Botox Injections

Botox is actually the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which is known to inhibit muscle movement, and that can prevent wrinkles from developing or worsening. Botox is a medical treatment that can be used to help relax facial muscles. This makes lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, less obvious. Botox can temporarily alter your appearance without the need for surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.

IS IT DANGEROUS?

No. It is a purified form of the protein and is injected in very small amounts, so there is virtually no risk.

WHAT WERE THE COMMON SIDE EFFECTS SEEN IN CLINICAL STUDIES?

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; a headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please see the Important Safety Information including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide, and talk to your specialist.

HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

WILL BOTOX® COSMETIC MAKE ME LOOK LIKE I’VE HAD WORK DONE?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.

DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT HURT?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

WILL I SWELL OR BRUISE POST INJECTION?

Every patient is different, so it’s hard to say. Some patients might experience both, but others experience neither. When the swelling or bruising presents varies too, but you will leave the office with post care instructions and how to manage both. For patients new to injections, we suggest to avoid scheduling your treatment immediately prior to an important event where you’ll have your picture taken. It also helps to take anti-inflammatory before or after your treatment

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.

HOW MANY UNITS OF NEUROMODULATOR (BOTOX) WILL I NEED?

Since this product’s popularity has grown, some women in their 20’s start getting injections as a preventative anti-aging approach. They only need 20 units for a noticeable result. Women just starting neuromodulator at age 50 to 60-years-old could need 30-40 units. We will discuss this in more detail during your initial consultation, which is always complimentary.

IS THERE ANY PRE-TREATMENT?

Avoid taking any medications with aspirin, ibuprofen, and/or Vitamin E in them for one week prior to treatment. This will decrease the bruising at the injection site.

IS THERE ANY POST-TREATMENT?

You will need to keep your head up for four hours after treatment and not workout for 24 hours, but that is it.

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO COME IN TO MAINTAIN?

We take a conservative approach with anyone new to injections. You can always add more but you can’t take away. To get a natural result, we start with a minimal amount to see results within two weeks. If more is needed, she administers more at the follow up visit. In general, nueromodulators (like Botox) are done every three to four months. As a rule, the more regular you are with your maintenance, the less units you will need on each visit.

WHAT IS DYSPORT? (ABOBOTULINUMTOXINA)

Since the FDA’s approval of Botox for cosmetic use in 2002, it has become one of the most well-known and widely used injectables for treating forehead lines, fine lines and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Following not far behind it is Dysport, which entered the U.S. market in 2009, but was used in Europe as an alternative to Botox for more than a decade before that. 

For years, these two options were seen as the only truly effective wrinkle treatments, but today, there are a wider variety of options for fine lines and wrinkles. Knowing which one better for you comes down to understanding what each one does, how they’re different and what results you are looking for. 

Being different than fillers, Dysport acts by paralyzing muscles movement, where fillers fill wrinkles with substance. 

Original use was for migraine headache relief. Now also used to smooth wrinkles and lines. 

Natural-looking. Fast-acting. Long-lasting. 

Don’t let your frown lines between your eyebrows define you. For adults who want a natural look, Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, long-lasting prescription injection proven to help smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows-without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. 

Our Expert level injector at Simply Bliss will ensure you the natural, beautiful, younger self look that you once knew.
