Botox 101: Everything You Need to Know

Ajeless Health and Medical Spa is pleased to offer Botox, the anti-aging solution celebrities love. The minimally invasive cosmetic injectable continues to grow in popularity as a highly effective solution to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles, with noticeable, lasting results. Here’s all you need to know about Botox and what it can do for you!

What Is Botox?

Botox is a neuromodulator derived from the botulinum toxin type A that is FDA-approved for cosmetic use, virtually erasing millions of wrinkles worldwide. When injected, it blocks nerve signals to targeted muscles, softening dynamic lines and wrinkles that result from repeated muscle contractions. Botox is ideal for treating crow’s feet, worry lines, forehead lines, and frown lines. The wrinkle relaxer will leave you looking refreshed and youthful with subtle, beautifully natural results. 

What Can You Expect During Treatment?

Our expert providers will discuss your needs and goals. They will perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas to deliver your desired results. 

Our providers inject Botox into targeted muscles with ultra-fine needles, with minimal to no pain or discomfort. Some individuals describe what feels like a mild pinching sensation. We are always happy to apply a topical anesthetic cream or use ice to numb the treatment area for your comfort. Botox treatment requires no downtime, meaning you can return to your daily activities right after treatment. 

What Results Can You Expect?

After about 3-5 days, you should start seeing an improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Treatment outcomes typically take around 14 days to take full effect, with results lasting 3-5 months. You’ll need regular touch-up treatments to continue enjoying a wrinkle-free complexion. However, with time and repeated treatment, your muscles will become trained to relax, requiring less future maintenance. 

If you’re opting for Botox treatment in preparation for a special occasion, we recommend booking an appointment at least two weeks in advance to look and feel your best. Even younger users are amazed at the difference a Botox treatment can make. 

Botox Treatment Aftercare

Botox is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment with no downtime required. It comes with a very low risk of serious complications. Minor side effects may include mild swelling or redness at the injection site, which typically resolve soon after treatment without intervention. 

It’s important to avoid lying down for the first four hours after your Botox treatment and avoid exercise for 24 hours. You’ll need to wait 10-14 days before having any facials done, lying face down for a massage, or wearing a baseball cap. If you have any questions or concerns in the days following your treatment, make sure to let us know.
