Reunion Ready - Botox
Botox is an extremely popular method of anti-aging, perhaps because it is both effective and noninvasive. It works by using a series of injections to block nerve cell signals and prevent muscle contraction. And while many people choose to receive Botox only in their faces, it can also be utilized to create a smoother, more youthful-looking neck. This is known as a Nefertiti Neck Lift. Both procedures are a wise choice if you are looking to hide some of the most obvious signs of aging.
Because the success of a procedure depends heavily on the skill and knowledge of your doctor, it is important to select a surgeon who has years of experience. Dr. Garrett Wirth is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has many years of experience with Botox, and several other neurotoxins, and who can help you look as youthful as possible for your reunion. It might even be fun to hear from people that you look as beautiful as you did graduation day!
You may be an ideal candidate for Botox if you have:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Lines or creases in your neck
- Good mental and physical health
- No known allergic type reactions to the neurotoxins
How Does Botox Work?
Smiling, squinting, frowning and other emotions can create unwanted lines on your face from years of movement. Dr. Wirth will work to reverse these signs of time by carefully injecting Botox, or other neurotoxins, into the predetermined areas using an extremely thin needle. The location and severity of your wrinkles determines the amount of injections and units that you may need to achieve the look you desire. For example, lines above your brows may require many injection sites, while crow’s feet may only necessitate one or two, with fewer units injected.
Another appealing aspect of Botox is the lack of downtime post treatment. While some people do experience bruising and mild pain, it typically subsides within the first few hours, to a day or two. You should be able to resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure, but Dr. Wirth asks that you do not do strenuous exercises the day of your injections. However, it is important to note that depending on the treatment plan as determined by you and Dr. Wirth, you may need to have multiple appointments to achieve the look you want for your reunion.
Becoming reunion ready doesn’t stop at your chin. A smoother, more contoured neck is available through a simple, noninvasive surgery known as the Nefertiti Neck Lift. Dr. Wirthwill perform the Nefertiti Neck Lift by injecting Botox down those unsightly vertical bands that run from below the chin to the collar bones. These are muscle bands of the platysma muscle that can be treated with neurotoxins. This can appear to raise and tighten your jawline and rejuvenate your neck as the Botox again blocks nerve transmission and muscle band activity.
As with Botox injections in your face, no downtime is required. You will likely see results in three to six days, or maybe even sooner! To ensure your best results, it may be necessary for you to receive multiple treatments prior to your reunion. Dr. Wirth will work with you to create a plan that will optimally serve you and your aesthetic goals.
Botox, as with other neurotoxins, is not a permanent procedure. Results generally last for three to four months, but if your wrinkles are more severe, you may need more than one treatment. Therefore, it is important that you contact Dr. Wirth as soon as you know when your reunion will be occurring so that you can attain your desired appearance by the time it arrives.
