As a solution to a variety of health and cosmetic problems, Southern Dental Care provides patients with high-quality Botox in New Orleans. Many people think of Botox as an anti-aging treatment that gets rid of wrinkles to make people look younger, but Botox does much more. Botulinum toxin, or Botox, is medically used to treat a variety of muscular conditions, chronic headaches, spasms, and even migraines. Botox can help any patient who experiences the following medical and cosmetic problems, including:
- Eye Spasms
- Facial Spasms
- Neck And Shoulder Spasms
- Chronic Migraines
- Crossed Eyes
- Crows Feet
- Overactive Bladder
- Lines Between The Eyebrows
- Excessive Sweating
Unlike other solutions to these problems, Botox has minimal recovery time and injections are done relatively quickly. The procedure is quite popular among patients and over 7 million patients in 2016 alone were provided botulinum toxin type A treatment.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes muscles, by preventing any signals from the nerve cells to reach targeted areas in your body. This leaves the muscles without any ability to contract or wrinkle. The chemical from Botox is injected into humans in very small concentrations, attaching to the receptors in the muscle cells which would otherwise contract or shorten without the chemicals.
Is Botox Dangerous or Expensive?
Yes, Botox chemicals are some of the most poisonous substances known to mankind. Botulinum toxin can result in botulism, which is a severe life threatening disease. While dangerous and costly (most often not covered by insurance), there is a huge demand for Botox in New Orleans. Botox is proven safe, effective, and successful when the dosages and frequencies of treatment are closely watched. Botox is only poisonous when a patient receives the wrong dosage.
What Should I Expect During My Botox Treatment?
Before your first Botox treatment, it’s best to hold off on taking aspirin and any other anti-inflammatory medicine for two weeks. It’s also recommended that patients do not consume any alcohol in the week prior, as well. After your first Botox treatment, expect to wait at least 24-72 hours before you start seeing any results. It generally takes a full three to seven days to see the completed results of Botox. During your treatment, our team will provide you with a stress-free Botox experience. When you arrive to the treatment room, you’ll receive small neurotoxin injections through a small needle as needed. The procedure is fast and will only leave patients with mild discomfort.
