How BOTOX Can Benefit You and Improve Your Life
Eliminate Stubborn Wrinkles
BOTOX Cosmetic can greatly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyelids, forehead, lips, and neck and prevent new ones from forming. These targeted injections can smooth out the crow's feet and frown lines to give you a more youthful appearance.
Eliminate Facial Pain
BOTOX can also be used to help reduce facial pain and symptoms of medical conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and bruxism (teeth grinding). Our experienced dentist will place the botulinum toxin in the appropriate place to offer relief to patients who suffer from these medical conditions.
How BOTOX Cosmetic Works to Reduce Your Wrinkles
The BOTOX Advantage Safe, Simple, and Effective
BOTOX Cosmetic has been dubbed as a "lunchtime procedure" because you can come in, receive your injections, and be back to work before your lunch break ends.
Patients can return to non-strenuous activities immediately following their botulinum toxin injections.
Because the botulinum toxin is injected through a very fine needle, there will be no scarring or visible marks following your procedure.
The effects of the botulinum toxin will be visible in just a couple of days. The final anti-aging effects will be shown after about two weeks.
Has Your Face Lost Its Youthful Volume? Our Practice Also Offers JUVÉDERM Dermal Fillers
As we age, our skin can begin to sag and lose its plump, dewy look. JUVÉDERM® is a dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid (HA) that fills fine lines and wrinkles and enhances lost volume on the face and lips. The effects of this dermal filler can last up to a year.

The Types of Botulinum Toxin
There are three FDA-approved brands of botulinum toxin on the market: BOTOX, Xeomin®, and Dysport®. While there are some slight differences, BOTOX, Xeomin, and Dysport all use the same type of botulinum toxin, so they are all effective forms of wrinkle treatment. Our Loves Park, IL, office uses BOTOX, the first to hit the market and widely considered the most trusted brand.
What To Expect During Your BOTOX Appointment
BOTOX treatment is quick, but the results can last up to six months.
Avoid Touching Your Face
Avoid touching, poking, massaging, rubbing, or putting makeup on your face for at least 24 hours following your procedure. Touching your face can cause the botulinum toxin to move away from the injection site.
Avoid Lying Down
You should stand or sit straight up for the first 2 to 3 hours after your injections. Lying down can cause the botulinum toxin to move away from the injection site, which can reduce the effectiveness of your treatment.
Avoid Strenuous Activity
Activities like exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided for at least 24 hours after your injections. An elevated heart rate and an increase in blood flow can increase your risk of swelling and bruising.
You should abstain from alcohol for at least 24 hours before and after your treatment. Alcohol thins the blood, which increases your chance of swelling and bruising.
Potential Side Effects to Botulinum Toxin
BOTOX is considered a very safe procedure with minimal downtime and side effects. However, there are risks to every procedure, which is why it is important to follow the care instructions.
The common side effects are mild and should subside on their own within a few days. Severe side effects are very unusual. You should contact our Loves Park, IL, office immediately if you are experiencing any severe side effects following your treatment.
Common Side Effects
- Drooping eyelid
- Flu-like symptoms
- Temporary facial drooping
Severe Side Effects
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty swallowing or speaking
- Paralysis outside the injection site
- Loss of bladder control
