BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable prescription treatment used to soften the appearance of facial wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. It is administered in a quick, painless session using a small injection needle.

What Issues Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Address?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is composed of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A. Harnessing the power of this neuromodulation, these injections soften facial wrinkles and fine lines that result from years of repeated muscle contractions. This highly purified protein offers unique advantages to adult patients of any age, effectively treating a number of aesthetic concerns such as:

  • Crow’s feet (fine lines at the outside corner of your eyes)
  • Frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
  • Wrinkles across the forehead
  • Other wrinkles caused by facial movement

The types of wrinkles listed above, called dynamic wrinkles, are formed by actions like furrowing your brow, laughing, smiling, squinting, and other movements that contract certain facial muscles repeatedly over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to stop the wrinkling in your skin created by these muscular contractions. After about three to six months, the effects of the injectable will wear off and re-treatment will be necessary to refresh your results.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is very effective at softening dynamic lines. If you are unhappy with the appearance of sunspots, dry skin, or uneven pigmentation, you may want to inquire about our professional, advanced skincare products or other aesthetic services.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Most people, men and women alike, are great candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic. If you are displeased by the appearance of dynamic facial lines, you are likely a good candidate for the injectable.

At Artemis Colorado Vein & Cosmetic Center, we consider you an ideal candidate for these injections if you:

  • Do not have any known allergies to BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Are at least 18 years of age
  • Are not pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment
  • Do not have pre-existing skin conditions or facial scars
  • Have adequate facial muscle strength
  • Have good facial symmetry

The best way to determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to meet personally with our Westminster aesthetic team. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin’s condition and discuss your desired outcome. Our team will explain all of your treatment options and guide you toward the aesthetic solution that best meets your unique goals, budget, and lifestyle.

What to Expect During Your BOTOX® Treatment in Westminster

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are quick and comfortable. Using a very small needle, our aesthetic nurse injector administers the special formulation beneath the skin’s surface. Once the formula is injected into a targeted muscle, the muscle begins to relax, temporarily reducing its movement.

You may experience a minor pinching sensation during the injection process. The amount of time necessary to complete your treatment session depends on the number of areas being treated and the units being injected. It typically takes less than five minutes to treat each area.

Following your treatment session, you may experience faint swelling and redness at the injection site. You will likely begin to notice results within several hours to several days after your treatment, with the most noticeable improvements emerging after about two weeks.

How Long do BOTOX® Cosmetic Results Last?

Although the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic are long-lasting, they are not permanent. For most people, the effects will diminish after approximately three to six months, but results can be maintained with re-injection. Our team can help you design an ongoing treatment plan to keep you looking youthful and rejuvenated.

 

How Much Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Cost?

The cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic varies from patient to patient, depending on the number of areas being treated and the amount of the injection being used. At your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with an estimate of the final cost and help you decide if it’s the right course of treatment for your facial lines.

Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Safe?

Since its FDA approval in 2002, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country, helping millions of women and men achieve natural, youthful-looking results.

While this treatment is a resoundingly safe procedure, there are certain potential side effects to consider. These very rare, temporary and mild side effects include:

  • Allergic reactions to one of the ingredients
  • Headache
  • Redness or minor swelling in the treatment area
  • Temporary muscle weakness in the surrounding area
  • Nausea

Your safety and comfort are our top priorities. Our team will discuss all of your treatment options and what you can expect from every procedure.

Do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Hurt?

One of the reasons BOTOX® Cosmetic can be a great option is because it’s virtually painless. Some people feel mild discomfort while the injection is happening, but many patients report no discomfort at all.

Will I Look Frozen?

Some people worry that BOTOX® Cosmetic will give them a “frozen” appearance. At Artemis Aesthetic Center, we take pride in creating subtle, natural-looking results. The key to avoiding a frozen or unnatural appearance is to ensure your muscles don’t become overly relaxed.

By working to achieve a moderate effect, our certified aesthetic nurse injector will ensure that you look refreshed while still able to display your emotions naturally through facial movement.
