While natural aging process is inevitable, at Tru You Medical skin care clinic, we can help you to slow down this process by using neurotoxin botox injections - a simple non-surgical skin care treatment for wrinkles that brightens your face, decreases the mimic lines, and makes you look and feel years younger.
What is Botox?
Botulinum toxin type A is an injectable neurotoxin, commonly known as Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin® and Nuceiva®. Neurotoxin treatments are the most popular single cosmetic procedure and are mainly used to smooth out dynamic facial wrinkles, or those deep lines that form as a result of muscle contractions like frowning, squinting, smiling, and other expressions we tend to make day after day.
Botox treatments and cosmetic injections work by blocking nerve impulses to the facial muscles, causing them to relax. As a result, your facial expressions soften, and the dynamic facial lines and signs of aging are greatly reduced.

Before the Procedure
If possible, avoid anti-inflammatory or blood-thinning medications for 1 week before your appointment. Medications and supplements like ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, vitamin E, aspirin, Omega 3/Fish Oil supplements, St. John’s Wort, Motrin, Ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil, and other NSAIDS have can increase the risk of swelling and bruising after injections.
Do not consume coffee and alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the appointment to minimize the risk of bruising.
Have a good meal and enough water prior to your treatment to minimize the probability of lightheadedness during your treatment.
Do not use Retin-A for 2 days before and 2 days after your appointment.
If you are planning to attend special events like a wedding or a vacation, schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to that day. Results from the botox injections will take between 4 and 7 days to appear. Also, swelling and bruising may be apparent during that time.
If you have a blemish, a cold sore, or a rush in the facial area to be treated, please reschedule your appointment.
If you have a history of cold sores, please let us know.
After the Procedure
Do not manipulate the treated area for 3 hours following treatment.
Do not receive any aesthetic treatments in the injection area for at least 2 weeks.
Do not lie down for 4 hours after your treatment and do not perform activities involving intensive exercise, heavy lifting, or straining for 6 hours after treatment. This will prevent the neurotoxin from travelling to undesired areas.
How Long Does it Take for Botox to Work?
It can take approximately 4 to 7 days for results to be seen.
How Long Does Botox Last?
For most of the patients, the effect will last from 4-6 months depending on the area being treated. Periodic touch-up treatments are recommended for optimal results.
