LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2015) - Many patients who desire a more youthful-looking appearance are uncomfortable with the idea of surgical enhancement, explains Mary Sullivan-Bryan, a Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialist in Las Vegas. At her practice, Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa, she says she typically can help individuals reduce the appearance of many common signs of aging without surgery using BOTOX® Cosmetic. As a result, she indicates that many people want to learn more about this aesthetic treatment. To provide a helpful resource and to guide patients in their research, she answered several frequently asked questions about BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Understanding what BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of can help patients better understand the purpose of the product, Mary Sullivan-Bryan begins. Comprised of a muscle relaxer, she says the minimally invasive cosmetic injectable is designed to temporarily reduce movement of the muscles that can contribute to wrinkle formation on the face, such as around the eyes, along the forehead, and between the brows. She adds that calming certain overactive muscles can help to gently smooth out the fine lines in the treated areas and achieve a natural-looking outcome. Patients often ask how long benefits will last, and she says the duration will vary from person to person but generally continues for about three to four months. She also offers a brief overview of the potential side effects, which may include bruising, tenderness, and redness at the injection sites. She indicates that these issues typically resolve in a matter of hours.

Mary Sullivan-Bryan also emphasizes that BOTOX® Cosmetic should be performed by a qualified injector to achieve the safest and most effective results possible. Furthermore, she notes that during treatment patient comfort can be optimized with the use of local anesthetic and cold compresses.

Ultimately, Mary Sullivan-Bryan hopes that providing an informative resource on BOTOX® injections can help patients determine if this non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure may be right for their needs and goals. She adds that a high quality medical spa will be happy to take the time to answer any questions a person may have, and individuals considering BOTOX® injections should seek out the best trained practitioners they can before undergoing treatment.
