Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Results | Orlando Medical Spa | AltamonteAccording to the ASPS figures, Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the US today. This FDA approved med spa injectable treatment can produce safe and attractive results as long as the injections are administered by a fully trained and experienced provider.

Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides Botox to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding communities.

 

Reduction of Aging Lines

Botox is specially aimed at softening the impact of fine lines and minor wrinkles in certain areas of the face, such as between the brows, on the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes or crow’s feet. The key ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, which will instantly work to block the signals between the nerve and the wrinkle forming muscle. This will lead to the muscle becoming relaxed, and the wrinkle fading away from the face.

Results of Botox injections at a qualified med spa can slightly vary from one patient to another, depending on the extent of wrinkles and fine lines and the amount of treatment. For instance, the smaller wrinkles such as a minor appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes can be eliminated faster, but deeper wrinkles on the forehead may require more time and more volume of the medication.

Botox has also been successfully applied over the years to treat aging lines in non-label facial areas. As long as the procedure is performed by an expert, the results will be safe and sustainable. Adverse consequences can, however, follow if the treatment is administered wrongly or in wrong quantities.

 

How soon will the Results Show?

Botox injections will take about two days to two weeks to take effect in most patients. In about two days, the patient can notice the initial results, but full effects will establish in about one to two weeks as the swelling and bruising resolves. Furthermore, the body will react gradually to the effects of bolulinum toxin.

Patient response to Botox can vary according to their age, the extent and depth of the treated lines, and the underlying strength of the facial muscles. Results will take longer to appear if the facial muscles are considerably strong. In case of older patients, deeper facial lines may not entirely flatten out.

Sometimes the injection provider may decide to start with a minimum number of injections on a new patient to assess the response. If necessary, the treatment may be topped up in a month’s time. Dosage may be adjusted if no significant results are noticed in about two weeks. As the patient goes through repeat treatments over time, the provider will know the individual patient response and follow the precise dosage that works best for them.  

 

Longevity of Results

Botox effects generally last for about three to four months. The enzymes released by the body over time will eliminate the botulinum toxin, and the aging lines will gradually reappear. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for Botox.

Botulinum Toxin (Botox) Recovery | Orlando Medical Spa | AltamonteEver since Botox was approved by the FDA in 2002 for cosmetic facial enhancement, it has continued to be the number one med spa non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure in the US. The procedure involves no anesthesia, cuts or incisions, and as a result, there is no significant downtime or recovery process involved in this injectable treatment.

At the time of Botox consultation, the injection provider will educate the patient about all aspects of the treatment, including its recovery. The patient should feel free to ask questions and compare Botox with other treatment options before making a final choice. Fiala Aesthetics Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides Botox to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and surrounding locations.  

 

Lunch Time Procedure

The key ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin, which is a potent biological agent. If administered wrongly, it can potentially have severe side effects. However, when performed by a qualified provider at a Botox certified med spa, the procedure is fairly simple and can be completed in less than half an hour. No significant advance preparation or post-treatment care will be required.

For these reasons, Botox is a popular procedure among working people, who can even use their lunch hour from work to receive Botox treatment, and once the treatment session is over, they can simply return to their place of work. Therefore, Botox is also popularly known as a ‘lunch time procedure’.

One of the precautions that a patient should take after receiving Botox injections is to avoid lying down for about four hours following the treatment. Within this much time period, the botulinum toxin will adequately spread in the targeted sites. Massaging of the injection areas as well as doing any vigorous exercises should also be avoided for about 24 hours after Botox treatment.

 

Temporary Side Effects

There are no major side effects of Botox, as long as the injections are administered correctly by a qualified professional. However, temporary side effects such as mild redness, bruising, and swelling in the injection sites may occur. Minor headaches may also occur in some cases.

It may take about two to three days for the side effects to completely resolve. The patient will usually not require any specific treatment. The patient can use makeup from the second day after the treatment to conceal any signs of bruising and swelling.

Visiting the gym or another workout routine and sports activities should be avoided for a day or two after the injections. The provider will also instruct the patient to avoid taking blood thinning medications such as aspirin for two to three days after Botox.

 

Results

Noticeable improvement can be seen almost immediately after the Botox treatment. Full results will, however, take about one week to become visible as the swelling and bruising resolves. The patient can expect to enjoy the results for about three to four months following the treatment. Fiala Aesthetics medical spa receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL and nearby areas for Botox injections.
