Botox is an injection that contains a purified neurotoxin made by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. When injected in small amounts into specific areas of the skin, the neurotoxin temporarily stops the transmission of nerve signals to the brain to get the desired results.
Greene Emerald Med Spa uses Dysport® for Botox injections.
Botox treats many conditions, from migraines to excessive sweating. But most people know Botox best for its cosmetic uses, treating:
These lines and wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles. They form from repetitive facial expressions that cause the skin to fold and crease. As you get older, your skin loses its natural elasticity and strength, making it harder for your skin to smooth out the lines that form from the repeated folding.
Botox prevents muscle movement and the skin from contracting. This gives your skin time to relax and naturally smooth itself out.
Before you start Botox injections at Greene Emerald Med Spa, you meet with one of the skilled providers for a consultation. They review your concerns and goals and examine your skin. Then, they talk to you about your treatment options, which may include Botox.
Botox is a quick and relatively painless cosmetic treatment. While you relax in the spa chair, your provider cleans your skin and then carefully injects small amounts of Botox into very specific areas of your face. You may need five or more injections, depending on the severity of your lines and wrinkles.
You can resume most of your usual activities after your Botox injections at Greene Emerald Med Spa. However, you should avoid excessive physical activity for at least two hours.
Though some people notice improvements in their look within a day or two, it can take up to 30 days to see the full results from your Botox treatments*. Botox lasts up to four months* and you can repeat your injections as soon as you notice the effects wearing off.
Regular Botox injections may also help prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
