With Dr. Peter J. Damico
The hands of time aren’t always kind. Besides potions and serums and maybe makeup, what else can you do to turn back the clock?
You’ve surely heard of Botox, but perhaps you have your reservations. We’re here to explain everything you want to know about this cosmetic service, including what it is, the side effects, and what kinds of results to expect.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an injection that freezes the facial muscles in place for a limited time. When facial muscles are in that state, they don’t move, which reduces the appearance of the wrinkles you already have and prevents the development of new ones.
The technical name for Botox is Clostridium botulinium, a bacterium. Botox can reduce the appearance of smoker’s lines, neck skin bands, chin dimpling, bunny lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and other facial wrinkles. It’s also sometimes used for excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, lazy eye or strabismus, and excessive blinking or blepharospasm.
Who Is Dr. Peter J. Damico?
Dr. Peter J. Damico is a licensed cosmetic doctor who specializes in procedures like Botox. He has more than 30 years of experience doing this treatment as well as laser hair removal. If you’re interested in getting Botox done at Expressive Beauty, you will have a consultation with Dr. Damico.
What Results Can You Expect?
Once you receive the injections, do not expect immediate results. In as little as one or two weeks, you should notice the injected lines and wrinkles around your face become less apparent. That said, Botox doesn’t necessarily make much of a difference for deep wrinkles.
Botox is not a one-and-done procedure. If you only ever receive the injections once, you will only get to enjoy a younger-looking face for several months. Many patients experience results for up to four months, and some have reported results for up to six months.
At that time, you must return to your doctor for another set of injections.
Are There Any Side Effects?
In rare cases, patients have developed botulism, but if you visit a trusted medical facility for your Botox injections, you shouldn’t have to worry about this. In other rare cases, minor facial paralysis may occur, including mouth and eyelid drooping.
Otherwise, some patients have reported short-term headaches, facial aches, and bruises.
