What is BOTOX®?
Smiling, frowning, raising your eyebrows – they are all a natural part of our facial expressions, but they often create lines where our muscles are frequently moving. Some lines are much deeper than others and this can make us look tired and aged. BOTOX® is derived from a botulinum toxin that has been refined to be safe for medical use. It is the number one aesthetic treatment in the United States and is used to temporarily reduce movement in certain areas, improving the look of moderate to severe crow’s feet lines or frown lines between and above the eyebrows, among other areas. Results last approximately 3-4 months and can temporarily diminish wrinkles to erase one of the most obvious signs of aging!
How does Botox work?
BOTOX® is injected in areas as determined by our medical experts after a full facial assessment. Patients are typically asked to move the muscles in their faces to determine how many units are required to soften moderate to deep wrinkles, perform a ‘lip flip’ (a treatment which can give the appearance of a fuller lip when smiling), or treat Masseters (resulting in a slimmer, heart shaped jawline or reduction of pain from Temporomandibular Joint Disfunction, or TMJ). BOTOX® can also be used to treat hiperhydrosis (excessive sweating) in areas such as the palms or underarms. Once the areas of injection are determined, a topical numbing cream may be used to minimize discomfort, but the injections can be performed in as little as 5 minutes.
Is BOTOX® right for me?
BOTOX® can be life changing for aesthetic or therapeutic reasons. If you want to reverse time, or at least smooth your skin for your next selfie, BOTOX® can be the secret to enhancing your beauty. It can also be used as a preventative to keep your skin fresh and youthful, even if you have not yet developed fine lines! Javan’s approach to BOTOX® is natural, to preserve your facial expressions without delivering an overly ‘frozen’ look. BOTOX® alone can yield incredible results. However, when combined with a proper skin care regimen (hydration, moisturizing and sunscreen) and/or Dermal Fillers, the results are even more profound and can last much longer. Your skin’s surface becomes smoother and the appearance of wrinkles can diminish, revealing a brighter, and more youthful you!
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved and is minimally invasive, unlike aggressive surgical treatments. If you’ve been avoiding cosmetic procedures because you don’t want to have the downtime that surgical procedures require, then this is the solution for you! Best of all, it causes little discomfort and results are noticeable within 3-7 days.
