What is BOTOX?
Do you want to slow the signs of aging on your face from the impacts of repetitive facial expressions? With BOTOX injectable treatments at Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT, you can delay or ease the development of dynamic wrinkles and expression creases. Board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter will provide BOTOX injections himself after a consultation to make sure BOTOX is the right injectable for you.
BOTOX injections are a clean strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily eases the movements of the muscles used to specific expressions of the upper face area. The lines created from these repetitive muscle contractions are referred to as dynamic because they are due to muscle activity. After a certain age, these dynamic creases stay in place, even if your face is at rest. BOTOX injections can significantly decrease the look of these lines by limiting the muscle movements and providing the skin overlying the muscles the opportunity to relax without interruption. Discover you options with BOTOX injections at our practice by calling or scheduling an appointment online today.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Who Qualifies For BOTOX?
We are accepting patients who are new to BOTOX or are a veteran BOTOX recipient looking for a new provider. Dr. Porter will meet with you in one of our private treatment areas to discuss your treatment plan. BOTOX can soften the visible look of lines on your upper face, like Crow's feet, the lines between your eyebrows, and creases in your forehead skin. BOTOX can also be injected as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging. Think about how often you find yourself making facial expressions. BOTOX can counteract these lines as an effective nonsurgical treatment.
Our Injection Technique
BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Xage Medical Spa. If it is your first time visiting us in Provo, UT for BOTOX, you may receive the treatment within the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Porter. You will be asked to make a number of expressions using the upper face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., which will allow Dr. Porter to visualize where the injections need to be placed. BOTOX is most commonly injected between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.
Your face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help lessen bruising and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to your normal activities almost right away.
After Your BOTOX Appointment
After your injections of BOTOX, you can get back to your typical activities. However, strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for at least a day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face where BOTOX was injected. Your skin may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any severe or lasting side effects. In many cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to Dr. Porter about when to schedule touch-up appointments at Xage Medical Spa to refresh your results.
