Botox® continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for treating common signs of aging. During this procedure, botulinum toxin is injected into the skin to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Located in Lone Tree, Emmett Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Jennifer Emmett, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, has helped Denver and Centennial area men and women smooth out their appearance, giving them a more youthful appearance with Botox®.
What is Botox®?
Botox®, also called botulinum toxin type A, is a dermal filler that is injected into the skin to help minimize fine lines and wrinkles that naturally appear due to aging. It contains a refined bacterium and works by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. Botox® produces immediate, long-lasting results that leave your skin looking smoother and much more vibrant.
Botox® is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments because of its many long-term effects. Some benefits of Botox® include:
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Boosts self-esteem and confidence
- Non-surgical approach to younger looking skin
- Helps prevent excessive sweating
- Controls frequency and intensity of migraines
How is Botox® Administered?
Botox® is injected using a very fine-gauge needle. The procedure takes between 10 to 15 minutes to complete, depending on the number of injections. Most patients do not experience discomfort, however, topical anesthesia is available if necessary. A single treatment typically lasts about four to six months, and patients return for additional treatments to extend the results.
After Botox® you should avoid rubbing your face and strenuous exercise. Ice and over-the-counter medication can be used to reduce any discomfort or swelling following your treatment.
How Do I Prepare for Botox®?
You should let Dr. Emmett know if you have had any other injections over the last four months. You should also make it known if you are currently taking any allergy medications, sleep aids or muscle relaxers. Before treatment, you need to refrain from taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs, as they can increase bleeding.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with your appearance because of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases, Botox® may be the solution for you. Botox® can help rejuvenate your face, making you look younger and more confident. If you are looking for a non-surgical approach to reducing wrinkles and enhancing your appearance, call our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Emmett to see if Botox® is right for you.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
Botox® is considered an elective cosmetic procedure in most cases, so many insurances do not cover the cost. Dr. Emmett offers financing through CareCredit®, Bank SNB, and Prosper® Healthcare Lending. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
