BOTOX® Q & A

GLO MD Wellness Spa

Am I a good candidate for BOTOX?

If you're a looking for worry and frown line relief but don't want to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery, BOTOX may be right for you. BOTOX is designed to target the forehead, eyebrows, lateral eyes (“crow’s feet”), upper lip, and the top of your nose where wrinkles and lines occur.

Through the BOTOX application, the procedure can be used to slightly elevate eyebrows and perk up the corners of your mouth by targeting dynamic wrinkles. Minor cosmetic facial alterations are the preferred target for BOTOX. Consult with your GLO specialist before the procedure to design your ideal treatment plan.

How long does BOTOX last?

On average, the BOTOX cosmetic effects last up to five months. BOTOX treatments prevent the release of neurotransmitters, which allows for the temporary paralysis of affected muscles that would otherwise cause unsightly wrinkling. Once the BOTOX wears off, the muscle movement returns to normal.

There’s no limit to the number of BOTOX treatments a patient can have over time and under the experienced guidance of our providers. GLO MD Wellness Spa will be able to help you sustain the desired results you want for as long as you want.

If you want to make your BOTOX last longer, consider supplementing your BOTOX treatment with zinc. Taking zinc for four days before your treatment can prolong its effect. Zinc readies the body before the introduction of BOTOX by conditioning the receptive enzymes responsible for its surface-level effects.  Further studies are being conducted to determine exactly how this works, but for patients that want a little extra boost from their BOTOX, it's highly recommended.

Are there any risks or side effects?

BOTOX poses no significant health risks, although there's a possibility of temporary bruising or swelling at the injection site. GLO MD Wellness Spa advises that if you're looking for a quick lift or wrinkle eradication on the way to an event unless you have had previous experience with the procedure, it's recommended to schedule your appointment a few days in advance. Dr. Nguyen also advises her clients to rest for a few hours after the injection.

Any facial straining may have adverse effects as the BOTOX settles into its respective area. If you suffer from any dermal or muscular medical conditions that may cause a predisposition to adverse effects, make this clear to your GLO technician, and they'll recommend a personalized course of action as needed. GLO MD Wellness Spa invites you to call or schedule a complimentary consultation online to discuss the BOTOX treatment that's right for you.
