What is BOTOX?
Bluegrass Aesthetics is proud to offer BOTOX Cosmetic to help men and women in Bowling Green, KY enjoy age-defying aesthetic results. A fast-acting injectable wrinkle relaxer, BOTOX softens and diminishes forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet around the eyes, and other signs of aging in the face. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily disengages the facial muscles used in creating expressions in the upper facial region. The wrinkles made from these facial expressions are known as “dynamic wrinkles” and with enough repetition, may remain visible even when the muscles are at rest. BOTOX Cosmetic treatments are FDA approved to temporarily soften the look of moderate to severe frown lines by blocking these facial expressions, giving the skin time to recover naturally. Our experienced team has helped countless patients throughout South Central Kentucky achieve the youthful-looking results they desire with this popular facial rejuvenation treatment.
"Cindy is absolutely phenomenal. I got botox injection to help relieve my migraines and she was amazing. The procedure took very little time and I had no pain during or after the procedure. She was extremely helpful with everything and very knowledgable. The office was beautiful and homie, so I didn't feel any stress sitting in a stiff doctor's office. I would recommend her to everyone and will be going back again."- J.M. / Google / May 22, 2018
Should I Get Botox?
BOTOX injections may be an ideal option for patients who prefer a nonsurgical approach to reducing lines and wrinkles in the upper face. It can also be used as a preventive anti-aging treatment for those who are not yet noticing the visible signs of aging. Men and women often receive BOTOX at our med spa to target:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow's feet around the eyes
- Parallel lines between the brows (known as "elevens")
If you have more significant or severe forehead creases or facial lines, an injectable filler or other option may be recommended. At Bluegrass Aesthetics, our expert team has been providing BOTOX to Bowling Green, KY patients for many years and can help you determine if this service is right for meeting your cosmetic goals.
How many BOTOX units/injections will I need?
The number of BOTOX injections provided will differ based on individual needs and the depth and severity of your wrinkles. Our team can recommend the appropriate number of BOTOX units according to your desired treatment results and whether you want to address the forehead, brow area, or Crow's feet. To keep up with your aesthetic outcomes, our experts might suggest receiving BOTOX services every few months at Bluegrass Aesthetics.
Can I combine BOTOX with other nonsurgical procedures?
BOTOX treatment typically pairs well with additional noninvasive solutions for patients who would like to target signs of aging. If you have more extensive and pronounced facial wrinkles and creases, our experts could suggest incorporating a filler for optimal outcomes. To further improve a younger-looking glow, we could perform additional complementary treatments, like facials or PRP with microneedling.
Are there comparable aesthetic injections?
BOTOX is a certain type of wrinkle relaxer that competes within a multitude of other comparable solutions, such as XEOMIN®, Jeuveau®, and Dysport®. All of these wrinkle-reducing options contain botulinum toxin type A; however, each one is created a little differently to target certain challenges.
What's the difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Even though wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX, are administered to decrease fine creases by temporarily freezing your muscle contractions, fillers are a separate collection of cosmetic solutions that add volume to the face. Fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking features and fill in static wrinkles. Our team can discuss if you may benefit from a dermal filler (such as JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
What to Expect with treatment
BOTOX treatments are carried out by a professional injector within one of our relaxing and private treatment rooms. Following the procedure, you may resume your usual schedule, but strenuous physical activities, such as exercise, should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to avoid touching your face to prevent the spreading of the solution to other areas. In many cases, the full effects of BOTOX are visible in about 5 – 7 days following treatment and typically last 3 – 4 months. Our knowledgeable team can advise you on when to schedule touch-up appointments at Bluegrass Aesthetics to maintain your results.
