Botox, a purified protein, temporarily smooths the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and on the forehead, as well as crow’s feet that are around the outside of the eyes. Botox is also clinically proven to treat hyperhidrosis, which causes some clients excessive uncomfortable sweating. Botox helps reduce and smooth away undesirable lines for a youthful and refreshed appearance. It can also be used to enhance the lips and eyes.
Our Botox treatments are administered in a simple non-surgical 15-30 minutes session, with no anesthesia required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes wrinkles to relax and soften. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
