Wrinkle reduction is possible through a simple and efficient Botox® treatment offered by Avalon Laser of Carlsbad. This cosmetic method provides younger-looking, rejuvenated skin without cause for major surgery or invasive cosmetic procedures. You’ve likely heard of Botox® in popular culture but what benefits does it provide or even work on the skin?
Botox® is a protein injected directly into affected areas to treat moderate to severe wrinkles. The muscles underneath your skin grow increasingly tense over time leading to fine lines and facial wrinkles. Botox® relaxes these muscle tissues with the results being smoother, youthful skin texture. The most commonly treated facial lines include frown lines, forehead creases and crows feet at the corner of the eyes.
While wrinkle reduction is the most common application of Botox®, it’s also utilized to treat hyperhidrosis, a condition involving excessive underarm sweating. When injected into the affected area, Botox® obstructs the flow of the naturally occurring chemical triggering excessive perspiration. This effective treatment offers up to six months of relief from embarrassing underarm sweat.
Like most medicinal treatments, a patient may experience side effects shortly after Botox® treatment. While not everyone will experience them, those who do will find they are very minor and pass within the span of a week. Nausea, flu syndrome, respiratory infection and headache are among the most common.
Patients will find over the counter medications are more than adequate to remedy any adverse effects.
