BOTOX® Cosmetic

Lines formed when you make certain facial expressions, called dynamic wrinkles, gradually become etched into your skin as a natural part of aging. However, if you feel that these “expression lines” don’t reflect your youthful spirit, BOTOX is an effective and popular option for erasing them. People from Springfield, Longmeadow, Northampton, and surrounding areas come to our locations to achieve a more youthful appearance with BOTOX.

What Is BOTOX?

BOTOX is made from botulinum toxin type A and belongs to a class of injectables called neuromodulators. These products temporarily disable facial muscles that cause expression lines. They are very safe and have been used in clinical settings for decades.

What Areas Can You Improve With BOTOX?

BOTOX is commonly used to correct:

  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes
  • Certain lines around the lips
  • Vertical neck bands

It can also be used for other applications beyond those listed above.

Does BOTOX Have Clinical Uses?

BOTOX has been used extensively for the relief of a variety of uncomfortable conditions. It can help with non-cosmetic concerns such as overactive sweat glands (hyperhidrosis), chronic migraines, and teeth grinding.

What To Expect During Your Treatment

Our specialist will ask you to make a few facial expressions, then mark the precise locations for the injections. The needle used for BOTOX is very fine, and the injections take mere seconds. The treatment typically takes around 15 minutes, and minimal downtime is needed. You might see redness and swelling at the injection sites, but these symptoms should subside in a day or two.  

For the best results from your BOTOX treatment, follow your injector’s aftercare instructions.

How Long Will Your Results Last?

Typically, BOTOX results last 3 to 4 months, at which point you may want another treatment to maintain your results. Evidence indicates that, with regularly scheduled BOTOX injections, the results will gradually last longer.

Can You Combine BOTOX With Other Cosmetic Procedures?

It is common to combine BOTOX injections with dermal fillers for more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. BOTOX can temporarily relax muscles that cause facial wrinkles, and fillers restore volume loss in areas such as the lips, cheeks, and nasolabial folds.
