At AVIE!, we are honored to spend our days helping our amazing clients (that’s you!) see and appreciate their unique, natural beauty with proven treatments like Botox®. Loved by millions around the world, Botox is a proven age-defying treatment that we’re fairly certain you’re aware of. Still, we bet there’s a few things about Botox you don’t know!
Here’s some few fun facts about Botox, plus expert treatment tips for best results.
Botox is FDA-cleared to treat moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows.
These are some of the first places we tend to notice signs of aging. Botox works by relaxing muscles in these areas that cause wrinkles due to their constant movement. Once your targeted muscles are relaxed, your skin naturally smooths out to reveal a years-younger, intensely refreshed look within a couple of weeks following your treatment.
Consultations and follow-ups are essential.
When you schedule a personal consultation at AVIE!, you will have the benefit of working one-on-one with our medical staff to evaluate your skin type and aesthetic goals, and we will help you develop a treatment regimen suited to your specific needs. No two Botox treatments are alike because no two patients are alike! Consultations and follow-ups with your injector, even for Botox regulars, will ensure that you are getting the highest quality results possible with every session.
Make sure your injector is a master!
To ensure you receive the best treatment, it’s important to confirm that your injector is qualified as a trained, licensed medical professional. Years of experience is a big help, as well. Remember to avoid the urge to go with a “cheaper” provider. Just because a provider is cheaper, does NOT mean they’re good! At AVIE!, we take the time and effort to make sure Botox treatments are done right and administered by highly skilled and experienced injectors — because you deserve the very best. Botox always requires a thorough consult to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks the chemical acetylcholine from transmitting the message from the nerve to the muscle to contract, thus relaxing the muscles that cause common facial wrinkles. Botox is safe for all skin types. The main contraindications for Botox are pregnancy, nursing, and neuromuscular diseases.
