Botox Injections: Botox in Lakeland FL
When you smile, laugh, or frown, the delicate facial muscles underneath your skin contract. Unfortunately, these repetitive muscle contractions can produce permanent furrows or wrinkles in the skin over time. DayDreams Day Spa & Med Spa is proud to offer BOTOX to treat these wrinkles in our Lakeland, Florida clinic.
What are Botox injections?
BOTOX Cosmetic (or Botulinum Toxin Type A) was approved by the FDA in 2002 and is the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure to treat facial lines and wrinkles. BOTOX injections combat the signs of aging by temporarily causing the muscles beneath the injection site to relax. Frown lines, crow’s feet, and other minor facial wrinkles appear less noticeable through this treatment. Overall, your skin will appear smoother and more refreshed. BOTOX can also soften necklines, elevate the corners of the mouth, and reduce excessive sweating.
Areas That Can Be Treated With BOTOX:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Frown Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Under-Eye Lines
- Marionette Lines
FAQs for Botox Cosmetic Treatment
What is Botox Made Of?
Botox is made from a toxin produced by bacteria called the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In small doses, it can safely be used to treat health problems.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
The ideal candidates for BOTOX treatment are those who wish to see an improvement in their facial lines and wrinkles but do not want to undergo invasive facial surgery. In only a few minutes, BOTOX injections are complete, and there is no recovery period, and normal activities can be resumed immediately.
Is There Any Pain?
Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is utilized, the pain associated with the injections is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite.
What Not to Do After Botox?
After a Botox treatment, you should not rub your face or wash your face for at least six hours. While washing your face and applying moisturizer are both good for skin health, you must take some time to let the medicine absorb and settle into the skin. You also shouldn’t lay on your face, and you should avoid heat and sun for at least 24 hours after the injection. The sun and heat can cause inflammation which can cause redness and swelling. You should also avoid strenuous exercise for at least a day to allow the Botox to correctly settle into the muscles and nerves.
What Are DayDreams Botox Treatments Like?
Like all medical procedures at DayDreams, we always start with a half-hour medical consultation. During the consultation, our healthcare provider will review your medical history, your aesthetic goals and model your face in 3D. For Botox® treatments, we use a fine micro-needle to inject a small amount of Botox® into targeted locations on the face. No anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office.
How Long Do the Botox Effects Last?
You can expect to begin to see results in as little as 4 days. The effect on frown lines, facial wrinkles, and crow's feet can be seen for 3 to 6 months after treatment. Lines and wrinkles will reappear as the relaxing effects of the Botox begin to fade. However, muscle memory has been trained to relax, so the lines can appear less severe upon reappearance.
