BOTOX, or Botulinum Toxin, is an injectable neurotoxin treatment that targets the deep-set lines on your face, most commonly on the forehead, frown lines, and crow's feet. These common cosmetic skin flaws develop as you age, due to years spent making normal facial expressions. You can use Botox to prevent lines from deepening, and stop their appearance altogether. We can also erase the bunny nose lines, give a mini lip plump, reduce gummy smiles, and calm down your jaw and neck muscles, to name a few more. If you’ve got wrinkles that bother you, Botox is a really great way to get quick results. To erase the appearance of lines and wrinkles, BOTOX temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for creating forehead lines and crow's feet. Using precise injections into certain areas of your face, BOTOX helps to relax the muscles and smooth out your skin in the treatment area. It is not permanent, and causes no permanent side effects, once the muscle regains it’s function. Botox is an easy and very low risk cosmetic treatment, that our patients really love to have. Here at Gentle Revive, we never water down our Botox, and we guarantee beautiful results. For added cost benefit, we also have a membership program that will lower your cost per units, making it easy for you to keep your youthful skin.
After about age 25, your body starts to produce less and less collagen. Collagen is an important protein that is a building block of healthy skin, and without enough of it, your facial features change and lose volume. This causes your skin to sag and wrinkles to form, which makes you look older than your years. MaryAnn Chapman, Nurse Injector, can use fillers to improve the volume in your face and enhance its natural contours. Fillers are an ideal treatment option for achieving results like:
Botox and Fillers FAQs
Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin, and that sounds bad. Is it?
A neurotoxin stops the signal from the brain to the muscle, so when your brain says “furrow your brows” BOTOX blocks that impulse, and your muscle doesn’t get that message. When the muscles don’t contract, the skin covering the muscles don’t crease, and you don’t form or deepen lines, and your skin becomes more and more smooth. Because it is temporary, when it wears off, you will resume normal expressing. There are no long term side effects.
What happens if I use BOTOX a lot?
When you use it a lot, you won’t form lines and wrinkles in the areas you use it. Your muscles will relax more and more, you will be able to go more time between treatments because your BOTOX treatments will last longer. Whenever you stop using BOTOX your muscles will quickly resume their natural strength and function, as there are no long term side effects of BOTOX. As soon as it wears off, it is as though you are taking the pause button off wrinkle formation.
How do fillers differ from BOTOX?
Fillers are also injectable treatments to address wrinkles and lines. However, unlike BOTOX, fillers provide added volume to smooth out wrinkles and creases, and correct lack or loss of volume in any areas you are concerned about. Based on a treatment plan she customizes specifically for you, MaryAnn ensures your results look just as natural as you want to look.
Do BOTOX and fillers hurt?
Treatments with BOTOX and fillers require no incisions, and most patients are able to tolerate Botox injections very well. MaryAnn can provide a topical anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout treatment. Immediately after your injections, you can return to work or your other activities without any side effects or limitations. While some mild bruising and redness at the injection site can be common, these issues resolve on their own without any additional treatment.
