Benefits of Botox

Benefits of Botox

Impressive strides have been made in anti-aging treatments over the last couple of decades, but one of the most impactful was the development of Botox® treatments for freezing wrinkles, stopping them in their tracks, and beautifully freshening your face.

The irony about Botox is that it’s made from the bacterial toxin botulinum toxin type A, the same toxin that causes a serious type of food poisoning. Thankfully, its harmful effects were transformed into major anti-aging benefits with the development of Botox.

Dr. Pamela Kimbrough’s goal is to offer services and care at Life’s Cycle, with offices in Ardmore and Norman, Oklahoma, that support your physical health and emotional well-being and self-esteem. Aesthetic treatments have proved to boost the confidence of many patients, and who doesn’t want to look as good as they can?

How Botox works

The purified neurotoxins in Botox are administered via injection, and for a period of months, they relax the muscles in your face whose repetitive movements create creases and wrinkles, like the vertical worry lines that appear between your eyebrows, crow’s feet around your eyes, and forehead lines. 

Since your muscles can’t move after treatment, the skin smoothes, and you appear rejuvenated. Not only is Botox where injectables started, but it also remains the most popular cosmetic injectable, even today. 

Botox offers many pluses for patients

We adopted Botox treatments because we saw how many advantages they offer you. These include:

1. Ease of treatment

You can come in for a Botox treatment, and Jo Fuller, APRN-CNP completes it in just minutes. Then you’re out of here, free to go back to work or return to whatever you were doing. 

Our patients who receive Botox treatments often praise the fact that they’re not spending precious hours in our office, and are done with a treatment lickety-split.

2. Fast results that endure

Many patients notice the positive results of their Botox treatment within one to two days  and see the full benefits of treatment about 30 days after treatment. Your results last, too, for up to four months. 

3. Botox as a preventive

Botox is not just for the middle-aged patient! More and more men and women in their 20s and 30s are getting treated so they can stop wrinkles before they start. 

4. The proof is in the pudding … er, Botox

Botox remains so impressive at smoothing your skin, refreshing your appearance, and zapping all types of lines, from the ones we mentioned earlier to smoker’s lines around your lips and those marionette lines that extend from the corners of your mouth down toward your jaw. 

The beauty of Botox is the results — but you never look overdone or unnatural. And after your treatment, we offer a range of top-of-the-line skin products that amplify and preserve your treatment results.
