BOTOX™ is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry and is most commonly used for reducing the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles.
For enhanced results, Botox is frequently combined with injectable wrinkle fillers, such as Juvederm™, Juvederm Ultra™, Vollure™, and Vobella™.
What is BOTOX™ Cosmetic?
BOTOX™ Cosmetic is a highly purified protein that has a better safety record than the common aspirin. Since the FDA approved BOTOX™ in 2002, over 11 million men and women have been treated, making it the number one cosmetic product in the US today.
How does it work?
Botulinum toxin or commonly known as Botox™, targets one of the underlying causes of wrinkles such as frown lines and crow’s feet. When injected into the corresponding areas of concern, it works by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching muscles, therefore paralyzing them. Botox™ temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines. Botulinum toxin has proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein for temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines.
How long does BOTOX™ last?
Typically, it takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect. In very rare circumstances, it may take as long as 4-8 days for the full effect of botulinum toxin to be observed. Full effect can sometimes take up to two weeks, however, the results last up to 3-4 months. To maintain your new look, you will need to repeat treatments approximately every 3-4 months.
What are the benefits?
The best non-surgical solution to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, many men and women can experience a flawless complexion without the need for surgical enhancement. BOTOX™ Cosmetic is minimally invasive and can help with wrinkles on the forehead and crow’s feet around the eyes. Also a clinically proven way to lift the brows, since over time your eyebrows begin to drop or lower, with BOTOX™ Cosmetic treatments you can lift the brow making your face look less tired, giving you a more youthful appearance.
Will I look overdone?
Botox™ Cosmetic is a technique sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment. Our facility does not have a minimum or maximum price you have to purchase. We advise you consult with the provider the time of your appointment and discuss your expectations.
Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with Botox™ Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Any injections can hurt, but the needles used for Botox™ injections are very small, so if there is any pain or discomfort it will be minimal. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream or may use an ice pack to numb the area before administering your treatment.
How long does the treatment take and what do I do after injections?
The injection treatment including speaking with your provider can take approximately 15- 20 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. Post injection treatment, we highly recommend not to lay down up to 4 hours, skipping the gym for at least 24 hours and not massaging the injections site because possible swelling bruising and redness that often occurs after receiving Botox injections. All these recommendations are for the best post treatment results and give the Botox the full time to settle in and do its job.
What Is Kybella™ ?
Kybella™ is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also called “double chin”. It is not known if Kybella™ is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area and in children less than 18 years of age.
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.

- You don’t want surgery
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are

How many treatment sessions will I need?
Your healthcare provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.
What can I expect after my treatment session?
For most patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities, but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment.
Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and /or injectable local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. He or she may also suggest you take an over-the-counter pain reliver before your appointment. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.
