How Does Botox Work?
As previously mentioned, Botox is comprised of purified protein. When injected directly into the area of concern, Botox inhibits a chemical in the body that causes muscle contraction with each facial expression, such as frowning, smiling and so on. By relaxing these muscles, Botox not only smooths out the existing facial folds in the area, it also prevents further formation of deep lines and wrinkles. Botox is delivered in small doses that are per-determined by Dr. Reza Tirgari based on each Botox patient’s needs. Once injected, Botox results can last up to three months. touch up treatments are needed to maintain the results.
Botox Recovery and Aftercare
Botox does not require any downtime and patients can return to their routine, daily activities right away. Some patients my experience mild swelling and bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered up with make up for a day or two. In most cases, Botox is a safe, low-risk injectable that allows our patients to improve their facial appearance and move on with their life. Dr. Tirgari and his staff have years of experience treating San Diego and Carlsbad Botox patients. With us, you are in good hands.
Botox Side Effects
As with any medicine, there are some possible side effects with Botox; however, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If Botox side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
The effects of Botox are noticeable one to two days after the procedure and can last up to six months. Since Botox only stays in the body for a maximum of six months, any side effects associated with the medication will diminish after that time period. The common side effects include nausea, flu syndrome, respiratory infection, forehead and eyelid drooping, and headache. Less common Botox risks include symptoms that are generally associated with the injection. These include redness, pain, swelling, numbness, bruising, muscle weakness and bleeding. Normally, these symptoms generally subside within a week after injection.
