Introduction to BOTOX

Aging has its advantages and disadvantages, most of which don’t bother people. The biggest issue with getting older is that your face is no longer as young and pristine as you remember it. While a facelift, brow lift, or neck lift may help get rid of the fine lines and wrinkles, Dr. Golger also offers his Scottsdale patients a non-surgical option of facial rejuvenation with BOTOX! Below, we have included some wonderful benefits of the treatment and information to help you decide if this treatment is right for you!

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an FDA-approved minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that uses the bacterium botulinum toxin type A that relaxes the treated muscle to produce incredible results. As a cosmetic procedure, BOTOX can reduce and even eliminate wrinkles or other marks on the face. It is typically used on the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can help treat the following symptoms:

  • Bunny lines (small, slightly diagonal wrinkles on both sides of the nose that appear when you wrinkle your nose)
  • Brow lifts
  • Crow’s feet
  • Downturned or gummy smiles
  • Loose and crepey skin on the eyelids, cheeks, and neck
  • Pebbly chins (a.k.a. “orange peel” chin, has an uneven and not smooth appearance)
  • Vertical lip lines

BOTOX has also been used in other applications for the body, such as treating underarms and palms of hands from hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), migraines, or even urinary incontinence.

Who Are The
Best Candidates

The best candidates for BOTOX in Scottsdale have the following characteristics:

  • Are between the ages of 18 – 64
  • Don’t have any allergies to any of the ingredients
  • Have moderate to severe frown lines or wrinkles
  • In overall good health
  • Keep realistic expectations for the outcome of your treatment
  • Not currently pregnant or nursing

Unfortunately, you may not be a viable candidate if you have any allergies to any ingredient in Botox or another botulinum toxin product, have a skin infection at the planned site of injection, or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

What’s the First Step?

The first step in getting BOTOX in Scottsdale is to contact Plastic Surgery Scottsdale and schedule your consultation. During your appointment, you will be able to meet with Dr. Golger or one of our Aesthetic team members and discuss your goals for the treatment, receive an evaluation of your face, and be asked certain medical questions to ensure that you are a good candidate and will have a successful treatment and recovery. After collecting the information he needs, your treatment plan will be made, and if you agree with this plan and would like to move forward with it, we can perform your treatment immediately afterward. If you would like to reschedule for any reason, our Patient Coordinator can help you choose the best day and time for you.

What to Expect on the Day of BOTOX

BOTOX injections are incredibly quick and easy, producing incredible results. When you come into our boutique office, you won’t require any anesthesia so you will just need to sit down and make yourself comfortable, however, you can request local anesthesia if needed. Dr. Golger will use a tiny needle to inject the botulinum toxin into targeted locations. He will do it in short, smaller amounts to avoid overdoing it, and only adding more if needed.

BOTOX Recovery

After your BOTOX treatment, you will be able to return to your normal routine, but your face may have a slightly overfilled appearance, along with some reddened appearance where the needle was inserted. We do encourage you to avoid any strenuous activity to avoid accidentally moving the injectable to other locations on your face. You should also avoid wearing makeup for this same reason. After a few days, your face will settle into its natural resting position and last between three to six months, depending on how long it takes for your body will absorb the product. You will be provided with instructions on how to achieve the best possible results.
