Botox Denver

Your
Ageless Skin

Eyebrow furrows, forehead wrinkles, and smile lines around the eyes are no laughing matter. Known as dynamic wrinkles, these expression lines can be eliminated with Botox injections.

It takes just minutes to perform, and Rejuvenate patients love that there is no downtime. With Botox, you can feel carefree knowing that your skin looks ageless for months at a time.

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable drug used to treat facial lines and wrinkles. Botox injections are the most-performed nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the United States.

How does Botox work?

Botox contains a safe, pure form of botulinum toxin. Once injected into facial muscles that control making facial expressions, Botox temporarily blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscle to contract. By keeping the muscle relaxed, the skin above the muscle remains relaxed as well. This smooths out wrinkles and fine lines that are making you look older than you would like.

Diminish wrinkles with the help of our experienced diamond-level injectors

Your Botox treatment is a quick procedure that involves little-to-no pain. Patients are often surprised at how fast and painless the procedure is. At Rejuvenate, our goal is to deliver the very best Botox Denver can offer; therefore, our Botox specialists are no ordinary cosmetic injectors. Our team is properly licensed and trained. All wrinkle injections are administered by nurse injectors (RNs) or physician assistants (PAs), under the leadership of elite board-certified Denver plastic surgeons, Dr. Vath and Dr. Wolfe.

Benefits of Botox injections

Botox is safe, convenient, and much more affordable than invasive surgery. The treatments are quick, comfortable, and require little to no downtime. Botox is especially effective in treating:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the brows

Botox is also an FDA-approved hyperhidrosis treatment that is an excellent remedy to stop excessive perspiration. It works by disabling nerves that control sweat glands. So if you are embarrassed by excessive sweating, don’t hesitate to see our Denver Botox experts at Rejuvenate for a fast and effective sweat reduction treatment.

Other medical applications for Botox include treatments for chronic migraine, “lazy eye,” and neck and back pain caused by muscle spasms.

How do wrinkles form?

With age, collagen and elastin loss make the skin thinner and weaker — particularly after age 30. Your complexion becomes more likely to form wrinkles with each facial expression you make. Expression lines may start out as fine wrinkles, but over time they develop into static wrinkles. As you get older, fine lines become deeply etched in the skin and thus, more resistant to treatment. Botox staves off the aging process by preventing expression lines from forming in the first place.

Are you a
good candidate for Botox injections?

If you are in good general health, you should be good to go! Exceptions may be candidates with bleeding or breathing disorders, or those who have difficulty swallowing. Patients with any type of active infection will need to postpone Botox treatment. You’re a good candidate if you have:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines between the brows (11 lines)

Botox is best for dynamic wrinkles that are not permanently etched into the skin. Most people start to notice dynamic wrinkles forming in the following areas starting in their late 20s or 30s.

Are Botox injections safe?

Yes, but only when performed by a trained, experienced injector using FDA-approved Botox and materials. Botox injections are considered a “technique sensitive treatment,” meaning the skill of your injector is of vital importance in maximizing safety and achieving desired results.

Preparing for
your Botox injections

To be cleared for Botox injections, you will need to provide your full medical history.

Let your provider know if you have received previous Botox injections. Your provider may ask you to suspend the use of any supplement or medication, such as aspirin, that may elevate bleeding for a period before and after your treatment.

Your
Botox injection procedure

Your procedure will be performed in your provider’s office or treatment room.

After numbing your face to make you comfortable, your injector will use a thin needle to place the appropriate amount of Botox into your targeted areas. Multiple areas can be treated in one session, and treatments seldom take longer than ten minutes.

Recovery and Aftercare

Make sure you have arranged for someone to drive you home. Remember not to scratch your treatment areas and take it a little bit easy until you know how the medication affects you. Otherwise, there are no restrictions!

Your
Results

With Botox injections you’ll notice a reduction of wrinkles as your facial muscles start to relax.

Your face will not look stiff or “frozen” if your treatment was administered by a trained, licensed, and experienced provider. Patient “satisfaction ratings” for Botox injections rank at or near the top of all cosmetic procedures.

How long does Botox last?

Botox results last for several months (typically 3-4 months) before gradually fading. Each person is different, but most patients can expect approximately three months of wrinkle correction. Once you notice the wrinkles returning, that is a good time to come in for your next Botox appointment. There is no harm from discontinuing Botox, however the more consistent you keep up with Botox treatments, the more long-lasting the results.

How fast does
Botox start to work?

Unlike dermal fillers, muscle relaxant injections like Botox take time to activate in the treated facial muscles. This process takes several days. Early Botox results start to become visible in just 3 to 5 days. You’ll notice wrinkles becoming smoother and less obvious. The results will become even better with each passing day.

It takes about 10 to 14 days for the full effects of Botox to occur. At this point, you’ll be thrilled to see that the treated fine lines and wrinkles have faded, leaving you looking more youthful and energized. Most patients are fully satisfied with the results at the two-week mark. If for any reason you need additional units of Botox to achieve the desired result, you are welcome to come in for a touch-up after two weeks.

BOTOX FAQs

Typically, you’ll feel only a slight “pinch.” Your injector can also apply ice or a numbing agent to your face before or after your treatment.

That will depend on the size and location of your treatment and the depth of the lines and wrinkles you want to treat.

All such procedures carry risks, in this case including but not limited to:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Allergic reaction
  • Nerve damage

Very rarely, complications have resulted from Botox spreading to unintended areas of the face or body. Notify your provider immediately if you experience breathing difficulty, loss of bladder control, or severe muscle weakness.

While you will need periodic Botox injections to maintain your results, cessation of Botox treatment will not make you look older than you would if you had never had Botox injections.

Botox is better at treating lines that move during facial expression. Dermal fillers are often more effective at treating stationary lines.

While there is no hard and fast rule, most people may benefit from facial Botox treatment beginning in their late 20s to early 30s.

Not anymore. Men are now discovering the benefits of Botox. Maintaining a youthful and vibrant appearance is important to men, too!

If your treatment is performed for purely cosmetic reasons, your insurance will likely not cover the costs.

Costs will vary, depending on the reasons, number, and locations of your injections. Discuss costs with your provider before your treatment.
