Botox is an injection treatment provided by our med spa that can mask the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. This non-invasive affordable procedure can easily fit into anyone’s schedule and is perfect for any skin tone or gender. Enhance your natural beauty with Botox.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is injected into the muscles of your face so they are no longer able to contract: repeated contraction of these muscles cause fine lines and, essentially, reflect your daily schedule. For example, those who smile a lot throughout the day may develop smile lines and those who squint can get crows feet. Most patients experience fewer wrinkles while enjoying normal facial expressions — your face won’t be frozen.
Botox was recognized by the FDA in 1989, then approved for cosmetic use in 2002 and is currently administered in 98 countries with over 13 million vials sold and 495 peer-reviewed articles.
When Should I See Results?
Your results will depend on your treatment. However, most begin to see results within 2 days and, in many cases, patients can see full results after two weeks. You may continue to see improvement up to a month after receiving Botox injections.
How Long Will Botox Last?
Most continue to enjoy the benefits of their Botox treatments three to four months after their procedure. However, the frequency in which you make those movements that caused fine lines to develop will have an effect on how long your treatment lasts.
Generally, patients who receive multiple procedures over time, will enjoy cumulative, long-lasting results.
Does Botox Have Side Effects?
Most patients experience pain at the place where the Botox was injected as well as redness, bleeding, and bruising. Headaches can also occur, but most do not experience long-term side effects. Having your treatment done at a local med spa by an experienced doctor can yield the best results.
Should I Get Botox?
Anyone can get Botox. However, those with nerves or muscle diseases, allergies to Botulinum Toxin or Human Albumin, planning to get pregnant, are pregnant, planning to breastfeed, or currently breastfeeding should avoid Botox
