Is Botox on your Christmas list? Wanting to look smooth and refreshed around the Christmas tree? Santa asked us to help you with that! Botox Cosmetic is a well-loved product that we’ve been using at MediSpa Maui for years. Botox is a great way to reduce lines and wrinkles in various areas of your face and neck. Botox is a purified protein that comes from a bacteria. This is a natural protein that works between the nerve ending and the muscle. Botox blocks the communication between the nerve ending and the muscle so the muscle doesn’t contract. This means softer facial expressions!
Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved for use in the frown lines and the squint lines. At MediSpa Maui we inject Botox in the forehead, between the eyes, the chin, in the down turn of the mouth, and in the muscles of the neck. Botox also has many FDA approved uses for medical reasons such as migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botox has been around for more than 20 years from a medical standpoint, and 8 to 10 years from a cosmetic standpoint. It is a very safe way to reduce lines and wrinkles of action. It provides a smooth and soft look by reducing the action of these muscles. Picture yourself at special holiday events with a smoother forehead and softened crow’s feet.
Common dosages include 20 to 25 units in the frown area (between eyebrows), and about 12 units per side in the squint area along the eyes. Every Botox treatment is unique, so come in and see us and we’ll determine the best number of units for your needs.
