Safe and Effective Botox Injections in Salt Lake City and South Jordan
Have you noticed lines on your face? Are you down about the fact that your skin doesn’t look like it used to? Although aging is a natural part of life, many of us want to prolong our younger years by removing the lines that have come about in our later years. Botox is an effective treatment for removing a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles that have been caused by a variety of factors, including the aging process, stress, anxiety, and other environmental concerns. Although it can be frustrating to deal with wrinkles and laughter lines, you can now reverse the signs of aging and look younger again with Botox. Our Salt Lake City and South Jordan clinic offers Botox procedures that are effective in treating your lines in a safe way that has few side effects for most of our patients.
How Does Botox Work?
Contrary to what it may look like, facial lines actually go very deep. Because they are often caused by muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, and laughing, they are rooted in the underlying facial muscles. These muscles need to be targeted in order to remove wrinkles. Here’s how:
- Crow’s Feet – We will inject your orbicularis oculi on both sides of the face. The Botox facial injectable will reduce muscle activity, giving you a smoother look.
- Frown Lines – Multiple injections are usually placed on the forehead: in the procerus muscle and in the corrugator muscles. The result is a more relaxed look.
The Botox solution is injected just under the skin with a fine needle and works by relaxing the underlying facial muscles. At Swinyer Woseth Dermatology, our Botox treatments are given by licensed clinicians who are highly trained and experienced. The procedure itself is short, taking only about 10 minutes, and is well tolerated with no downtime.
Where Can I Get Botox?
Botox is very effective for treating wrinkles on the face, such as around the eyes, forehead, and eyebrows. However, Botox also has some other interesting applications. Some of the different uses of Botox include treatment of:
- Hyperhidrosis (severe underarm sweating)
- Muscle stiffness
- Muscle spasms
- Overactive bladder
- Uncontrolled blinking
- Certain eye disorders
- Certain movement disorders
What Can I Expect?
Ice may be used to numb the area before you are injected so there is little pain and discomfort. After your Botox treatment, it can take up to one week for the effects to show. The results are dramatic; however, they last for up to four months. So if you are keen on removing your lines for a longer period of time, you’ll have to have your injections done a few times per year. Although the results are effective, they are not so dramatic that you will not recognize yourself. After your treatment, you can go about your routine as normal.
Reverse the signs of aging and look younger again with fast and effective Botox procedures from our Salt Lake City and South Jordan dermatologists. This treatment is extremely safe, with few side effects for most patients.
I have a fair complexion and susceptible to skin issues. Enjoy going to their office the doctors and assistants have been very kind. Would recommend this office.
