It’s time to take a stand against wrinkles and frown lines. We no longer live in an age where we are forced to look like our great-grandparents.
While genetics plays a role in who we look like, with the help from science and technology, there are options to reduce and slow the signs of aging. Botox is a neuromodulator used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox blocks the nerve signals to the muscles when trying to crease, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance.
This injectable treatment helps people receive the youthful-looking complexions they have been hoping for. BOTOX is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily reduces the movements of the facial muscles that work to create particular expressions in the forehead region.
The crevices that develop from these continuous muscle contractions are referred to as “dynamic” since they are the result of facial movement. With enough repetition, these wrinkles stay visible, even if the face is fully at rest. BOTOX injectable treatments can dramatically soften the depth of these lines by restricting these facial expressions, giving the tissue overlying the muscles the time to even itself naturally.
BOTOX injections are used for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of wrinkles and creases on their upper face in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is also used as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even if you do not yet show signs of aging.
It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or parallel lines between the brows or lines that form around the eyes. If you experience more pronounced creases, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option.
Depending on your amount of skin laxity and individual goals, our team will help you determine whether BOTOX treatments will work well for you during your consultation. Botox is an excellent, non-invasive treatment for reducing the sign of aging around the face. It is important you have realistic expectations of your results. Your aesthetic specialist will discuss your options with you during your consultation. Allura Aesthetics is committed to achieving the natural-looking results you desire.
Botox is becoming one of the most widely sought-after, non-surgical cosmetic treatments, according to the 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report. While the primary use of Botox is to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is also FDA approved and popular in treating other conditions, such as chronic migraines and excessive sweating, among others. Botox can also be used along with other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers. But, it’s best to consult with your aesthetic specialist to determine your optimal results.
At Allura Aesthetics, your Botox session typically takes about 30 minutes to one hour and is performed as an outpatient treatment. Anesthesia is not needed so that you can return to your daily activities the same day. Some patients opt to have a topical anesthetic, but many patients do not have any discomfort. Your aesthetic specialist will use a thin need to inject Botox into your facial muscles and skin. The amount of Botox you need will vary depending on the facial areas needing treatment. Your aesthetic specialist will discuss all your Botox options during consultation.
After the injection, you can resume your regular routine, but strenuous activities, like exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to not touch your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face may appear red, swollen, or bruised for a few days, but you should not experience any long-lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it usually takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen.
Botox Results - What To Expect Following Botox Injections
The results generally last 3 – 4 months, depending on how your facial muscles react to the injection. Consistency is essential in any skincare regimen. You will see a noticeable reduction of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles.
While people won’t know you have had a cosmetic treatment done, some patients have noticed that they seem to be more approachable by others after their Botox treatment because they are no longer looking mad all the time.You should speak to our team about when to make a follow-up appointment at Allura Aesthetics for optimal results.

The cost of Botox treatments will vary depending on the number of units you use per treatment session. Allura Aesthetics offers reasonable payment and financing options. Cash, checks, and most major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, are accepted.
Elective treatments, such as Botox, are typically not covered under medical insurance. You should check with your insurance provider to determine if your Botox treatments are medically necessary, depending on your condition.
There is a risk with any cosmetic procedure. Complications with Botox are rare, but some risks include pain or swelling at the injection site, headaches, asymmetry of the eyebrows or mouth area.
Once Botox is injected, it doesn’t move more than 2 centimeters from the injection site. Even in the slightest chance that some Botox molecules enter the bloodstream, your dose is too small for any toxic effects to take place.
