Without even being aware of it, your face makes countless involuntary muscle actions every day. Between natural aging and these contractions, it’s no wonder that our faces develop lines and wrinkles.

These imperfections can make you look angry, tired or much older than you are.

While we are all getting older, there’s no reason why you have to look your age. You can recapture your youthful appearance with the assistance of Botox injections.

In recent years, Botox injections have become one of the hottest Miami med spa treatments. If you’re ready to see how young and vibrant you can look, contact Seduction Med Spa today. In our conveniently located treatment center, you’ll be surrounded by comfort and luxury while licensed medical professionals cater to your every need.

What Is Botox?

In 2002, the FDA approved Botox Cosmetic for the purposes of reducing prominent lines and wrinkles in the forehead. Use of these treatments has expanded over the years, with Botox now being prescribed for everything from lines in the neck to reducing the visibility of gums in your smile.

Identified clinically as Botulinum Toxin Type A, Botox is used to immediately reduce the telltale signs of aging. If you have frown lines or crow’s feet, then it may be possible for Botox to minimize the appearance of these imperfections. Botox is injected into the skin to temporarily paralyze the muscles that are responsible for making wrinkles look deeper and more pronounced.

What Does Botox Do?

When Botox is injected into specific areas of your face, it causes the underlying muscles that contribute to wrinkles to relax. As you make a variety of facial expressions over the years, your muscles contract in specific, habitual ways. Eventually, wrinkles form in the places in which the skin folds together. Botox is able to block signals between the nerves and these muscles. Because the muscle can no longer contract, the wrinkles soften and relax.

Botox is administered using a very small needle that is inserted just into the muscles that underlie the skin. This quick and efficient procedure takes only a few minutes, and you won’t have to worry about waiting an extended period for recovery because Botox is a non-surgical procedure.

What Can Botox Injections Treat?

Almost anything from fine lines to deep-set wrinkles can be alleviated with Botox injections. Here is just a sample of the conditions that Botox may be able to correct:

• Crow’s feet
• Horizontal lines across the forehead
• Forehead wrinkles
• Vertical lines around the lips
• Frown lines
• Asymmetry of the face
• Corners of the mouth that turn downward
• Neck wrinkles
• Bunny lines
• Dimpling on the chin
• A poorly defined jaw line
• A gummy smile

Can Botox Be Used on the Masseter Muscle?

Although you may not know its name, the masseter muscle is one the strongest and hardest working muscles in your body. It is wrapped around the jawbone, making it possible for your jaw to move as you eat, drink and speak. Sometimes, this muscle becomes enlarged, causing the face to look out of proportion.

How does the masseter become enlarged? Usually, it is the result of a lifetime of teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Many people do these things while sleeping or without being aware of it when they are awake. Uncontrolled jaw spasms may ultimately be the result if this behavior becomes chronic.

If you believe that you are having issues with your masseter muscle, then call Seduction Med Spa. A Botox injection may be just what you need to relax that muscle and stop spasms. This simple injection also can restore your natural facial contours.

Have You Heard About the Botox Nefertiti Lift?

Running vertically along your neck are muscles known as the platysma bands. These powerful muscles never stop pulling down on the lower portion of your face. In fact, your jawline may begin to lose definition over time because of this pulling.

Fortunately, that definition can be restored with a Nefertiti lift using Botox. Nefertiti was an ancient Egyptian queen widely renowned for her timeless beauty. With Botox injections along your jawline and into your hardworking neck muscles, your beauty can be just as alluring as Nefertiti’s.

How Long Does a Botox Injection Last?

Most patients notice that the effects of their Botox treatment last for about three to four months. However, it is important to realize that each patient is unique, and several factors may make your Botox injections effective for a longer or shorter time period.

For instance, the amount of Botox that is injected will affect its longevity. The more units of Botox that are injected, the longer the effects will probably last.

It also is possible that the strength of the muscles being treated may affect longevity. Stronger muscles will require more Botox to achieve lasting effects.

If you opt for follow-up treatments, this will also lengthen the effectiveness of your Botox injections. Follow ups may extend the life of your Botox treatments to six or eight months.

Does Botox Hurt?

Most patients report only slight discomfort associated with Botox injections, with the area between the eyebrows typically being the most sensitive. A numbing cream or some ice may be used before beginning the injections to minimize any discomfort.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Rare, temporary side effects may affect some patients. About one to five percent of patients who receive Botox injections experience mild droopiness of the eyelid or eyebrow. This side effect usually disappears within no more than two weeks. Other rare side effects may include headaches and slight bruising at the injection site.

Will Everyone Know I Had Botox?

People who know you well may remark on you appearing younger, fresher, or happier the next time they see you. However, when Botox injections are performed skillfully, most people probably won’t know that you had them.
