BOTOX® Cosmetic injections for the treatment of facial wrinkles is one of the most common procedures performed at the Dermlounge and Richmond Aesthetic Surgery in Short Pump. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic injection is the most common cosmetic procedure performed worldwide. BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered with a series of very small injections and has essentially no downtime and very few, rare side effects. BOTOX® Cosmetic is used most commonly in patients ages 24 to 70 years old to treat of a number of conditions, and is widely used by both men and women.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are commonly used to rejuvenate the face, but also have been used to treat excessive underarm sweating.
The most common side effect that occurs is very mild redness along the injection sites that usually dissipates within 30 minutes of the procedure. Less commonly, some patients may experience a pinpoint bruise from the needle puncture that will take approximately 2-3 days to heal. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic begin between 2-5 days after treatment. After your first treatment, you will see the maximum effects at approximately four to eight weeks. During this period the wrinkled skin will begin to remodel, smooth out, and redrape. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not affect skin sensation, only muscle contraction. This means you will be able to feel all of the areas treated but you will not be able to fully contract the muscles. These results last approximately three to six months depending on the individual.
It is recommended to have a two week follow up appointment to make sure results are satisfactory.
The final results of BOTOX® Cosmetic may take 1-2 weeks to develop, though patients may notice improvements sooner. As the contracted muscles of the face begin to release, the wrinkles on the surface of the skin can appear less prominent for a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last 3-5 months, though individual results vary from patient to patient.
Maintaining your results with BOTOX® Cosmetic can be easily accomplished by scheduling routine touch-up appointments. Since results often begin wearing off at 3 months, many patients can benefit from 4 injection treatments per year. Even if your BOTOX® Cosmetic hasn’t completely worn off, our Nurse Injector can adjust the amount of product to be used to ensure you maintain a youthful yet still natural-looking appearance. Some patients who regularly receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments may notice their results begin to last longer over time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles, including moderate to severe horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, and the vertical lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Although there is no downtime associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic, some patients may experience mild discomfort, redness, or bruising at the injection site immediately after treatment. These side effects typically resolve very quickly. In rare cases, side effects may include headache, dry mouth, dry eyes, blurred vision, drooping of one or both eyelids (3%), or swelling of the eyelids. If you are experiencing any serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, please contact our office or your primary care physician immediately.
Glitzy's Nurse Injector customizes each BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment to suit the patient’s individual needs. As a result, there is no set price for treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Variables that can impact the total cost include the severity of the facial wrinkles, the number of treatment areas, and the amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic needed to achieve the patient’s goals. During your preliminary consultation, our Nurse will examine your face, discuss your cosmetic concerns, and tell you the cost of your custom-tailed treatment plan.
There are two types of wrinkles present on the face: dynamic and static.
- Dynamic wrinkles are present when a person is making facial expressions, such as raising the eyebrows or frowning. These wrinkled occur with repeated contraction of the facial muscle that cause pleating of the skin. Once these muscles are weakened the overlying pleats improve dramatically. Dynamic wrinkles such as as crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead creases are very easily treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
- Static wrinkles are wrinkles are present all the time even when no movement is occurring. Static wrinkles are caused by the effects of gravity and loss of facial volume. The most common static wrinkles encountered are marionette lines and parentheses around the mouth (the nasolabial fold). Because these wrinkles are caused by loss of volume, the best treatment is to add volume to these areas with a filler such as JUVÉDERM®.
The most common wrinkles treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic are the horizontal lines of the forehead, the vertical frown lines in between the eyebrows, and the crow’s feet around the eyes. Other areas treated are the vertical lines around the mouth (lipstick lines) from smoking or drinking from a straw, as well as the horizontal “bunny” lines across the bridge of the nose. BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to treat chin dimpling, platysmal bands of the neck, as well enlarged masseter muscles, which cause a larger jaw line in women.
Brotox & Dermal Filler for Men
Concern: Wrinkles on the forehead, around or between the eyes (11’s)
Treatment: Neuromodulators using Botox Cosmetic
The Low-Down: Botox is a neuromodulators that when injected into facial muscles, blocks the enzyme responsible for moving these muscles, and the temporarily minimizes the appearance of moderate-to-severe wrinkles. Each treatment is customized to keep the face looking less fatigued while maintaining a masculine appearance.
Results: Keep in mind that it takes 7-10 days for the neuromodulator to fully kick-in. Most people begin to notice a softening of the wrinkles in as little as two days.
Note: If you’re worried about looking “frozen,” don’t. In the hands of our skilled Nurse Injector you’ll have a refreshed, rested look without the expression lines but that doesn’t mean you won’t have any facial movement.
Treatment: Dermal Fillers
The Low-Down: We hear a lot of guys complain about looking tired even after a full night’s rest. That’s hardly surprising. As men age, they tend to lose volume in their tear-troughs (under-eyes). Restoring volume can be achieved using filing agents, to soften the appearance of work-related stress.
Results: The bonus in using dermal fillers is that the results are instant and can last 6-12 months!
Note: Don’t worry, our expert injector won’t make you look feminine, just rested and ready to face the board room!
You may, however, experience mild swelling after the treatment and there is always a risk for minor bruising. Be sure to speak with one of our filler experts about the do’s and dont's before your treatment to reduce the likeliness of bruising or swelling.
Concern: Lines on either side of your mouth
Treatment: Dermal fillers
The Low-Down: These pesky folds develop around the mouth as a result of a loss of collagen over time. Our expert Nurse Injector will add support to these folds in order to soften their appearance while maintaining a masculine appearance.
Results: Similarly to tear-trough fillers, the results are instant! There is little to now downtime and you can resume all normal activities immediately.
Note: Be sure to avoid alcohol a day or two before and stop aspirin (unless prescribed by your doctor) advil, motrin and aleve one week prior.
The Low-down: Many man (and women) have turned to Botox to help treat embarrassing excess sweating. Botox not only treats wrinkles but they also temporarily stop hyperhidrosis.
Here’s how it works. The neuromodulator is injected into the skin to safely block the nerve responsible for triggering the sweat glands.
Results: The treatment can last 3-5 months and begins to work 1-2 weeks after the treatment is performed. There is no downtime and you can resume all normal activities after the treatment.
Note: While the underarms are the most popular area injected, many men also choose to treat their scalp, palms and feet, keeping you looking cool as a cucumber.
