The break down of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin causing facial lines and wrinkles is experienced by both men and women. After many years of lauging, squinting, frowning and smoking the skin around the eyes, mouth and forehead will begin to develop expression lines. These lines can make you look older, tired and stressed. Botox® is a purified protein used since the early 1990’s for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. Small amounts are injected into the facial muscles responsible for creating wrinkles in such common areas as crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles. Botox® minimizes the facial motion that is creating these wrinkles. Injections into the muscles surrounding the eyebrow or corners of the mouth can also achieve a temporary brow lift or lip lift.
Experience gradual results of Botox® injectables in a mere 10-14 days . The treatment is painless and quick so that you can often have it done over lunch. Following a facial analysis by Dr. Siu and a discussion on your desired outcome, the procedure itself only takes about 45 minutes to perform. Discomfort is minimal and brief, a comfortable experience for all of our clients is at the top of our priority list. Dr. Siu may choose to use a local anesthetic cream or ice to minimize any discomfort you may have. It has been shown that regular use of this simple treatment could also significantly soften expression lines and help prevent further deepening of wrinkles.
Botox® will noticeably improve lines within 2-3 days and continue to diminish fine lines for up to one week. The effects of the injectable could last for up to four months. After repeat treatments, the effects may begin to last longer. You can choose to regularly schedule Botox® injections every four months, or you could also choose to save your treatments for special occasions once or twice a year.
Botox® is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. The treatment is intended to only relax the muscle beneath the lines at the point of injection. This means that all the other elements of your facial expression remains active. Botox® does not have any effect on the sensory nerves, so you will have normal feeling in the treated area.
