With so many amazing anti-aging services available at Fountain of You, some of you may have “forgotten” about Botox! It is still an extremely effective anti-aging tool that we are proud to offer to our clients.
WHAT IS BOTOX?
There are many fillers on the market now which help “fill in” fine lines and wrinkles. They also “plump” to give a more youthful appearance in areas like the cheeks and hands. You may be surprised to find out that Botox is not a filler. Botox is a muscle relaxer!
Botox is made from Clostridium botulinum from which botulinum toxin is derived. Saline is added to the toxin to dilute it, and voila, you have Botox! Botox is FDA-approved and has been approved multiple times over the years for its various uses that have been discovered by the medical world. For example, Botox is used to treat crossed eyes, excessive sweating, urinary incontinence, and migraines, along with its anti-aging purpose of treating fine lines and wrinkles.
DO BOTOX INJECTIONS HURT?
The word “injection” can be off-putting for many people. During the procedure, Botox is injected into the neuromuscular tissue with a thin needle. You may feel minor discomfort. The process usually only takes about 10 minutes unless you are having multiple areas treated in which case it will take a bit longer. You will have no downtime and can immediately resume activities. Due to the minimal pain, no anesthesia is required.
Because of its many uses, Botox can be a saving grace for many people. If you are having issues with axillary hyperhidrosis (medically recognized excessive sweating) that is causing your embarrassment in work and social situations, then Botox may not just be the answer for you; it may feel like a miracle!
For those suffering from chronic migraines, which can be debilitating, then Botox may help. Migraines can cause you to miss work, cause you to miss out on time with family, and can be exhausting as they cause additional symptoms, such as nausea. Don’t let migraines steal days out of your life every month. Perhaps Botox is the solution for you.
And, of course, for those of you desiring to maintain or regain your youthful appearance, Botox is excellent for treating fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Kim Zipper and our Nurse Practitioner, Bonney McGone are diamond-level injectors, performing over 2000 injections per year. No matter your reason for choosing Botox, you are in excellent hands at Fountain of You!
The answer is because there is no better time than the present! Why spend one more day being miserable with excessive sweat? Why spend one more day suffering from a migraine? Why spend one more day looking in the mirror at the crow’s feet that are adding 5 or 10 years to your face? Fountain of You has locations in Melbourne, FL, and Merritt Island, FL.
