The Glow Bar offers uses BOTOX®, a neuromuscular blocking agent, to prevent or reverse the appearance of wrinkles.
What is Botox®?
BOTOX® is a medical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. It is a neuromuscular blocking agent that causes paralysis of the injected muscle. Once our bodies reach the age of 25, we lose a percentage of cell turn over. Our faces change our usual mold and this can result in static, more permanent, wrinkles. Static wrinkles can be seen even when we are not making an expression. BOTOX® will help to soften your appearance making your skin look naturally younger.
Areas of Treatment
The entire process takes about 10-15 min. We will talk about your areas of concern and assess the face to any asymmetry. We will then clean the area and inject very low doses of BOTOX® into specific areas of the face. Very little redness/ swelling will occur after. Bruising can also happen and is recommended not to take Advil or Ibuprofen 48 hours before treatment.
BOTOX® can be done anytime! There are no major restrictions prior to your appointment, just come with a fresh face (or not!) and stop taking any NSAIDS 48 hours before your appointment.
You can resume normal activity after injections immediately. The few activities to avoid are exercising and facials until the following day. You will see results in about 3-5 days.
