Botox has become the go-to wrinkle treatment today, with a proven track record for success and a large, loyal following. At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, Botox is one of the procedures we perform most on a daily basis. This relatively straightforward injectable treatment offers a myriad of benefits to our patients, which explains its high demand at our office and other clinics and medispas across the country.

Track Record of Safety

Botox has been used for more than a decade as an anti-aging treatment. Prior to that time, the prescription medication has also been used as a treatment for a variety of medical conditions, including uncontrollable eye twitching and a painful condition of the neck known as cervical dystonia. Today, Botox continues to be used in the medical realm for treating excessive sweating, migraines and bladder control issues. Its record for safety and efficacy has been firmly established through decades of successful use.

Effective Wrinkle Smoother

When used for cosmetic purposes, Botox effectively reduces the appearance of some types of wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles responsible for creating those wrinkles. The medication provides its benefit without compromising the patient’s ability to make certain facial expressions. Only the lines are visibly reduced, giving you a more youthful appearance as long as the medication continues to work.

Multiple Treatment Areas

Botox works in a number of treatment areas, including:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Fine lines in the outer corners of the eyes

The medication can also provide a non-surgical brow lift, refreshing your look and making you appear less tired. You can address all of these concerns in a single treatment session or focus on just one treatment area at a time – the choice is yours.

Fast Procedure, No Downtime

Botox injections typically take just a few minutes to complete and involve little if any discomfort. The injections are performed using a very fine needle just under the skin’s surface. Once your Botox injections are complete, you may immediately return to your regular activities. This quick treatment has been dubbed the lunch hour anti-aging procedure for good reason!

Minimal Side Effects

Most patients do not experience any side effects after their Botox injections. Those that do may see mild bruising or swelling around the injection sites, which typically subside within a day or two. As long as you get your Botox treatments from a provider who is trained and experienced in this treatment, you should not experience any other side effects from your treatment.

Cost-Efficient Anti-Aging

Because Botox has been available for some time, it is one of the most affordable anti-aging treatments available today. Many physicians that offer the treatment also offer rewards programs for their patients, which means the more treatments you have, the more affordable the price becomes.

There are plenty of reasons to like Botox if you are interested in maintaining a more youthful appearance. To find out more or schedule your procedure, contact Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics at 952-460-1970.
