BOTOX

Botox® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved, non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedure used by millions of women and men worldwide to reduce the signs of aging and restore a relaxed, youthful appearance.

It works by relaxing the muscles that create facial wrinkles such as worry lines, laugh lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles around your mouth, and more. It’s especially good at smoothing away the set of vertical lines that can develop between your eyebrows (sometimes called your “11s”).

Temporarily improves the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

You can get treated in all three areas at the same time – that’s the beauty of Botox® Cosmetic.

While a desire for younger-looking skin is the main reason most people seek out facial rejuvenation in the first place, the treatment has many other benefits:

  • Fast
  • No anesthesia
  • No downtime
  • Fast results
  • Customizable treatment
  • Reversible

Frequently Asked Questions

Which wrinkles on my face can I treat with Botox®?

Botox® is FDA approved for use on

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Horizontal lines on the forehead
  • Wrinkles between the eyebrows

Does it hurt?

Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox® injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal. At White Coat Aesthetics, we offer distractors from the pain such as a vibrating tool used on the skin near the injection site, ice packs, and even numbing cream, so you may not feel much pain if anything at all!

Will my face look unnatural?

Receiving too much Botox® in the wrong places, can make your face look “frozen” or expressionless. We can assure you that our experienced Master Injector and Nurse Practitioner, Amanda Ralph, is skilled in making you look just like your normal self–just noticeably more youthful and refreshed!

How much will I need?

The amount of Botox® you’ll need depends entirely on a few contributing factors. These include: 

  • The type of wrinkles you’d like to treat
  • Your unique aesthetic goals
  • The degree of muscle movement in your face
  • The number of times you’ve had Botox® in the past 
  • Your health history

What's the difference between Botox® and fillers?

People easily get these two types of injectables confused all the time, but here’s an easy way to distinguish between the two: Botox® is for limiting muscle movement, and fillers are for building volume.

Botox® reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers, however, fill the trouble areas with a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to plump and lift the skin to replace volume loss.

How long does it last?

In general, Botox® injections are meant to last 3-4 months. To keep results going, you could need a follow-up treatment. After that, you should be able to expect your treatments to begin lasting longer.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects of any injectable include:

  • Muscle weakness near the injection sites
  • Slight bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Redness
  • Swelling
