Have you ever been asked, “why are you always mad?”, even when you’re happy? Do wrinkles have you praying the Fountain of Youth exists? Well, it doesn’t, but Botox does, and it’s the next best thing! If you’re already a Botox user, you know first hand how truly amazing it is. If you’re considering Botox, here are some things you should know. First and foremost, it’s VERY safe. You may have read otherwise, (the internet is a scary place), but the sensational claims concerning Botox are unfounded. The safety record is extraordinary and it’s literally safer than aspirin. Long before Botox was used for wrinkles, it was treating a number of other medical conditions. Today it’s used for migraines, overactive bladder, muscles spasms, excessive sweating, etc., with new discoveries being made every day. Feel better? Good, because Botox injections are one of the most affordable, fastest working, safe and effective non-surgical aging treatments available, with over 5 million injections done annually in the U.S. (It’s the number one treatment performed at REJUV AVE). However, we cannot emphasize enough how important technique and experience is. The muscular anatomy of the face is very complex and injections can easily be placed incorrectly. Our master injectors have extensive knowledge, expertise, and training, and strive to ensure you get the desired result. The appointment is quick (about 15 minutes) and painless. (OK, a few little pokes). An ultra-fine needle is used to inject minuscule amounts of Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) into targeted areas (the forehead, the area between the eyes, and crow’s feet) and blocks signals between the nerves and muscles, causing the muscles to relax and soften. You won’t look frozen, (we don’t do that) and you will still be expressive, natural looking and refreshed. The onset of Botox is gradual – it usually takes 3 to 5 days to see some subtle results, but by day 14 the correction is complete. At this time a touch-up / tweak can be done if needed. Botox typically lasts 3 to 4 months but individual results may vary. Three treatments a year usually works well to keep you smooth and wrinkle free. If you stop getting injections, muscle activity will simply return to its original state. But why would you? Who doesn’t want to look younger and feel better about themselves? The one regret we consistently hear? “Why did I wait so long?” Live without regrets, call to schedule an appointment and see if Botox is right for you.
