Neurotoxins can be natural or synthetic substances that produce temporary muscle relaxation. When injected, they reduce your lines and wrinkles in many ways depending on the type of neurotoxin and how it works. All of the neurotoxin types used at Harris Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics are also FDA approved.
Botox works by temporarily preventing your muscle from moving in the injected area through the use of a toxin called OnabotulinumtoxinA. It’s also used in many medical conditions, such as migraines, excessive sweating, eye twitching, and many other cases. Botox is temporary and typically lasts three to four months depending on dose and where it is used.
It is derived from AbobotulinumtoxinA, a toxin similar to Botox and with an identical mechanism of action to reduce muscle movement. Dysport also lasts about 3-4 months depending on dose and where it is used.
By removing your wrinkles and lines, you’ll be able to have a natural look with a non-surgical procedure and almost no pain. There also won’t be any scars or post-procedure marks. In a short period of time, you’ll look and feel young, fresh, and confident. Furthermore, people experiencing migraines and even depression have been shown to have improvement after Botox injections.
You're typically a great candidate as long as you're healthy and don’t have any medical conditions that would preclude the use of Botox. You should also avoid treatment if you are pregnant or taking certain medications for muscle spasms.
Before your procedure, you should review your medical history with Dr. Harris. Your face should be clean and clear of any makeup. Once this is done, you’ll be injected in the appropriate areas using several injections. Depending on the amount used, the whole procedure typically takes no more than 20 minutes and our Beverly Hills Botox patients will be set to go without any recovery time.
After the procedure, you may feel a slight numbness. You may also feel a little discomfort in the treated areas. Any discomfort will normally go away within an hour or less and the results can vary depending on the type of toxin used. Your full results take about 5-10 days to show. Typically, the result lasts for 3-4 months and can be repeated as desired. Avoid rubbing your injection site so that the injection doesn’t spread and cause undesired side effects.
Botox injections are super safe and easy with almost immediate results. You will be able to return to your everyday life and routine with no recovery time needed and the results are worth it. Schedule your consultation with Harris Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics today!
