BOTOX® is an injectable filler developed to target the cause of fine lines and wrinkles. Overuse of facial expressions such as squinting, smiling, or frowning n cause constant muscle contractions, which create what is termed “dynamic wrinkles.” BOTOX® is injected into specific muscles so these muscles relax. BOTOX® gives you smoother skin with fewer wrinkles.

What can BOTOX® be used for?

How does BOTOX® work?

The active ingredient in BOTOX® is a tiny quantity of botulinum toxin. When injected, the product inhibits the release of acetylcholine, which effectively stops the contraction of small, localized facial muscles. Those muscles enter into a temporary paralysis during the days following your treatment, and lines and wrinkles gradually fade to become virtually unnoticeable.

What should I expect with a BOTOX® treatment?

Our certified medical assistant and licensed Master Aesthetician identifies the areas for injection that will best reduce the appearance of wrinkles. A measured dose of BOTOX® is then injected beneath the skin using a tiny needle. Most patients do not find the injections painful and are relatively comfortable throughout the treatment. You may feel a small pinch from the needle at the injection site. If you are concerned about any pain, we can use a numbing cream to ensure your comfort.

BOTOX® FAQ's

When is a good time to start getting BOTOX®?

You may choose to start BOTOX® treatments early as a preventative measure. In your 20s, it’s a great way to prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines, or later when you see deeper creases marring your skin. BOTOX® is suitable for men and women who want a younger look that appears natural and refreshed.

How long does it take and is there downtime?

Total treatment time can be under ten minutes. BOTOX® injections are non-surgical and require minimal to no downtime. You can return to your normal routine (aside from vigorous exercise) immediately, a great lunch hour treatment. It is important to avoid massaging the area or lying down on the treated areas for the first 24 hours.

When will I see results?

Results can be seen in as little as three days but will continue to improve over time. You should allow two weeks to experience your optimal results.

How long do the results last?

Results of BOTOX® typically last three to four months. Taking care of your skin with a good UV sunscreen and moisturizer can help to extend the results.

How many BOTOX® injections should I expect?

At Northwest Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we take significant time to assess each person’s skin care needs and goals. With that said, it is hard to give a specific number of how many injections you’ll need until we perform that assessment. As a guideline, each target muscle can be injected three to five times. Your specific treatment is mapped and recorded in your chart for reference so that the same treatment or modifications can be performed accurately in the future.

What are the most common side effects of BOTOX®?

BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA for use in smoothing facial wrinkles, lines, and creases. Mild side effects can include temporary pain, discomfort or bruising around the injection site.

Is it safe if I am pregnant?

We do not recommend BOTOX® treatments for any woman that is pregnant or breastfeeding. Although the treatment area is local, it may have unknown effects on a growing baby. Out of an overabundance of caution, we would recommend other treatments such as mild facials or scrubs during this time.
