Botox, a form of botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxin that works by paralyzing muscle activity. Administered through injections, Botox can help you look years younger and maintain a pleasant expression and refreshed look when a skilled medical professional like Jan Dubensky treats you.
Botox stops signals from nerve cells from getting to the muscles so the muscles no longer contract. Administering Botox to certain areas of your face helps to stop the formation of wrinkles. This is why Botox is now widely used as a cosmetic procedure. It helps freeze certain muscles so you can’t make expressions that lead to wrinkles, such as raising your eyebrows very high or frowning.
Jan Dubensky can administer Botox in several areas of the face. Botox also has other uses, such as treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) or migraines. As an aesthetic treatment, it is especially effective for:
Jan Dubensky administers Botox with a syringe designed with a very fine needle so you barely feel a pinch. She does his best to make sure you feel little to no pain during treatment, but she can apply ice if you are particularly sensitive.
The injections only take a few seconds to administer. You might notice some mild redness and swelling at the injection sites for a few hours after treatment. Most patients return to their regular activities that same day.
You can expect to see the full results within 10-14 days after treatment. Jan Dubensky might ask you to come in for a follow-up and may perform any touch-ups, if you need any, at that time. Even though your body metabolizes Botox, you can expect the effects to last three to four months, depending on your age, lifestyle, and other factors.
If you want to freshen up your look without going under the knife or prevent wrinkles from forming, Botox might be right for you. Book your consultation with Jan Dubensky online or call the practice to learn how Botox can help you.
