What We Think About Botox

Sep 23, 2015 | Blog, Botox

Botox in ScottsdaleBotox is the most popular cosmetic injectable, and it’s easy to see why. It can help almost anyone look younger and more refreshed as it smooths problem wrinkles. If you’re looking more tired or older than you feel, Botox is one of the easiest, most effective ways to improve the way you look.
At North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, we love this treatment and are sure you will, too, for the following reasons:

It’s very effective

These injections do a great job of softening wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines, according to Dr. Anderson. “One treatment can make a big difference!” she points out.
This treatment can help women of any age look younger and more refreshed, and it can even be used on wrinkles that haven’t set yet. Younger women have been able to prevent wrinkles by having the injections performed before wrinkles set in.

It has an extensive record of safety

Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2002, and it’s used on several million people each year. The injections are extremely safe when administered at our clinic. We use only actual Botox and ensure that it’s stored properly. Only doctors perform the injections.
Side effects are possible with nearly any procedure, but they’re typically minor and occur in less than 1 percent of cases.

Preparation and recovery time are minimal

Another reason why we – and our patients – like this treatment is because very little preparation is needed prior to receiving your injections, and there’s no downtime afterward. Each treatment takes only about 10 minutes.
Afterwards, you can resume your normal activities. That’s why many people like to have a treatment during their lunch hour and then go back to work. All you need to do is avoid rubbing the treated areas for 12 hours, and don’t lie down for one hour.
