Apollo Medical Associates offers Botox Cosmetic treatment. Botox Cosmetic is an anti-aging treatment that improves fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It works by temporarily relaxing facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as to prevent new lines from forming. A quick 10-minute procedure, Botox is commonly injected on the forehead, the area between the eyebrows, the corners of the eyes, and the sides of the chin.
Botox & Fillers by Apollo Medical Associates
BOTOX® Cosmetic remains the only FDA-approved product for eliminating wrinkles, age lines, and associated cosmetic skin conditions due to aging. Apollo Medical is proud to offer Botox to our Colorado Springs patients who want to eliminate unsightly signs of aging, providing a rejuvenating and youthful appearance with a quick, easy, and safe procedure. Below, we’ll explore a few more reasons why Botox might be the treatment for you.
What is Botox?
Botox reduces or entirely removes skin lines, folds, and wrinkles via a small injection of the active ingredient, also known as botulinum protein. Botox allows the facial muscles to maintain a relaxed state, resulting in a significant reduction in cosmetic signs of aging around the area. The procedure is quick, affordable, and typically pain-free.
Who Should Consider Botox Treatment?
Botox is a safe and effective procedure for any adult wishing to retain or reacquire a vibrant, youthful appearance. While the risk of side effects is low, Botox is not right for everyone; past adverse reactions to Botox or related products, drug allergies, or various medical conditions may rule out Botox as a desirable treatment. If you are interested in Botox Cosmetic, our Colorado Springs team will ensure you are an appropriate candidate for treatment by carefully evaluating your medical history, medications, and past or planned medical procedures.
What is the Procedure Like?
Botox injections at our Colorado Springs office typically take less than 15 minutes. Our experts at Apollo Medical Associates will inject the Botox Cosmetic into the muscles of the areas you wish to improve in appearance, usually no more than a few injections depending on your desired results. As an example, typically five injections into the forehead area are desired for targeting frown lines, or 2-3 injections around each eye for reducing or eliminating crow’s feet. Many patients wish to target multiple areas in an appointment; at Apollo Medical, we can devise a treatment plan custom-tailored for your individual needs. Few patients report pain or discomfort from the procedure, but we can also use a light topical anesthetic to alleviate potential discomfort. Relatively little recovery time is required, making the treatments easy to schedule throughout the day without interrupting normal activity.
How Long Does It Take to Work?
Typically, immediate results begin to appear within 24 to 48 hours, though it may take as long as 30 days for the full effects to appear. Results usually last for 3 to 5 months and fade gradually; it is easy to make another appointment for Botox in Colorado Springs with Apollo Medical Associates if you wish to continue treatment.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles with a remarkably low side effect profile; thousands of individuals enjoy Botox treatments every year, and side effects are typically reported in 1-3% of patients. The most commonly reported side effects after Botox treatment include swelling, discomfort or minor bleeding at the treatment site, fatigue, headache, or dry mouth. Most side effects, if they appear, are encountered shortly after the procedure and short-lasting. While the risk of major adverse effects is rare, more serious side effects have been reported. Be sure to contact us immediately if you have trouble speaking, catching your breath, eating, drinking, or experience impaired vision, fatigue, or weakness. Allergic reactions or drug interactions may occur; be sure to discuss your medical history with your provider to ensure Botox is appropriate for you. Upon determining your eligibility for Botox our Colorado Springs team at Apollo Medical Associates will develop the proper treatment plan and get you started on the way to aesthetic restoration.
