Frequently Asked Qestions
Botulinum toxin, often referred to as Botox, is an injectable medication that relaxes target muscles.
Botox® relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles by temporarily interrupting the neural signal sent to that muscle.
There is a mild discomfort during the injection. We utilize insulin needles, which are very small, to help minimize discomfort...but it is still an injection. Some clients experience a headache following their first forehead injection of Botox, which is totally normal and can be relieved by tylenol or ibuprofen.
Redness, bruising or pain at the injection site may occur. Dizziness or headache may occur as well. Relaxation of unintended muscles may occur, and is temporary.
Typical treatment areas include: forehead, between eyebrows, eyebrow lift, crow's feet (around eyes), bunny lines (bridge of nose), lip flip, chin, platysma bands (neck) and masseters (outer jaw, helps with headaches and TMJ/teeth grinding pain). You can also use Botox in the armpits and anywhere else you have excessive sweating to decrease or eliminate sweat for up to 4 months.
You will start to see effects in 3-5 days, full effect will take up to 2 weeks.
results will last typically 3-4 months. If lip flip was performed it may only last up to 2-3 months due to the frequent use of the muscle injected.
As we age wrinkles, fine lines, and creases find their way onto our faces. These symptoms of aging can inaccurately portray us with an older, tired appearance regardless of how youthful and vibrant we feel. Treatments like Botox® give us the power to reject these effects of aging and protect our natural, youthful faces. A very simple, but effective injectable treatment, Botox® can prevent the development of, and even reverse lines and wrinkles. Preserving your natural beauty.
The benefits of Botox® injections are straightforward: a softer, happier-looking appearance. A relaxed, pleasant smile gives the perception of an inner state of well-being as well as an outward sense of confidence. After the injection, the muscle contractions are relaxed, resulting in a smoother, wrinkle-free appearance. Two weeks later, after the treatment has settled in, many clients look in the mirror and smile at what they see: an outward appearance of happiness and poise that has been restored.
This subtle rejuvenation might lead an acquaintance to think a particularly relaxing vacation was just enjoyed. Botox® injections are subtle, discreet, and effective. Which can suit the needs of a wide range of men and women.
Smile lines and wrinkles created by different facial muscles define our unique faces, showing our positive emotions; but they may also be seen as frown or scowl lines. With Botox®, we can relax specific muscles resulting in the smoothing of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles. This gives the appearance of more youthful and rejuvenated skin which shows a more positive outlook. Botox® treatments can even prevent new wrinkles from forming.
When Botox® is Useful
Botox® is also useful in preventing embarrassing social sweating. Underarms and palms can be treated so that minimal, if any, perspiration occurs. Even on the most stressful occasion or life event, such as a wedding.
Nearly any healthy adult over the age of 18 is a great candidate for Botox® services. A few restrictions exist, for safety reasons. If you are pregnant or still breastfeeding, we will need to wait until you are finished to treat you, as it is not currently approved for this demographic. If you have a history of stroke or other neurological disorders Botox® is also not safe for you. For appearance-savvy men or women who are interested in affordable, quick, and subtle results Botox is a great option. Traditionally Botox® was only used by women in their 40’s and 50’s. However, an increasing number of younger clients as well as men are receiving Botox® treatments for prevention. This is because it can stop new lines or wrinkles from forming. The effects are temporary, as it lasts 3-4 months. Meaning it can be enjoyed without committing to the high expense of a facelift or committing to a permanent physical alteration. Most clients are seeking a gentle and affordable method for improving their appearance and putting a halt to the effects of aging that concern them.
The procedure can be completed in as little time as a lunch break and there is no downtime required.
