Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors including muscle contractions from facial expressions. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows can cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Ideal MedSpas in McDonough, Georgia, offers BOTOX® treatments to target these repeated muscle contractions. Botox temporarily reduces the muscle activity resulting in a visible smoothing in the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It also delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines. Results typically last 3-4 months. Call the office or book online to discover how you can benefit from Botox.

Botox Q & A

Where can it be injected?

Neuromodulators (Botox, etc) is FDA approved to be injected in the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.

How long does it last?

Results can last for 3 - 4 months. Individual results may vary.

How long will it take to see results?

You will start to notice an improvement in 2-3 days, but the maximum benefit is seen 2 weeks from injection and is FDA-indicated to last 3-4 months. Your metabolism and a wide variety of factors can vary the onset and your results with Botox. As the product wears off, the previously treated lines & wrinkles may begin to reappear. It’s similar to getting a haircut or highlights, and requires maintenance! If lines are treated with Botox on a regular basis, they tend to remain more superficial. The longer you are treated, the longer your results will last! Studies have shown that after two years of denervation, muscles atrophy; which means they get smaller and weaker. So if you continuously treat the muscles that are causing your lines with Botox, they will be less likely to create wrinkles!

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Yes. Although results are visible, a treatment will not radically change your appearance. The muscles that are not treated are not affected, allowing normal facial expression.

Are there any side effects?

There can be side effects with any treatment you have done. Side effects from neuromodulators are usually minimal and temporary. They may include localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, bleeding and/or bruising, or infection. Your experienced Aesthetic Registered Nurse Injector will review all side effects and risks with you at your consultation and answer any questions you may have before the treatment is started.

Is it painful?

At Ideal MedSpas, client experience and comfort is of the utmost importance. The actual treatment usually will take less than five minutes. It’s just a few small pokes, almost painless! Most people report no discomfort at all, as the needle is much thinner than the one used to draw blood. There is no numbing medicine administered for these injections because none is needed! 

How much do I need?

The quantity depends on the area(s) to be treated. The team does a complimentary consultation with clients prior to the injection, where you can discover the best treatment plan for you and your personal skin type. Typically people need anywhere from 20 - 60 units, depending on the areas they want to treat. Pricing is done per unit and is presented before treatment begins.

How long does the treatment take?

Your first visit at Ideal Medspas will take 30 - 45 minutes. This includes the consultation, paperwork, consent forms, and time for any questions you may have, as well as the injection(s) itself. Follow-up appointments take approximately 10 - 15 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office without downtime following the injections.
