Botox Q & A
What is Botox®?
Botox is an injectable treatment used for both cosmetic and medical reasons. It’s the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, allowing millions of older adults to enjoy fewer wrinkles and lines as they age.
The active ingredient in Botox, called botulinum toxin, is a highly potent poison found naturally. In high amounts, it can make you very ill. However, it’s also proven to be very useful in medicine.
When injected into your muscles, Botox temporarily paralyzes them to prevent them from contracting. Botox works to relax and smooth the wrinkles and lines that form as a result of systematic muscle contractions.
How can Botox improve my appearance?
Botox is approved for several cosmetic uses that you can take advantage of at Pacific Medispa & Regenerative Medicine. It can reduce the appearance of:
- Frown lines between your eyebrows
- Crow’s feet (lines by your eyes)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Lip lines
- Neck bands
You can also explore Botox as a medical treatment option for migraines, excessive sweating, eyelid spasms, and more.
Am I a good candidate for Botox injections?
Before your Botox injections, your provider determines whether you’re a candidate for the treatment. You may be eligible if:
- You have moderate to severe wrinkles you’d like to target
- You’re generally in good health
- You have realistic expectations
- You’re not allergic to the product
- You’re not pregnant
- You don’t have a skin condition near the treatment area
If you’re eligible, the next step is to pinpoint your targeted areas and make an appointment for your injections. If Botox isn’t the best option for you, the team at Pacific Medispa & Regenerative Medicine can help you find other options to help you meet your goals.
Are Botox injections safe?
The active ingredient in Botox may be poisonous in its natural form, but Botox injections are very safe when correctly injected by a trained professional like those at Pacific Medispa & Regenerative Medicine.
As long as the toxin doesn’t go directly into your bloodstream, you’ll enjoy your desired results, and you won’t be in any danger. However, there are a few potential side effects to be aware of, including:
- Facial asymmetry
Before your appointment, your provider at Pacific Medispa & Regenerative Medicine will answer all of your questions and can further explain your risk of side effects. They will also provide you with instructions for aftercare that may reduce any adverse effects. If the side effects persist or worsen, you should call right away.
If you want fewer wrinkles and lines, call the office or schedule an appointment online for Botox today.
Does Botox help treat headaches?
Botox prevents migraines and headaches before they start. The treatments take around 20 minutes, and you usually schedule repeated treatments every 12 weeks.
Your provider carefully uses a very fine needle to inject minute amounts of Botox into the shallow muscles in your skin and around the pain fibers that are associated with your headaches. Each treatment involves approximately 31 injections in seven key areas of your neck and head for optimal pain relief. Don't just deal with unwanted headaches when Pacific Medical Group has viable solutions.
