What is cosmetic Botox?


Most of us have probably heard of Botox, particularly about celebrities who appear to have more youthful-looking skin than they should for their age.

Botox made a name for itself from exactly celebrities hitting the red carpet over the years with flawless skin without a wrinkle or crease in sight.

Botox is a form of injection that is used to temporarily minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in many different parts of the face including the forehead, between the eyebrows, at the corners of the eyes, on the sides of the nose, and other parts of the face.

Botox works by blocking the signal from the brain to the facial muscles where it has been injected, thereby preventing the muscles from being able to contract and form wrinkles.

The injections provide a subtle result so that you will still look like yourself, just a more youthful version as your facial lines and wrinkles will be less noticeable.

The amount of Botox used will vary by person, with the amount being determined by your dermatologist, such as the team at Dr. Shadi Concierge Medspa to get you the results you are looking for.

What can I expect with a cosmetic Botox treatment?


Botox injections are a quick and virtually pain-free treatment that is performed in clinics across the country by qualified practitioners.

Your dermatologist will want to have a consultation with you before the Botox injection to understand what you are looking for with Botox treatment and discuss your overall health.

They will help you to determine if Botox is the right solution for you and will be able to walk you through the process as well as the expected results.

The injections themselves will be fairly quick and have no downtime, meaning you could get them done over your lunch. Like many other needles, clients may experience a slight pinch where the needle gets inserted into the skin.

The needle used is very fine to minimize the appearance of needle marks, potential bleeding, and bruising. Clients may experience some tingling and redness in the treated area following the injection.

Many clients also see immediate results following their treatment, with the full results being visible within 30 days of the injection.
While the longevity of the results will vary by client, in most cases they last around 4 months.

What do I need to know about cosmetic Botox?


Cosmetic Botox has been on the market for several years and has been a part of countless published studies to test its effectiveness and safety.

It is FDA-approved for use to treat the signs of aging and is the most widely studied and researched anti-aging treatment that is used worldwide.

Botox treatments are not permanent, and clients will need to plan for follow-up treatments every 3-6 months, depending on how their skin responds to the treatment, to maintain the results.

Botox can be used on several different areas of the face for cosmetic purposes to smooth wrinkles and facial lines, as well as prevent new ones from forming.

Clients can expect to see results within a day or two of their treatment, with the Botox solution continuing to work for a few weeks following the injection to provide the full results in about 30 days.

Into what areas can Botox be injected?


When used for cosmetic purposes, Botox can be injected into several areas of the face, depending on the area being treated. While it is most commonly used on the forehead to treat horizontal wrinkles, it can also be used between the eyebrows, at the corners of the eyes for crow’s feet, on the chin, around the mouth, and at the corners of the nostrils.

The purpose of Botox is to minimize and smooth out existing wrinkles and fine lines and stop the face from forming these lines when a person smiles, frowns, or laughs.

Working with a certified Botox practitioner, such as the team at Dr. Shadi Concierge Medspa, will ensure that the injections are being used where they make the most sense and will provide the best results for the client.
