Botox is a neurotoxin-based medication available only by prescription. It temporarily paralyzes muscle activity in the face to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Injections of Botox treat moderate to severe wrinkles across your brow line and crow’s feet, the crinkles around your eyes.
Dr. Leafblad offers Botox therapy in-office to freshen and revitalize your natural features so that your skin looks younger and smoother.
You could be a candidate for Botox therapy if you’re unhappy with your appearance because of facial lines and wrinkles but aren’t ready for cosmetic surgery.
The Halo MD team offers complete skin and health evaluations to ensure that you’re healthy enough for treatment. They also discuss your treatment goals to determine if Botox injections can help you achieve your desired results.
In general, your skin should be healthy and free of infection. Many people tolerate Botox injections well, but Dr. Leafblad can apply a topical numbing cream before your injections to increase your comfort.
If you’re not a candidate for Botox therapy, the team can recommend other skin care procedures, like microdermabrasion or chemical peels, to address common, age-related skin flaws.
The Halo MD team offers Botox therapy in a comfortable office environment and prioritizes your health, safety, and comfort throughout your procedure.
Dr. Leafblad follows a customized treatment plan to inject precise amounts of Botox into areas of your face. Treatment typically involves several injections to achieve your desired results.
You might have some mild swelling, bruising, and redness at the injection sites, but you can expect these side effects to go away on their own within a few days. You can go home after your treatment is done. The team provides additional guidance to care for your skin after Botox therapy.
Many people see a noticeable difference in their appearance immediately after treatment. But it can take up to 30 days before you see the maximum benefit of Botox therapy.
As the treated muscles in your face begin to relax, your skin smooths out, and wrinkles and fine lines disappear. Because Dr. Leafblad uses precise amounts of Botox in the targeted areas, your results will look and feel natural.
Typically, Botox injections can provide results that last for four months or longer. The team offers maintenance injections to help you retain your younger-looking, smoother skin.
