Botox® in Denver is very popular procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for Botox® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" around the eyes. Botox® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
Reasons for Considering a Botox Treatment in Denver:
Excessive facial wrinkles.
Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
The procedure works by altering the activity levels of facial muscles beneath the skin that are related to wrinkles. A cream with local anesthetic can be placed on your skin prior to treatment, and ice will be immediately applied upon completion of the Botox® treatment. Typically a small amount of Botox® is injected into the area of the wrinkle. Botox® works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is the underlying facial muscles relax and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of a Botox® treatment will last approximately three to six months after which the patient may choose to repeat the procedure. The best results occur in those that keep up a consistent injection regimen.
In Denver, patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure, however following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients must avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 6 hours after the injections. It is also important to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours so that the medication can stay right where it was expertly placed! This will help avoid complications and maximize your safety and results.
