What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable used to relax underlying facial muscles, helping to diminish or eliminate the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The BOTOX Cosmetic is a highly diluted form of botulinum toxin type A, a bacterium-produced neuromuscular toxin. This safe and effective treatment has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to smooth skin, alleviate eye-muscle disorders, and prevent the recurrence of migraine headaches.

Treatment Areas

During a single brief visit to our Chattanooga or East Brainerd offices, Dr. Armstrong can use BOTOX Cosmetic injections to improve

the appearance of your:

Eyes

We can reduce or eliminate wrinkles near the corner of the eyes, often referred to as "crows' feet," that are caused by repeated muscle movements involved in making facial expressions.

Brows

BOTOX Cosmetic can treat wrinkles that form in the area between the eyes (often called the 11s). This treatment can also be used as a minimally invasive alternative to brow lift surgery, helping to eliminate frown lines between the brows.

Forehead

One of the most common treatment areas, BOTOX Cosmetic can reduce or eliminate permanent horizontal wrinkles that form on the forehead.

Jaw

Patients with oversized jaw muscles can improve the contours of their face with BOTOX Cosmetic injections.

Candidacy

/

Virtually anyone between the ages of 18 and 65 who is seeking to reduce or eliminate wrinkles is a potential candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic. During a personal consultation, Dr. Armstrong will review your candidacy for cosmetic treatment.

What to Expect Procedure Timeline

Most BOTOX Cosmetic appointments take less than 20 minutes.
Most BOTOX Cosmetic appointments take less than 20 minutes.

Consultation

During your initial consultation in Downtown Chattanooga or East Brainerd, TN, you will meet with Dr. Armstrong to discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations.

Injection Preparation

To begin, you will be asked to move specific facial muscles to help the doctor identify the ideal treatment injection sites. No anesthesia is required, but Dr. Armstrong may use a cold compress or cream to numb the targeted areas.

Injections

Dr. Armstrong will inject the botulinum toxin agent directly into the muscles that are causing your wrinkles or fine lines. The injection process typically takes less than 20 minutes. If you experience any discomfort, it should subside after a short time.

Conclusion

After your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is complete, you can return to your daily activities almost immediately.

Results

Most patients start to notice a difference in their skin about three days after their procedure. This can vary based on what area of the face was targeted. The full effect of the botulinum toxin may not be evident until two weeks after the treatment. Results typically last three months before retreatment is required.

Aftercare

For the best results, you should follow the aftercare instructions that Dr. Armstrong will provide after your procedure. These include: avoid touching or rubbing the injection sites; avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours; don't apply makeup or facial creams for 24 hours; and avoid drinking alcohol for 24 hours.

Side Effects

Botulinum toxin is a safe and effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, but some patients do experience side effects. Rare side effects include droopy eyelids, swollen eyelids, pain in the neck or head, and cold and flu symptoms. If you experience any unforeseen side effects, contact us for assistance.

BOTOX Medical for Pain Relief

Most people are familiar with botulinum toxin because of its cosmetic benefits. However, botulinum toxin can also be used to provide much-needed pain relief to patients who suffer from facial pain, TMJ disorder, or even migraine headaches.

Because botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant, injecting it into certain facial muscles can relieve tension and pain. Many patients have discovered that BOTOX Medical injections can provide the relief they've been seeking for years. If you are interested in BOTOX Medical treatment with Dr. Armstrong, contact us today.

BOTOX Cosmetic FAQs

Is botulinum toxin safe?

"Botulinum toxin" may sound scary, but in small, controlled amounts it is completely safe to use as a muscle relaxer. Many patients don't realize how common botulinum toxin is in cosmetic care. Besides BOTOX Cosmetic, other injectable brands like Dysport® and Xeomin® also utilize botulinum toxin compounds.

If I start using BOTOX Cosmetic, can I stop?

Yes. Treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic (or other injectables like Dysport or Xeomin) is not a lifelong commitment. You are free to end your BOTOX Cosmetic routine at any time. When you stop botulinum toxin injections, your muscles will return to their natural state, and some of your wrinkles and fine lines may become more prominent. However, your face will not appear more aged than it would if you had never used BOTOX Cosmetic.

Why would I see a dentist for BOTOX Cosmetic?

Most men and women in Chattanooga and East Brainerd associate BOTOX Cosmetic with plastic surgery practices or medical spas. However, more and more dental practices in the United States are offering botulinum toxin injections. Dentists like Dr. Armstrong are just as qualified as any other medical professional to administer BOTOX Cosmetic injections, and he can combine your injections with excellent cosmetic dentistry to give you the most youthful appearance possible.
