Everything You Need to Know About Botox Cosmetic From Still SLC

Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles of the face. It’s intended to temporarily diminish the appearance of lines in the face, specifically on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and the mouth. Treatment works by blocking nerve signals to the injected muscles so they can’t contract for a few. Botox Cosmetic helps you look like you but with less noticeable wrinkles and lines.

What’s the Difference Between Botox and Botox Cosmetic?

Botox is the name of a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It can be used for medical conditions, such as muscle spasms and excessive sweating. However, Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved product specifically formulated to reduce wrinkles and lines on the face. The benefits are intended to be temporary, lasting up to four months.

What Should You Expect During a Botox Treatment?

Prior to your first Botox Cosmetic treatment, you will have an initial consultation with our provider at Still SLC. The doctor or nurse will evaluate the areas of your face where lines and wrinkles are most prominent, and discuss which muscle groups they plan to treat.

The procedure itself is quick and relatively painless. Using a very thin needle, your provider will inject Botulinum toxin injections, like Botox Cosmetic into the targeted muscles of your face. The entire treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes.

You may experience some redness and swelling at the injection sites immediately after your appointment. These symptoms should subside within a few hours, however, it is best to avoid any strenuous activities, such as exercise and heavy lifting, for the first 24 hours.

  • Botox Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind.
  • It’s the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in both women and men.
  • It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like a refreshed version of yourself

What Botox Cosmetic Treats

A combination of factors causes facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that occur in our bodies, the reduced production of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions in our faces, such as frowning, squinting, raising eyebrows, etc… cause the skin to furrow and fold. Gradually, vertical lines form on our foreheads, at the corners of our eyes, and around our mouths.

Botox Cosmetic works beneath the surface to temporarily reduce the muscle activity that causes frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Freezing the muscles helps the skin look visibly smoother.
