To some, wrinkles are evidence of a life well-lived. Wrinkles and fine lines appear and deepen over years of expressing yourself, which is why some are named for emotions—for example, ’smile lines,’ and ‘frown lines.’ At Dentistry and Aesthetics by Design, we believe men and women can have both: a full, exciting life and a wrinkle-free face. BOTOX® and JUVEDERM® cosmetic injections can help turn back the clock by reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Undergoing BOTOX® in Hinsdale can even help prevent fine lines from deepening.
What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® injections provide a non-surgical solution for wrinkles and fine lines. Ideal for both men and women, these FDA-approved injections temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet lines. BOTOX® works to paralyze or relax key facial muscles, preventing the repeated contractions which contribute to deepening unwanted lines on the face. Depending on the specific area or depth of the wrinkle, JUVEDERM® facial fillers may provide an ideal complement for desired results.
The BOTOX® Process
Consult With Dr. Morgan
The experience at Dentistry and Aesthetics by Design begins with a consultation with Dr. Morgan. In order to provide the best recommendations possible, we will ask you about your past experiences with cosmetic treatments, current frustrations, and what your long-term goals are for anti-aging. Together, we will come up with a plan for your first treatment with us and beyond.
Moving Forward With Injections
If we determine that BOTOX® is a good fit for your overall goals, Dr. Morgan will identify the ideal injection sites on your face. Before moving forward, a topical anesthetic will be applied to help numb the area. Patients experience a range of sensations during the injection process. If you are especially concerned about the pain, please mention this during your consultation.
Recovery & Beyond
You will begin to notice the results during the first week, with full results towards the one-month mark. Patients who take aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may experience some poin-point bruising at the injection site. You can wear makeup immediately after your procedure, however we recommend avoiding intense workouts for at least 24 hours.
Will My Face Look ‘Frozen’?
Many people hold the misconception that BOTOX® cosmetic injections will cause them to completely lose the ability to express themselves. It’s important to see a certified provider, such as Dr. Morgan, to ensure that the correct amount of units is administered during the treatment. The proper amount of BOTOX® will soften, but not eliminate, your expressions.
