Relive Your Youthfulness with Botox Treatment
As you age, your face may develop wrinkles, crow’s feet, and fine lines that can significantly interfere with your youthful appearance. Luckily, the medical field has discovered Botox injections that address signs of aging and other medical concerns like cervical dystonia. If you are interested in getting Botox treatment, your Santa Clarita, CA board certified physician at Mind Body Infusion MedSpa should be your ultimate choice.
What is Botox?
Botox refers to cosmetic injections that inhibit the movement of muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections contain onobotulinumtoxinA, which paralyzes specific muscles or blocks certain nerves. The effects of these injections last for about three months to twelve months, based on the area of treatment. You can always go for another Botox treatment session after the effects wear out to maintain your youthful appearance for an extended period.
What conditions can botox injections address?
The skilled team at Mind Body Infusion Med Spa uses Botox injections for cosmetic purposes, such as smoothing out wrinkles, crows’ feet, and fine lines. Other conditions that botox can treat apart from worry lines across your forehead and crow’s feet include:
· Lazy eye
· Cervical dystonia
· Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating)
· Muscle contractures due to neurological conditions like cerebral palsy
· Bladder dysfunction or urinary incontinence
· Chronic migraine
· Eye twitching
Botox guarantees excellent results that will amaze you and your family members. The treatment does not change your facial structures, it reduces signs of aging, helping you relive your youthfulness.
What are the common side effects of botox?
Botox injections are usually safe and rarely cause any complications. However, there are a few cases that may display the following side effects:
· Flu-like symptoms or headache
· Pain, mild bruising, or swelling at the area of treatment
· Crooked smile
· Cockeyed eyebrows or droopy eyelids
· Excessive tearing or eye dryness
Call your doctor or visit the nearest hospital if you notice any of the following side effects:
· Vision problems
· Loss of bladder control
· Muscle weakness
· Trouble speaking
· Breathing problems
The above complications rarely happen, but if you experience them, do not hesitate to inform your provider. The team at Mind Body Infusion Med Spa does not recommend Botox for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. It is also not an advisable treatment for people allergic to cow’s milk protein.
What should you expect during Botox treatment?
Before the procedure, the Mind Body Infusion Med Spa team numbs your skin to prevent you from experiencing any discomfort. They may use topical anesthesia or ice and vibration anesthesia to minimize discomfort. During the treatment, your provider injects a tiny amount of botulinum into the target area. The number of injections depends on the extent of the target area. After the procedure, do not rub the treatment area for 24 hours to prevent the spread of the toxin to the surrounding areas. You are free to embark on your daily activities immediately after the procedure. You should start noticing results one to three days after the procedure.
