Benefits of Botox

Anti-Aging

By relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles, the appearance of them are diminished, and the muscles can’t make them worse.

Safe Treatment

In 2002, the FDA approved Botox for aesthetic treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in adults—after decades of use for medical treatments.

Non-Surgical

With Botox, there’s no surgery, and no downtime. Plus the treatment isn’t permanent, so that you can reverse the effects or change where you want them.

What to Expect

Step 1: Consultation

It all starts with a personal, one-on-one consultation. Your Elinea Med Spa provider will talk with you about your concerns and goals, and examine your treatment area. If Botox is the best choice for treatment, we can schedule your appointment—though frequently injections are done the same day.

Step 2: Your Botox Injections

During the 20 to 30 minute treatment, your Elinea Med Spa injector expertly injects the Botox in sites around your treatment area. Within a few days, you will see fine lines and wrinkles lessen in the treatment areas. By then end of 2 weeks you’ll have achieved terrific, natural-looking results!

Next Steps

There is no downtime after Botox treatment. You can go about your normal daily activities. There may be slight swelling at injection sites, but it will quickly subside. You’ll need to avoid avoid all strenuous exercise and try not to touch the treatment area for 24 to 48 hours as the Botox settles.

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I’ve been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I’ve been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. …

"I am somewhat of a beauty junkie, truth be told."

I've been getting facials for years and when a friend recommended Elinea, which I thought was strictly a MedSpa, I thought why not? I've been to a number of salons in the city and like to keep my options open. Monica did a hydrofacial for me which was truly one of the best immediate gratifications facially I can remember. The next day, I looked seriously five years younger. My skin was taut, supple and super hydrated...many fine lines were minimized. I'm definitely going to get this treatment again. Monica knows her stuff.

"I am hooked. My skin was glowing, so smooth and continues to glow post-treatment."

After many months without a skin care treatment, I went in yesterday for my first dermaplane and hydrafacial experience yesterday based on a friends recommendation. Monica was my super esthetician and she is amazing. She is very knowledgeable about products and treatments. I had a bunch of skincare questions and Monica was really informative. I know there are other advanced procedures at Elinea such as Botox, injectables, etc but for me and for now, I am happy taking small steps in my journey to great skin. Elinea is a warm and beautiful new space in the Castro. I am booking my next skincare treatment now!

Pre-Treatment Instructions for Botox in San Francisco

Medications

Avoid blood-thinning medications before your injections. If you are taking any medications under the direction of your doctor, be sure to speak with them before discontinuing them.

Zinc Supplements

Consider a zinc supplement in the weeks leading up to your Botox injections. Studies have shown that higher levels of zinc in the body are related to higher efficacy of Botox and other injectables.

Avoid Alcohol

Avoid alcohol for 2 days prior to injections, as this too can thin the blood and cause bruising during treatment.

Post-Treatment Instructions for Botox in San Francisco

No Touching/Massaging

No touching or massaging the injection site to avoid moving the material to a spot it wasn’t intended to be.

Stay Upright

Keep your head upright for at least 4 hours to help reduce swelling and speed up the recovery process.

Sunlight/Sunscreen

Avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen when outside, as UV rays can disperse the injectable in your skin and shorten Botox’s effect.

Most of our patients only feel a slight “pinch” during injections, and find it to be well within their tolerable range.

However, if your sensitivities are heightened, you can ask for topical anesthetic cream to applied as an optional pre-treatment.  This will extend the amount of time the session takes, as the anesthetic will need time to numb the treatment area.

The cost for your Botox treatment depends on the size and number of your treatment areas, and the number of Botox vials needed to complete the treatment.

On average, our Botox treatments run from $250 to $800.

There’s zero downtime after Botox! You can get back to your regular daily routine after your session.

Due to the need for your Botox injections to settle in your treatment areas, there are a few activities you should avoid for a short time directly after Botox:

Exercise (24 hours)

Lie down (2 hours)

Reapply makeup (until the next day)

Otherwise, feel free to do what you do. You should begin to see positive results around 7 days after your injections, with full improvements visible after 14 days.
