What is Botox® Cosmetic?

When people mention Botox®, they are typically referring to Botox® Cosmetic, a procedure formulated to smooth facial lines and wrinkles by blocking specific nerve messages to corresponding facial muscles. Approved by the FDA, and used by men and women alike all over the United States and world, patients can enjoy long-term successful results with Botox® when applied by a medical professional such as Dr. Spiers. Botox® is a purified protein derivative prepared in a sterile liquid solution and is delivered by small injections to the targeted muscle. Results last three to four months.

Botox® Cosmetic Benefits

There are several advantages with Botox® Cosmetic compared to other procedures. Treatments are small injections rather than a more invasive plastic surgery procedure, and a Botox® session typically takes 10 minutes instead of hours. There is little to no downtime after the procedure, results are apparent in several days, and there are minimal long-term risks with Botox®, as opposed to an invasive surgical procedure. Regular treatments are most effective in maintaining a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.

How Does Botox® Cosmetic Treatment Work?

Facial muscles that are used repeatedly over many years begin to form lines and furrows. The active ingredient in Botox® (onabotulinumtoxin A) is injected into the targeted area in very small portions to help reduce that repetitious activity by blocking the nerve's ability to contract the muscle. The absence of those contractions lends a smooth appearance to the target area without affecting movement in other areas of the face.

The procedure takes about 10 minutes and is administered with a very small needle. For most patients, the injection feels like a small pinch. Patients can resume normal activity the day of their treatment. Results can be apparent in as early as several days, with a full effect reached in about one to two weeks and lasting for three to four months. During your initial consultation with Dr. Spiers, a schedule for further regular treatments can be discussed.

Botox® Cosmetic Recovery

Patients can resume normal activity on the day of their appointment. Dr. Spiers may give specific instructions for taking care of the injection sites after the appointment, and will caution not to rub or massage the areas in and around the injection sites as it may disrupt even distribution of the treatment under the skin. Patients are sent home with instructions and encouraged to follow up if any listed concerns occur. Patients typically see improvements in several days, and effects last three to four months.

Botox® Cosmetic Safety & Risks

It is important to Dr. Spiers that your relevant health history and medical concerns are discussed prior to your Botox® Cosmetic treatment. This may include allergies or other sensitivities to ensure both doctor and patient understand any risks involving this procedure, based on your unique medical history. This cosmetic is not for pregnant or nursing women.

Alternatives and/or Complimentary Treatment to Botox® Cosmetic

Some patients may choose to complement their Botox® Cosmetic treatment with other dermal filler options like Juvéderm® or Restylane®. Ask Dr. Spiers about the choices available to you.
