What is Botox?
Also known as Cosmetic Botox, this is a type of prescription medication that is only available through a licensed and trained doctor. It comes in a liquid form that the doctor injects into the skin. Most patients require two or more injections per session. You can use the injection as a way to treat fine to moderate wrinkles and fine lines. The injection essentially freezes your face and blocks the appearance of those wrinkles. Some also use it as a treatment for those dealing with excessive sweating. When injected into the sweat glands, it keeps the patient from sweating. You may notice results after just one injection.
How Does it Work?
The biggest question that we get from patients is about how this facial rejuvenation treatment works. This substance is a type of neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin type a. When injected into a patient’s skin, the toxin prevents the nerve from sending and receiving signals from the brain. Instead of moving when they receive a signal from the brain, the skin remains frozen in place. As your skin does not expand and contract, the treatment can both reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and prevent those problem areas from worsening. It performs similarly when injected into a sweat gland.
After a Botox Miami appointment, you may notice some results almost right away. As the injection freezes the skin, many patients find that they can open and close their mouths/eyes, smile, talk and eat without seeing the wrinkles and lines on their faces move. You should notice some significant improvements within the next three to seven days. This occurs as the full effects of the injection settle into the skin. It can take up to one or two weeks before you view the full results of the procedure. Most patients find that they notice some simple changes in the first few days that gradually improve in the coming weeks.
How Much Pain Will You Experience?
Most patients find that the answer to this question ranges from none to mild. As long as you can handle the slight pinching sensation that comes from the needle, you’ll have no problem getting the injection. You will not receive an anesthetic because the procedure is so basic. The doctor can pinch the skin before inserting the needle to reduce some of your discomfort. It often feels similar to the way you would feel after getting stung by a bee. You should not feel any pain after your appointment either.
How Long Do Botox Treatments Last?
These treatments produce effects that last for months. The full results that you see depend on factors such as your age, the size and depth of your lines and wrinkles and whether your skin still has a significant amount of natural elasticity. One injection can produce results that last for up to six months. This is common among those who target fine lines or wrinkles and have more skin elasticity as well as those who are younger. Those who are older and have deeper wrinkles or lines combined with poor skin elasticity will still see results that last for up to three months. Once you notice the effects wearing off, you can schedule your next appointment.
Will You Experience Any Side Effects?
This non surgical procedure does not have as many associated side effects as some might expect. You may witness some slight bleeding during your appointment as the doctor injects the needle into the skin. Though the bleeding should stop before you leave, some find that the spots still appear red for a few hours. A small number of patients also found that the injections led to bruising and discoloration that lasted for a few days. Swelling and tenderness are also common.
What You Need to Know
One of the main things that you need to know about these injections is that you should only have them done by a licensed practitioner. It’s easy to find horror stories about people who had injections done by those without proper training. At MiamiMedicalSpa, you don’t need to worry about suffering from serious complications and side effects. Migration is an issue that occurs when the injection goes into the wrong spot and weakens the muscle. This allows the substance to move from the targeted spot to other areas of your body. Our doctors ensure that you get the injections you need in the right spots.
Botox Downtime and Aftercare
Having one of these injections is so easy that you can schedule your appointment in the middle of the day and go right back to what you were doing at the end of the session. We recommend that you schedule your appointment at least two weeks before a special occasion though to ensure that the swelling goes down and that any bruises disappear before that event. You’ll want to stay upright for a few hours after your appointment to give the injection time to settle and avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for at least four hours. Make sure that you avoid alcohol and anything that can thin your blood for the rest of the day. After four hours, you can resume your regular activities, including going to work, hitting the gym or spending time with friends.
Benefits of Botox
For wrinkle and facial lines removal, Botox is one of the best treatments that you can choose. It has FDA approval to treat both different types of wrinkles and lines as well as excessive sweating. Some found that it can help with the pain associated with migraines and Bell’s Palsy. If you have one eye that constantly twitches, the injection may help with that muscle spasm too. Some of the other benefits of this treatment include:
- Reduces the symptoms of TMJ
- Takes years off your face
- Has fewer side effects than other injectables do
- Serves as an affordable treatment for those with age spots
- Provides results that you can see almost immediately
That last benefit is why so many Miami locals call us. With other treatments, you might wait days for the swelling to go down and weeks before you see any results. Even the lotions and gels that work take a long time to change your skin. With this non surgical procedure, you see changes in the next few hours that only improve over the next few weeks. Your loved ones, neighbors, coworkers and others will notice those changes too.
