What It Is
Botox is an injectable which allows precise targeting of the areas that make you look stressed and tired. It’s the only FDA-approved treatment for forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Botox is an established and trusted solution for the lines and wrinkles that give you the appearance of aging.
How It Works
Botox directly targets one of the underlying causes of fine lines and dynamic wrinkles — the muscle contractions in the face. Fine lines appear from frowning and squinting repeatedly over the years. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract during facial expressions. When the muscle contraction is relaxed, the skin is less likely to form fine lines and wrinkles.
What To Expect
This simple but effective treatment will help keep you looking fresh and youthful. You will start to the see the benefits of Botox within a week of your treatment, and you will see the effects for up to 4 months or more. The lines caused by facial expression will disappear, and deep wrinkles will slowly fade. Botox works best to help prevent these wrinkles from ever developing.

How long does a Botox injection treatment take?
Depending on where and how much product we are injecting, the process will take 10-20 minutes. There is also a consultation period that takes place beforehand to ensure your goals are understood and questions are answered.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
The medical professionals at Fusion are master injectors with years of experience. You can trust that when your Botox treatments are finished, you will still look like yourself—only younger and with less noticeable lines.
How many injections will I receive?
No two patients, or their Botox treatments, are exactly the same. The Botox specialists at Fusion will customize your treatment plan according to your goals and needs. Depending on your areas of concern and the depth of the wrinkles we are addressing, we will be able to make a recommendation for how much Botox is needed to treat you.
Can I use Botox to get rid of wrinkles not caused by facial expressions?
No. Botox specifically works by relaxing muscles, however, hope is not lost for your other wrinkles! At Fusion Medical Center, we frequently combine Botox treatments with other injectables like fillers—which work by plumping those pesky non-dynamic wrinkles from below, effectively “popping” them out. Be sure to ask your specialist about pairing your treatments with fillers!
Do Botox treatments hurt?
Some patients report feeling a pinch during their Botox injections. We have topical anesthetics on-site to aid in any discomfort you may be concerned about feeling.
Is there any downtime after receiving injections? What are the reported side effects?
Botox injections require minimal downtime – you are free to return to your daily routine immediately following treatment. Possible side effects reported by patients following their injections include light swelling or bruising, itching, and headaches.
Are men candidates for Botox injections?
Absolutely! Any healthy adult over the age of 18 can benefit from Botox injections (though people younger than the age of 25 typically do not have any worrisome lines yet). We regularly treat men who are dissatisfied with the appearance of wrinkles and lines around their eyes, mouth, and forehead
How Botox Works
Many of us are frustrated by the lines and wrinkles on our face. These lines are a result of decades of smiling, frowning, and making other expressions.
Botox uses neurotoxins that attach to the muscles that cause wrinkles, temporarily restricting contractions.
In the days that follow your Botox treatment, watch your dynamic wrinkles and lines begin to fade!
We recommend regular Botox maintenance treatments every 3-6 months to sustain your youthful glow.
