Botox is one of the best known, non-invasive cosmetic procedures today. Caravela specializes in the injection of neuromodulators like Botox Cosmetic. Learn more about everything you need to know from the best Botox injector in Alexandria, Virginia.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator that is injected to temporarily "freeze" muscles and soften the appearance of movement lines. Since Botox first launched, there are now four major brands including Dysport® and Xeomin.® Each brand has its own profile for results and many injectors now use the newer brands.
How Does 'Tox Work?
Botox injections temporarily blocks the nerve signals to the muscle, which means that it cannot contract. These contractions are responsible for the appearance and deepening of existing movement wrinkles that we tend to get with age and life experiences. Botox injections relax your muscles and, therefore, gives your face a smoother, younger appearance.
What 'Tox Can Do for Your Appearance
In addition to decreasing the appearance of facial wrinkles, Botox can also be used to smooth neck lines, treat TMJ, migraines and chin dimples. The best Botox injectors can also use Botox to soften a square jawline, enhance an upper lip with a “lip flip” or correct an overly gummy smile.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect from 'Tox?
Results from a Botox session typically take 5 to 14 days for full effect after treatment. When Botox begins to take effect on the treated areas, you'll see lines soften and wrinkles diminish in appearance. Depending on the strength of your muscles and the surface area that you want to have treated, you may need more than one Botox session to achieve the desired results.
Will 'Tox Make Me Look Overdone?
This is why it is important to pick the best Botox injector! The “overdone” look usually comes from too much product or spot treatments vs full facial correction. Great injectors know how to achieve a soft, subtle and refreshed look.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
