WHAT IS BOTOX?

BOTOX is the most popular product in the world of esthetics. Even if you're new to our industry, you've likely heard of it and wondered if it will work for you. Most commonly, it is used to smooth frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines. We also use BOTOX on the lower face and neck to reduce the appearance of neck bands, jaw muscles, and lip lines.


BOTOX is an injectable prescription medication that works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscle. It temporarily relaxes the muscle in the treatment area, resulting in noticeable smoothing and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. It is different from dermal filler, which replenishes volume, but the two can be used in conjunction.

WHAT AREAS CAN YOU TREAT WITH BOTOX?

BOTOX is most commonly used in the upper face to treat frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. But we also use it in the lower face to smooth lip lines, necklines, and gummy smiles. As one of the safest, most effective, and most studied injectables on the market, BOTOX is considered the gold standard for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also for preventing them from forming in the first place. BOTOX is also used in many other ways, including the treatment of temporomandibular jaw dysfunction (TMJ), migraines, and excessive sweating.


WHAT TO EXPECT AT A BOTOX APPOINTMENT

Like many other injectable cosmetic treatments, BOTOX is a quick, non-surgical procedure that does not require anesthesia or surgery. At your first appointment, you will meet with a certified cosmetic nurse injector or doctor to discuss your goals and concerns. Together you will come up with an individualized treatment plan that is as unique as you. The treatment site will be cleaned, and the nurse or doctor will inject the BOTOX. Typically the BOTOX appointment takes only 15 minutes, and it is not considered to be painful.


BOTOX ON THE UPPER FACE/LOWER FACE/NECK

Most patients first become interested in BOTOX when they begin to notice the first signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles around the forehead, brows, and eyes. BOTOX works to relax the muscles that can cause wrinkles to form, and it is also very effective at preventing these lines in the first place. Your BOTOX treatment plan will depend on your own goals and concerns, as well as your unique facial structure. Dr. Rice and our nurses have an in-depth understanding of facial anatomy and the risks and benefits of each of the services and medications we provide, and they will work with you to achieve the best possible results.

BOTOX FOR MIGRAINES, EXCESSIVE SWEATING AND TMJ

As one of the safest and most effective injectables on the market, BOTOX has many medical benefits. BOTOX is FDA-approved for treating migraines, offering patients much-needed relief from pain. It can also treat overactive sweat glands in the underarms, feet, palms, and face for those who suffer from excessive sweating. For TMJ sufferers, BOTOX can be used in the muscles of the jaw to relieve jaw-clenching and teeth-grinding.

WHO MAKES A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX?

Botox is an ideal treatment for you if you have concerns with any of the following:

  • Glabellar Lines
  • Forehead Lines
  • Upper Lip Lines
  • Chin Dimpling
  • Nasal Lines
  • Neck Bands


As with most injectables, we find that the "Goldilocks Approach" is your best bet. We aim for not too much, not too little, but the dose that is "just right" for you, allowing us to treat you to what we call "full correction." Our patients like this approach because a full dose of BOTOX lasts longer and looks better.

WILL BOTOX MAKE ME LOOK “OVERDONE”?

Most people associate friends or celebrities who've had too much dermal filler with BOTOX. They are not the same thing! What you're noticing on that gal with the big cheeks or huge lips is poorly injected dermal filler. Nobody in their right mind would ever "overdo it" with their BOTOX because they wouldn't be able to move their face. What's important to keep in mind is that BOTOX is a prescription medication. The best way to guarantee a great result is through proper dosing. We pride ourselves in offering our patients a natural-looking, effective treatment of BOTOX.


WHAT IS “BABY BOTOX”?

Baby Botox is essentially a regular Botox treatment, but with smaller doses of product. The downside to lower doses does mean the results will not last as long. However, we like to make sure our patients are fully informed when discussing their treatment plans. We don’t recommend skimping on your BOTOX dose, as we believe you can still achieve natural-looking results without undertreating. Choosing and sticking with an informed injector is key to achieving the best long-term results. We love to build long-lasting relationships with our patients so that we can help you live most confidently.

IS BOTOX SAFE?

BOTOX is one of the oldest and most extensively used medications on the market and has been proven safe time and time again. Due to the nature of BOTOX, because it is so precise and accurate, many patients have come to rely on it for years to ensure a wrinkle and frown line-free appearance. 


BOTOX is a botulinum toxin product. BOTOX treatments may not be right for you if you have had an allergic reaction to other botulinum toxin products such as Myobloc, Dysport, or Xeomin, or if you have a skin infection at the desired injection site. At every appointment, we will discuss your medical history and any concerns you may have to ensure that you are getting the safest and most effective treatment each time.

DOES BOTOX HURT?

No injectable is entirely pain-free, but BOTOX is about as painless as it gets when it comes to injectables. First, we use a tiny needle (6mm). Second, we ice the injection sites so you'll barely feel a thing. Additionally, the appointment is so quick it will be over before you know it!



SIDE EFFECTS OF BOTOX AND BOTOX AFTERCARE

The recovery period for BOTOX varies from patient to patient. Generally, most patients return to their daily activities with no real recovery period at all. While rare, the side effects are very minor and may include discomfort or pain at the injection site, headache, or eye problems.

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?

Some patients notice a difference in as little as one to two days, with results lasting as long as four months in some cases. Upon choosing BOTOX as your treatment method for lines and wrinkles, you can discuss an appointment schedule to ensure that your results remain strong and healthy over time. On average, we recommend you schedule your BOTOX treatments every three months to avoid returning to your baseline, but this will be something your doctor or nurse will discuss with you, as results do vary from patient to patient. 


PROS & CONS OF BOTOX

Pros:

  • BOTOX is non-invasive and non-surgical, resulting in little to no downtime.
  • BOTOX is safe and effective and is considered the gold standard for treating and smoothing moderate to severe lines and wrinkles caused by muscle movement.
  • The procedure is quick and practically painless.
  • Results can and should be natural -- choosing an experienced and knowledgable injector is critical!


Cons:

  • Some patients experience mild, temporary bruising at the injection site.
  • Results last for up to four months, but you’ll need to schedule regular treatments to maintain them. 
  • Because BOTOX is widely available, patients may be tempted to price shop and seek treatment from less-skilled providers. It is essential to find a trained medical professional and develop a thoughtful treatment plan. A skilled injector will be knowledgeable in facial anatomy and structure and the correct dosage and placement to achieve your individual goals and minimize risk. It also ensures the product you are receiving is pure and approved for use in humans.
  • BOTOX is not suitable for pregnant women.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT ESTHETICS CENTER

My whole life I have always hated my profile. When I put on weight my neck was one of the first places that my fat would land. It was so depressing and impacted my whole life.... my hairstyle, the clothes I wore, how I talked to people. I hated pictures of myself - which was brutal belonging to a family who loves their cameras! I recently retired and thought I would do something about it. You can see from the before and after pics that Dr Rice literally worked a miracle. I honestly had no idea it could look this good! I feel like a new person! The procedure was pain free. I mean it... pain free. The recovery was super easy for me and shockingly fast! My only regret is that I didn't do this ten years sooner. I'm not an overly vain person. I struggled with spending this much money on myself. But looking back, I so strongly believe that this was worth every penny. Every. Single. Penny. If you're like me and feel there's something that holds you back from being the real you, make an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Rice. He is the nicest, most patient doctor - along with every single person there... From Daniel at reception, Tammy who assists the doctor, and the lovely ladies who work in the skin clinic. They are kind and encouraging. You'll feel like part of the family.
