November is just around the corner and that means new specials! November 17th is BOTOX Cosmetic day! This means we will be highlighting BOTOX for the entire month. The first 10 to book a little BOTOX “pick-me-up” with me during the week of November 15 will receive 10 free units. Additionally, if you come in for any treatment–this includes BOTOX, filler, lasers, peels, surgeries, etc–with me or Dr. Bunkis, you can enter our raffle to receive 50 free units. The winner will be contacted during the first week of December.

The rules for the raffle are as follows:

  • Non-transferrable
  • Must be claimed within 6 months of being announced
  • All 50 units must be used in one appointment
  • Treatments are with me only

What is BOTOX? BOTOX is a neurotoxin produced by Clostridium botulinum. It temporarily relaxes the muscle underneath the skin to prevent wrinkles and minimize the progression of lines. Our brains release signals, called neurotransmitters, from nerve to nerve until it reaches the muscle. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is released from the neurons and then attaches to the muscle causing a muscle contraction. BOTOX works by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, therefore less movement and fewer lines.

Each treatment is tailored specifically to you and your anatomy. This includes injection sites and amount of units based on what is requested and desired. It takes approximately 10 days for BOTOX to begin taking its effect and it can last around 3 months. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1-2 days. I also advise to avoid laying down, touching the injection sites, and exercising for the first 24 hours. I recommend booking your next appointment after your treatment to prevent the results from fading. Additionally, follow-up appointments are also suggested several weeks after the initial treatment to check the progress and add more BOTOX if needed.

If you’re unsure about BOTOX or have further questions, come in for a consultation to better understand what this mighty product can do for you!
