BOTOX® is a treatment nearly everyone’s heard of, and millions of people in the US have performed every year. When we express ourselves, our skin can get quite the workout, and repetitive movement from smiles, frowns, and brow furrows can develop lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® treatment pauses these dynamic facial expressions to give your skin a chance to heal and diminish wrinkles. Balanced Aesthetics Medspa has specialists who are highly trained in the art of BOTOX® injections.
BOTOX® has proven to be a remarkably safe and effective treatment to diminish the lines and wrinkles that form due to repetitive facial movements. Most people can receive treatment with little to no adverse reaction. Provide your medical history with all medications (including topical) you’ve taken in the past 30-days. We will discuss your goals to determine the best treatment plan for you before any injections are administered. Schedule a consultation with a Balanced Aesthetics specialist to get started.
A single BOTOX® treatment can achieve your desired results, which will generally last 3-6 months. Most patients see results within 3-5 days after treatment, though for some, BOTOX’s® effects may require 7-10 days to become visible. In that time, your facial expressions stop etching your lines and wrinkles into your skin, giving your cells a chance to repair themselves. Your lines and wrinkles diminish, and there are no frozen or overdone results at Balanced Aesthetics Medspa.
BOTOX® is derived from botulinum toxin Type A, a neurotoxin that interrupts the signals from your brain to your facial muscles, typically those of the forehead, between the brows, or around the eyes. When these muscles don’t move as much, your skin has a chance to repair the damage that causes wrinkles and lines. The overall effect is a younger, smoother appearance. The art of BOTOX® treatments is in the injection placement, and Balanced Aesthetics can erase your dynamic wrinkles without sacrificing the facial movements that let your personality shine.
Having BOTOX® injections is no more painful than a typical pinch of a needle. We use ultra-thin needles and precise dosing to ensure you have as comfortable a treatment as possible. Our provider will thoroughly clean the treatment area(s) before injecting. Your BOTOX® session will take only 10-15 minutes, and you can return to your everyday schedule right away, though you should refrain from strenuous exercise, intense heat, or saunas for at least 12 hours post treatment.
BOTOX® may cause some muscle weakness, vision problems, or dizziness directly following treatment for some patients. Brow and eyelid drop is rare but may occur in some patients. Allergic reactions are also rare but may occur, causing itching, redness, rashes, and asthma symptoms. Most people feel none of this and only experience some mild injection site tenderness or headache.
