Livanta Medical Center's Botox injection therapy offer individuals with wrinkles smoother skin and a natural well-rested appearance. As the years go by, facial muscles beneath the skin contract with every facial expression and eventually form "dynamic" wrinkles such as:
These “dynamic” wrinkles deepen with age and often create a terse, stressed appearance. Botox injections relax select muscles in the face and limit their ability to contract.
At Livanta Medical Center we have discovered Botox is a good substitute to pain medication for:
Botox treatments are very simple to perform and usually take less than five minutes per facial area. Using a tiny micro-needle, a minuscule amount of an FDA-approved serum containing botulinum toxin type A, is injected very precisely into select facial muscles.
Because the needle used for the Botox injection is very thin, no sedation or local anesthetic is necessary. Comfort is enhanced by applying a topical anesthetic or an ice pack a few minutes before the Botox injection.
Botox injections are administered by our board-certified Medical Physician Assistant. Our Botox providers are considered expert injectors, trained in the most advanced injection techniques to achieve the most natural looking results.
Within one or two weeks of the Botox injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Although results vary, most individuals can expect significant wrinkle reduction for about four months following a Botox injection. To maintain the desired wrinkle reduction effects, Botox injection treatments can and should be repeated about every four or five months. The result tends to be longer lasting with subsequent treatments.
