Lose the lines. Fast.

Smooth, clear skin is a key feature of beauty and youth. As much as we would like to maintain our youthful appearance, facial lines and wrinkles are bound to appear over time. The best way to slow down the effects of aging is to receive one or more facial rejuvenation procedures. Fortunately, today there are a number of simple, minimally-invasive treatments that do not require surgery or anesthesia. A variety of injectables have the ability to reduce wrinkles without surgery and produce amazing, long-lasting results. One of the most widely-used and effective is Botox.

Botox is one of the most popular injectable treatments at Acqua Medspa.

What Can BOTOX Treat?

BOTOX Cosmetic is used to treat wrinkles and folds in the skin that are a result of muscle contraction. These facial lines occur with normal facial movements and expressions such as smiling, frowning, and squinting. They are commonly seen in the forehead, between the eyes, and on the outside of the eyes. With continued use, your muscles start to create folds within the skin that appear every time you frown or smile. Over time, these lines may become deep set and more obvious. Botox can effectively treat the forehead, frown and smile lines, areas on the neck, and “smokers lines” above the lips. It can also be used to elevate the outside of the eyebrow.

How Does BOTOX Work?

Botox is comprised of botulinum toxin A which can relax muscles and prevent them from contracting. The injections work by temporarily blocking the nerves that tell facial muscles to move. When the muscles don’t contract, wrinkles do not form.

Your ACQUA Botox specialist will gently administer a series of injections directly into the facial muscles causing the wrinkles. The procedure takes just a few minutes to complete and there is minimal discomfort. Although most patients notice a difference in their skin after two or three days, it may take up to two weeks to see the full results of your treatment.

After treatment with BOTOX, your skin will appear smoother, with less wrinkles. You will look younger and refreshed for several months, at which point you can choose to undergo re-treatment to maintain your results. For optimal effects, we recommend having Botox treatments every 3-4 months. Over time, as you continue to receive BOTOX injections, your muscles will adapt to the treatment and may require fewer units to produce the desired effect.

How Do You Know If BOTOX Is Right for You?

BOTOX is recommended for individuals who are exhibiting mild to moderate signs of facial aging due to normal facial movements and expressions. It can also be used by younger patients in their twenties, as a preventative measure to stop wrinkles before they have a chance to form.

As a minimally invasive treatment option, BOTOX is an excellent way to look more youthful and beautiful without making dramatic changes to your overall appearance. The results appear very natural. Patients who receive BOTOX must have realistic expectations and understand that their treatment is only temporary. To maintain the optimal appearance, follow-up injections will be necessary.

Scheduling a consultation at Acqua MedSpa is the best way to find out whether you would benefit from BOTOX treatment. You will discuss the areas of concern and your injection specialist will determine the ideal treatment plan and the number of units recommended for a particular treatment zone. She will explain exactly what you can expect during your treatment and organize a customized regimen for you.

At Acqua MedSpa, our injectors have years of experience administering injectables and understand how to create beautiful, natural-looking results. Our goal is to enhance your beauty, not create an entirely new aesthetic. Your technician will place each injection with precision so that you receive a beautiful, subtle improvement.

Are There Any Side Effects?

BOTOX injections are extremely safe and have minimal side effects, which is one reason why the treatments are so appealing. Patients may experience some swelling around the injection site along with some redness, which should resolve on its own after a few hours. Occasionally a patient may experience bruising that could last for several days. If you have bruising after the injection, this can be covered up with cosmetics. Some patients may require a “touch up” to adjust the treatment dosage to improve the effect or symmetry.
Almost all patients who undergo treatment return to their daily routine the very next day.
