How to Incorporate Botox® Into Your Regular Beauty Routine

Your beauty routine can refine your features, improve skin quality, and create a pleasing appearance, but the damage done by sun and aging can add years to your face. So can the lines and wrinkles that are created by years of smiling and frowning. Thankfully, there’s a solution: Botox® Cosmetic.

At the Ageless Aesthetics and Salt Lounge in Indianapolis, Indiana, our team of expert RNs and aestheticians can relax the muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines using Botox Cosmetic. It’s a safe, effective series of injections that results in a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance. Botox doesn’t just hide wrinkles, it also prevents their recurrence, creating younger looking and feeling skin. 

Botox 101

The FDA approved Botox Cosmetic for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles in 2002, and in 2018, nearly 7.5 million Botox treatments were administered in the United States. Botox Cosmetic is a purified form of a toxin produced by the microbe that causes the food poisoning known as botulism. 

This toxin is called onobotulinumtoxinA, and when it’s injected into your facial muscles, it causes temporary paralysis, minimizing muscle contractions that create lines when you smile or frown. Regular Botox injections not only can keep your face looking young and line-free, but they also can repair damage over time, remodeling your skin to restructure collagen and fill in the creases between and around the eyes and in the forehead.

Getting Botox is fast, easy, and comfortable

Getting Botox at Ageless Aesthetics and Salt Lounge is a medispa-type experience. Our attentive staff makes sure you’re comfortable, and a skilled aesthetician administers your treatment. Our registered nurses ensure the procedure is handled with medical care.  

Your Botox injections are done using a very fine needle for repeated delivery along the deepest lines and wrinkles in your face. Many people don’t feel the injections at all. A few people say they feel a split-second pinch, like a mosquito bite. 

After your Botox experience

You can go back to your normal routine the same day. An ice pack can take away any lingering stinging sensations. You’ll see the preliminary results in about four days, and full results in 10 to 14 days. The effects of Botox can last for three to six months, at which point you’ll need the injections repeated as the toxin wears off.

Our team sets you up on a schedule so you never miss an injection, and your face can stay beautifully free of wrinkles and lines. Over time, you’ll probably be able to scale back the frequency of your injections and how much Botox is used, as your face repairs the damage done over the years.
