Lines and wrinkles happen, but you don’t have to live with them anymore. If crow’s feet, forehead lines, or frown lines have begun to define your appearance, there is a solution, and that solution is Botox. At Beauty Co. in Raleigh, NC, we are proud to offer this trusted cosmetic injectable that will help you look and feel like a more youthful you in just one treatment.
How Often Can I Get Botox?
The earliest you should receive Botox treatments after your initial injection is typically at 12 weeks post-treatment. How often you schedule touch-up treatments is a matter of preference. If you are a perfectionist who shudders at the thought of a wrinkle, you will benefit from scheduling your touch-up appointments at the earliest recommended time, which is every three months.
If you take a more laid-back approach to beauty and don’t mind some light wrinkles, you can schedule your touch-up treatments as soon as you’re ready, or when your wrinkles return and you reach the point where they begin to bother you. If you’re unsure about how to schedule your treatments, we can pre-schedule them for you so that all you have to do is show up.
What Is Botox?
Botox is a form of anti-aging medicine. It is a neuromodulator in an injectable form that is injected directly into the muscles that are responsible for causing your wrinkles. Once injected, the main ingredients begin their work of relaxing your muscles by temporarily interrupting the communication between the nerve signals and the muscles.
The muscles stop contracting, the skin rests, and lines and wrinkles fade. You’re left with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that makes you look more youthful and well-rested.
What Does It Treat?
Botox is a versatile cosmetic injectable that treats many different areas of the face. It can smooth lines and wrinkles on the forehead, erase crow’s feet that form at the outer corners of the eyes, and soften frown lines that form between the eyebrows. During your consultation, you can discuss your problem areas with one of our expert injectors to help determine if this injection can effectively treat them.
What Happens During Treatment?
When you come in for your treatment, your injector will clean your skin and remove any excess oil or makeup. Then, she’ll apply a topical numbing cream to your injection sites to make sure that you have a painless experience.
Once your skin is prepared for treatment, your injections will be administered. One or more injections will be made in your treatment areas. Your appointment will be less than 30 minutes and then you can resume your normal daily activities.
Is It Just for Women?
Cosmetic injectables aren’t just for women, although women make up the majority of our patients. Many men have chosen this treatment to smooth their wrinkles, increase their confidence, and look and feel younger. Both men and women will get results from this treatment and can enjoy all of the benefits that it offers.
Will I Look Natural?
The fear of looking unnatural is a completely normal one. While Botox is a trusted brand, your injections are only as good as your injector. When you choose our office for all of your anti-aging needs, you can rest assured that you will be treated by the best of the best. They’ll listen to your concerns and make sure that you get results that you love, and nothing less.
How Long Do Treatments Take?
Treatments take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes to complete. Your appointment length depends on how many areas you are having treated. The benefit is, you won’t have to plan around any downtime, so as soon as your appointment is over, you can go about your day.
Is It Safe?
This injectable is one of the oldest, most reputable cosmetic injectables on the beauty market. It is FDA-approved to treat the signs of aging that appear on the face. When you choose Botox, you can rest assured that you’re choosing a safe treatment and you will get results that you love.
How Long Does It Take To Notice Results?
Results do vary, but most patients notice a visible change in their wrinkles and lines within 48 hours of their treatment. After that, results will continue to improve. You’ll notice your best results in the weeks following your treatment as your muscles relax and your skin finally gets the chance to rest from all of those dynamic movements.
How Long Will Results Last?
Once injected with this injectable, you’ll enjoy long-lasting results that last anywhere from three to six months, sometimes longer. The length of your results completely depends on how long it takes your body to metabolize the ingredients in this injectable. Once that happens, you’ll see a gradual decrease in your results. To maintain the most consistent results, you can schedule follow-up appointments as soon as you notice a change in your results.
