WHAT IS BOTOX?
Battling the early signs of aging, such as dynamic lines and wrinkles is quick and easy with BOTOX injectable treatments at Arizona Skin Institute. Leading dermatologist Dr. Jay Mehta is proud to offer BOTOX injections to Surprise, AZ adults who wish to improve their aesthetic. This injectable procedure helps people attain the youthful-looking complexion they've been hoping for. BOTOX is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily halts the contractions of the underlying facial muscles that make facial expressions. The creases that develop from these continuous muscle contractions are referred to as "dynamic" because they are the product of constant muscle activity. BOTOX can significantly soften these lines and help prevent future wrinkles without any downtime or lengthy recovery. If you live in Surprise or Phoenix, AZ, then give our office a call to learn more.
IS BOTOX RIGHT FOR ME?
BOTOX injections are great for patients who want to diminish and soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases on their upper face without undergoing surgery. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment for those who do not yet show signs of aging. It may be a great non-invasive solution if you have obvious forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, or creases around the eyes (Crow's feet). If you experience deeper wrinkles, then an injectable filler may be more suitable. Depending on your unique condition and cosmetic goals, Dr. Mehta will determine if BOTOX is the best option for you during your initial consultation.
BOTOX injectable treatments are done as an outpatient procedure at Arizona Skin Institute. If it's your first time visiting our office in Surprise, AZ to get BOTOX, we often perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Mehta. We'll ask you to make various expressions using your upper face — like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc. — which will help us determine where to place the injections. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed between the brows where the number "11" appears, on Crow's feet, and across the forehead.
We'll cleanse your skin and then administer BOTOX with a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually isn't necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may return to your normal day with no required recovery period.
