Our lives are mapped out in our skin and, sometimes, the map is more intense than we’d like it to be. Facial expressions, muscle movements, and habits such as smoking can lead to a more aged look. Cosmetic BOTOX® visibly reduces wrinkles and fines lines on your face and neck, giving you a younger, more rejuvenated look.
HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
At Sage Spa, our nurse injector, Candyce Bell, RN, uses BOTOX relax muscles. These injections help prevent chemical signals from reaching the nerves controlling muscles. In the case of Therapeutic BOTOX we are looking to block nerve impulses that causes muscles to contract which is what leads to our clients’ pain, tension, and headaches.
WHAT DOES THERAPEUTIC BOTOX TREAT?
Therapeutic BOTOX is used to treat a wide variety of conditions that affect nerves and muscles. It can help with TMJ disorders as well. Here are a few examples:
Hyperhidrosis - Excessive Sweating
Cervical Dystonia - Painful Neck Spasms
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH BOTOX?
Therapeutic BOTOX is relatively quick and easy with each session typically lasting around twenty minutes. Results of the treatment can last two to four months. This is a non-surgical service that allows clients a welcome relief from a life of tension, pain, and annoying muscle spasms.
