Botox Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

Botox® Cosmetic is a very popular, non-surgical solution for wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions. Over the years, facial expressions including frowning, squinting, and concentrating can form furrows and creases in your skin. Your skin may also become less elastic as time passes, and moderate-to-severe wrinkles and lines remain or worsen. Botox® Cosmetic in Louisville, Kentucky, temporarily corrects signs of aging, such as frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet.

Botox Myths Debunked

How does Botox® work?

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription injection formula of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein (onabotulinumtoxinA), which has been extensively proven to temporarily improve frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet or lines located at the corner of the eyes.  Botox® Cosmetic addresses the cause of these cosmetic concerns: repeated muscle contractions from facial expressions over the years.

Your Louisville Botox Treatment

When one of our expert providers injects Botox® into the overworked facial muscles, it blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles, reducing the muscle activity that leads to these unsightly lines. With the help of our skincare specialists, you can achieve a more refreshed and relaxed appearance without looking “overdone” or “frozen”. At Salzman MedSpa near Lexington, Kentucky, we provide only natural-looking results that shed years off of your appearance.

Your Personalized Approach

Before your Botox® Cosmetic treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our qualified providers to determine the amount of Botox® needed to achieve your personal aesthetic goals. They will also determine the injection locations and recommend when your next appointment should be scheduled to maintain your age-defying results. In most cases, patients require touch-up appointments every four to six months.

Why Credentials Matter for Botox Injections

What can I Expect with a Botox® Treatment in Louisville, KY?

During a Botox® Cosmetic session, one of our expert injectors will inject Botox® using a very small needle into the targeted muscles. Patients generally report a slight pinch during the injection, and if you are concerned about discomfort, please let our specialist know and additional pain reducing creams can be placed over the intended injection sites. Every injection session is customized based on the severity and location of your concerns.

Your Botox® Cosmetic Results

Within 24 to 48 hours, you will begin to see a softening in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. However, you should allow up to 10 days to see full results from Botox®. In most cases, results have been shown to last up to four months. Each patient’s results will vary, including how long the results last, so it is important to talk to our providers about what you can expect.

How Long is Recovery After a Botox® Cosmetic Treatment in Louisville?

With Botox® Cosmetic, discomfort and downtime are minimal. Often called a “lunchtime” procedure, you can come receive your injection treatment and head right back to work. Generally, the only restrictions are to avoid rubbing the treated area for the rest of the day and avoid NSAIDs (Advil, ibuprofen, etc.) to decrease your chances of bruising.
