Overview

BOTOX is a popular nonsurgical injection at John Williams Plastic Surgery that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crow's feet near the eyes. BOTOX is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, and is the most common cosmetic treatment in the United States. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles. No downtime. No surgical procedure. While many other offices have nurses or medical assistants administer BOTOX, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. John Williams, performs all injections himself. Patients who come to our Scottsdale, AZ plastic surgery office to receive BOTOX injections every 3 – 4 months, usually set up their appointments months in advance because they love their results so much.

What to Expect

During the initial consultation, the forehead will be assessed so that the appropriate amount of BOTOX can be determined. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. Most patients require anywhere between 1-3 syringes of the medication. During the same in-office appointment, the forehead will be marked with ink so that during treatment it will be known where the injections will go. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine syringe. Discomfort is minimal, but it is controlled with cold compression.

BOTOX® Recovery

After their BOTOX treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. There will be some mild swelling and redness, but this is minimal and goes away within 3-4 hours. It is important for patients to sleep upright the first night following their injections, and exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Results following BOTOX are most apparent around day 5-7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
