Let Go of Lines

What is Botox?

Botox was first approved for therapeutic use all the way back in 1989. Later, researchers discovered its cosmetic applications for relaxing wrinkles caused by habitual muscle contractions, and in 2002, Botox was approved for cosmetic use. Since then, injectable neurotoxins like Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Daxxify have revolutionized the aesthetic world, offering an easy and minimally invasive way to visibly reduce deep creases, wrinkles, frown lines, and other common concerns. These products are formulated with botulinum toxin, which blocks nerve signals to small facial muscles responsible for facial wrinkles, letting the skin relax and smooth out. With Botox Pittsburgh patients see results that can last several months at a time, making it easy to enhance your look and your confidence.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Injectable neuromodulators like Botox are a great way to refresh your look. The injection process is simple, minimally invasive, and completely designed around your look and you beauty goals. Benefits of injectable neurotoxins include:

Wrinkle Reduction:

By inhibiting muscle contractions, neurotoxins smooth out existing wrinkles, providing a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Wrinkles on areas like the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, on the chin, and muscle banding on the neck can be significantly reduced or eliminated for several months.

Wrinkle Prevention:

Beyond addressing existing wrinkles, Botox can also be used preventatively to attempt to delay the onset of more pronounced facial lines.

Minimally Invasive:

Botox injections are quick, simple, and involve minimal discomfort. The treatment is performed in our office, and patients can usually resume their regular activities shortly after the procedure.


Treatments are highly customizable to meet your unique needs and aesthetic goals. We tailor the injections around your facial anatomy and desired outcomes, ensuring a natural-looking effect that harmonizes with your facial features.


An injection appointment takes only a short amount of time, often around 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. There is minimal downtime, and most people resume their daily activities almost immediately.

Quick and Convenient

Your Botox Procedure

Botox is administered via a series of injections. The number and distribution of injections will depend on your goals. The needle used for this treatment is narrow, and most people find it very tolerable. We can also apply a topical anesthetic to the skin for added comfort. Most Botox appointments take thirty minutes or less, making neurotoxins a convenient way to get a long-lasting complexion refresh in minutes.

Botox Results

You may start to see some improvements right away, but the optimal results of neurotoxin injections usually take one to two weeks to develop. During this time, muscle contractions diminish, and the skin begins to relax and smooth out. The results of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin will remain effective for three to four months, while Daxxify can provide improvements for as long as six to nine months. You may schedule touch-up appointments periodically to enjoy longer-lasting results and continue to slow down new wrinkles from forming.


Botox Recovery and Aftercare

After recieving Botox Pittsburgh patients could experience mild side effects. The treatment area may be swollen, sensitive, or display mild bruising, but these side effects resolve within a few days. You can resume many activities right away. Aftercare involves refraining from rubbing or massaging the treated areas and staying upright for several hours to prevent the unintentional spread of the neurotoxin to nearby muscles. You’ll need to be gentle when cleansing or applying products to the treated areas and protect your skin from sun exposure. Your injector will provide clear aftercare instructions and is always available to answer questions after your appointment as the treatment goes to work.

Botox Frequently Asked Questions

Botox and other injectable neuromodulator brands like Dysport, Xeomin, and Daxxify are made with botulinum toxin. This substance temporarily pauses muscle contractions in the areas where it is injected, allowing the overlying skin to smooth out. Botox has both corrective and preventative benefits for skin quality and texture, treating existing dynamic wrinkles and helping slow the formation of new lines.

Common treatment areas for injectable neurotoxins include forehead lines, glabellar lines (vertical “11” frown lines between the brows), crow's feet (fine lines around the eyes), bunny lines (lines that appear on the nose with movement), a sagging brow, chin dimples, smoker’s lines, and neck bands.

Botox is considered safe for most people when administered by a qualified injector. Side effects are rare and typically occur due to the Botox product spreading outside of the treatment because of incorrect injection techniques or aftercare.

We perform treatments with all the major brands of injectable neuromodulators — Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Daxxify. While these products relax wrinkles through the same mechanism, there are small differences in their formulations. The result is that each product has slightly different effects regarding the onset of results and their duration. Different product consistencies can also make them well-suited to specific treatment areas. We will help you understand your options to select the best product for you.

There is no right age to have neurotoxin treatments. In addition to reducing existing wrinkles, Botox and other neuromodulators can slow the formation of new ones. This benefit has made Botox increasingly popular among patients in their 20s and 30s while it remains a common corrective treatment for other people in their 40s, 50s, and beyond.
