Botox® is a protein called Clostridium botulinum (“Botox” is short for “botulinum toxin A”). It is injected beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make the patient look more youthful. Botulinum is a neurotoxic substance, but used in a controlled medical environment, Botox® injections are quite safe. Its neurotoxic qualities mean that it blocks the uncontrollable tightening of muscles, making for a smoother facial appearance.
Abeo MedSpa focuses on the cosmetic applications of Botox®. We use Botox® for wrinkles, allowing patients to achieve a more youthful appearance without cosmetic surgery
After treatment, a Botox® patient typically sees results immediately or within a week. After that, the results will last three to six months; if patients are happy with the results and desire to continue with treatment, they can then do so.
The results of Botox® treatment are often striking: around one week after the injection, the patient typically sees smoother skin with fewer, lighter wrinkles
The recovery period for Botox® treatment is very brief, lasting only minutes, and patients can typically resume their daily routines right away. Patients should wait a day before doing any vigorous exercise.
As with any cosmetic procedure, side effects are possible. However, the risk of these is lessened when a licensed, experienced practitioner — typically, a cosmetic surgeon — performs the procedure.
