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 number of units injected to achieve your goal.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a common and effective treatment for the following: forehead lines, frown lines (aka 11’s or glabellar), crow’s feet, bunny lines, upper lip, smoker’s lines, vertical lines of the neck (platysmal bands), horizontal lines of the next (necklace lines), dimpled chin, excessive sweating, gummy smile, under eye wrinkles, jaw slimming, TMJ, and prejuvenation.
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.
Botox® can be injected directly into muscles, temporarily blocking nerve impulses and relaxing them. With blocked nerve impulses, muscle contraction is reduced (temporarily) preventing dynamic wrinkles and giving facial skin a smoother, younger appearance.
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 reconstituted with a saline solution before it is injected, which means it is administered in concentrations far below harmful levels.
Botox is the most extensively studied non-surgical medical aesthetic treatment (over 30 years of study and innovation). It has been FDA approved for 11 therapeutic and 3 cosmetic uses. 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 should trust your BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure to an experienced, responsible and certified injector. Remember it’s the skill, talent and experience of the injector that you are buying, not the product. Always make sure you do your homework and are putting yourself in a safe and certified environment to receive treatment.
In theory, most women are suitable for Botox® treatments, however, suitability and results can vary from client to client. With this in mind, Facial Aesthetics Inc will discuss your options and assess your candidacy with safety at the heart of all pre-treatment consultations.
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. This is because the muscles will start contracting again causing progression of the line or wrinkle. We like to build off the last treatment results and not have to reteach the muscle. 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.
