BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedure done in America today, with over 7 million happy patients in the last year alone, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. No longer an outlandish approach to reducing forehead wrinkles, brow furrows, or crow’s feet, these injections are the most effective non-surgical alternative to the facelift. Rejuve Med-Spa’s highly trained expert injection specialists are ready to help you with BOTOX®.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
The expressions we make—smiling, squinting, frowning—contribute to repetitive motion of our facial muscles, which in turn create wrinkles in our skin. BOTOX® is a neurotoxin designed specifically to block the nerves that move specific facial muscles. This amazing medication can temporarily paralyze muscle movement responsible for wrinkles around your forehead and eyes, revitalizing your skin and giving you a refreshed, alert, and youthful appearance for 3-6 months at a time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
BOTOX® only temporarily freezes the muscles in your treatment area, so the results are not permanent. As time passes, you’ll notice increasing muscle relaxation in your treatment area, and if left untreated, the muscles will resume their prior position and movement. Because of this, 3-4 month maintenance treatments are necessary as recommended by your Rejuve Med-Spa provider.
Over time, your muscles become accustomed to the effects of BOTOX®. This means they require less volume of BOTOX® to achieve the same paralysis as your first treatment, and your maintenance treatments can be spread further apart in time. Some veteran BOTOX® patients only require two injection sessions a year to keep the same great results that give them the bright-eyed, refreshed, and glowing aura of youth that is BOTOX®’s signature.
Am I a Good Candidate?
BOTOX® is a good option for nearly anyone seeking to reduce the lines and wrinkles around their forehead and eyes to restore a younger appearance. Those allergic to any ingredient in BOTOX®, have a skin infection in the treatment area, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a muscle or nerve condition may not be ideal patients for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
Results and Downtime
There is absolutely no downtime associated with BOTOX® injections, and the appointments are so quick that patients often schedule them over their lunch break. It can take between 7-14 days for the first results to be actively visible, but as time goes on and your facial muscles become accustomed to the injections, the results take hold sooner, and are longer lasting, stretching from a 3-4 month maintenance schedule up to 6 months. This is because BOTOX® has “trained” your muscles to relax, and they learn to stay in position. A regular, routine injection schedule will contribute greatly to the outcomes patients seek from having BOTOX® injections.
Effective, natural looking BOTOX® treatments take an aesthetically critical eye, experience, and an artist’s hand. The makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Allergan, have personally trained our expert injection specialists in the art and science of BOTOX® treatments, so at Rejuve Med-Spa, you can be assured of two things: your treatment is performed by the best in the Dallas area, and you’re going to love your results.
