Botox in Montgomery, AL

Now a household name, Botox was approved for cosmetic use in 2002. Since then, it has become wildly popular due to its rejuvenating and preventative results. Botox is a safe, purified botulinum toxin that reduces muscle movement by binding to the muscle’s receptor. the less the muscle moves, the less wrinkle visibility there is.

Botox is best for treating crow’s feet, the vertical lines between the eyebrows, and forehead creases. It takes anywhere from 10 to 14 days to see results, and these results will last approximately 3 to 6 months. We are pleased to offer Botox treatments at our Montgomery, AL medspa.

How Botox works

Botox is a neuromodulator. This means it blocks the signal that the nerve sends to the muscle to make contractions. When the muscle doesn’t receive the message from the nerve, it doesn’t move — and therefore, doesn’t make the movement that causes wrinkles to form. This is how Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles and prevents future ones from forming.

Botox can improve/address:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Forehead creases
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Overly gummy smile
  • Excessive chin cleft
  • New and old facial scars
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Eyebrow asymmetry
  • Scowling corners of the mouth


What is the best age to have Botox treatments?

The honest answer is that there’s no “set” best age to have Botox treatments. Botox is obviously very popular with those in their 20s as preventative treatments, and they got their start with patients in the 30s and 40s. However, we also see patients have great results even in their later years. Our bodies and skin all age at different rates because we all take care of ourselves differently, have our own medical histories, and lead various lifestyles. What may not work for one woman in her 60s may work beautifully for another. Botox is equally effective no matter how old you are, but the severity of your wrinkles will be the true telling of if Botox is for you.

What is a unit?

A “unit” is how Botox is measured and priced. Different areas of the face require different amounts of units, and every patient will be different based on their muscle strength, the severity of their wrinkles, and how much mobility they want to maintain. A normal vial of Botox contains 100 units.

Treatment, downtime, and results

Using a fine needle, Botox is injected directly into the muscle that is causing the wrinkle. Treatment time is very quick and convenient, and patients can return to their regular day afterward. It’s important to avoid reclining for about four hours after treatment, and be gentle with your face.

Side effects can include bruising, swelling, and/or pain at the injection site, and side effects that are rarer include flu-like symptoms, headache, nausea, redness, and/or temporary facial drooping.

Botox provides excellent results that are fully visible within 10 to 14 days. Results will vary from patient to patient, depending on the severity of their wrinkles and the strength of muscles treated. Botox results typically last from 3 to 6 months.
