As women age, the skin loses elasticity and collagen, which helps it retain a youthful appearance. As one matures, they may find forehead lines, drooping eyelids, and frown lines unseemly. That is where BOTOX® cosmetic comes in.

How Does BOTOX® Work?

Botox is injected into the muscles of your face so they are no longer able to contract: repeated contraction of these muscles cause fine lines and, essentially, reflect your daily schedule. For example, those who smile a lot throughout the day may develop smile lines and those who squint can get crow’s feet. Most patients experience fewer wrinkles while enjoying normal facial expressions — your face won’t be frozen.

BOTOX® was recognized by the FDA in 1989, then approved for cosmetic use in 2002. It is currently administered in 98 countries with over 13 million vials sold.

The Basics Of BOTOX®

As mentioned above, Botox is an injection treatment provided by our med spa that can mask the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. This non-invasive affordable procedure can easily fit into anyone’s schedule and is perfect for any skin tone or gender. Enhance your natural beauty with Botox.

How Does BOTOX® Work And What Is Treatment Like?

Botox is a cosmetic procedure that uses injections to mostly treat facial lines and wrinkles. The procedure can also treat neck pain, headaches, muscle spasms, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating. This procedure can do it all!

The procedure is done by injecting a chemical into a muscle to block nerve signals causing muscles to contract. When getting facial Botox, this temporarily relaxes muscles from causing fine lines and wrinkles.

It is a perfectly safe procedure when done correctly and in the right setting. When searching for Botox injections, make sure you go to a licensed professional to guarantee your procedure is done right and safely.

What Facial Areas Can Be Treated With BOTOX®?

As we age and lose more elastin and collagen, the face can become imprinted with dynamic lines and wrinkles. Botox medication targets facial aging in the following areas:

  • Forehead Wrinkles
  • Frown Line or Glabellar Wrinkles: “11’s” or vertical lines between the brows
  • Crow’s Feet: lateral lines on delicate skin around the eyes
  • Corner Droop: the slight drop or frown at the corner of the mouth
  • Bunny Lines: lines at the bridge of the nose
  • Platysmal Bands: two protruding muscle bands in the neck
  • Mentalis Dysfunction: denting or dimples in the chin
  • Gummy Smile: smiles with overexposed gums and teeth
  • Pout Boost: subtly promotes more “pout” to thin lips
  • Vertical Lip Lines: wrinkles above and below the lips

How Much Does BOTOX® Cost In The Detroit, Michigan Area?

Dr. Beauty takes pride in transparent pricing and pioneers as one of the most trustworthy and reasonably priced places for Botox in Detroit, Michigan, and surrounding areas. Dr. Beauty also serves a wide range of national and international patients, referred to us by previously satisfied Botox patients. The price for Botox in Detroit ranges from $9 to $12 Per Unit and fluctuates depending on the areas of concern you wish to target.

BOTOX® Injection Process Explained

Botox injections can be booked the same day and are exclusively performed by one of our highly trained doctors at Dr. Beauty in Detroit, Michigan. Injections take only minutes to administer, and there is little to no downtime for the procedure. After areas of concern have been identified, the Botox is meticulously injected into the underlying muscle layers to effectively block muscle contractions and smooth the skin above. Dr. Beauty utilizes a conservative approach to create a more natural-looking facial appearance and avoid the “frozen face” look.

How Long Does a BOTOX® Injection Session Take?

Botox injections are a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure with little to no downtime. A Botox session typically takes around an hour to complete, depending on your areas of concern. Many patients can have the procedure done on their lunch break and return to work within the hour.

How Many BOTOX® Injection Sessions Will I Need?

The number of Botox sessions/injections depends on the gravity of your facial aging and the number of locations you wish to target through Botox. Unfortunately, the effects of Botox are not permanent and can last for about 3-6 months before requiring continued Botox treatment at Dr. Beauty. Botox injections are both preventative and corrective; having this anti-wrinkle procedure done when signs of aging begin to show can help maintain better results in later years. With each repeated injection, the effects of Botox may last longer.

What Should I Do in Preparation for My BOTOX® Injection Session?

It is best practice to have an in-depth consultation at Dr. Beauty before you commit to Botox. During your consultation Dr. Beauty will:

  • Perform a thorough examination and target problem areas
  • Ask what you want to achieve with Botox
  • Find out if you have any conditions that prevent you from having Botox
  • Advise you on how to cleanse your skin before Botox
  • Ask you to stop taking certain supplements or medications
  • Ask you to stop smoking well before your Botox

What Does a BOTOX® Injection Feel Like? Is it Painful?

Dr. Beauty uses either a topical anesthetic or numbing agent to make the procedure virtually painless and uses needles that are extremely small (like diabetic needles) to administer your Botox. Patients have likened the experience to a small pinch that vanishes almost instantaneously. Dr. Beauty’s trained medical professionals are experts at administering Botox in a way that is hardly noticeable. The team places a large focus on creating a relaxing, luxurious, and safe setting to perform your Botox treatment, using the latest medicines and Botox materials available for enhanced results.

What Should I Expect After Each BOTOX® Injection?

Immediately after Botox, you can expect slight bruising, bleeding, or redness, and in some cases, little bumps from the injection that will subside within 20-30 minutes.

In rare cases, you may develop a headache, and it is advised to take an anti-inflammatory Tylenol. The first time Botox is injected, it takes time to act, so do not be worried if results are not seen immediately. Expect to see softened or more smooth skin within 72 hours and maximum effects of your Botox by day 7.

When Should I See Results?

Your results will depend on your treatment, however, most patients begin to see results within 2 days. In many cases, patients can see full results after two weeks. You may continue to see improvements up to a month after receiving Botox injections.

How Long Will It Last?

Most continue to enjoy the benefits of their Botox treatments three to four months after their procedure. However, it is important to keep in mind that the more you make muscle movements such as frowning, smiling, or similar actions, the less your Botox treatment will last.

Generally, patients who receive multiple procedures over time will enjoy cumulative, long-lasting results. One of our licensed staff members can guide you through a personalized treatment plan.

Other Things To Consider Before Getting BOTOX®

Are There Any Risks Or Side Effects To Getting BOTOX® Injections?

Patients can experience minor pain at the place where the Botox was injected, as well as redness, bleeding, and bruising. Headaches can also occur, but most do not experience long-term side effects. Having your treatment done at a local med spa by an experienced and licensed professional will yield the best results.

Should I Really Get BOTOX®? Is It Right For Me?

Anyone can get Botox; however, those with nerve or muscle diseases, allergies to Botulinum Toxin or Human Albumin, are pregnant, planning to get pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or planning to breastfeed should avoid Botox.
