INJECTABLES

NEUROTOXINS

THE FACTS: BOTOX® Cosmetic is an iconic brand. It’s been approved for use in 95 countries. But find out the truth behind common misconceptions, and you’ll get to know BOTOX® Cosmetic even better.

WHAT IS BOTOX:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind*:

  • It’s the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines look better in adults

  • Treatment requires minimal downtime. You can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist's office.

  • You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. Full results in 30 days.

  • It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines.

HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with NEUROTOXINS to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice your frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines temporarily look better.

KEY BENEFITS OF BOTOX:

Discover the key benefits that make Botox the go-to solution for those seeking exceptional results in skin tightening, contouring, and overall skin rejuvenation. 

 

Wrinkle Reduction: Botox is renowned for its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, particularly in areas prone to dynamic movement like the forehead, crow's feet, and frown lines.

 

Preventive Measure: It's not just about addressing existing wrinkles; Botox can also be used preventively to hinder the formation of new lines by limiting muscle movement.

 

Non-Surgical Approach: Botox offers a non-surgical alternative to facial rejuvenation, making it a popular choice for those seeking subtle enhancements without undergoing invasive procedures.

TYPES OF BOTOX PROCEDURES

Types of Botox Procedures:

 

Forehead Lines: Botox can be strategically injected to smooth horizontal lines across the forehead, resulting from repetitive facial expressions.

 

Crow's Feet: The fine lines that form around the eyes, known as crow's feet, can be softened with precise Botox injections.

 

Frown Lines (Glabellar Lines): Botox is effective in minimizing the vertical lines between the eyebrows that often create an unintentional stern or angry look.

 

Steps to Follow Before the Procedure:

 

Consultation: Schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced practitioner to discuss your goals, medical history, and expectations.

 

Medical Assessment: Ensure that the practitioner conducts a thorough medical assessment to determine your eligibility for Botox, addressing any concerns or contraindications.

 

Discuss Expectations: Clearly communicate your desired outcomes and ensure realistic expectations are set regarding the results and longevity of the treatment.



THE PREP:

 

  • Kindly agree to discontinue any irritant type topical products or treatments involving:

 

  • Skincare Products: Refrain from using irritant-type topical products, including Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Beta Hydroxy Acid, Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin C (in a low pH formula), scrubs, or any skincare items perceived as 'active.'

 

  • Professional Treatments: Avoid recent microdermabrasion and laser treatments, allowing your skin to be at its most receptive state.

 

  • Sun Exposure: Steer clear of prolonged sun exposure to the area designated for treatment, safeguarding your skin's readiness.

 

  • Sunburned Skin: A treatment will not be administered on sunburned skin, prioritizing your skin's health and comfort.

WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED:

 

​Immediately after your treatment, you will feel as your skin embarks on a journey of renewal, akin to a moderate sunburn:

 

  • Immediate Effects: While full results may take a few days to manifest, some patients notice an immediate improvement in the treated areas.

 

  • No Downtime: Botox is a lunchtime procedure for many, requiring minimal downtime. Most individuals resume regular activities right after treatment.

 

  • Gradual Results: The full effects of Botox typically become apparent within 7 to 14 days post-treatment, as the neurotoxin takes its full effect on muscle activity.


 

AFTERMATH:​

 

Avoid Touching Treated Areas: Refrain from touching or massaging the treated areas immediately after the procedure to prevent the spread of Botox to unintended muscles.

 

Stay Upright: For the first few hours after treatment, maintain an upright position and avoid lying down to minimize the risk of Botox migration.

 

Follow-Up: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments to assess the results and address any concerns or additional treatment needs.

DO I NEED TO BE OVER 40 TO START USING NEUROTOXINS?

It's not your age that determines when NEUROTOXINS is right for you, it's the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.

The truth is, everyone's lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES NEUROTOXINS TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?

We will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. If the HCP deems you to be an appropriate candidate, the injection may take place on that same day. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY? HOW LONG DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC LAST?

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave our office.

HOW MANY INJECTIONS WILL I RECEIVE?

Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. We will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.
