What signs of aging can Botox improve?
Botox is an FDA-approved, highly purified form of botulinum toxin — a naturally occurring substance — that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and lines around your eyes and forehead. When the certified medical aesthetic experts at My Retreat Med Spa inject Botox into specific areas across your forehead, between your eyebrows, or at the outer corners of your eyes, you’ll see less visible lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet in the upper portion of your face and around your eyes. When wrinkles disappear, it may even help your eyebrows to look lifted, and your eyes may look less tired.
How does Botox work?
Your provider injects Botox into specific facial muscles, so they become temporarily paralyzed. As a result, you can still make your natural facial expressions, but your skin stays smoother. To ensure that Botox injections work as they’re intended, it’s important to receive them from master injectors and highly skilled medical aesthetics experts, like the team of board-certified nurses and physician assistants at My Retreat Med Spa.
How soon will I see results after Botox injections?
Most men and women notice smoother lines and facial wrinkles just 24-48 hours after receiving Botox injections. The results can last up to four months, too, and many people get Botox a few times a year, so they can maintain their desired results. Your provider can help you decide on a treatment plan that meets your individual aesthetic needs.
What can I expect during my Botox appointment?
Botox injections take just a few minutes. Depending on the area you’re having treated, your provider injects Botox into several points across your forehead, at the outer corners of your eyes, or between your eyebrows. During this quick procedure, you may feel a mild pinch of the needle, but it’s otherwise painless and easily tolerated.
After receiving Botox to minimize your wrinkles and lines, you can go about your daily routine without the need for downtime or recovery. In fact, you can schedule an appointment for your lunch hour and go back to work afterward.
