What is Botox?
Botox is a simple non-surgical procedure that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by decreasing muscle activity in the treatment area. Additionally, Botox can provide subtle recontouring for certain facial features. Many of our patients at Trans Center choose to enhance the results of their gender transition surgeries with Botox. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox is the most common cosmetic procedure, with 4.6 million treatments performed in the United States each year.
The Botox Procedure
If you are bothered by forehead creases, frown lines between the eyes, or crow’s feet, Botox Cosmetic can eliminate those worries for you. Botox is a quick, highly successful, and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes the muscles to contract, Botox Cosmetic enables them to relax. These effects are localized only, and do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or show your unique facial expressions. The treatment takes just a few minutes and there is no downtime afterward.
For transwomen, Botox is a great way to obtain further femininization of the face. Botox injections can lift the brow, and can also decrease brow bossing when combined with injectable fillers. Additionally, Botox can soften and contour a prominent jaw for a more feminine look.
Botox Cosmetic is effective on all ages and skin types, and millions of patients have realized the benefits of Botox treatments. You can expect to see results within a few days of the treatments, and visible results can last for up to four months. Typically patients will return for a follow-up treatment at that time in order to continue the aesthetic benefits of Botox Cosmetic.
