Botox is a quick and effective injectable treatment that targets the nerve activity in your facial muscles and the underlying causes of lines and wrinkles in the skin. If you want to restore your younger-looking self, try Botox in Rochester at Jacobson Plastic Surgery. Dr. Steven Jacobson takes extra steps to enhance your experience with comfort and ease while receiving your targeted treatment.
What Is Botox?
Botulinum toxin type A is a purified protein, which comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, has been used for decades both medically and cosmetically and has been proven to be highly effective and safe with multiple indications. Botox Injections work by acting as neuromuscular inhibitors, blocking signals from the brain to targeted muscles in the face responsible for wrinkle formation. Once the treatment is injected under the skin, it limits the chemical messenger known as acetylcholine from the nerve cells, which reduces the movement capability of an overactive muscle. This reduction can then prevent those muscles from causing folds in the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines around the face are mainly created by the over-articulation of these muscles.
What Can Botox Treat?
As a board-certified Plastic Surgeon and expertise in facial aesthetics, Dr. Steven Jacobson provides you an opportunity to discuss his advanced techniques offered to address additional areas of concern such as your eyes, cheeks, corners of the mouth, chin, and neck (soften platysmal bands in the neck). Botox is commonly used to treat:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Brow wrinkles
- Smile lines
- Lines around the nose
- Chin wrinkles
Want visible smoothing of unwanted wrinkles around your eye or forehead? With just a single treatment you will see a reduction of your crow’s feet lines and your frown lines between your brows.
How Does Botox Work?
Botulinum toxin type A is simply a temporary muscle relaxer effective at preventing wrinkle formation and correction of existing wrinkles. Every time we animate our facial muscles and our skin moves. Botox provides patients with effective wrinkle reduction and with strategic placement we can sculpt the face by preventing muscular contraction. Botox injections have been the number-one noninvasive aesthetic treatment in the United States and has been a common aesthetic treatment since the 1970’s.
As women and men advance in age, their eyes become hooded, their brow begins to lower, and the corners of their mouth become downturned. Dr. Steven Jacobson can inject a few units of Botox to relax the muscles and help reduce the effects of aging. Botox patients in Rochester achieve a look that is rejuvenated and more approachable. This natural aging process gets more pronounced with time as deeper and deeper lines become permanently etched into our skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
The ideal candidates for Botox are at least 18 years of age, are in good physical condition, and want to reduce wrinkles on their face. Candidates should have realistic expectations for the procedure’s outcome.
Botox is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. It is not ideal for people with neurological diseases. Those who have allergic reactions to cow’s milk protein should also not get Botox.
Your Botox Consultation
During the consultation, you will discuss your areas of concern, overall health, medical history, and history of sensitive skin and allergic reactions with Dr. Jacobson. He will also talk about your cosmetic goals and expectations of the procedure. This discussion will help him determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Botox injections.
The Treatment Session
The entire Botox treatment process may take 15 minutes or less. Local or topical anesthesia may be administered beforehand to numb the region. Dr. Jacobson will weaken the wrinkle-producing muscles with small amounts of Botox to preserve your natural expressions. The number of units of Botox injected will depend on the extent of your fine lines.
What to Expect After Your Botox Treatment
Since Botox injections are only minimally invasive, no downtime or recovery time is required. You may resume your daily activities right after the procedure.
After getting the injections, avoid massaging the treated areas to prevent the Botox injections from moving to another part of your face. Slight redness, bruising, or swelling may be present for a short time.
Following your Botox injections, you will start to notice the effect to start in 3-7 days with full onset at 2 weeks. The results typically last 3 months and best results for this treatment will be achieved by returning for injections about every three-four months. For some patients, it may be more appropriate to combine BOTOX with injectable dermal fillers to achieve full correction and to create the natural-looking and beautiful results you desire.
