How is a Botox facial different from regular Botox injections?

While typically Botox is injected deep into the muscle, in a Botox facial, the skin is prioritized. A Botox facial uses microneedling to insert a blend of Botox and serums into the skin. Traditionally, Botox has been used to combat signs of aging such as wrinkling or fine lines, because the active ingredient stops muscles in the face from contracting. However, in a Botox facial, the formula is used to control pores in the face and manage oil production because the lack of muscle contractions means that the skin makes less sebum, an oily substance that can cause acne by clogging pores. A Botox facial minimizes pores leaving your skin looking clear and smooth.

What ingredients may be used along with Botox in a Botox Facial?

When you receive a Botox facial, your specialist may use the Botox in conjunction with other products. Depending on the products in the blend, they can offer a variety of other benefits to maximize the results of your facial. A common extra ingredient, hyaluronic acid, hydrates the skin and adds volume. For those with bothersome dark spots, vitamin C may be added to the blend to brighten and even the tone of the skin. Platelet-rich plasma is an additional ingredient that boosts the skin’s healing growth and increases the production of collagen.

What can you expect after receiving a Botox facial?

After receiving a Botox facial, your skin may feel dry and possibly exhibit a pinkish hue. Your skin will be sensitive after the procedure. You will be instructed an aftercare plan from your specialist, who may advise a topical product to apply to the skin regularly. You will be advised to stay out of the sun and avoid situations that could damage or aggravate your skin. Within a few days, you will begin to see the beautiful and rejuvenating results of clear, smooth, skin.

Are you a good candidate for a Botox facial?

  • If you have been treated with Accutane in the past six months.
  • If you have any infections or open wounds in the area you plan to treat.
  • If your skin is prone to forming keloids.
  • If you have received radiation in the past twelve months.
  • If you are pregnant or currently nursing.

Of course, the best way to know if you are a candidate for a Botox facial is to book a consultation with Dr. Paul Afrooz or our nurse practitioner, Kayla Ferraro.
