The most popular cosmetic procedure in the world is wrinkle reducing injections with neurotoxins or the friendlier term, neuromodulators. The injections work by reducing the activity of the muscles they are injected to, thereby resulting in less movement and less dynamic wrinkles.
Duration of neuromodulators is highly variable among individuals and location. Typical durations quoted are 3-4 months. It takes 2-5 days for the initial onset of the neuromodulator to appear, and it peak effects in 2-3 weeks. Starting about 2 months after injection, the muscles gradually start to gain more activity. In other words, the relaxing effect of neuromodulators isn’t equal throughout the treatment, with the last 4 weeks showing increasing muscle activity.
Neurotoxins are perfect for pairing with fillers or a biorevitalizer like PRX Derm Perfexion for a truly smooth and ageless appearance.
After your consultation, based on the identified concern, an FDA recommended unit amounts of botulinum toxin are injected into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the specific area being treated and type of botulinum toxin used. It is never recommended to treat just one area, like the 11’s, as that can exacerbate other muscles and make them look “unbalanced”.
Injections usually take 10 to 15 minutes and are performed in out treatment rooms at Reclaim MedSpa in Libertyville. Most patients find treatment injections relatively pain-free.
The procedure can be somewhat painful, although topical anesthetics are applied to the skin beforehand to minimize the pain of the needle stick. There is no pain once the procedure has ended.
The efficacy is the same across all three brands, with results lasting between four to six months.
We will apply a topical anesthetic cream before beginning, and each treatment lasts between fifteen and twenty minutes.
After your appointment you may have some redness, bruising or swelling in the treated areas. These effects will resolve themselves within a couple of days and will not affect your ability to go about your daily activities.
The treated areas should be smoother, and you can expect less muscular motion in the treated area. This will become more noticeable a week to ten days after the treatment.
Here are some of the most recent reviews and testimonials of our salon written by our regular clients, guests, and visitors.
I've been battling my face imperfections for years-specifically acne! It also doesn't help that I'm very impatient and I need to see results right away-but I think that stems from the fact that many products on the market never really worked for me or maybe I just didn't find the right kind of team to trust! So I decided to re-visit Reclaim MedSpa and honestly it was the best decision ever!
I’ve been seeing Dr. Shapiro for Botox for over 15 years. Before I found him, I’ve been to a variety of spas and doctors and was never quite satisfied with the results. Dr Shapiro took the time to listen to my areas of concern and has been consistently providing me with excellent results. My face looks natural, I can still make all the silly expressions I want, yet the wrinkles and fine lines are gone. As a plastic surgeon and an ENT, Dr Shapiro really is the best!
I have been going to Elena for 20 years and it is the best decision I’ve ever made. Elena is absolutely the best and so is the entire staff. She cares for me and is passionate about being current with the latest available products and treatments. I love my visits to Reclaim MedSpa where I feel welcomed by all the outstanding staff. From facials, microdermabrasion, Dermapen Skin Resurfacing, new Italian PRX-T3 skin biorevitalizer treatment to fillers/Botox and more, you will be ecstatic that you chose Reclaim MedSpa!
This place was recommended to me by a friend and I am usually very hesitant with these kind of things, but I felt very welcome and comfortable as a guy in a spa. Khrystyna gave me a skin analysis using a camera which was very interesting to me to be able to know what is going on with my skin. Definitely will be back for another men’s facial and recommend the spa!
Best and Most professional Doctor and team. Did my lip injection and Botox with him and couldn’t be more happier! Will be your permanent client :)
Great advise and professional service. The only place I come to trust.
Wow Wow Wow! That's all i can say about this beautiful place! The staff is so informative, friendly, and do an excellent job every time! They are always able to provide an answer to any problem, and will guide you to a perfect treatment that will be suitable for your skin type!
I recently went to reclaim Med Spa, this was my first experience with any treatment for rejuvenating my skin. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and put me at ease. I got their new Italian PRX-T3 skin biorevitalizer treatment for my face. It was amazing at how simple the treatment was and that there was literally no downtime. The experience was similar to getting a simple massage, and the product was simply washed away with water. I look forward to future treatments. I would highly recommend not only this product but especially this particular location.
I absolutely love this place. Everybody is so friendly and kind. I got lip filler and I am in love with the results. Anastasiya is amazing!! I recommend her a 100%. She is the best.
So many compliments on my skin! People tell me my skin glows. Elena is a master at what she does. She is knowledgeble and talented. She has taken my skin to a whole new level. I am addicted to the PRXT. Highly highly recommend

Nothing but good things to say about this spa and their professionals. I saw Khrystyna for my hormonal acne and I cannot thank her enough for helping me battle my problem for over 5 years and achieve the results that I have been yearning for years. She did a very personal treatment plan for me, and one treatment in specific she did was the PRXT, a fantastic facial!! So glad that they have this on their menu it's the only thing that helped my melasma!
Personable and friendly staff. Happy with my services and results. Thank you Dr. Shapiro, Elena and Khrystyna for my treatments! :)
I have been to this spa on numerous occasions and always received great treatment and great results. I highly recommend Reclaim as they are easy to schedule with and have such a wide array of high quality treatments with an amazing doctor (Dr. Shapiro) on site.
Elena and Dr Shapiro are wonderful to work with and are extremely knowledgeable and professional. They are very clear on the recommended procedures and expected outcomes. I could not imagine going anywhere else.
I have been coming to see Khrystyna for a few months now to improve the health of my skin and cool sculpting for my chin. Every time I come, I look and feel my best. Improvement at each appointment with amazing results. Will definitely be a long-term client! Highly recommend this med spa!
