What Are Botox/Injectables and How Do They Work?

Botox/Injectables refer to a range of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that are designed to address facial concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. Botox is a neuromodulator made from botulinum toxin type A, which temporarily weakens the facial muscles responsible for contracting and causing wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, contain hyaluronic acid or other biocompatible substances that add volume to the treated area, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

These treatments are administered via injections by experienced professionals, such as those at Aesthetiq MedSpa, who customize each treatment plan according to the client's unique needs and aesthetic goals.

What Is CoolSculpting and How Does It Work?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses controlled cooling technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells without surgery or downtime. This innovative treatment works by applying targeted cold temperatures to specific areas of the body, which damages the fat cells and triggers a natural process known as apoptosis, or controlled cell death.

Over time, the body naturally processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells, resulting in a more sculpted, toned appearance. CoolSculpting is a suitable option for individuals looking to address pockets of resistant fat that remain unresponsive to diet and exercise efforts.

What Can I Expect During and After Botox/Injectables and CoolSculpting Treatments?

During Botox/Injectables treatments, your provider will apply a topical numbing agent or local anesthesia to minimize discomfort as they carefully inject the product into targeted facial areas. The procedure typically takes between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the treatment areas and the client's goals.

Following Botox/Injectables treatments, you can expect some minor side effects such as redness, swelling, or slight bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms typically subside within a few hours to a couple of days. It is essential to follow your post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding rubbing the treated area or engaging in strenuous activities for a short period after the procedure.

CoolSculpting treatments involve placing a specialized applicator on the targeted areas of your body to deliver controlled cooling. The treatment is generally comfortable and well-tolerated, with most clients experiencing minimal discomfort during the procedure, which typically lasts about an hour per treated area.

After CoolSculpting treatments, you may experience sensations such as temporary numbness, tingling, or mild soreness in the treated area. These side effects usually resolve on their own within a few days. As CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment, there is no need for any downtime or significant recovery period.

How Long Do the Results of Botox/Injectables and CoolSculpting Last?

The longevity of Botox/Injectables and CoolSculpting results varies based on factors such as the specific treatment, individual factors, and treatment maintenance.

Botox treatments generally last between three and six months, after which clients may need follow-up injections to maintain their results. Dermal fillers can have varying durations of effect, with some lasting six months to two years or more, depending on the specific filler, treatment area, and client's individual response.

CoolSculpting results typically become apparent within one to three months, with continued improvement over several more months as the body eliminates the treated fat cells. Results from CoolSculpting can be long-lasting if clients maintain a healthy, stable weight and engage in regular physical activity and a balanced diet.
