How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® contains a neurotoxin, onabotulinumtoxinA. It’s a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic injection that temporarily relaxes muscles and blocks nerves that cause wrinkles to appear. It’s a quick treatment and minimally-invasive as it involves an injection from a needle.
When Botox® gets injected into specific target areas, it prevents certain muscles from contracting when smiling, frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows. The effects of Botox® result in noticeably smoother frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet lines, and forehead.
If you decide to have Botox® injections, it makes sense to select a provider that is both experienced and skilled in administering them. Renew MD is one of the leading providers of cosmetic Botox® treatments in the Reno, NV area.
Benefits of Botox®
Perhaps the most significant advantage of Botox® is how it negates the need to have a facelift for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and forehead lines. Botox® is a muscle relaxant and doesn’t require patients to have surgical procedures.
Another advantage of Botox® is that you can see the effects of the injections shortly after your treatment session. Most of our clients notice the positive impact of Botox® within 7 to 10 days after their injections.
Botox® injections are also quick to administer. For most clients, Botox® injections are complete within ten to fifteen minutes. They are the perfect cosmetic treatment to have during your lunch break, and there’s no downtime associated with Botox®.
Some clients may experience minor swelling or redness at the injection sites. But, they will typically go away around two to three days after your Botox® treatment session.
