What Our Clients Are Saying
BEFORE & AFTER BOTOX
Botox Treatment Guide
The effect produced by Botox injections is temporary “freezing” or paralysis of the muscles in order to reduce movement and wrinkle-causing facial expressions. As a result of blocking nerve signals and muscle contractions, we are able to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as train the muscles to contract less in the long-term.
Yes! Botox is FDA-approved, minimally-invasive, and there is little risk involved.
Our Botox treatments are performed in the office by one of our trained staff. We use a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of Botox into the skin and muscles, so there is minimal discomfort. Depending on your individual goals, multiple injections at different sites may be needed, but the overall procedure is typically very time-efficient. You can even come see us on your lunch break!
There is no downtime needed following Botox! That said, for best results, you will need to avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying excess pressure to the area for about 48 hours post-injection, to prevent interference with the outcome of treatment.
Botox dosage is measured in units, ranging between 50 and 100 units per vial. The number of units needed will vary from client to client and depend on the area or areas being treated. For example, larger zones such as the forehead will require more units than smaller areas such as the eye or lip area.
Botox injections can take about 48 hours to reach maximum efficacy. However, noticeable results from Botox can be enjoyed within only a few days post-procedure!
Results from a Botox treatment typically last about 3-6 months, and effects will taper off gradually. Over time, muscle movement will resume and a follow-up treatment will be needed if you wish to maintain your results.
Botox treatments are very time-efficient but will depend on the area or areas being treated. A typical procedure can be completed in less than an hour.
Anyone age 18 and up, who is not pregnant or nursing, may receive Botox. This treatment is most effective for anyone looking to reduce signs of aging caused by excess muscle movement, and looking to target fine lines, wrinkles, or facial creasing.
Side effects from Botox are typically minimal. Some swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site is normal immediately following treatment, but this is very temporary and will subside quickly.
Botox is a very versatile treatment for the face and other areas of the body. The most popular and effective uses include: forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, marionette lines, frown lines, smoker’s links, neck bands, and sagging brows.
Botox and facial acupuncture are both intended to address facial wrinkles. However, while Botox works to freeze the muscles and prevent movement quickly, the idea behind acupuncture is that it increases blood flow and energy to the tissue, thereby promoting collagen production and rejuvenation over time. Results from Botox tend to be more dramatic and fast-acting, whereas acupuncture treatments require continuous treatment over time, and produce a more subtle effect.
