Express your true self with Botox®
Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE in Phoenix, AZ is proud to offer BOTOX® to local individuals to assist in graceful aging and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face. This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX® can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are caused by expressive movement of the muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic creases can still exist. BOTOX® is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX® is injected to smooth the skin. Dr. Ryan Krch N.M.D. most commonly places BOTOX® injections between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.
Ideal candidates for BOTOX®
BOTOX® is great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX® can also be used as a preventive treatment — even if you do not yet show signs of aging, keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for other types of treatments, such as PDO thread lifts.
BOTOX® Procedure Technique
BOTOX® treatments are conveniently done as outpatient procedures at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE. If it is your first time to visit us in Phoenix, AZ for BOTOX®, we may perform the injection at the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Ryan. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections need to be placed. The skin will be cleansed, and BOTOX® will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. BOTOX® injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes; then you can resume your normal routine almost right away.
What to expect from your BOTOX® Treatment
After the procedure, you may get back to your typical routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may result in accidentally spreading the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear bruised, red, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you will not develop any severe or lasting side effects. In many cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX® can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to Dr. Ryan about how often to schedule your following appointments at Krch AESTHETIC MEDICINE to extend your results.
