Wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyebrows are some of the most challenging cosmetic concerns to treat. This is largely due to the fact that the skin on the forehead does not have much give and does not normally contain a significant amount of volume, meaning restoring skin volume to this area is not a workable solution. What options does that leave you for smoothing the fine lines and wrinkles? At Beautique Medical in Knoxville, TN we understand the unique challenges of forehead wrinkles and believe that Botox may be the solution you’re looking for.
Botox: The World’s Best Neurotoxin
For decades this is a treatment that has been trusted around the world for treating the most visible signs of aging on the upper face. While botulinum toxin is an FDA-approved treatment for several health concerns, including migraine headaches, this neurotoxin truly shines as an anti-aging treatment. And with the world’s best neurotoxin and most reputable leading anti-aging treatment, the results speak for themselves. If you’re looking for a reliable treatment to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead, then look no further than Botox.
What Are Neurotoxins?
A neurotoxin is a substance or chemical compound that directly affects the function of nerves in the body. There are several cosmetic treatments that use neurotoxins as a way to manipulate the nerves in the body to create a desired effect. For this treatment, the neurotoxin used is a pure botulinum toxin, which is known to alter the reaction of musculoskeletal nerves.
Why Are Neurotoxins Effective?
Neurotoxins may sound complicated, but the principle behind them is simple. Because all functions of the human body are controlled by neurotransmitters, a neurotoxin can effectively prevent or block those neurotransmitters from performing. For this treatment, botulinum toxin is used to prevent the activity of musculoskeletal nerves on the face for a period of time, usually about 3 to 4 months.
How is Beautique Medical Anti-Aging Different?
A good skin care routine is the foundation of all medical anti-aging (INSERT LINK TO SKINMEDICA). The second most important aspect of anti-aging is consistent Botox Cosmetic at Beautique Medical Anti-Aging.
Botox Cosmetic™ takes a complete and through understanding of anatomy, location and depth of the skin, muscles, and nerves, and ARTISTRY to achieve a natural result. We specialize fixing botched results from other providers and creating a beautiful and symmetrical result that doesn’t look ‘done’, frozen, or unnatural.
When hiring a contractor to paint your house, you make sure they are qualified (insured, licensed). Would you hire this same contractor to paint a mural in your living room? No, you would search for both a qualified contractor who is an artist. This is the same with medical anti-aging. Find qualified medical providers who specialize in beautiful, artistic anti-aging results with many before and after photos.
Nurse Shara trademarked her “Designer ‘Tox’ technique. Our facial anatomy is complex and made up of opposing muscles: elevator muscles and depressor muscles (along with arteries, veins, nerves, fat, and skin). These muscles counteract one another, so the injector has to understand this interaction for perfect placement and results. Botox Cosmetic™ may look effortless and predictable, but they are not, unless you use the Designer ‘Tox technique for results that are soft, smooth, natural, and more predictable. “ I love the way our Designer ‘Tox method can create a sexy lateral brow lift to open the eyes , create more balance and lift, and freshen our already beautiful patient’s appearance” says Nurse Shara.
For our younger patients, our signature Baby’Tox technique, created by our very own Nurse Shara, lifts the lateral brow, keeps them looking natural, smooth, and wrinkle free but never frozen or odd. “I love the way a little Designer Baby’Tox can create a sexy lateral brow lift to open the eyes, create more balance and lift, and freshen our already beautiful patient’s appearance,” says Nurse Shara.
Why would younger patients come in for Botox when they are already young and beautiful? Sure they can smooth out any unwanted lines and wrinkles, but the key to Designer Baby’Tox is prevention.
Take a piece of paper. Fold it. Keep folding it in the same place. This movement over time will create deep lines in the paper. This is the same with our skin. Over time, our wrinkles and lines get deeper and deeper. When we start Botox Cosmetic™ at a younger age, we can slow down the wrinkles from developing into deeper lines as we age.
What Does Botox Treat?
This is a treatment that is designed specifically to treat the versicle and horizontal lines on the forehead and between the eyebrows. As a cosmetic treatment, this neurotoxin can reverse the visible signs of aging on the face, and particularly the moderate and severe wrinkles associated with aging. Botox has also recently been approved by the FDA to relax the muscles of the upper lip, which can create a fuller appearance to the mouth.
Moderate to Severe Frown Lines
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.
Moderate to Severe Crow’s Feet
When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.
Moderate to Severe Forehead Lines
When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.
How Does Treatment Work?
As an injectable treatment, this neurotoxin works by being injected directly into the muscles of the face. Several small injections are made at key treatment sites to relax facial muscles to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as relax areas of the face to enhance a more youthful appearance.
What Can You Expect From Treatment?
There are several steps that are involved in injectable treatments. At our clinic, we place great importance on tailoring our treatments to your exact needs and appearance goals.
Real Patient Results
You will first need to attend a free consultation appointment. The consultation allows us to gather certain information about you, including your history of cosmetic treatments and any drug allergies you may have. We will examine the treatment area and discuss your expectations for treatment. At this time we may also perform a standard allergy test if this is your first time using a neurotoxin.
Before your treatment, we will provide you with a list of pre-treatment instructions to help you prepare for your appointment. Some pre-treatment instructions may include:
- Do not consume alcohol for at least 24 hours
- Avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements
- Do not use Retinol products
- Eat lightly before your appointment
We ask that you reschedule your appointment if you develop a rash, blemish, or cold sore on the treatment area. If you have a history of cold sores, please let us know. You will not need to arrange for transportation on the day of your appointment.
Step One: Prep and Guide
Our first step will be to prepare your skin for treatment. This will involve gently cleansing and sanitizing the skin to remove any lingering make-up, dirt, oil, or bacteria. We will then apply a topical numbing cream to the designated treatment area to ensure your comfort during the treatment. Our technician may also make guide marks to streamline treatment.
Step Two: Injection
This treatment will involve several small injections made with a thin needle. This portion of the treatment will only take a few minutes. From start to finish, your appointment will last about 30 minutes.
After your treatment, we will provide you with a list of post-treatment instructions to guide you through your recovery period. These are common instructions that will ensure you have an ideal recovery from this treatment. Some post-treatment instructions may include:
- Do not touch, massage, or scrub treated area
- Avoid lying down for at least 4 hours
- No excessive heat, sweating, or strenuous exercise
- Avoid direct sunlight
Recovery and Results
The majority of patients are recovered from the injections within 3 to 5 days of treatment. The results of the treatment will become noticeable within 7 to 14 days. We may ask that you attend a follow-up appointment to see how well you are responding to treatment.
