Why Choose Cosmos Med Spa for Botox Injections?

You also want a medical spa that focuses and specializes on facial rejuvenation and understands that Botox injections are not just a medical procedure, but a procedure that requires an artist’s approach to ensure the most natural and aesthetically pleasing results.
How Is a Botox Procedure Performed?
Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required.
Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes seven to ten days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used between the brow, forehead lines and crow’s feet (lines around the eye).
How Long Does an Injection Last?
The effects will last three to four months, sometimes more, sometimes less – each person is different. Also, depending on the time frame of retreating a specific area, results can vary as well as the number of units needed to obtain results. For first time clients, it is always best to schedule a 10 day follow up appointment to discuss any concerns or the addition of a few additional units until your “formula” is perfected. Everybody is unique.
As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and will need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with repeat treatments because the muscles are being trained to relax. Training the muscles is important so it is always best to receive Botox on a regular schedule before all of the effects of the previous treatment wears off. Deep resting creases in the skin can only be softened and not total eliminated, this is why proper maintenance is crucial.
What Are the Side Effects?
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. There is also a risk of headaches but this as well is transient in nature, usually resolving within 2-3 days. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping or a dropping of the brow which are both temporary and usually resolve within weeks. To lessen any risks, an upright position should be maintained for 4 hours following the treatments and you should refrain from exercise until the following day as well as avoid any irritating products applied directly to the injection sites.
