Every time you take a look at yourself in a mirror, are you troubled by wrinkles or fine lines on your forehead and in the skin near your eyes? Frequently called dynamic lines and wrinkles, these skin concerns occur due to repetitive expressions, like squinting, frowning, and smiling. As women and men age, these wrinkles and lines ultimately remain and can make them look worn down. With BOTOX Cosmetic, we can often temporarily stop the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, Crow's feet, and forehead creases. BOTOX Cosmetic is made from a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A. It functions to temporarily disengage the muscles that create those expressions, allowing the overlying skin to smooth itself over time. At Ciao Bella Medical Spa, Dr. Jon Ricks and his experienced team are proud to offer BOTOX as a nonsurgical option to help men and women obtain smoother, renewed, and more youthful-looking skin. Our team invites you to call our facility in Frisco, TX, for more information about the benefits of BOTOX!
"On my birthday, I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, look how smooth my forehead looks now! All thanks to Trish and Kayla, the fabulous “mother daughter duo” at Ciao Bella med spa. I knew after my very first consultation with Trish that I was in caring and capable hands. I explained to her that I wanted to soften the appearance of my laugh lines, crows feet and forehead wrinkles. I also explained to her that my skin is extremely sensitive and hormonal. Trish recommended the CleatLift and we decided together to take a very conservative approach with my skin.I had sessions with both Trish and Kayla and they were both so sweet. After a few sessions I noticed that my skin was more radiant and glowing. My jawline is tighter and my melasma is less noticeable. Since I was so happy with the results of the ClearLift, I decided to go in for Botox injections. I’ve had Botox in the past but I was still anxious. Again Trish was so patient with me. She took her time and explained the location and amount of each injection. She wanted to take a conservative approach, giving me less toxin at first resulting in a more natural look. Plus I didn’t feel a thing! It was such a pleasant experience and I am thrilled with the results. I’m looking forward to my follow up visit next week. Thank you"- N.L. / Google / Jul 03, 2022
Should I Get BOTOX?
Women and men who prefer a minimally invasive solution to reduce frown lines, forehead creases, or Crow's feet may be excellent candidates for BOTOX at Ciao Bella Medical Spa. It can be a great aesthetic option if you have noticeable glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that result in a withered, angry, or aging look. BOTOX injections have grown in favor among younger individuals, too. Though women and men in their 20s and 30s might not yet exhibit the early signs of aging, BOTOX can be administered as a preventive treatment to stave off the natural process of aging by temporarily reducing or stalling the proliferation of age-related wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Throughout your initial consultation at Ciao Bella Medical Spa, Dr. Ricks or a member of his team will provide a facial examination to determine which areas would benefit from treatment. Given that BOTOX is a fast, in-office treatment, your injections can commonly be administered during the same appointment. The formulation will be injected into the specified areas of your forehead or face using a small needle. BOTOX treatment takes approximately a few minutes to complete, and many patients report only mild discomfort (such as a pinprick or pinching sensation). At the end of your appointment, you are free to leave our Frisco, TX office and get right back to your day.
Expected BOTOX Results
You might have some mild swelling, redness, and bruising in the treatment areas, but this should not last long. Your technician may recommend that you refrain from strenuous physical activity and keep yourself from touching the treatment sites for the next day or so. Within 48 – 72 hours, you will probably start to experience your smooth, firmer results. BOTOX can provide up to four months of youthful, natural-looking improvements for most women and men. Dr. Ricks will suggest how often you should receive treatments as part of a customized plan to help you meet your desired results. Our staff can discuss the projected cost of BOTOX services, but the price tends to vary depending on the number of units used.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many units/injections will I likely need?
The number of BOTOX treatments administered will differ based on individual needs and the depth and severity of your lines and wrinkles. Dr. Ricks can suggest the ideal quantity of BOTOX injections based on your targeted treatment goals and whether you wish to treat the forehead, Crow's feet, or between the eyes. To keep up with your aesthetic outcomes, our team could recommend receiving BOTOX every few months at Ciao Bella Medical Spa.
Can BOTOX be paired with additional nonsurgical procedures?
BOTOX injections pair well with additional cosmetic options at Ciao Bella Medical Spa for individuals who wish to target aging concerns. If you notice more extensive and pronounced facial wrinkles and lines, our experts might recommend administering a filler for your smoothest outcomes. To further enhance a youthful appearance, Dr. Ricks can provide additional complementary treatments, such as laser aesthetic treatments or RF skin treatments.
Is there a comparable cosmetic injectable option?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a specific formulation of wrinkle reducer that excels among a market of other effective solutions, including XEOMIN®, Jeuveau™, and Dysport®. These wrinkle relaxer treatments are made from type A botulinum toxin; however, each one is formulated uniquely to target specific concerns.
What's the difference between fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Although wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX, are administered to diminish fine creases by temporarily blocking your muscle movements, dermal fillers are a different category of aesthetic injections that add facial volume. Dermal fillers are designed to volumize gaunt-looking features and fill in static wrinkles.
