Who can benefit from Botox?

Primarily those who desire younger looking skin of face and neck. When combined with fillers, our doctors and nurses can effectively eliminate facial wrinkles, improve skin texture, improve skin clarity and eliminate that aged, sun damaged look of skin of face, neck and cleavage.

BOTOX treatments enhance and lift the skin of the face, where initial signs of aging are seen. The goal of the procedure is to enhance the definition, shape, volume and size of the areas around the eyes, nose, cheeks and/or chin.

How does Botox work?

Botox blocks a chemical liquid messenger known as acetylcholine, which is the main substance that allows signals to flow from nerve endings to the muscles. Therefore, when Botox blocks acetylcholine in the nerve-muscle junction plate, the muscle contraction is, in effect, weakened.

What is Botox used for?

For our purposes, Botox is used to reduce dynamic wrinkles on the face/neck and decolletage (cleavage). Specifically, Botox can treat the following:

  • Frown vertical and horizontal lines, what is known as the “11 lines” between the eyebrows
  • Forehead horizontal wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Bunny, wolf lines at the base of the nose
  • Migraine headaches
  • Excessive face and body sweating as armpit, hands, feet and forehead (hyperhidrosis)
  • Provide a temporary breast lift
  • Help female urinary incontinence “overactive bladder”
  • Help male premature ejaculation
  • Reduce inflammation and intensity of psoriasis plaques, including scalp psoriasis
  • Reduce size of skin pores
  • Help painful sex due to pelvic muscle inflammation
  • Arthritis pain (dystonia)
  • Lazy eye (blepharospasm)
  • Spasticity after stroke (paralysis)

Frequently Asked Questions

How much downtime should I expect after treatment?

None. Patients return to everyday life immediately after leaving our office.

BOTOX and Dysport are identical in function and endurance. They have a protein coating that comes off gradually once inside the muscles, exposing the active ingredient botulinum toxin. Xeomin, however, does not have a protein coat and its effects can be immediate. When Purtox becomes available, it too will have an identical function to that of BOTOX and Dysport.

Botox treatments every three to four month are optimal to avoid returning to your wrinkle baseline.

Results appear slowly over the two weeks following treatment. Relaxation of the facial muscles reaches its peak around two weeks post-treatment.

The procedure lasts somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes. There is no standard anesthetic used, just cold therapy with ice to reduce injection site swelling. Injection site swelling should be almost entirely gone before you leave the office.

The expert hands in our practice use tiny injection needles that are virtually pain-free.

Side effects are rare, but according to the medical literature, side effects include difficulty swallowing, speaking or breathing. Rarely, headaches, dry mouth, bruising, swelling, temporary discomfort can also occur.

Since this procedure is technique dependent, our experts at the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute of Chicago achieve pleasant, natural and lasting facial rejuvenation with minimal number of units. Treatment that is too aggressive may lead to undesirable effects.

Yes. While one treatment will not permanently remove wrinkles, we offer special annual BOTOX and filler packages that will keep your wrinkles out of sight permanently through a series of injections over the course of the year.
