How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX is an injectable treatment administered in-office as a series of injections just below the skin. It is actually a sterile and purified protein that temporarily blocks the signals from nerves to the muscles in the face. Treated muscles are unable to contract. When these muscles are forced to relax, it diminishes dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. BOTOX® can temporarily soften or even eliminate facial wrinkles caused by facial expression muscles including:
The effects of BOTOX® Injections in Bradenton typically last for a few months. As the protein wears off, muscle action is slowly returned and the wrinkles or fine lines will begin to appear again. Many people choose to maintain their results with regular treatments. Scheduling treatments at regular intervals helps the results last longer by making the muscles responsible for the wrinkles weaker over time.
Natural-Looking Results From BOTOX® in Sarasota Area
When your friends and family see you a few days after you have had the treatment, they will notice that you look more refreshed. You shouldn’t be surprised if your friends say it looks like are you sleeping better. They may want to know what has changed in your life. But the last thing you’ll hear is someone asking if you’ve gone in for BOTOX® treatments.
And isn’t that exactly what you want from your treatment? One of the biggest fears that people have about getting non-surgical cosmetic treatments is that everyone is going to know. Some taboo around getting cosmetic treatments is gone. But there’s still enough of it left that makes people feel uncomfortable about having the entire world know that they have had treatments.
Benefits of BOTOX® Treatment
BOTOX® delivers immediate results. A single office visit and less than 30 minutes can transform your face and give you a more youthful appearance with no downtime. Because it’s minimally-invasive and without a recovery period, it’s also ideal for people who are ready for anti-aging treatment but don’t need results as dramatic as surgery can provide.
The procedure itself is safe, quick and easy. Anywhere from 6 to 8 Botox injections will be administered to the muscle just under the skin following application of local anesthesia.
The physician may also ask you to contract the treated muscles after the injections by raising your eyebrows, squinting, and frowning to distribute the BOTOX® throughout the treatment site.
BOTOX® is intended for individuals aged 18 or older. It works on everyone with dynamic wrinkles as long as there is enough skin elasticity.
These treatments are so beneficial because all of us have to deal with aging. There’s nothing that we can do to stop the aging process. BOTOX® is a tool that many have been able to use to slow the aging process down.
One of the reasons why Bradenton’s Box Treatments are so popular is because of how safe it is. Before this treatment came on the market, there was not a non-surgical treatment that could effectively minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. There were surgical options that had questionable results. After a few people had noticeably bad surgeries, many became reluctant to go under the knife to address dynamic wrinkles. They opted to just live with them.
Now, people are able to address dynamic wrinkles with something as simple as a 15-minute visit to our clinic. BOTOX injections are designed to pinpoint the nerves that control the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles.

Am I A Good Candidate?
BOTOX® isn’t for everyone. Some people may not be good candidates, including those who take antibiotics, people with weakened facial muscles, anyone allergic to bovine products, and those who lack sufficient skin elasticity to see good results. If you have dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines, forehead creases, and/or crow’s feet and you are in otherwise good health, you may be a great candidate.
