With millions of treatments performed a year, BOTOX® is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. Here at Persona Medical Spa, we have helped many people look and feel younger with this treatment. If you are considering it for the first time, chances are you have a lot of questions. Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is a popular non-surgical injectable treatment that greatly reduces lines and wrinkles by targeting one of the principal causes of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscles relax, which makes the wrinkles relax and soften.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
BOTOX® is by far the best treatment out there for addressing “dynamic wrinkles” — the wrinkles that appear as a result of making facial expressions over the years. The most common treatment areas include crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and the “11 lines” between the brows. While many people know that BOTOX® addresses facial wrinkles, it can also be used to prevent them from forming in the first place when used soon enough.
What Will the Treatment Be Like?
Treatment sessions are performed in the comfort of our office. During the appointment, the BOTOX® solution is skillfully injected into the treatment areas.
How Soon Will I See Results?
You may notice results within 24 to 48 hours, but you can expect them to show within days. It may take weeks to realize the final effects. It all depends on the unique case, and results vary from client to client.
How Long Does It Last?
The results of BOTOX® typically last for months at a time before repeat injections become necessary.
Is It Safe?
This is a technique-sensitive treatment. If you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and an expert in facial anatomy, you should feel confident to receive this very common treatment.
BOTOX® is one of the most common, safe, and effective beauty treatments out there. It’s subtle, so you’ll still look like yourself–only with less noticeable lines and wrinkles. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done. So, what are you waiting for? Reach out to Persona Medical Spa to schedule your consultation at our office in Houston.
