Do you have facial wrinkles that deepen when you move your face? Have you tried seemingly every anti-wrinkle cream on the market without seeing any results? If so, you may be a good candidate for Botox Little Rock injections at the office of Mimi Lee, MD in Little Rock, AR. If you’re on the fence about getting anti-aging injections, keep reading to learn more about this treatment, including how quickly it works and what to expect during the treatment process.
Does Botox Little Rock Work Immediately?
Yes, Botox Little Rock starts working immediately. However, you will not be able to see your desired results right away. While individual results vary, you should expect to see the results of your injections after four days. In some cases, the results of this treatment even become apparent after just two or three days.
Several factors affect how quickly you should expect to see your treatment results. For example, your results may appear faster if you receive a relatively large dose of medication. Also, you can expect your results to appear a little faster if you have only mild or moderate concerns. The less tension there is to be released, the faster all of the tension will be released.
What Can I Do To See My Results Faster?
If you’re anxious to see your results as quickly as possible, you should exercise your treatment muscles 120 times per day. For instance, you should scrunch and relax your nose 40 times after treatment for nasolabial folds. Then, after a break, you should repeat the exercise. Finally, you should scrunch and relax your nose 40 more times before you go to bed for the night.
Massaging the treatment area very gently will also help the medication settle in quickly and provide faster results. Specifically, you should massage the treatment area for five minutes at a time. You may want to set five alarms on your phone per day and set a five-minute timer so you remember to massage the treatment area and you don’t massage it for too long.
What Should I Expect During My Treatment Session?
You should expect your treatment session to be pain-free and incredibly convenient. The length of your treatment session depends on the number of areas you are treating, the size of the areas you are treating, and the severity of your concerns. The more severe your concerns are, the more injections you will need to receive to get an adequate dose. However, you can feel confident that you will be able to fit your appointment into your lunch break.
We use a tiny needle to administer the botulinum toxin into the treatment area or areas, so you shouldn’t expect to feel any pain at all. If needles make you feel uneasy, let us know during your initial consultation. We are more than happy to apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before the injections are administered so you don’t feel anything. Just know that this will add a little time to your appointment.
How Many Injections Will I Receive?
The number of injections you will receive depends primarily on the number of concerns you have and the severity of your concerns. Usually, once we verify your skin is not irritated and cleanse it thoroughly, we mark five strategic injection locations per area of concern.
Therefore, you can expect to receive at least five injections per area of concern. However, you may need more than one injection in each location depending on the dose you need. During your initial evaluation, we will evaluate the severity of your concerns and advise you on how many injections you will need and how long your session will take.
What Should I Expect After My Treatment Session?
Once your injection session is complete, you are free to return to work. However, there are some restrictions you will need to adhere to. For example, you must avoid increasing your blood pressure too much, so you won’t be able to do any heavy lifting for a while after your session. It is also important that you do not suffer from any sun damage, so stay out of the sun if you can. If you can’t make sure you wear sunscreen and reapply it every four hours.
Another important restriction you should be aware of is that you can only sleep on your back from the time the medication is administered until you start to see your results. If you sleep on your side or stomach, too much pressure may be applied to the treatment area, and your results may be affected. Also, to prevent too much pressure from being applied to your treatment area, do not apply cosmetics after your treatment.
