Botulinum Toxin Norfolk

Wrinkles are the hallmarks of an aging face. They seem to sprout up everywhere, from the brow to the corners of the eyes to the chin. They are also incredibly hard to prevent. Years of repetitive muscle use forming the same facial movements and expressions leads to the formation of wrinkles.

At Norfolk Plastic Surgery, we want our patients to know that they don’t have to let their wrinkles make them feel like their youth is in the past. That is why we offer a variety of anti-wrinkle products that can give them smoother and younger-looking skin through a quick, easy, and pain-free treatment. Once you see how easy it is to treat these unsightly wrinkles and lines, you’ll no longer stress over them.

What Is Botulinum Toxin?

Products like Botox, Dysport,  and Jeuveau can easily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The reason why these products are so effective at combating wrinkles is because they treat the source of the problem, which provides longer-lasting and better-looking results.

These products contain a substance known as botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that can cause temporary paralysis of the muscles. This means that botulinum toxin can temporarily paralyze the tiny muscles in the face that have become strained from repeated use over the years. When Botox is injected into these strained muscles, it allows them to relax, restoring the smooth and youthful appearance of the skin.

What Can Botulinum Toxin Treat?

Certain products are FDA-approved to treat specific issues like frown lines on the brow. Others can be used to treat a wide array of aesthetic issues on the face. Our team at Norfolk Plastic Surgery can help you find the product that can provide you with your ideal results.

Botulinum toxin can be used to reduce the appearance of:

  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Vertical frown lines (brow)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Nose wrinkles
  • Lipstick lines
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Vertical neck bands

What to Expect

The injection process takes only 30 minutes to complete. Most patients do not experience any pain during the injection process, and a topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize any discomfort. The injections sites will be marked to ensure that these injections are precisely made.

It will take around one week to start to see the results of your treatment and up to 30 days to see your full results. The injections should provide results that last for around three months, though the exact duration of the results will vary from patient to patient. Once your results begin to fade, you can schedule additional treatments to help maintain the beauty of your skin.
