The Benefits of Botox Therapy
posted: Aug. 02, 2019.
Though many consider Botox for cosmetic enhancement, it is often used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and is sufficient for reducing excessive sweating or eliminating persistent perspiration. Botox is used on the hands, soles of the feet, face, and scalp in these cases. In Indianapolis, IN, Dr. Sonya F. Campbell Johnson, performs this safe and effective therapy with immediate results and no downtime for you.
Botox injections block specific chemical signals from nerves. These are the signals that cause muscles to contract. Once treated, the effects may take 3-7 days to appear noticeable and results can last from three to six months. Often, repeated sessions can lead to longer-lasting results. Dr. Sonya F. Campbell Johnson, in Indianapolis, IN, will ensure that you are comfortable during every step of the way from beginning to end.
How Is Botox Performed?
Depending on the number of injections needed, the procedure can last anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes. For Botox aftercare, you will need to avoid rubbing your face and should not apply significant pressure for roughly 24 hours. Your doctor may recommend that you exercise your injected muscles at least one hour after treatment.
