When you see Botox in the movies, you likely are not seeing an accurate representation of the procedure. Are you looking for a med spa near you in Winter Springs, FL and Oviedo, FL? At Maki Wellness Center, we have Botox treatments available near you in Winter Springs, FL and Oviedo, FL! This FDA approved method will help reduce wrinkles and restore your youthful appearance. It is a non-surgical alternative to a surgical facelift.
Where does Botox come from?
Botox is derived from botulism which is produced by a bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. In large amounts, this toxin can be dangerous. In small quantities, it is helpful to help erase your wrinkles. Lines and wrinkles often form because your muscles that control your face do not relax. They stay contracted after years of smiling and laughing, which is quite reasonable. Botox paralyzes those muscles and relax them, reducing lines and restoring your looks.
After I receive a Botox treatment at Maki Wellness Center, should I expect any discomfort? How long should I expect the procedure to last?
You may feel a slight discomfort during injections. If you are concerned about this, our experts can use ice or a numbing cream to help with any discomfort. Talk with us about your concerns, and we’ll do our best to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. In many cases, a treatment will be done in about ten minutes.
When should I expect results?
It usually takes up to four days for you to start to see the effects of Botox in the treatment area. We’ve seen treatments last up to four months. As your body works the Botox out of your system, your wrinkles will start to return as your muscles contract again. Many patients, however, do report that the wrinkles are less pronounced when they return. To maintain your aesthetic goals, treatments should be repeated every three to four months.
Do I need to change my daily activities after treatment? Is there any downtime?
Our staff’s overriding goal is for you to have a successful Botox treatment. With that in mind, we will review with the detailed aftercare instructions that we will print out and send home with you. After a session, avoid laying down or bending over for at least six hours. This precaution prevents the injection from moving around and seeping into other areas. If the Botox moves around, it could cause other muscles to be relaxed that weren’t intended to treat. The result of this could cause your aesthetic goals not to be met.
Some patients report some dry mouth after a session. To avoid this, we suggest bringing some sugar-free candy with you to use after a visit.
If you have an upcoming medical appointment involving dental work or surgery, please let your doctor know you have had a Botox Treatment. Please also inform a doctor if you visit the emergency room.
We look forward to meeting you!
