Choosing BOTOX in Las Vegas
The Science of BOTOX Cosmetic
Through normal facial expression, muscles contract and the skin wrinkles temporarily. The repetition of this process over the years, combined with the harsh elements of the desert climate, causes wrinkling to become deeper and more distinct. In Las Vegas, BOTOX Cosmetic alleviates wrinkles by temporarily immobilizing the small muscles that contract to produce vertical frown lines and crow's feet around the eyes. This purified form of the botulinum toxin has proven to be very safe in the small doses used for cosmetic improvement.
Typically, treatment will include a series of small injections into the small muscles that control the eyebrows, and those just outside the corner of the eye in the area of the crow's feet. BOTOX Cosmetic in Las Vegas can reduce or even eliminate vertical frown lines, crow's feet, horizontal frown lines, and neck bands. BOTOX is an excellent way to refresh and rejuvenate the appearance of the face without any invasive procedures.
BOTOX treatments performed at Westfield Eye Center will be tailored to your individual needs, and will typically take approximately 15 to 30 minutes. The doctor will start by cleaning the area, and applying a topical anesthetic. Using a tiny needle, the doctor will inject the BOTOX Cosmetic into the targeted muscles. There should be very little discomfort or swelling, as the needle is extremely small and does not penetrate the skin deeply. Any redness or swelling is easily managed with a cool compress. Most patients return to work or other normal activities immediately following their procedure.
The effects of BOTOX are not immediate, but emerge gradually over the course of 5 to 7 days. Most patients who undergo treatment with BOTOX at the Westfield Eye Center report that their results last approximately 3 to 4 months. Regular treatment can create even longer lasting results, and may even help prevent wrinkles from forming or worsening.
