We’ve all heard of Botox at one time or another. The results are fantastic when you want to reduce wrinkles or lines appearing around your eyes, your forehead or around your mouth. These are the most common areas treated. And did you know that Botox can help in other health-related areas such as excessive sweating, bladder incontinence, migraines and muscular disorders?
How Does It Work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscle so muscles no longer contract. This effectively relaxes muscles, causing a smoothing of the overlying skin and softening of the wrinkles. To treat facial wrinkles, it is imperative to see a trusted and respected M.D. Dr. Lo is one of the most experienced injectors in Tucson, having injected Botox for over 24 years.
How Long Does it Take?
Getting Botox injections takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. A fine needle is used to inject the Botox into specific muscles with very little discomfort. It normally takes three to seven days for the Botox to take full effect. A consultation with Dr. Lo can answer any questions you may have regarding Botox.
What Makes Botox Right For You?
All of us repeatedly use muscles in our face either voluntarily or involuntarily, and often the years of smiling, frowning and laughing can leave a lasting impression – in the form of wrinkles. You want others to see you laughing, not your laugh lines. With Botox, these signs of aging can be corrected, leaving you with a more youthful look.
