What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medicine made from a purified form of the botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes muscle contractions.

The team at Dermatology and Aesthetics Center of Utah can inject precise amounts of Botox into the muscles in your upper face to treat deep-set wrinkles and creases:

  • Between the brow line (frown lines)
  • Around your eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Along your forehead

As the muscles begin to relax, your skin becomes smoother, and wrinkles, lines, and creases become less noticeable.

Why should I consider Botox therapy?

Botox therapy is an effective way to address wrinkles and lines that prematurely age you. The team at Dermatology and Aesthetics Center of Utah can determine if you’re a candidate for Botox based on your skin health and your expectations for treatment.

They recommend scheduling a skin consultation if you’re unhappy with your appearance because of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet but aren’t ready for cosmetic surgery.

The team also offers Dysport®, an injectable medication that contains the same active ingredient as Botox to address facial lines and creases.

They can determine which treatment can produce the results you desire and design your treatment to ensure that your results look natural.

What can I expect during Botox injections?

During your appointment, the team at Dermatology and Aesthetics Center of Utah helps you get comfortable. 

Following a custom treatment plan, your provider injects Botox or Dysport into specific locations around your face. The number of injections you need depends on the severity of your wrinkles. The team can use a topical medication to numb the areas of injection to prevent discomfort.

You can go back to your usual activities immediately after treatment without the need for downtime.

How long does it take to see the results of Botox?

Many people can see a difference in their appearance soon after treatment, but it can take up to 48 hours to see the full benefits of Botox.

Your results can last up to four months before you need maintenance injections to retain your younger-looking, smoother skin.
