At McShan Medical, we can help you look years younger in practically no time through the magic of Botox®. Our aesthetic nurse practitioners administer Botox injections in our Orlando medspa to erase the wrinkles, creases, and fine lines that gradually appear as we age. Botox injections only take a few minutes and there is no downtime necessary, so you can get back to your normal activities immediately following your treatment.
What to Expect
Wrinkles on your face are caused when your facial muscles contract under your skin when you express emotions. Through the years, those expression lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. Botox works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines and crow’s feet.
Our nurse practitioner will use a fine needle to inject Botox directly into the muscles. This only takes a few minutes and is usually painless. There may be some temporary bruising following the injections, but this will go away quickly. To maximize your results, we also recommend that you not lie down for at least an hour following the injections, you avoid rubbing the treated areas for at least 12 hours, and you refrain from strenuous exercise until the following day. Botox is a safe and effective procedure, though we do not recommend it for our clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
After treatment, most clients see results within a few days. Since the muscles that we’ve injected are no longer able to contract, you will notice a relaxing and softening of your facial areas controlled by these muscles. Your skin will remain smooth and unwrinkled for up to four months. Botox can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as facial fillers, for further skin enhancement.
