What is Botox and How Does it Work?

What is Botox and How Does it Work

Botox and Dysport are two of the best anti-wrinkle injections used to treat and prevent lines, wrinkles, and creases on the face. When these neurotoxins are injected directly into muscles, they can temporarily reduce wrinkles caused by muscles contracting. 

Today, Roots Wellness and Med Spa are here to guide you on how it functions and can benefit you the most. Check out this blog post for more details! 

Everything About Botox

Botulinum toxin is a deadly neurotoxin that causes botulism, a severe and fatal disease in which it attacks the nerves of the body, paralyzing muscles, making it hard to breathe, and even killing people. 

Botulinum toxin is safe and has few side effects when used in small amounts and in the right way for medical and cosmetic purposes. Botox is made in a lab and is given as a freeze-dried powder mixed with saline solution before being injected.

At Roots Wellness and Medspa, our skilled injectors give good results and service. During every procedure, safety is the most important thing to us. Contact Roots Wellness and Medspa in Tampa, FL, to learn more about our Botox and Dysport treatments. 

Our team is dedicated to providing outstanding care that results in excellent treatment. Discover how we can help treat your worries with Botox in these areas of your body. But first, let’s examine why you should consider taking Botox.

Why Consider Botox?

Other than keeping your skin young and fresh, there are two ways to use Botox injections.

Of course, as we say, you use Botox to make wrinkles look less noticeable or to change the shape of parts of the face, like the chin and jaw. Botox treats headaches, excessive sweating, and an overactive bladder, among other things.

What Happens When You Get Botox?

Before you get Botox, you will consult your doctor or nurse. During this stage, you’ll learn more about Botox, how it works, and what you can expect. 

A consultation is also the best time to determine if the practitioner is a good fit for you. Our guides can help you find out more:

  • How to find the right person to treat you with Botox
  • What to expect at a Botox appointment

Here’s what Botox can treat in our office. 

Lines on Your Forehead

Botox can stop moderate to severe forehead lines from getting worse. If you eliminate the lines and wrinkles on your forehead, your skin will look smoother and younger. The frown lines may also need to be injected to get the best results.

Laugh Lines

When you furrow your brows, you may see the 11s, another name for the Scowl Lines. Botox or Dysport can stop these lines from forming, making you look younger.

Bunny Lines

When you scrunch up your nose, you get “bunny lines.” If you keep giving this area neurotoxin injections, these little lines won’t worsen. After a quick treatment that makes the lines disappear, the skin will look smooth and beautiful.

Eyebrow Lift

Botox is one of the best ways to get a quick treatment to avoid your eyes looking less tired. Using Botox or Dysport can also be a chance to make your eyebrows stand up, and you look younger or more alert. So with our help, let us draw attention to your beautiful eyes!

The Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are those annoying little lines on the outside corners of the eyes. Botox or Dysport can smooth those fine lines and make your skin wrinkle-free.

Lip Lines / Lip Flip

Get your lips to look fuller. With a neurotoxin injection, the skin around your mouth and smile line becomes smooth. This makes you look younger. You can also put neurotoxins into the lip line to make the lips look fuller.

Why Choose an Expert Provider For This Treatment

Many facial muscles exist, and an experienced doctor can find and treat the exact ones causing your wrinkles. Your doctor will tell you which parts of your face work best with Botox. 

Depending on which parts of your face you want to treat, they may suggest other or complementary treatments, like chemical peels or dermal fillers. During the procedure, which is about 20 minutes on average, your doctor or nurse will inject Botox into your chosen muscles.

Some muscles will need more than one shot during the same session. Again, Botox injections don’t require any time off, so you can return to your routine immediately. But most wait at least seven days before getting a facial, peel, or microdermabrasion. 

After your treatment, you will be told what to do to ensure you get the best results possible.

Your wrinkles may look better in as little as a few days, but it may take two weeks or more to see the full effects.

A clinic you can trust, like us here at Roots Wellness and Med Spa, will offer you a follow–up appointment to ensure your safety. After your treatment, you will have a follow-up appointment in 2 to 3 weeks. Get in touch with us to find out more. 

The Good Things About Botox

The main good things about Botox are:

  • You will look younger than you are.
  • It can help keep wrinkles from getting worse.
  • It can be given in a range of amounts. 
  • Studies have shown that Botox may help relieve depression symptoms.
  • Botox can help with several long-term problems when used to treat medical conditions. 
  • It can help you feel better about yourself and clear your symptoms. 

Side Effects of The Treatment

Botox has several possible side effects and limits that can be different for each person. During your consultation, we will do everything we can to evaluate, talk to, and prepare you based on your specific needs. However, some general “rules” may keep you from getting Botox.

These things are:

  • If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, allergic to Botox’s ingredients, or have had a bad reaction to Botox in the past.
  • Suppose you have a thorough consultation with an experienced and qualified doctor. In that case, your Botox treatment will likely give you the desired results.

But some people’s genes may make them more likely to have a mild reaction to the treatment.
