Am I a Candidate for Botox?
BOTOX injections are great for individuals who wish to diminish and soften the appearance of dynamic lines on their face without surgery. BOTOX is also used as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even if you do not show signs of aging. It is a great nonsurgical treatment if you have forehead wrinkles or glabellar lines between the brows. It is also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have more pronounced wrinkles, a filler product may be a better option. Based on your amount of skin laxity and desired outcome, Dr. Christy will help you determine if BOTOX treatments are right for you at your consultation.
What happens after I get BOTOX injections?
You may notice a bit of minor swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment areas, but these symptoms should not be long-lasting. Your technician may recommend that you avoid strenuous physical activity and do not touch the treated areas of your face for the next day a day or so. Over the course over 48 – 72 hours, you should start to notice your firm, smooth results. BOTOX injections may deliver up to four months of natural-looking, youthful improvements for most people. We will let you know how often you need injections as part of a personalized plan to meet your cosmetic goals. We can discuss the projected cost of BOTOX injections; however, the price tends to vary, according to the quantity of units utilized.
How many BOTOX treatments will I likely need?
The number of BOTOX injections administered will differ based on personal goals and the severity and depth of your facial lines and wrinkles. Dr. Christy or a member of her team can suggest the appropriate number of BOTOX injections according to your desired treatment desires and whether you want to treat the Crow's feet, forehead, or between the eyes. To maintain your cosmetic outcomes, we may recommend having BOTOX services every few months at Body Bar MD.
Can BOTOX be paired with additional cosmetic treatments?
BOTOX often pairs well with other noninvasive solutions at Body Bar MD for women and men who prefer to reduce aging concerns. If you notice more pronounced and severe wrinkles and creases, our team could talk with you about administering a filler for optimal results. To further enhance your younger-looking appearance, Dr. Christy or a member of her team could discuss other complementary treatments, including facials or PRP with microneedling.
Are there comparable cosmetic injections?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a certain formulation of wrinkle relaxer that competes within a myriad of other effective solutions, including Jeuveau®, XEOMIN®, and Dysport®. These wrinkle-reducing options are made from type A botulinum toxin; however, they are each created uniquely to meet particular concerns.
What's the difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Although wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are provided to decrease fine creases by temporarily preventing your muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a different category of cosmetic formulations that enhance facial volume. Fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Christy can ascertain if you may be a good candidate for a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
Plan Your Procedure
Upgrade your Look with Botox
After the BOTOX injection, you can resume your normal activities, although strenuous exercise should be skipped for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated sections of your face can appear bruised, swollen, or red for a few days, but you will not develop any serious or long-lasting side effects. In many cases, it takes about one week before the final effects of BOTOX are visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You should talk to your injector about when to schedule touch-up appointments at Body Bar MD to maintain your results.
To smooth and prevent lines on the face, we invite you to schedule an appointment today.
