Which Areas Can I Target With BOTOX Injections?
While wrinkles are the most widely recognized target for BOTOX, it can treat other features, too. Amélie’s menu of BOTOX services includes:
Between the Brows
Between the Brows specifically addresses prominent “11s” or frown lines between your eyebrows.
The Fresh Face treatment addresses several wrinkles on the upper half of your face, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.
Bright Eyes diminishes crow’s feet on the outer corners of your eyes.
Lip Flip reduces lines and wrinkles on and around your lips. It also helps your upper lip look more voluminous.
Smooth Sailing addresses forehead lines and frown lines at the same time.
The team at Amélie can use BOTOX injections to help relax and shrink an overdeveloped masseter muscle in your jaw and keep it from clenching.
Many people don’t realize BOTOX can treat excessive sweating, specifically under your armpits. The condition is called hyperhidrosis, and it responds well to BOTOX injections.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?
The team at Amélie will talk with you about your specific goals for treatment to determine whether or not BOTOX is the best option for you. You might be a candidate if:
- You’re over 18
- You’re not pregnant or breastfeeding
- You have no active skin conditions
- You have realistic expectations
We may recommend BOTOX to you as a preventative measure even before you develop facial wrinkles if you’re concerned about getting them. Or, depending on the types of wrinkles you have, we may suggest other treatments, like dermal fillers or HALO™ laser skin resurfacing.
What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?
At Amélie, our experienced injectors use very fine needles to place your BOTOX injections in and around your targeted areas. They also use distraction techniques and ice to make your treatment as painless as possible. (Don’t stress about the needle pinch—most people say it feels like a little bug bite!)
Appointments are super quick—we’re talking less than 20 minutes in most cases.
What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?
There’s basically no recovery involved with BOTOX. You can head right back to work, school, or whatever else you’ve got planned. You might have some redness around your injection sites, but that usually goes away within a day.
When Will I See My BOTOX Results?
Results typically show up after about 5 to 10 days. (Dysport is a little faster and only takes about 2 days.) You can expect your results to last about 3 to 4 months.
