Botox Q & A


What is Botox?

Botox comes from botulinum toxin type A, a substance that as its name suggests is derived from botulinum poison. This fact shouldn’t be a cause for alarm, as Botox is perfectly safe when applied by experienced aesthetic-treatment experts such as the team from American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest. Botox temporarily paralyzes facial muscles, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and it’s proven to be safe and effective over the years since its first use in 1989.

Will Botox treatments look natural?

One of the key concerns for people considering cosmetic procedures is how natural they’ll look following treatment. The beauty industry as a whole is moving towards embracing a natural appearance, and modern Botox treatments are now sophisticated enough to reassure you that no one would guess you’d had treatment.

The latest trend in Botox treatment is what’s called “Baby Botox,” a way of using tiny injections to enhance your lips for a more natural look, rather than the bee-stung fashion of a few years ago. Most people prefer the idea of looking as natural as possible, and that’s what the doctors at American Beauty Medi Spa in Lake Forest strive to achieve.

What happens during a Botox treatment session?

Receiving Botox treatment is quick and easy, and a session generally takes around 10 minutes to complete. Your doctor uses a thin needle to inject the appropriate number of units into your face. Because of the strength of different muscles and variances in people’s faces, each area needs a different number of units, administered evenly over the target area in three to five injections.

Many people feel very little discomfort during the procedure, but if you’re worried about it hurting or you have a fear of needles, you can have anesthetic cream or ice packs applied to your skin to make it numb.

How long does Botox last?

The injections take effect very quickly, so within a few days, you should see a significant reduction in lines and wrinkles. These effects typically last for around four months, so to achieve a continuation of the effect, you’d be looking at around three treatment sessions a year.

Using Botox also helps prevent fine lines forming or returning as it helps to relax facial muscles, so it not only treats existing wrinkles but helps keep the signs of aging at bay.
