Botox injections can offer a wide range of benefits for many patients. While perhaps best known in the United States as an effective anti-aging treatment, Botox was first used to address medical conditions that affected the muscles around the eye. Today, Botox injections can be used to rejuvenate your facial appearance and offer long-lasting relief for patients with certain medical conditions caused by muscle spasms or contractions. Aspire MedSpa & Beauty Bar provides expertly administered Botox in Tampa.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic injection with FDA approval for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. While it’s FDA-approved for a few dynamic wrinkles on the face, it can also be used for numerous other expression lines and facial creases. Botox injections can temporarily paralyze the facial muscles responsible for your expression lines and smooth away the unwanted wrinkles. The results gradually appear over 2 weeks and last for up to 4 months.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox belongs to a category of cosmetic injections known as neuromodulators. These are cosmetic injections made of the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, a special protein that can block the transmission of signals between nerve endings and specific muscles. Dynamic wrinkles usually appear because of the overuse of certain facial muscles to produce expressions, such as laughing and frowning. When injected into targeted areas, our treatments of Botox in Tampa can relax the overactive facial muscles and suppress the unwanted expression lines.
Benefits of Botox:
- Non-surgical treatment — no incisions or scarring
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Concludes within 15 to 30 minutes
- No downtime or recovery period
- Correct unwanted dynamic wrinkles
- Naturalized results without signs of cosmetic work
Side Effects of Botox
The most common side effects experienced include some pain or bruising at the site of the injections. Some patients may also experience flu-like symptoms, headaches, nausea, or muscle soreness. In very rare cases, it is possible for Botox to spread beyond its normal dispersion area, which can result in muscle weakness, vision issues, or difficulty swallowing. These potential side effects make it important for patients to find experienced providers, like those at Aspire MedSpa & Beauty Bar.
What Results Can Be Expected?
The results of your Botox in Tampa will gradually appear over 2 weeks. You might start seeing improvements after 3 to 4 days, but the results will finalize after about 2 weeks, so you must be patient. The final results generally last for 3 to 4 months, depending on your body’s metabolism. After the results dissipate, you can opt for maintenance treatments to maintain a youthful appearance throughout the year. Most patients ask for 3 Botox treatments per year.
