BOTOX® Cosmetic in Reno, NV
There are only so many creams and moisturizers that you can apply to your face before the natural signs of aging start to make their unpleasant mark. Wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines are the result of repeated facial expressions, and once these lines have developed, they can age your appearance by contributing to a worn-out and tired look. This is why nearly 11 million patients have received BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to deep wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. It is made of botulinum toxin type A, which works by inhibiting the movement of the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines in the upper portion of the face.Schedule a Consultation
What Does My BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Include?
Your BOTOX® Cosmetic Consultation
During your BOTOX® Cosmetic consultation, one of our highly trained nurse injectors will determine if you are the right candidate. She will assess the areas where the injections should be placed and inform you of the extent of corrections required.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
During your treatment, a thin needle will be used to inject the substance into the tissues around your eyes and forehead, where it will block the nerve signals to the muscle in which it was injected.
Since the muscles are unable to contract, wrinkles and fine lines will temporarily smooth out.
It is common for patients to combine their BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment with other facial rejuvenation methods.
Some treatments that can be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic include:
- JUVÉDERM® injections, to add volume to aging facial skin by restoring and attracting hydration
- Micropeel treatment, to remove the thin layer of the top skin and restore healthier-looking tone and texture
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injections, to treat age-related volume loss and wrinkles
- KYBELLA® injections, to reduce fat beneath the chin
What Are Your Concerns About BOTOX® Cosmetic Surgery?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation method, so there is little to no downtime after the treatment.
Most patients resume normal activities immediately; however, it is important to not rub or massage the treated areas after the injection as it can cause the substance to migrate to other areas of the face. You should also avoid vigorous physical activity during the first 24 hours or until the results are fully developed.
Since there are no incisions associated with this treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments will not leave any scars. A thin needle is used to inject the substance into the skin, which leaves no lasting mark.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is priced per unit. Therefore, the cost of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will depend on the extent of corrections needed and the areas being treated.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. These injections are usually well-tolerated; however, you may experience minor discomfort in the days following your treatment.
