Are you looking for a quick, non-surgical option to smooth facial wrinkles and reduce fine lines? MacMed Spa Milford offers BOTOX® injections to help you reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® is one of the most widely studied medical aesthetic treatments and has a high patient satisfaction rate. BOTOX® is comprised of small amounts of botulinum toxin and works by blocking chemical signals from reaching the nerves, temporarily reducing muscle activity. Many facial lines and wrinkles, like crow’s feet and frown lines, are the result of repeated muscle contractions. Temporarily reducing muscle activity allows specific facial muscles to relax, which reduces the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles and creates a more youthful appearance. Even though BOTOX® reduces muscle activity, it is possible to maintain a natural appearance and make normal facial expressions without looking like your face has been “frozen.

BOTOX® treatments take very little time, the entire injection process typically takes between 10 and 15 minutes. During the treatment, BOTOX® is injected into the facial muscles using a fine needle. There is no downtime or recovery process associated with BOTOX® treatments, it is often referred to as a “lunch hour” procedure, and most patients are able to immediately return to their normal activities. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve a patient’s desired results. Our experienced staff will work with you to create a customized treatment plan can be developed during your initial consultation.
Results from BOTOX® treatments can become noticeable within 24 to 48 hours of the initial injection. We recommend waiting a full two weeks to observe the full effects as lines can continue to improve for up to a month after treatment. Results typically last up to four months. If you decide to discontinue BOTOX® treatment wrinkles will gradually return to their appearance before your initial treatment. BOTOX® is not able to correct or reduce wrinkles caused by sun damage.
Potential side effects include tenderness, swelling, bruising, and localized pain or discomfort. These side effects typically resolve on their own and should subside within a few day following treatment.
