Say Goodbye To Frown Lines And Crows Feet With BOTOX®.
BOTOX® has literally changed the way that the world looks at cosmetic procedures. Movie stars swear by it, and every magazine and television show has featured Botox as the number one way to rid our faces of those unwanted frown lines between the brows, horizontal worry lines in the forhead, and “crow's feet “ lines around the eyes and lines around the mouth and lips. All these WITHOUT surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetic, sometimes called "a facelift in a bottle", is a purified protein that is injected in miniscule amounts into the appropriate muscle, causing it to relax and improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet. This relaxing of the muscle allows the skin to smooth out persistent lines that developed over time. Royal Laser Med Spa is licensed to use BOTOX® to treat migraines and hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating).
BOTOX® is one of the most widely researched medicines in the word. In 2002 Botox was approved by the FDA to treat frown lines.
Correction with BOTOX® is very natural and most patients feel that they have a more wide-eyed, rested and less angry look. BOTOX® correction lasts an average of four months; after repeated injections the results may be even longer lasting. Effects of Botox become apparent in the first three to five days after treatment. Botox can be combined with other forms of facial rejuvenation such as dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, chemical peels or microdermabrasion.

• What is the BOTOX Cosmetic procedure process?
The process is very simple. We offer free consultations in which you will meet the Medical Team. The Medical Provider will examine your muscle structure. Next, each area being treated is injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic using a very small, very fine needle. Finally, an ice pack is applied to the area(s) that were treated.
• How do frown lines and wrinkles form on your face?
The lines that appear on your face actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated muscle contractions can result in those frown lines and wrinkles.
• What facial areas will the Medical Provider treat with BOTOX Cosmetic?
The horizontal worry lines in the forhead, the vertical frown lines between eyebrows (glabella, the “crows feet” lines around the eyes, Sagging eye brows, and lines around the mouth and lips.
• What can I expect from a BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure?
Simple 10-minute procedure consists of a few tiny injections. Results typically seen in days and may continue to improve during the first week after treatment (results may vary)
No anesthesia is required. However, topical numbing cream as well as cold pack is offered to you prior to injecting.
You may experience minimal and brief discomfort. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. There may be slight temporary bruising at the injection site. This can be easily covered up with makeup. Every persons facial muscles and expressions vary and your treatment will be tailored to your specific needs. The most common side effects following injection include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.
• Can I go right back to work after Botox treatment? Is there any downtime?
No. Most people return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment. It is recommended however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day.
• Will I see results immediately?
No. Most patients typically see improvement within days and will continue to see gradual effects during the first week. It can take up to two weeks before the muscles treated become relaxed enough to see results.
• How long will results last?
With proper unit dosing, the effects of BOTOX Cosmetic can last up to 6 months. Again, every person is different. With repeat treatments, the effects tend to last longer thus requiring fewer injections.
• Who is NOT a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Women who are pregnant or lactating
People with muscle disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
Persons taking Aminoglycoside antibiotics
Anyone allergic to BOTOX® Cosmetic components or human albumin
• How can I lower my incidence of bruising from the injection(s)?
Any incidence of bruising can be decreased by avoiding the following for 10 days prior to BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment: Aspirin, Motrin or Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Red Wine, Green Tea
• What if bruising does occur?
If bruising occurs, they can be cosmetically concealed by using 'green' concealer make up, followed by a foundation of normal skin color. Any bruises usually resolve within 7-10 days. Another option is the application of Vitamin K or Arnica creams, which may speed resolution of bruises.
• How can I be better prepared for my treatment?
Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointmenttime. This will allow you plenty of time to fill out the necessary forms and if you have elected, to have topical numbing cream applied take effect. If you are not requesting a topical anesthetic, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment. Please arrive with a freshly washed face. No make up, SPF, lotions, creams or toners should be worn as any of these can denature the BOTOX® Cosmetic, making it less effective.
• What are the side effects and risks of Botox treatments?
There is a small risk of allergic reaction to Botox treatments. Depending on where Botox ® is injected, side effects may include headache, respiratory infection, flu-like symptoms, droopy eyelids, and nausea. Temporary bruising on the injection site is also common in some people. Facial pain, redness at the injection site, and muscle weakness are less frequent reactions.
• What about BOTOX® for Migraine Help?
BOTOX® has been found to give relief to Migrane sufferers. The treatment of severe headaches really belongs to neurologists, not plastic surgeons. But BOTOX® for migraine help is gaining acceptance.
• What about BOTOX® for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
Hyperhidrosis is a disorder that defines individuals who sweat more than the body would normally need to maintain optimal temperature. There are two types of hyperhydrosis: generalized hyperhydrosis and focal hyperhydrosis. Botox is used to treat focal hyperhydrosis to one or more of the following areas:
