Cosmetic BOTOX Specialists Serving Grand Rapids, MI and the Surrounding Michigan Area
BOTOX® is a protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. For more than a decade, BOTOX® has been used to treat neurological and ophthalmological disorders. Targeted injections are also used for cosmetic procedures, effective at diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles in many parts of the face. We purchase our BOTOX® directly from Allergan, the only FDA-approved source in the U.S.
How long does the procedure take?
To make sure that this treatment is right for you, we start with a consultation. It’s also important that you understand what to expect from the procedure in terms of results. The procedure itself takes less than 15 minutes, and there is no downtime needed for recovery. You could even schedule the procedure for your lunch break and go back to work without anyone knowing.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® works by blocking impulses to the muscle, causing the targeted facial muscle to relax. When contracted, these muscles are a major cause of many of the most visible wrinkles. Allowing a few key muscles to relax allows the skin to smooth out with fewer wrinkles. Because BOTOX® injections target only a few specific muscle groups, the muscles that control facial expressions continue to function normally. For the best results, it helps to find qualified and experienced doctors that regularly give these injections.
How quickly will I see results?
The effects of BOTOX® are not immediately visible, and it may take as much as two weeks to really see the full extent of your results. Most people can begin to see changes over the course of the first several days after injections.
