Botox is a medical injection that contains a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. When injected into specific areas, the neurotoxin temporarily stops muscle activity or the transmission of nerve signals to the brain.
Though Botox has many uses, most people know it best for its ability to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox treats:
These types of wrinkles are dynamic wrinkles, which are lines that form from facial expressions. Every time you squint or frown, your facial muscles create grooves that fold the skin.
As you get older, your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity. This results in folding that creates permanent edged lines and creases. Botox temporarily stops the facial muscle movement that causes these wrinkles, allowing the skin to relax and smooth itself out.
The team at Integrative Rejuvenation takes an individualized approach to care. They customize your Botox treatments to match your skin needs and beauty goals.
In general, Botox is a quick, painless, in-office procedure that requires no downtime.
While you lie back and relax in the treatment chair, your provider cleans your skin with an antibacterial agent. Then, they carefully and expertly inject small amounts of Botox into your skin.
Though you may need several injections, treatment takes less than 30 minutes and causes very little pain. You might notice some redness at the site of your injection, but you can go back to your normal routine after Botox injections.
However, the Integrative Rejuvenation team recommends you wait at least two hours before engaging in strenuous physical activity and avoid consuming alcohol for up to a week.
You can expect to see results from your Botox injections within 7-14 days*. These results usually last for 3-6 months*. When you notice the effects of your Botox wearing off, the Integrative Rejuvenation team recommends scheduling your next set of injections.
Regular Botox injections may cause the muscles under the skin to thin, prolonging your results. It may also prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
