BotoxⓇ is the first FDA-approved treatment for the temporary smoothing of frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. It’s an injectable formulation that takes just minutes and lasts for as long as four months. Many men and women choose Botox to achieve a more youthful appearance, and it can also help you look well-rested. For those with deep frown lines or forehead lines, Botox can make them appear more relaxed and approachable.
Botox is created from Clostridium botulinum, a substance found naturally in lakes, forests, and soil. Deadly in certain concentrations, the volume used in aesthetic applications is perfectly safe.
Botox works by temporarily impeding the ability of the small muscles in your face to go through their full range of motion. That means the targeted muscles can no longer pull and tug your skin into lines, folds, and wrinkles.
The injections are administered using an incredibly thin needle that doesn’t penetrate very deeply. It takes five injections to treat frown lines, between 6-10 to treat forehead lines, and up to four to treat crow’s feet. The entire process takes only a few minutes, and there’s no need for anesthesia or recovery time. You can get back to your daily activities immediately following your appointment.
These effects are temporary. You’ll notice results within a day or two, although the full effects may take up to two weeks to develop. Those results last for around four months, at which point you’ll notice your lines and wrinkles gradually deepening.
These unnatural effects are not the result of Botox itself, but of unskilled placement. Optimal effects are the result of the careful placement of injections at the proper tissue depth and using the right volume of Botox.
That’s why it’s so important to receive Botox from a trained medical professional. The pros at Rejuvenation Medi-Spa have the expertise needed to evaluate your facial features and administer Botox injections to give you a more youthful appearance that is also natural-looking.
Botox is the subject of more than 15 years of clinical study and is discussed in more than 500 peer-reviewed articles published in medical journals. Botox has been used in medical applications for more than 50 years and has an excellent safety track record.
