BOTOX® is one of the most popular injectable anti-aging treatments available. It’s made with botulinumtoxin type A, which can block neurotransmitters in the muscles and prevent movement. This comes with a couple benefits – it can prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles (or wrinkles caused by movement and facial expressions) and it can also relax tense or furrowed muscles to smooth them out and lessen the appearance of creases or folds.
BOTOX® has been in use for decades as both a cosmetic and medical treatment. It comes with a very high safety profile, especially in the hands of a board-certified dermatologist. With BOTOX®, you can feel more confident in your skin without the need for surgery or downtime.

Your dermatologist can help you determine the right treatment approach for you with BOTOX®. It’s important to understand what it can and can’t do so you achieve the results you’re hoping for. BOTOX® is easily combined with other skincare treatments like chemical peels, or microneedling, as well as other injectable treatments like fillers. Our team can create a customized treatment plan for you during your consultation.
BOTOX® can be administered in a quick, 15-minute appointment. Most patients don’t require numbing cream, but your injector can supply one if needed. Once you’re ready and the area is cleansed, the product is carefully injected into the facial muscles where you want treatment. If you’re considering other cosmetic treatments, they can be performed at the same time.

There’s no downtime after Botox®, but it’s important to follow some steps afterward to achieve best results. For the first 30 minutes after treatment, you’ll need to exercise the treated muscles to help the product take hold faster. For the first four hours after treatment, you’ll need to avoid laying down or bending over, since this can cause unwanted blood flow to the area and cause the product to spread. Similarly, don’t massage or rub the treated area for the first 24 hours (take care when washing your face or applying makeup). Also, for the first 24 hours, avoid exercise, sweating, and hot, steamy environments. Make sure to wear SPF 30+ to protect your treated skin against sun damage.
Botox® can take up to two weeks before producing your final results, after which you can return for a touch-up if needed. It can last for three to four months before you can return for your next injection session.[inject-faq cat=’Cosmetic’ sub_cat=’Injectables – Botox’]
