The Fastest Way to a More Youthful Appearance: Botox Facial Fillers in Dearborn, MI
Although it goes by several other names (Dysport, Xeomin, Botox Cosmetics, and Jeuveau), Botox is the most common address when speaking about a facial filler that gives your skin a younger, wrinkle-free appearance. In small doses, it is used to relax moderate to severe frown lines and crow's feet in both men and women.
What Should You Expect When You Begin Your Botox Treatments at Beauty and Wellness Med Spa?
When you come to Beauty and Wellness Med Spa looking for Botox treatments, we will first consult with you regarding your cosmetic wishes. When it comes to Botox, we want to get a clear understanding of where you would like to see less wrinkles so we can come up with a customized treatment plan to give you the best results you are looking for. Once that is identified, we will schedule an appointment for your treatment to begin. Botox requires no anesthesia and can usually be done within a half hour. By injecting the Botox directly into the muscles with a very fine needle, it causes them to temporarily pause contractions, which cause wrinkles to appear.Schedule an Appointment
What Can You Expect After Your Botox Injections?
After your initial appointment, you may feel some pressure or notice some swelling and redness, all of which should subside within a few minutes. If you are like the majority of Botox patients, you will experience no side effects; however, some patients may experience minor side effects such as headaches and muscle stiffness. (For a list of potential side effects, click here.) The effects of the treatment will be noticed within a few days after injections and the results can last an average of three to four months. When you begin to notice the treatment wearing off, just contact us to schedule your next appointment.

Botox is an approved muscle-relaxing protein composed of onabotulinumtoxinA and is a derivative of Clostridium botulinum. Surprisingly, it can often be found in nature in places such as soil, forests, lakes and even in the intestines of mammals and fish. (The Botox we use comes from much more sanitary places.)
Botox is an option for anyone between the ages of 18 and 65, although if you are older than 65 and are interested in the treatment, we will be happy to speak with you. More importantly, Botox is NOT for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or people with neurological diseases. Be sure to consult with your primary care physician before you consider Botox.
The effects of the treatment will be noticed within a few days after injections and results can last on average three to four months. After that time, regular facial muscle activity will result in wrinkles and frown lines reappearing. Botox may then be re-administered. In some cases, your wrinkles and frown lines may appear smaller or less prominent due to your facial muscles shrinking.
Although most patients see little to no side effects from Botox treatments, occasionally people may experience some things after finishing a Botox treatment. These side effects may include:
- Drooping Eyelids
- Stiff or Weak Muscles
- Bruising at the Injection Site
- Swelling and Redness at the Injection Site
