What is Botox?
Derived from the botulinum toxin, Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic fillers on the market. It’s commonly used to treat crow’s feet, frown lines, neck wrinkles, forehead creases, and smile lines. Approved by the FDA, Botox is safe when administered by experienced providers like the medical staff at CaMar Med Spa.
In addition to minimizing or eliminating existing wrinkles, Botox prevents new lines and creases from forming in the future.
Who is a good candidate for Botox?
If you are unhappy with lines and wrinkles around your mouth, eyes, on your forehead, or on your neck, you can benefit from Botox treatments. The medical staff meets with you to discuss your goals and the severity of your wrinkles before he administers the treatment.
What can I expect during a Botox treatment?
The medical staff meets with you to understand your goals and evaluate the depth and placement of your wrinkles. He identifies the specific muscles in charge of the movements that make the wrinkles and uses an ultra-fine needle to make a series of injections directly into those muscles.
The botulinum toxin immobilizes the muscle and makes the wrinkles fade away. You can resume your normal routine right after your Botox appointment. There’s absolutely no downtime.
For what else is Botox used?
In addition to its uses in skin care, the therapeutic effect of Botox is surprisingly useful for a number of medical conditions, such as:
- Teeth grinding
- Multiple sclerosis
- Bell’s palsy
- Essential tremors
- Bladder spasms or incontinence
- Excessive sweating
- Crossed eyes

How long does Botox last?
The effects of Botox last between four and six months. When the wrinkles begin to slowly return, make another appointment to return to the clinic. The team at CaMar Med Spa will help you determine if you should schedule more frequent appointments to maintain your wrinkle-free results.
