Frequently Asked Questions

Botox Injections Q&A

What is Botox used for?
Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They’re also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines.
What are the potential side effects of Botox?
Common side effects may include:
Muscle weakness near where the medicine was injected
Trouble swallowing for several months after treatment
Muscle stiffness, neck pain, pain in your arms or legs
Blurred vision, puffy eyelids, dry eyes, drooping eyebrows
Dry mouth
Headache, tiredness
How long does Botox last?
In general, Botox lasts 3-4 months. There will certainly be patients in which in lasts longer, in that 4-6 month range, or shorter, in that 2-month range. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment.
How often should you get Botox?
Typically, the effects of Botox last for up to three to four months. Therefore, the recommended treatment is once every three to four months. Nonetheless, if your facial muscles begin to train themselves to contract less, the period of time for each treatment may be extended longer than three or four months.
How much does Botox cost?
Most of the practices charge flat cost for each injection of the Botox Cosmetic while some practices break the cost according to the “units” used in each treatment. The flat rates usually cost between $300 and $1000 and per-unit rates are typically around $10-15 per unit. A consultation is required for an exact price.
Who should not get Botox?
People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use Botox. Since Botox doesn’t work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor first.
What should you avoid before Botox?
There are no medication contraindications to receiving Botox®, but aspirin and supplements like fish oil, ginseng, garlic, and ginkgo biloba (to name a few) can increase a patient’s chance of bleeding and, therefore, bruising. For the most seamless experience, lay off them before heading in for your appointment.
What to do after a Botox Treatment?
DO stay upright for 2 hours after treatment. … This helps the BOTOX® reach the cells it needs to in order to work. DO avoid getting too hot 48 hours after treatment, for example strenuous exercise, drinking alcohol, hot weather, sun beds, sauna, steam room.
What should I avoid after Botox?
No rubbing or massaging of the injected area for 4 hours after treatment, including facials.
No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
Keep upright for 4 hours — no lying on your front.
Avoid headwear that is tightly fitted across the forehead.
How long after Botox can you wear makeup?
It is fine to put makeup or cream on immediately following a Botox injection, but do so gently without massaging or tugging at your skin as you do so. Do not massage the treated areas for at least 24 hours after your injections to avoid spreading the medication to unintended muscles in your face.
At what age should you start getting Botox?
Most patients typically start using Botox at age 30, some even in their mid-20s. It’s possible to benefit from preventative Botox treatments starting as early as 25, but before that, the odds are low that you could have built up enough lines to worry about.”
Are fillers Better than Botox?
Lip fillers typically last 6 months to 1 year. Botox is most effective for superficial lines and wrinkles, while fillers plump the skin and can smooth out even the deepest forehead furrows and marionette lines. Depending on your goals, a combination of Botox and fillers can make the greatest impact on your appearance.

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A CONSULTATION

"Everyone that I've had a chance to meet at Sparkle have been very helpful. Alexandra was amazing and I really feel that I have the right products and plan to have clearer skin. Looking froward to it. I also didn't feel pressured in buying a bunch of products and have a good understand of what each product will do to help."

Y Leblanc

"Everyone was very polite and knowledgeable. There was no pressure to buy products. I was surprised with my consultation fee waived when I did buy products, there are monthly giveaways and it's always nice to feel like a company gives back. I felt unrushed during my consultation and that none of my questions were silly."

J. Clarke

"The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and the services are amazing. I'll admit I can be particular and sometimes hard to please but at Sparkle I've always been happy with my services because the staff always take the time to make you feel comfortable and informed. I can't say enough about this place!! It's also a beautiful atmosphere."

The Botox Experience

We all want to age as gracefully as possible. The aging process is a fact of life. We all get older but who wants to look tired or angry all the time through the process? Fine lines and wrinkles start popping up on the face and suddenly, we appear constantly frustrated and irritated due to these changes.

The reality is that late nights, binge drinking and falling asleep with makeup on can start to show their effects as early as your mid-to-late 20s. Holiday sunburns and speaking with expressive eyebrows can also intensify fine lines. When the muscles contract we begin to see the development of such little lines.

Or maybe you are curious about Botox because you have heard that it is preventative! Thinking in the long term – how will this help in five to 10 years?

Botox is a drug, known as bacterium clostridium botulinum, and is not just for cosmetic purposes. It can also be used to treat several medical concerns such as eyelid and neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), as well as migraine headaches.

There is only so much that makeup has to offer when it comes to fine lines and wrinkles. We know that the more makeup you put on, the more it collects and creases. Botox is the best option for that “I work up like this” look.

The same can be said for skin care. We at Sparkle will be the first to tell you that you need to have a good skin care regimen however you can think of Botox like peanut butter and great skin care like jelly. Together they complement each other to make a great sandwich!

Botox is the best solution for tackling the signs of aging.

From the injection site, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the facial muscles. The injected muscle cannot contract. That makes wrinkles relax and soften. Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines.

It is important to read all of our FAQs on our Botox page to make sure you are prepared for your treatment (our medical aestheticians will also go over this with you during your consult). For example:

  • No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
  • Avoid getting hot 48 hours after treatment (including drinking alcohol, sun exposure, hot showers).
  • No rubbing or massaging the injected area 4 hours after treatment, including facials and makeup application.

At Sparkle we approach cosmetic injections differently. There are a lot of conditions that can be helped with proper skincare. We always start with the consultation to make sure you are doing everything you can to protect your investment, including your cosmetic injections.

Botox might be a one-time thing that can help you look good for an event or used as a preventative treatment for future fine lines and wrinkles. We help you nail down your top priorities and treatment goals. We then provide you with guidance on what exactly you need to do at home to make sure your Botox lasts.

We also do our best to focus on a more natural look. Every person already naturally beautiful in their own unique way! We want to enhance your natural beauty while helping you with those little annoyances in your appearance that hold you back from being your most confident self.
