Botox Treatment in Austin with BOTOX Cosmetic
Dr. Sneed was the first Diamond level BOTOX Cosmetic injector in Austin, Texas.
He is personally one of Austin’s most experienced BOTOX injectors, and has had elite injection status for many years.
The use of Botox Cosmetic is now one of the world’s most commonly performed cosmetic dermatology procedures. It is also one of the safest, most effective and easiest to administer cosmetic treatments available. BOTOX Cosmetic in Austin and the rest of the world, helps millions of people around the world eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles. People in Austin are very animated. We live large and squint at the sun. Animation lines and wrinkles can appear from facial expression especially on foreheads, between their eyes and around the outside corners of their eyes. BOTOX Cosmetic decreases the damaging muscle movements while allowing you to be very expressive. Most of us don’t realize that we have over 100 muscles on our face, by just shutting down a few of those muscles you dramatically decrease lines and wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX Cosmetic injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX Cosmetic may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
How is BOTOX Cosmetic Measured?
Our Austin BOTOX injections are measured in terms of “units”. Different areas need a different number of units. Usually, the upper forehead requires 20 units, and the crow’s feet requires 30 units. The frown lines over the brows requires 25 units. Units are not injections. Just a few injections are needed to deliver these treatments per area.
Do Botox Injections Hurt?
Not at all with an experienced BOTOX Cosmetic injector, such as Dr. Seed and his staff. The entire treatment will take only 5 minutes and there is no down-time. Have it done at lunchtime and go right back to work. There may be a few small welts lasting about 15 minutes right after the injections have been administered. DON’T be afraid of these needles. They are the tiny ones used in the administration of insulin. You should barely feel the very shallow injection.
Can Botox Help Me with Sweaty Hands, Feet and Underarms?
Absolutely. We have a large following of people that want to stop ruining clothing and shoes due to excessive sweating. Dr. Sneed is an expert in this condition called, hyperhydrosis. Sometimes, this can be covered by insurance. Austin BOTOX treatments for hyperhydrosis can last up to one year.
How Often will I Need to Repeat Botox Treatment?
Most patients will have to repeat their Austin Botox treatment every 3 to 6 months. Also, as you continue to use Botox, you may be able to increase the amount of time between appointments. Two things happen to promote more long-term correction of wrinkles. First, you experience a little behavior modification (if you can’t make the damaging movements with your face, you forget that you can do that) and you actually lose a little muscle mass in those areas which are no longer being exercised on a daily basis (i.e., the lifting of the brows every 15 seconds).
Final Thoughts About Botox with Aesthetica MedSpa
My final word – if you need Botox, there is no other substitute for it. Having a laser treatment and chemical peel daily will not make up for damaging muscle movements. It works wonderfully in combination with other treatments like fillers and Threadlift.
