Your face tells your life’s own unique story and experiences. From a smile to a frown, squinting to read small writing, and so much more, life’s motions and emotions can leave their mark on your face. Natural aging and a lifetime of voluntary and involuntary facial muscle actions contribute to the formation of wrinkles, creases, and lines that can make you look angry, tired, or older than you feel. Our LMG Cosmetics provider, Amanda Grippo, is a renowned Registered Nurse Practioner and injection expert specializing in Botox treatments in Scranton, PA.
Also known as “Botulinum toxin,” Botox is a quick and efficient solution for treating fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment smooths the face to create a more relaxed appearance. Botox essentially gives your facial muscles a break and reduces their ability to contract, as well as limits the full extent of what those muscles are capable of expressing. Beyond cosmetic purposes, Botox is an amazing treatment for a handful of other medical concerns like TMJ, excessive sweating, and much more.
Botox treats a wide variety of concerns ranging from both medical to cosmetic. Some of the most sought after treatments include:
While there are a few factors that cause the length of Botox’s effectiveness to vary from patient to patient, most clients can expect to experience an average of three to five months of results and relief. In order to enjoy year-round benefits from your Botox treatments, we recommend scheduling regular treatments.
A consultation is required for all areas of Botox, and treatment can be performed on the same day if the patient is a good candidate. While the service itself is relatively quick, the injection of Botox requires skill and accuracy to ensure that it’s spread evenly and precisely. Most patients do not require numbing as the sensation of the injection is similar to a hard pinpoint pinch. Amanda will then begin injecting the agreed-upon amount of units of Botox into the desired areas with a very thin needle.
And just like that, you’re all set. Enjoy the amazing results, and we’ll see you again in a few months!
