WHAT IS “BOTOX”
Botulinum toxin type A is a natural bacterial protein that blocks nerve impulses to the muscle. It is synthesized as a highly purified prescription medication approved for the temporary treatment of lines and wrinkles. BOTOX®, DYSPORT®, and XEOMIN® are all forms botulinum toxin type A that are available for use in the United States, and all work by blocking the nerve signal to the muscle. Treatments last for a period of 3 – 4 months. When administered by a highly trained professional, a subtle, natural result can be achieved that preserves facial expression.
Although it is most well known for its cosmetic uses, it is also helpful in treating many other conditions, including excessive sweating and reducing muscle spasms that contribute to headaches and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ).
Individual results may vary
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR TREATMENT
Small amounts of medication are injected, with very little risk. Although rare, occasionally a bruising at the injection site is possible. Typically this is very slight and easily concealed. Following this, there are no particular precautions and patients can continue normal activities. The effects of Botox® take about three days to become noticeable. A full effect will be reached in 7 – 10 days and lasts for about four months. Dr. Becker's goal is to reach the desired result in a single treatment, but he is also very careful to avoid over-treatment. The amount of medication needed varies from person to person, and this means some additional treatment may be needed to reach the desired effect, although this is uncommon. Dr. Becker keeps detailed records, making this even less likely during future treatments.
