Botox® & Fillers® Q & A
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® injections relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and creases. When you make repeated facial expressions, the muscles in your face can become permanently contracted, creating wrinkles and lines and giving your resting expression a worried or angry look.
BOTOX contains a purified form of a bacteria called botulinum toxin, a chemical that prevents the transmission of nerve signals from reaching your muscles. BOTOX relaxes contracted facial muscles, allowing the skin above them to become smoother so wrinkles are reduced and your expression appears younger and more pleasant.
What type of wrinkles can BOTOX address?
The skilled team at Shantique Med Spa has extensive experience performing BOTOX to address:
- Forehead lines
- Eyebrow lines
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Lip lines
- Chin lines
- Tight neck bands
When BOTOX injections are administered by a trained expert like those at Shantique Med Spa, the results look naturally beautiful without affecting your ability to make regular facial expressions.
What are other types of aesthetic injections are available?
BOTOX improves wrinkles caused by repeated facial motions, but can’t address all types of wrinkles or cosmetic concerns. Shantique Med Spa offers many different types of injection therapy to treat wrinkles, sagging skin, and other common complaints.
