BOTOX/ dysport or “botulinum toxin A” is a neurotoxin complex used to relax targeted muscles. It’s injected directly into the muscle to induce this reaction. Botulinum Toxin injections help ease stressed muscles, relaxing the facial muscle underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance. When injected into specific muscles, it causes them to relax, soften and no longer contract. Botox is quick and requires no anesthesia or downtime.
Our trained nurse practitioner analyzes the skin, muscle, and nerve impulses before completing the procedure. Once injected, nerve impulses in the muscle are blocked with this purified protein.
Patients with deep, creased wrinkles or “dynamic wrinkles” require immediate attention. BOTOX aids in targeting these naturally produced wrinkles. As the muscle(s) relax, the skin begins to smooth out and regain elasticity.
BOTOX aids patients with upper facial wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet (corners of eyes).
Botulinum Toxin can not only fix the wrinkles but can also be used for calves slimming, shoulder slimming and jaw slimming.
Types of wrinkles include:
Dynamic Wrinkles:Created by muscle movement (smiling, crying, laughing)
Static Wrinkles:Created without movement as the skin ages and loses elasticity.
Under the supervision of a trained specialist, the BOTOX injection will not eliminate the use of one’s facial muscles nor will it inhibit one’s smile. The technique provides a smoothing effect without preventing natural movement.
This is a world-leading procedure and millions of cases are completed around the world. It’s a dynamic, top of the line procedure perfect for all candidates.

Ideal Candidate for BOTOX
In general, the clinic will examine a patient before determining the appropriate course of action. An ideal candidate is someone with fine lines/wrinkles between the ages of 18 and 65.
After the consultation with a certified nurse specialist, we will create a treatment plan just for you. First, the nurse injector will have to know your medical history, treatment goals, treatment areas, and all related details. The injection areas are observed to pinpoint ideal injection sites and anatomical features.
All injections are completed with a small needle to minimize pain/discomfort. This treatment will conclude in less than 5-10 minutes depending on the number of target areas.
Remain upright for 4 hours after injection (you may lie in a reclined position, just do not lay flat).
Exaggerate facial expressions in injected areas for 1 hour after injection.
f bruising appears, apply ice to area for 15 minutes every hour to decrease bruising.
Avoid alcohol and smoking for 24hours post treatment.
Refrain from using ibuprofen, aspirin, fish oil supplements, or vitamin E for 24 hours following injection.
The most common side effect is headache with Botox injections. You may use Tylenol to relieve this. If you are a chronic headache sufferer and have prescription headache medication, you may take it as prescribed by your doctor.
It is not recommended to apply make-up for 12 hours after treatment.
Once the treatment is completed, patients are given post-procedure guidelines. These details illustrate all after-care requirements at home.
The injectionist will analyze the surface of the skin to pinpoint potential redness, swelling, and/or irritation. If present, an ointment is provided to help it settle. With the help of a certified injectionist, all post-treatment issues last no more than a few hours.
The initial results will appear once the skin settles (24-48 hours). All long-term results appear 1-2 weeks after the session is completed and should last 3-5 months.
Please note, each patient is unique and these dates can vary.
The skin will go back to how it was if another injection isn’t completed in 3-5 months. However, patients display longer lasting results with each additional injection as the skin trains itself to stay put.
Side effects of BOTOX
While a certified injectionist reduces any chance of side effects, it’s best to keep note of what each procedure entails.
Side effects can include pain/discomfort, fatigue, headaches, droopy eye(s), and allergic reactions.
In most cases, these are mild and disappear in no more than a few hours.
Patients are recommended and will be asked to state all medical conditions before the procedure including allergies, muscle conditions, nerve conditions, and pregnancies. The injectionist will also inquire about previous BOTOX injections, facial surgeries, and current medications.
