Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX Cosmetic

Glow Medispa is your premier destination for BOTOX treatments. Before running out the front door for your first treatment, though, let's start by answering the most common questions about BOTOX Cosmetic.

What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic, in scientific terms, is a purified protein made from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. In each treatment, these highly purified toxins are administered through a series of small injections into areas of skin showing wrinkles and other signs of aging. They are highly effective at slowing down our constantly contracting muscles, thereby temporarily erasing or reducing horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, crow's feet, and other wrinkles.

Are the Benefits of BOTOX Exclusive to Treating Wrinkles?

Besides treating wrinkles, BOTOX can also be used to lift certain areas of the skin that sag with age, such as the corners of your mouth. It can also smooth out chins, reduce smoker's lines, and soften neck cords. Botox can also be used to treat bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) and excessive sweating of the arm pits and hands.

How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?

BOTOX delivers a purified protein to block the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles it's injected into. As a result, it decreases the activity levels of these muscles and inhibits the wrinkle-forming process.

How Long Do BOTOX Treatments Take?

BOTOX treatments are relatively quick, with the injection process taking only about 10 minutes. How long the results of your treatment will last will vary slightly according to your goals and areas you treat.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

After a successful treatment, you will notice results within the first few days, but the full effect of Botox takes 1-2 weeks to fully set in.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

One of the many advantages of BOTOX is its minimal recovery time. You can expect to be back to your daily schedule as soon as you leave the office.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

The effects will last up to three to four months, meaning regular treatments are advised for the best results. After three to four months without treatment, frown lines and wrinkles may gradually return to their pre-treatment states.

Does Botox cosmetic Cause Numbness?

A common misconception is that BOTOX treatments result in numbness or a loss in sensation. However, with an experienced doctor, this is not the case. At Glow Medispa we have the skill and experience to accurately judge the size of a patient's muscles and gauge the ideal amount of BOTOX. Our meticulous procedures will leave you looking and feeling younger without any numbness afterward.

Is Treatment Available for Men?

Absolutely! In the last two decades, the number of men receiving cosmetic treatments has more than tripled. BOTOX is used widely by both men and women to treat crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Glow Medispa is happy to accommodate the needs of both men and women.
