Would you like a more youthful appearance by eliminating persistent frown lines, grooves, or wrinkles? Or an effective way to treat migraines, incontinence, sweating or other medical issues?
What is Botox® ?
Botox® is a revolutionary product that effectively eliminates deep grooves, furrows and wrinkles to restore a soft, natural and youthful appearance. The treatment also reduces excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), muscle spasms, incontinence, and can help to control migraine and tension headaches.
Centric Health is proud to offer Botox® injections through our cosmetic surgeons. Our renowned team of board-certified cosmetic surgeons have the experience to customize your treatments, minimize side effects, and provide natural, long-lasting results.
How does Botox® work?
Botox® is a purified protein that relaxes facial muscles, softens wrinkles and expression lines, plumps up creases, and even adds fullness to lips and cheeks. Botox is consistently one of the most popular non-surgical procedures available today. Botox® works by safely blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, causing them to relax and soften. The surrounding areas are not affected by the treatment.
What can I expect during Botox® treatment?
Often called a “lunchtime procedure,” Botox® treatment is a fast, non-surgical procedure with no downtime. You can immediately return to work or daily activities, though you may experience minor bruising and a slight headache after the procedure. During treatment, small amounts of Botox® are precisely injected into the target muscles along expression lines on the forehead and the bridge of the nose, around the eyes, or on the neck. This causes the muscles to relax, reducing wrinkles and softening your appearance within a matter of days. The entire process is quick and simple, and discomfort is limited to the few seconds required for each injection.
The positive effects of Botox® begin to show within a week of treatment and typically last about three to four months. Even after the original effects of Botox® have subsided, the remaining lines will not regain their original depth or severity.
