Botox is a medication that works by relaxing the muscle that it’s injected into from contracting, so it appears smooth. Botox is effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing new wrinkles from forming.
What Is Botox And How Does It Work?
Botox® is a neurotoxin that is injected into the muscle for temporary relaxation of fine lines and wrinkles caused by age, repeated facial expressions, and overexposure to the sun. Botox® takes a few minutes to perform, in fact, it’s known as the “lunchtime procedure.”
- On the forehead (frown lines)
- Vertically or horizontally in between the eyes (brow furrows or glabellar) and/or the crow’s feet or laughter lines around the eyes.
- To correct a “gummy” looking smile
- On “bunny line” wrinkles either side of the nose
- In the chin to correct “chin-ullite” bumpy chin
- in the masseter muscles to slim the face, and help with teeth grinding
- in the platysmal bands
The procedure is safe, not painful and is quick to perform.
Although there are different types of Botulinum A toxin on the market, but they are NOT the same as BOTOX®. As expert injectors, we have utilized many different brands of neurotoxines, and have come to find that many people don’t tolerate these other brands well. At Beauty Boost Med Spa, Inc. we strive for perfection and want our patients to receive the best products out there. We chose to use BOTOX® as our neurotoxin of choice due to its consistent results and longevity.
Who performs the injections?
BOTOX® Injection procedures are considered medical techniques that should be carried out in a controlled medical environment and administered by a qualified and experienced medical professional. We only use experienced, qualified doctors to perform our treatments, so you can be absolutely sure of a highly professional, discreet and safe service.
What does the treatment entail?
There is an initial detailed consultation with a doctor, who will listen to what effect you are trying to achieve and advise accordingly. They will ask you to move the relevant areas of your face ( – that you wish to soften and rejuvenate), note any natural asymmetry, and take photographs for your own private record sheets. A bespoke treatment of Botox® will be administered, as every patient is different and not everyone wishes to have the same end result. Between 5-10 small injections are necessary, depending on which areas are to be treated, and each combined consultation and treatment lasts around 30
What our patients have to say
I live in Napa, CA and had my Botox completed while in Newport just so Anisa could be the practitioner!
This is by far the best place I have ever had my botox and filler done.
