As we age our skin reduces its natural production of collagen and elastin, which combined with repeated facial expressions from laughing, smiling and scowling results in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. VITAHL Medical Aesthetics Chicago offers BOTOX® treatments to visibly reduce the signs of aging without invasive surgical procedure or extensive recovery periods.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment made of injectable doses of highly purified botulinum toxin that block chemical signals from reaching the nerves in facial muscles, which temporarily reduces muscle activity and results in a visible smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® causes the muscles in the face to temporarily relax and creates a smoother, more “alert” look. Wrinkles caused by sun damage will not respond to BOTOX® treatments.
What are the benefits of BOTOX® treatment?
- Quick treatment sessions
- Minimal downtime
- Maintain a natural appearance without looking like you’ve “had work done”
- Customized treatment plans to achieve aesthetic goals
- High patient satisfaction rates
- One of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments
How long do the effects last?
Results can be noticeable within 24-48 hours of treatment, though we recommending waiting a full two weeks to fully observe changes. Lines can continue to improve for up to a month after treatment. In clinical trials, 90 percent of men and women saw improvement in their appearance one month after treatment. Results can last up to four months, but can vary patient to patient. If treatment is discontinued wrinkles will gradually return to their pre-treated state.
