BOTOX® Q & A

Nouvé Med Spa

How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?

Wrinkles form due to repeated muscle contractions that occur when you make expressions, such as smiling or frowning. BOTOX is a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks the signal between the nerves and muscles, so wrinkles appear less obvious. BOTOX has been used for years, it’s been thoroughly tested, and it’s FDA-approved to treat facial wrinkles.

Where is BOTOX effective?

BOTOX injections work on crow’s feet, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal lines on the forehead. The aesthetic specialists at Nouvé Med Spa evaluate your face to determine exactly where you’d benefit from BOTOX application, so you get a more relaxed, softened, and youthful look.

Who should consider getting BOTOX?

Anyone bothered by the appearance of wrinkles and lines on their forehead and around their eyes is a candidate. You don’t have to be a certain age to get the injections. You may even choose to receive BOTOX injections as a preventive measure because by blocking the muscle action, you can stall the development of wrinkles and lines.

Do BOTOX injections hurt?

BOTOX injections do involve a fine needle prick and feel like a pinch. But treatments are brief and most people tolerate them quite well. If you’re worried about discomfort, talk to the staff at Nouvé Med Spa about applying ice or a numbing cream at treatment time.

When will I see the results of BOTOX and how long do those results last?

You’ll notice results within just a few days of treatment. Results last between three and four months. To maintain your new look, set up a treatment schedule with the providers at Nouvé Med Spa.

Is there any downtime associated with BOTOX?

You can get BOTOX injections at lunch and go right back to your regular activities following. You may experience slight redness or minor swelling at the sites of the injections, but side effects are minimal. Occasionally, the injections can cause mild bruising which can take a week or two to disappear. Discuss any concerns about side effects with the staff so that you understand the treatment in advance of the injections.
