Botox injections are made from the bacterium clostridium botulinum. The microbe creates the botulinum toxin that weakens muscles and blocks signals from your nerves to your muscles. When injected into certain muscles in diluted, safe, small doses, Botox temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. When injected into the face, your muscles can’t contract, and your wrinkles relax and soften.
Botox injections are most commonly used to diminish wrinkles, including crow's-feet, forehead furrows, and frown lines. The Studio Saai Skincare and Medspa team provide Botox to address a range of cosmetic concerns, such as:
Botox can also be used to treat more functional problems, such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), repetitive neck spasms (cervical dystonia), and an overactive bladder. Botox injections can also treat chronic migraines.
Your Studio Saai Skincare and Medspa specialist injects Botox with a fine needle. Most people don’t report any discomfort, but there might be some mild and tolerable discomfort. Botox only takes a few minutes in-office.
Most adults are good candidates for Botox. During your consultation, your specialist can answer your questions and help you decide on the best aesthetic treatments for you.
If you’re a good candidate for Botox, you should avoid alcohol for a few days and aspirin for two weeks before your treatment to decrease any possible bruising.
If you’re breastfeeding or pregnant or have a neurological disease, you’re not a good candidate for Botox.
Following your Botox treatment, there’s no downtime and you can return to your daily activities right away. Most people don’t experience any symptoms. You might have a mild headache that subsides shortly or mild bruising that usually goes away within 24 to 48 hours.
Make sure you don’t irritate or rub the treated area for at least 12 hours following your treatment.
Botox allows you to achieve younger-looking skin without losing the ability to express your natural emotions and facial expressions. The results of your Botox treatment should be visible within 24 to 48 hours and can last for around four months or longer.
Over time, your muscle function comes back, and your wrinkles might also come back. Additional Botox treatments allow you to maintain your desired look and smoother, firmer skin. Even though wrinkles can return with Botox, they’re never typically as visible and prominent as they were before your treatments.
