Fast and easy wrinkle reduction and prevention with BOTOX®
There are many effective ways to treat wrinkles once they appear, but what if you could, at the same time, prevent wrinkles from forming?
BOTOX® is a trusted treatment that can dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent wrinkles with a minimally invasive office procedure that requires little to no downtime or recovery.
With just a few injections, you can see smoother skin and a more relaxed, fresh appearance. Additionally, because BOTOX® works below the skin's surface, you can pair it with your favorite peels, laser treatments and products to optimize your new, younger-looking self.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an anti-wrinkle treatment that uses injections of the botulinum toxin to temporarily improve moderate to severe "furrow" lines between the eyebrows, lines on the forehead, and "crow's feet" around the eyes.
How does BOTOX® work?
Wrinkles at the skin's surface are caused by repeated muscle motion beneath the skin. When you raise your eyebrows, smile, squint, or make just about any facial expression, the muscles of the face move and crease the skin above. When the skin is creased repeatedly over time by repetitive muscle motion, the wrinkles that form remain visible even when the underlying movement has stopped.
BOTOX® temporarily minimizes and paralyzes the muscles beneath the surface to limit wrinkle-causing motion. Wrinkles are improved and prevented.
BOTOX® is most commonly used on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes. It is especially effective in improving and preventing deeper wrinkles that may not respond to treatments that only target the surface layers of skin.
What are the benefits of BOTOX®?
BOTOX® has been used safely and successfully to treat and prevent wrinkles for millions of people, both women and men. When administered by the expert team at Harmony Healing, BOTOX® provides dramatic results and smoother, younger- looking skin.
Because it works in the muscles below the skin's surface, it is possible to use BOTOX® in concert with other facial treatments for wrinkles and discoloration, such as dermaplaning, peels, or laser rejuvenation. It helps your favorite treatments last longer and your products work more effectively by getting to the root cause of wrinkles.
When it comes to safety and side effects, BOTOX® is time-tested, non-invasive and is FDA approved for preventing wrinkles and improving the appearance of existing wrinkles.
It is a low maintenance way to look your best, every day.
What can I expect during BOTOX® treatment?
During your consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
The day of your treatment, we may use ice or a topical numbing cream before administering BOTOX® injections. Depending on the treatment area, you will receive several injections to the muscle groups that are causing wrinkles.
Most people report little pain or discomfort during the injection process, which takes only about 10 minutes for most treatments.
What can I expect after BOTOX® treatment?
After BOTOX® treatment, there is minimal downtime or recovery, and you can return immediately to your normal daily routine.
Minor side effects, such as slight bruising or swelling, are temporary. We will customize your treatment for optimal results with minimal side effects.
When will I see results? How long does BOTOX® last?
You may see some results immediately as the muscles are relaxed and will notice improvements in moderate to severe wrinkles within 24 to 48 hours. The results last up to four months for most patients. Our trained, licensed aestheticians administer BOTOX® to achieve the most effective and longest-lasting results.
During your consultation, we will discuss your medical history and other factors that could affect the results and side effects of BOTOX®.
Will my face look frozen after BOTOX® treatment?
One concern of those who are exploring BOTOX® is the "frozen face" phenomenon associated with the early days of BOTOX® treatment. While your expressions will be somewhat toned-down, treatment has come a long way in determining the right amount of BOTOX® to use and the best placement of injections for natural-looking results. Our expert team has been trained in the best BOTOX® protocols to give you the results that you want.
At your Harmony Healing consultation, we will discuss all of your options, including BOTOX®, and create a customized skin care treatment plan to keep you looking your best, long-term.
