is an injectable medication that is available by prescription only. You cannot pick this up at your local pharmacy. In the last decade or so Botox® has been used to treat facial lines and wrinkles in patients. This is a cosmetic treatment that has been approved by the FDA to treat common signs of aging such as crow’s feet and frown lines. Doctors have also found it to be useful in treating axillary hyperhidrosis and help those who have excessive underarm sweating.
How exactly does Botox® Cosmetic work when I visit Veritas Medical Center?
One of the ways wrinkles form is when your muscles do not relax. After decades of smiling and laughing, muscles will continue to contract even when you aren’t smiling or laughing. Botox® relaxes and releases those muscles, causing those wrinkles to fade. When they relax, your youthful appearance is restored! When you visit Veritas Medical Center, you will meet one on one with our doctors to see if this treatment is right for you. We’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and medical history. If we determine that you can benefit from this treatment, we will then move forward with scheduling an appointment! At your treatment appointment, our highly experienced providers will inject a small amount of Botox® into the treatment area. Most patients don’t feel a thing and those who do only report a minor discomfort. All in all, the treatment will take a few minutes to administer. Most patients report results in three to seven days, although it can take up to two weeks to see a difference.
What is the treatment like at your facility?
Botox® only consists of a few small injections. You’ll be in and out quickly! Our providers will determine where the injections will be and you can rely on our years of experience to pick areas that will maximize its effectiveness. You do not need anesthesia for this procedure, although you may request some numbing cream in the area of the treatment. Please note that Botox® does not “numb” an area, it just relaxes the muscles. You may experience some temporary side effects including swelling, tenderness, or redness. These symptoms should subside after a few days. For best results, we suggest visiting Veritas Medical Center for follow up treatments two to three times a year.
What areas can benefit from Botox®?
Our experts have had great success in treating the forehead, neck, chin, nose, eyes, and mouth. We also can apply treatments under your arms to help prevent excessive sweating.
How long does a Botox® treatment last?
While everyone’s body is different, we generally see results last four to six months. Many times, when wrinkles return, they are less pronounced then they were before. To achieve lasting results, we suggest visiting Veritas Medical Center every four to six months for additional treatments.
Are there any side effects?
Patients may experience tenderness, inflammation, redness, irritation, and minor bruising at the site of a Botox® treatment. These symptoms clear up after a few days. More severe side effects are possible, so please be as detailed as possible when talking to our doctors about your medical history. Our one on one consultations are important for your safety!
