Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation with BOTOX

BOTOX is among the most sought-after nonsurgical treatments we offer here at Clevens Face and Body Specialists, thanks to its ability to help our patients achieve a more youthful look without surgery. Our team also has expertise with a variety of other popular injectables, including Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau, each of which is made from a purified protein that temporarily relaxes your facial muscles to address the wrinkles caused by the repeated formation of facial expressions. 

Clevens Face and Body Specialists is home to a team of experienced cosmetic professionals, and each one of our practitioners focuses solely on their area of expertise. Our founder Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS built this practice to offer you a truly exceptional level of care, and we’re excited to learn more about how we can unite you with your cosmetic goals. To get started, reach out and set up your consultation at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL offices.

What Exactly Is BOTOX?

The face is the most expressive part of the body, and our facial expressions work for us each day to effectively communicate our feelings. Eventually, these emotions become etched into our faces, even when we’re at rest, creating lines and wrinkles that leave us looking older than we feel. BOTOX works to address the presence of these lines and wrinkles, quickly and effectively leaving you with noticeably smoother skin.

BOTOX Cosmetic is a nonsurgical procedure that reduces the appearance of forehead furrows, frown lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles of the lower face and neck that are caused by repeated muscle movement. The BOTOX treatment is a simple procedure that is especially effective in patients who find themselves experiencing the early signs of facial aging.

What Are Some of the Benefits of BOTOX?

Not only is BOTOX safe, but the procedure is also so brief that you can complete it during your lunch break. You can also repeat this treatment as many times as you’d like, which is why so many of our patients work with us to schedule recurring maintenance appointments.

The results from your treatment will last for about three months, addressing the dynamic wrinkles that tend to be more apparent when making facial expressions.

These frequently include:

  • Horizontal forehead lines and furrows
  • Vertical brow creases, known as “the elevens”
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes)
  • Prominent vertical bands in the neck
  • Bunny lines (lines around the nose)

For static wrinkles—those that are present without making any facial expressions—your master injector can discuss the best treatment options during your consultation.

How BOTOX Creates Its Results

BOTOX Cosmetic is a highly refined, purified protein that has been proven safe in millions of treatments over the past couple of decades. When injected through the skin into the muscles responsible for facial wrinkling, BOTOX prevents the nervous system from sending the signals that tell these muscles to move in the first place. This essentially hits the “pause” button on the muscles that cause what are known as dynamic wrinkles, effectively smoothing over those that have already formed and working to prevent the formation of further lines in the future.

Do I Need BOTOX?

BOTOX is excellent for those who are looking to nonsurgically diminish the appearance of: 

  • Frown lines
  • Forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Facial lines
  • Wrinkles

The best way to know which treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation. Our facial plastic surgeons, Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, and Renata Khelemsky, MD, can also help you explore and compare other procedures—including dermal fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane, or Radiesse and laser skin resurfacing—which may help you get the results you desire, particularly if you want to address deep lines and creases.

The Ideal BOTOX Candidate

You’re a great candidate for the BOTOX treatment if you’re a physically healthy individual, are realistic in your expectations, and are interested in improving the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. 

This treatment offers an exceptional opportunity to smooth over brow lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet with a brief, safe procedure that takes just a few minutes to complete and whose effects last for several months.

Keep in mind that BOTOX is not a cure-all, and may not be the solution to your specific lines and creases. Other procedures—such as Restylane, Radiesse, dermal fillers, or laser skin resurfacing—can effectively address the more advanced signs of aging. The best way to learn more about whether BOTOX is right for you is to visit us for a consultation with one of our specialists.

Tailoring Your Results

Our patients especially love BOTOX due to the highly customizable nature of the treatment. BOTOX Cosmetic treatment can be performed more conservatively, for example, if your goal is to have greater facial animation. You can discuss your preferences with your provider prior to treatment.

Your BOTOX Procedure

Our patients love BOTOX because it’s a brief, in-office procedure that creates results that last for months. On the day of your procedure, your master injector will examine your ability to move your facial muscles, determining where they will administer the product.

Then, you’ll receive several treatments, carefully and gently placed directly into the muscles that are causing your lines and wrinkles to form.

