What Is BOTOX?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable that softens the facial wrinkles and expression lines formed due to the overuse of facial muscles. When injected into targeted muscles on the face, it softens the frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet, making you look younger. Medical Aesthetics provides expertly administered BOTOX in Evergreen, CO.

What Does BOTOX Treat?

  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Frown lines or glabellar lines between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Creases around the nose bridge, also known as bunny lines
  • Lipstick lines around the mouth, also known as smoker’s lines
  • Drooping corners of the mouth
  • Creases on the chin, also known as a cobblestone chin

How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX is a neuromodulator, a type of cosmetic injectable made of a neurotoxin protein known as botulinum toxin type A. This neurotoxin protein temporarily blocks the transmission of signals from nerve endings to the associated muscles. When injected strategically, it temporarily freezes the facial muscles responsible for the formation of dynamic wrinkles, such as the frown lines and forehead lines, thereby softening your expression lines.

What Are the Unique Benefits of BOTOX?

  • Non-surgical treatment for the reduction of frown lines and forehead lines
  • Improves the overall appearance of your face
  • Doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort
  • Causes mild side effects that dissipate in a few days
  • You can resume your daily activities and work immediately

How Is the BOTOX Treatment Performed?

The BOTOX treatment is fairly simple. The aesthetic technician carefully examines your facial skin, discusses your goals, and determines if you’re a suitable candidate. If so, they curate the ideal treatment plan and select the appropriate dosage to ensure natural results. The treatment areas are marked on your face, and a numbing gel is applied to prevent discomfort. Finally, the aesthetic technician delivers BOTOX into the strategically chosen treatment areas via ultrafine needles. Depending on the number of injections and treatment areas, your entire treatment of BOTOX in Evergreen can conclude in 15 to 30 minutes.

What Are the Side Effects of BOTOX?

BOTOX doesn’t cause harsh side effects or complications. You may experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort for a few days, but most patients find it tolerable. In rare cases, the improper delivery of BOTOX (usually in the hands of inferior aesthetic technicians) may cause undesired results or drooping eyelids. However, our aesthetic technicians have a perfect track record with BOTOX — we ensure safe and natural results.

What is the Recovery Process After BOTOX?

BOTOX doesn’t involve downtime or an extended recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, but you should keep your head upright and avoid strenuous workouts for 24 hours. You should also avoid massaging the treatment areas because that might spread BOTOX to other areas. After 24 hours, you can resume all your activities.

When Will I See the Results From BOTOX?

The results from BOTOX appear gradually over several days. You’ll start noticing the results in 2 to 3 days, with continued improvements for up to 2 weeks. If you don’t see the desired results in 2 weeks, please contact your aesthetic technician about another dose.

How Long Do BOTOX Results Last?

BOTOX results last for 3 to 4 months, depending on the dose and your lifestyle. Your aesthetic technician will provide tips to extend the treatment’s results. You can also repeat the treatment 2 to 3 times a year to maintain the results all year long.

Am I a Candidate for BOTOX

You’re a suitable candidate for BOTOX if you’re at least 18 years of age, want to prevent or suppress dynamic wrinkles, and have realistic expectations from the treatment. BOTOX is also suitable for those without wrinkles because it can delay their onset. However, you should avoid/delay the treatment if you’re pregnant, nursing, or if you’re on blood-thinning medications.

At Medical Aesthetics, our aesthetic technicians carefully discuss your goals, review your medical history, and examine your treatment areas to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for BOTOX. If you’re not a suitable candidate, the aesthetic technician will recommend alternative treatments that may better address your goals.
