How Botox works?
Botox works by blocking the release of ACH (acetylcholine) at the neuromuscular junction; thereby decreasing contraction of muscle and reducing dynamic lines and wrinkles of aging; Botox is not immediate, peak effect is day 5-7, maximum effectiveness last 30 days slowing decreasing over 3-4 months.
Ingredients: botulism toxin type A, human albumin and sucrose
Patient expectations: Botox reduces dynamic lines in the face. These are lines that show up when we raise our eyebrows, smile and frown. While Botox reduces dynamic lines, static lines may still be visible. Static lines, are the lines of aging seen with the face at rest. Over time, by reducing dynamic lines through Botox treatment, static lines will also soften. To speed up the process of reducing static lines, patients should also consider facial peels, micro needling and PRP treatments.
As with any medical procedure there are risks. These risks include but are not limited to infection, allergic reaction, bleeding, bruising and unintended spread of the medication. Your medical history will be reviewed and an exam will be performed by Dr. Hoffman, discussed before any medical procedure is completed.
Who gets dermal fillers and Botox?
While these services may not be for everyone, they have become quite popular in recent years. This type of care can begin in a patient’s 20’s, as an early start reduces the lines and creases of the face that cause wrinkles later in life. Once Dr. Hoffman performs an exam, he will determine whether you are a good candidate for care.
