Botox

What Is It For?

Neuromodulators such as, BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®, are FDA approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles associated with movement such as frowning and smiling. They can also treat TMJ pain associated with teeth grinding and for masseter muscle reduction.

Our Approach


BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®  all work via neuromodulation to limit muscle movement. The neurotoxin is injected into the muscle to erase wrinkles caused by frowning, smiling, and other muscle contractions, thereby softening fine lines and wrinkles. Here at Lushful Aesthetics we focus on global optimization by treating the glabellar complex, forehead lines, crows feet, bunny lines, chin, and in some cases temples. We do not treat isolated areas here at Lushful Aesthetics, as this often leads to poor results and dissatisfaction from patients. Global optimization pricing is for Xeomin®, other toxins are priced at $14/unit.

Patients are always seen two weeks after their Botox appointment to assess if additional Botox is needed. If additional units are required at the two week follow-up, this is always complimentary.

Pre-Care | Post-Care
  • Avoid alcohol consumption for 3 days prior to receiving injections. 

  • Consult with your medical provider, discontinue blood thinning medication such as Ibuprofen, Excedrin, Aspirin, Aleve, and Fish Oil a week prior to injections.

FAQs

How long does Botox last?

Botox usually lasts 3-4 months on average.


Will my face be frozen?

Being frozen is not the goal for most patients. You will not be frozen unless you request to have very restricted movement. Typically, patients' goals are to have limited movement for a natural refreshed appearance.


Why do I need to come back in 2 weeks after my appointment?

Coming back for your 2 week appointment is crucial to see if you need any touch-ups. Sometimes patients need an extra unit here or there. Because it’s usually just a sprinkle if a touch up is even necessary, there is no additional cost. We make a note in your chart so we know how much to adjust for your next treatment.


How do I know how many units I need?

The amount of units you’ll need will be determined during our assessment. The ultimate thing to keep in mind is that stronger facial muscles require more neurotoxin for movement restriction. We’ll of course also keep in mind your goals and how much movement you’d like to have post-treatment.


My friend usually just gets 30 units, can I do the same?

It’s important for us to do an assessment to determine how many units are appropriate for your unique facial anatomy. In line with our goal of global optimization, we have set a price that would cover up to 100 units to avoid unsatisfactory results.


What is “baby” Botox?

Baby Botox is a marketing term that describes using small doses of Botox to prevent the formation of wrinkles. Keep in mind, you still need the correct dosing for your unique anatomy and there isn’t a set unit amount for “baby Botox”. Most patients seeking “baby Botox” want mild restriction to prevent harsh lines from forming. This is doable, but keep in kind that in order for Botox to be “preventative”, movement must be restricted.


Does Botox prevent wrinkles?

Yes, if started early enough. Botox and other neurotoxins can delay the onset of wrinkles associated with muscle movements from forming. Wrinkles associated from sleeping (your face squishing against the pillow) and wrinkles associated from skin collagen loss are not prevented from treatments with Botox and other neurotoxins.


Why do I still have wrinkles after Botox?

Some patients require a touch-up at their 2 week appointment to perfect their results. Keep in mind, it’s always better to under treat you initially, especially if it’s your first time receiving Botox. We can always add more at your 2 week follow-up appointment, but over treatment cannot be corrected - you will have to wait for the effects of the neurotoxin to wear off. Additionally, wrinkles from lifestyle (sun exposure, face squishing on pillow, etc) and collagen loss are not improved with neurotoxin injections.
