BOTOX is an injection that has many purposes. The injection works by temporarily paralyzing your muscles. While this sounds unsafe and, frankly, useless, this muscle paralysis can eliminate wrinkles and lines, giving life to your look after years of wrinkle-accelerating muscle habits.
The active ingredient in BOTOX, called botulinum toxin, is common in nature. When used correctly, by a trained professional, BOTOX is very safe and can be used for both aesthetic and medicinal purposes.
BOTOX has a wide variety of uses. If you feel like your face could use a touch up of elasticity or roundness, BOTOX can help you achieve the younger look that you want. BOTOX’s long list of aesthetic targets includes:
Each of these features is caused by years of repeated muscle use. BOTOX paralyzes these muscles, smoothing the age-related lines and wrinkles in your face to make you look younger.*
Knowing what to expect before your BOTOX appointment can help calm your nerves and allow you to be more comfortable during your injection and confident in your decision. At the appointment, a nurse at IVY Infusions may offer you a topical anesthetic to alleviate pain or discomfort from the injections. The procedure lasts roughly 15 minutes with little to no recovery time afterward.
The results may be seen anywhere from 24 hours to 2 weeks after treatment. For optimal results, Sasha recommends a single session every 3-4 months.
After a BOTOX session, you may experience a few side effects, but they usually go away within a week. Normal side effects from BOTOX include:
If you notice more serious symptoms, like muscle weakness or trouble breathing, you need to contact the office as soon as possible. If you have concerns about the risks that come with BOTOX injections, she can further inform you of your chances of having a reaction.
