What is a Botox?
Botox (botulinum toxin) injections are injected in small doses to paralyze your facial muscles temporarily, and in a result, it gives a smoother and fresher appearance, on your skin.
Botox (botulinum toxin) is the name of the brand, manufactured in the USA by Allergan Aesthetics. There are several other companies in USA manufacturing Botox Injections, but we at PURE Medica Spa rely on the best of the best, and hence we use Allergan. The word “Botox” has well become synonymous with the treatment.
Some people believe in the myth that Botox injections plump up your skin, well this is not the case at all. Botox once injected into your skin area, in small quantity, makes your facial muscles relax, and prevents them from moving. Botox scientifically works, by blocking the communication between your nerves and muscles, as a result, muscles in the targeted area won’t be able to contract to give you a smoother look. Botox is very effective for smooth fine lines & to prevent the formation of more wrinkles.
Most people get anxious when they hear the word “toxin” associated with the scientific name of Botox (botulinum toxin), but we would like to update you that Botox is totally safe and is approved by FDA. Please read this paper from FDA.
While, others worry that they won’t look natural with Botox, again, it’s a myth, the entire idea of Botox is to make your skin look smooth, younger and natural.

During the Procedure
Most people are amazed by how little a Botox treatment interferes with your day. When you come in at Pure Medical Spa for your Botox treatment, our Botox injector will inject small doses of Botox at pre-decided spots on the face. This entire procedure only takes around 10 to 15 minutes of your time, and then you are done, and good to get on with your day.
The needles which are used for the Botox procedure are very small and may feel like a small and quick prick at the injection site. After the Botox procedure, you may notice small red spots in the injected area, these red spots will fade away within the next few hours. Your injector will then help you through after-care precautions.
After Your Botox Treatment
You should be able to get on with your day like any normal day after the Botox procedure. However, there are a few precautions worth mentioning.
It will help if you avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after your treatment. Avoid rubbing the injected spots and stick with nonabrasive cleansers and lotions for the first 24 hours. Please also avoid covering your injection sites with hats or make-up.
Do not take Ibuprofen or anything else labelled as a blood thinner, as it might lead to bruisings at the injected spots. There are rarely adverse side effects with few people, and most people do not experience any side effects.

Weeks and Months After Your Botox Treatment

Most recipients of Botox come in after every few months for their next session of Botox Treatment. If you get Botox frequently then your facial muscles might get used to being paralyzed. Frequent Botox treatments will make the effects last longer every time you visit Pure Medical Spa for your Botox appointment.
Another best thing you can do to get the maximum benefit out of your Botox treatment sessions is to avoid behaviours that may increase wrinkles on your skin. This could be to make sure to stay away from things like avoiding sun exposure, too much alcohol & smoking, as these three things destroy the collagen in your skin. These three factors will not only prompt wrinkles but also diminish your skin’s overall health.
