As one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, Botox is routinely used by millions of people. The Langdon Center is a leading provider of Botox treatments in Guilford, CT.
Common treatment areas include frown lines (between the eyebrows), worry lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, sagging eyebrows and smile lines. The non-invasive treatment can be used in multiple areas and takes minutes to complete, which means you can target more than one area in one session if you choose to.
What Does Botox Do?
Botox is a muscle-relaxing agent. When injected into a specific area, it prevents the muscle from contracting. It’s this constant muscle contracting and relaxing that causes wrinkles to form. By limiting the movement of the muscle, the appearance of wrinkles and fines lines are minimized.
Furthermore, reduced movement in the muscle prevents new wrinkles from forming. By having regular Botox treatments with Dr. Langdon you can, therefore, prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
How Long Will My Results Last?
The results of Botox treatments are typically visible within three to five days, although some patients may find it takes seven to ten days for the effects to become visible. Generally, the results of Botox injections last for around four months. As the effects of your treatment begin to wear off, further Botox injections can be given to maintain the efficacy of the treatment.
As a non-invasive form of cosmetic treatment, Botox is easily administered by an experienced surgeon. With extensive experience in the field, Dr. Langdon is well-known for his advanced technique which minimizes discomfort and bruising.
If you’re nervous about treatment or worried about feeling any discomfort, you may choose to have anesthetic applied to the area prior to the Botox injection being administered. This numbing cream ensures the treatment is practically pain-free and doesn’t require any downtime or recovery period. Alternatively, our PRO-NOX™ sedation ensures a pain-free and stress-free experience for patients who are apprehensive about undergoing treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Botox?
Most people between the ages of 25-75 are good candidates for Botox treatments. For individuals over the age of 75, there are alternative treatments that are more effective at minimizing the appearance of ‘static wrinkles’.
For patients within the 25-75 age bracket, however, Botox remains one of the most effective ways to combat wrinkles and reduce their appearance. As the skin tends to respond well to the impact of muscle relaxation throughout this age group, Botox injections have a high success rate.
Of course, every patient is unique and will be individually assessed prior to any treatment being commenced. By evaluating your medical history and discussing your concerns and goals, Dr. Langdon can confirm the suitability of Botox treatments and/or introduce you to alternative treatments that may be more suited to your needs.
“I was very pleased with Dr.Langdon and his staff.I have seen him twice for Botox injections and each time was relatively painless and was very happy with results. As a woman in my early 40’s, I have had experiences with different doctors in the past and often had inconsistent results. Wait time was minimal, and I am very satisfied with my experience here!!! I have high standards and Dr. Langdon not only met, but exceeded them!!!” *
