To help in aging gracefully and to avoid facial wrinkles and lines from occurring on the top portion of the face, Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina in Salina, KS is pleased to offer BOTOX to area individuals. This injectable treatment offers outstanding results and is very common among both women and men. It can make a significant improvement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic lines can still remain. BOTOX is a muscle relaxer that is a clean and purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these static wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly administered between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and across the forehead.
While BOTOX is commonly known throughout the aesthetic industry for helping to reduce and smooth away lines, it is used for medical conditions as well. Listed below are some of the reasons why an individual may receive a BOTOX injection other than cosmetic reasons:
- It can be used to treat TMJ
- It is used to help control and treat migraines
- It is used treat hyperhidrosis (also known as "excessive sweating")
- For some patients who have an uncontrollable "twitch" (such as eye twitching or for patients that habitually have twitching movements of the mouth, BOTOX can help control these movements)
At our Salina, KS practice, we offer BOTOX for cosmetic improvements, as well as to help treat TMJ and migraines.
Other Relaxer Options
At Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina, we also offer Dysport as an option for an injectable wrinkle relaxer. Similar to BOTOX, Dysport is especially useful in diminishing the appearance of wrinkles that appear within the eyebrows, also known as frown lines. Both BOTOX and Dysport relax the treated muscles to improve dynamic wrinkles; however, each brand is made to treat specific needs. Our trained injectors use enhanced techniques that will offer you a natural enhanced appearance without looking frozen, allowing the rest of you face to move normally. During your initial consultation, we can discuss which injectable would best suit your individualized needs to achieve optimal results.
BOTOX injections are great for patients who wish to soften the visible look of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their upper face without the need for surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It's a terrific noninvasive treatment if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows. It is also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable for your desired outcome.
BOTOX treatments are available as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina. If it is your first time to visit our office in Salina, KS to get BOTOX, we commonly perform the treatment on the same day as your initial consultation with one of our injectable coordinators. You will be asked to make a few expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us determine where the injections are best placed. The area will be prepared and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it is usually unnecessary. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, then you may resume to your usual routine with no required recovery period.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you may return to your normal daily routine, although strenuous activity should be skipped for a minimum of one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can appear red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any long-lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it often takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make your next appointment at Oral Facial and Implant Surgery Salina to extend your results.
