As we age, dynamic muscle movement under our skin can create etchings, those etchings will turn into lines eventually, becoming noticeable at rest. Areas where this is most evident is the upper portion of the face where there is less fat to cushion the skin and are known as “11’s, worry lines, and smile lines”. The muscles responsible for those lines can be “relaxed” temporarily with an FDA approved injectable medication such as Botox or Dysport. The efficacy of these injections make them the most popular non-surgical procedure worldwide. 

What can wrinkle relaxers treat?

These FDA approved purified proteins (AKA Botox) are injected into specific areas of the face to promote the appearance of smoother skin.  Botox is also used to help with brow or smile asymmetry, helps lift the eyebrows, can eliminate underarm sweating, facial contouring, decreases TMJ muscle tone, chin pebble appearance, neck aging, upper lip sweating, and preventative for early aging concerns. Each person has unique anatomy and unique concerns, meaning that their “dose” or amount of units may differ from another person, ensuring that you get the most tailorable yet natural results. 

What to expect from your first appointment?

The initial Botox appointment can last up to 45 minutes. During this time a thorough medical history consultation will be completed, educating the client on what amount of medication would be best suited for them. This allows each individual to decide which direction they would like to start regarding this service

When will I start to notice a difference?

On the day of your treatment, your provider will discuss with you the amount of units to achieve your goal, immediately afterwards there is very little evidence of any injections after the initial 20 minutes. A few days after your injections, you may notice the “settling in” of your Botox treatment and results are continuous until day 14, which is when a follow  with your provider is encouraged. Results typically last 3-4 months in areas of the face and longer results for areas of the body.

This procedure is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with current infections or severe allergies, nor Individuals on certain prescribed medications. Full consultation before treatment is required.
