BOTOX®: A Simple, Noninvasive Way to Treat Wrinkles
BOTOX® IN PALM DESERT, CA
Botox® is one of the most popular injectable treatments, offering patients relief from both facial wrinkles and migraines. At Eko Plastic Surgery, we offer Botox® and other injectable treatments to the residents of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, CA and surrounding areas.
WHAT IS BOTOX®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment composed of an ingredient known as botulinum toxin. Botulinum toxin is a neuromodulator, which means that it blocks nerve signals to the brain. When injected into facial muscles, it can prevent them from contracting. This leads to the relaxation of wrinkle-causing muscles in the treated areas, producing a more youthful appearance. As a result, Botox® can be an effective solution for crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. Botox® can also be used for managing migraines, helping patients enjoy less frequent and severe migraines.
HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX® COST?
The cost of your Botox® treatment at Eko Plastic Surgery will vary depending on the treatment plan that we develop for you. During your consultation, we will discuss your cosmetic goals and treatment needs in order to determine the treatment approach that will be ideal for you. For this reason, we will not be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment until you have the chance to come in and discuss your treatment goals with Dr. Eko.
WHAT IS BOTOX® TREATMENT LIKE?
The Botox® treatment is performed using a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Once the skin is numbed, Botox® will be injected into and around the desired treatment areas. The exact number and location of these injections will depend on your unique treatment goals. This process takes less than 30 minutes. After the treatment, you may notice some mild swelling or redness in the treatment areas, but there will be no downtime required. You will be able to resume work and other normal activities immediately.
WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS FROM MY BOTOX® TREATMENT?
You will begin to notice results from your Botox® treatment after any side effects fade and the Botox® formula begins to take effect. Most patients begin to see results within a few days, with the full results visible within a week. At this point, patients can enjoy a reduction in facial wrinkles or a reduction in migraine frequency and severity.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS FROM BOTOX® LAST?
The results from Botox® last between four and six months. After this point, patients can easily receive additional treatments to maintain their results.
