Botox Cosmetic in Lancaster, PA
Facial areas eventually begin to wrinkle from years of smiling, frowning, squinting and excessive muscle movement. With Botox injections, we are able to temporarily relax the underlying muscles and in turn reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Our providers specialize in providing the most natural looking results
What to Expect- The treatment involves injecting Botox right below the skin with very small needles. Most people find it to be pain free with no downtime. You are free to resume your usual activities immediately after your appointment. You will have small pink bumps in the areas of injection for about 5 minutes. With any injectable procedure there is a small risk of bruising, however most patients do not bruise with this treatment. Botox begins to take effect in about 3-5 days and 2 weeks for full results. Results last for about 3 months.
Preparing for Your Appointment- Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment. Avoid alcohol for one to two days before your appointment to reduce the chance of bruising. Avoid Aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Ginseng, and Vitamin E for 10-14 days prior to your appointment to help reduce bruising (unless prescribed by your physician, please do not stop any prescription blood thinners).
Aftercare- Do not exercise strenuously for the day, (exercising before your appointment or the next day is okay). If you are planning to have a facial, laser, microneedling, microdermabrasion etc. schedule it prior to your Botox appointment or 2 weeks after injection. Do not massage the areas, washing your face and doing your usual skincare routine is okay.
Our providers also offer other specialized therapeutic treatments with Botox including masseter muscle treatment (for jawline slimming, teeth grinding, jaw clenching) and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) treatment.
