Do you look in the mirror and find an angry-looking face staring back at you? Do people often say that you look tired or grumpy? Many women (and men) have moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, caused by a gradual loss of skin elasticity and repeatedly frowning or squinting, often subconsciously.

The anti-aging magic of BOTOX at Montilla Plastic Surgery

Here at Montilla Plastic Surgery, we offer treatments of BOTOX in Boston. BOTOX® is a purified protein that is FDA approved to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, and some lines around the eyes by relaxing the muscles and allowing the lines to soften and smooth out. BOTOX in Boston treatments can help you to achieve a more youthful and brighter appearance by utilizing BOTOX injections into the muscles under the skin causing the fine lines and wrinkles. This is a comfortable in-office procedure to give you a fresh look before a big event or to just look in the mirror and feel happier about how your face looks.

You can rest assured that Dr. Montilla buys BOTOX® only from Allergan, the manufacturer, and not any “discount pharmaceutical company” or any other source.

Botox Boston

How BOTOX works

BOTOX® is a protein that is injected using a very fine needle into overactive facial muscles, which blocks the chemicals that cause specific muscles to contract. BOTOX fully relaxes the muscle that is contracting and causing the skin to wrinkle above it. By softening the muscle, the skin is then able to stop contracting and softens up to become smooth again. BOTOX in Boston is a quick, minimally invasive procedure done in our offices that leads to a brighter more youthful appearance for you.


Recovery

You may resume all regular activities immediately after injection but refrain from strenuous exercise following treatment. Bruising may occur at the injection site, and a mild headache may be experienced for a day or two. It often takes a few days to see the results of your Boston BOTOX® treatment, with peak reaction 3-4 weeks after injection. Results last 3-5 months, depending on the severity of the area being treated.

How long do BOTOX results last?

Results from your BOTOX in Boston treatment can last anywhere from 3-5 months, depending on the severity of the areas being treated. As the muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles that had been smoothed away will begin to reappear. These lines and wrinkles will often be less evident as the muscle, through the BOTOX treatment are being trained to relax.

BOTOX FAQ's

Will BOTOX get rid of deep wrinkles?

Our Boston BOTOX treatments can reduce the depth of deep wrinkles, but this may take more than one treatment to achieve the desired look that you want. The doctor can prescribe a course of treatment for you once the consultation is done, determining how many injections would be needed and how many treatments might be needed to address deeper lines and wrinkles.

What happens when BOTOX wears off?

When the BOTOX wears off, the muscle will gradually reactivate and begin its normal activities of contracting as you go about your regular routines. This will lead to the gradual redevelopment of the lines or wrinkles. In some cases, these will come back with less severity than before treatment. If this is concerning to you, then definitely schedule a consultation to look into re-treating the areas of concern.

How much research has gone into BOTOX?

In the 1950s and 60's research developed around the beneficial aspects of what later became known as BOTOX. Scientists were able to purify the botulinum toxin type A into a crystalline form and then test its efficacy on blocking muscle contractions in medical applications. Research carried on through the '80s noting that during treatment of a condition that causes muscle spasms in the eyelids that there was a noticeable reduction of frown lines around the eye where the injections were done. This was a revelation to the cosmetic industry and led to more research specifically for use as a cosmetic treatment. In 2002 BOTOX got its US government approval as an effective cosmetic treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.

Will my face look overdone or frozen?

You will notice less movement in the area of the injections, but this is due to the BOTOX doing its job of relaxing the muscle. Through professional BOTOX treatment, you are guaranteed high-quality BOTOX from the manufacturer, Allergan, and nothing else. The premium neuromodulator developed by Allegan has been a trusted anti-aging injectable for years. When combined with the skilled application of our BOTOX injections, you can have the fresh, youthful look you want with minimal discomfort.

Does the treatment hurt?

There may be some discomfort with the injection. The needle used is very small, so you should only feel a slight pinch and a stinging sensation at the time of injection. If this is a concern for you, talk to us so we can numb the injection site with an ice pack or using a topical analgesic before treatment.

How many injections will I receive?

The number of injections is based on the depth of the lines or wrinkles you would like to treat. The doctor will be able to ascertain the number of injections that will be required to achieve the look you want during the consultation process. From that, he will be able to prescribe the best course of treatment that will be needed for you to achieve the brighter youthful look you desire.

What are the common side effects?

Some of the common side effects of BOTOX injections are:

  • Slight swelling at the injection site
  • A mild headache after treatment
