At our state-of-the-art practice in Las Vegas, Botox is one of our most frequently performed treatments. Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox injections are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry. It is estimated that more than 6 million injections are given each year. Usually, these injections are either Botox, Xeolin, or Dyspot. These neurotoxins are derived from Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring organism that exists inactively and is also non-toxic.
What is BOTOX?
The Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the skin, especially around the eyes. The toxin paralyzes the underlying muscles. For this reason, Botox treatments are usable beyond beauty. Some people use the injections to manage muscular movements, bladder and bowel disorders, migraines, and excessive sweating.
How to Expect During Your Treatment
BOTOX is administered using a fine needle. While most of our patients don’t complain about the injections, we do offer a topical numbing agent to help our patients feel more comfortable about the treatment. The procedure is done within just a few minutes. Oftentimes, there is minimal bruising and bleeding, which will subside quickly. The injections will be placed in the forehead or around the eyes, depending on the area of concern.
