Where does West Point Aesthetic Center get its Botox Cosmetic?
We get our Botox Cosmetic directly from Allergan, USA, and are a proud Platinum Plus member of Allergan partner privileges. Some clinics get their Botox from Canada or Europe, which is unsafe, and illegal. One other way to check if your provider is using Original Botox Cosmetic is to check on the botoxcosmetic.com website.
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic consists of the protein Botulinum Toxin A, made by Allergan, a world leader in prescription cosmetic medicines including Botox Cosmetic and Juvederm. Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved to reduce the appearance of glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows), and has also been used successfully to treat forehead lines, crows feet, blepharospasms (excessive blinking), hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the underarms, hands, and feet), migraine headaches, and other physical ailments.
How does Botox Cosmetic Work?
When injected into the muscle or tissue, Botox works by prohibiting the nerves from telling the muscles to contract or the sweat glands to produce sweat. This causes wrinkle and frown lines to relax and soften.
How will I look post treatment?
Directly after the treatment, you will notice some initial redness and swelling in the treated area that will subside within an hour. Within 3-5 days, you will start to notice a more rested appearance, however, the treatment will only have settled and look its’ best after 2 weeks of getting initial treatment. Contrary to popular belief, you can have a full range of facial expressions with Botox Cosmetic treatments.
Remain upright for 4 hours. Keep your head and neck straight, and avoid touching areas that have received treatment.
How long does Botox Cosmetic Last?
The effects of Botox Cosmetic typically last 3-4 months. Individual results will vary depending on the strength of the underlying muscles. Your lines will return to the pre-treatment appearance as the Botox® Cosmetic wears off. For your complimentary consultation contact our office at 909-355-1296
