What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medicine that freezes the muscles below the skin, stopping targeted muscles from sagging into wrinkles. Botox isn’t a new cosmetic procedure, and it’s talked about frequently, but many of our patients want to know what exactly the treatment involves. Botox works using tiny facial injections with a fine needle in the targeted muscle area. The protein then blocks signals between the nerve endings and muscle, causing the wrinkle and allowing the muscle to relax and smooth the fine lines of the skin.
How long does Botox last?
Our patients want to know how long Botox lasts, and whether or not the results are permanent; the good news is that Botox is a temporary treatment. Results appear within 10 to 14 days from your initial visit and last for about three to four months.
Why is this good news? It means that you can customize Botox injections every few months to achieve the ideal look. After a few months, you can decide if you’d like to continue with a maintenance procedure, change the areas you’d like to treat, or stop completely. Has a new wrinkle appeared? We’ll target that area next time. We can also tone down the effect in specific areas, should you decide to lessen the amount of Botox used. It’s a completely personalized treatment, for completely unique results, so that you can reverse your wrinkles and feel confident every day.
What is Botox used for?
Botox isn’t a new cosmetic procedure, but many of our patients aren’t sure what the treatment involves, or what it’s used for. Because Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles below the skin, it is most effective at targeting the muscles involved with creating and deepening frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as moderate to severe crow’s feet.
Who can use Botox?
Botox isn’t just for older men and women. In fact, some patients begin using Botox as early as the mid-20s in order to make minor adjustments that enhance their appearance. Patients in their 30s choosing to start Botox usually do so to stop small wrinkles from deepening and to retrain muscles not to sink further into those lines and creases. Starting early can help slow wrinkles from becoming pronounced, instead of just waiting until your 40s or 50s to try to minimize lines.
What to expect during a Botox treatment
There’s no reason to feel intimidated by Botox treatments. Botox is widely used by physicians, nurses and aestheticians throughout the country to control or reduce dynamic facial wrinkles, and the team at our medspa is experienced in achieving natural, youthful results. Administration of Botox is a relatively pain-free procedure and only takes a few minutes. To prepare your skin for an injection, we may apply a cold pack for a temporary, mild numbing effect. Then, during the injection you will feel a pinching sensation, but it swiftly passes. After the Botox injection is complete, recovery time is minimal, so that you can continue with your daily activities unimpeded.
