BOTOX® Cosmetic & Therapeutic treatment – Johnston, IA

BOTOX treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning.  BOTOX can also be used to reduce clenching and grinding, eliminate TMJ pain, prevent tension headaches, and correct a gummy smile.

Before treatment

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to BOTOX treatment. In addition, a complete clinical examination is completed in order to determine the most appropriate injection sites.  Any issues or concerns will be discussed.

Digital photographs will be taken to document pre-treatment appearance.  The areas that will be treated are marked and the recommended number of units is discussed.

The Botox Procedure

Botox injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made.  The procedure is very quick and usually only takes a couple minutes.  The effects are not permanent and will need to be repeated every three to four months, as desired. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of BOTOX leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botox is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.

Post-Operative Information

After BOTOX treatment, patients may experience slight redness or bruising around the injection sites that fades quickly. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects include temporary weakness of nearby muscles or, in rare cases, a droopy eyelid. BOTOX wears off after a couple months, so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated with BOTOX treatment at the time of your consultation.
