Have you noticed that you are looking older when you glance at yourself in the mirror? If you are tired of the way that you look, you may be able to benefit from BOTOX® treatments with Dr. Banis in Louisville. Dr. Banis provides his treatments in a private and safe environment where you will feel completely at ease and will have plenty of time to ask him any questions that you may have. Before you get started, you may want to find out more about BOTOX®, how it works, what you can expect at your treatment and how often you will need follow-up treatments.
BOTOX® is basically a purified protein solution that relaxes the facial muscles. However, there is no need to worry that this treatment is unsafe for your skin. Keep in mind that we only use very small dosages and always start with the smallest possible dosage that will work for you. Our goal is to help you look completely natural while removing those irritating fine lines and wrinkles from your skin.
When we inject BOTOX® beneath your skin, it relaxes the tiny underlying muscles by decreasing signals from the nerves within the muscles to the brain. When the muscles can no longer contract, they cannot wrinkle the skin on top of them. This helps your skin appear smooth even when you are making facial expressions. BOTOX® is an appropriate treatment for expression lines or dynamic wrinkles, but it does not work well on static lines and wrinkles that have already set into the skin.
The results of a single BOTOX® treatment can last for three to six months. With long-term usage, you may notice that a treatment lasts even longer. Some of our clients who have been coming to us for years have noticed that they can go for six to eight months or longer between treatments.
BOTOX® treatments at our office in Louisville are quite simple. It all starts with a consultation. Following your appointment, you’ll immediately be able to return to your normal daily activities. You will not need to worry about any downtime, and you will even be able to go back to work.
