Would you like to improve the appearance of facial wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet and the lines formed between the forehead? At Golden Glow Medical Spa near St. Petersburg, FL we offer the solution through Botox!
Throughout the years, our faces formulate various expressions, causing repeated muscle contractions. These contractions, both voluntary and involuntary, lead to the formation of facial wrinkles. Botox provides us with a non-surgical and effective option to correct these facial wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance.
What is Botox?
Botox injections are used not only for therapeutic purposes but for cosmetic ones too. Unlike other fillers, which are superficially injected just beneath the skin, Botox is injected directly into the muscle. Because Botox is made of a neurotoxin, it blocks signals between the muscle and the brain, ultimately preventing muscle contraction in a localized area. However, these injections only affect targeted muscles while still allowing for facial expression. When the muscle relaxes, wrinkles smooth out and soften. Botox can be used for any type of wrinkle that has not been caused by sun damage or stretching of the skin due to gravity. Results are usually best on expression lines, such as those around the eyes and forehead.
Did you know…
that 11 million women have undergone Botox? In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that it is the most common cosmetic treatment requested in America, with numbers at an all-time high. More than a million treatments are performed every year, and it isn’t just the rich and famous indulging in the liquid facelift. People of all economic backgrounds get Botox because of its affordability.
What is the procedure like?
At Golden Glow, our team of experienced professionals employs advanced injection techniques in order to deliver exceptional results with minimum discomfort. During a Botox treatment, a very fine needle will be utilized to inject the filler into the facial muscles of the face. The procedure is performed in-office and just under a few minutes. This allows our patients to schedule a Botox treatment on their way home from work or even on their lunch hour! In addition, there is no downtime involved, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
Results of a smoother and refreshed complexion will become apparent within a few days of injection; however, the filler will continue to work for up to two weeks, revealing continued improvements. The results may range from four to six months, depending on the area treated. It is recommended for patients to receive maintenance treatments, in the form of touch-ups, in order to maintain optimum results.

Are there any side effects?
Injection site reactions may occur post-treatment. These side effects are normal and should subside naturally within 48 hours. Such side effects may include headaches, pain, bruising, redness and swelling. We recommend for our patients to avoid rubbing the treated area or laying down during the first few hours post-treatment.
Botox is not recommended for individuals who present with a neurological problem as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoiding blood thinners, such as Aspirin, Ibuprofen and alcohol, for a few days prior to treatment, may lessen the chance of bleeding and bruising.
