Botox at Minton Medical Clinic & Aesthetics


IT IS COOLER THIS WEEKEND. HELLO. WE ARE AT THE MEDICAL CLEANSING AND AESTHETIC. WE ARE JOINED BY DOCTOR DYER, WELCOME. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US. Reporter: WE ARE TALKING ABOUT BOTOX. EVERYONE HEARS THE WORD BOTOX. THEY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS OR WHAT IT DOES. IT IS ONE THING YOU OFFER HERE. CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT BOTOX AND SOME GENERAL INFORMATION? ABSOLUTELY. AS WE AGE, WE GET FINE LINES AND WRINKLES. THE PREDOMINANT AREAS ARE THE FOUR HEAD AND IN BETWEEN THE BROWS. WHEN YOU WORK OUT, YOU BUILD UP AND BECOME STRONGER. WHENEVER WE USE FACIAL EXPRESSIONS THROUGH SMILING OR SQUINTING, THOSE MUSCLES BECOME STRONGER. THEY CAUSE THE SKIN TO FOLLOW IN OVER TIME AND THAT CAUSES A REGAL. BOTOX IS A PRODUCT. IT WEAKENS THE ACTIVITY OF THE MUSCLE TO ALLOW THE SKIN OVERLYING IT TO SOFTEN THE WRINKLES. Reporter: IT MAKES IT MORE SMOOTHER AND LIKE YOU SAID, WITH TIME, WE START NOTICING THE WRINKLES IN DIFFERENT AREAS. BOTOX CAN SMOOTH OUT THOSE FINE LINES. IT DEFINITELY CAN. I STARTED DOING IT IN THE MEDICAL ASPECT OR CHRONIC MIGRAINES. THE PRINCIPAL IS STILL APPLYING . YOU ARE WEAKENING MUSCLE CONTRACTIONS THAT CAN LEAD TO HEADACHES BUT WE ARE WEAKENING THE STRONG MUSCLE CONTRACTIONS WHEN WE ARE EXPRESSIVE. Reporter: WHAT PEOPLE CALM AND TALK TO YOU, THEY CAN DISCUSS WHAT IS BEST FOR THEM ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO AND IF BOTOX CAN HELP THAT SPECIFIC AREA. ABSOLUTELY. TREATMENT IS INDIVIDUALIZED. EVERY PERSON HAS DIFFERENT MUSCLES THEY USE. DIFFERENT UNITS COULD BE NEEDED. ON AVERAGE, THERE IS A RECOMMENDATION FOR THE FOUR HEAD IN BETWEEN THE BREAD, 20 UNITS GIVE OR TAKE. FOR CRISPY, IT CAN RANGE IN 20 TO 24 UNITS. SOME MAY REQUIRE MORE OR LESS. I WANT TO ERROR ON THE CONSERVATIVE SIDE BECAUSE YOU CAN ADD MORE IN. IF YOU PUT IN IT TOO MUCH, WE DO NOT WANT THAT PLASTIC LOOK. YOU STILL WANT TO MOVE YOUR FACE . Reporter: YOU WERE PERFORMING BOTOX ON LESLIE. THANK YOU FOR LETTING US FOLLOW YOU DURING THIS JOURNEY. WOULD YOU SHOW EXACTLY WHERE YOU ARE INJECTING LESLIE AND THOSE AREAS? WE HAVE TAKEN HER MEDICAL HISTORY. WE TALKED ABOUT THINGS THAT WE WOULD NOT WANT TO PERFORM BOTOX FOR. IF THEY ARE PREGNANT, IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO USE BOTOX. SHE DOES NOT HAVE ANY OF THOSE CONDITIONS. IF SHE WERE ON BLOOD THINNERS, THAT IS NOT NECESSARY A COMPLICATION BUT WE WANT TO BE AWARE OF THAT. SUPPLEMENTS SHE TAKES, WE ARE NOT ON ANY THOSE. THE CONCERN ARE THE LINES AND HER FOREHEAD AND BETWEEN THE BROWS. IT LOOKS LIKE THIS. A SMILE LINE, WE SEE THAT ON THE SITE. YOU CAN