What is BOTOX?
To diminish the effects of aging and avoid fine lines, wrinkles, and lax skin on the forehead and upper face, Body+Beauty Lab is pleased to offer BOTOX to our many clients in Philadelphia, PA. The best-selling product of its kind, this facial rejuvenation treatment produces stunning results and is popular among both women and men. BOTOX can make a dramatic improvement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which result from expressions and movement created by the contracting muscles of the forehead. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic creases can still remain. This wrinkle relaxer is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the mobility of the underlying tissue and muscle. To reduce the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly administered by our experienced medical injectors between the brows, around the eyes, and throughout the forehead.
"I have gone to Sarah Sidiqi for a couple of years now for Botox. I started with her at her previous spa location and loved her (and accidentally booked someone different at the same spa and was disappointed in my results -which only made me confirm my love for how she does her injections!) Now I've followed her to Body + Beauty Lab! She's always careful to analyze my face each time and offer new suggestions for placements and openly talk about other procedures I've experienced. Pain is minimal and her personality is so kind, it helps you feel at ease. I'll be going to Sarah as long as I'm still in Philadelphia! She's great and careful with what she does and informative about her work."- K.C. / Yelp / Dec 02, 2018
"Sarah Sadiqi always does a great job with my sisters and I's injectables, she's pleasant, takes her time and explains every step of the process. The front desk staff is always friendly and very helpful, they even gave me some tips on how to avoid swelling and bruising following the injections. All around a great experience. Highly recommend."- L.K. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2019
"Jen is an ANGEL. I went to her for botox after going to a different spa for many years and Jen made me feel comfortable and confident about the procedure. I mentioned I wanted my lips done one day so we did them during the appointment and I CANT WAIT TO GET THEM DONE AGAIN. They look amazing and subtle -- exactly what I asked for. She listened to what I wanted and they came out better than I imagined. I didn't bruise at all. Thank you to everyone who works there I can't wait to come back"- A.C. / Yelp / Jun 19, 2018
"I had my first Botox injections with Sarah Sidiqi at her previous office/medspa and followed her to Body & Beauty Lab for my 2nd treatment. I have been very happy with my results and will return for my upkeep. I am able to use Aspire Galderma Rewards points here to save on the cost and they frequently advertise deals for injections and other services. Good value and great results!"- D.D. / Yelp / Nov 30, 2018
"Jen is the only person I would go to. ! Her knowledge with Botox is by far the best I have ever experienced. I have a very small forehead and after going to doctors and other spa's, they never got it right. My eye lids were dropped every time. A friend told me about Jen. I immediately trusted her by her full examination of my face muscles. For the first time, my Botox treatment was right on point! I was so thrilled and would never let anyone else touch my face. Jen made me feel so comfortable and there was no overselling, which most spa's push. Her method is amazing!"- S.M. / Google / Aug 19, 2018
Is BOTOX Right for Me?
BOTOX injections are performed for clients seeking to nonsurgically diminish or prevent the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face. BOTOX is often considered an effective preventive anti-aging treatment even if you do not yet have static wrinkles. This noninvasive solution is ideal for those who have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It can also be a solution for crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Additionally, if you possess moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for a ThreadLift, which also delivers impactful results.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure right here in our office. If it's your first time to visit us to receive BOTOX, we may perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make various expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us mark the injection sites. Your face will be prepared, and BOTOX will be injected under your skin using a fine needle. This will be followed with the application of a cool compress in order to decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. In some circumstances, we may also administer a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable. However, this is typically not necessary. BOTOX treatments only take about 10 – 15 minutes to perform, after which you may return to your daily schedule almost right away.
What Results Can I Expect from BOTOX?
Following the BOTOX injection, you will be allowed to return to your typical routine, although strenuous activities, such as exercise, should be postponed for a minimum of 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which could potentially spread the BOTOX to undesired areas. The injected sections of your face can become bruised, red, or swollen for a couple of days, but you should not have any severe or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become fully visible. Your results will generally last 3 – 4 months. We typically recommend scheduling regular maintenance appointments to touch-up your results.
How much does BOTOX cost?
The total cost for BOTOX injections will be based on the amount of product that is needed to reach your goals. During your consultation, your skilled medical injector will form your customized treatment plan and then discuss cost estimates. If you'd like to save money, ask for more information about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program, which allows patients to earn points for BOTOX and other products from Allergan, including Juvéderm. In addition to the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program, you can also ask about our office's own VIP membership program, which will allow you to receive special discounts and offers on certain treatments.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers (including BOTOX) and injectable dermal fillers (including Restylane and Juvéderm) are both products that improve the appearance of wrinkles and correct fine lines. BOTOX works by relaxing overused muscles in your face that create dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines, crow's feet, smile lines, and forehead wrinkles. Dermal fillers increase volume below the skin to correct depressions and improve fine lines throughout your face. Based on your goals, our skilled team may suggest BOTOX, fillers, or a liquid facelift, which combines both.
What's the difference between BOTOX and Dysport®?
BOTOX and Dysport are different brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers that contain botulinum toxin. Each of these products relaxes the facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles, but both are used to treat specific needs. Some of the small differences between them include the amount in each dose, how far the treatment spreads, and how long the results last. Your medical injector will select the best product to achieve your goals.
Is BOTOX safe?
As long as it is applied correctly, BOTOX should not cause serious complications. However, it's important to choose someone with experience and training with injecting BOTOX, like our skilled team, because overdoing BOTOX can lead to bad results. Currently one of the most requested cosmetic treatments of all time, BOTOX for cosmetic use is considered incredibly safe and has earned approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
If you find yourself restraining from fully expressing yourself due to the possibility of creating wrinkles, then it may be time to consider receiving high-quality BOTOX wrinkle relaxer treatments at Body+Beauty Lab. We invite women and men concerned about dynamic lines and folds to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced medical injectors. At our Philadelphia, PA office, a member of our team will work with you to develop your customized BOTOX treatment program.
