Are botox injections, for wrinkle reduction, in the face, considered risky

Facial wrinkles are common among both men and women as a natural occurrence of the aging process. These folds and furrows cause the skin to form lines between the facial muscles. With botox, these facial muscles can significantly help put out the tension of muscles, causing a gentle smoothing out of the skin. BOTOX® injectable treatments are safe and protective treatments without invasive instruments and surgical correction.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is an injectable treatment proven to relax the facial muscles. It has a lasting result of six months under optimal treatment. Its origin came from a botulinum molecule and was extended to administer to the different facial muscles. This process blocks the chemical signals from reaching the nerves. A subtle and refreshing appearance is evident after the treatment due to the temporary relaxation of the facial muscle.

Getting a BOTOX® is relatively safe!

Getting a botox is not problematic for any form of risk. It is performed by an experienced professional marking it as a safe procedure for wrinkle production in the face. In some cases, limited possible side effects may occur as a part of the process. These are unlikely to happen, but here is a list including:

  • Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site
  • Headache or flu-like symptoms
  • Droopy eyelid or cockeyed eyebrows
  • Crooked smile or drooling
  • Eye dryness or excessive tearing

 BOTOX® nourishes your facial skin with the following benefits:

  • Convenient and fast treatment sessions for busy clients
  • Immediate visible results in just a few days
  • Quick, convenient treatment sessions for busy patients
  • Visible results in just a few days after injection

BOTOX® is a safe and effective treatment

Since it was administered by a medical professional, getting a BOTOX® offers the best results everyone is looking for. All procedures come with assessing your current health condition, medical history, and other variables to ensure that this injectable treatment is entirely safe.

A safe route in Botox®

All injectables offered in Nuance Aesthetics are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are found beneficial in the long run. Only an experienced healthcare professional will examine you to make an individualized plan to treat the facial wrinkles around your face. If any complication occurs, they only range as minimal complications and can quickly treat them once any form of complications appears.

The treatment session is designed specifically for every individual to make sure that it can address the need of different skin types. Since not all wrinkles are the same, some patients’ treatment sessions may vary from one session to more to achieve the desired results.

Wrinkle Reduction for a more relaxed skin rejuvenation

Nuance Aesthetics provides a more incredible avenue to bring out a non-surgical, long-lasting injectable available in the market, including BOTOX® for facial wrinkle relaxation.

In fact, BOTOX® can treat numerous facial wrinkles and resounds that it can surely smooth out facial wrinkles and fine lines. You can have different types of facial wrinkles caused by various factors, resulting in dynamic or static wrinkles.

Dynamic Wrinkles: These wrinkles are most likely to form by your different facial movements when you laugh, smile, concentrate, etc. These usual crow’s feet surround the eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines located at the eyebrows.

 BOTOX® can primarily treat and reduce these dynamic wrinkles using a neuromodulator made of botulinum toxin. It eventually temporarily paralyzes the muscle activity causing the nerves to be blocked from communicating with the targeted facial muscles, thus reducing the appearance of the wrinkles.

Static WrinklesThese are evident in the aging process of an individual, causing a loss of collagen and elastin in your skin. Elastin and collagen are substances that are primarily responsible for the skin’s tautness, elasticity, hydration, supple, and smooth texture. Due to repeated sun exposure, environmental pollutants that remove your skin’s naturally occurring collagen and elastin, decreased collagen production becomes more prominent.

BOTOX® can reduce the appearance of static facial wrinkles but not as entirely as dynamic wrinkles. It can be combined with other medical aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers to address all of your concerns.

BOTOX®: A popular cosmetic enhancement procedure!

Getting a BOTOX® is the simplest and most reasonable way of treating wrinkles and fine lines on your face. It can give a youthful look as it is administered into the facial muscles and as a means to delay the aging process.

Dr. Jackson Rhudy is a board-certified physician who has been practicing in Salt Lake since 1974. After an initial career in emergency medicine, he developed an interest in the new technologies emerging in the field of aesthetics utilizing non-surgical techniques such as lasers, Botox, and injectable fillers. He sought training from leading experts in the aesthetic field at multiple locations in the US and Europe and in 2000 he founded an aesthetic practice called Light Touch Laser Skin Care Center. It rapidly became a leading aesthetic practice in the Salt Lake City area. In 2010, he sold the practice and focused on his other endeavor, Optimum Clinical Research– a private research site that performs clinical trials on new pharmaceutical drugs. But continuing demand from former aesthetic patients led to the formation of a new aesthetic practice in July 2015. Reuniting with a former colleague, Jill Miller, they started Nuance Aesthetics—a practice devoted to providing excellence in the field of non-surgical aesthetics by offering experience and expertise with the utmost integrity. Dr. Rhudy maintains his board certification in emergency medicine and is the only physician in Salt Lake City who is board certified in laser surgery.

When Dr Rhudy isn’t in the office, he loves riding his bike up City Creek. He has always had a passion for learning and growing in the medical field which is why he spends a lot of free time researching the latest treatments and technology that keeps Nuance ahead of the curve.
