Botox is a simple, FDA-approved, anti-aging procedure that takes years off your appearance in just 10 minutes. It’s an injectable made of botulinum toxin type A, a substance that relaxes muscles in your face associated with laugh, frown, and smile lines without surgery.
Some of the main benefits you can expect when choosing Botox at Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa include:
Botox is also helpful for reducing headaches, migraines, lazy eye, eye twitching, and excessive underarm sweating.
The Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa team may combine Botox with dermal fillers to improve facial volume and contours, in addition to diminishing lines and wrinkles.
Your Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa provider lets you know if you’re a candidate for Botox after discussing your medical history and beauty goals. They examine your skin in areas you’re concerned about and tailor a cosmetic treatment plan that meets your expectations.
When receiving Botox injections, you relax in a comfortable padded chair. Your Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa specialist numbs the treatment area to reduce any discomfort. They gently inject Botox right beneath targeted areas of your skin. Since the procedure often takes about 10 minutes and there’s no downtime afterward, it makes an excellent lunchtime treatment.
After Botox injections, you can resume normal daily activities immediately. Swelling, tenderness, and redness at the injection sites are common temporary side effects. You can ice the treatment area to reduce swelling, but don't touch the injection sites to avoid spreading Botox to other areas of your body.
After a day or two, you can expect the effects of Botox to kick in, resulting in smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin. After a period of about 3-4 months, you may need repeat injections to maintain long-lasting results.
