Botox Basics

Do you want smoother and younger looking skin? Botox Cosmetic is a non surgical injectable that temporarily smooths out frown lines, brow lines, crows feet, and other pesky wrinkles. At Aura Skin Spa, our physicians use the latest and safest methods for administering Botox to our patients. A Botox treatment is so quick, it can be done during your lunch break or before work. With no down time or recovery time necessary, you can resume your normal work schedule and most of your activities.

How does Botox work?

Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein created by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Upon injection, it works to relax the muscles that create frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crows feet. As a result of Botox injections, you will begin to notice reduced wrinkles at the injection sight. This smooth appearance will last up to four months.

Are you a good candidate?

If you are between the ages of 18 and 65 and looking for a more youthful appearance, Botox may be the right treatment for you. At Aura Skin Spa, consultations are free and are done with a board certified physician. During your consultation, the physician will ask what your goals and expectations are along with a history of your medical health. Be prepared to share any medications or supplements you are currently taking. Those in general good health are typically great candidates for Botox. If you are nursing or pregnant, you should wait until after you are no longer the source of nourishment for your baby before you pursue Botox.

What happens during a Botox treatment?

Your Botox treatment will occur at Aura Skin Spa. Our comfortable and private office offers you the space and solitude you need to have a relaxing appointment. Our treatments are performed only by board certified physicians who have the experience and qualifications to administer Botox Cosmetic. Anesthesia is not necessary but the injection sight may be numbed with a cream or ice pack to help prevent discomfort. You will begin to notice a more youthful and smooth appearance within only days after your Botox treatment.
