Would you like to rejuvenate your facial appearance, but not with surgery? If so, neuromodulators (Botox) can help. By injecting small amounts in various areas of your face, Dr. Douglas Grace can smooth wrinkles and soften your facial expressions. This treatment requires no downtime, and the results are apparent almost immediately. To find out whether you might be an appropriate candidate, explore the information below.
Injectable Neuromodulator Treatment (Botox): Is It For Me?
Dr. Grace uses injectable neuromodulators to treat facial wrinkles caused by muscular contractions. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these wrinkles are visible when you smile, squint your eyes or make various facial expressions. They are different from static wrinkles — fine lines that are visible even when your face is calm. Dynamic wrinkles include crow’s feet, frown lines and creases in the forehead. Injectable neuromodulators soften these wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, giving the face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Your Injectable Neuromodulator (Botox) Procedure
During your appointment, Dr. Grace will first examine your facial features and skin to determine whether you are a good candidate for injectable neuromodulator treatment (aka Botox) in Burlington/Oakville. He will then carefully choose and mark several points on your face where the neuromodulator will be injected. Dr. Grace will use a tiny needle to inject very small amounts of the substance in your face. Although the procedure is not painful, some patients prefer a numbing gel to enhance their comfort. Immediately after the injections, you might experience very minor swelling or slight redness, which will go away quickly.
The entire treatment requires about half an hour to complete. You will begin to see results immediately, and they will improve over the next few days.
