Botox is Now Being Used For Body Contouring

Botox is Now Being Used For Body Contouring

Botox 

Botox is the latest way to sculpt your body without the need to go under the knife. There are several uses for Botox besides being a popular way for smoothing out facial wrinkles. Botulinum toxin, according to experts is used frequently for off-label purposes in several countries. It is used for body contouring and muscle slimming.

Off-label uses have gained increased traction in the US as more and more people are turning towards minimally invasive contouring options. Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox injectable body contouring treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox medical spa injections used for body contouring are different from the ones used on the face. Botox is an intramuscular injection that goes deep into the skin. The purpose is not to paralyze the muscle but to atrophy it. Atrophied muscles are thinner in nature. This makes the targeted look more defined and slimmer.

You may require a large supply of Botox to achieve these muscle slimming effects. The time frame for results is similar to what you would acquire in the face, which is about two weeks. However, it is possible that complete results may take anywhere up to 8 weeks to manifest completely since the injection is being administered in deeper layers.

Effects of Botox are likely to last longer in the body as compared to the face. This is usually 6 months as opposed to 3 to 4 months. Initial soreness and weakness may be possible in the injection site as far as side effects go. However, these effects are temporary in nature and would dissipate quickly.

These are a few areas where Botox for body are common and effective:

The Shoulders

You can make your shoulders appear more elongated by injecting Botox in the shoulder muscles running all the way from the neck to the middle of the back. This muscle group is also called trapezius muscles. Botox in the shoulders can help reduce shoulder pain. This is similar to the way the injections work in the jaw for reducing pain from teeth grinding or TMJ.

The Calves

Women with overly bulky calves are usually the ones that come in for the procedure. Women tend to aspire for slimmer calves. Botox for calves is injected into the gastrocnemius muscle. This is the muscle running all the way from the knee to the heel on the backside of the leg. The neurotoxin is injected on the side or back of this muscle group. You will notice a slimmer calf contour after the first treatment. However, subsequent treatments may make the effects more noticeable.

The Thighs

Dermal fillers are often used for smoothening cellulite dimples. However, Botox med spa injections can also be used for improving the look of the legs. Botox can be administered in the quadricep for reshaping the contour of the thigh and minimizing the frontal thigh bulge.

Liquid Rhinoplasty With Fillers – Non-Surgical

Non-Surgical Nose Job

Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is also called a 15-minute nose job or liquid nose job. Nonsurgical rhinoplasty is a dermal filler procedure which involves changing the shape of the nose. Results in this procedure can last anywhere from a few months to years.

The procedure is suitable for people looking to smooth out nose bumps and make it less angular. It is also ideal for people that don’t want a permanent solution or are worried about the recovery time and risks involved in traditional rhinoplasty.

While getting an injectable is less risky as compared to getting a surgery, modifying the shape of your nose is never completely risk-free. Motykie Med Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides non-surgical filler rhinoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

How Does Liquid Rhinoplasty Work?

Dermal filler ingredients are used in nonsurgical med spa rhinoplasty for changing the shape of your nose. Hyaluronic acid or another gel-like injectable is inserted beneath the skin in areas where you want to create volume or smoother lines. Botox is also used in some cases.

The filler would settle wherever it is injected deep within the skin layer and hold its shape. The look of your nose can be changed for anywhere from 4 months to 3 years depending on the ingredient used and your skin.

Targeted Areas of Liquid Rhinoplasty

Liquid rhinoplasty works towards targeting the tip, bridge and sides of the nose. Your nose can be modified by injecting fillers in any part of it. The procedure can help:

  • Smoothen small bumps in the nose
  • Make the nose tip more prominent
  • Add volume to the nose
  • Lift your nose’s tip

In addition, medical spa liquid rhinoplasty can smooth a bump on the nose bridge and camouflage it as long as it is mildly prominent. This can help contour the nose profile. You may not get desired results from liquid rhinoplasty if you want to take care of prominent bumps or make the nose look smaller.

What to Expect from the Procedure?

The filler rhinoplasty procedure is fairly simple and straightforward. It compares well to surgical rhinoplasty. The doctor will ask you to lie down with the face tilted upwards. They may apply a topical anesthetic to the nose and surrounding areas so that you don’t feel any pain from the injectable.

Your doctor will inject the dermal filler in the targeted area once the anesthetic takes effect. You may feel a slight pressure or pinching when this is done. The entire process doesn’t take more than 15 – 45 minutes.

Things to Expect After the Treatment

You may experience swelling, minor pain and redness where the injection is inserted. However, the injection would begin settling down within an hour or two and the redness should subside then. This is when you would be able to see the desired results in a much better manner. Complete results should be fully visible within 1 – 2 weeks.
