Botox Kansas City

As you age, it is normal for lines and wrinkles to appear on your face. Thankfully, that does not mean you have to live with it. Your facial skin becomes less elastic as you age and while you might not have cared much when you were younger, the elasticity of your skin is what helped keep it smooth and wrinkle-free. 

Botox treatment is one way to turn back the clock for a smooth, wrinkle-free face yet again. While this is not a permanent solution, it is a fairly long-lasting one and can take you back to the good old days when you looked younger and did not have to worry about wrinkles or marks.

When done by a professional nurse, Botox is safe and will not cause your skin or body harm. However, it is crucial that it is done by a certified professional like us.

Our licensed registered nurses know all about botox treatment from how to work with patients to achieve the results they want to safely providing botox injections.

With our team of certified and experienced nurses, you will receive the best care and safe, professional injections. You will work closely with your nurse before the treatment and after when you receive your care instructions. This ensures the process goes smoothly and you get the best results. With our expertise, you will leave our office confident in your results and wrinkle-free skin. We also have botox specials in Kansas City, call for details. 

What is Botox?

Many people are familiar with the word botox, but they may not actually understand what it is and just how it is used. 

Botox injections are created using botulinum toxin (Bo-tox), a neuromodulator that freezes facial muscles in the position they’re in when injected. By freezing your facial muscles, Botox prevents wrinkles from forming or growing as you continue to make facial expressions and go about your day.

Botox injections also work to smooth skin which is what helps create a smooth, wrinkle-free and more youthful appearance. It does not take long for the botox injections to kick in and give you an ageless and youthful appearance and the injection process itself takes less than half an hour, making botox a very quick method for treating wrinkles and lines. 

When undergoing botox treatment, you will not need to arrange to take time off work or spend the rest of your day recovering. As botox is a noninvasive procedure with no downtime required, you can easily schedule an appointment during your lunch break or on your way to pick up the kids from school or daycare.

Botox can be used to hide wrinkles anywhere on your face: around your eyes or lips, on your forehead, or between your brows. You can get botox injections for one place in particular or wherever wrinkles appear. It all depends on your personal preferences and goals.

How Does Botox Work For Facial Wrinkles and Frown Lines?

If you have never had a botox injection before and you’re considering it, you might be wondering how it works and what the treatment process is like. While some of the specifics depend on your personal treatment plan and desired results, there are some basics that remain the same.

The muscles in your face cause wrinkles and lines and, as you make facial expressions, these wrinkles and lines grow. When Botox injections are used, the injected toxin freezes these muscles and prevents them from contracting when you move your face. In turn, the muscles are able to relax instead of contracting with every facial movement you make, and, as a result, wrinkles and lines have the chance to smooth out and seemingly disappear.

When it comes to smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, you can expect to see results fairly soon. While fine lines may be almost immediately removed, smoothing out wrinkles will take a little longer.

Most of the time, you’ll see results within 2-4 days of your treatment. This slight delay is because wrinkles lie deeper than fine lines, not because the treatment was done incorrectly or is inefficient. Just give your skin some time to adjust. 

The two most common areas people choose for botox are the crow’s feet area beside the eye and severe frown lines. 

To smooth out the crow’s feet area, the nurse injects the Botox into the muscle that sits just to the side of your eye: the orbicularis oculi. This is the muscle that contracts as you smile and forms the lines that many people are familiar with. After repeating the process on both sides, the injection is complete!

For the frown line areas, a similar process is followed. There are a couple of different muscles that form frown lines, so the nurse will inject each one with the botox. Once finished, the muscles will no longer contract or move when you frown and the wrinkles on your forehead will smooth out temporarily.

Using the same methods of injecting specific muscles with the Botox, nurses can smooth out forehead lines, lip lines, bunny lines on your nose, necklines, cleavage lines, and dimpled chins. Botox can also be used to treat excessive underarm or palm sweating, eyelid spasms, and readjust the shape of a square jaw for whatever reason.

Who Are Botox Injections For?

Unfortunately, Botox is not for everyone. There are a few requirements you must meet in order to undergo a botox procedure, but the good news is that they aren’t too difficult to meet.

Botox works for both men and women who want to smooth out wrinkles and lines on their faces and works best for those between the ages of 18 and 65. If you meet those requirements, then the good news is that you’re probably a great candidate for botox. Here are a few other things to keep in mind:

You must be in good physical health. While Botox cosmetic treatments may not be an extremely draining or exhausting procedure, it is still crucial that you are healthy in order to ensure the treatment goes well and your body doesn’t reject the botox. If you have certain skin conditions, you may not be able to undergo botox injections, so be sure to speak with your doctor before scheduling the appointment.