An experienced specialist who is skilled in the art of facial rejuvenation can perform your treatment as conservatively as you wish for the most natural-looking results, and will follow a treatment plan that you’ll work to develop together. At Clevens Face and Body Specialists, we’ll also schedule a follow-up appointment about two weeks after your BOTOX treatment to discuss your results and perform a maintenance treatment, if needed, to ensure your complete satisfaction with your outcome.

Keeping You Comfortable

While most patients find their BOTOX treatment to be surprisingly tolerable, some enjoy the use of anesthetic cream to help numb the area prior to their procedure. You may experience a sensation similar to a pinprick or a mild burning sensation when the product is injected, but this will be very brief. The needle used will be very small and slender, and our team can also provide ice packs or offer you Clevens Comfort+ to relieve anxiety and discomfort during your treatment. 

BOTOX Cosmetic is especially popular thanks to its ability to create such impressive results, despite being a relatively simple and quick procedure. The treatment can take just 10 minutes to complete in the skilled and gentle hands of our specialists, at which point you’ll be free to return to your daily routine.

What Is the Recovery Like After BOTOX?

You really won't have any "recovery" after your BOTOX treatment, and will immediately be able to return to your usual activities. You can have this treatment performed during your lunch hour and return to work as soon as you’re done. 

Some minor discomfort, inflammation, swelling, redness, or bruising may occur at the treatment site, but this will be both mild and brief. Most patients see their results beginning to take shape within about three to five days of their treatment, with final results taking shape over the course of 10 to 14 days.

We’ll work closely with you to set follow-up appointments in a way that works with your schedule, so we can maintain your results and keep you looking your best. To get started, reach out and set up a consultation at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL offices.

Why is BOTOX so popular?

BOTOX Cosmetic has gained a great deal of popularity, and for good reason. The treatments are quick and easy, meaning you can even schedule your BOTOX treatment during your lunch break. Plus, BOTOX effectively addresses some of the most noticeable signs of aging, lines, and wrinkles that form around our eyes.

Many patients begin receiving BOTOX treatments in their 20s and 30s, before they’ve noticed those first signs of wrinkles, or just after their initial appearance. BOTOX provides great preventative maintenance and can help you stop the signs of aging in their tracks, delaying the need for more invasive procedures. For many of our patients, this treatment is as routine as getting a haircut or using sunscreen. You can receive your treatments repeatedly, to maintain your results, and their effectiveness will not lessen.

Which wrinkles can BOTOX treat?

There are two different types of wrinkles on the face: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present even with complete stillness and a lack of expression on the face. Dynamic wrinkles, on the other hand, are those that appear or become significantly more apparent with the formation of certain facial expressions. BOTOX Cosmetic is ideal for dynamic wrinkles of the face and is used to relax those facial muscles whose excessive action causes wrinkling of the skin. For example, the deep lines between the eyebrows—also known as frown lines—are among the most popular treatment sites for BOTOX.

Is anesthesia used during the BOTOX treatment?

Our specialists use a very fine needle to carefully place BOTOX. Anesthesia is typically not required, but if discomfort is a concern of yours, our team can provide a cold pack or anesthetic cream to numb the area. We also offer Clevens Comfort+ which is a patient-administered medicine that helps relieve anxiety and discomfort during injectable treatments.

What are the risks or complications associated with BOTOX?

Treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic (or other relaxers such as Xeomin, Dysport, or Jeuveau) is generally a safe procedure, though we like to inform our patients that every medical procedure carries certain risks and the potential for complications. Potential side effects or complications of this procedure may include:

  • Bruising
  • Numbness
  • Temporary eyelid droop

For the best possible results, make sure your provider is a master injector who has extensive knowledge of facial anatomy and plenty of experience performing BOTOX treatments, like the facial plastic surgeons and their team at Clevens Face and Body Specialists in Merritt Island and Melbourne, FL.

How long will my BOTOX results last?

After your BOTOX Cosmetic procedure, you can expect your results to last for about three months. After about four months or so, you may notice that your results have gradually worn off, at which point repeat treatments will be necessary to maintain the results. This procedure can be safely repeated indefinitely.

“I have been so self-conscious of my forehead lines for years and recently just could hardly stand seeing them in my reflection—they were all I would notice! Finally I bit the bullet and went in for some injectables ... It was virtually painless, I was in and out quickly, and the best part is, I noticed a difference within just a few days. And now—I LOVE my forehead! I can't believe what a difference it made!” –TamaraHerchel
