Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.  Botulinum toxin (Botox) is a neurotoxin. It is now produced by the bacterium Clostridium A. Botulinum toxin can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck
 
Botox is now diluted to a controlled solution. When injected into the muscles with a thin needle, it is almost painless.  Most patients notice results within 2-10 days for moderate to severe frown lines.  Botox delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you. 

What to expect?

Botox

You may begin to notice results in 2-10 days after your first treatment. This is with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines. Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave Laser Aesthetics of Maryville’s office.

How It Works

Botox targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Which is muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows. Our specialist will inject these muscles with Botox to reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, along with crow’s feet and forehead lines.

How It Feels

Botox Injections
Patients report that injections with Botox feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Our specialist can also apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment. The Botox injections have very small needles. Injections take about 15 minutes and are now done in our office. There is no waiting time and you can go home right after.

Before

Treatment
Have realistic expectations about what Botox can do for you. Be ready to discuss what facial areas you want to fixed. Confirm that Botox is right for you!
 
We will clean your skin with rubbing alcohol before you get Botox. Feel free to show up to your appointment with nothing on your skin, make-up free.
 
Stop medications that can thin your blood. Medications such as aspirin, blood thinners, ibuprofen etc.
