Your Non-Surgical Route to Youthful Looks

We all age in different ways, but fine lines and facial wrinkles are two of the most common signs that the facial aging process has started to impact your look. BOTOX is an injectable treatment that can help you enjoy smoother, more youthful skin in under an hour. Also known as botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX is a non-surgical injectable treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions, crow’s feet, and other dynamic wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. In addition to being as quick and easy as it is effective, BOTOX can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures to leave you with truly comprehensive cosmetic results. This treatment is just one of many non-surgical aesthetic procedures we offer, and we’ll be excited to help you learn more about the various ways we can leave you both looking and feeling your very best. To get started, simply reach out to Elite Plastic Surgery at our Phoenix or Chandler locations and speak with a member of our team to set up your initial consultation today.

Do I Qualify?

Visiting Elite Plastic Surgery at our Phoenix or Chandler locations will give you an opportunity to meet with an experienced aesthetic specialist who will learn about your goals, get to know your skin’s unique qualities, and work with you to help you decide whether or not BOTOX is the right option for you.

The best candidates for BOTOX injections are in good health and show the following signs:

  • Dynamic wrinkles caused by facial expressions and muscle movements over time
  • Smile and/or frown lines
  • Lines around the eyes
  • Brow furrowing (making you look angry or sad)
  • Crow’s feet

How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX is a type of cosmetic treatment known as a neuromodulator. This means that it interrupts specific nerve signals to help reduce the presence of dynamic wrinkles. While some fine lines and wrinkles are caused by a loss of volume or slowed collagen production, others are caused by the repeated use of your facial muscles. These are known as dynamic wrinkles.

By interrupting the nerve signals that tell specific facial muscles to move, BOTOX can limit their use and effectively smooth over any dynamic wrinkles that have formed in the area. This same process prevents further wrinkles from forming, keeping the treatment area youthful and smooth for up to three or four months at a time.

What to Expect

During your consultation, our injection specialist will take a look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the specific facial muscles that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX will be carefully injected into the marked areas. 

Most patients report mild discomfort when the needle pierces the skin, but numbing creams and cold compresses can be used to make your treatment more comfortable. The whole process only takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete, at which point you’ll be able to resume your normal activities.

Other Considerations

Besides some swelling and redness that may last for up to three to four hours, you should be able to return to your regular schedule as soon as your injection session is over. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright the first night after the treatment. Your complete BOTOX results (including a smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) will become visible in about five to seven days. 

Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, help them feel younger, and generally leave them looking well-rested and rejuvenated…without any significant downtime or recovery period.