SAY SHE HAS BEAUTIFUL COMPLEXION. SHE DOES NOT HAVE A LOT OF LIES. BUT SHE WANTS TO ADDRESS THEM. WE WILL DO THAT TODAY. LIFT YOUR EYEBROWS UP. YOU CAN SEE THAT DEFINITION OF THE MUSCLE. WE DO NOT WANT TO KNOCK THAT MUSCLE OUT BUT WE WANT TO SOFTEN IT. Reporter: WONDERFUL. WE ARE GOING TO ADDRESS THE MUSCLE HERE AND SHE WILL RECEIVE AN INJECTION IN THE MUSCLES BETWEEN THE BROWS. WE WILL DO THE FOREHEAD BUT WE CAN SEE BEFORE AND AFTER FOR TREATMENT AREAS. WONDERFUL. Reporter: WALK US THROUGH WHAT YOU ARE DOING FOR LESLIE. YOU MENTIONED, YOU KNOW, THE DOWNTIME AND EVERYTHING LIKE THAT FOR BOTOX. THERE IS REALLY NOT ANY HONESTLY. ON THE DAY OF THE INJECTION, YOU MIGHT HAVE A LITTLE BRUISING WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED. THAT IS SELF-LIMITED AND RESOLVES WITHIN A DAY. PEOPLE COME IN ON LUNCH AND GO BACK TO WORK. Reporter: GO AHEAD AND WE WILL FOLLOW YOU THROUGH THIS. IF YOU DON’T MIND TALKING US THROUGH WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I HAVE 20 UNITS OF BOTOX. WE WILL CLEANSE THE AREA WITH ALCOHOL. WE WANT TO GUARD AGAINST INFECTION. WE ARE GOOD THERE. THERE ARE TYPICALLY FIVE AREAS WHERE WE INJECT INTO THE FOREHEAD . WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE STAY HIGH ENOUGH BECAUSE WE DO NOT WANT DROOPY EYES THAT CAN HAPPEN IF WE INJECT TOO LOW. WE WILL INJECT ACROSS THE TOP AND THROUGH THE MIDDLE. A LITTLE POKE. THE NEIL BARELY GOES UNDERNEATH THE SKIN. IT’S JUST A SMALL AMOUNT OF AMOUNT IS IN. Reporter: IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO BE PAINFUL EITHER. YOU KNOW, WE TALKED ABOUT THE DOWNTIME AND RELATE NOTE DOWNTIME AND IT IS A SIMPLE INJECTION, CORRECT? YES, IT IS. SOMETIMES WE GET A LITTLE BIT OF BLEEDING BUT THE NEEDLE BARELY GOES UNDERNEATH THE SKIN. SOMETIMES IT FEELS LIKE A BEE STING. YOU MIGHT GET A LITTLE BIT OF SWELLING WHERE THE MEDICINE GOES IN WHICH IS TO BE EXPECTED. Reporter: WHEN CAN YOU SEE THE SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE AFTER THE BOTOX IS DONE? IT CAN KICK IN WITHIN 24 TO 48 HOURS. I TELL PEOPLE, THE FULL EFFECT SHOULD BE SEEN WITHIN ABOUT TWO WEEKS FOR MOST PEOPLE, IT IS EARLIER THAN THAT. I LIKE TO GIVE IT TWO WEEKS BEFORE WE HAVE A FOLLOW-UP APPOINTMENT TO MAKE SURE IT HAS KICK 10. IT KICKS AND LET’S SAY, WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS. IT SHOULD PLATEAU IN TWO WEEKS AND SHOULD LAST FOR MONTHS. I HAVE SOME PEOPLE CAN GO WITH 20 TREATMENTS AND SOME ARE SHORTER. IT DEPENDS ON THE METABOLISM. AND ALSO HOW STRONG THE MUSCLE CONTRACTIONS ARE. Reporter: EXACTLY. THANK YOU. IF YOU WANT TO FIND MORE ABOUT BOTOX AND IF IT IS RIGHT YOU, CALL AND COME IN AND TALK TO DOCTOR DYER ABOUT YOUR
