Oh, hey fines lines...see ya later.
Don’t trust your face to just anyone. When you opt for treatment you’re choosing the injector, not the product. A natural, subtle result from your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is all about proper placement and volume.
Whose chair are you sitting in for treatment? There’s a reason our med spa has been around for over 25 years, and administering injectables is one of them. Our expert injectors (made up of Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists (CANS) or a Physician Assistant) will thoroughly assess your facial anatomy, listen to your concerns, and discuss all possible product options with you.
Facial Aesthetics has been recognized by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, as being in the top 1% of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal filler injectors not only in and around Denver, but throughout the country.

Let us answer your questions. If it’s not answered here, don’t hesitate to call us. We’d love to help you learn more about the many uses of Botox.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neurotoxin that is injected by units from a syringe into the face to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. More units cause less movement. Less units cause more movement.
A subtle, natural look is always achievable, whether you opt for some movement or little to no movement.
Talk with your clinician about what result is best for you.
If you suffer from lines or wrinkles this is the product for you. Targeted injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic into facial tissue temporarily interrupt nerve signals to nearby muscles. Even deep-set wrinkles can find some improvement. It also has many other cosmetic uses including being injected into the armpits to halt excessive sweating.
To fully determine your candidacy for this injectable, schedule a consultation with one of our expert aesthetic injectors. At the initial consultation, we will discuss your needs and overall goals.
*Prior to consultation, please be aware that if you are pregnant or nursing, you are NOT a candidate to receive treatment. Please wait until after pregnancy and once fully through with nursing to receive treatment.
You will also want to inform us of anything else that may hinder your cosmetic results, including:
Sometimes, people find that they do not meet the requirements to be a BOTOX® Cosmetic patient. If this is the case, our team may recommend other skin care treatments to help you get the youthful appearance you’re hoping to achieve.
We understand why the word “toxin” gives people pause when they learn that BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from Botulinum toxin A. But, just because Botox is a toxin, doesn’t mean it is toxic. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from a purified form of Botulinum toxin A. It is also diluted with a saline solution before it is injected. That means that BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered in concentrations far below harmful levels.
As the most extensively studied non-surgical medical aesthetic treatment, Botox is safe and effective and approved for cosmetic use in up to 78 countries. There have been over 8 million procedures performed among Americans in the last year alone.
That being said, any medical treatment can be dangerous in the wrong hands. You shouldn’t trust your BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure to an amateur. Remember it’s the skill, talent and experience of the injector you’re buying, not the product. Always make sure you do your homework and are putting yourself in a safe and certified environment to receive treatment.
The cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic can vary as it depends on the number of units you receive at treatment. Whether your needs are a sprinkling or more full coverage, the price is ultimately determined by what you’re trying to achieve.
Beware if you see prices that seem too good to be true, chances are good they are. If you simply go for the cheapest option available, the probability of a subpar treatment, unpredictable results, and potentially an inexperienced injector are high.
Instead of opting for the cheapest BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment available, opt for experience and the right fit. Being able to trust your injector is so important. After all, this is your face we’re talking about.
Our practice is ranked among the top 50 in the nation by Allergan, the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic. That means we’re in the top 1 percent of BOTOX® Cosmetic providers in the country (over 35,000 accounts nationwide). We inject all day, every day, and we’ve also been voted the top med spa in Colorado by readers of 5280 Magazine.
It’s important not to allow BOTOX® Cosmetic to wear off completely, because the muscles will start contracting again causing progression of the line or wrinkle. Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is a temporary procedure the results will most likely last 2.5-3.5 months. It is important for you to keep up your appointment schedule to maintain your results. For this reason, we highly recommend you schedule your next appointment before you leave.
