With so many beauty procedures on the market, Botox is probably one of the most well-known and popular treatments of them all. The ability to relax muscles that causes wrinkles and fine lines are what our clients love about the procedure. Botox is very safe and has been used by clients of all ages and backgrounds for many years. It is mainly used to reduce expression wrinkles in the face, but can also be used to treat migraines, psoriasis, eczema, and alopecia.
Our highly trained team of professions injects botulinum toxin into the upper muscles of the face where wrinkling occurs. The product blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, making wrinkles relax and soften. Visible lines are reduced with near-zero downtime, making this procedure a quick and efficient way to give your look a lift. The process itself takes just 10 minutes and can enhance your facial balance and harmony in specific facial areas such as the mouth, nose folds, cheeks, around the eyes, and your lips.
You won’t need anesthesia for Botox, but we may use numbing cream to help avoid the pinching feeling of the needle. It is also recommend to avoid rubbing the injection site for at least 24 hours so that you don’t spread the product to another area. We also suggest that you avoid alcohol at least one week before the procedure, and to stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications at least two weeks before your procedure to prevent bruising. For the best results after your procedure, you should stay upright for four hours after the injection and not work out for the day.
Botox is a non-surgical procedure that brings reliable results and can last on average between three to six months between appointments. Depending on the amount injected and how quickly your body metabolizes the substance, our experienced team will be able to assist you in creating a plan that is perfect for you. Full results will appear after one week, and you will feel the difference in muscle mobility and see the difference during this time.
