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.
"I've had Botox and dysport before from another injector, and this was my first experience with Catija. I was so blown away with how thorough she was and how talented she was. I felt as though now I am more educated and so well taken care of. I now have my new girl and can't wait for future appointments! Catija, you are truly an artist and thank you!!"- SP / Other / May 15, 2021

"Glad to know that Rodelyn joined your team! She’s the sweetest and of course the best injector in the field. She knows exactly what I want so I make sure I go wherever she goes."- J.A. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2021
"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
"This medspa offers so much! I met with Catja for cosmetic injections. Catja is an injection miracle worker! She is so professional and skilled in her technique. I was getting married and super picky about ensuring my results were natural looking. I talked to her about my concerns and she was attentive and granular on addressing the detail I was looking for. The spa is undergoing a large building expansion to offer more services. I'm excited to try their hormonal and weight loss treatments."- K.S. / Facebook / May 26, 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.
