We have medical practitioner on staff administering injectables which allows us the flexibility to provide botox and fillers with exceptional service. A complimentary consultation is the first step to assess goals and treat accordingly. Each patient is given information pre and post treatment to ensure the best results from their Elan Beauty experience.
What is Botox?
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulism bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause expression lines to form over time.
What does a treatment involve?
Our practitioner will administer several tiny injections of the best BOTOX® Cosmetic directly in the muscles that cause those moderate to severe expression lines.
Our practitioner will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in the treatment area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create an expression line vary markedly among individuals.
No anesthesia is required, although our practitioner may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most patients compare the sensation to a pin prick.
You may resume normal activity immediately. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe lines in the treatment area. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.
What areas can be treated?
Upper face: frown lines, crows feet, “bunny lines” (horzontal line between the brows)
Lower face: marrionette lines (lines at the corners of the mouth), chin, jawline contouring
Neck lines and neck lift
Botox can also be used to help certain conditions and ailments as well:
Excessive sweating / hyperhydrosis
Bruxism / facial slimming for the jawline
How often do I need to get treatments?
If you’re pleased with the results of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you’ll probably want to get on a treatment schedule so you can continue the benefits.
If you discontinue treatment, the expression lines gradually will look like they did before your botox treatment.
