Wave Goodbye to Wrinkles
With BOTOX® Injections in Anchorage
You deserve to feel confident and happy with your skin, but years of making facial expressions can lead to wrinkles, creases, and fine lines. BOTOX® injections are an effective, non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of wrinkles or preventing them from happening in the first place. Our professional BOTOX® injectors in Anchorage can help you maintain your youthful complexion or reduce signs of aging for a more confident, beautiful you.
Prevent Facial Wrinkles With BOTOX® Injections
BOTOX® addresses facial wrinkles by blocking nerve signals from reaching your muscles, which prevents them from contracting. By limiting movement in your face, BOTOX® effectively prevents wrinkles caused by facial expressions and keeps you looking younger for longer.
BOTOX® is a targeted treatment that can be applied to the specific areas where you want to see improvement. Here are just a few of the common cosmetic problems these injections can help treat:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
- Tear trough
- Hooded eyes
- Forehead creases
- Chin dimpling
- Jawline slimming
- Lipstick lines
Is BOTOX® Right for You?
Our clinicians at Elevate can help you choose the best cosmetic treatment for your aesthetic goals. If your main goal is to minimize dynamic wrinkles and deep creases caused by years of smiling and frowning, BOTOX® injections are an effective option. Injected into targeted areas of the face, you can enhance problem areas within a couple of days without surgery.
Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX® does not restore facial volume or plump your lips and skin. However, BOTOX® and Juvéderm injections can often be used simultaneously to rejuvenate your skin and enhance your overall look. Additionally, BOTOX® is a temporary treatment producing results that typically last three to four months. To maintain your results and prevent more wrinkles from developing, we recommend repeating treatment every 12 to 16 weeks.
What To Expect for BOTOX® Treatment
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment. In most cases, the injections only take about 10 to 15 minutes to perform. You’ll be asked to refrain from certain substances and medications in the weeks leading up to your appointment, including alcohol, blood thinners, and any anti-inflammatories.
On the day of your procedure, we’ll take you back to our comfortable cosmetic treatment area and answer any questions you might have. We’ll administer a series of small injections in the areas you want to treat. You might feel a slight pinch with each injection, but the injections require a small needle and only cause slight discomfort.
Following your appointment, you can likely return to work and other everyday activities with some moderation. It’s recommended that you refrain from lying down for at least three hours and avoid vigorous activity for the first 24 hours after BOTOX® injections. You’ll also need to avoid wearing a hat, headband, or anything else that might put pressure on the treatment area.
It’s common to experience minimal side effects, such as swelling or bruising where you were injected. While rarer, you may also get a headache, have dry eyes, or feel flu-like symptoms in the days following the treatment. If you notice problems with your vision or are struggling to speak, breathe, or swallow, call your doctor right away.
