Have you noticed unwanted changes in your facial skin? Have you tried expensive serums and anti-aging creams without success? Are you ready to restore your youthful appearance quickly and easily? If so, you’ll be interested in learning more about Botox at Rejuvenate Med Spa in Oak Brook, IL. Read on to discover how quickly this anti-aging treatment works, where it can be used, and more.
How Quickly Do You See Results From Botox?
One of the benefits that makes Botox better than surgery is you don’t have to wait long to see your final results. Specifically, you can expect to see the initial results of your treatment session just one to four days after your injections are administered.
However, you should keep in mind that it can take a week or two for your final results to become apparent. Also, you should keep in mind that it can take a month or two for post-surgery swelling to fade and reveal the final anti-aging results.
Areas That Can Be Targeted With This Treatment
Another advantage this treatment has over surgery is its versatility. While you would need a different invasive procedure for almost every cosmetic concern, this versatile treatment can correct virtually any concern caused by overactive muscles.
This treatment is often sought for the reversal of forehead folds. The forehead muscles are so strong and frequently used that forehead folds are often the first prominent signs of aging. They also often deepen faster than dynamic wrinkles and folds in other areas.
The eye area is also prone to reveal the signs of aging quickly. This is because the muscles in the eye area are also commonly used, and the skin around the eyes is so thin. Fortunately, just a few strategically placed injections around the outer corners of your eyes will eliminate crow’s feet so you can laugh, smile, and squint with confidence.
Between the Brows
Sometimes referred to as frown lines, the dynamic wrinkles that develop between the eyebrows are caused by excessive muscle contractions. These wrinkles are incredibly frustrating because they don’t only make you look older than you are.
They can affect your relationships by making you look angry or frustrated even when you don’t feel angry or frustrated. These wrinkles can even make you look tired even when you are well-rested. Fortunately, you only need a few painless injections to kiss your frown lines goodbye and say hello to a youthful, well-rested, inviting appearance.
Around the Nose
This injectable muscle relaxant can also be used to erase bunny lines from around the nose. The best part is these hard-to-treat lines can be a thing of the past without any downtime or pain.
Around the Mouth
Do you have deep lines and wrinkles around your mouth making you look older than you really are? If so, this injectable muscle relaxant may be right for you. Whether you’re worried about smoker’s lines, nasolabial folds, or something else, if your cosmetic concerns are caused by excessive muscle contractions, this injectable can help. It can also be administered in the upper mouth area, naturally augmenting the upper lip.
Another place this injectable can be administered is the neck and jaw region. If you’re concerned about bands of overly tense muscles affecting your appearance, or if you have cosmetic concerns in your jaw area, you are sure to benefit from this injectable.
As stated previously, this injectable can be administered into the forehead and inner-brow area. However, the scope of this injectable isn’t limited to erasing wrinkles and folds in the upper facial area. It can also be used to lift loose, sagging eyebrow muscles, essentially lifting the eyebrows themselves without surgery.
Is This Treatment Really Pain-Free?
Yes, this treatment really is pain-free. We administer this medication with a tiny needle, so the injections don’t hurt at all. You’ll only feel a small amount of pressure as the tiny needle penetrates the outer layers of your skin. We assure you that you will remain comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Is This Treatment Safe?
Yes, this treatment is completely safe for individuals who qualify. In fact, it is so safe that it was approved by the FDA for safety almost half of a century ago.
How Should I Prepare for My Treatment?
We will advise you on how to prepare for your treatment session during your initial in-person or virtual consultation. Fortunately, the preparation required for this treatment is minimal due to its non-invasive nature. For example, you should stop smoking and drinking alcohol 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. You should also stop taking oral muscle relaxants, blood-thinners, and certain sleep aids for a few days prior to your injection.
How Long Should I Expect My Treatment Session to Take?
As a general rule, you can expect your treatment session to take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. However, we can give you a better idea of how long your session may last once we have discussed all of your cosmetic concerns. Several factors affect how long treatment sessions take, including the severity of the cosmetic concerns, the number of cosmetic concerns being treated, and whether you are only receiving injectable muscle relaxants during your appointment.
How Frequently Can I Come In for Treatments?
Typically, you can expect to come in every three to six months for injectable muscle relaxant treatments. However, you should understand that the longevity of your results depends on a wide variety of factors. If you feel the need to come in for a second injection session after your initial session, your second session will be scheduled approximately two weeks after your second session.
How Do I Know If This Is the Best Treatment for Me?
To find out whether this injectable muscle relaxant is the most effective way to achieve your unique cosmetic goals, you need to attend an initial consultation. During this consultation, we will verify that this treatment is appropriate for achieving your goals by discussing your concerns and goals, determining the cause of your concerns, and discussing your health.
When discussing your health, it is very important that you advise us on any medications and supplements you have taken recently and any pharmaceuticals you are currently taking. We also must be advised on any chronic medical conditions you suffer from, any acute illnesses you may have had recently, and your allergy and skin health history. If you are allergic to certain proteins or have a history of developing keloid scars, this treatment may not be appropriate for you.
How Should I Care for My Skin Following My Injections?
One of the most important things you can do to care for your skin after your treatment is to avoid direct sunlight for 48 hours. Also, you should refrain from participating in any activity that leads to sweating.
Additionally, you should not take any blood thinners for a short period of time. Moreover, you should keep your head elevated for at least four hours following your injections, and sleep on your back.
Is There Really No Downtime?
While it may sound too good to be true, you really don’t have to worry about downtime following your injections. Once your injections have been administered, we will review your aftercare instructions with you and give you the opportunity to ask questions.
After that, you are free to drive yourself anywhere you want and resume your usual routine as long as it does not cause sweating. Notably, this treatment is so convenient that it can be scheduled during your lunch break, and you can return to work without anyone knowing you’re getting professional help.
Can I Treat More Than One Region Per Session?
Yes, you can schedule a single treatment session and address many concerns during the same appointment. In fact, you can receive several anti-aging treatments, including dermal filler injections, at the same time as your injectable muscle relaxant treatment.
Quickly Restore Your Youthful Appearance
