What is Botox?
Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. At La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga, your provider utilizes botulinum neurotoxin A therapy to decrease the appearance of:
The team at La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga are aesthetic specialists and can talk to you about the many uses of botulinum neurotoxin A and how it may help you achieve your beauty goals.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that create lines and wrinkles. When you make a facial expression, your skin folds with the muscle movement.
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, which is the structural protein that provides strength and elasticity. Without collagen, your skin is unable to smooth out the creases created by your facial expressions leaving behind the lines and wrinkles.
By temporarily halting muscle movement, Botox prevents your skin from folding and allows the lines and wrinkles to relax and smooth out.
What can I expect during Botox injections?
Your Botox injections are performed at the medical spa and only take a few minutes. Your aesthetic specialist at La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga carefully injects small amounts of botulinum neurotoxin A into specific muscles under your skin to get the desired results. You may feel a slight pinching sensation during the injection, but the pain is minimal and fleeting.
The number of injections needed depends on the area, or areas, undergoing treatment. Your provider develops your personalized treatment plan before the injections, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.
Downtime is unnecessary following Botox injections, but your beauty specialist advises you to wait at least two hours before engaging in strenuous physical activity.
You should start to notice an improvement in your look within 3-7 days after your injections.
How long will Botox results last?
Your Botox injections may keep your lines and wrinkles away for up to four months. The team at La Mer Medical Spa & Yoga recommends you return to the medical spa as soon as you notice the effects of your Botox wearing off so they can provide repeat injections.
