If you ever look at yourself in the mirror and see more wrinkles than you’d like, join the crowd because so many Americans struggle with this every day. Botox Bar is a great solution to issues such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. At the Botox Bar in Dallas, TX we offer the number one selling product of its kind with minimal downtime, a fast treatment process, and great results.
What Is Botox Bar Used For?
One of the most popular uses for Botulinum is frown lines. These happen when tissue gathers between the eyebrows. Many people think that frown lines are present near lips and nose but they actually occur in between the eyebrows due to years of squinting, smiling, and frowning. These facial actions leave deep wrinkles in this area which can spread across the forehead and even onto the bridge of your nose.
As we age our skin consistently undergoes changes. Many of these changes happen in the face and crow’s feet cause aging generations to feel self-conscious as they get older. These are small lines that spread from the corner of your eyes. They develop from constant muscle contractions when you make any facial expression.
Some of the lines can be deep and prominent and other smaller ones form around. They are most visible when you smile and they can worsen over time. Botox Bar injections can help tighten the skin around your eyes which will lessen the appearance of crow’s feet.
The skin on our forehead is called the glabella. Depending on the shape of your face, genetics, and how tight your skin is, some people may experience wrinkles here even at an early age. Those wrinkles are called glabellar lines.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of these lines, we can help reduce or even eliminate them. Keep in mind there is a difference between these and frown lines. Frown lines occur horizontally closer to the eyebrows. Glabellar lines are on the forehead near the center.
In many cases, you may be dissatisfied with how loose your skin is in a variety of areas on your face. Loose skin can occur around the lips, nose, chin, neck, and eyes. This is simply something that happens over time due to age and genetics. It can also happen if you’ve lost weight at some point in your life. That excess skin now accumulates in certain places and loosens over time. The end result is you feeling unhappy with your appearance but treatments can help.
Many people are unhappy with the appearance of their lips and they would like them to look more full. This can be performed on someone of any age and it usually involves an injection near the upper lip. This relaxes the muscle causing the lip to roll upwards which makes your lips look more voluminous. In addition to increasing the definition of your lips, it can also help with the overall contour and shape of them.
What Is Botox Bar?
It comes from the C. botulinum bacteria which is found in soil, forests, lakes, and the intestinal tract of many animals. It’s a naturally occurring bacteria containing harmless spores. The only time problems encounter is when the spores transform causing the cell population to increase to a dangerous level. This is when they produce Botulinum toxin. However, when used correctly, patients and doctors have very little to worry about.
Contrary to popular belief, there are actually five different strains of Botulinum even though most refer to all of them as “Botox.” In reality, it’s a brand name and there are a variety of other brands out there. Injections contain small doses of the toxin with the intention of paralyzing muscles causing them to stiffen or tighten. When this happens it helps many to experience tightening in their faces resulting in a younger more youthful appearance.
How Does Botox Work?
This treatment targets your nervous system which creates a disruption in how the nerves process signaling. This disruption results in stimulated muscle contractions and paralysis of the surrounding muscle. For this to happen, it requires something called acetylcholine to attach to muscle cell receptors and cause the cells to shorten.
Injections lessen the release of acetylcholine which stops the muscles from contracting altogether. As a result, the muscles become less stiff. When the muscles are less stiff the wrinkles appear softer which results in a younger appearance.
How Long Do The Effects Last?
The effects of Botulinum can vary based on the individual and how many injections you receive. Ultimately, it’s important to know that the results are temporary and can last anywhere between 3-12 months. The depth of the wrinkles, your age, and your genetics will impact how long the results last. It is recommended that most patients come in every 3-6 months for follow-up injections to make sure that we stay on top of everything.
The good news is that it only takes between 24-48 hours to see results. If you have something coming up on your schedule that you would like to look your best for. You can come in, receive injections, and walk into the event in as little as a day or two feeling confident in your appearance.
Things To Know Beforehand
It’s Never Too Early or Too Late
There’s never a wrong time to do something for your appearance. We all want to look our best because when we look our best, we feel our best. That said, you’re never too old or too young for injections. No one ever really needs this treatment, they get it because they want it.
If you are an older individual you might require more injections and more follow-ups than someone who is younger but you don’t ever have to feel like you will get turned away for any reason.
Booking a Consultation Is the First Step
As with most treatments, taking that first step is the hardest part. You might feel nervous, concerned, or that you don’t know what you’re talking about. That’s okay because we will walk you through all the steps and necessary prep-work to ensure you know what will happen when you come in for the treatment. You’ll undergo a physical exam, we’ll look at your medical history, and then you’ll undergo the treatment. It’s simple and painless.
The Treatment Is Very Fast
Two of the most common questions associated with this treatment are “how long does it take” and “does it hurt?” The good news is with consultation and treatment, you can be in and out of our office in as little as 10 minutes. You might have to ice the treated area for a few minutes following treatment and that’s it. You can continue on with whatever you had planned be it work, shopping, eating, etc.
The one thing we recommend you don’t do following injection is lay down for a few hours or shift positions in an unnatural way. There is a slight chance that fluid can move to different locations immediately following the treatment so it’s recommended that you hit the gym before coming in rather than after.
It’s also suggested that you don’t lay on your back or stomach for a couple of hours. This will ensure that the fluid remains in place and performs at its best.
Results Can Take a Few Days
While we all want everything to happen right away, results may vary. Some people may experience results in as little as 24 hours where it might take someone else as long as five days. It’s important to understand that ahead of time. Rest assured that after a week or two you will be able to experience the full results of the treatment.
Follow-Ups Are Likely
Follow-ups are always recommended because no one patient is created equal. The treatment is designed to fit the needs of everyone but each person requires their own level of special attention. Not to mention that every muscle is different and one side of your face may require a bit more attention than the other. The main point of a follow-up is for us to check everything and make sure it’s exactly how you imagined. You may not even need follow-up injections at that time.
How Much Research Has Gone into Botox Bar?
Botulinum is backed by 16 years of research, studies, and a track record of success in helping patients all over the world achieve the skin they want. It’s approved in 98 countries and deemed safe by more than 528 peer-reviewed articles across medical and scientific journals.
Is There a Substitute?
Keep in mind that there are a variety of other products out there and this is simply the name of a brand. But, there is a reason why we choose to use this over the others because it has so much research and trust behind it. There aren’t many equal substitutes and for that reason, we recommend it.
Will My Face Look Uneven or Unnatural?
This is a sensitive treatment that we take a lot of pride in. We are licensed and trained medical professionals specializing in aesthetics. Following treatment, you will still look exactly like yourself and after a few days, you can watch the amazing transformation. Your face will not look unnatural or uneven and we will schedule a follow-up to ensure you’re satisfied with the results.
Is It Only for Women?
No, this treatment is for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin. In fact, more and more men are choosing it because they’re bothered by the changes that occur over time.
Do I Need To Be 40 Years or Older?
Your age will never determine your eligibility for this treatment and many medical professionals report seeing growth in patients in their 30’s. The bottom line is, no one should have to feel self-conscious or unhappy with their appearance.
How Many Injections Will I Receive?
The number of injections you receive will vary based on your age, genetics, and where you’re getting them. Typically crow’s feet take three injections on both sides, frown lines take five injections, and forehead lines take five injections as well.
