Wrinkles can alter one's appearance to create a more tired, worn down, or even angry look. Fortunately, a personal physician can help to manage these effects using Botox®. These skin creases are the result of overactive muscle movement. A personal physician can help provide microtox treatments to reduce the unwanted wrinkles associated with premature aging.
A Personal Physician has a state of the art medical spa services and treatment to help you determine if Botox is the right choice to meet your needs. Botox is a brand of protein-based chemical neurotoxin that a personal physician can deliver into your facial muscles to smooth wrinkles and prevent future ones from forming. This toxin in small doses, limits the contraction and movement of facial muscles, which can cause wrinkles while laughing, frowning, and squinting.
Our team can help determine if Botox is the right treatment for your needs, so call us and schedule an appointment today.
Is Botox Right for You?
Patients concerned about their wrinkles, having tried all the standard methods (moisturizers and serums), may find Botox to be the ideal solution. You can reduce the wrinkles in your face for a tighter and smoother appearance. Our team strives to address multiple aspects of your health, including the condition of your skin. While it is crucial to focus on your overall physical health, first impressions matter.
During a consultation, a personal physician will do a thorough assessment of your current health, obtain a medical history to determine if you are an ideal candidate. The reason people prefer Botox is that it starts working quickly and takes full effect after 2 weeks. Depending on which part of the face is treated, Botox may need to be injected every three to six months.
The Initial Consultation
During the initial consultation, a personal physician will need to review your current health and obtain a medical history. During this appointment at our medical spa, you will be able to get your questions or concerns answered to make an informed decision.
During a consultation, you can mention if you have any of the following issues:
- Pre-existing skin condition
- Allergies to foods or medications
- Fear of needles
- Current medications and supplements
- Skin Care Routine
The Botox Procedure
A Botox injection usually takes about 5 minutes, depending on how many units you need. A personal physician will use a superfine needle to inject the Botox into the specific area of the face you want to enhance. This procedure may cause mild soreness after the procedure. However, the soreness will resolve quickly as the Botox starts to work its magic.
Botox is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to return home immediately after. We will go over the cost, payment, insurance, and other factors during a consultation. In most cases, you may need 2-3 sessions to have a noticeable effect on your appearance.
During the consultation, a personal physician will go over your desires for enhancing your skin and the number of appointments you will need. We will customize your treatment plan and recommend medical grade skin care products. If you are receiving any other type of treatments, it would be good to share them before getting additional treatments to ensure minimal side effects.
Make the Changes You Desire
The effects of Botox can be noticeable in as little as two days after the initial injection. The full effect takes approximately two weeks, decreasing unwanted wrinkles. The treatments are small and will not limit movements of the major facial muscles. While the decrease in wrinkles tend to last three to six months, this can vary.
If it is your first time getting Botox, you may want to take a picture of the injection area two days after the appointment and again two weeks later to document the difference.
Recovery and Aftercare
Side effects of Botox are minor. There is minimal recovery time since it is an outpatient procedure. You can receive Botox injections and leave directly after the appointment. It is essential to keep an eye on the injection site. If you have a minor skin reaction, give us a call and we will be there to help you.
Even with Botox treatments, medical grade skincare products will help to put your best foot forward. Avoid sun exposure and follow directions from our team. Botox is designed to be non-disruptive to a person's daily routine.
