Botox is a cosmetic 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.

How Is the Botox Treatment Performed?
The Botox treatment is fairly simple. The cosmetic provider 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 cosmetic provider delivers Botox into the strategically chosen treatment areas via ultrafine needles. Depending on the number of injections and treatment areas, your entire Botox in Evergreen, CO 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 doctors) may cause undesired results or drooping eyelids. However, our cosmetic doctors have a perfect track record with Botox — we ensure safe and natural results.
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 cosmetic providers 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 cosmetic provider will recommend alternative treatments that may better address your goals.
