For a More Refined Appearance

You can look more awake and refreshed by relaxing the lines and wrinkles on the face that form as we age. BOTOX® is one of the safest aesthetic procedures you can have done, with the most predictable results. That’s because BOTOX® works quickly and can have dramatic effects, which have the potential to last 3-12 months. BOTOX® injections can take as little as fifteen minutes with minimal discomfort that most describe as quite tolerable.

  1. CONCERN: Lines & wrinkles in areas of expression including the eye area, between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and neck area.
  2. TREATMENT TIME: Most sessions are approximately 15 minutes, depending on the areas treated.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Fortunately, the cosmetic use of BOTOX® is completely safe when performed by an experienced medical provider. While it is most often used as a way to preserve and improve a youthful look, it can also be used in small doses to treat other specific conditions and concerns. These include:

– Improving your appearance by temporarily smoothing lines and wrinkles of the face
– Blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking)
– Strabismus (misaligned eyes)
– Chronic migraine

The effects associated with this treatment are expected to last about 3-12 months, depending on what you are treating.

How Does BOTOX® Work?

Wrinkles and fine lines are formed by repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows. These contractions cause the skin on your face to furrow and fold, which gradually results in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves.

What Areas Can BOTOX® Treat?

BOTOX® is a quick and effective way to achieve a natural-looking youthful face. While this treatment can be used almost everywhere on the face, some facial areas respond better than others. These areas include:

Upper Face:

– Frown lines (between eyebrows)
– Forehead lines
– Top of the nose (bunny lines)
– Eyebrows/hooded eyes
– Wrinkles around the eyes
– Under the eyes


– Smokers lines
– Gummy smile
– Lip borders (lip pop)
– Droopy nose

Lower Face:

– Corners of the mouth (frown smile)
– Chin (cobblestone chin)
– Jawline and neck
– Jaw angle/ Masseter muscle (slimming of the face)

Prejuvenation with BOTOX®

In addition to reducing the appearance of pesky fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® can be used as a preventative. Prejuvenation treatments not only boost your self-confidence, but they can also help you look as young as you feel by fending off the fine lines or wrinkles.

Preventive BOTOX® typically requires less product and fewer treatments than if you were tackling existing wrinkles. The idea is the less your facial muscles contract, the less the skin creases, forming fine lines that have the potential to become deep lines. With prejuvenation, you can stay ahead of the aging game instead of waiting until it becomes noticeable, where you’ll need rejuvenation treatments. That’s because instead of filling in wrinkles, preventative BOTOX® eases muscle tension to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place.

What Are the Benefits of Using BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is one of the most common facial rejuvenation procedures. It’s also a great tool for addressing other areas of the face and body. These include:

– Smoothing crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines
– Diminishing neck bands
– Improving the appearance of skin dimpling of the chin
– Reducing wrinkles on the face
– Lift the corners of the mouth
– Soften a square jawline
– Correct a gummy smile
– Treating hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

It’s easy to see why more and more men are now turning to this cosmetic procedure. Best of all, there’s virtually no downtime associated!

What You Can Expect From Your Session

Patients can conveniently schedule their treatment session into their lunch break, as Botox typically takes less than 20 minutes to perform, making it a great “lunchtime procedure.” Your SKIN FIVE specialist will discuss your concerns and desired results with you during your session. You can even resume normal activities immediately after your procedure.

Depending on your concerns and desired outcome, a series of injections will be placed in the appropriate areas. Patients should not expect wrinkles to completely disappear. Instead, they will relax which decreases their appearance. Deeper lines will become less visible while finer lines may be completely unnoticeable.

For those areas that are treated with the BOTOX® procedure, you should see results in at least 10-14 days. Over time, muscle activity will eventually return to normal as the BOTOX® wears off. To maintain the smoothing and decreased visibility of lines, expect to repeat the treatment every 3-6 months.

Who Is a Candidate for BOTOX®?

Any healthy adult, male or female, wanting a more youthful appearance is a candidate for BOTOX®. Some people should not have BOTOX® treatments. Please let your SKIN FIVE provider know if you struggle with any of the following:

– Existing weakness in the targeted muscles
– Ptosis (drooping eyelids)
– Deep facial scars
– Very thick facial skin
– Marked facial asymmetry
– Skin disorders around the planned injection sites

Before your first injection, we will go over your medical history with you. Please inform your SKIN FIVE provider of your medical history and all medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are currently taking before receiving treatments. These could have an impact on the way BOTOX® works in your body.
