About BOTOX

To help turn back the hands of time and to avoid lines and wrinkles from occurring on the top portion of the face, DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA is proud to offer BOTOX to area individuals.

This facial rejuvenation treatment provides gorgeous results and is popular among both men and women. BOTOX can help reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Facial wrinkles happen when you make expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. These facial lines may or may not go away as the face relaxes. BOTOX is a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To soften these lines, BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed in between the brows where the number "11" appears, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.

Are Botox injections for you?

To reduce and soften wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on your upper face, BOTOX injections can help you achieve smoother skin without having to undergo surgery. BOTOX is also used as a preventive anti-aging treatment, even for younger patients. Keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. If you have obvious forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows, BOTOX is a great noninvasive treatment. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you experience deeper lines, we may recommend a combination of BOTOX and a dermal filler. Also, for patients over the age of 50 who have sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, a facelift might offer more dramatic, longer-lasting results. DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as effective options.

Procedure Technique

At DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA, we conveniently perform BOTOX injections as an outpatient procedure. During your first visit, we generally administer BOTOX within the same day as your consultation. In the procedure room, we ask patients to make several facial expressions using the upper face, like squinting and frowning. This helps us visualize where we need to place the injections. Before the treatment, we clean your skin and administer BOTOX with a fine needle. Next, we will apply a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Also, patients can request a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. Typically, BOTOX injections take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you may resume your usual routine almost immediately.

Your BOTOX injections

Following your BOTOX injection, you can resume your typical routine, although you should avoid strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. We ask patients to sleep upright for the first night and to avoid touching their face, which may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of the face may become bruised, swollen, or red for a few days, but you should not develop any serious or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it often takes around 5 – 7 days before patients can fully see the results of BOTOX. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. To extend your results, patients can talk to their BOTOX injector about how often to make follow-up appointments at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics.
