Botox

If you are looking for effective and noticeable answers to your wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and the vertical lines between your eyebrows, your search is over! Artavi Med Spa is proud to state that our Botox treatments are all performed by a trained physician. This is to ensure the safety of our patients. Botox is a brand name for botulinum neurotoxin, a medication used for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles.

If you do not have wrinkles, Botox is also a great way to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. At Artavi Med Spa, we only use 100% pure, authentic Botox from Allergan in order to give our patients the full effect of the treatment and provide the quality and value they are paying for.

+ What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into the skin to treat dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those that form when a muscle is contracted, for example lines on the forehead that appear when the eyebrows are raised or crow’s feet that form when a person smiles widely.

+ Is Botox safe?

Botox is an FDA approved medication used for the treatment of moderate to severe forehead, glabellar, and periorbital (crow’s feet) wrinkles. Botox is safe if performed by a trained medical professional. You should always ensure there is a physician on site any time Botox is injected. There are adverse effects with Botox as with any medication, however these adverse effects are minimal if the treatment is performed by a trained medical professional and if post treatment instructions are carefully followed.

+ How long does Botox last once injected?

Studies show varying ranges of efficacy but in general the effects of Botox tend to last 3-4 months. Depending on which muscles the Botox is injected into, these effects can last for a shorter or longer period of time.

+ How much do you charge for Botox?

We charge per unit of Botox. Typically a person will need on average at least about 20 units of Botox, however some may need more. We will be able to give a more accurate price during the free consultation during which we will learn which wrinkles bother you most, assess the strength of your muscles and the depth of the wrinkles. You may also call our office for pricing per unit.

+ I have a special event coming up. When should I receive Botox in time for my event?

We recommend you come in for your Botox procedure about one month prior to your event. The full effect of the Botox takes around two weeks. Coming in one month ahead of time will allow sufficient time for any touch ups required at the two week mark.

+ How long does a Botox treatment take?

This depends on what areas and how many areas you would like to be treated. Each Botox treatment area can generally take about 15 minutes. These can even be done during your lunch break from work as there is no down time post treatment!

+ When will I see results?

You should expect to see the full effect of Botox within 1-2 weeks.

+ Does the Botox treatment hurt?

We use the smallest needles availble and most patients do not require any numbing. If you experience discomfort, we provide different options to make the Botox treatment as comfortable as possible for you.

+ Are there any side effects?

Some side effects are expected with any time a needle is inserted into the skin- i.e. pain, swelling, bruising. More serious side effects can occur if the Botox treatment is performed by an inexperienced injector or if post treatment instructions are not carefully followed. These side effects can include a droopy eyelid or a droopy eyebrow. For these reasons and more, it is highly advised to seek a trained physician to perform Botox injections.
