BOTOX is a popular nonsurgical procedure at John Williams MD, Plastic Surgery. This injectable treatment 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 performed in the United States. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles. There is no downtime. In addition, this is not 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 and want to maintain their refreshed look.
"Dr. Williams and his staff are the best! I've been to the office for non-surgical services (Botox, dermaplaning, and a facial) and had a great experience. Dr. Williams did the Botox injection himself and explained how the muscles of the face work, how Botox works on the muscles, and what kind of results I could expect. The injections were pretty much painless, and I've been loving the results! Dr. Williams' demeanor is professional but also very real - he's an easy person to talk to, and really listened when I spoke. I had dermaplaning and a facial with McKenna, the medical aesthetician at the office. The experience was fantastic from start to finish. She also explains each step of the process, and doesn't just sell you on products and services - she made a specific recommendation for a product for me that was based on my skin and my habits. My skin has never looked better. Nicole is the office manager and is just as amazing. She's warm and friendly, and adds to phenomenal experience. She's also easy to talk to, and makes you feel like a friend, and not a patient. I am considering a breast reduction surgery this year, and will definitely be scheduling it with Dr. Williams. His attention to detail during a Botox injection speaks volumes on the level of care I can expect when he does my surgery."- R.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2016
"I went to Dr Williams office for Botox for one area that I was concerned about and I was very happy with my treatment. Office is very nice, Dr Williams is very professional and listened to me. I also had dermaplane facial with aesthetician Stephanie Childers and she also did a great job! Very professional and caring, made me feel comfortable."- D.S. / Google / Sep 12, 2018
"I went to Dr. Williams for a dermal filler and Botox injections. He injected my lips and I have been obsessed with the results! For the first time, I'm not self conscious having pictures taken of me due to not being happy with my lips. My sister's have both had Botox injections with him also with amazing results. They recommended him to me. One of my sister's also had a mommy makeover with him after massive weightloss and was featured in a famous book that was just published at Barnes and Nobles with her results. It’s really cool! The procedures with Dr. Williams changed her entire life! It melts my heart seeing her finally post pictures of herself, dressing up for Halloween, doing things she never did before surgery. I plan on going to Dr. Williams for a tummy tuck, monsplasty, and breast augmentation myself ASAP and I can't wait because I’ve been dying to have that for myself too for years."- C.D. / Google / Sep 28, 2018
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, the forehead and the crow's feet area 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 15-50 units of the medication. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine needle. Discomfort is minimal.
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 avoid exercise for 4-6 hours after a treatment. 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.
