Metamorphosis Med Spa, in Downers Grove, Illinois, provides BOTOX treatments throughout the entire Chicago and DuPage County area.
Botox injections is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country for reducing or eliminating facial wrinkles. Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin A, which is approved by the FDA for a few different uses. When Botox is injected into the skin, it works by blocking the nerve muscles that are known to cause wrinkles and fine lines and it smooths them out. The result is skin that looks younger and more radiant.
After you receive treatment, you will notice an improvement in your wrinkles within the first day and the final results can be seen five days after treatment. There are many patients who get their desired results after only one injection, but there may be a need for additional treatments in the future.
There may be some minor bruising after treatment, but it will subside within a few days. The benefits of Botox can last up to 4-6 months, and there are some patients who have experienced results that have lasted for up to one year. Botox works gradually, and dramatic results can be seen 12-16 weeks after treatment started.
