Over time, smiles, frowns, and other facial expressions can leave lines and wrinkles on our faces. While other treatments can diminish their appearance, for deep lines and wrinkles around and between the eyes and across the forehead, Botox® can relax those lines away for months at a time.

What is Botox®?

Botox® contains botulinum A toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks signals between nerves and muscles. While Botox® has been used in medicine for many years to treat a variety of conditions, Botox® Cosmetic has been FDA-approved to treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. 

Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute offers Botox® to people who want to see their expression lines become less prominent or see a relaxing of heavy wrinkles. Well-established as safe and effective, as well as one of the most popular cosmetic products in the world, Botox® provides excellent results for anything from mild to severe lines and wrinkles

How Does Botox® Work?

When injected into the treatment area, Botox® prevents nerves from telling muscles to contract. When facial muscles contract, they pull on the skin, which can lead to deep wrinkles. Allowing these muscles to become smooth and relaxed lets the skin become softer, and lines and wrinkles fade away. 

Botox® in the hands of an experienced injection professional will leave you with a natural appearance and all of your normal facial expressions. You want people to notice that you look younger or that your frown lines have faded, not that your face looks frozen, so make sure your provider, like Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, has trusted professionals handling this treatment. 

How Long Will it Take to See Results With Botox®?

You should see results with Botox® within three to four days, although full results may take up to ten days. The active neurotoxin takes a few days to act on the nerve cells, but once the muscles begin to relax, you will start to see immediate results.

Is There Any Downtime With Botox®?

There is no downtime with Botox®. You may have some bruising or swelling at the injection sites, but this will go away within a day or two. Your treatment should take less than half an hour, and afterward, you can resume your day. 

How Long Does Botox® Last?

Botox® typically lasts about three or four months, depending on the area being treated and your individual response to the treatment. You can have Botox® every few months to keep your results looking as smooth and relaxed as your first treatment. 

During your complimentary consultation, you will receive an individualized treatment plan that will outline the number of treatments necessary, the cost of the treatments, payment or financing options, and our team will answer any other questions you have about Botox®.

“I could not be happier with the services provided by Dr. Cutchen’s and his entire staff. Everyone treated me with respect and cared for the improvement of my veins and I never felt like “just another number”. Follow up care was great. The office manager is really easy to work with and never caused me any issues. Overall- this is the place to be treated!” *
