To understand how incredible of a product BOTOX® Cosmetic is, first we must understand what causes many of our facial wrinkles. Muscles fold skin over and over while we make facial expressions, talk, eat, or simply look around. As we age, the skin does not have enough elastin and collagen to bounce back after folding, and a wrinkle forms even when the muscle is not in motion.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a protein that is placed under the skin in order to relax these muscles so they no longer fold the skin, creating creases. BOTOX® Cosmetic can even prevent wrinkles if started before there is a line. However, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections also work after wrinkles have appeared.

A proper BOTOX® Cosmetic injection treatment results in a very natural look and NOT a frozen appearance. More than 3.7 million men and women used BOTOX® Cosmetic injections last year alone. They understand that BOTOX® Cosmetic is a very safe way to look their best. To see some of Colorado Skin & Vein’s amazing BOTOX® Cosmetic results, visit our BOTOX® Cosmetic Before and After Gallery.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic, a prescription medication, is a purified protein that can temporarily decrease muscle contraction resulting in decreased facial lines. By alleviating the creasing of the skin, Botox can prevent wrinkles from ever forming! BOTOX® Cosmetic is best at treating dynamic facial lines caused by facial muscle activity such as:

  • Scowl lines between the brows
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines

What else can BOTOX® be used for?

  • Brow Lift: The downward pull of facial muscles can make the lateral eyebrows start to fall. This can be alleviated with just a few well-placed injections of BOTOX®.
  • Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis): BOTOX® can effectively shut down sweat production under the arms, on the palms of the hands, and soles of the feet. These effects can last up to six months.
  • Gummy Smile: Some patients are concerned that they have a “gummy smile” when the upper gums are significantly visible above the teeth. This can easily be corrected with BOTOX®.
  • Bunny Lines: Lines and folds on the lateral sides of the nose can be treated and prevented with a tiny amount of BOTOX® on either side of the nose.
  • Neck Bands: If you have significant vertical bands on the front of your neck, the muscles creating these bands can be relaxed with BOTOX®.
  • Clenching or Grinding of Teeth: BOTOX® can be used to weaken the muscle that controls the grinding of the teeth.

Is it safe?

YES! We have been using BOTOX® safely in patients with Cerebral Palsy and many other muscle contraction disorders for almost twenty years. The amount used for cosmetic purposes is often up to 20 times less than the amount used for pathological muscle contractions.

When should I start having BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments?

This depends on genetics and how well you protect your skin from environmental damage. You can start BOTOX® Cosmetic at just about any age, but most patients start in their late 20s to early 30s. The key is to start treatment before lines show up at rest. Even if you already have lines at rest, BOTOX® Cosmetic will help smooth out those lines and will keep them from getting deeper.

How many units of BOTOX® Cosmetic do I need?

This depends on several factors:

  • How many areas an individual would like treated
  • Each area usually requires between 15 to 30 units for women and 30 to 40 units for men
  • Muscle mass in that area and amount of correction desired
  • Most patients fall between 30-70 units
  • Also note: Botox can be mixed differently from office to office. We use a concentrated solution of 50 units/mL (this allows more precise placement of the protein and less swelling).

When will I see results?

Results may appear in a few days but may take up to two weeks for the full effect.

What is the difference between BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®?

Dysport® is another manufacturer brand of botulism toxin. It is like comparing Coke vs. Pepsi. XEOMIN® is another brand that recently came on the market.

What should I do before I come in?

Please try to avoid products including omega fatty acids (fish oil), vitamin E, flax seed, NSAIDS (Aleve®, Motrin®, Advil®), aspirin, and red wine before and after your treatment.

What will happen during your appointment?

One of our experienced registered nurses, Laura Carlsen, RN or Danielle Koontz, RN, will discuss your expectations and what areas you are interested in having treated. They will spend as long as needed until you are comfortable before your treatment. Immediately before your procedure, the treatment area will be cleaned with alcohol. A very fine needle (the same used by diabetics for their daily insulin treatments) will be used to administer the BOTOX®. Laura and Danielle are very gentle, and almost all patients report minimal, if any, pain. The total treatment time is only about 10 minutes.
