Restore Your Youthful Appearance with BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a fast, effective, and virtually painless procedure that can dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Age, stress, worry, and environmental factors all contribute to lines and wrinkles, making us appear older than we actually are. At Prestige Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio, TX, Dr. Bernard Kopchinski offers BOTOX Cosmetic injections to help you achieve a more youthful and vivacious appearance.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic is derived from a naturally occurring substance called botulinum toxin. Essentially, BOTOX Cosmetic blocks nerve signals to certain muscles, making it temporarily impossible for them to contract. By immobilizing underlying facial muscles, BOTOX can diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles on your face and smooth your skin.
Candidates for BOTOX Cosmetic Injections
BOTOX Cosmetic has been proven safe for a wide range of candidates. It is FDA approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles in several locations:
- Chin and jawline
- Between the eyebrows
- Around the eyes
- At the corners of the mouth
Certain types of blemishes tend to be resistant to BOTOX Cosmetic, including deeper wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity. You must be in good health and at least 18 years old to receive BOTOX Cosmetic. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological condition should not use BOTOX. You can discuss your medical history and cosmetic goals with Dr. Kopchinski during a consultation to determine whether BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you.
A BOTOX Cosmetic treatment usually only takes about 10 minutes. A member of our team will first instruct you to contract your facial muscles to determine the optimal placement of the injections. We will then use a very small needle to precisely inject BOTOX Cosmetic into the muscles. Typically, BOTOX Cosmetic treatments produce such a minimal amount of discomfort that no anesthetic is required.
If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate your appearance, BOTOX Cosmetic injections at Prestige Cosmetic Surgery can restore your skin to a smooth and youthful state.
For most patients, results of BOTOX Cosmetic injections last between three and four months. Results may not last as long for individuals receiving BOTOX Cosmetic for the first time. However, the more often you undergo a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, the longer your results will last as your muscles become accustomed to the treatment. We may recommend a skin care routine to enhance your results, such as the iS Clinical Skin Care system.
BOTOX Cosmetic Aftercare
Most patients require no recovery time after a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic. You should be able to return to your normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, we recommend you avoid rubbing the treated areas and refrain from bending over for long periods of time for the first few days to achieve ideal results.
Some patients experience temporary bruising or redness around at the injections sites. Icing the areas or applying cold compresses can help minimize these effects.
