Botox is a substance made from bacteria that was originally used for medical purposes until the FDA approved it for cosmetic use in 2002.
The unique formulation interrupts communication between your brain and facial muscles and impedes contraction. The result is relaxed facial muscles and diminished lines and wrinkles.
Because it’s minimally invasive, provides reliable results, is affordable, and is administered quickly, Botox is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments on the market. For patients who don’t need a complete facelift, Botox offers similar lifting benefits without the inconvenience of surgery.
The skin around areas where you have repetitive muscle contractions doesn’t bounce back as quickly as it once did, so small creases and folds etch around your mouth, eyes, and forehead.
Botox treats wrinkles that form from years of repetitive facial contractions, often called dynamic wrinkles, including:

Alchemy Wellness Medspa’s knowledgeable and friendly staff can answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Botox comes in powder form and is mixed with saline and placed in small vials. Your Alchemy Wellness Medspa provider applies a numbing solution and makes small strategic injections in the places on your face where you want the wrinkles to relax.
Because the needle your provider uses to administer the Botox is ultra-fine, the sensation you feel is only mildly uncomfortable, like a pinch.
The Botox procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes, and the positive effects are evident within an hour or two. Full results are visible in nearly a week and last up to half a year.
If you’re interested in turning back the hands of time, consider Botox. Call the Alchemy Wellness Medspa office or book your appointment online for a consultation.
