BOTOX Injections in Austin
Lines and deep wrinkles in the face are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles when you smile, laugh or frown. BOTOX®, a purified protein derivative, can effectively freeze, prevent, and reverse many of the lines between your eyebrows, across your forehead, and around your eyes.
How BOTOX Works
By blocking impulses from the nerves to the tiny facial muscles related to expression, BOTOX keeps the muscles relaxed, preventing contraction. Approved by the FDA, BOTOX is a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles and frown lines and has also been used for a variety of medical conditions including ophthalmological and neurological disorders. BOTOX can also help reduce chin dimples, necklines, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the hands and armpits.
Each BOTOX session consists of several tiny injections into the targeted muscle. These injections last three to six months and are a popular non-surgical treatment proven to reduce the signs of aging. As skilled skincare experts, the Board-Certified Dermatologists and licensed Providers at Vitalogy Medical Spas ensure a safe and effective treatment resulting in a more youthful appearance.
Depending on your age, you may be able to use BOTOX in different ways or places to help. Learn about BOTOX in your 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s here.
BOTOX for Men
A common misconception is that only women use BOTOX, but it’s growing as a go-to treatment for many men as well now. Learn more about BOTOX for men (or BROTOX) here.
BOTOX for Migraines
BOTOX is often sought out to mitigate chronic migraines. The same nerve blockers preventing muscle contractions also are believed to block chronic migraines.
A study referenced on the BOTOX website found that BOTOX prevents an average of eight to nine headache days in those who suffer from chronic migraines, versus the placebo preventing only an average of six to seven headache days. Injections were administered just once every 12 weeks, and the most common side effect is neck pain.
If you’re interested in using BOTOX to help with migraines, you’ll need to see a Neurologist for treatments.
What to Expect When You Get BOTOX
BOTOX is a fast and simple procedure that is only minimally invasive. BOTOX injections are administered with an ultra-fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort from the injections is brief and minimal.
