Reasons to Choose Xanadu Med Spa For Your Botox® Injections:
What Is Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.
Botox is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent obtained from a bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. For more than a decade, ophthalmologists have used Botox to treat blepharospasm (abnormal blinking of the eyelids). Doctors have also used Botox for many years to safely reduce the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles.
The movements and contractions of facial muscles are controlled by signals from our brain. Botox keeps the muscles from responding to the signals. Consequently, the muscles relax, and the skin remains smooth and unwrinkled. Unlike a face lift or other kind of invasive facial rejuvenation procedure, treatment takes minutes and requires zero downtime. Using a very fine needle, BOTOX® is injected into the facial muscles that are responsible for unsightly wrinkles and fine lines and relaxes the muscles. The ingredients in Botox block the signal from the nerve to the muscle, and therefore reduce its ability to contract.
Our team of highly qualified medical professionals are here to help you get the results that you are looking for!
Once You Get It, You Really Get It.
With an ultra-fine needle, Botox is injected into certain muscles responsible for making facial expressions. By relaxing these specific muscles, the wrinkle and lines they cause disappear. You’ll still be able to smile, laugh and be expressive but your skin will be smoother and your wrinkles drastically reduced. So when you think of Botox, think crow’s feet, forehead lines and angry looking creases between your eyebrows. Honestly, we love it. What’s more, you can get Botox in Fort Collins at Xanadu, administered by experts at a reasonable cost.
There are many physicians’ offices that are injecting Botox, Jeuveau (Newtox), Xeomin and Dysport. Why come to us?
Experience combined with artistry- You will benefit from an injectable plan designed personally for you by one of our skilled medical team. The injectable consultation is free and patients find it very helpful. It requires a unique blend of artistry and science, as well as the need to stay current. Consequently, our team has trained with and observed the leaders in this field. Patients routinely comment on their caring manner and the fabulous results they are able to achieve.
Pricing that makes sense- Botox and Jeuveau are both distributed in a powder form intended to be mixed by the person doing the injections. Because it is expensive, variations in price can be attributed to different dilutions or the actual amounts injected. Many patients have told us they were disappointed in wrinkle-relaxing injections that were not done in our office. We do not over dilute our solutions. That is very important! And, we will provide a courtesy follow up visit to ensure you get the results you want.
Botox in our Fort Collins Med Spa is applied via a brief injection into the affected tissue. The procedure is done in the doctor’s office and the majority of patients have no problem resuming their routines immediately after the procedure. Many patients even return to work after leaving the doctor’s office!
While the area does not need to be numbed during the procedure, many patients request to have it numbed. In these cases, the doctor can apply a prescription numbing cream approximately 60 minutes prior to the procedure, or inject the area with a numbing agent. After the numbing effect is achieved, Botox is administered to the tissue via a fine needle. The Botox injection process itself is completed within a matter of minutes.
How Do We Decide How Many Units Of Botox To Use?
First and most importantly, we sit down with you to discuss your desired results. Then we take into consideration your age, sex, and the areas that need treatment. As noted above, the number of units varies between patients and will be thoroughly explained during your consultation.
Below is a list of the approximate number of units used to treat each type of condition. *Please keep in mind that the number of units may vary depending on the age, sex, anatomy, and physiology of the individual. Results may vary. This will give you a rough idea.
Horizontal Forehead Lines: 8-16 units Glabella or Frown Lines: 12-30 units Lateral Brow Lift: 2-3 units Crows Feet: 8-16 units (per side) Bunny Lines: 3-6 units Upper Lip Lines: 4-8 units Masseter: 15-25 units (per side) Chin: 4-6 units Neck: 20-30 units Hyperhidrosis of the Axilla: 50 units (per axilla)
Because Botox administration is non-invasive, patients are discharged shortly after the procedure is finished; there is no downtime! Some patients do experience muscle weakness temporarily and their upper eyelid muscles may droop. However, these side effects usually disappear just days after the procedure.
Jeauveau, otherwise known as Newtox is the newest FDA approved neuromodulator on the market. It is made through a modern manufacturing process and is the first product of it kind dedicated exclusively to aesthetics.
Jeuveau prevents your nerves from teling your facial muscles to flex. The result? In clinical trials, Jeuveau was shown to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. In 2 long-term safety studies, patients received an average of 3 treatments over the course of a year.
It’s nice to have choices. Whether you want Botox or Jeuveau, Xanadu Med Spa is here to help you achieve that wrinkle free look you desire!
