GLOW Medical Aesthetics & Weight Loss Mediclinic

BOTOX COSMETIC

Look Fabulous, Not Frozen!
BOTOX

Botox is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States! Actually, it is a prescriptive medication that works by relaxing muscles. Lines and wrinkles smooth, elasticity and pliability of the skin increases, and the skin firms and tightens!

NOT ALL BOTOX IS EQUAL!
BEWARE OF “BARGAIN” BOTOX!

Botox treatments and techniques vary between practices. GLOW uses only FDA-approved Botox Cosmetic exclusively manufactured by Allergan. Although Federal Law prohibits non-FDA-approved drug importation, be aware that counterfeit “Botox” is prevalent. Also, please note that providing alcohol and/or performing medical procedures outside of a medical facility is illegal because doing so puts your health and well-being at risk.

For your safety, Botox is packaged in a powder form, sealed in a sterile glass vial. The practitioner must set up a sterile field and add Bacteriostatic Sterile Saline into the vial. This converts the powder to liquid form. During this reconstitution process, some facilities follow the recommended protocol by Allergan, and other facilities add more saline (or use non-sterile water). By “diluting it down” these facilities are injecting less effective, unstable Botox, causing unpredictable results. Also, Botox becomes unstable 4 hours after reconstitution: Botox must always be used within this 4 hour time frame.

As mandated by the State of Tennessee, your injector must be a currently Licensed and Board Certified Nurse Practitioner or M.D. Registered nurses or aestheticians are NOT individually licensed to practice or inject medical aesthetics (such as Botox, Juvederm, etc). Certification courses are not substantiated. Unfortunately, this is not only common, but also misleading.

Because Botox is injected into muscles, results depend on what muscles and where within the muscle Botox is injected, and also depend on the concentration of the Botox. At GLOW, all Botox treatments are performed by our Board Certified Nurse Practitioners. You will always receive maximum strength, real BOTOX. Results are seen within 7-10 days. Botox may last up to five months. Individual results may vary. Remember, Botox® Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment to improve the appearance of both moderate to severe lines in the forehead, between the brows, and crow’s feet.
