Frequently Asked Questions
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a simple, non surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop over time. One 10-minute treatment — a few tiny injections — relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been widely tested and it is approved by the FDA for this use. The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, BOTOX® Cosmetic virtually “erases” these lines. Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, they'll know you’ve done something, they just won’t know what.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic right for you?
Doing all you can to look your best is important for your self-esteem, and BOTOX® Cosmetic may help you to do that. If reducing those tough lines between your brows would make you feel more approachable, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be for you. Thousands of appearance-conscious women and men have already discovered the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Not just models and movie stars, but ordinary people — teachers, mothers, and business people from all walks of life.
Who administers BOTOX® Cosmetic at The G Spa?
Only the specially trained professionals who have been certified in Botox Injection techniques perform this service at The G Spa.
What can I expect from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Your professional will determine exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although generally we prefer to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. It may develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup. You may resume normal activity immediately. Within days, you’ll see a marked improvement which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the overactive muscles whose repeated contractions cause the lines between your brows to form. So you can frown, smile, or look surprised — without the furrows, creases, and wrinkles. The most common side effects are headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea. BOTOX® Cosmetic should not be used if there is an infection at the injection site.
What exactly is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are usually confined to the injected region; it does not travel throughout the body.
Are BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments painful?
Discomfort is minimal and brief — most patients compare the sensation to bug bite. No anesthesia is required, although generally we prefer to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.
Will my lines look worse if I choose not to continue treatments?
No. Your lines gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance.
How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts up to four months.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic expensive?
When considering your facial aesthetic options, you’ll find that BOTOX® Cosmetic is quite affordable. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s 2000 survey, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the least expensive facial aesthetic procedures, ranking 7th in the 9 most widely-used procedures in the United States. Like other appearance-related investments, such as hair coloring and cuts, teeth whitening, and chemical peels, the cost must be weighed relative to your expectations.
