Botox Q & A

How does Botox® work?

Botox is a neuromodulator injectable that contains a purified form of a naturally occurring toxin. This solution prevents cell signaling involved in muscle movements, including contracting and twitching, so skin can smooth out and wrinkles can resolve quickly.

But Botox is only designed to be injected into specific muscles. This way, surrounding muscles can function as normal and you can continue to make your usual facial expressions. No need to worry about a frozen look.

As an alternative to Botox, you may opt for Dysport®, which is another type of neuromodulator injectable. Both types of anti-aging treatments work similarly, but one may be more effective over the other, depending on your unique needs.  

What can I expect from Botox®?

Botox (as well as Dysport) involves making just a few small injections over a targeted area. To ensure you’re entirely comfortable during your visit, your skin care expert at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa may recommend coming in early to apply a topical numbing cream. Typically clients report feeling a small pinch from the needle.

All you have to do is lie back and relax during your appointment as your aesthetician walks you through each step. Botox quickly goes to work to target lines, grooves, and wrinkles that leave you feeling uncomfortable about your skin. Your Botox treatment is ideal for:

  • Getting rid of frown lines between your brows
  • Smoothing out forehead lines
  • Softening crow’s feet

Because your Botox service at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa is entirely personalized to your specific concerns, you may be able to have other areas treated, or even add on dermal fillers (including Juvéderm®).

When will I have results with Botox®?

Botox, as well as Dysport, is entirely fast-acting. You may find that you have a little redness or soreness at the injection sites, although these minor side effects often fade away within a few hours.  

While you may start noticing that your skin is smoother and younger-looking than ever before the same day as your treatment at SkinReMEDI by Natural Body Spa, in most cases, optimal results occur within about 24-48 hours.
