New Year, new you? If you’re looking for a fresh start this year, you can rejuvenate your face with Botox. This way, you can kickstart your year with a wrinkle-free and youthful look!
Botox treatment remains a popular choice for our clients year in and year out. Our clients often book Botox to lighten their wrinkles, boost their lip appearance, and other purposes.
So, if you’re new to Botox or planning to try it soon, read on to see why it’s a good investment this year.
Benefits of Botox for your face
Botox, or botulinum toxin, has a myriad of benefits when used for cosmetic purposes. At Pure Skin Laser Center, we only use FDA-approved and quality Botox to give you long-lasting benefits, including the following:
1. Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
One of the primary reasons our clients opt for Botox is its remarkable ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, resulting in the formation of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. Botox injections target these specific areas by relaxing the underlying muscles, smoothening out the wrinkles, and giving you a more youthful appearance.
2. Prevention of Deep Wrinkles
Aside from reducing existing wrinkles, Botox injections can also help prevent the formation of deep wrinkles.
By regularly receiving Botox treatments, your muscles won’t contract. This will prevent them from making repetitive movements that lead to deeper lines over time.
Also, starting Botox early can be a proactive approach to maintaining a youthful complexion in the long run.
3. Lifted Eyebrows and Opened-Up Eyes
Have you ever noticed that, as you age, your eyebrows tend to droop? Does it make your eyes appear tired or sad?
Botox injections can provide an effective solution to this problem. By injecting tiny amounts of Botox into specific muscles around the eyebrows, they can be lifted, giving your eyes a more open and refreshed look.
Aside from that, Botox can lighten your frown lines and crow’s feet, all without the need for plastic surgery.
4. Reduction of Excessive Sweating
While primarily known for its cosmetic benefits, Botox also offers a solution for those struggling with excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis.
The same toxin that relaxes your facial muscles can be used to block signals that trigger sweat production in the underarms, palms, or feet.
With that, Botox can significantly improve your quality of life by reducing embarrassing sweat patches and discomfort caused by excessive perspiration.
5. Non-Invasive Procedure with Minimal Downtime
Unlike invasive surgical procedures, Botox works without incisions or extensive recovery time. The injections are quick and virtually painless, and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure.
This makes Botox an attractive option for those looking for a convenient way to enhance their facial appearance without major disruptions to their routine.
Overall, Botox can rejuvenate you without the need to file a sick leave at work.
How does face mapping for Botox work?
Face mapping involves carefully analyzing your facial structure. This includes identifying specific areas where Botox injections will yield the best results.
For this, our aesthetician will consider various factors such as muscle movements and bone structure. Also, we will factor in your beauty goals to create a customized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs.
During the initial consultation, our practitioner will closely examine your face from different angles and discuss your concerns and desired outcomes. They will identify areas where Botox can be strategically injected to target specific muscles responsible for wrinkles or other cosmetic issues.
For example, if you have prominent frown lines between your eyebrows, we will determine the precise location where Botox should be injected to relax the muscles causing these lines.
At the same time, if you wish to lift your eyebrows, we will identify the optimal injection sites to achieve the desired lift for natural-looking results.
Botox Procedure and Aftercare
If you’re planning to get Botox for the first time, you’re probably concerned about how the treatment goes. With that, here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect:
During the treatment
The Botox procedure itself is relatively straightforward and typically takes around 10-15 minutes to complete. Here’s how it usually goes in our medical spa:
Consultation. We will give you a free consultation where we will discuss your goals and expectations. During this time, we will also examine your face using face mapping techniques, and develop a personalized treatment plan. If you’re pregnant and planning to get Botox, we always recommend waiting until you’ve given birth and received clearance from your doctor.
Preparation. After that, we will clean the targeted areas on your face before the injections.
Injection. Using a fine needle, we will administer small amounts of Botox to the predetermined muscles around your face.
Post-Treatment. You may experience some redness or swelling at the injection sites immediately after the procedure, but it should subside within a few hours.
Just like most cosmetic treatments, following proper aftercare will ensure that you’ll get the best results from your Botox injections. Here are a few things we always tell our clients:
Avoid touching or rubbing the treated areas for at least 24 hours.
Avoid strenuous exercise or activities that increase blood flow to the face for 24 hours.
Refrain from lying down flat or bending over for extended periods.
Stay hydrated and maintain a healthy lifestyle to promote overall skin health.
Follow any additional instructions provided by your practitioner regarding skincare products or routines.
If the swelling or bruising doesn’t subside within a few days, call us for proper advice.
After 24 hours, follow a gentle skincare routine and avoid rubbing your face too much.
Avoid drinking or smoking after the treatment, as this will increase your risk of bruising and swelling.
Be patient. Botox takes a few days to settle and reach its full effects.
How much does Botox cost?
While you may want to start the New Year right with this treatment, the cost of Botox is surely a concern.
For our Botox treatments, we offer it at $10 per unit if you’re going to book at least 20 units at a time. But for treatments that require units fewer than 20, the price is $12 per unit.
Aside from that, we always run promos and discounts that we send through our monthly newsletters. So, if you want to be one of the first people to receive these exclusive offers, make sure that you contact us today.
Overall, we offer the best price in North Hollywood, not only for Botox but for all our cosmetic treatments.
