One of the biggest concerns people have about how they look are the wrinkles that the years have brought their face. If you have concerns about looking older and want a solution for wrinkles, Botox may be the solution for you.
Botox is a nuero-muscular blocker used to treat wrinkles and lines in the facial area, among other uses such as excessive underarm sweating, migraine treatment and muscle spasms.

What causes wrinkles?
Over time, the contraction of facial muscles due to expressions and movement cause wrinkles and lines to form. These wrinkles and lines can make you look tired, aged and worn, even when you’re not.
Botox is a fantastic solution to smooth out lines and wrinkles while also working as preventative care against wrinkles. Botox tightens the skin and even helps fill out skin that has become crepey.
What to expect during and after your Botox treatment
A Botox treatment is quite fast, taking only about a half hour. Many patients even see Dr. Andrew for their treatment on their lunch break because there is really no down time.
Botox involves simple, virtually pain-free injections into the area of concern. Most often, people wish to have Botox in between the eyebrows, in the forehead lines and the lines around the eyes (crow’s feet). Typically, a topical anesthetic is not necessary, and your results will fully develop within seven to 14 days.
Botox treatments last up to three months and are a cost-effective alternative to more invasive and expensive cosmetic treatments. They are safe and effective.
Prior to your Botox treatment, you should avoid alcohol, as this may increase risk of bruising. Further, you should stop any over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs such as Motrin or Ibuprofen. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not receive Botox treatments.
You should not lay flat in a resting position for four hours after your Botox treatment and the treated area should not be touched for four hours.
