Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
As far as modern cosmetic injectables go, Botox is the most popular and well-known. It contains a neurotoxin that affects communication between your motor nerves and your muscles. It temporarily stops targeted muscles from receiving those communications so they stop flexing, whether you’re trying to flex them or not.
Botox and other injectables that share the same main ingredient, like Dysport®, are available at Wrinkle Fairy alone or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Leslie has an eye for great results and she makes sure you don’t appear frozen or expressionless when she uses Botox to target areas of your face.
You’ll have the option to get a topical anesthetic before your Botox injections. This makes the injections far less uncomfortable for you.
After your injections are complete, Leslie gives you instructions to control any resulting redness. You can go back to work immediately after your visit to Wrinkle Fairy since the treatment doesn’t require any downtime.
What can Botox do?
Botox injections fulfill several different purposes and can boost your confidence by targeting your insecurities. Leslie and her team frequently use Botox to treat:
Fine lines on your face
Some common fine lines, like crow’s feet and frown lines, come from repeated movements and expressions. You can see them even when you’re not consciously flexing a single muscle in your face.
Botox injections stop the muscles from flexing even when you’re not trying to flex them, smoothing the unconcealable wrinkles for months.
Droopy eyebrows are a common consequence of aging that can make you appear tired or sad even when you’re not feeling that way.
A Botox brow lift can elevate the inner or outer sides of your eyebrows, according to the specific muscles pulling your brows downward.
Hyperhidrosis is an elaborate term for excessive sweating. If your shirt tends to get damp under your armpits often, a few Botox injections can disable the sweat glands in the area for some time.
How often can I get Botox injections?
Generally, it takes about 4-6 months before the effects of Botox wear off. By this time, you may notice that your wrinkles reappear or that your sweat glands start functioning again.
You can come back to Wrinkle Fairy regularly to refresh your look after the effects wear off. However, Leslie doesn’t recommend having Botox treatments on the same area more than four times per year.
Botox and Dysport are both available by request at Wrinkle Fairy. To book a consultation, call the office or request an appointment online today.

CoolTone is a new innovation in body contouring that focuses on muscle stimulation and toning, rather than fat grafting, freezing and/or melting. The treatment uses Magnetic Muscle Stimulation (MMS) to strengthen, firm and tone muscles in the thighs, buttocks and abdomen. The magnetic energy finds its way through the fat layer and specifically targets the muscles, leaving the treated area with noticeable muscle toning.
