Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable cosmetic treatment that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles — those wrinkles you can’t avoid when you make certain facial expressions. Botox diminishes the following conditions:

  • Crow’s feet wrinkles
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Lip Lines
  • Neck bands
  • Bunny lines (on top and side of the nose)
  • Chin pucker “peau d'orange” condition
  • Gummy smiles
  • Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating)*
  • Chronic Migraines*
  • Eye twitches*
  • Help with depression*
  • Reducing calf size*
  • And so much more

How does Botox really work?

Botox is a purified protein derived from botulinum toxin. When injected Botox migrates to the nerve synapses and weakens or stops signals from our brains to move muscles. Botox doesn’t enter muscles. Botox simply blocks the nerve’s signals from getting to the muscle. As a result, the muscle relaxes and stops contracting. Botox lasts 3-6 and diminishes, or eliminates, any wrinkles associated with muscle movement. While the muscles are in a relaxed state, the skin over the muscles has a smoother appearance.


What can I expect from the procedure?

After your skin and facial wrinkles are evaluated, and your questions answered, your Practitioner at Revive Wellness Center injects precise doses of Botox directly into the area associated with the wrinkles being treated.

Revive’s practitioners use the smallest insulin syringes and needles so the treatment is comfortable. The treatment only takes 10-20 minutes, depending on how many injections are necessary and the number of wrinkles being treated. After your session is complete, you can return to your normal daily activities, but you should avoid strenuous activity for about 24 hours.


When will you see results?

You’ll notice the improvement in your appearance in about 3-7 days after treatment. Botox slowly gets metabolized so the results aren’t permanent. Everyone is different but Botox usually lasts 3-6 months.

When the effect wears off, you can get another treatment to maintain the same smooth and youthful appearance. Over time, you may notice that you can go longer between treatments as your muscles are trained to stay relaxed.


Does Botox affect your facial expressions?

You can get rid of wrinkles and still be confident that you can laugh, smile, or even frown just like always. In the hands of the experts at Revive Wellness Center, Botox effectively diminishes wrinkles while you maintain all your natural expressions.

Only a few specific muscles are carefully injected with a precise dose, so the impact of Botox is limited to muscles that affect the targeted wrinkles. You won’t lose any feeling, and the rest of your face will move naturally as you laugh, frown, and express emotions.


Is Botox used to treat other conditions?

Botox’s ability to block nerve signals helps treat these conditions:  

  • Hyperhidrosis (severe underarm sweating): Injected areas stop producing sweat for nearly seven months.
  • Chronic migraine: Two treatments every 12 weeks prevent headaches and migraines.
  • Blepharospasm: Abnormal eyelid spasms are stopped for about three months with one treatment.
