BOTOX is the leading non-surgical solution to dynamic wrinkles. With an ability to temporarily paralyze the underlying muscles that are causing your facial lines, our BOTOX in Tucson offers an easy way to restore smooth and youthful skin.
Botox is a popular, easily-experienced injectable treatment that temporarily relaxes tense muscles in the face. These muscles are what cause wrinkles to appear. Botox is formulated with a low, safe, low dose of a purified protein called botulinum toxin. This substance forces the tensed muscles to relax, causing wrinkles to disappear. Younger patients can use Botox as a preventative treatment to hold off wrinkles from forming in the first place, while older patients use Botox as a rejuvenation treatment to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines.

The best time to start our Tucson wrinkle reduction with BOTOX is when wrinkles first begin appearing. This is because the medication is extremely effective in treating mild lines – and can even prevent them from worsening. Here are three signs it’s time for BOTOX injections:
Most of our patients begin their Tucson BOTOX injections for existing wrinkles in their late 30s and continue with them indefinitely, throughout their 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond.
Deep facial wrinkles tend to appear in the 30s and 40s. When you begin to notice them, it’s time to consider BOTOX injections.
Tucson BOTOX injections are designed specifically to treat dynamic wrinkles – or lines that emerge during facial expressions and disappear when the face is at rest.
More and more of our Tucson clients in their late 20s are approaching BOTOX as a preventative solution. By paralyzing the muscles that cause facial lines, the medication can reduce the likelihood that wrinkles in those areas will eventually develop.
When you arrive for your BOTOX in Tucson, you will be seated in a comfortable reclining chair. Dr. Larson will assess your wrinkles and ask you to make a series of facial expressions so that he can determine the appropriate locations for the medication.
No anesthesia will be necessary, though Dr. Larson can numb certain areas of your face if you have a low tolerance for pain. From there, he will inject the medication in strategic locations to smooth away wrinkles and lines, while preserving your ability to move your face naturally.
The entire BOTOX injection process will take about ten minutes to complete, at which point you will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine right away.
With no downtime required, BOTOX is a genuine “lunch-time” procedure. In other words, you can go about the rest of your day normally after your injections.
Your wrinkles will begin to appear less prominent within a few days, with the full results appearing in about four weeks. For most of our Tucson BOTOX clients, injections last about four months, at which point a follow-up session will be necessary to maintain your new, youthful look.
In addition to scheduling routine maintenance injections, there are a number of important steps you should take to protect your skin, prevent new wrinkles from appearing, and preserve your youthful appearance.
Typically, the results of Botox treatment will last for about three to four months.
If you stop taking Botox after taking it for a prolonged period, all that will happen is that your wrinkles and skin folds will gradually return.
