BOTOX – Ageless Skin Treatment
Details Make all the Difference! You Look Fantastic!
Wrinkles? Tired look? Make your face smooth again with modern tox like Jeuveau and Botox. Say goodbye to face wrinkles and get the skin of your dreams without surgery.
What You Should Know Before Your First Botox Appointment
- Botox is a neuromodulator. It interrupts the message sent by nerves to muscles, causing them to relax. Jeuveau is a modern anti-wrinkle treatment. It has been shown to be an effective alternative to Botox, which is no longer effective in some people.
- The more units you have, the less movement your facial muscles can make. This means your skin may stay wrinkle-free longer. Botox and Jeuveau can prevent early wrinkles and treat existing ones. Prior to your injection, we always do a full-face consultation. During this consultation we will ask you to smile, frown and raise your eyebrows so that we can ensure that the final result is natural-looking.
- Botox starts to work in 3 to 5 days, with outstanding results at two weeks and lasts for 3 to 4 months. Botox starts to work slowly and stops working slowly as well. Jeuveau starts to work much faster and can last in some people up to 5 months.
- The most common side effect of the treatment is bruising. We avoid going near large blood vessels, but everyone’s anatomy is different, and it is possible to hit a small one. If this happens, it will be small and should go away within one week.
- At @valeriyalife.spa, Botox ranges between $9/unit and $12/unit+ the Jeuveau ranges between $8/unit and $11/unit. Your total price depends on how many areas you want treated, your current skin condition, and what your goals are for treatment. We also accept Alle points for Botox. For Jeuveau, we always offer $40 off.
Botox Aftercare Instructions
Make the most of your treatment with these aftercare instructions.
Sit Up: Botox injections are administered into the superficial muscle of one or more areas. For the drug to work as efficiently as possible, it must be given time to fully absorb. Lying down too soon could create a risk of Botox migrating away from its target area. Lying down also increases the risk of bruising. Play it safe and stay upright for at least 4 hours after your treatment.
Wait 24 Hours to Exercise: If you exercise every day as a part of your general wellness routine, we suggest doing so before your Botox appointment and then waiting a full 24 hours for your next workout session. Depending on the type of exercise you tend to do, your provider may suggest holding off for a few days. Walking tends to be fine, so long as you don’t increase your heart rate too much. Doing so increases the risk of bruising. While exercising the body is not recommended, mild facial exercise is. After Botox injections, it can be advantageous to smile, frown, and raise your eyebrows to help the product integrate into the muscle.
Pass on the Cocktails: Around the time of your Botox session, it is advisable to switch to some of the tasty mocktail recipes found online. Alcoholic beverages increase the risk of bruising and should be avoided 24 hours before and 24 hours after injectable treatments.
Give the Face a Break: Getting Botox is often a good lesson in realizing just how much we touch our face. To prevent spreading the drug, it is necessary to avoid touching the face for about 3 days. You can wash your face but do so gently, without pressing. Avoid exfoliating scrubs, facial massages, and facials. Also avoid any other activities that will put pressure on your face such as bending over and tight-fitting hats or headbands.

Frequently asked questions about botox
How does BOTOX® cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will notice your frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines temporarily look better.
Is there a substitute for BOTOX® cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a biologic product that cannot be interchanged – or substituted – for another product. In fact, the FDA has stated BOTOX® Cosmetic is “non-interchangeable,” which means that its safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by any other product. The potency – or strength – of BOTOX® Cosmetic is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to our unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for our product. People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving. Be sure to ask which product you are being prescribed and why.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.

Do i need to be over 40 to start using BOTOX® cosmetic?
It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.
How much time does BOTOX® cosmetic treatment take?, Will it hurt?
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. If the HCP deems you to be an appropriate candidate, the injection may take place on that same day. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment. Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
Will i see results quickly? , How long does BOTOX® cosmetic last?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals. Start talking about your goals with a specialist today and find out what you could expect.
