Come get BOTOX treatment in Bloomington, IL
The board-certified plastic surgeons at Twin City Plastic Surgery in Bloomington, IL have over 30-years combined experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as frown lines and deep wrinkles. Utilized in minimal amounts for cosmetic purposes, the toxin found in BOTOX® is injected into the facial muscle of the treated area, causing a blockage in the impulse of that specific muscle; doing so weakens and relaxes the muscle, which prevents the appearance of unwanted lines on the face.
The BOTOX® procedure
The whole procedure usually lasts about 15 minutes, and after the procedure, the patient may experience slight discomfort in the injection sites, which may be alleviated with the application of cold compresses, as allowed by the doctor.
Recovery from BOTOX® injections
Minimal recovery time is needed after the administration of BOTOX®. A few days after treatment, the patient may notice redness and bruising in the injection sites but will fade over time. Results normally are noticed three to seven days following BOTOX® treatment, and the outcomes of the procedure will improve over the course of three to four months; after which, the results will start to fade. To achieve longer-lasting results, patients can come back for repeated sessions at different intervals. When BOTOX® is administered in repeated treatments, the targeted muscles will more likely produce longer-lasting results since they are atrophied or thinned by continuous BOTOX® injections.
