BOTOX® Cosmetic

People are always looking for ways to smooth out wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging. In today’s world, you don’t need to deal with long and painful recovery times to do this. Treatments such as BOTOX® can help people achieve long-lasting facial rejuvenation with a process that can be completed in a matter of minutes. Dr. Schneider can administer BOTOX® in Joliet and give you a more youthful appearance by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles in your face.


The BOTOX® Treatment Process

The BOTOX® cosmetic procedure has become one of the most popular and frequently performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures of the last decade. Not only can a BOTOX® treatment be completed quickly and easily, but it provides very natural-looking results. BOTOX® utilizes a highly purified form of botulinum toxin type-A, which temporarily prevents facial muscles from contracting in the treatment areas. This in turn prevents the appearance of wrinkles, making your skin look more youthful again.

BOTOX® is injected with a fine needle that causes little discomfort to help firm the problem areas. In all, the procedure can be completed in under ten minutes. Patients may see some light swelling and bruising around the injection sites after the procedure is performed, but these usually fade after a few hours. Other side effects are rare and can include dry mouth, fatigue, neck pain and headaches. Some patients may also be allergic to the botulinum toxin and may experience wheezing, itching, redness, or other symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Results should be apparent 3-4 days after the treatment. The effects of a BOTOX® treatment usually last between 4-6 months, although they can be maintained for longer periods of time with additional treatments.
