What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable solution that temporarily and safely paralyzes the muscles that control facial movement. In doing so, it is clinically proven to reduce or eliminate dynamic wrinkles.

In addition, as the muscles are not constantly in motion, the skin above relaxes for a smoother and more youthful look. For excessive sweating, Botox works a bit differently. It blocks the release of acetylcholine, which triggers the sweat glands to perspire. The result is dry underarms and no more embarrassing sweat stains on your clothes. Botox is also an effective treatment for teeth grinding at night, relaxing the muscles that cause involuntary jaw movements. At Pretty Please Aesthetics, our Sacramento Botox specialists adjust the treatment to your needs, injecting just the right amount of Botox to achieve the desired effect.

Benefits of Botox

Botox helps you look and feel like the best version of yourself. By smoothing wrinkles on your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes, your face takes on a fresher and rejuvenated look.

When our highly trained injectors administer it, your results will look entirely natural and never frozen. It’s a straightforward solution for teeth clenching (nocturnal bruxism) and excessive sweating as well. Botox goes to work quickly, with visible results in just two weeks. And unlike surgery, there are no scars, pain, downtime, or surgical risks. In one fast and easy visit to Pretty Please Aesthetics, you can enjoy a fresher and more youthful-looking you. Pretty Please Aesthetics is also proud to be a part of Allē by Allergan Aesthetics! Through this program, you can earn points for qualifying cosmetic treatments such as Botox and fillers that can be used toward future purchases. The points you earn are valid for 12 months.

Am I a candidate for Botox?

Botox has very few contraindications.

However, there are some instances when it is not a good fit. For example, you won’t be able to have Botox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Certain conditions, such as a history of keloid scars, active infection at the injection site, certain neuromuscular disorders, or allergies to Botox ingredients are also contraindicated. Your Botox provider at Pretty Please Aesthetics can let you know more at your consultation. If you are eligible for Botox, you can get treated the same day.

Botox Injections

Our dedicated Sacramento Botox estheticians will help you discover the correct approach to meet your aesthetic objectives. Your Botox injection treatments will be unique and based on which Botox approach you choose.

Botox for Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles, also known as expression lines, are often the first sign of aging. As you get older, they only get worse. While Botox does not stop the aging process, it can eliminate the facial wrinkles and fine lines you see in the mirror for up to six months. It is ideal if you want to see dramatic and long-lasting age reversal without any downtime.

In clinical studies, 95% of participants treated with Botox reported satisfaction with its age-defying results. At Pretty Please Aesthetics, our staff goes above and beyond to ensure you are equally as thrilled with your Botox results by working with you one on one to create a facial rejuvenation plan that leaves you looking like yourself, only better.

Botox for “Resting Bitch Face”

No woman likes to be told to “smile more!”, especially when you aren’t angry at all! Pretty Please Aesthetics offers a treatment that will put an end to those unwanted comments. With the “Resting Bitch Face Remedy,” our trained Sacramento botox injectors can gently lift your downturned mouth corners by relaxing the muscles that pull your mouth into a frowning position when your face is at rest.

The result is a pleasing disposition that makes you look positively beautiful! (This treatment uses Botox botulinum toxin along with dermal fillers as needed, determined by you and your injector.)

Botox for Sweating

If you sweat more than others, when it’s not hot out, or when not doing intensive exercise, you may have excessive sweating; which is also known as hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating is more common than you’d think. Botox is FDA approved for excessive underarm sweating. Sacramento botox clients that come in for treatment at Pretty Please Aesthetics see up to an 87% decrease in sweat production in the treated area.

Botox for Teeth Clenching and Grinding

If you are tired of sleepless nights and pain due to jaw clenching or nighttime teeth grinding, Botox can help. Although Botox is not a bruxism cure, it is effective at controlling the symptoms. By injecting a small dose into the temporal and masseter muscles, which control jaw movement, the muscles relax enough to stop involuntary jaw grinding and clenching.

Botox Recovery

Some people put off treating wrinkles, excessive perspiration, or teeth grinding for years because they can never seem to find the time. With Botox, recovery time won’t be an issue. Botox is considered a “lunchtime treatment,” which means you can go back to work and social activities the same day.

Your skin may look pink or feel tender for a few hours. Right after your Botox treatment, it is normal to have swelling or bumps at the injection site. These go away in about an hour. There is nothing special you need to do. It’s imperative not to lay down, wear a hat, touch your face, exercise, sit in a sauna, or swim for 4 hours after your injections. And avoid rubbing the treated area or participating in intense physical activities for 24 hours. It’s that simple.

Botox Results

The beauty of Botox is that it starts working fast. You can expect to start seeing results in about two weeks. At the two-week mark, we will ask you to come in for a refinement visit to assess your results and make any needed adjustments.

The results of Botox are temporary but long-lasting. For wrinkles, Botox lasts between three to six months. For bruxism, Botox lasts four to eight months. Botox for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) keeps underarms dry for four to 14 months. The duration of your results may vary as everyone is different.

Are there any alternatives to Botox?

Botox is the leading cosmetic muscle relaxant in the world, but it is not your only option. At Pretty Please Aesthetics, we are proud to be one of the few Sacramento med spas that carry all three of the most popular anti-wrinkle injectables: Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport.

Xeomin

Xeomin is one of the top Botox alternatives. Like Botox and Dysport, it eliminates frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in a few quick injections. Rarely, some people develop a resistance to the ingredients in Botox. If you had Botox in the past and it stopped working, it is possible that you developed antibodies to its key ingredients. Thankfully, that doesn’t mean you have to live with wrinkles and fine lines on your forehead, between your brows, or around your eyes. FDA approved in 2010 for the temporary treatment of frown lines, Xeomin contains just a single ingredient: botulinum toxin A.

Additional Reading

It does not contain any additives. Because Xeomin has the purest formulation, it is an excellent alternative for facial wrinkles and fine lines that don’t respond as expected to a Botox treatment. Xeomin costs roughly the same per unit as Botox. Likewise, the number of Xeomin units is usually equal to or similar to the number of Botox units needed to see the desired effect. The injection process is identical. While every individual is different, the Xeomin results usually last about the same length of time as Botox.

Dysport

Dysport is a temporary non-surgical wrinkle treatment that is FDA approved for vertical lines between the eyebrows, also called “11 lines”. It also works beautifully to eliminate crow’s feet around the eyes and forehead lines for a smoother, younger-looking complexion. The main ingredient in Dysport (abobotulinumtoxin A) is quite similar to Botox. Therefore, the FDA recommends using three times as much Dysport to see the same result as Botox. Depending on the number of units needed to achieve the same smooth, wrinkle-free complexion puts the total Dysport cost at roughly the same as a Botox treatment.

Additional Reading

While you might enjoy a slight cost savings depending on how many Dysport units you need, the true benefit is that some people find that Dysport lasts a little longer than Botox. This is mostly anecdotal, but it does seem to last longer in some individuals. Everyone is different. Generally speaking, the results are just as beautiful, and you can expect to be wrinkle-free for a similar length of time. Another benefit is that it diffuses more smoothly in the treated area of skin than Botox. With Dysport, there are no harsh edges between the treated and non-treated areas when making facial expressions. This makes it ideal for people who want an even softer and more refined result.
