Aftercare & Expected Results
A few hours after the procedure, you should make facial expressions to help the BOTOX enter the muscles treated and avoid massaging or rubbing the treated area. It would be best to avoid strenuous exercise and long periods of bending over whether exercising or other activity.
Most Santa Barbara patients will see the treatment results as quickly as a few days after the BOTOX injections, but it may require seven to ten days to enjoy the full effect. You will enjoy reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the treated zone, with smoothed wrinkles and creases and a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Results typically last for a few months before the BOTOX breaks down, and maintenance injections are needed to maintain the smooth, younger-looking skin. Patients usually return for regular treatments about two to four times per year.
Best Candidates for BOTOX in Santa Barbara
Men and women both benefit from BOTOX treatments. The versatile formula is also proven safe on all skin types and textures. The smoothing effect can provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and the treatments, when correctly administered, leave you looking younger and more vital, rather than having an unpleasant “worked on” look.
Santa Barbara patients are typically seeking non-surgical treatment for wrinkles and understand that BOTOX results are temporary. Virtually anyone over the age of 18 who is frustrated with the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines can enjoy the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX treatments.
