One of the most popular anti-aging treatments, Botox® softens existing wrinkles and stops new lines from forming. This results in your skin looking youthful, fresh, and attractive instead of tight and contracted. If you are looking for Botox® in Indianapolis or Greenwood, schedule an appointment today!
It reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and many other side effects of aging. In addition, it helps with sweating, lazy eyes, chronic migraines, muscle contractions, and bladder dysfunction.
How long does Botox® last?
In an ideal world, the effects of a neurotoxin last forever. However, the effects do eventually wear off. After time, the neurotoxin fades. The nerves will begin to send signals to the muscles, and they will begin to contract and work once more. By and large, a neurotoxin lasts for roughly 3 to 4 months, depending on skin type and other factors.
Is Botox® safe?
Small doses are considered safe. This also is true for the long term. It can safely be stopped at any time without your skin looking worse than it did before you started. It has been around for almost two decades and many advancements have been made to improve its efficacy and safety.
What to expect.
Before the procedure, pictures are taken to provide a better view and understanding of the areas to be treated. They can be consulted when discussing specific goals with the practitioner. When compared to your “After” pictures, they are an effective way to track treatment results over time.
Personalized muscle diagnosis
The practitioner first marks the exact injection points with a white makeup pencil, asks you to frown, raise your eyebrows, and smile widely, and conducts a personalized assessment of your facial anatomy to determine the best treatment for achieving optimal results.
The procedure lasts only a few minutes. The practitioner injects the patient with a small-gauge needle that minimizes any discomfort. Using the marked points as a guide, the practitioner proceeds with injections and determines the minimum amounts needed to achieve the desired effect.
The cost for Botox varies for each client. Each client requires a different amount of what we call “units.” For some clients, a treatment area could require 40 units, while for others it could require 30 units.

It’s essential that you notify your practitioner if you’ve received other kinds of injections in the three months prior to your appointment. Avoid using medicines, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and other drugs that thin the blood prior to your treatment. These may increase bleeding and bruising risks. Furthermore, be sure to tell your practitioner if you’re taking any allergy drugs, muscle relaxers or sleep aids.
How long is the recovery after Botox?admin2023-07-24T12:58:47-04:00
The maximal effects will appear around the 2nd week. The recovery of muscle function is gradual, and facial lines may become noticeable again 3-4 months after your treatment. You may schedule your next Botox appointment by then to keep the skin from going back to its previous condition.
With topical anesthetic, Botox injections can be virtually painless. Even without a numbing agent, pain is minimal, and you may only feel a little pinch. Injections are very quick and with a trained Bion injector, you may not even notice when they happen.
