BOTOX Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent that targets the muscles that cause wrinkles. The skin and persistent lines that develop over time smooth out when the muscle is relaxed.

BOTOX Cosmetic treatments take only 15-20 minutes. Treatment is fast, simple and minimally invasive. BOTOX keeps the muscles that cause lines relaxed for three to six months. Results are visible within 7-10 days after treatment.

Botox injections are one of the most common cosmetic enhancements used today in relation to anti-aging, wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and many other age related facial changes.
Botox is the medicine that relax muscles by inhibiting the secretion of acetylcholine needed for muscle contraction. It has been used for the past (25) years to treat such medical conditions as cervical dystonia, TMJ, and other neuromuscular disorders.

As you grow older your skin becomes less elastic due to the loss of collagen and reduced vascularization of tissues. Wrinkles occur when certain muscles become more dominant and the skin does not have the ability to be as elastic in response to these muscle contractions. In addition, muscles become constrictive and naturally form creases and wrinkles . Dynamic wrinkles (not a crease of the skin) can be eliminated or lessened by relaxing the dominant muscle as it competes against either an inferior muscle or in constricting skin elasticity. This is why certain patients of differing ages start to form wrinkles at different times as compared to other individuals.

Because muscles of the face are relatively small, it is necessary to introduce the medicine by injection so that the exact placement and the effect is achieved. By introducing the medicine into the exact muscle group responsible for the wrinkling, various aesthetic enhancements can be obtained in addition to elimination of the rhytids. Wrinkles of the forehead, crows feet, frown lines, and eyebrow shaping is easily achieved. Other specialty injections for gummy smiles, dimpled chin, bunny lines, vertical lip lines, and sad smile can be performed with Botox.

Commonly Asked Questions & Answers About BOTOX®

How does BOTOX® COSMETIC Work? When you smile, frown or make other facial expressions the muscles contract under the skin. The consistent movement of those muscles draws the skin together and causes it to become less elastic. The result turns into frown lines and wrinkles. When injected into muscles the Botox blocks nerve impulses from activating the muscles, so the skin above may appear relaxed.

However there are two types of wrinkles, static and dynamic. The static wrinkles are present with or without movement of the underlying muscles. These are the wrinkles that may or may not get improvement with Botox injections. Dynamic wrinkles appear with muscle movement and improve with muscle relaxation, in some cases with repeated treatments, the wrinkle can actually disappear. Dynamic wrinkles in the upper portion of the face respond well to BOTOX® and it is possible to raise and shape the eyebrows using Botox injections. The process of using Botox to raise and shape the eyebrows is called a Chemical Brow Lift. This is what gives the pretty winged look that many professional models and movie stars have.

BOTOX® works only when it is injected and then absorbed into the muscle that is the reason why it works so well around the eyes and forehead area. However BOTOX® can be used on the lower part of the face to lessen the look of dimpled chins, neck bands, drooping noses, bulging jaw muscles and fine lines around the lips.

What can I expect from BOTOX® ? The treatments are quick and virtually painless and most people do not require any anesthesia. The entire procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes with no recovery time. There are very few side effects and you will be able to resume normal activities immediately following the injection procedure. The results may vary but most people see an improvement within three to five days. The effect usually lasts three to five months. Repeated treatments can lead to longer lasting effects.

There are a few things we do differently at Ageless Beauty to give you the best possible result from BOTOX® along with the most comfortable experience…

1) We use a much smaller sized needle to do the injections with in comparison to the size most often used by others. The special small needle cost a lot more ($10 each vs. 30 cents each) but they reduce bruising and they cause much less discomfort and our patients are worth it.

2) We concentrate the BOTOX® as much as possible to make the injections as small as possible. This reduces swelling, reduces bruising, and increases the comfort level.

3) We keep a record of the exact amount and the precise location of each injection of BOTOX®. If you love the result, we can reproduce the result. If there is a problem with the result, we can adjust the position and amount of BOTOX® we use to give you a better result on your follow up treatments.

4) Your injections will always be performed by our Medical Director, Julie Benzie.

5) We will teach you what to do and what not to do after your injection to get the best possible result. A few pointers about sun exposure, lotions or other procedures you may have planned in the future.

Where is BOTOX® Cosmetic Used? BOTOX® Cosmetic primarily addresses lines in the skin known as “dynamic wrinkles,” which includes crow’s feet around the eyes and wrinkles visible while smiling, laughing or raising the eyebrows. These lines are normally less noticeable when your face is relaxed. BOTOX® Cosmetic may also be used for vertical bands in the neck.

Am I a good candidate? Candidates generally range from the ages of 25 to 70, as the majority of wrinkles in people over 70 are considered “static” and do not disappear when the skin relaxes. There are other procedures which target static wrinkles. Each patient is unique, however, and private consultations are recommended to determine the best and most effective treatment plan.

How is BOTOX® Cosmetic Administered? A small amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into the targeted areas. The amount of liquid which enters the skin is very small, and patients experience only minimal discomfort in the form of a slight pinch. No anesthetic is necessary, and you can continue with your everyday activities immediately following the procedure.

Are the injections painful? The injection needle is very small, which typically avoids any discomfort. The pinching sensation experienced lasts only a short time, and you will return to your usual activities without any painful aftereffects.

When will I notice the difference, and how long will it last? Patients usually see the full effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments three to eight days following the procedure, although this may be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. Results normally last for three to six months, and repeat treatments result in longer-lasting effects.

What happens as treatment begins to wear off? After three to six months, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic begin to wear off and wrinkles reappear, though often not as deep or visible as they were prior to treatment. In order to sustain smooth skin and a youthful look, three to four injections are usually required. By returning for repeat treatments, fewer injections are required in the future to maintain young-looking skin.

Is there any downtime? No. Following treatment, patients usually return to their jobs and normal activities immediately. It is recommended, however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day.

How much does BOTOX® Cosmetic cost? BOTOX® Cosmetic is sold by the unit. The number of units required to treat each area varies.
