Botox


What is Botox?

Botox has the ability to relax muscles into which it is injected. This relaxation may be partial or complete, depending on the amount of Botox used and on the relative strength of the muscle into which it is injected. The relaxation produced by Botox can last up to 3-6 months

Which wrinkles can Botox treat?
There are two different types of wrinkles on the face: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present even with complete stillness and lack of expression on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear or become significantly more apparent with facial expression. Botox is ideal for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of the face and is used to relax those facial muscles whose excessive action causes wrinkling of the skin. For example, the deep lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) are the most popular treatment sites.

Other areas which can be improved with Botox are the crow's feet and the horizontal forehead lines. Because of Vivianne’s skill and experience, neckbands, certain lip lines, smile lines along the side of the nose, and droopy corners of the mouth may also be improved with Botox.

Who is a candidate for Botox?
Any person who wishes to minimize the aging process around the eyes and forehead region with minimal down time is an appropriate candidate for Botox injections. Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or are nursing.

What other cosmetic treatments may be combined with Botox?
One of the greatest combination treatments involves the simultaneous use of Botox and Restylane. With this combo treatment, an "instant face lift" may be achieved by using Botox in the brow and forehead region, and Restylane around the mouth, lips, and smile lines.

Does it hurt?
Typically no anesthetic is needed for Botox injections. A small amount of Botox is administered using a very fine needle. Most patients experience very minimal discomfort. Anesthetic creams and special cooling devices are available to increase your comfort.

How long will the results last?
Typically, it takes 4-5 days for the Botox to start to take effect, but it may take up to 2 weeks for its full effect. Results generally last between 3-6 months. As you notice the effects of the Botox wearing off call us and schedule your next appointment. We offer Botox treatments during regular office hours and can often accommodate you on the same day that you call.
BOTOX® is one of the most exciting advances for the treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. BOTOX Cosmetic is a nonsurgical treatment that can minimize dynamic wrinkles, which most often appears as fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and brow, or at the outer corners of the eyes.   BOTOX® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. It works by blocking nerve impulses to between the brows. This relaxation generally lasts for 3-4 months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition. BOTOX® does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation, so there is no numbness in the treated areas. This is done in a way to not alter your natural expression and features.

BOTOX®, introduced in 2002, is the first botulinum toxin to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows. With real, noticeable results, no surgery and no recovery time, there are many reasons why over 11.8 million BOTOX® procedures have been performed since 2002. Patient satisfaction with the results of their Botox® treatment is 92%. If you would like to smooth out your fine lines and wrinkles come to Vintage Wellness and find out if Botox® is right for you.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment consists of a series of gentle, small injections into specific facial muscles, typically at the outer corners of your eyes or on your forehead and brow. The treatment takes place in our office, usually less than 30 minutes to complete, and you will not need anesthesia or pain medication. These treatments can be done easily-during your lunch hour-with virtually no downtime, and the results can be dramatic. BOTOX Cosmetic has been used for more than 10 years to reduce facial lines and wrinkles without surgery.

Botox injections are used to reduce wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Clients request Botox to have a more relaxed refreshed appearance.  Botox wrinkle treatment is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections for relaxing lines and wrinkles.

No anesthesia is required.  Although you may see a marked improvement, a treatment with Botox Cosmetic does not make you look like you have “had work done”.  You can expect to see results within 5 to 10 days after your treatment, and the visible results will last 3 to 4 months. Vintage Wellness will help you determine which options are best for you.  For some clients several dermal fillers and Botox injections are used at once to obtain the desired effects.  Interested in learning more about Botox?
