What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is an injectable cosmetic treatment that softens the look of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. It’s FDA approved to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines — wrinkles that develop over the years as a result of repeated facial movements and expressions.

BOTOX is made of a toxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles in the treatment area, which stops the muscles from contracting. 

Stopping muscle contraction softens wrinkles by relaxing the muscles below the surface of the skin. BOTOX is a safe and effective treatment for frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines that lasts up to four months between treatments.

What can BOTOX treat?

BOTOX is the only FDA-approved injectable to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It temporarily makes these lines and wrinkles look better in adult patients. If you suffer from moderate to severe wrinkles on your forehead or around your eyes, BOTOX could be right for you.

Frown lines are those deep-set lines between the eyebrows that can make you look angry even when you aren’t. For frown lines, the team at Skin Deep MD typically uses five injections between your eyebrows and forehead to soften lines.

BOTOX treatment for crow’s feet, or lines around your eyes, typically takes three injections around each eye. The aesthetician performs three injections around the muscle that frames each eye, lessening the appearance of crow’s feet.

Forehead lines can appear anywhere across the forehead, and are typically treated with five injections of BOTOX. Your aesthetician targets the muscles in your forehead to help erase the look of forehead wrinkles.

What is the BOTOX procedure like?

When you come to Skin Deep MD for BOTOX, you’ll receive a customized treatment plan and recommendations to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. The number of injections the team recommends depends on your treatment area. 

Most BOTOX treatment sessions take only 10 minutes. Your aesthetician prepares your skin and performs three to five injections in each target area. If necessary, she applies ice or a topical numbing cream to help you remain comfortable during treatment.

Many patients begin noticing results 24 to 48 hours following the procedure. There’s no downtime with BOTOX, so you can return to your normal daily activities as soon as you leave the office. You can expect optimal results to last about four months. 

You don’t have to settle for lines and wrinkles that make you look older than you feel. BOTOX lessens the look of lines and wrinkles and gives you your confidence back. Schedule your first appointment at Skin Deep MD today to find out if BOTOX is right for you.
