When considering solutions to diminish signs of aging, Botox® is one of the most popularly considered options. Well-renowned for its safe and effective wrinkle reduction, Juvanew Medspa recommends Botox® for anyone who wants to reduce lines and wrinkles in less than a week.
What to Expect with Botox®
Botox® is made of Botulinum Toxin Type A. The low doses of toxin bind with the receptors to block the nerve’s commands for muscle contractions, temporarily numbing the muscles. They do not numb the entire face but only problematic muscles responsible for wrinkles around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and the horizontal lines on the forehead.
Botox® treatments do not require an anesthetic. One of our specially trained nurses injects the Botox® with a fine needle. You may experience brief, mild discomfort during the injection. This will fade quickly. After a few minutes, you are done. You may return to work immediately, but strenuous exercise may need to wait until 12-24 hours after.
Botox® results are not immediate. The neurotoxin must be absorbed, trigger the receptors, and stop the responses. Consequently, Botox® typically takes 3 to 7 days to work. Final results appear around two weeks after your injections.
How Long Do Results of Botox® Last?
Botox® results do not last forever. This anti-aging treatment lasts 3 to 4 months for most people, although some may only need touch-ups every six months. After your first treatment, you may notice the results lasting longer as your retrained muscles stop consistently contracting.
As your facial muscles are used less frequently, your muscle mass will diminish, causing longer-lasting results. Do not worry. Not all facial muscles are numbed with Botox® so that you will maintain your natural expressions.
Often when people hear the word “neurotoxin,” they become nervous. While Botox® is a neurotoxin, it is administered in low dosages. Botox® was thoroughly tested and FDA-approved in 2002. Botox® is low-risk and is safe when administered by a professional such as the nurses at Juvanew Medspa.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the United States. Most people who want to eliminate unwanted lines and wrinkles on their faces are good candidates for Botox®. Since Botox® is a temporary treatment, you may decide to quit injections and return to normal afterward.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 18, or suffering from a neurological disease, you may not be a good candidate for cosmetic Botox®.
