What crosses your mind when you look in the mirror? Maybe you feel like you’ve lost a little of your sparkle. Maybe you’ve started to think about how a few improvements here and there could make a difference. 

After a while, everyone’s skin becomes susceptible to sagging, lines, and wrinkles — and for many people, that’s a problem. When those first signs of aging begin to show it can be easy to become disheartened, but BOTOX can help greatly.

What is BOTOX? 

By now, everyone has heard of BOTOX, but not everyone has tried it. Still one of the most popular anti-aging treatments available,   has been recognized for over a hundred years, and has been used for medical issues for more than fifty years. 

BOTOX is an injectable that is used to treat a wide variety of issues, but it is especially effective for correcting:

  • The “angry 11s” between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines

BOTOX can also limit the number of future wrinkles by preventing them before they become too pronounced. This is why BOTOX is so popular with younger millennial patients. By getting BOTOX treatments at an earlier age, wrinkles and lines won’t be able to form as they naturally would. This means getting less treatments in the future.

How BOTOX Treatments Work

BOTOX goes underneath the surface of the skin to target the underlying muscle activity that causes unwanted lines. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, causing the injected muscle to no longer contract. This makes the lines and wrinkles relax, which results in a more softened, more refreshed appearance. Contact BeauxMD for BOTOX in McKinney.

BOTOX Treatments and Results

To prepare for your BOTOX treatment, you’ll need to stop taking any blood thinners a week before your appointment. 

During your BOTOX treatment in the Allen TX area, one of our licensed and trained nurses will precisely administer the injection with a very small needle, always taking the care to produce a conservative, natural outcome. BOTOX sessions take very little time, making it a very convenient treatment. 

In the days following your BOTOX treatment, you’ll need to:

  • Be very gentle when applying makeup
  • Avoid sleeping on your face 
  • Avoid rubbing your face
  • Avoid bending over
  • Avoid tanning
  • Avoid heavy exercise 
  • Avoid hot showers, saunas, hot tubs, and baths

Results from your BOTOX treatment will be visible anywhere from 3 to 12 days after your procedure. The effects will last around 3-5 months.

*Please consult with your doctor if you are taking blood thinners, as these may need to be discontinued prior to treatment.

What is a “Unit” of BOTOX?

You’ve probably seen BOTOX specials or heard people talking about how many “units” to get. If you’re not sure what this is, a unit is a measurement of the biological activity and potency of the BOTOX. It’s measured this way instead of being measured by a fixed weight or volume. A good way to visualize a unit is this: a standard medical vial can contain 100 units.

Are there Any Risks?

The only risks that come with BOTOX is when the person administering it doesn’t know what they’re doing. If the person you choose has been properly trained, there are virtually no risks. However, someone who is not familiar with administering BOTOX might over-inject, or inject into the wrong area. This can result in drooping or a lopsided appearance.

This may sound alarming, but keep in mind: if your BOTOX doctor is skilled and experienced, this will not be a problem. Highly trained medical professionals like our team at BeauxMD will not make these mistakes. It is very important to be careful when selecting your BOTOX specialist.
