Our Botox clinicians are licensed and experienced at administering Botox in the comfort of your home or in Mobile Meraki's luxury beauty coach. A Botox treatment generally takes half an hour. It may take up to a week before you see the treatment to start to take affect. A single treatment generally last three months after which you can continue additional treatments to maintain the smoothness of your skin.
What Areas Can BOTOX Treat?
Commonly treated areas include the following:
BOTOX is derived from a natural nerve blocker, botulinum toxin type A. The active ingredient prevents targeted muscles from receiving the message to move. Synthesized in a safe and highly regulated environment, this agent can be placed into selected muscles of facial expression to temporarily inhibit their movement.
When injected correctly, BOTOX can relax these muscles and reduce facial wrinkles and folds that contribute to an aged appearance. Only a highly trained professional can accomplish this while preserving facial expressions and keeping the overall result subtle, powerful, and enhancing.
Once you decide to proceed with treatment, we will carefully analyze your face and devise a comprehensive treatment plan that takes on a global approach. We will suggest very specific refinements to enhance your beauty without the worry of surgery or downtime. Using a very small needle, we inject the product into targeted areas. The entire treatment session can take as little as 10 to 15 minutes, and many patients are able to return to work after their treatment.
Every patient experience is different, but in our experience, there is rarely much discomfort, and redness at the injection sites is expected to subside within an hour. Bruising is infrequent, but when present can last for a few days and be camouflaged with makeup. The treatment takes effect between 3 and 7 days after injection, and the results can last up to 6 months.
Patients interested in continuing the look provided by BOTOX can return for maintenance treatments every few months, if desired. Our team will explain the minimum time allowed between injections, depending on the region treated and the number of units used to achieve the desired effect. Over time, some patients find that fewer injections are necessary to get the results they seek, as their muscles as “trained” to relax by the regular injections.
Dysport is a newer alternative to BOTOX and is used in a similar way to treat wrinkles in the face. Both products are neurotoxins and contain the same active ingredient: botulinum toxin type A. The notable differences are:
Put simply, BOTOX is considered a safe treatment, with millions of injections administered to great success each year.
BOTOX gained worldwide recognition for its cosmetic applications, but before that, the injectable had long been used as a safe and effective solution to a variety of medical problems. Its health-based applications include treatment for chronic migraines, overactive bladders, muscle spasms, and more. As a cosmetic treatment, BOTOX has been rigorously studied as the subject of clinical trials and years of worldwide use. Reported side effects included eyelid drooping in just 3 percent of the patients who participated in frown line studies and eyelid swelling in 1 percent of the patients who participated in crow’s feet studies.
If patients report side effects in relation to BOTOX, they are typically minimal and temporary and include dry mouth or eyes, injection site pain or discomfort, headaches, or blurred or double vision.
