When skin tightening surgery is not an ideal option, we offer clinically proven BOTOX® cosmetic injections at Body Systems Wellness for the non-surgical treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles, fine lines, and facial rejuvenation.
WHAT IS BOTOX®?
FDA approved in 2002, BOTOX® is a therapeutic protein solution that is renowned for its natural-looking results. This unique formulation is one of the most extensively tested treatments of its kind on the aesthetic market, and it is currently one of the most popular options for non-surgical wrinkle reduction worldwide. BOTOX is FDA approved for the treatment of frown lines, forehead and crow’s feet.
HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
As the skin ages, two different kinds of wrinkles appear – static and dynamic. BOTOX® targets the dynamic wrinkles that develop in the forehead area as a result of repeated muscle contractions in the face over time, such as crows feet and frown lines. These visible signs of aging can cause you to look constantly tired or angry, but a treatment plan with BOTOX® can help rejuvenate your overall appearance, by being injected directly into the facial muscles, where the protein solution temporarily blocks nerve signals from causing dynamic wrinkles.

COMMON AREAS THAT CAN BE TREATED WITH BOTOX®:
These vertical lines form between the eyebrows as a result of repeated facial expressions, like frowning. BOTOX® reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines, by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and preventing them from contracting.
Also known as surprise lines, these lines are the horizontal lines found on the forehead that form as a result of repeated facial movement like raising the eyebrows or making surprised expressions. We can soften and reduce the appearance of forehead lines by using BOTOX® to relax the targeted muscles and reduce their ability to contract.
A temporary brow lift can be performed using BOTOX® to lift eyebrows. The muscles in the outer brow that can create a hooded or tired appearance. This minimally- invasive, non-surgical treatment can lift the brows for three to six months and has little to no downtime associated with it.
Crow’s feet are the fine lines and wrinkles that form around the eyes as a result of repeated use of the facial muscles due to facial expressions like smiling. We can use BOTOX® to treat these fine lines and reduce their appearance for up to four months.
Bunny lines are small diagonal lines that form right below the bridge on either side of the nose. These lines form as a result of repeated facial movements, like wrinkling your nose when you laugh. We can reduce the appearance of bunny lines by injecting BOTOX® into the affected muscles on either side of the nose, which causes the muscles to relax and softens the appearance of bunny lines for three to four months.
Jaw / Masseter
We can reduce the appearance of a square jaw by injecting BOTOX® in jaw or masseter muscle to relax it and reduce its thickness. Reducing the size of the masseter muscle will allow us to create a more angular appearance and make the face appear less square.
Neck bands also called “platysmal bands” can start to appear with vertical lines in the upper and lower parts of the neck, pulling the lower part of the chin down, giving the impression of a “double chin” particularly when we hit our mid 40’s. As the soft tissue of the neck loses volume over time these bands become thicker and stronger and more and more prominent. The platysmal bands are particularly obvious in photos or in people who are in front of the camera. Fortunately Botox for neck bands works to even out the muscles that hold the neck up.

In fact, the FDA has stated BOTOX® Cosmetic is “non-interchangeable,” which means that its safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by any other product.
The potency – or strength – of BOTOX® Cosmetic is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to our unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for our product.
People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving. Be sure to ask which product you are being prescribed and why.

IS BOTOX COSMETIC ONLY FOR WOMEN?Not at all! Many men make BOTOX® Cosmetic part of what they do to care for their appearance.
The number of men choosing treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments.
When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.†
†Results from a survey of men to determine most likely treatment areas and top areas of concern for injectable-naive, aesthetically-oriented men aged 30 to 65 years (N=600). Proportion of respondents selecting that area as highest priority to treat using the Maximum Difference (MaxDiff) scaling system.
DO I NEED TO BE OVER 40 TO START USING BOTOX® COSMETIC?It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area.
Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY? HOW LONG DO TREATMENT EFFECTS LAST?You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
