Botox Injections to relax wrinkles

What Is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a type of injectable cosmetic treatment (BOTOX® shots) that uses a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze muscle activity in specific areas of the face. BOTOX® is most used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What Its for

  • Reduces lines and wrinkles
  • Lessens jaw tension

How it works:

Using BOTOX® we inject a small amount of botulinum toxic into specific muscles in the facial area to temporarily block them. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines resulting in smoother, softer skin. When administered by qualified, experienced specialists, BOTOX® is an FDA approved, extremely safe and reliable treatment.

How does Botox Cosmetic work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions over the years from frowning, squinting, smiling, and raising the eyebrows . Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.

Do I need to be over 40 to use Botox Cosmetic?

It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.

The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to the reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your practitioner. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.

Will I see results quickly? How long does the treatments effect last?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your practitioner will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

What are the side effects of Botox?

Common side effects of BOTOX® include mild pain or discomfort at the injection site, swelling, and bruising. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as difficulty swallowing, breathing, or speaking may occur. It’s important to consult with your  specialist to discuss the risks and benefits of Botox treatments.

What is the recovery time for Botox?

There is typically no downtime or recovery time needed after a BOTOX® treatment. Guests can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Can BOTOX® be combined with other treatments?
