Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

The team at Kamala Aesthetics use Botox, which is an FDA-approved injectable botulinum toxin, to reduce or eliminate moderate to severe:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet lines
  • Wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Forehead lines

 

The reason botulinum toxin works to reduce facial lines is because Botox stops nerve impulses from causing facial muscle contractions. These contractions pull the skin during laughter or frowning, for example, causing wrinkles to develop over time. Stopping the muscle movements allows wrinkles to soften and appear less defined.

Botox is noninvasive but produces dramatic results that make you look years younger. It is safe for all skin and pigment types and is the perfect anti-aging procedure when used in combination with facials.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

When you arrive for a Botox appointment, your practitioner cleans the injection site and administers a Botox injection (using a very fine microneedle) into an area of facial lines. This may feel like a small bug bite, but the pain is minimal due to the small needle size.

Your practitioner works closely with you to achieve the most natural-looking, personalized results to exceed your expectations at each appointment.

What happens after Botox injections?

After Botox injections, you are able to resume low impact activities. However, you should not lay lown for six hours, refrain from alcohol, and avoid heavy exercise for 24 hours. After treatment, you may notice at the injection site:

  • Redness
  • Temporary swelling
  • Slight bruising
  • Numbness
  • A rash
  • A mild headache

 

These side effects are normal, but you can apply an ice pack to the affected area to relieve swelling, redness, and discomfort.

You may notice the effects of Botox injections within three to five days, but it can take up to 10 days to achieve desired results. Make your next Botox appointment within three to four months, or when facial muscles regain activity.

When you’re ready to restore a youthful appearance to look years younger and gain the self-confidence you deserve, call the team at Kamala Aesthetics to learn more about Botox or book an appointment online today.
