By Van O'Dell, DDS on March 22, 2018
While plastic surgeons can achieve great anti-aging results through facial cosmetic surgery, BOTOX® injections have been rising in popularity. Every year, more people are looking to this non-surgical options for wrinkle reduction and removal to help them look years younger. The team at our North Little Rock, AR practice is proud to offer BOTOX® treatment and other cosmetic injections that fight the signs of aging.
BOTOX® injections have a number of advantages over traditional plastic surgery. Let’s take a moment to consider some of the key benefits of undergoing BOTOX® treatment.
A Non-Surgical Option for Wrinkle Reduction
BOTOX® injections allow people to experience all of the benefits of cosmetic surgery without having to undergo a surgical procedure. That means there’s no scarring involved at all, and patients can smooth out wrinkles and look years younger. The fact that patients can avoid the risks of surgery is what makes BOTOX® injections so initially appealing.
Fast and Simple Treatment
BOTOX® injections can be administered quick and easy. In fact, some patients are able to stop by the practice for a quick BOTOX® cosmetic treatment during their lunch hour. Since BOTOX® injections are non-surgical, it’s back to the office with an enhanced facial appearance. How easy and convenient.
No Downtime After BOTOX® Injections
As you may have guess from the last two benefits, there is no downtime after undergoing BOTOX® injection therapy. Patients may be asked to avoid strenuous physical activities and direct sun exposure for a day or two, but otherwise, the patient’s life is not impacted or interrupted in any significant way.
BOTOX® treatment means no time off from work, and no major change to your usual leisure activities either.
Low Risk of Complications
Thanks to the nature of BOTOX® injection therapy, there is a very low risk of complications from treatment. During the consultation process, your cosmetic surgeon can check your medical history and run a few quick checks to ensure you will not have an allergic or adverse reaction to a BOTOX® injection.
More Affordable Than Cosmetic Surgery
Since there’s no need for hours-long surgery, an anesthesiologist, or extensive follow-up care, the cost of BOTOX® injections is far lower than the cost of plastic surgery. This is important to consider if you’d like to look younger but are on a bit of a budget.
Great Results That Last for Months
While BOTOX® injection results are not permanent, they will last for around six months. This is great for a temporary enhancement of your appearance. If you are not satisfied with the results of BOTOX® therapy, they will naturally wear off and your face will return to its natural appearance.
Easy to Repeat BOTOX® Injections
If you do like what BOTOX® injections can achieve, however, you can easily undergo a repeat treatment. These procedures prolong the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX® cosmetic, allowing you to remain wrinkle-free and continue looking years younger.
