Botox Cosmetic is an injectable neurotoxin using botulinum toxin type A to paralyze muscles temporarily. Botox is used by being injected into the masseter muscles at the back of your jaw. Injecting Botox into the masseter muscles helps reduce the activity of these muscles. Stopping the action of these muscles can have a spectacular effect on facial contour.
Using Botox to slim your face is quite simple. Your professional palpate the muscles, locates the muscles, and injects a sequence of two or three injections to each side of your lower face. The procedure takes just a few minutes, and the pain level is low. Most patients do not notice any discomfort. If you need, however, a numbing cream is available.
Recovery time is minimal, and the procedure is quick in and out of the clinic. After the procedure, it is advised that you avoid massaging the injected area, laying down, exercising, drinking alcohol, or taking pain relievers. It takes about two to five days to start working, and full slimming results are seen in a few weeks. The treatment wears off in about four months, so if you want to maintain a slimmer appearance, you need to seek treatments several times a year.
The procedure is safe, non-invasive, and has great results. Although it is not FDA-approved for this procedure, it has been clinically proven to be a viable treatment for facial slimming.
Talk to your provider about the possibility of facial slimming using Botox. Discuss the costs, side effects, and results. You will be pleasantly surprised. Facial slimming will create a more sophisticated facial appearance for you.
