Get real, noticeable results
BOTOX® targets the underlying cause of frown lines and crow’s feet – the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Our clinicians at Flawless Medical Spa in South County, Rhode Island are all medical professionals specially trained in BOTOX® administration.
How it works
BOTOX® is an injectable form of botulinum toxin, which temporarily blocks chemical signals to the facial muscles, reducing muscle activity, and allowing the facial muscles to relax. This creates a visible smoothing of crow’s feet and frown lines between your brows.
For crow’s feet, your clinician will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of each of your eyes. This temporarily reduces the activity of the muscle and results in a reduction in the appearance of the crow’s feet lines.
For frown lines, your clinician will administer 5 injections into the muscles of your forehead. This temporarily reduces the activity of the muscles, reducing the appearance of those lines.
Your Flawless clinician will discuss your goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the best treatment approach for you. After a BOTOX® treatment, your results will last up to 4 months. We typically recommend treatments every 3 – 4 months.
What to expect
The actual injection process typically takes about 10 minutes. Patients report that a BOTOX® injection feels like a pinch. If you are concerned about pain, your Flawless clinician can apply topical numbing cream before your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal to no downtime. You can return to your normal routine immediately after your treatment. You may experience some mild side effects like redness, swelling, itching, tenderness, or bruising at the injection site following a treatment. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own within a week of treatment.
You should notice initial results within 24 to 48 hours, and results can continue to improve for up to one month.
