What to Know Before Planning Your BOTOX® Appointment

Going back in time may be impossible, but turning back the signs of aging is not. Over time, facial movements, like smiling, frowning, and even talking, can cause wrinkles and fine lines. With BOTOX® injectable treatments at Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, Dr. Salman Hashmi can help you achieve a younger-looking face once again. As a result, you can gain more self-confidence in how you look. Here are five things you should know before planning your BOTOX appointment.

  1. BOTOX injectable treatments help smooth your skin.

Throughout your life, you make many facial movements. From smiling to frowning to squinting, these facial movements are called “dynamic,” meaning they are caused by movement. Over time, dynamic facial movements can cause visible fine lines and wrinkles – even when your face is totally relaxed.

BOTOX injectable treatments are a nonsurgical approach that uses a clean strain of botulinum toxin (type A) to stop muscle movements, giving your face a chance to smooth itself out naturally.

  1. BOTOX comes with a wide range of benefits.

Facial wrinkles have a significant impact on your appearance. They can make you look stressed, angry, tired, or older than you are. BOTOX can refresh your appearance and make you look younger and more alert. It can also be used to help prevent wrinkles from forming in younger patients who may not have many signs of aging yet.

At Nirvana Med Spa in Little Rock, AR, most patients use BOTOX to reduce wrinkles in the brows, Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.

  1. Many patients are ideal candidates for BOTOX.

If you want to reduce and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on your face, you are likely an ideal candidate for BOTOX. Whether you are younger and want to prevent signs of aging or you’re already experiencing facial wrinkles, BOTOX can help you achieve the look you want and deserve.

If you are over 50 and have severe wrinkles, you may be a candidate for a facelift, which offers more dramatic and long-lasting results.

  1. Recovery from BOTOX is short.

Because BOTOX is a nonsurgical procedure, recovery time is short. After your procedure, you can return to your normal routine, although you should avoid strenuous activities that day. For one night, sleep with your head propped up and don’t touch your face. This can make BOTOX spread to other areas. You may notice some slight bruising, redness, or swelling, but these side effects will subside in just a few days.

Usually, individuals see the full effects of BOTOX injectable treatments within a week, and results can last about 3 – 4 months.

  1. You may need additional BOTOX injections to maintain your results.

The number of BOTOX treatments that will help you achieve your goals will depend on your individual situation and how severe your facial wrinkles are. Our team can help you decide how many injections you’ll need and where you would most benefit from BOTOX.

To maintain your results, we recommend getting BOTOX treatments every 3 – 4 months at our Little Rock, AR office.
