Get the best BOTOX® results in Tempe at NEOS Med Spa
As we grow older, our faces start to show age in the form of lines and wrinkles. Fortunately, today there are affordable and virtually painless ways to look younger without surgery. These treatments instantly smooth away folds and wrinkles. BOTOX® injections works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause your skin to wrinkle and furrow causing lines. Over one million people have been treated since it was approved by the FDA in 2002. BOTOX® is most the affordable and effective treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases. BOTOX® is also a very effective, non-surgical solution for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). It blocks the excess nerve impulses that trigger the unnecessary production of sweat on the hands, face, or upper body areas. Ask us about the advantages of BOTOX® injections over surgery. Many people report they look 10 years younger after successful BOTOX® injections.
What to expect from BOTOX® Injections
Our injection specialists will consult with you to select a procedure and design a treatment schedule that fits your needs. Treatments are quick and easy and you should allow about 1 hour at our comfortable spa facility.
Fine needles are used to administer the injections to the area being treated. There is rarely any discomfort associated with these treatments.
You can return to work with no recovery time, as there are virtually no side effects. In the case of Botox, the results take 4-7 days to become fully visible and last from four to six months. Results for the other treatments are apparent immediately.
At NEOS Med Spa, we are committed to ensuring that you receive the safest and most gracious treatment with the best possible results.
If you don’t see the answer to a question you have, do not hesitate to call or message us for answers.
How does BOTOX® work?
When we frown, blink, or squint, small muscles contract which causes the skin tissue to fold and form small “dynamic” wrinkles. These wrinkles become more apparent as we get older and the skin becomes thinner and less supple. BOTOX® is a purified and diluted form of a protein that significantly reduces the nerve impulses to the small facial muscles, allowing them to relax and the dynamic wrinkles to be less apparent.
Can BOTOX® Injections be combined with other treatments?
In fact using BOTOX® with procedures such as laser procedures, microdermabrasion, photodynamic therapy with Levulan and dermal fillers such as Restylane® offer synergistic benefits for the absolute best results per a client’s needs.
How long do the effects of BOTOX® last?
Most people find that the BOTOX® effects begin from two days to two weeks following the procedure. The effects can last from 3 to 6 months. Most clients will receive 3 to 4 BOTOX® procedures per year.
Are there any common side effects from BOTOX®?
Adverse reactions are rare. The most common is slight bruising at the injection site which resolves in a day or two with proper aftercare. Occasionally BOTOX® may cause a facial asymmetry during expression or a drooping eyelid. This is very uncommon and will typically resolve in a few weeks.
Do BOTOX® injections hurt?
BOTOX® injections are performed with a very fine needle and cause very little pain with most patients. Placing ice on the skin before and after the injection makes this almost pain free for even the most sensitive patient.
What do I do before a BOTOX® Treatment?
One week prior to your procedure avoid taking aspirin, NSAIDs, St. John’s Wort, fish oil and high doses of Vitamin E supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence. Ask us about medications that may minimize such a recurrence.
What do I do after BOTOX® Treatment?
Immediately after the procedure the most common reported side effects are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days. Cold compresses may be used immediately after procedure to reduce swelling. If the inconvenience of post-procedure symptoms continues beyond two to three days or if other reactions occur, please contact NEOS Med Spa.
Avoid touching the treated area within six hours following your procedure. After that, you can safely use a gentle cleanser with water.
Avoid laying down for up to four hours.
Avoid exercise and alcohol for six hours.
Until the initial redness and swelling have resolved, avoid exposure of the treated area to intense heat (sunlamp or sunbathing).
