Botox® is an injectable made from botulinum toxin that helps reduce wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles in problem areas like the forehead, eyelids, and lips. It is a simple, 10-minute procedure requiring no recovery time after administration. 

At PhySlim, we offer high-quality, undiluted Botox® to help you restore that youthful, freshened-up look. Whether you are looking to return elasticity to mature skin or seek a preventative measure against wrinkles, our facial aesthetic treatments will have you covered. 

Understanding How Botox® Works

During your procedure, a minimal amount of Botox® is administered through an injection to the areas of the face you’d like to smooth out. 

This neurotoxin helps to block signals between your brain nerves and your muscles, temporarily stopping the skin creases caused by frowning or smiling. 

Targeted Areas for Botox®

Some of the most common areas where Botox® is administered include the forehead, the under-eye area, and around the lips. 

Botox® for Forehead Lines

Botox® can help erase the horizontal lines on the forehead caused by the natural skin aging process. It can also become a preventative measure for new wrinkles when administered regularly.

Botox® for Under Eye Issues

Botox® applied under the eyes is often referred to as a “no-knife eye lift” or a “Botox® brow lift,” as it helps to give a younger, fresh look to the eye area. 

When injected to treat crow’s feet, this procedure relaxes the muscles that cause the eyelids to appear droopy, reducing the appearance of those creases under the eyes.

Botox® for Lips

Botox® injections are administered around the lips and help reduce fine lines or correct a “gummy” smile. Botox® can also treat the frown lines around the mouth that can make your facial expression look sad or upset.

What to Expect During Your Botox® Procedure with PhySlim

All our facial aesthetic treatments are performed in the office by our qualified physicians. Once you arrive at our clinic, we will follow the next steps:

1. Preparing for Your Botox® Procedure

Before starting your Botox® procedure, we will conduct multiple medical evaluations to ensure it is the proper treatment for you. 

We will also ask you beforehand to stop taking certain medications, such as allergy medications, blood thinners, sleep aids, or muscle relaxers. 

2. During Your Procedure

To prevent pain in the injection site, your doctor will apply a small amount of topical anesthetic. 

The procedure itself does not take more than 10 minutes, and you’ll be able to continue with your normal activities right after it’s been administered.

3. After Your Botox® Procedure

Although you will be able to leave home right after your procedure, try to avoid any strenuous activities for at least the rest of the day. Botox® results will become visible as soon as two days after treatment and usually last up to four months. 

Avoid rubbing the injection site to extend its durability, and schedule your next appointment on time. Botox is generally effective in most people for about three months, so you will want to schedule a follow-up appointment every three months to maintain the results. 

Botox® Side Effects

Temporary side effects from Botox® are usually mild and tend to disappear without needing to visit your doctor. These may include:

  • Headache
  • Pain at the injection site
  • Mild allergic reaction, such as a rash or hive 
  • Sinus issues
  • Sore throat
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Nausea

If these symptoms do not subside within a couple of days or suddenly worsen, don’t hesitate to call us right away for guidance
