Allure Aesthetic Center’s licensed and experienced cosmetic injectors expertly inject small amounts of Botox® Cosmetic into areas of a patient’s face to help relax the muscles that cause wrinkling between the eyes, crows feet, and forehead. A short 30-minute Botox® appointment can successfully help treat patients of unwanted facial wrinkles for up to four months. This includes a complimentary consultation that ensures every one of our clients feel comfortable and educated before any procedure is done with sufficient time to ask any questions you may have. Our professional staff includes our Physician’s Assistant, Anthony Ferarra, who has performed injectables since 2010 along with our Nurse Practitioner, Lucy Brazier, who has performed cosmetic injectables since 2014.
Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable composed of a purified form of botulinum that works to cease the contraction of isolated facial muscles that produce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The discomfort associated with this cosmetic skin treatment is minimal, and may be combined with other cosmetic treatments such as microdermabrasion to enhance facial rejuvenation results.
Botox® has other medical advantages in addition to smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyperhydrosis, TMJ pain, as well as migraine symptoms have all been treated with Botox® Cosmetic. With only a few localized injections, common symptoms of jaw pain, intense headaches, and profuse sweating can all be greatly reduced.
Botox Cosmetics is the most popular aesthetic treatment for reduction of wrinkles. It was broadly studied and approved in 78 countries. Botox Cosmetics (botulinum toxin type A) is a purified protein that is derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is an injection that used to temporary relax facial muscles improving appearance of “crow’s feet” lines (lines around the eyes), “elevens” (frown lines between the eyebrows) and lines on the forehead.
Botox treatment procedure usually takes 10-15 minutes. After the procedure patient may experience minor pain or bruising and swelling at the injection area but it quickly resolves. Results are seen in 10-14 days and typically last 3 to 4 months. Botox can also be used to treat chronic migraines, hyperhidrosis (severe underarm sweating) and TMJ.
