Be the Best You Can Be
One day, without warning, you may glance in the mirror and notice that you look tired, even though you feel great. A closer examination may reveal the subtle signs of aging—lines between your eyebrows, a few at the corners of your eyes, or perhaps lines in your forehead. Individually they may not seem too bad but together they present a vision that doesn’t jive with the “real” you. What can be done?
A Minimally Invasive Alternative to Cosmetic Surgery
An improvement in your tired appearance doesn’t necessarily require cosmetic surgery. In 2016 over 7 million minimally invasive procedures were performed in the United States involving Botulinum Toxin Type A, like Botox® Cosmetic*, to repair frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial imperfections caused by wrinkles. In addition to almost no downtime, these procedures are also more financially viable for many patients. They provide a temporary solution that can be achieved quickly with few negative side effects.
Botox® Cosmetic is delivered as an injection to the treatment site. The amount of Botox® Cosmetic required will be determined by your Derick professional prior to treatment. Depending upon the number of areas and the depth of wrinkles being treated, the entire process can take
as little as just a few minutes. Many patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure beyond a slight pinch at the time of the injection. Most patients can resume their usual activities right away.
When Will Results Appear?
Each patient can react differently, but most will notice a subtle improvement in their appearance within 4 to 7 days. The improved appearance usually will last as long as three months. Additional treatment will depend upon your goals and the best options available for you as determined together with your Derick provider.
