Fine lines and wrinkles make you highly self-conscious. These imperfections may make you look older than you really are or feel. However, Kingwood Urgent Care Clinic, serving Kingwood, TX and the surrounding area, offers a solution known as Botox to boost your confidence.
General Information About Botox
Botox is an injectable treatment for fine lines and wrinkles that consists of the onabotulinumtoxin A. It classifies as a substance that affects the nervous system by targeting the nerves in that region to stop muscle contractions. Basically, it hinders the muscles where we inject it at from being able to move freely. The results are temporary but can drastically reduce the occurrence of fine lines and wrinkles to make you look younger. It’s an ideal solution for people who don’t want to undergo cosmetic surgery to alter their appearance.
What to Expect from a Botox Procedure
You’ll come into our office for your treatment. We’ll inquire about your expectations and determine the appropriate course of action for you. Most patients require more than one injection. During the injection, you may feel a bit of pain, but it’s minimal. You might feel varying levels of pain, depending on the location(s) you’re receiving Botox. If you’re nervous about pain from the injections, we can apply a numbing agent prior to your treatment.
Results of Botox
Some people do report noticeable results immediately after their treatment. However, this isn’t true for most people. A majority of people notice a difference between seven to 14 days after their treatment. The effects of the Botox usually last at least four months but possibly up to six.
Side Effects of Botox
We have a practitioner who has undergone training to correctly administer your treatment, which reduces the possibility of side effects significantly. Although it’s not common, you could experience side effects like the following:
- Swelling, bruising, or pain at the injection site
- Rash or itchiness
- Drooping eyelid
- Flu-like symptoms
- Eye dryness
- Excessive tearing
While it’s rare, the toxin could spread throughout your body within hours or weeks of your injections. In this case, you could have:
- Vision problems
- Breathing problems
- Trouble speaking
- Difficulty swallowing
Benefits of Choosing Botox
One of the main benefits of Botox is that it provides significant results. You don’t have to undergo anesthesia, nor will you experience any scarring. You don’t have any recovery time. In fact, you can resume your normal activities within hours of your injections. Since Botox doesn’t permanently alter your face, you can try it once to see if you like the results. If you’re not happy with the outcome, you don’t have to use them again once your face returns to normal.
Qualifying for Botox
If you’re relatively healthy, you more than likely qualify for Botox. You just can’t have any serious illnesses. For instance, we won’t perform it on people who have a neuromuscular disease like multiple sclerosis or myasthenia gravi. Additionally, we don’t recommend this treatment for patients who have ptosis, weakness in facial muscles, deep facial scarring, or those with certain skin disorders. You may not qualify for the treatment if you have an infection at the time of the procedure. We also won’t conduct this procedure on pregnant or nursing women.
