How To Reduce Wrinkles, and Restore Youthful-Looking Skin
For most of our clients looking to reduce the visible signs of aging, and restore a youthfully smooth texture to their skin, we recommend Botox, Jeauveau, or dermal fillers. These are similar treatments, and what works best for you will depend on the types of wrinkles you have. For example, for deep wrinkles, dermal fillers are often the most effective.
It is essential that Botox, Jeauvenau, and dermal fillers are administered by trained professionals, like those at Xanadu Spa, Fort Collins.
We have a long history of happy clients, and our experienced and professional team knows how to work with these therapies safely and how to ensure long-lasting results. At your free consultation, we can assess your skin type and work out a treatment plan that fits your needs.
What Are Botox Injections?
Many people are surprised to find out that Botox is actually a neurotoxin, whose scientific name is Botulinum Toxin Type A.
Botox is the go-to treatment for many people looking to restore their youthful appearance, in fact over 7 million Botox injectables are administered every year in the United States.
How Do Botox Injections Work?
Botox is a neurotoxin, it is so effective because it works on your biological responses.
Your brain sends millions of signals throughout your body, some of these signals create involuntary movement in the eyes, mouth, and face muscles. Botox blocks these signals from reaching your face muscles, which prevents these minute movements and relaxes your face. This results in a smoother, softer expression on the face.
There is also evidence that Botox aids collagen production, which is essential for youthful skin.
What to Expect From Botox Injections?
Many people put off having Botox injections, despite longing for more youthful skin, because they are nervous about what to expect.
During the procedure, your practitioner will identify the desired areas and inject Botox. Although this could feel a little uncomfortable, you won’t need an anesthetic and the discomfort fades very quickly.
Afterward, there could be a little swelling around the injection site and some redness, but this usually fades within 20 minutes. If you are particularly sensitive you could experience bruising around the area that disappears within a couple of days.
How Long To See Results?
Botox starts working as soon as you get treatment, however, the neurotoxin takes some time to take hold and you will start to see amazing, noticeable results and disappearing frown lines after a few days, or a week at most.
How Long Do Botox Injections Last?
How long Botox cosmetic treatment lasts depends on several factors, such as:
- The quality of your practitioner.
- Whether you have had Botox before.
- The area you have treated.
- How fast your body metabolizes the toxin.
Typically our patients at Xanadu, Med Spa experience at least four months of optimal results, and most people return for more treatment every six months or so.
What Are the Side Effects of Botox?
- Mild pain around the injection area.
- Around 9% of people will experience headaches that last for up to 48 hours.
- Some people experience a drooping of the eyebrow (2%) or eyelid (2%). This is usually a result of rubbing the site.
- There may be a little bruising but it should fade within a couple of days.
- Your eyes may feel dry or tear up for 24 hours.
Are Botox Injections Safe?
Botox® injections are considered very safe and are even FDA approved. Botox® is common and has been used for many years.
However, it is still essential that Botox is administered by a trained and experienced practitioner. At Xanadu, we pride ourselves on the highest standards in both the products that we use and our staff.
Is There Downtime After Botox?
No downtime is required after Botox and most people carry on with their daily activities straight after their appointment. However, we do recommend that you avoid rubbing the treated areas for 24 hours and do not lie flat for at least two hours, to prevent the solution from spreading.
How Much Do Botox Cosmetic Treatment Cost in Loveland?
The cost of Botox depends on the areas that need to be treated, however, we will break down the cost in your free consultation so that you can make an informed choice and are not left with any surprises.
Who Should Not Get Botox?
Most people can get Botox, however, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding then you cannot get Botox. Additionally, people who are allergic to the protein in cow’s milk should stay clear.
Will Health Insurance Pay for Botox?
Botox isn’t usually covered by insurance, because it is cosmetic.
Other Benefits of Botox
Botox can also be used to treat certain medical conditions such as neck spasms and hyperhidrosis (excess sweating). However, if you are hoping to treat these conditions then you should speak to a healthcare professional.
