What is Botox and How Is It Administered?

botoxinjectionNo doubt about it, Americans love to look and feel good. Approximately 320,000 massage therapists practice in the United States today. Between July 2010 and July 2011, nearly 38 million people sought out a massage to help alleviate the stress and tension of their daily lives in the States. Back massaging techniques, Swedish, Reiki, or otherwise, are often thought to be some of the best ways to feel relaxed.

Massages reduce the inward effects of age and stress. However, what about the outward effects? For that we have laser hair removal and Botox. Hair removal using lasers became commercially available in the mid 1990s and has only grown in popularity since that time. Arguably, however, Botox remains the number one procedure for rejuvenating youth and retaining our vibrancy. If you have ever wondered “what is Botox?” and “what is the process of Botox?”

What is Botox?
According to Botox Cosmetic, Botox is actually a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Because it can be dangerous in the hands of the untrained, Botox is a prescription injection. Its uses vary, but most have to do with beauty. For instance, an injection of the substance into the face can reduce frown and smile lines that give us that aged look. However, the medicine also has the ability to reduce headaches, reduce muscle stiffness, and treat an overactive bladder, according to Botox.com.

What is the Process of Botox?
The most popular uses of Botox are for beauty. Accordingly, the top non-surgical aesthetic procedure in 2008 was Botox injection. Over two million people underwent injection in that year alone. In 2011, U.S. citizens spent 1.7 billion dollars on these procedures in order to rejuvenate their aging faces.
If you have found yourself wondering “what is the process of Botox?” here is the usual progression of events according to WebMD.

1. Two Weeks Before
Aspirin, ibuprofen, and other anti-inflammatory medications can actually counteract the effects of your Botox treatment. Subsequently, you will want to stop taking them around two weeks before your procedure to make sure they are out of your system.


2. One Week Before
Alcoholic substances can reduce the effectiveness of the smoothing effects of Botox due to increased water retention. As such, you should stop drinking alcoholic beverages a week before your procedure.


3. The Procedure
The procedure itself takes less than 10 minutes and rarely requires any sort of pain management. A fine needle is injected into your face, and the injection is complete. Just like that you are done.


4. The Effects
According to Botox Cosmetic, the effects of an injection generally last six months the first few times you undergo the procedure. However, as time goes on, you may have reduced need for treatment as your facial muscles are trained to relax. This means your wrinkles may eventually be permanently erased.

Whether you are seeking out Botox treatment for crow’s feet, smile lines, or frown lines, the procedure is generally the same, and it is generally safe. However, before undergoing any injections you should consult your doctor on the benefits of Botox treatments and the possible side effects.

Our Thermage Difference
Our Thermage Difference

We all desire to look as young as we feel. But as we age, so does our bodies. Along with age comes wrinkles and bulges that some times have nothing to do with fat. Over time our skin loses its elasticity and starts to shape our bodies differently. But fear not there is a solution! [...]

Testimonials

“Went to the Body Shop to try it out, a little skeptical about their program because I had never ever done any beautification anything.
What a great experience it was!  First of all, Lee, Sue and Melanie are outstanding people, with a very high sense of customer service.
My first visit was a hands-on; no interview, no wasting time. 

I received a detailed explanation of the process and the supplements, the do’s and the don’ts. LOTS OF WATER! After the eight treatments, which were a mixture of lipo laser and cavitation (with the power plate, of course), I lost 1.5 inches of my belly fat!!

I feel awesome. Absolutely recommend it to EVERYBODY!I am looking forward to another set of treatments in the near future”.
