Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT is proud to offer BOTOX to all patients. Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults. BOTOX works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. BOTOX is a muscle relaxer made from a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A), and it temporarily freezes the movements of the muscle. We most commonly place BOTOX injections between the eyebrows, near Crow's feet, throughout the forehead and in some cases in the masseter muscle.
Is Botox For You?
BOTOX is great for both men and women who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their face without undergoing surgery. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive anti-aging treatment. For patients frustrated by forehead wrinkles or notice furrow lines between the eyebrows, BOTOX is a terrific nonsurgical option. Whenever your lines start to bother you, contact us to schedule an appointment to speak with our medical providers, to determine if BOTOX is the right treatment for you.
At Versailles Medical Spa, we complete BOTOX injectable treatments as an outpatient procedure. We are able to accommodate and provide treatment the same day as your scheduled complimentary consultation. To help us determine the injection sites, the medical provider may ask you to make several expressions using your upper face, such as squinting or frowning. Prior to being treated, the medical provider will then cleanse your skin, inject the BOTOX using a fine needle, and apply a cold compress to help prevent bruising and discomfort. Although unnecessary, you can ask for a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable.
Your Botox Treatments
After your BOTOX treatment, you may resume your daily routine, but you should avoid strenuous activity for at least a day. During the first night, we highly recommend sleeping upright and to avoid touching and/or massaging your face to prevent the BOTOX from shifting. Typically, it takes around 7 – 14 days to see the final results of your BOTOX treatment, and the results may last about 3 – 4 months. To maintain your results, look into Versailles Medical Spa's designed Needle-Free Serum to help your BOTOX results last longer.
