Botox is a popular injectable treatment for women and men who want more youthful, refreshed, and vibrant appearances. This cosmetic treatment reduces the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines, like those that appear in between the brows and around the eyes. If would you like to reduce signs of aging, call us to learn more about Botox Cosmetic injections at our Scottsdale office: 877-252-1396.

How Does Botox Work?

As you age, the repetitive motions that your facial muscles make contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Over time the wrinkles can become permanent, and they can be noticeable even if you’re not moving those muscles. Botox is the brand name for botulinum toxin. It’s a toxin that causes muscle weakness. When injected in very small amounts into your facial muscles, the muscles relax, which reduces the pull they exert on the skin. As a result, wrinkles relax, soften, and can even disappear altogether!

What Can Botox Do for You?

Botox Cosmetic works on wrinkles and lines that are caused by common facial expressions like frowning and smiling. It can also help people who suffer from excessive sweating. The injectable won’t work on wrinkles that are caused by loss of facial volume or skin laxity.

  • Lines in Between Brows (Glabella or Frown Lines) — The lines in between the brows can become very deep. In some people, Botox Cosmetic can reduce the appearance of these lines. In others, the treatment may be able to eliminate the lines entirely.
  • Lines Around the Eyes (Crow’s Feet) — Facial muscle movements can cause lines to form between your eyes and crow’s feet to appear at the corners of your eyes. Botox can give you younger, brighter-looking eyes by reducing the appearance of these lines.
  • Underarm Sweating (Hyperhidrosis) — The North Texas heat is blistering at times, and many people find themselves sweating excessively. This kind of problem can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, and unattractive. Sometimes it can even limit your clothing choices. This is a problem that Botox Cosmetic can help to fix. Injecting Botox into the sweat glands under your arms will dramatically reduce the amount of sweat they produce, and it works in just a few days! With Botox, you can have the freedom and confidence to enjoy the outdoors whenever you want, even when the Texas heat is at its height.

How Long Do the Results of Botox Treatment Last?

Botox Cosmetic is a temporary treatment, although it does last longer in some people than in others. In general, most people can expect the results of their treatments to last for three to six months.

How Safe Is Botox Cosmetic?

Botox has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for wrinkle treatment in the U.S. since 2002. It was safely and widely used in Europe and Canada for many years before that, and still is today! If you’re concerned about safety, choose an experienced injectable specialist – someone who has performed Botox procedures many times and knows how to inject safely.

What’s Involved in a Botox Consultation?

During your consultation at our Scottsdale office, you’ll discuss your options for Botox Cosmetic and what will work best for you. You’ll also be able to ask any questions and voice any concerns you have.

What’s Involved in Treatment and Recovery?

Botox appointments are typically quick and they can be performed in under 30 minutes from start to finish. All treatments begin with a consultation where our Botox expert will assess your needs and discuss desired results. The serum is delivered via injection through an ultra-fine needle, so pain is minimal and patients can return back to work or normal daily activities immediately after treatment. There’s no recovery period and very few restrictions on your activity level. One restriction is that for the first 24 hours, it’s best to avoid exercise and strenuous activity. This is to reduce the risk of Botox spreading from the injection sites to other parts of the face.

How Much Botox Do You Need?

Botox treatments are given in units. For any given area, the number of units needed varies, depending on the strength of your facial muscles and the thickness of your skin. This means that men often need more units than women for similar levels of treatment. On average, you can expect to need 12 to 24 units per area in the most common areas:

  • Forehead
  • Glabella (in between the brows)
  • Crow’s feet

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

The results of Botox are immediate, with most patients realizing a dramatic improvement a few days following the procedure. Results last anywhere from 3-6 months. Patients can maintain results for longer periods by undergoing regular maintenance treatments.
