What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription medication injected just under the skin with a very fine needle. It blocks nerve impulses to facial muscles and thereby decreases fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Downie explains the process this way, “If you don’t crease the envelope (the forehead, between the eyes, and at the outer corners of the eyes) by tensing those muscles, you won’t develop a deep line in the skin. You won’t look angry, stressed, or tired when you are actually happy.”

Where can Botox be used?

Botox can be used in almost every area of the face, including frown lines on the forehead, crow’s feet, and other facial lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to decrease sweating under the arms and on the hands and feet.

Other uses of Botox include not allowing the corners of your lips to descend into a frown with age – that is keeping your smile level. It is also FDA approved for migraine headaches and can be used to treat TMJ (pains in the jaw) and to smooth the outline of a bulky jaw.

How is the procedure performed?

Treatments take only a few minutes. Patients sit in the treatment chair as they receive fast, gentle injections of Botox to address the problem areas.

What can I expect after the procedure?

Results begin to show in three to five days, and last about three to four months or longer. Some slight bruising can occur, but it is minor and temporary, easily camouflaged with makeup.

Who is a proper candidate for treatment?

Most patients are good candidates for Botox – anyone from their late 20’s into their 80’s and 90’s.


Some patients may experience redness, local discomfort, swelling, and bruising at the injection site, though this is typically short-term. Rarely one can get temporary drooping of the upper eyelid. Although rare, some patients may not respond as well to injections as others and may need more than one treatment for optimum results.

A significantly fuller and refreshed appearance is evident after the filler as well as the chemical peel, revealing a definitive glow.

Now we’re going to do some Botox, some filler, a peel, and I might even do a couple of skin tags if he lets me. Botox is like breathing. It’s going to make you look like your best you. Filler we need to replace a little volume as we start to mature. And quite frankly the peels texture, tone, acne, fine lines and they just make you have that glow factor.
