Botox is the world’s most popular non-surgical injectable procedure to reduce aging effects from the face. This FDA approved med spa procedure can create safe, quick, and desirable outcomes as long as it is performed by a trained and experienced Botox provider. Motykie medical spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides Botox to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Reduction of Aging Lines
Botox injections are designed to soften the impact of mild to moderate wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in areas such as the forehead, between the brows, and around the corners of the eyes, which are known as crow’s feet. The botulinum neurotoxin will cut off the communication between the wrinkle forming muscle and the nerve, causing near-instant relaxation of the muscle and fading away of the wrinkles on the surface.
Individual results of Botox at a qualified med spa can vary depending on the extent of treatment and the specific nature of wrinkles and lines. For instance, the treatment will work faster on smaller wrinkles such as a small appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes, but will take more volume of Botox and more time to treat deeper wrinkles on the forehead.
Many Botox providers use Botox to treat facial aging lines even in non-label areas with successful results. The results are safe and predictable as long as the procedure is performed by a certified Botox expert. However, if administered wrongly or in wrong quantities, it can have adverse cosmetic consequences for the face.
How Soon the Results will Show?
It will usually take anywhere between two days to two weeks for the Botox injections to take effect. Initial results can be seen in about two days, but the full effects may be established only in about one to two weeks. This much time is required because the body reacts gradually to the effects of the neurotoxin.
Patient response varies depending on their age, the underlying strength of targeted facial muscles, and the degree and depth of the wrinkles. If the facial muscles are fairly strong, it will take longer to see the results. Deeper lines may not flatten out completely, particularly in case of older patients.
In some cases, the treatment provider may begin with a minimum number of Botox injections on a new patient to review the effects. The treatment may be topped up in a month’s time if necessary. If no significant results are seen in about two weeks, it may be necessary to adjust the dosage. With repeat treatments over a period of time, the Botox provider will know the individual patient response and arrive at the precise dosage that works for them.
Longevity of Results
The effects of Botox will usually last from about three to six months. Over time the enzymes released by the body will disintegrate and remove the toxin, and as a result, the muscle movement will gradually re-start and wrinkles will reappear. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Botox injections.
