Botox® injections are well-known for their cosmetic and medical uses. Dr. Roberto Palmieri and our team here at Palmieri Dentistry in Mooresville, North Carolina, offer Botox injections for cosmetic and dental reasons, such as treating gummy smiles.
Are you considering Botox but aren’t sure when to start? Put your best face forward and treat yourself this holiday season with Botox® injections.
Here’s what you need to know about Botox.
In the world of injectables, there are many options, but none have achieved household name status like Botox. Botox Cosmetic has been reducing the appearance of wrinkles since 2002.
Dynamic wrinkles 一 crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the “11” lines between your eyebrows that result from repetitive facial expressions 一 can make you appear grumpy, tired, or worried 一 even if you’re not. Smoothing away these wrinkles can restore a more youthful appearance.
You want to look fresh and bright for your holiday photos, so it’s key to schedule your appointments accordingly. While there isn’t much downtime after Botox injections, you certainly don’t want to arrive for a holiday-inspired photoshoot with post-injection redness.
You can reduce the appearance of post-injection bruising by following all prep instructions, including avoiding antioxidant supplements, such as vitamin E, right before your appointment.
Our team provides you with the aftercare steps you need to take as well. These include applying compresses to reduce swelling after your injection, refraining from touching your face right after your injections, and taking it easy on injection day.
Treatments are quick (about 10 minutes), and you start to see results in just 24-48 hours, but you also need touch-up injections every 3-4 months. With this in mind, schedule your appointment so your holiday plans fall into this window.
