Botox is a cosmetic treatment designed to eliminate wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles to curb movements in the face. This will help to reduce facial lines and prevent new ones from forming, leading to healthier, smoother skin that will make you look and feel younger. The injections inhibit the skin’s muscle contractions to prevent new wrinkles from forming. They can even reduce jaw clenching to help reduce headaches and migraines. Botox is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that will be effective for a 3 – 4 month period. Fairfax botox services are trusted to produce fabulous results.
Why Choose Botox?
Those who experience too many facial muscle contractions that cause wrinkles and sometimes headaches will benefit greatly from Fairfax botox treatments. Botox works wonders in preventing chronic pain by correcting bruxism and jaw clenching that is causing constant discomfort. Using botox to relax muscles will effectively treat these issues for 3 to 4 months. In some cases, the treatment will stay effective for up to 6 months. Elume Medspa uses botox to treat all facial areas. It works especially well on the forehead, the region between the eyes and treating crows feet around the eyes.
The Fairfax Botox Procedure
At your first appointment, our medical spa technicians will gauge the amount of botox needed to correct issues in your treatment area. After determining the correct amount, the areas in and around the treatment area will be iced to prevent any discomfort. The technician will then administer injections to the treatment area. The procedure will take up to 15 minutes to complete.
When the treatment is over, you may experience swelling and redness at the injection site. You may also notice a slight bump, but it should recede within 5 to 10 minutes. You will begin to see the full results of your botox procedure within one to two weeks. The wrinkles will dissolve along with any muscle movements you were experiencing pre-injection. You can receive a free consultation from Elume Medspa to know the amount you will receive and the price of your procedure.
What Are The Benefits Of Botox?
The biggest benefit of undergoing a botox procedure is that it is non-surgical and non – invasive. It is a quick and painless procedure, and is highly effective at producing desired results. Botox has been proven to make skin look younger, smoother and more attractive. It reduces signs of aging and gives your skin a radiant glow.
Are There Any Risks to Botox?
Small doses of Botox are relatively harmless, however Botox is considered a toxin. Undergoing too frequent and too heavy of botox injections is highly advised against because they can pose unhealthy side effects. However, when these injections are administered by a trained Elume Medspa professional, side effects are far less likely to occur. Skin and muscle irritations are common post-injection, but they will likely go away on their own. The risks of botox may vary depending on you as an individual. Since every patient’s skin and health history is different, some may be more or less prone to side effects.
Who Should Avoid Botox Procedures?
Those who have current skin conditions such as: deep scarring, lesions, herpes, keloids, warts, severe acne or other conditions like autoimmune disorders or untreated diabetes should avoid a Botox procedure. Women who are pregnant are also bad candidates for botox injections. Patients who have recently received chemical peel treatments, collagen injections or any other skin procedures in the targeted treatment area should wait for at least two to three weeks before undergoing a Botox treatment. Potential patients should also avoid tanning or waxing in the weeks preceding their botox injections.
