Introduction to BOTOX®
At our state-of-the-art practice in Las Vegas, Botox is one of our most frequently performed treatments. Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox injections is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry. It is estimated that more than 6 million injections are given each year. Usually, these injections are either Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport. These neurotoxins are derived from Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring organism that exists inactively and is also non-toxic.
Our Las Vegas BOTOX® patients find that Dr. K provides some of the best results in Nevada, while always placing patient safety as a top priority.
What is BOTOX®?
The Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the skin, especially around the eyes. The toxin paralyzes the underlying muscles. For this reason, Botox treatments are usable beyond beauty. Some people use the injections to manage muscular movements, bladder and bowel disorders, migraines, and excessive sweating.
Dysport in Las Vegas
Dysport is a natural-looking, fast-acting, and long-lasting alternative to BOTOX®. Depending on the treatment area, Dr. K will sometimes recommend Dysport over BOTOX®. Dysport is commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows. The recovery time is similar to other injectables, with patients being able to go back to their normal daily activities following the treatment. The cost of the treatment is best discussed during your appointment, as it will vary depending on the treatment area.
Xeomin in Las Vegas
Xeomin is another injectable option. Very similar to the other two, Xeomin is also commonly used in the frown line. Xeomin is also a Botulinum toxin. The main difference between BOTOX® and Xeomin is that the latter doesn’t have accompanying, inactive protein, while the former does. The treatment typically takes under 15 minutes to perform with no downtime.
Who are the Best Candidates for BOTOX®?
As one of the leading medical spas in Nevada, we’ve had the luxury of treating thousands of Las Vegas BOTOX patients. Below, we’ve included some of the best candidates for the treatment:
- Patients typically have fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead
- Many patients have crows feet around the eyes
- Patients should have realistic expectations and be well educated on what the treatment can and cannot do
- Candidates should be of an adult age
- Both men and women are candidates for BOTOX®
What are the Benefits of BOTOX®?
Botox is a revolutionary treatment with countless benefits. Many people nowadays even take it to treat Mirgranes (when administrated by an expert). Below, we’ve included some aesthetic benefits:
- The treatment is a fantastic solution to rid your face of forehead wrinkles
- It can provide more self-confidence, as many of the targeted areas prove to make patients feel self-conscious
- As opposed to surgical options, there is no downtime for cosmetic injections. Many patients even get them during a lunch break
- There is absolutely no follow-up appointment needed
- You’ll look younger and more refreshed in just days
- The treatment will smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead and eye area
Besides the benefits listed above, BOTOX® can also be used for neck skin treatment, acne treatment, to reduce oiliness of the skin, and can be used to treat migraine headaches.
What to Expect on the day of getting BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is administered using a fine needle. While most of our patients don’t complain about the injections, we do offer a topical numbing agent to help our patients feel more comfortable about the treatment. The procedure is done within just a few minutes. Oftentimes, there is minimal bruising and bleeding, which will subside quickly. The injections will be placed in the forehead or around the eyes, depending on the area of concern.
What’s the First Step?
If you’re interested in getting BOTOX® or our other specialty wrinkle relaxers, such as Dysport or Xeomin, the first step will be to book an appointment. By giving us a call or filling out the contact form on our website, our compassionate team will schedule your consultation with Dr. K. During your consultation, Dr. K will explain the process, give her recommendations on which injectable is best suited for you, and answer any questions. If you’re happy with our recommendations, Dr. K will either be able to perform the injections during your appointment or we can schedule a time for you to come back. You should be as open and honest with Dr. K as possible, as the more information she has about your aesthetic goals, the better she’ll be able to help you accomplish them.
The great thing about Botox is its recovery. There is no downtime and usually no sign of even getting the treatment done just minutes after. There can be minor tenderness, which most of our patients say they don’t even notice or subsides the following day.
