Receiving BOTOX Cosmetic injections in Oklahoma City is a fast and simple procedure that begins with a one-on-one meeting with Dr. Jayne. Certain medical concerns may preclude you from BOTOX treatment. In such cases, Dr. Jayne can recommend an alternative non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment, such as laser therapy.
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, Dr. Jayne will begin by asking you a number of questions. Most patients looking to eliminate facial wrinkles and lines on the forehead will qualify, but it is an important step to minimize any potentially serious side effects such as an allergic reaction.
During your consultation, Dr. Jayne will ask you to explain your areas of concern. To help him plan your treatment, he will ask you to contract your facial muscles by frowning, smiling, and performing other movements. He will then explain what BOTOX Cosmetic can do to help you reach your cosmetic goals.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatments can be completed in about 10 minutes. A very small needle is used to administer the injections, and most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the procedure. However, Dr. Jayne can provide a cooling cream or numbing agent if you are anxious. He will then carefully apply BOTOX Cosmetic to the pre-determined injection sites.
Most patients are able to return to work and other everyday activities immediately after receiving BOTOX Cosmetic injections. Complications and side effects such as drooping eyelids are uncommon. If they do occur, they are usually mild and should clear up within a few days. To reduce the risk of complications and negative side effects after treatment, do not rub or apply pressure to the injection sites for the first 24 hours.
It may take a few days for you to notice an improvement in your wrinkles or frown lines following BOTOX treatment. The results will continue to improve over the course of the next two weeks. The full effects typically last for approximately three to six months before a touch-up becomes necessary.
