Botox – an Introduction
Beginning with the first step of a thorough analysis, we will walk you through all the available options and form a treatment plan that not only provides the best fit for your needs, but botox ensures superior results as well.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® is FDA approved and the most popular way to reduce wrinkles on the face. This simple, non-invasive and pain free procedure smooths frown lines, crow’s feet, furrows on the forehead and skin bands on the neck to create a refreshed, less tired more youthful appearance! It is a quick five minute procedure with no down time that can easily be performed during the lunch hour.
Who Will Inject My Botox Treatment?
At True Laser Spa, your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will be administered by an advanced trained and licensed Nurse. Injections of Botox® Cosmetic are quick, comfortable and performed with no down time in the comfort of our True Laser Spa.
Does It Hurt to Get Injected?
Most people find the injections almost painless, so a local anesthetic is not normally needed. If concerned however, you can request an anesthetic (numbing) cream prior to treatment.
The treatment session typically lasts less than five minutes with full effect taking several days as the muscles gradually relax.
Will I Still Be Able to Make Facial Expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you appear as if you’ve “had work done.”
How Long Does It Last?
BOTOX® Cosmetic can take seven to ten days for treatment to set in, and visible results have been shown to last up to four months. Personal results will vary.

Botox can be used in the treatment of:
- Chronic migraines
- Facial wrinkles
- Anti aging lines
- Uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm)
- Lazy eye
Botox – How It Works
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing human muscle activity. It does this by blocking brain signals that are carried from the nerves to the muscles. The muscle (area treated by Botox) would no longer be able to contract or expand. When it comes to cosmetic anti aging, this means facial wrinkles significantly relax and soften when treated with Botox.
For cosmetic purposes, Botox is most often used to treat the following signs of anti-aging:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet (aging lines that form around the eye)
- Frown lines
- Most facial wrinkles (any wrinkles resulting from sun damage and/or gravity don’t respond to Botox treatments)
Botox Procedure – What to Expect?
Receiving Botox injections requires only a few minutes and can be done in the comfort of your cosmetic professional’s clinic. No anesthesia is required and, since Botox is injected with a fine needle into acute areas of muscle, there’s little-to-no discomfort.
The results usually take about a week to fully show and it’s always best to steer clear from any alcoholic drinks during that time, which would otherwise risk negating the treatment’s effects.
Moreover, Motrin, Aspirin, and other anti-inflammatory drugs should be discontinued two weeks before Botox treatment (in order to minimize bruising).
As with any medical procedure, you should always consult with a doctor or experienced cosmetic health professional if you’re considering Botox treatment.
Side Effects of Botox
The most common side effect of Botox treatments is light bruising. In addition, moderate-to-severe headaches can occur 24-48 hours after undergoing Botox treatments (although this is rare). A tiny percentage of patients that undergo Botox may also develop eyelid drooping, which usually results from a patient moving around too much or lying down during the first 3-4 hours after undergoing Botox injections..
Who Shouldn’t Receive Botox
Anyone experiencing pregnancy, breastfeeding, or any type of mental or neurological illness should not receive Botox injections. Since Botox works differently for different people, it’s important you undergo a consultation appointment with a doctor or cosmetic health professional before undergoing any sort of Botox treatment.
