What Is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved liquid injectable produced by Allergan Inc. for a wide range of medical uses— most notably for aesthetic beauty or cosmetic procedures. When used correctly, it temporarily reduces the appearance of moderate to severe facial frown lines and wrinkles. Botox works by weakening or paralyzing the underlying muscles to reduce the muscle contractions that cause lines in the face. Safely used for decades, Botox is a naturally occurring derivative from the bacterium toxin protein that Clostridium botulinum produces. When administered in small, regulated amounts, this purified bacteria safely and effectively minimizes wrinkles caused by facial expressions with very few side effects, yielding a more youthful appearance.

A Typical Season With Botox

Patients seeking Botox should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.

How Does Botox Work?

As part of the neurotoxin or neuromodulator family, Botox effectively targets the nervous system, disrupting the signaling process to stimulate muscle contractions. For a muscle to contract, the body sends chemical signals, called acetylcholine, to the nerve endings attached to the muscle cells’ receptors causing the muscle to contract or release. When used effectively by a qualified medical professional, Botox injections prevent acetylcholine release, inhibiting the muscle’s ability to tense up.

Used as a temporary muscle-relaxing treatment, Botox works on wrinkles activated by muscle movement. These dynamic wrinkles or expression lines are triggered by facial expressions when muscles in the face are used for squinting, smiling, frowning, laughing, etc. The most common targeted areas are the wrinkles between the brows, horizontal lines or creases on the forehead, lines at the corners of the mouth, and crow’s feet around the eyes’ outer edge. Botox treatments are non-permanent and require continued treatment to maintain wrinkle-reducing effects. Most patients typically see results within 7 to 14 days and experience benefits that last between 3 and 6 months or longer depending on the procedure.

What Botox Can't Do

Botox does not work on non-muscular facial lines and wrinkles caused by sun damage, gravity, or dull, sagging skin. These fine lines, known as static wrinkles, are typically found around the cheeks, neck, and jowl regions. The best way to combat static wrinkles is to schedule a consultation. We can review your problem areas and evaluate the best course of action. We may determine that a dermal filler or laser treatment may be a much better option.

Cost of Botox

Commonly measured in units, the price of Botox is pretty consistent, but the amount needed varies from patient to patient relative to the severity of the treatment area. Our prices also fluctuate depending on any manufacturer’s specials. We pass our savings on to you. It’s best to schedule a free consultation because results vary, and every patient is different.

Botox is a registered trademark of Allergan Inc. With a well-marketed brand name, Botox is one of a handful of commercial brands offering different versions of the botulinum toxin. Botox specifically uses the protein by-product that the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces called OnabotulinumtoxinA. It precisely targets and temporarily blocks the nervous system that sends signals to stimulate muscle contractions in the face. Botox is FDA-approved safe and has few side effects when administered by a trained professional.
Botox targets the underlying muscles that cause frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles from years of smiling, squinting, frowning, or raising your eyebrows. We delicately inject these facial muscles with Botox to temporarily reduce the muscle’s activity, smoothing out your frown lines between your eyebrows, the squint lines or crow’s feet around your eyes, and the wrinkles on your forehead.
Yes. We are a certified Botox provider. You are always welcome to ask to see the Botox Cosmetic vial used for your injection. Only when requested do we offer other FDA-approved neuromodulator cosmetic injectables. To learn more about the different options available, please visit (/cosmetic-treatments/botox-injectables/)
Botox is an FDA-approved prescription medication with a long history of uses in therapeutic, medical, and aesthetic treatments since the late ’80s. Approved for use in 98 countries, supported by over 16 years of published studies, and reported in more than 528 peer-reviewed articles, Botox is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind.
Sometimes. Check our Specials Page periodically for our monthly specials and contests on cosmetic procedures we offer. If we receive a discount from the manufacturer, we pass those cost savings on to our customers.
No. There has been a significant increase in the number of men scheduling appointments for Botox with our office. Maybe it coincides with the uptick in social media, but the stereotype that it’s only for women is quickly changing. Men want to look younger too; from crow’s feet to forehead and frown lines, men have some of the same concerns women do. With trending marketing campaigns targeting men specifically with keywords like “Brotox,” the walls of gender biases are coming down.

Botox Precautions

Botox Precautions

Answers to common concerns about Botoxin treatments.

Botox side effects are usually minor and include redness, swelling, discomfort, tenderness, and bruising around the injection site. For more information regarding the possible side effects of Botox, please visit Allergan’s website.

Two weeks before getting Botox, it’s best to avoid any alcohol and anticoagulants (blood thinners) like aspirin and ibuprofen. These could hinder the body’s ability to clot blood and increase blood vessels’ fragility, causing excess bruising. Some other items to avoid are fish oil, multivitamins, green tea, and red wine.

No. A patient may not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Please alert our office if you think you may be pregnant.

We treat patients over the age of 18, but most start in their late 20s to early 30s with others discovering the youthful benefits in their mid to late 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70s. There are many factors that best determine when Botox is right for you: age; heredity; sun exposure; collagen levels; the severity of your lines and wrinkles; and whether your lines bother you. If you have any additional questions, give us a call. We’ll be happy to answer them for you. We want you to make the best-educated decision regarding your treatment path. When it’s the right time for you, it’s the right time for us.

COMMON BOTOX USES

Nationwide, Botox injections are the most commonly requested and performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures. A notoriously popular treatment amongst a female-dominated clientele, men are beginning to notice the youthful, anti-aging benefits. Brotox has become a trending marketing tagline, targeting male patients. Gone are the days where only metrosexuals considered aesthetic improvements. In general, men are becoming more proactive about their aging appearance and want to look younger and healthier. It does not require anesthesia, and with a quick appointment lasting 10 to 20 minutes (depending on the treatment), there is little to no downtime. You could schedule your appointment on your lunch break and return almost immediately to your daily routine. Results are generally visible within 24 to 48 hours. We use a small, thin needle when injecting Botox, but patients may experience slight discomfort at the injection site.

Botox has many beneficial cosmetic and non-cosmetic purposes, but our office's primary use is the aesthetic reduction in the appearance of wrinkles on the face. We recommend starting preventative treatments early; at the first signs of wrinkles before becoming permanent, deep, and bothersome creases. Younger patients typically start using Botox in their late twenties to early thirties when expression lines begin to become noticeable. Some older patients discover the fountain of youth benefits in their 40's to 60's and on. Regardless of your age, there's no better time to come in for a complimentary consultation.
