Is Botox Right for Me?
“What does it mean to grow old gracefully?”
“How do I embrace my aging face?”
These are common questions we’ve all probably wondered at one time or another. This past year, thanks to endless Zoom calls, we might have found ourselves noticing our fine lines and deep wrinkles a little more closely, make us look older than we feel.
Now the question has shifted to: “Is there something I can do to smooth the lines and still look like myself?”
Botox is the most requested non-invasive treatment for a single reason: It smooths out the wrinkles on the face and lasts up to 3 months.
Let’s take a closer look. What is Botox exactly?
Botox, or onabotuliniumtoxin A, is a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks the nerve signals to the muscles. Repeated muscle contractions, like those used when we express ourselves, are one of the causes of facial wrinkles. Treating these with Botox minimizes their use, helping to eliminate the possibility of creating deep wrinkles.
What areas are treated at Reclaim Medical Aesthetics?
Botox helps reduce and smooth the dynamic wrinkles around the face and can be injected into the following areas:
- Upper Face
- Frown lines (between eyebrows)
- Forehead lines
- Top of the nose (also known as bunny lines)
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
- Under the eyes
- Lower Face
- Lipstick lines around the mouth
- Chin (to prevent dimpling)
Is Botox painful?
Botox involves a series of very small injections to the treatment area(s). Some experience a slight sting that subsides quickly.
Like anything else, everyone handles injections differently. At Reclaim Medical Aesthetics, we use a variety of techniques to help you achieve your skin care goals while also keeping you comfortable during the full duration of your treatment.
What results should I expect?
Once Botox is injected into the treatment area, muscles will weaken over time and begin to soften. You can expect to see results within 5-7 days, with final results in 2 weeks. Botox generally lasts up to 3 months.
How much does Botox cost?
On average, Botox treatments range from $200-$500 depending on several factors such as treatment location, correction and how much product is needed for the desired outcome.
