WHAT IS BOTOX?
BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and Crow’s feet lines in adults. BOTOX Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and Crow’s feet — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your Crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows that lasts for months.

Am I A Candidate For BOTOX?
Individuals who desire a nonsurgical solution to smooth forehead creases, Crow's feet, or frown lines may be ideal candidates for BOTOX services at About Face & Body Medical Spa. These treatments can be a great option if you have obvious "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that create a tired or aging appearance. BOTOX injections have gained a great reputation among younger individuals, too. Even though younger adults between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet exhibit the signs of aging, BOTOX can be used as a preventive solution to stave off the aging process by temporarily minimizing or delaying the advancement of age-related lines. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a neurological condition, or have an allergy to cow milk protein may not be candidates for BOTOX injections. During your consultation, we will review any relevant medical history to ensure you can enjoy the rejuvenating benefits of BOTOX.
What to expect with BOTOX
At a consultation, we will start by outlining your goals and developing a personalized treatment plan. This will allow us to place the BOTOX in the best treatment areas and determine how much you may need. Often, one of our expert team members can perform the injections during the same appointment. If so, we start by cleaning the skin and marking the spots on your complexion. Although the needle is fine, you may prefer a numbing cream to reduce discomfort; however, many patients find that they do not need it. Once your skin is ready, we gently administer the BOTOX. Following your treatment, you may have some tenderness and slight bruising. Our team will provide information on aftercare and when to schedule your follow-up appointments to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX
What is BOTOX used for?
BOTOX Cosmetic is used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles typically in the upper 1/3 of the face. BOTOX and its equivalents, Dysport® and Xeomin®, are all FDA-approved, purified forms of botulinum toxin used in cosmetic settings to temporarily treat overactive muscles that cause “dynamic” wrinkles.
Are BOTOX injections painful?
We use the smallest needles available to inject BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin. These are the same type of needles used for daily insulin injections. Most clients say the treatments are very tolerable, and we have several clever methods to help those who are anxious about the injections.
What are the possible side effects of BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are incredibly common and safe procedures. Depending on the injection site, cosmetic side effects may include eyelid drooping and swelling at the injection site.
How long will my results last?
BOTOX effectively relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles for at least three months. It varies how long it will take wrinkles to reappear, but it is usually between 3 – 5 months for most patients.
What is the ideal age to start treatments?
Although BOTOX Cosmetic is approved for adults over 18, we recommend treatments to begin when visible lines begin to appear, even when muscles are relaxed.
Can I combine BOTOX and other dermal fillers or treatments?
Yes! You can safely combine your injectable treatments for convenience. Most individuals experience not only lines from overactive muscles but also volume loss, as well as sun damage. Addressing all these factors of aging skin provides superior results! Many treatments, such as chemical peels, certain lasers, and others, can be followed with your BOTOX injections, and many clients opt to have combination treatments at the same visit. Our expert injectors always provide consults to discuss the safest and most effective approach.
