We have Botox:
Botox is a neurotoxic protein used for its cosmetic benefits. It temporarily reduces muscle activity, smoothing wrinkles and fine lines for a refreshed appearance. A popular choice for a non-surgical approach to a youthful look. – “Still you. But with fewer lines.”
What is Botox?
Botox, short for Botulinum Toxin, is a neurotoxic protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It functions by temporarily blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it’s injected. This temporary paralysis inhibits muscle contraction, effectively smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.
How is it used?
Primarily known for its cosmetic applications, Botox is used to diminish facial wrinkles and create a more youthful appearance. Beyond aesthetics, it also finds applications in treating various medical conditions, such as muscle spasms, migraines, and excessive sweating.
Smooth Frown Lines
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Botox expertly smooths frown lines by temporarily relaxing facial muscles through targeted nerve signal blocking.
Reduce & Prevent Facial Wrinkles
To diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that are usually the underlying cause of wrinkles. This causes the muscles to relax around the injection site, making the skin smooth again and reducing the amount of wrinkles.
BOTOX® prevents headaches and migraine attacks before they even start. BOTOX® prevents, on average, 8 to 9 headache days and migraine/probable migraine days a month (vs 6 to 7 for placebo).
Stop Excessive Sweating
Sometimes antiperspirant just doesn’t cut it. BOTOX® not only helps with the effects of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), but it can also reverse the effects of stress sweat as well by blocking acetylcholine – the chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands.
Diminish Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet occur as we age and lose the natural elasticity inherent to youthful skin. Nobody is immune to signs of aging, but certain factors can cause deeper lines and wrinkles, such as sun exposure, a loss of collagen, or smoking. BOTOX® injections are a common outpatient procedure to help treat crow’s feet.

How many units will I need?
Unlocking the full potential of a Botox treatment involves a personalized approach tailored to your unique aesthetic aspirations. While the safety limit stands at 100 units per session, the magic lies in how these units are strategically distributed to address your specific needs. On average, individuals tackling moderate concerns typically opt for around 50 units, equivalent to one and a half vials of Botox, per session. Delving into specific areas becomes an art, with factors like line depth and frequency influencing the customized unit count, such as starting at 30 units for newbies and potentially reducing to 10 for regulars.
Botox, offers a versatile solution for fine lines and wrinkles across various facial areas. Determining the right amount of Botox depends on factors like the type, severity, and location of the wrinkle in question.

What is a session like?
Each session unfolds in distinct stages, spanning approximately 15 to 30 minutes. To optimize the process, a fresh canvas is essential—please arrive makeup and product-free. If preferred, we offer the option of applying a numbing cream for a comfortable experience.
Our skilled aestheticians orchestrate the next phase, expertly administering small injections across facial muscles. The number of injections varies per facial zone, ensuring precise delivery of the required units. For instance, addressing dynamic wrinkles on the forehead necessitates around five injections dispersed strategically among different forehead muscles. As these injections conclude, so does your session.
When will I see results?
The outcomes of this treatment will not manifest immediately, with visible results anticipated within seven to ten days post-treatment. The delay is attributed to the time required for the neurotoxin to settle into the skin’s muscles and initiate its effects. The complete results should be apparent within two weeks of your treatment appointment.
Specific instructions for post-treatment care, including any recommended facial massage techniques, will be provided during your aftercare consultation.
How long do results last?
Typically, the effects of this treatment endure for a span of three to four months. The longevity of your results is influenced by factors such as the frequency of your previous Botox treatments and your individual biological response. First-time recipients may experience results persisting closer to three months, whereas individuals with prior Botox usage might enjoy effects extending beyond the four-month mark..
