Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles by paralyzing the small muscles under your skin. These muscles are responsible for your facial expressions and can cause the furrow on your brow and other deep wrinkles on your face. By smoothing out these wrinkles, Botox injections restore a youthful appearance to your skin.
Botox is FDA-approved and has been studied extensively. Used in over 50 countries, Botox has helped millions of people look younger and feel more confident. In addition to reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles, Botox can treat wrinkles on your lips and chest. It is a component of chemical brow lifts and neck lifts. Dr. Kerns also treats hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) with Botox injections. You can have Botox injections combined with other injectables like dermal fillers or with low-level light therapy to help you look your best.
Botox injections are quick and painless, typically taking 10-20 minutes. Dr. Kerns carefully studies your face to determine the best places for your injections. She then cleans your skin before making the injections. Botox injections are not painful, but if you’re sensitive to pain you may request a topical anesthetic.
You don’t need to take any time off work to recover after Botox injections. Many patients even schedule their appointments for their lunch breaks.
You start to notice the effects of Botox 24-48 hours after your treatment. While every patient has a unique experience, the results should last for up to four months. You can have follow-up injections every four to six months. Over time, your subdermal muscles become trained to stay relaxed, making your results last longer.
