Patients who desire injectables like BOTOX® in Hawaii may have noticed the effects of age, gravity, exposure to sunlight, and the stresses of life all taking their toll on a person’s face. Deep creases often develop around the nose, eyes, and mouth causing unsightly wrinkles which make the patient look older. Such factors may affect an individual’s confidence, leading them to seek their own BOTOX® treatment in Hawaii.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injectable that contains a purified form of a toxin called botulinum toxin type A. When injected into the facial muscles, botox inhibits the nerves from sending signals to the muscles to make them contract which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine line. Botox also has a number of other uses. It is used to help treat excessive underarm sweating, a condition known as hyperhidrosis. It is also used to help manage chronic migraines.
The Benefits of Botox
BOTOX® can help such individuals restore youthful vibrance and energy to the face. The effects of time are virtually undone to restore an individual’s face and to remove some of the effects of time and aging. Dr. Healy accomplishes such effects by injecting BOTOX® beneath wrinkles to smooth them out. BOTOX® effectively relaxes the facial muscles underneath the skin which causes the wrinkles. This not only helps to restore the physical appearance of the patient but also restores self-confidence and respect to the patient.

Is Botox Right for Me?
Use of BOTOX® is an individualized procedure in which your goals should be realistically determined and discussed with your physician. Together you will determine what specific procedures will be performed. BOTOX® is often used in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift or eye surgery. Once your goals have been determined you will set a date for this procedure and will be given instructions about how to prepare.
What to Expect During Your Botox Treatment
When the date for your BOTOX® injections in Hawaii has arrived, the procedure should not take long unless you are having other procedures performed with the injection. Each injection has relatively little pain or discomfort, usually a stinging or burning sensation unless anesthesia is used.
It is important to remember that Hawaii BOTOX® injections are no replacement for surgery procedures and can not achieve as dramatic of a result. BOTOX® injections are also usually temporary in nature, but the length of duration may differ between individuals. Individuals may also consider fat injections. In a fat injection, fat is removed from another portion of the body and then injected into the body to fill in wrinkles. Due to the nature of the procedure, it will usually take longer than other injectables as the fat must first be removed from the patient before it is reinjected.
Recovery is usually quick and post-recovery pains are minor. Usually, a bit of swelling may occur and redness usually subsides within about a day or so. The degree of swelling will usually depend on the size of the treated area and other individual factors unique to each patient.
