BOTOX® is used in extremely small amounts in order to reduce and eliminate wrinkles, causing them to soften and in many cases disappear completely.
BEFORE AND AFTER
A few drops of BOTOX® are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates the wrinkle. The BOTOX® immediately works to block nerve impulses from reaching that muscle. As the muscle weakens, the skin overlying the muscle relaxes and the wrinkles gradually soften and often times disappear completely. This effect usually occurs within 3-7 days from the day of treatment.
The most common areas for the use of BOTOX® are:
BOTOX® is produced by the global pharmaceutical company Allergan. Generally, the effects of a BOTOX® treatment typically last between 3 to 5 months. After several treatments, the effects may begin to last longer, generally in the 6-8 month range. We invite all of your clients back for a complimentary touch up within 14 days of treatment.
Regarding preparation for a BOTOX® treatment, we recommend avoiding alcoholic beverages, anti-inflammatory medications, vitamin E and aspirin for one week prior to and for one week after treatment. For best results, we also recommend that the client not lie down for 3-4 hours following the treatment.
