What is Botox?

Scottsdale Botox injections are a simple, non-surgical prescription treatment that effectively smoothes frown lines and wrinkles and relaxes and lifts some facial muscles. Botox is a naturally occurring neurotoxin. When small amounts are injected into the skin, it temporarily blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles and reduces the skin’s ability to contract. Wrinkles then relax and soften giving the skin a younger, fresher appearance.

What Should I Expect after Botox?

For Botox aftercare, slight bruising, redness or swelling is normal and not permanent. Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area for 4 hours. Do not lie down for 4 hours after receiving injections to avoid the risk of placing pressure on the treated area. Within the first week after Botox, some tightness or slight heaviness is normal. Should this occur, it will typically subside within 1 to 2 weeks. Nicole Le Renard or Rebecca Embry will check in on your progress after about one week.

Who is Botox for?

Botox injections are ideal for men and women with wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines or those who wish to shape and lift their brow line. We all experience these signs of aging. They result from laughing, frowning and even years of vibrant living. With Scottsdale Botox treatments, fine lines are smoothed, eliminated or even prevented. The result is healthier, more youthful-looking skin and an increased sense of confidence.

Most individuals are good candidates for safe and effective Botox treatments. However, some are advised against undergoing this procedure because of allergies or certain health conditions. As Allergan Diamond Providers, Dr. Sonders and the team at Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics are ranked among the top one percent in the United States. At our medical aesthetics facility in Scottsdale, we take great care in consulting with every client before treatment with Botox begins. It is important to let us know if you are nursing or pregnant, taking prescribed blood thinners, have suffered any neurological disorders or are allergic to any of the ingredients in Botox or Dysport treatments.

What Does a Botox Treatment Consist of?

To enhance the effectiveness of your Botox treatment, plan to avoid getting a massage or lying flat on your face for four to six hours after treatment. It is also important to not participate in any rigorous exercise for four to six hours post-treatment. Waxing, bleaching or tweezing are best avoided for at least 24-hours prior to your appointment. Eat and hydrate as normal before your procedure.

Plan to spend about 45 minutes with us for your initial appointment at our Scottsdale office. This includes the time necessary to fill out paperwork, ask questions and get comfortable in our modern, well-equipped facility. The procedure itself only takes about 20 minutes. Once you are in the chair, our skilled technicians determine the best places to administer injections by watching your facial movements in the furrowed brow area. Your technician may numb the area with cold packs or cream, but no anesthetic is necessary. Botox injections are quick and relatively painless. They will not radically change your facial expressions. You can smile, frown or laugh even immediately after treatment. While results vary, expect to see a marked improvement within 3 to 4 days. Results typically continue to improve for up to a month and last about 4 months before subsequent treatments are needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

What Is Botox Made Of?

Botox is made of neurotoxin that is naturally occurring. The botulinum toxin is only injected in small amounts into the skin, causing a temporary nerve block. The result is fewer noticeable lines and wrinkles.

Is Botox Safe?

Yes, Botox injections are safe. The treatment has been reviewed extensively for safety, and the effects of Botox are presented fully before the patient proceeds. Some people may not be ideal candidates due to certain health conditions, so always disclose this information during your consultation.

Why Is It More Expensive Than Other Injections?

Botox is the original and best known brand name of Neuromodulators. As a result, it has undergone extensive testing for safety and effectiveness, which impacts cost. The cost of this treatment is based on both the experience level of the injector and cost per unit of Botox.

How Long Does Botox Last?

Botox results vary by individual, but the typical range is two to six months with the average being three to four months. However, lines and wrinkles do tend to remain less prominent after treatment, even once the results begin to wear off.

Does Botox Hurt?

Botox is non-invasive and does not require anesthesia. If you prefer, the technician can apply numbing cream or a cold pack to the Botox treatment area before the injections begin.

Can You Get Botox While Pregnant?

Studies have not revealed whether Botox is safe during pregnancy. The effects are in the injected muscles only and should not disperse throughout the body. If you have questions about Botox during pregnancy, you should consult with your physician.

How Many Units Of Botox Are Needed?

Several factors determine the number of units needed during your Botox treatments. The location of the injections and the skin’s current state are two of the primary considerations. Those who have had injections in the past may also need a different dose.

Are Botox Injections Bad For You?

No, Botox is not unsafe or inadequate for most individuals. Your personal medical history should be taken into account, but the effects are localized, and nerve signals are only temporarily blocked for most people. Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It remains where injected and does not roam throughout the body, so the effects are localized and do not have a systemic effect. It has been extensively tested and is generally safe, but dosage, frequency of treatment, and your medical history must be considered. The safest way to enjoy the benefits of Botox treatments is to receive services only from a licensed professional like Adam and Eve Medical Aesthetics.

How Long Does It Take For Botox to Work?

Botox does not show an effect immediately after the treatment. Patients typically see a marked improvement in lines and wrinkles within three to four days. These effects strengthen over the course of the next month and then remain stable for around four months.

Can You Get Botox Under Your Eyes?

Yes, you can get Botox in your eye area. People commonly choose Botox treatment to smooth the muscles responsible for crow’s feet.

Why Is Botox So Popular?

Botox is one of the most recognizable names in the industry. This non-surgical treatment provides fast, long-lasting, and effective results. Most patients report satisfaction after receiving Botox work and request future therapies. Learning more about the treatment will help you decide if Botox injections are the right solution for your concerns.
