What is BOTOX?
Whether we like it or not, wrinkles start to become a concern for many of us as early as our 30s. As we age, this worry rarely wanes; in fact, it often worsens as the lines and dynamic wrinkles throughout our faces become more pronounced and distracting. While wrinkles are natural and bound to occur at some point throughout our lives, it is possible (and even simple) to slow down the aging process with the help of BOTOX Cosmetic at Seven Heart Medspa. Our Las Vegas, NV practice is thrilled to offer this highly effective and world-renown product to men and women alike.
BOTOX is crafted from a strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscles in the face that work to create expressions in the forehead area. By freezing these underlying muscles, this advanced wrinkle relaxer can dramatically decrease the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, allowing the skin on top to still appear smooth as you express yourself throughout your day.
"My face was looking wrinkled and my skin was looking loose because of aging. So, I decided get Dysport in my forehead and crows feet. Wow! What a difference Dysport makes me look! Young and fresh again. Just amazing! A special, "Thank you", to Dr. Rodelyn for being so gentle and making my visit pain free. She even used a special cold air stream to numb my injection sites. Just awesome!! I definitely recommend going to Seven Heart Med Spa and getting your injections be it Dysport or filler. Especially if you are extremely sensitive."- R.S. / Yelp / Jul 17, 2021
"I follow Rodelyn wherever she goes! She is the best injector in Vegas. She is professional, listens to my needs and desires. She alleviates any concerns I have. She is wonderful!! Thank you, Rodelyn!!"- J.D. / Yelp / Oct 22, 2021
"I've been going to Catja for filler for about a year now and she's the only person I trust enough with my face. She's corrected my gummy smile, does my quarterly Botox, and we recently did cheeks and chin to balance out my lips more. She's incredibly nice, knowledgeable, patient, professional, experienced, and will not go overboard on you. Catja will also make sure you're symmetrical and her pre and post injection care instructions are top notch (listen to her!). She'll give you her honest opinion and recommendations but she's also not afraid to tell you "no" or that something would be too much. I had a facial with her for the first time today and it was HEAVEN. I can't recommend Catja enough, you're in good hands."- A.H. / Facebook / Sep 25, 2021
"I can't say enough positive things about Catja, she's truly a gem. I've been seeing her for about a year now and she's the only person I trust with my face. I initially went to see her to help me with my "gummy smile" and the work she did was natural, yet a huge transformation for me. She's professional, educated, experienced, gentle, genuine, and will keep you looking natural, symmetrical, and improved. I highly recommend her for anything she does, especially filler and facials."- A.H. / Google / Oct 22, 2021
"I went there to met the NP Rodelyn and she is amazing, she was very professional and honest about my procedure, I was really 😮😲😮 with my results, I didn't realize how bad my skin was until she showed me the before and after pictures. So I do really recommend to go there"- O.D. / Google / Nov 16, 2021
WHO CAN GET BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are ideal for individuals who would like to smooth out the appearance of lines on their face with a simple, nonsurgical solution. This treatment can be wonderful for patients of a variety of ages, even those as young as 30 who would like to get a head start on slowing the natural aging process. BOTOX Cosmetic can be a wonderful option for those whose foreheads are incredibly active as they make expressions. These lines can present themselves as horizontal folds or vertical wrinkles between the brows. To accurately determine if you're a candidate for this treatment, you will need to attend a consultation with a member of our aesthetic team.
how are botox injections done?
BOTOX treatments are completed in one of our private treatment rooms at Seven Heart Medspa. If it is your first time to visit us in Las Vegas, NV to get BOTOX, we often perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make different expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., to help us to determine where the injections would be best placed. This product is most commonly applied between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.
After your skin is cleared of any oil, dirt, and makeup, BOTOX will be injected under the skin with a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help lessen discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but this usually is not necessary. BOTOX treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Once your session is over, you may return to your usual activities with no needed recovery period or downtime.
results after botox
After your procedure, you may return to your daily schedule. However, strenuous activities like exercise should be skipped for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face since doing this may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of the skin can appear bruised, red, or swollen for a couple of days, but you will not develop any long-lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the final effects of BOTOX become visible. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You can speak to your injector about how often to make a follow-up appointment at Seven Heart Medspa to maintain your results.
How many BOTOX units/injections will I likely need?
The number of BOTOX treatments administered will vary based on individual needs and the depth and severity of your lines. Our team will recommend the correct number of BOTOX units based on your treatment outcomes and whether you want to treat the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To keep up with your aesthetic results, our practitioners might suggest getting BOTOX services every few months at Seven Heart Medspa.
Can I have BOTOX other cosmetic treatments?
BOTOX procedures often pair well with other nonsurgical services at Seven Heart Medspa for those who prefer to address signs of aging. If you experience deeper and more extensive lines and wrinkles, our aesthetic team might suggest adding a dermal filler to help you achieve optimal results. To further enhance your younger-looking appearance, we may discuss additional complementary treatments, including facials or PRP with microneedling.
What's the variation between fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Although wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, are provided to minimize fine lines by temporarily preventing your muscle contractions, fillers are a different category of aesthetic injections that enhance volume in the face. Fillers are designed to add volume to hollow features and reduce static wrinkles. Our team can discuss if you may be a good candidate for a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to further enhance your BOTOX outcomes.
express yourself without wrinkle worries
At Seven Heart Medspa, our multi-talented team of medical aestheticians and cosmetic specialists are thrilled to offer BOTOX injectable treatments to women and men who want to look younger as they express themselves. This advanced formula is designed to freeze the muscles underneath the skin to prevent lines from forming as you laugh, smile, and enjoy life. To find out if you could be a candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic or BOTOX for migraine/medical care, reach out to our office in Las Vegas, NV and schedule your private consultation with a member of our team.
