Palm Beach Gardens BOTOX – Lets You Say Goodbye to Wrinkles Without Inconvenient Downtime
Be One of the Millions to Again Discover Their Youthful Appearance.
Since 2002, over 10 million vials of BOTOX® have been sold around the United States. Like getting a manicure, or enjoying a massage, people everywhere have already made BOTOX® a part of what they do for themselves.
As a non-surgical option to erasing frown lines and crow’s feet, both men and women can rediscover the flawless complexions of their younger days without the need for surgery. Another benefit experienced by patients is a visible lifting of the brow line, helping your face look less tired and adding to a more youthful complexion.
What is BOTOX?
It is the only FDA approved treatment for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. It is also one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and has a record of experience that the aesthetic specialists at Laser Skin & Wellness know and trust.
Derived from a number of natural sources, it is the brand name coined by the Allergan Pharmaceutical Company for its one of a kind FDA approved formula. Although now the name BOTOX® is commonly used as an overall term when describing similar products from other companies, no studies have been able to support the other products’ performance when compared to the Allergan original formula. This is why Allergan can continue to advertise it as the only approved formula for aesthetic use.
How Does It Work?
The primary cause of issues like crow’s feet and frown lines are the repeated muscle contractions from squinting and yes, you guessed it, frowning. As these contractions continue over the years, the effects will start to be displayed and then increase.
BOTOX® injections target the specific facial expression muscles within these problem areas. It then chemically blocks the impulses to the muscle from the nerve, resulting in the relaxation of the muscle and preventing it from contracting. In short, when injected into the area, the formula will temporarily reduce muscle activity.
After the session, the skin is smoother and lines are softer, while at the same time, any untreated muscles continue to contract in a normal fashion. This method allows your facial expression as well as your sensation to be genuinely unchanged. As time progresses, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet and frown lines.
How Long Do Treatment and Recovery Take?
After your initial consultation, the procedure itself should only take about 10 minutes or less. The recovery time is essentially non-existent so you should be able to resume your regular activities immediately upon leaving the Med Spa facility.
How Quickly Might I See the Results of the Treatment on My Face?
Initial relaxing of the musculature may begin in as little as 24 to 48 hours and the full effect should be complete after 2 weeks. This is why we wait 14 days before any “touch-up” treatment will be performed.
How Often Should I Schedule Treatments?
Although the results can last up to four months, when receiving BOTOX® treatments at the Laser Skin & Wellness Med Spa, we recommend our patients schedule their first 3 appointments at twelve weeks apart. After that, the following 2 treatments can be sixteen weeks apart. By using this schedule, we can perform follow up treatments before muscles have the chance to regain full movement, aiding in the prevention of additional wrinkles.
