Botox

Experience smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin with our advanced neuromodulator treatments.

What is Botox?
 

Botox is a neurotoxin derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected in small, controlled doses, it temporarily relaxes facial muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  Please not that Botox is a brand name.  Other neuromodulators offered at Acqua & Sapone Beauty include Dysport, Daxxify, and Jeauveau and they all work in the same way.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it's injected. This causes the muscles to relax, smoothing out wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming.

What areas can be treated with botox?

Forehead Lines:  Neuromodulators can smooth out horizontal lines on the forehead, giving a more youthful and relaxed appearance.

Glabellar Lines (Frown Lines):  By targeting the muscles between the eyebrows, neuromodulators can soften the appearance of frown lines, creating a more refreshed look.

Crow's Feet:  Neuromodulators can diminish the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, helping to restore a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

Bunny Lines:  These are the lines that appear on the sides of the nose when you scrunch it up. Neuromodulators can help smooth these lines for a more refined look.

Jawline Slimming:  By injecting neuromodulators into the masseter muscles, the jawline can be slimmed and contoured for a more defined appearance.

Neck Bands:  Neuromodulators can be used to relax the muscles in the neck, reducing the appearance of vertical neck bands and creating a smoother neck profile.

Is Botox safe?

When administered by a qualified healthcare professional, Botox is considered safe. However, it's important to disclose your medical history and any medications you are taking to ensure it's safe for you.

 

How long does Botox last?

The effects of Botox typically last around 3-4 months. However, individual results may vary based on metabolism and the specific treatment area.

 

Does Botox have any side effects?

Common side effects may include temporary bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site. Rarely, some individuals may experience headaches or drooping eyelids, which are usually temporary and resolve on their own.

 

How soon will I see results after getting Botox?

You may start to notice the effects of Botox within a few days, with full results appearing within 1-2 weeks after the treatment.

 

Can I combine Botox with other cosmetic treatments?

Yes, Botox can be combined with dermal fillers, laser treatments, or other cosmetic procedures to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the face.
