Wrinkles and fine lines can be frustrating as they may make you look irritable or older than you are. Fortunately, Botox injections can minimize their visibility, enabling you to enjoy your youthful skin for longer. If the forehead creases and fine lines irritate, you can benefit from the Botox® Downey treatment at Younger World Med Spa.
What you should know about Botox
Botox refers to a cosmetic treatment that utilizes a neuromodulator to reduce the visibility of fine lines and other signs of aging. The neuromodulator, medically known as botulinum toxin, temporarily paralyzes the target muscles that facilitate the appearance of the creases and fine lines on your face. The relaxation of the facial muscles makes your wrinkle less noticeable, resulting in a radiant, youthful appearance.
The Younger World Med Spa specialists inject the substance into the treatment sites to ensure that you retain adequate muscle to facilitate facial mobility for facial expressions. Although the effects are not long-lasting, you can always schedule more treatment sessions at Younger World Med Spa as soon as the effects wear off. The results often last for about 4-6 months.
Imperfections and conditions that Botox can address
Botox injections block signals from specific nerves from reaching your brain. This treatment is often used for cosmetic purposes but can also treat medical conditions like bladder dysfunction. If you have laziness, a defect that occurs due to an imbalance in the muscles supporting the eye, you may benefit from Botox injections. Neurological conditions like cerebral palsy can result in the pulling in of your limbs, making it challenging to move around. In such cases, your physician may suggest the treatment to relax the contracted muscles. Botox injections can also treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating even in humid environments).
How you can prepare for Botox
Botulinum toxin can be harmful when in the wrong hands, making it vital to choose a certified doctor to prevent severe side effects. The Younger World Med Spa team has undergone vigorous training and has years of experience conducting cosmetic procedures. During your appointment, your provider discusses your beauty goals and performs a thorough physical exam to determine if you are eligible for Botox.
It would be best to tell your physician if you have had any Botox treatments in the past four months. Also, remember to mention to your specialist if you take allergy medications, muscle relaxants, or sleeping aids. You may also need to stop taking your blood thinners a few days before your treatment to minimize the chances of bruising or bleeding.
What to expect during Botox treatment
The procedure is painless, but if you want your skin to be numbed, you can inform your doctor beforehand. Your provider may inject controlled amounts of botulinum toxin into the target area. The number of injections you receive relies on several factors, such as the size of the treatment site. After the procedure, the team advises against rubbing the treatment site for 24 hours to prevent the toxin from spreading to the surrounding tissues. The results of Botox injections usually start showing three days after the procedure.
