You can buy happiness (with Botox)!
BOTOX is a popular cosmetic procedure that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment got its name from the active chemical compound that works wonders – Botulinum toxin.
What does BOTOX treat?
BOTOX is best suited to treat dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, bunny lines, etc.
|Frown lines||Vertical lines that appear between your brows when you frown|
|Forehead lines||Horizontal lines that appear on your forehead when you raise your brows|
|Crow’s feet||Lines that appear around the outer corner of your eyes when you grin or smile|
We’re here to help you age gracefully, but age isn’t the only contributing factor to fine lines and wrinkles. Here are some other reasons why facial lines can form over the years.
- Excessive exposure to sun
- Excessive exposure to UV-rays
- Loss of skin elasticity
- Repeated facial movements
There are many factors that contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, but we’ve divided the two main causes into these categories: Dynamic and static wrinkles.
Dynamic wrinkles form over the years due to the repetition of movement of the same facial muscles. For example, frowning too often can result in the formation of frown lines. Static wrinkles, on the other hand, occur due to the loss of skin elasticity. For example, lines around the cheeks and neck. BOTOX targets the dynamic wrinkles.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is a neurotoxin that stops the activity of muscles in the affected regions.
Your brain is responsible for sending chemical messages to your muscles to contract. Facial muscles cannot contract voluntarily and they need these messages to work. BOTOX temporarily blocks these signals and allows the muscle to stay in a relaxed state.
What to expect from a BOTOX treatment?
Botox is a simple procedure with no downtime or recovery time. At Metro Medspa, we offer free consultations to determine if you’re a good candidate for Botox. If you’re a candidate, we create a customized aesthetic care plan to address your concerns and achieve your cosmetic goals.
Botox is administered through very fine, specially designed needles. The procedure is painless, however, you can expect a slight pinching sensation when the needle is inserted.
Still not sure about the needles? Well, if necessary we can apply a topical numbing cream, so you don’t feel a thing! Once the procedure is complete, you’re free to go home, drive, and continue day to day activities. You can expect your final results to appear within 4-14 days and last up to 4 months!
At Metro Medspa, our goal is simple…Normalize aesthetic treatments. We created Metro Medspa from the perspective of an everyday woman. We know it’s not easy to sit in a sterile, medical-ish treatment room holding a mirror pointing out what bothers you about your face or body. So we flipped the script with a modern beauty bar that focuses on beauty as an empowering feeling, not a source of insecurity.
