BOTOX is by far the most popular non-surgical injectable treatment for reducing dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX works by injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin medication into specific muscles of the face that are responsible for the lines and creases.
The medication temporarily relaxes targeted muscles by blocking nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. Many men and women use BOTOX to help them achieve or preserve a younger-looking appearance. BOTOX can provide significant wrinkle reduction without the downtime of surgical procedures.
What to Expect
During your consultation, one of our experienced BOTOX providers will examine your facial anatomy and discuss your concerns. From there, you and your provider will be able to create a plan that can address your specific concerns and provide optimal results.
BOTOX injections can be administered quickly, and they are virtually painless. Common areas that are treated with BOTOX include:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
Depending on your needs, your provider may suggest a more comprehensive treatment plan. BOTOX is often combined with dermal fillers to provide more dramatic results. BOTOX can also be combined with many facial surgical procedures such as a facelift and eyelid lift.
Your BOTOX Results
The softening of facial lines occurs 2 to 10 days after the administration of BOTOX. Minor side effects after your BOTOX treatment may include tenderness, bruising, swelling, or redness.
Although individual results can vary, many men and women enjoy their refreshed look for up to 3 to 4 months before needing maintenance treatments.
