What is Botox and how does it work?
The substance known as Botox is a purified form of the botulinum toxin type A. This substance can be used to temporarily paralyze muscles responsible for certain types of wrinkles. Botox was originally created as a treatment for eye muscle spasticity, but has since been approved by the FDA for use as a cosmetic treatment as well. Botox is injected carefully into the areas of the face that are being targeted to relax facial muscles responsible for certain types of fine lines and wrinkles. It is most often used to target forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, lines around the mouth, and crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. For medical purposes, Botox can be used to treat chronic migraines, some bladder issues, and other conditions that are caused by muscle tension.
How many units of Botox will I need?
At Advanced Aesthetics, we believe in creating a completely customized treatment protocol for each of our clients. The total number of Botox units necessary to address your facial concerns will depend upon a number of factors including which areas of the face you are interested in treating and the severity of the wrinkles being targeted. On average, a total forehead rejuvenation could require anywhere from 10-30 units of Botox, while a subtle smile lift will require as few as 3-6. Glabellar lines between the brows are one of the most popular areas treated with Botox injections and this area typically requires anywhere from 10-25 units to achieve the client’s desired results.
How long does Botox last?
Botox is a long-lasting treatment solution, but the results you achieve are not permanent. The total amount of time you will enjoy your Botox results will vary depending on the severity of your condition and your body’s individual metabolism. On average, most patients enjoy a smoother and more youthful complexion for anywhere from 3-6 months. The advantage of Botox is that it can offer natural-looking benefits that last for several months, after which your treatments can be repeated if you wish to maintain your results. This is part of why it is so important to find a med spa practice where you not only feel comfortable, but where you can achieve your treatment goals. At Advanced Aesthetics, we prioritize the well-being of our clients by prioritizing our relationships and working to get to know our patients on a personal level, so we can help them look their best each and every time they visit our practice for care.
