When our facial muscles contract, they create dynamic expression lines that appear and disappear as our face moves. Over time, dynamic expression lines can become permanent, with creases or wrinkles etching their way into our face.
BOTOX® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that can be used to smooth out dynamic wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that create them, causing lines to diminish dramatically or disappear for a younger, wrinkle-free look.
The professional nurse injectors at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery are knowledgeable and experienced in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic for smoothing out dynamic wrinkles. In addition to BOTOX®, our trained nurse injectors offer a wide range of other nonsurgical rejuvenation options to help women and men enjoy a fresh, revitalized appearance.

Prior to scheduling a BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, it’s important to have a consultation with a member of the aesthetic team. During your consultation, you can discuss your goals for treatment and the results you hope to achieve. A skilled nurse injector can help answer any questions or concerns you may have, as well as recommend the best approach to meet your needs.
Depending upon your specific goals, a combination approach may offer you the best results. Some people use BOTOX® to address the upper face while selecting a dermal filler such as Voluma™, JUVÉDERM® or RADIESSE® to target areas around the mouth, lips and cheeks that look aged due to volume loss rather than dynamic expression.
By combining carefully selected nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments, you can experience optimal results. Anyone hoping to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles on their upper face may be a candidate for BOTOX®. However, BOTOX® injections are not recommended for nursing or pregnant women.
A BOTOX® treatment is quick and relatively painless. It typically takes no longer than 10 to 15 minutes, and feels like a slight pinprick. Your nurse injector will determine which facial muscles in the forehead and around the eyes need to be targeted. A very thin needle is then used to inject BOTOX® into the specific muscles, causing them to relax.
The number of injections needed will depend upon your facial anatomy and the areas that require treatment. The end result is smooth-looking skin and a reduction or disappearance of lines and wrinkles.
It can take 7 to 10 days after treatment to begin seeing results, and you can expect to see your final results after about 2 weeks. The results of BOTOX® can last up to 4 months. To maintain your smooth, more youthful appearance, you may choose to repeat treatments once you notice the effects of BOTOX® begin to fade. Some patients report that after several treatments, the effects of BOTOX® appear to last longer.
BOTOX® is what is known as a “lunchtime procedure,” meaning you can simply walk in and walk out, and no downtime is necessary for recovery. It is important to avoid rubbing, massaging or compressing the treated area for several hours after your appointment.
Aesthetic Plastic Surgery participates in the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program for patients who receive BOTOX®, as well as CoolSculpting®, JUVÉDERM®, JUVÉDERM® XC or Voluma™. Click here to learn more or to enroll.
