Botox

Relax & Let The

Wrinkles Fade Away!

The Treatment

Our Aesthetician begins by identifying the treatment zones. Areas where persistent wrinkles exist on the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet), between the brows, or at the edges of the mouth.

A small needle is then used to inject Botox into specific muscles located within the treatment zones. There is only minor discomfort during the injection, but you may notice small red bumps that will diminish in 20-30 minutes.

The procedure has no associated down time, other than avoiding strenuous exercise until the following day.

Smooth Youthful Looking Skin

The Best Skin Of Your Life

The End Result

You will notice the Botox begin to work in 3 to 5 days, and it generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect. The muscle movement in the areas of treatment will be restricted which is what creates the smoothing effect.

Whether it was for forehead wrinkles, crows feet, frown lines, or the corners of your mouth for the next 3 months you can relax and bask in your new-found self-confidence and youthful look.

At around the 3 month mark you should start to see the effects slowly begin to wear off (depending on many factors it can potentially happen quicker or longer, but 3 months is a good average). After this period, you should make note of the time span and evaluate when you will be ready for another treatment. Creating and staying on a schedule will help to maintain your youthful look.

The End Result

We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.

For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:

  • Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads

  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring

  • Reduces age spots and redness

 

For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:

  • Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles

  • Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars

  • Shrinking large pores

  • Tightening sagging skin

Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.

What Is Botox?

Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a FDA-approved neurotoxic protein produced by bacterium. It is referred to as a neuromodulator because it interferes with the neurotransmitters at the neuromuscular junction.

 

Simply put, it temporarily relaxes the musculature surrounding the injection site by blocking the nerve signal.

This has the effect of reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Creating a smoother, more youthful look. It can also be used to treat conditions such as migraines and excessive sweating.

FAQ'S

Is the procedure painful?

Generally no, it is relatively painless. There will be a minor stinging sensation during the injection and a little redness and swelling that goes away fairly quickly.

What does the Botox do?

Botox is FDA-approved product that relax the muscles underneath the skin in order to help soften the lines between your brows, forehead, and the crow’s feet around the eyes.

How long does it take?

This simply depends on the amount of units you need. It can last anywhere from 10-30 minutes sometimes even a little longer.

How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?

The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.

Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.

How does incontinence relate to age?

Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.

Why should I care about my bladder control problem?

People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
