Botox, one of the cosmetic treatments available at Medrein Health & Aesthetics, is a neuromodulator that slows down muscle movement in the specific area where you need it.
By reducing your muscle movement, Botox smooths out wrinkles and prevents them from reforming in the upper one-third of your face.
Dr. Mikki has years of experience with Botox injections, and she’s particularly skilled with natural-looking wrinkle smoothing.
Before each Botox injection, Dr. Mikki may ask you to frown deeply, raise your eyebrows, and squint your eyes. She watches these facial muscle movements to determine the ideal target treatment area.
Depending on where you have (or want to prevent) wrinkles, Dr. Mikki may inject Botox in the following areas:
You typically receive five injections each for the forehead and glabellar areas and six total injections for crow’s feet. The injection process usually takes only a few minutes per area.
Botox injections are relatively painless, although you may feel a small sting as Dr. Mikki inserts the slim needle. If you have especially sensitive skin, ask Dr. Mikki about topical numbing before your Botox injections.
After your injections, Dr. Mikki typically applies an ice pack, which helps to minimize any redness or swelling. You might have some mild bleeding, which decreases within minutes. It’s normal to have some minor swelling for a few days, but it’s not painful.
Botox takes effect in as little as 24-48 hours but can take longer in some patients. Optimal effects may not occur for 2-4 weeks.
On average, Botox can last for up to four months. To remain wrinkle-free, schedule follow-up treatments roughly every three months. Dr. Mikki is an aesthetic injection expert who can quickly determine exactly what you need to maintain your appearance while looking natural.
Dr. Mikki may also have other recommendations to help you get the best long-term results from Botox. While Botox works very effectively to smooth out wrinkles, it’s also important to support your skin from within.
Certain nutritional supplements may help you make more collagen and elastin, improving your skin’s support system, thickness, and overall appearance. When combined with Botox, this can give you a lastingly youthful appearance.
