Need Botox or Dysport in Kansas City? Say hello to the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure. BOTOX® is an amazing solution in a syringe that quickly and safely smooths the lines and wrinkles associated with expression. FDA approved in 2002, it continues to be the fastest growing cosmetic procedure in the U.S. BOTOX® injections improve and soften the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles with no downtime. You’ll still maintain your ability to frown, smile, and look surprised, but without the creases and wrinkles!
How Does A BOTOX® Treatment Work?
BOTOX® is an injectable purified protein that stops the contraction of muscles around the injection site. A minute quantity in key muscles virtually erases wrinkles located on the face, like expression lines around the eyes, between the brows and on the forehead. The BOTOX® protein stops nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. When the muscles responsible for wrinkle formation can’t contract, the wrinkle quickly fades. BOTOX® won’t improve static wrinkles, only those related to expression.
A very small needle is used in the treatment and the whole procedure takes about 15 minutes, after which you can return to most normal activities. Other than a chance of light bruising or slight swelling, there is no downtime. BOTOX® has been used cosmetically for over a decade and has one of the best safety profiles in medicine, with very few side effects.
Is Underarm Sweating Limiting Your Wardrobe Choices?
Underarm sweating, and the effects it can have on lifestyle choices and general self esteem can be very difficult to deal with.
BOTOX® is a highly effective, FDA-approved treatment for underarm sweating not adequately managed by topical agents. BOTOX® injections help control underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the sweating stops. In a clinical study, the effect of BOTOX® for underarm sweating lasted an average of 6 months.
How Long Will The Treatment Last?
Results from your BOTOX® treatment will become apparent within 3 to 10 days. Then, over the next 3 to 4 months the BOTOX® will gradually lose its potency, and you’ll require more to keep the desired effect. Most BOTOX® patients choose to maintain the treatment, having injections 3 or 4 times a year.
There is indication that the duration of treatment benefits increases over time, so you may require less frequent injections in the future. BOTOX® is also the perfect compliment to many other cosmetic procedures. It’s very target specific and helps to diminish stubborn expression lines that may not respond to other forms of treatment.

Which Facial Areas Respond Best to Treatment?
Fillers work exceptionally well on wrinkles all around the mouth, worry lines in the forehead, they can enhance cheekbones and jaw-lines, and can be used near the eyes to bring out “sunken eyes”. Many people have fillers placed in the back of their hands to minimize the look of bones and veins. And if you’ve ever desired fuller lips, a filler is the perfect choice!
Fillers can also be used in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for those seeking the ultimate in facial rejuvenation.?
How Are Treatments Performed?
The injections are an in-office procedure taking less than 30 minutes of your time. During the treatment a tiny needle is used to inject the filler beneath the wrinkle or depression, into your own collagen base. With a small amount of lidocaine patients generally experience minimal discomfort.
What Can I Expect Following the Treatment?
Normal activities can be resumed immediately following the treatment. Mild swelling at the treatment site may last for a few hours and you might experience some slight bruising, which can generally be covered with make-up if it occurs.
Results can only be evaluated after any potential swelling has gone down. Your practitioner knows that it is always better to err on the side of caution using a little less filler initially. You can always opt to increase the amount later.
The results from a cosmetic filler are temporary and can easily be repeated. The newer generations of fillers used at Bare Med Spa® last anywhere from 6 months to a year or more.

Cosmetic Fillers FAQs
What are Cosmetic fillers made of?
There are many injectable cosmetic fillers on the market today. At Bare Med Spa®, we use a variety of products depending on what is most appropriate for your particular needs. In most cases, the various hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm products generate the best results.
Is it safe?
The hyaluronic acid in cosmetic fillers is biodegradable, which means that, when the injected gel breaks down, it turns into water and carbon dioxide and disappears unnoticed from your body.
What will happen during treatment?
Your Bare Injector will determine the areas and extent of treatment by discussing your objectives and then use the most appropriate product to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result. Areas that can be treated include wrinkle correction and lip enhancements, correcting thin superficial lines, around the mouth; and shaping facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, correcting deep folds, and for volume augmentation of the lips. You will receive several tiny injections in the areas to be treated.
How long does treatment take?
The treatment can usually be done in about 10 – 15 minutes and no recovery time is needed. The only visible signs that you’ve had anything done are some potential redness or minor bruising around the injection points. However, this is very minor and many people have a cosmetic filler treatment in their lunchtime and return to work in the afternoon.
How quickly will I see results?
The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.
How long will it last?
Cosmetic fillers are long lasting but not permanent. You always have a choice to continue or change the combination of treatments – and the procedure can be repeated as often as you like. Most clients choose to have a follow-up treatment 6 – 18 months after an initial treatment of wrinkles.
Does it hurt a lot?
For most people, discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Most clients compare the sensation to a pin prick. The Restylane and Juvederm we use, contains lidocaine, which can minimize any discomfort. We may also numb the area with a cold pack rior to injecting.
Is there any reason I shouldn’t have treatment?
During your consultation, a medical history will be taken to assess any risks that would preclude treatment.
What are the side effects?
Immediately after treatment, there may be slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The inconvenience is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. This means that the results directly after the treatment should not be seen as the final result.
Will I look unnatural after treatment?
At Bare Med Spa®, we strive for a natural looking result via subtle improvements. Friends may comment that you look more relaxed, but treatment will not radically alter your appearance; it will simply reduce lines and wrinkles.
Do I have to be a certain age to have Cosmetic filler treatment?
Cosmetic filler treatments are generally thought to be safe to use in individuals aged between 18 and 70. Wrinkle and line treatment will usually be of benefit to those 25 years or older.
