Botox

smoothing your facial wrinkles
Botox at Med Spa
An FDA-approved prescription medication that is injected into the muscle and is able to temporarily smooth facial lines and wrinkles, achieving a significantly smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. By stopping the signal from the nerves to the muscles that cause wrinkles to form, wrinkles aren’t only softened; they can also be prevented from forming at all. When injected by a properly qualified and trained medical professional botox is one of the safest, nonsurgical wrinkle reduction procedures offered in the cosmetic industry.

Botox

Consists of purified proteins produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium and works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles and reducing the appearance of the dynamic wrinkles and lines.

Botox Treatments

Typically administered between the brow (glabellar), to treat forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), bunny lines, neck and is a great option for excessive underarm sweating.

Botox Results

You will start noticing a difference in your facial muscles about 2-7 days after getting BOTOX injections, with the full effect taking up to two weeks. Results generally last 3-4 months. Some patients experience results even longer (4-6 months), while others see their results lasting closer to two months. It’s also important to note that first-time results tend to not last quite as long. Most patients prefer to have follow-up treatments every three or four months to maintain their results.

Downtime and Side effects of Botox

One thing that patients love most about BOTOX is that it demands no recovery time. Some patients do experience side effects such as headache, nausea, temporary eyelid drooping, and/or bruising and numbness at the injection sites, but these are very rare. If you’re worried about any of these side effects, please bring them up during your consultation.

Who is a good candidate for Botox?

As a general rule, if you begin to see lines and wrinkles that are visible when your facial muscles are relaxed, it’s probably time to start BOTOX treatments. For some, this may be as early as the mid-20s, while for others, the lines and wrinkles become evident in the mid to late 30s. The effects of aging appear at various times based on genetics, ethnicity, and environmental factors such as wind, cold weather, and sun exposure.
