If you are dissatisfied with facial wrinkles or other signs of aging, but aren’t quite ready for plastic surgery, opting for Botox in Scottsdale can be the best choice to transform the look of your face. Botox has been proven to provide relief from wrinkles, crow’s feet, forehead creases and thick bands in the neck.
At Scottsdale Plastics we take great pride in providing our patients options other than going under the knife, like Botox, to help them achieve a more youthful appearance.
What is BOTOX?
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
BOTOX is also used to help excessive sweating of the hands and armpit areas. Studies indicate it may also be helpful with migraines, neck spasms, and masseter muscle hypertrophy.
While this procedure is designed to reverse the effects of aging skin, there is no set age at which someone may find the benefits of Botox necessary. As everyone’s skin is different, wrinkles and other signs of aging may appear as early as your 20’s. Therefore we treat patients in their early 20s, just like we treat patients in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond. In fact, we see patients of all ages. Botox is designed to help eliminate the signs of aging and help our patients look and feel their best no matter their age.
When you opt for Botox in Scottsdale, our dedicated staff will determine your targeted problem areas as well as where the injections should be placed for maximum effect. Once that is determined, Dr. Bonillas will inject the Botox solution underneath the skin. This solution causes the muscles to contract, filling out your skin to eliminate the look of wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Following the consultation, the actual procedure takes less than 30 minutes allowing you to get back to your daily routine with little to no downtime. While you may experience some minor discomfort, with the use of cold compresses, the procedure is very well-tolerated.
Results are normally seen within a few days but full results were seen at two weeks. The effects last between 3-6 months on average but everyone is different.
When the wrinkle lines return, you can schedule a follow-up visit with Dr. Bonillas.
