What is Botox®?
Botox® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles responsible for facial expressions and used to temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Most often, Botox® is used to improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. Botox® is also effective as a preventative measure to smooth out and prevent the worsening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® Cosmetic is a safe and rigorously tested medication that can be injected in very small amounts to cause the muscles responsible for furrowing the brows to temporarily relax. This reduces the appearance of facial lines, leaving you looking younger and more vibrant.
What is a Botox® Treatment Like?
Botox® is a simple, non-surgical injectable treatment that relaxes the facial muscles that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions. In some cases, it can also be injected into muscles to produce a “lifting” effect.
Botox® has been widely tested and established and has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic use since 2002. However, it should always be injected by a qualified professional. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery’s Advanced Clinical MedSpa, Botox® injections are performed by experienced Nurse Injectors.
The areas most commonly injected are:
- Crow’s feet
- Glabella (lines between eyebrows)
El Paso Cosmetic Surgery normally does not sell Botox® by the unit, but rather by the area. However, we recognize that it is important that each patient is considered case by case, and Botox® can be adjusted and sold by the unit if needed.
Having an Allergan Trainer on our team allows our experienced nurse injectors to inject Botox® into other off-label areas safely. Some of the areas may include:
- Armpits, to treat excessive sweating
- Masseter muscle, to soften a pronounced jawline
- Platysmal bands on the neck
- Upper lip, to reduce a “gummy” smile
- Chin and lower face
- Brow area, for an effect similar to a brow lift
Recovery and Results After a Botox® Treatment?
There is no downtime required with Botox®. However, we do not recommend any vigorous exercise for 24 hours post-injection. A patient is also recommended not to lay flat on their back for the first four hours after injection, and to avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours to decrease the risk of bruising.
Results can usually be seen within four to ten days, with full results seen two weeks after being treated. Treatment results usually last three to four months. The effects of Botox® are dependent on a patient’s metabolism, as this contributes to the breakdown of the product over time. It is recommended to be treated on a regular basis to retain results and wrinkle reduction.
Am I a Good Botox® Candidate?
You may be a great candidate for Botox® if you:
- Are at least 18 years old. All patients are evaluated case by case. Generally, Botox® patients are 25+
- Want preventative measures for fine lines and wrinkles
- Feel like you notice an “11” between your eyebrows that make you look tired or unapproachable
- Are looking for a treatment that provides noticeable results with no surgery or recovery time.
