Your face is the only part of your body where the muscles originate on the bone or fascia of the face and attach directly onto the skin. Over time, wrinkles and fine lines start to appear on your skin due to improper skin care regime, smoking, pollution, genetics, inadequate nutrition, and sun damage. Fine lines and wrinkles are signs that your skin is aging and needs more attention. Though they are unavoidable, you can delay their appearance with a proper skin care regime and good nutrition. As for wrinkles and fine lines that are already on the face, the services our Botox Brentwood team provides are the solution.

WHAT IS BOTOX?

Botox is an injection that uses various forms of botulinum toxin to paralyze muscle activity temporarily. There are eight types of botulinum toxin. Botox is a chemical prescription that is derived from botulinum toxin type A and type B. Botox was approved by the FDA in 2002.

Botox injections temporarily paralyze your muscle activity by releasing neurotoxins which inhibit your nerves from communicating with your muscle. They can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing your facial muscles. Botox injections can reduce the frown lines between your eyebrows as well as your forehead furrows. The lines that fan out from the corners of your eyes, also called crow’s feet, can be reduced with Botox injections as well.

BOTOX TREATMENT AT ALLERGY AND SKIN SPA

Dr. Kianoush Shakib is a skilled doctor who can help you determine if Botox best suits your needs and health. He will start by guiding you through the procedure and explain how it is done. You will be informed of how much Botox you are getting and in which areas. Depending on your health condition, he may suggest numbing the treatment area to decrease the amount of pain associated with the procedure.

During your consultation, Dr. Shakib will ask you a series of questions associated with your health and any medicine you take. He will advise you to stop using blood thinners several days before the procedure to reduce the risk of bruising and bleeding. During the procedure, Dr. Shakib will mark the areas on your face to be treated. He will then use a fine microneedle to inject the Botox directly into your facial muscle. He will also use ice and pressure on the treated area to avoid swelling.

Dr. Shakib will guide you through post procedure care. You will be asked:

  • Not to lie down for more than four hours after treatment
  • Not to rub the treated area
  • Not to exercise or involve in strenuous activities for 24 hours post procedure
  • Not to use blood thinners

ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS TREATED WITH BOTOX

If you suffer from a gummy smile, an excessive exposure of the gums when you smile, you may feel inhibited or uncomfortable in social situations. A short upper lip, small teeth, or excessive gum tissue can all lead to a gummy smile. At Allergy and Skin Spa, Botox has been successfully used as a minimally invasive treatment for a gummy smile. Through only a few injections, your visible gum line can be softened, reducing the visibility of a gummy smile.

Botox injections have been successfully used as an alternative treatment for TMJ disorders, jaw pain and to relieve jaw tension. A simple injection into the facial muscles can relieve TMJ discomfort and jaw pain, bringing you freedom from your pain and discomfort. Chronic migraine sufferers can also benefit from Botox treatments. During this treatment, injections are made around the pain fibers connected to headaches. The injections help to block the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission thereby helping to bring relief to those who suffer from chronic migraines.

Excessive sweating, medically known as Hyperhidrosis, is a common disorder suffered by many. This can lead to discomfort both physically and emotionally and cause one to feel embarrassed due to unsightly stains on clothes or wet palms when greeting others. If you suffer from this condition, treatment with Botox may be a suitable option for you.

The FDA has approved the use of Botox for patients who sweat excessively from their underarms. The injections help to block the nerves that lead to the activation of the sweat glands. Many patients have reported Botox being extremely effective in treating excessive sweating from the armpits. Contact Allergy and Skin Spa if you would like to find out your candidacy for some of the most successful Botox Brentwood has to offer.
