Four Things We Love About Botox
Looking your best starts with beautiful skin. As wrinkles start to creep up, Botox and facial fillers are popular solutions to maintain a youthful, flawless appearance. With the breakthrough of Botox in the late 1980s, people have realized the benefits of this fundamental, age-fighting cosmetic procedure.
Due to it’s amazing anti-aging affects, it’s no wonder our Birmingham, MI Med Spa has so many repeat Botox clients! Here are four reasons our patients love Botox!
Botox is the #1 cosmetic, non-surgical procedure performed in the world.
Botox type injections were the most popular method of non-surgical, facial wrinkle treatment used in the world in 2017, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. In fact, The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that Botox and similar brands, were used for over 7.2 million procedures – while other injectable dermal fillers were only used in 4.5 million treatments. In 2016, Botox-type injections surpassed other injectables by nearly half.
There is little to no risk of side effects when a Doctor or Nurse does the procedure.
Botox is extremely well researched and extremely safe when administered by a licenced medical professional. Having an experienced Botox doctor or nurse, like those at our Birmingham, MI Med Spa, means there is little to no risk of side effects. Botulinum toxin A is the active ingredient in Botox and is a naturally occurring protein that helps muscles relax.
If this is your first time using Botox, discuss with Dr. Ali or the nurse the possibility of using the smallest, effective dose to get accustomed and comfortable with the procedure. As with any medical procedure, in order to minimize risk and prevent unexpected drug interactions, inform the doctor of any and all medications, supplements or health issues before getting Botox injections.
Botox will NOT cause “frozen” face.
Botox will deliver beautiful, smooth, natural results when administered by an experienced, trained Botox medical professional.
Using the proper location for each injection, and the correct Botox dosage, is the key to a youthful look that doesn’t hinder your facial expressions or cause the face to look stiff. Choosing a licensed medical provider, like Birmingham, MI board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali, ensures that you will get the beautiful “age defying” results you want.
Botox injections only takes a few minutes.
In our Birmingham, MI Med Spa a Botox treatment only takes about 30 minutes. It’s quick, simple and will not interfere with your day. Since Botox does not cause redness or swelling, normal activity can follow your appointment. Right after a Botox treatment, clients can run errands, pick up kids from school, or go back to work.
A Botox procedure can fit into any busy schedule! Keep in mind that perspiring and elevated blood pressure can affect the best outcome, so doctors recommend not scheduling a Botox treatment immediately before and after exercise.
