Botox® is a substance that is injected into the muscles of the face to block nerve signals to the muscles. This keeps facial muscles from contracting which softens the look of wrinkles*. Botox® works especially well for forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. It is not as successful in treating wrinkles caused by sun damage or the natural draw of gravity. While the effects are typically not seen for three to seven days after injection, it is called the “lunch hour wrinkle remover” because the procedure itself is quick and virtually painless, allowing you to return to normal activity almost immediately.
Dr. Kulback understands you might be concerned that you’ll look unnatural or like you’ve had “work done” after receiving a Botox treatment (“frozen face,” “surprised look,” “weird eyebrows,” “droopy eyelids,” etc.). We take a conservative approach and slowly work to help you reach the results you desire. We see all patients back after 2 weeks to assess the results and make any needed adjustments. This helps prevent overtreatment and tailors the dose to each individual’s needs.
Lines and wrinkles in the :
Botox effectively reduces lines and wrinkles in the face and neck. Shallow lines and wrinkles typically dissipate after one to two treatments; however, deeper lines and wrinkles may require successive treatments to significantly reduce their appearance. The great news is that results will improve with each additional treatment, so it is important to continue the injection schedule routine. Botox results typically last three to four months and can last longer with continued treatment. It is time for another treatment when the lines first reappear.
YOUNGER PATIENTS (GENERALLY 18-30 YEARS OLD) Early treatment will prevent line formation and deep wrinkles from forming and require lower doses.
MIDDLE-AGED PATIENTS (GENERALLY 30-55 YEARS OLD)Men and women in this category typically see the formation of lines and wrinkles, and Botox is an effective treatment restoring a more youthful look.
OLDER PATIENTS (GENERALLY 55-95 YEARS OLD)
You are never too old to begin using Botox to reduce the visible signs of aging. This generally requires several treatments but can definitely soften the signs of aging and give very rewarding results.
Botox can make either a small or significant change depending on your unique goals and facial anatomy and how much treatment you desire.
