What is botox?
Botox is a muscle relaxant agent used to reduce and eliminate facial lines and wrinkles. The injection of Botox is both a science and an art, where only experienced professionals can achieve the finest results. We are located in the heart of Colorado Springs and combine years of experience in providing advanced Botox treatments.
Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by repetitive facial expressions, such as grimacing, squinting and smiling. These repetitive movements cause our faces to repeatedly contract. As we age, the elasticity in our skin decreases. This results in lines and wrinkles appearing on our faces, even at rest start to appear. For both men and women, the typical areas where lines and wrinkles appear first are worry lines across the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows and Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes.
Botox is used to temporarily relax the facial muscles responsible for these repetitive contractions. Botox reduces the activity in the muscles, which prevents the skin from wrinkling and creasing. The result of Botox is a smoothing aspect. Botox, when administered correctly, does not paralyze the facial muscles or keep patients from expressing themselves. Botox simply softens and rebalances facial movements that have become habitual and repetitive over the years. This results in a more youthful, relaxed and vibrant appearance (individual results may vary).
As well as being very effective at reversing the signs of aging, Botox can also be used as a preventative measure. From the mid-twenties onwards, Botox can be used to proactively prevent lines and wrinkles from becoming deeper and more visible, or in some cases from ever appearing at all (individual results may vary).

What are the benefits of botox?
what preparation is needed for botox?
To lessen the possibility of bruising after Botox, 10-12 days prior to receiving injectable treatments we recommend avoiding aspirin, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3, high doses of Vitamin E, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories e.g. Aleve, Motrin, Advil and Ibuprofen etc.
If you take aspirin for medical purposes, please continue use. If you have recently suffered from facial cold sores, please notify your aesthetic injector prior to receiving injections, and follow our recommended treatment plan.
How is Botox administered?
The treatment begins with collectively mapping out your customized treatment plan, reviewing post-care and answering all your questions and concerns. The injection process takes approximately 15-30 minutes and involves a series of small injections using a very fine needle into the muscle of the preferred treatment areas. Discomfort is usually minimal and very brief.
What can I anticipate after treatment?
There is very little, if any downtime or recovery needed. Refrain from exercise after Botox for at least four hours, or any strenuous activity that can cause a sweat. Additionally, for four hours after treatment, avoid lying completely flat, or engaging in activities where your head is below your heart.
Do not rub or massage the treated areas so that the Botox can remain undisturbed. Botox injections, just like any other injection, can cause some bruising and swelling. We have some special techniques that we use to minimize the swelling and bruising associated with Botox injections. However, if bruising and swelling occur it will subside and fade in a few days. Some mild redness and tingling is normal after the procedure and should dissipate after a few hours.
Makeup can be applied 15 minutes after treatment. If you experience any mild aching at the site of injection after the procedure, this can easily be controlled with Tylenol.
Muscles have ‘muscle memory’ and for many people, tight is the normal state of their facial muscles. Botox is very effective at retraining muscle memory. Through multiple Botox treatments, facial muscles can eventually forget their previous tight state. Instead, a more relaxed and smooth state can become the patient’s new normal. Proactive and regular maintenance is therefore key to achieving optimal results.
