As the skin ages, many men and women develop wrinkles, fine lines, and folds around the eyes and forehead.

Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Derived from the botulinum toxin, Botox is one of the most popular and extensively studied neuromodulators in the world. Indicated for moderate to severe crow’s feet around the eyes, fine lines in the forehead, and frown lines between the eyebrows, Botox is injected with a fine needle in small doses that are strategically placed around treated areas.

When Dr. Jen administers Botox, she makes the process quick and painless. Most patients are able to return to normal activities immediately afterward.

How Does Botox work?

Once Botox is injected into the facial muscles, the botulinum toxin blocks nerve signals from causing the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles and lines. This creates an appearance that is refreshed and relaxed, reversing visible signs of aging that can make you appear constantly tired or worn out.

At Ultimate Solutions, Dr. Jen has extensive experience in administering Botox and can create an appearance that reflects a younger, more natural-looking facial profile. Because Dr. Jen is an expert at Botox, you never appear frozen, fake, or exaggerated.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Men and women who are interested in subtle, natural-looking skin rejuvenation without the risk or downtime of surgery may be candidates for Botox. Dr. Jen helps you to achieve your desired aesthetic.

During your consultation, Dr. Jen evaluates factors such as your health, medical history, aesthetic goals, and treatment expectations to determine if this neuromodulator is right for you.

Are there any side effects?

As with all injectable treatments, slight redness, swelling, and bruising is common, but should subside in a day or two. It is advised to avoid rubbing or massaging treated areas because the botulinum toxin can spread and potentially cause facial weakness or drooping.

Results may vary, and multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. After Botox, you notice smoother, younger-looking skin for up to a year.

Using Botox, Dr. Jen can safely and effectively reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles without disrupting your normal activities. Call or request an appointment online with Dr. Jen at Ultimate Solutions Med Spa today.
