What is Botox?
The medicinal aspects of botulinum toxin (the compound used in most of today’s toxins) weren’t discovered until the 1950s. Researchers discovered that, when injected into a hyperactive muscle, the compound blocked the motor nerves from releasing a certain chemical that allows the muscle to function. Over time, when the compound wears off, the muscle activity will recover.
Today, there are different forms of purified botulinum that are subtly designed to have a range of strength and spread (the size of the area affected by an injection). These differences are useful in our practice, since all muscles have slight variations: People have different lines and muscle functions. Having new options gives us a more individualized approach to each patient.
What Can Botox Do for Me?
Unlike fillers, which are used to fill deep creases and lines in order to restore volume, toxins are a bit more subtle in their effects. By relaxing muscles, the result of the Botox injection is smoother skin with fewer lines. At Naturally You Med Spa, we use toxins judiciously in order to allow natural movement and expression, while also restoring a younger, more relaxed visage. An excessive amount of Botox can reduce or even stifle facial movement and it can take away the arch of the brows, and injecting every crow’s-foot will prevent your cheeks from lifting when you smile.
In addition to treating wrinkles and fine lines, we also use toxins to treat excessive or unwanted sweating, or to correct imperfections in symmetry. By targeting certain muscles, Beth Moffett, RNFA, can enhance facial aesthetics by raising certain areas (like eyebrows) or lowering others (like the upper lip, creating a less gummy smile).
What to Expect from a Botox Treatment
Length of Procedure
Toxin injection only takes about 15 to 30 minutes, which is how it gained the reputation as the “lunchtime procedure.” When combined with other procedures ( like filler injections, for example), it can take longer.
Don’t be surprised if it takes as long as 2 weeks to see the final results. For those who are considering toxin therapy for excess sweating, after treatment, underarms will reduce sweating and scalp line will no longer become frizzy after exercising.
Outside of a slight degree of redness around the injection site, there are almost no noticeable side effects after a toxin injection procedure. Occasionally, some patients may experience mild bruising. This can be minimized by following our patient guidelines and instructions. Many patients report feeling comfortable returning to work after the procedure. For the best possible results, please keep your head upright for the next 4 to 5 hours. Avoid irritating the surface of your skin with makeup, haircare (including washing, drying, or coloring), heat, or exercise. Please refer to our after care guidelines.
How Many Botox Treatments Will I Need?
For wrinkle and fine line reduction, toxins can last up to 3 – 4 months. We recommend our patients schedule a follow-up seasonally to maintain their results. When used to treat unwanted sweating, 1 treatment can last from 6 months to a year.
