BOTOX® Cosmetic is a fast, safe, and virtually painless way at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group to temporarily diminish mild, moderate, and severe lines and wrinkles.
Repeated facial expressions can sometimes diminish muscle tone and cause lines and wrinkles to develop. These include the vertical frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines) that form when you frown and squint.
BOTOX® injections block nerve impulses to the muscle causing the wrinkle. This reduces the activity of the muscle, relaxing it so that the wrinkle can soften.
The medically trained experts at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group are both skilled and experienced at administering BOTOX® injections. They can determine the correct dosage and placement of your injections to provide you with a subtle, natural, and beautiful result.
At Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group, we have also received advanced training and have experience with administering BOTOX® injections to improve these areas:
Prior to your BOTOX® treatment, the medically trained experts at Medi-Spa at Knoxville Dermatology Group will consult with you about what you wish to achieve and how you would like to look. If BOTOX® is a good option for you, she will provide you with detailed instructions to prepare for your injections. She may also suggest that you combine your BOTOX® injections with other treatments, such as injectable dermal fillers, in order to achieve the look you want.
BOTOX® is administered using a very fine needle. A topical anesthetic can be used to numb the treated areas, if preferred, but most people report that BOTOX® injections cause very little discomfort.
You should notice improvement within a few days, but the effects will be somewhat gradual during two weeks following your treatment. The results of BOTOX® injections last approximately 3-4 months, although you may find that you need injections again in a shorter time. The expertise of our medically trained practitioners ensures that your facial expressions and facial flexibility will not be affected by your BOTOX® treatment.
You can return to your normal activities as soon as you walk out of our office, and you can apply makeup immediately. You may experience some mild bruising, inflammation, and soreness in the areas where you received BOTOX® injections; however, these effects usually subside within a few days.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein complex produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum type A. It has been approved by the FDA in small dosages for aesthetic purposes. BOTOX® was approved by the FDA over 20 years ago for treatment of eye muscle spasms.
Serious side effects from BOTOX® injections are exceptionally rare but have been reported. It is important to note, however, that over 11 million successful BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have been administered since introduction. There is a patient satisfaction rate of 95%.
