Curious about Botox in Frisco TX?

Botox Frisco TXSo maybe you’ve been eyeing those fine lines every time you look in the mirror, and you want to act soon, because you’ve heard that it’s possible to wait too long to get Botox. But maybe you still have questions about the procedure. No need to feel nervous or uninformed. Here are answers to some of the basic questions about Botox in Frisco TX:

WHAT IS BOTOX?

With 10.9 million vials sold, Botox is used cosmetically in 78 countries. Its formula consists of a “highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.” Botox works by targeting the muscle contractions that have created facial wrinkles. After Botox is injected into these muscles, their activity is slowed and lines begin to smooth.

IS IT FDA APPROVED?

In 2002, Botox was approved by the FDA for the treatment of lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet). There are no other FDA approved treatments for lateral canthal lines. Botox is also approved for the treatment of glabellar lines (eyebrow or “frown” lines). Both types of wrinkles can be treated simultaneously.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Although initial consultations and discussions are necessary, the injection process itself only lasts about 10 minutes. You can expect to get three injections on each side of the face for crow’s feet and five injections for crow’s feet. If you have moderate to severe lines, you may see improvement in as little as 1 to 2 days. So you really can look younger in a flash! Injection results last as long as 4 months.

IS IT PAINFUL?

Botox injections may feel like a “pinch” on your skin. If you would like, you can request that ice and/or numbing cream be applied to the area for minimal discomfort.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS?

Like most procedures and medications, Botox does have possible side effects. Some possible side effects are headaches, neck pain, and allergic reactions.
