Bella Medspa offers Botox® for wrinkles that are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned every one of your worry lines, you don’t have to show them anymore. Now, thanks to FDA approved Botox® dynamic lines can be softened. The procedure known as cosmetic denervation utilizes Botox® injections to improve the appearance of worry lines, frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles.
Our staff at Bella Medspa will help you be part of the Brilliant Distinctions Program allowing you to save money with every procedure.

HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Botox® blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Botox® relaxes the muscles so they do not contract. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected.
Our Medspa and Skincare services consultations are complimentary. This allows us to customize a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and gives you an opportunity to ask questions.
BEFORE & AFTER USING BOTOX®
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT LIKE?
Cosmetic denervation with Botox® is a simple and safe procedure. Utilizing a tiny micro needle, a very small amount of Botox® is injected, very precisely, into several locations on the face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is utilized, the pain associated with the injections is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No addition of anesthetic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office. Some patients experience a slight, temporary bruising at the injection site. This can be covered with makeup.
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect. In some cases, the toxin can migrate and cause the temporary weakness of nearby muscles. In rare cases, there can be drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of facial expression. The risk of any side effect depends on the muscles injected. Your physician or the Nurse Practitioner will discuss this with you in length before your treatment. Because the effects of Botox® are completely reversible, any side effects are temporary, lasting only a few weeks.
WHAT ARE THE LIMITATIONS?
Unfortunately; Botox® injections are a temporary solution for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. The effects of the injections last from four to six months. You will need to have injections about two to three times per year. The clinical studies indicate the duration of treatment benefits is increased over time, such that you should require fewer injections as time goes by. Also, the duration of effect varies from patient to patient and may be less effective for those patients greater than 65 years of age.
