To diminish the effects of aging and to prevent lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from forming on the forehead and upper face, Level Up Med Spa in Andover, MA is proud to offer BOTOX to local patients. This facial rejuvenation procedure provides amazing results and is popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a dramatic enhancement to facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead. The lines may or may not disappear as the face relaxes. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To ease the appearance of these lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed by clinical director Dr. MaryAnn Millar M.D. between the brows and throughout the forehead.

"My husband and I both had amazing experiences with Chelsea. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and professionally. Before my procedure, Chelsea explained everything she was doing clearly and calmly. When I first met Chelsea I asked her about every procedure and what the risks/benefits were of each. She very patiently explained each treatment and it’s purpose. Chelsea was also very honest and kind when she recommended certain services over others. Top notch med spa. I am a nurse and I couldn’t be happier with the quality of service and acumen of the professionals that work there."- N.S. / Google / Sep 30, 2019

"I recently received laser treatment for leg veins and can say with confidence that LevelUp Medspa in Woburn is a GREAT place to receive services. Chelsea is wonderful and extremely knowledgeable, she takes time to explain procedure, makes sure your comfortable during procedure and even follows up with text or phone call a day after procedure. I couldn’t be happier or more comfortable than I am with LevelUp and Chelsea. I will be seeing her again real soon and I can’t wait!"- J.B. / Facebook / Jun 27, 2019
BOTOX is used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their face in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive treatment even if wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is an effective nonsurgical solution if you have obvious forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. It's also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are older with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result, and it is meant to last years.
BOTOX injectable treatments are done as an outpatient procedure right at Level Up Med Spa. If it is your first time to visit us in Andover, MA for BOTOX, you may be surprised to learn we commonly perform the injection within the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Millar M.D.. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting and frowning, which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal day with no required recovery period.
What to Expect
After the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your usual schedule, but strenuous activities, like exercise, should be postponed for at least a day. You will be asked to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may become red, bruised, or swollen for a couple of days, but you will not have any long-lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule a follow-up appointment at Level Up Med Spa to refresh your results.
