Botoxin Lexington, Wellesley Hills, Peabody
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable medicine that softens wrinkles on the face caused by muscle contractions. The most common treatment areas for Botox are across the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows. Botox is the #1 selling treatment of its kind worldwide, and is approved for use in 98 countries.
How Does Botox Work?
When expertly injected, Botox blocks the nerve signaling process that causes muscles to contract and form wrinkles. Botox will not improve the appearance of static wrinkles caused by gravity or collagen and elastin loss that is commonly associated with the aging process.
What Areas Can be Treated With Botox? And What do Treatments Feel Like?
Botox can be used to treat wrinkles across the forehead, corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows. It can also be used to sharpen the jawline, correct a gummy smile, or provide lift and shape to the eyebrows.
Botox is not just limited to aesthetic improvement of the face, and can also be used to reduce excessive sweating of the underarms, hands and face. Please visit our Botox for Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) page for more information.
Botox treatments are both quick and tolerable. Using a very fine needle, your Lexington Botox Injector will target the muscles that are causing the wrinkles you would like to correct. Beyond the slight pinch of the needle, most patients find Botox treatments virtually painless. Botox results kick in around 7 to 10 days post treatment and last around 3 to 4 months. Here at Aspire Med Spa we offer a variety of treatments. Find out which procedure is the best one for you!

BOTOX PATIENT REVIEWS
“I’ve been coming here for about a year and I will say it’s definitely top notch. I’ve gotten Botox and other injectables and it just lasts longer than other places. Their prices are reasonable for the Boston area and they run a good deal of promotions as well. It’s very clean and the staff are always nice and professional.” – Krista Lynn | Google

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does Botox last?
Botox results generally last 3-4 months. However, this may vary depending on each individual patient.
Can Botox age you?
Although Botox is intended to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, too much filler can distort the face, causing an older appearance.
Can Botox cause weight gain?
Botox will not cause you to gain weight.
Can Botox help sinuses?
Botox is a great solution to alleviate sinus-related headaches and allergy symptoms.
Can Botox lift eyebrows?
When Botox is injected around the eyebrows, the underlying muscles are relaxed and pulled upward, lifting the eyebrow and eyelids.
Can I go for a walk after Botox?
You can go for a walk after Botox but make sure to avoid more strenuous exercises such as running or bending over for 24 hours. This is similar to any other type of injectable you may receive.
Can I have wine after Botox?
Avoid drinking wine and alcohol for at least 24 hours after your Botox injections. Alcohol thins the blood and enlarges blood vessels, which can increase bruising and swelling around the injection site.
Can you drink coffee after Botox?
It is recommended that you avoid drinking coffee the day you get Botox if you have high blood pressure. Coffee contains caffeine which may increase blood pressure and the likelihood of significant bruising and swelling around the injection site.
Does Botox affect the brain?
While there is no significant evidence that Botox can cause brain damage, it is important that your procedure is done safely and properly by a certified doctor. If not injected with the proper precautions, Botox can potentially cause nerve damage and affect the nervous system.
Does Botox make you look older after it wears off?
The only effect of Botox wearing off if you have stopped regular injections after a long period of time is that your natural wrinkles will return. Botox will not cause you to look older or make those wrinkles worse.
Does Botox make you shiny?
The shiny or frozen Botox look can occur if too many injections are given in one spot. When the skin is completely smoothed, the light bounces off easier than when lines or wrinkles were present.