In order for Botox to be effective, the wrinkles and lines you’re treating need to be dynamic and not static.

Static wrinkles are those that appear on your face even when you are not making a facial expression of any sort. Since static wrinkles are caused by a loss of volume and not the contracting of a muscle, botox will not be able to treat them.

Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear when you make a certain facial expression. Crow’s feet and frown lines are good examples of this. They appear only when your face moves and when certain muscles around your face contract. Dynamic wrinkles are treatable through botox.

Your doctor can help you know whether you have dynamic or static wrinkles before your procedure. This way, you can be sure that the treatment you choose will be effective at smoothing out your wrinkles.

If you are not sure you meet all the requirements for a Botox injection, speaking with a doctor can help clear up any confusion you have. Your doctor can tell you if Botox will be a good treatment plan for your goals and cosmetic concerns and if not, they may have a different treatment that may work better.

Benefits of Botox Treatment

There are several benefits of botox that some people may not be familiar with aside from the smoothing out of wrinkles. In addition to that, here are a few other benefits of Botox:

1. Enhance Natural Beauty

As an anti-aging and anti-wrinkle treatment, botox helps enhance your natural beauty and help you look younger. Botox is a fairly quick and easy way to eliminate prominent wrinkles that may otherwise be reducing your self-confidence.

2. Improve Health

Botox may be used to help treat some health conditions and alleviate pain for some people. Those who suffer from muscle pain, TMJ in particular, may use botox to help relax their muscles and alleviate their pain. Botox injections may also be used to treat migraines, excessive sweating in either the underarm area or the palms, urinary incontinence, or overactive bladder problems.

3. Noninvasive Procedure

As mentioned above, Botox is a noninvasive procedure. This makes it a viable option for those who cannot take time off work for recovery or undergo a more invasive procedure. Simply schedule in your Botox cosmetic treatment and go about your normal routine.

4. Inexpensive

Compared to many other medical procedures and treatments, Botox injections are relatively inexpensive. While you will have to undergo the procedure several times in order to keep your wrinkles at bay, the procedure itself is much more affordable, making it possible for those who cannot afford to splurge on a more expensive, luxury treatment.

Botox is also very budget-friendly as you only pay per unit used. If you cannot afford that much, you can reduce your treatment plan to include only as much as you can afford.

5. Lasting Results

While botox will not last forever, it does last quite a while. Most Botox injections last around 3 months and results appear within just a few days, making the treatment effective and fairly long-lasting. If you choose not to undergo further treatment, you won’t suffer any side effects or negative impacts, either.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Since 2002, Votox injections have been approved by the FDA, though the treatment has been used to treat certain conditions such as eyelid spasms since the 1980s. Over time, the treatment has only become safer and millions of people choose to undergo Botox treatments every year.

The needles used to inject botox are microscopic, so you will not feel anything more than a small pinch. When doctors administer tiny injections in Botox, the very small needle does not need to go too deep into your skin. This makes the Botox cosmetic treatment much less painful than other procedures involving needles that do penetrate your skin deeper.

You can expect to feel a little discomfort and slight pinches during the treatment. In some cases, a numbing cream or agent may be applied to the treatment area to help the treatment go as smoothly and as pain-free as possible.

Botox cosmetic treatment is not without potential side effects, but none of them are major. You may experience swelling, bruising, itching, tenderness, or redness around the treatment area. While these side effects are minor and should cause no worry, they can be uncomfortable. They should go away within a few days but if not, reach out to your doctor.

If you experience any major side effects such as vision complications, drooping eyelids, or chest pain, contact your doctor immediately.

The cost of your treatment will depend on how extensive you want it to be and where you have the procedure done. You may pay less if you want to use lesser Botox. Talk with your doctor to receive a more personalized and accurate quote.

Depending on your treatment plan, you may need fewer units of Botox. In general, forehead frown lines will use between 8 to 20 units. For crows’ feet, the average is between 15-20 units of botox. Of course, your doctor will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate as they will be personally familiar with your desired treatment.

I have never had anyone put an IV in that fast and it was completely painless. I received the energy infusion after celebrating the Chief's win last weekend. Obviously, I had a horrible hangover and this was exactly what I needed. Alyson offers mobile services so she came right to my house and was able to fix my wife and I right up!
