Botox

Botox is the most well-known aesthetic procedure in the country, and it continues to grow in popularity. In use since the 1980s, Botox has been proven to be safe and effective at temporarily relaxing muscles that create unwanted lines and wrinkles on the face. VIDA Aesthetic Medicine injectors are highly skilled and experienced, so you’ll always enjoy natural-looking results. The skill and experience of the person injecting the Botox are just as important as the quality of the product being used. Trusting only a physician or highly skilled and experienced nurse injector with your Botox treatments is paramount to a successful, beautiful, long-lasting, and natural-looking result.

Injectors at VIDA are committed to providing tailored Botox treatments, customizing every injection based on your unique facial muscles and goals. You deserve to have only the best injectors taking care of you and your needs, as even slightly different injection positions and amounts can make a big difference. Botox demands knowledge, precision, and artistry to yield amazing results. The injector must consider differences in every patient’s face and muscle structure for a one of a kind treatment. There’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all Botox approach. At VIDA, Dr. Kim Thompson, Dr. Glen Jarosz, and Julie Miller, RN, put their years of knowledge and experience to use, so you have peace of mind knowing that you’re in good hands and that your treatments are tailored just for you.

Botox Treatment Details

Some patients are hesitant about Botox because they’re afraid of looking “frozen” or being unable to smile following the treatment. When Botox is injected by an experienced provider, the results will look completely organic. Botox has been used safely around the world for over thirty years and received FDA approval in 1989. Botox Cosmetic was FDA-approved in 2002 after years of safe use for medical purposes. It’s most common to inject Botox to treat wrinkles and lines associated with frowning or squinting, particularly between the brows (the “angry elevens”) or around the eyes (“crow’s feet”).

However, Botox can be used for much more than softening wrinkles. It’s also a very effective treatment for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and the prevention of chronic migraines. You can also use Botox as a temporary, non-invasive “lift” of the tail-end of the eyebrows. From achieving a subtle lift of the upper and lower face/neck to addressing chin dimpling and correcting down-turning at the corners of the mouth, many patients are pleasantly surprised at everything Botox can accomplish. Botox can even slim the jawline when it’s injected by a skilled professional.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the Botox procedure take?2020-02-05T15:53:10-08:00

Botox appointment times can vary based on injection sites and the treatment complexity, but the vast majority of patients require 30 minutes or less.

Is Botox the only option available?2020-02-05T15:54:03-08:00

Botox is by far the most popular neuromodulator, but VIDA also offers Dysport and Xeomin upon request. Your provider can discuss all your options at your complimentary consultation.

Is there any downtime with Botox?2020-02-05T15:53:06-08:00

There is no downtime with Botox treatments. However, as with any injection, there is always a slight chance of minor bruising and mild, temporary redness at the treatment site.

How many Botox treatments will I need?2020-02-05T15:53:14-08:00

A single treatment lasts, on average, three to four months. Consistent treatments are important for sustaining your results. It’s time for a new Botox treatment when you start to notice close to full muscle movement in the area treated with Botox. This usually occurs 3–5 months after treatment.

When will I see results from Botox?2020-02-05T15:53:44-08:00

Contrary to popular belief, results aren’t immediate. Many patients start to see results 3–5 days after their treatment, but in some cases, it can take up to 14 days. A follow-up appointment is scheduled two weeks after the treatment for first-time Botox patients to ensure the desired results have been achieved.
