What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and also reduce the appearance of crows feet and forehead wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause them to occur. Aura’s experienced physician or nurse practitioner uses the latest techniques to administer Botox® Cosmetic safely and effectively. Treatment with Botox® Cosmetic is fast (a simple 10-minute procedure) and minimally invasive with no down time or recovery, allowing most patients to return immediately to work or their normal daily activities.

How Does Botox® Cosmetic Work?

Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium that works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed between your brows, on your forehead or crows feet. Botox® Cosmetic is injected directly into these muscles and works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. Within days, you’ll see a marked improvement that can last up to four months.

Who Is A Candidate For Botox® Cosmetic?

What Can I Expect During Botox® Treatment?

The most common areas treated with Botox® Cosmetic are the muscles between your brows, forehead and crows feet. Generally, each patient can expect the following:

  • Treatments are performed in the privacy and comfort of Aura Skin Spa, by a board certified physician or nurse practitioner.

  • No anesthesia is required, although we may choose to numb the area with a cold ice pack prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
  • The procedure takes no more than 10 minutes to perform.
  • Patients can immediately return to work or their normal daily activities.
  • Within days, you will start to see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines where the Botox® Cosmetic was administered.
  • Improvement with Botox® Cosmetic typically last up to four months. Results vary with each patient.

Is Botox® Cosmetic Painful?

How Long Does Botox® Cosmetic Last?

After treatment with Botox® Cosmetic results are typically seen in days and last up to four months. Results vary with each patient.

If patients choose to not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, crows feet or forehead wrinkles will gradually look like they did before treatment.

Botox® Consultation and Appointment Experience

Our front desk coordinator is available to answer any questions you may have, and we aim to get you in for your appointment as soon as possible. We prefer to combine the consultation and treatment in one visit and book 30 minutes for this appointment.

 

When you come in for your appointment, we ask that you arrive a few minutes early to fill out some paperwork, including a New Patient Demographic Form and your Botox® Cosmetic consent form. We also ask that you sign up for Alle, Allergan's rewards program, to receive a $50 discount. Our nurse practitioner or physician will then provide a consultation and recommend the appropriate amount of units for your treatment.

Botox® Appointment Experience and Maintenance

During the appointment, our experienced nurse practitioner or physician will administer the Botox® Cosmetic injections in the recommended areas. There is no recovery time, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after your appointment. We do ask that you avoid manipulating the treated area or engaging in strenuous physical activity for 24 hours to minimize bruising.

 

To maintain optimal results, we recommend returning for Botox® Cosmetic treatments every 3-4 months. Additionally, we offer a variety of laser treatments for skin resurfacing and skin tightening that work synergistically with Botox® Cosmetic to achieve optimal results. Some examples of these treatments include Morpheus8 and Fraxel Skin Resurfacing.
