What is Botox?

Botox is the most name-recognized brand of a specific botulinum neurotoxin. It is one of four FDA-approved botulinum neurotoxins in the United States. The main purpose of Botox is to prevent and smooth wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck, hands, and other areas of the body! Botox can also be used as a treatment for Hyperhidrosis (or excessive sweating) of the hands, forehead, and under the arms.

So, does Botox hurt?

Luckily, Botox is not typically painful! The injectors at Entre Nous Aesthetics are expertly trained in precise injection techniques that diminish discomfort. Patients may experience a slight stinging sensation at the site of the injections, but most report having very little to no discomfort at all!

Not everyone likes needles, though. A fear of needles prevents some patients from enjoying the benefits of Botox. To address this concern, we use needles that are very small and hardly noticeable during treatment. There’s no need to let the fear of a needle prick stop you from the best skin of your life!

Try baby Botox!

If you’re a Botox first timer, you may benefit from baby Botox. This is an injectable Botox treatment similar to regular Botox in many ways, but in smaller doses. Baby Botox achieves subtle, natural, and gorgeous results for first time patients, patients on a budget, and those with only mild signs of aging.
