Don’t let your skin give away your age! You can defy your age and enhance your skin at The Beauty Cell with Botox! Botox is an FDA approved injectable that has over time become a household name. When people think anti-aging, they think Botox! It was introduced into the aesthetics industry by Allergan in 2002, making it a pioneer for modern wrinkle treatments.
What is Botox and how does it Work?
Botox is made up of botulinum toxin type A, and is administered through injections. The botulinum toxin works by temporarily relaxing the muscles at the injection site; this disables the muscles just enough to hinder them from forming wrinkles. This also works as a wrinkle preventative for younger patients, as the toxin can help lower the chances of expressive wrinkles becoming permanent. Expressive wrinkles are only visible when the muscles form certain expressions, but over time these wrinkles can become permanently visible if left untreated.
After a consultation (where a treatment plan will be created upon examination), you will be able to schedule your treatment appointment. The treatment requires little to no downtime, so you can expect it to last anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes; this, of course, depends entirely on your unique treatment plan. The treatment plan will be specific to your needs and the area(s) you want to treat.
Botox is a temporary treatment, so that if you later decide that you would like to try one of our other treatment options, you can do so without risk. The results can be expected to last for about four months before touch-ups may be recommended. The best part? The results of Botox are an instant fix! You’ll notice a difference in appearance when you leave our office, but the final results can be observed about a day or two later.
