Botox Anti-Aging and Wrinkle Treatments

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. We all age, but you might want to see a little less evidence of it on your face. Botox cosmetic injections can help by reducing or eliminating facial lines and wrinkles caused by muscular contraction. This skin-enhancing rejuvenation treatment can lift the corners of your mouth, soften the creases between your eyes, and erase horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet. In other words, Botox will turn back the clock on your skin.

If you’re interested in trying Botox, visit one of our offices for a consultation. We’ll walk you through the process, make recommendations based on your skin and face, and give you all the information you need to make the decision.

 

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified protein that is directly injected into muscle. The protein works to relax the tissue, which in turn softens wrinkles. This creates a smoother complexion. Botox treatments are fast and painless, and most patients require no anesthesia. However, we do have topical anesthetic available for those who are nervous about discomfort.

 

What Should I Expect from Botox?

Before the injections, one of our medical professionals will sit down with you to discuss your desired results. After making recommendations for placement and treatment, we will clean the skin and, if desired, use a topical anesthetic to numb the area. The doctor will then inject the treatment into the face at the desired points. There is no downtime following the procedure, but we advise that you not massage the area for a couple of days.

On average, each treatment takes about 45 minutes to complete, making this a very flexible and easy procedure. The effects of the treatment fillers will become visible in 7 to 10 days. Our patients typically return for additional Botox treatments every 3 to 6 months. After that time, the effects of the protein will gradually wear off.

Don't Leave Your Botox Treatment to Chance

Only a licensed medical professional should perform a Botox treatment. When you choose Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, you will receive care from one of our trained, experienced providers. Our clinics in Minneapolis, Edina, and Plymouth, MN, are led by Dr. Brian Zelickson, making us a dermatologist-owned and dermatologist-directed clinic. We care about your skin as much as you do, and we won’t leave your treatments in the hands of undertrained staff, non-medical personnel, or independent contractor providers. We staff four full-time RNs, three full-time estheticians, and two dedicated patient coordinators. This ensures that all our patients receive the best care possible – for Botox treatments or any of the other procedures we provide.

Botox is also part of the Brilliant Distinctions program. This allows our patients to enjoy exclusive savings on select Allergan products, like KYBELLA® and Latisse, by earning points to redeem for future visits. This is especially useful for those who enjoy Botox treatments, as many of our patients receive between 2 and 4 procedures each year.
