A Leading Treatment
If you’re interested in reducing the signs of aging in your face, you may be considering Botox®. Since 2002, Botox has been one of the leading aesthetic treatments to help people look younger by reducing visible lines and wrinkles. At Ciao Bella Med Spa in Frisco, TX, Botox is one of the leading treatments for reducing wrinkles and keeping you looking and feeling beautiful.
Relax Away the Years
Botox is a wrinkle relaxer injection. It’s not an anti-aging drug or a dietary supplement, or even a new idea; it’s simply an FDA-approved cosmetic medical procedure that uses Botulinum Toxin A to temporarily smooth out wrinkles. As it works by paralyzing overactive muscles under your skin without affecting any other parts of your body, Botox is safe and effective for all skin types and ages. At Ciao Bella Med Spa, we offer our patients Botox, as well as other neuromodulators like Dysport® and XEOMIN®. Each of these serums has minor differences in duration and effect. During your consultation for Botox Frisco expert injectors, at Ciao Bella Med Spa, will review your skin and your goals to help establish a unique beauty plan that ensures the right neuromodulator for each injection.
Refreshed Appearance Without Surgery
Botox is a simple treatment that lifts and smooths wrinkles caused by aging. It works by blocking nerve impulses to muscles under your skin. In some areas of your face, Botox can also relax overactive muscles that cause wrinkles when they contract or tighten. For example, Botox helps reduce crow’s feet around your eyes and frown lines between your eyebrows.
Be Ready to Revitalize
There are many people who have wrinkles that cause them to feel self-conscious about their appearance. If you’re one of these people, you may be a candidate for Botox. The best candidates for Botox include those who are healthy and between the ages of 20 and 65 years old with moderate to severe frown lines between their eyebrows or crow’s feet at least 4mm deep. In addition, candidates who have an allergy to botulinum toxin A, neurological disorders, and/or are pregnant or breastfeeding are not ideal candidates. During your consultation at Ciao Bella Med Spa, our expert injectors will review your skin and medical history and determine if Botox or another procedure would best address your concerns.
Effective, Easy Wrinkle Relief
The procedure for Botox is simple. During your appointment, our expert injectors will treat you with small amounts of Botox to release wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes and mouth. This is a very quick process and doesn’t require any downtime after treatment. It’s usually enough to address moderate issues like crow’s feet around your eyes or vertical lines on your forehead.
Bo and Go
For most Frisco Botox patients, recovery is fairly simple and straightforward. While you may still feel a little uncomfortable for a few days following your treatment, there are steps you can take to help mitigate any long-term discomfort or side effects, and our expert injectors will provide you with those tips during your appointment. Be sure to follow all of your post-procedure instructions carefully!
A Vacation from Wrinkles
Botox results generally last around three to four months. As with other injectables, results may vary from person to person. You should always speak with your expert injector at Ciao Bella about how long Botox will last for you and what you can do to extend your results. The best way to increase the effectiveness of your Botox injections is by not sweating excessively or using harsh cleansers on your face before and after treatment.

Most people should avoid aspirin and any blood-thinning medications within 24 hours of Botox treatment. Medications that include ibuprofen (Advil), acetaminophen (Tylenol) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) are generally safe to take after Botox. It’s also important to avoid moisturizers or other topical treatments on your face or neck prior to treatment.
There are alternatives to Botox out there. Non-surgical options include injectable fillers like Restylane and Juvederm or laser skin resurfacing. Our aesthetic specialists will review your condition and help you find the right treatment for your needs.
The number of Botox injections you need and how long you should wait between injections depends on your specific needs. Some patients do well with a series of treatments; others will opt for a one-time injection to help remedy their problem areas. For example, if you have frown lines but also crow’s feet near your eyes—one treatment can suffice to combat both issues. The best way to determine how many Botox injections you need is by visiting our expert injectors at Ciao Bella. We'll help you develop a personalized plan to treat your wrinkles and keep you looking fresh and youthful for years to come!
Botox normally sets in with full relaxation effects to the muscle within two weeks post injection. At the two week mark, Ciao Bella Med Spa will set an appointment for a facial analysis to assess if more Botox units are required for desired results.
Botox is used to paralyze the muscle in order to reduce the effects of wrinkling on the skin. Once the Botox has set in, your ability to crease/wrinkle your skin with facial expressions will decrease based upon the amount of botox injected. Two weeks after your injection during your facial analysis, Ciao Bellas injection specialist will review your results and recommend how to approach any additional concerns about your skin so you may achieve the full results that you are looking for. This may include other modalities such as laser resurfacing and medical grade skin care products.
Botox is an elective cosmetic procedure, and insurance will not cover it.
