Your provider uses Botox to:
Your Aloe Dermatology provider may suggest using dermal fillers in addition to Botox to add plumpness to areas of your face that are wrinkled or lack volume. Fillers add volume to your lips and enhance facial contours.
Your Aloe Dermatology specialist lets you know if you need Botox after discussing your symptoms and medical history. They review your aesthetic goals and examine your skin to determine which cosmetic injectables are best for your needs. They also let you know what to expect before, during, and after each treatment.
During Botox injections, your Aloe Dermatology provider numbs the treatment area if needed and gently injects Botox into targeted areas while you relax. They often inject Botox into the affected skin multiple times during each treatment, along with dermal fillers if such injections are part of your treatment plan.
Each treatment is simple, fast, and painless, taking just 10 minutes in many cases. There’s no anesthesia, surgery, or downtime needed, and you’ll notice the results within 3-10 days.
After the injections are complete, you can ice the area to reduce swelling. Additional side effects may include tenderness and redness. Avoid laying down for several hours following Botox treatment or undergoing laser treatment until given the okay.
The results of Botox injections usually last about 3-4 months, but they sometimes last up to six months. After the effects wear off, you can schedule repeat Botox injections as needed to reap the benefits of long-lasting anti-aging outcomes.
