Board-certified surgeon Dr. Sang W. Kim of the Natural Face™ Clinics feature Botox® treatments for patients residing in Ithaca, NY.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a way of restoring a youthful appearance to the skin by injecting the filler into the dermis with a very fine needle. Its main purpose is to minimize the appearance of fine lines, as well as wrinkles that accumulate during the aging process. Another name for Botox® is Botulinum toxin, which is produced from a refined bacterium. It works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles, which results in the skin developing a smooth, firm and youthful appearance. This does wonders for a patient’s self-esteem. It is also used for migraine headaches and bladder issues in women.
Botox® has gained and maintained its popularity because patients have reported that the treatment has successfully delivered the following results:
- Temporarily smooths out creases, wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by aging.
- Gives skin that youthful, radiant glow.
- Restores self-esteem damaged by premature aging.
- Controls the frequency and the intensity of migraine headaches.
- Decreases the production of underarm perspiration.
- Controls overactive bladder symptoms for people with bladder control issues.
What to Expect when Botox® is Administered?
Your administering physician will inject the area using a thin, fine-gauge needle. The number of creases, fine lines, and wrinkles is assessed so that the number of injections can be determined. If they are severe, then more injections may be needed. You may want to return for ongoing treatments after the initial treatment has lost its effect. Normally, treatment will take place in our office and will last anywhere between 4 to 6 months. The best and most effective part about Botox® is that, over time, fewer and fewer treatments will be needed because the muscles will become trained to stay in place.
