BOTOX is one of the most effective preventative treatments to avoid the formation of lines and wrinkles, or smooth etched-in lines. BOTOX helps to stop targeted muscles from constantly contracting, leading to lines, wrinkles, and creases. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin stays relaxed, looking smooth and refreshed.

Both men and women are choosing BOTOX at the first sign of crow’s feet, or that deep “11” between the eyebrows. BOTOX can help to smooth out the parenthesis lines (lines around the mouth) or forehead lines, and other areas with dynamic wrinkles (those caused by constant facial muscle motion).

How can BOTOX help fine lines and wrinkles?

By easing the muscles just below the skin, you can keep your skin looking smooth while slowing the development of deeply-etched lines and wrinkles. Many people are choosing to start BOTOX treatments earlier to delay the development of wrinkles.

Why should I have BOTOX administered by a trusted and certified professional?

The active ingredient in BOTOX is botulinum toxin type A, which inhibits muscle contraction. This is important to know when considering getting BOTOX, as any incorrect use could cause results that are unsatisfactory due to injecting too much of the product or injecting it into the wrong muscle strands. Certified professionals, such as the team at Serenity Rejuvenation, ensure that you will receive BOTOX correctly and standardly, so that you can feel confident in achieving results that look fresh and natural.

Will the results look natural?

The results look natural when BOTOX is administered correctly. You should never end up with that frozen look to your face after being treated with BOTOX, so choosing a certified professional with a history of excellence is key!

Are there any side-effects?

There are various minor side-effects related to BOTOX, some of which include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Irritation
  • Bruising or bleeding at the injection site
  • Swelling

Side effects can be discussed with one of our professional team members prior to treatment as well as during your initial consultation. With an accurate assessment of your medical history and standard application, the likelihood of experiencing any negative side-effects are greatly reduced.

How often should I have BOTOX to maintain the results?

The usual treatment schedule for facial lines, such as those between the eyebrows, is every three to four months. However, some individuals require treatment less frequently. Also, after a few years of regular BOTOX treatments people typically require fewer treatments to maintain results.

How do I get the most out of my BOTOX treatment?

The best way to get the most out of your treatment is to let the BOTOX settle into the sites where it was injected and to prevent it from travelling to surrounding tissues. Follow these tips and anything else suggested to you by our team:

  • During your consultation make sure that you disclose any and all medications or supplements that you are currently taking.
  • Do not rub or massage your face after treatment
  • Avoid exercise and sun for at least 24 hours after treatment
  • Avoid bending over
  • Do not get a facial after treatment
