Of all the current medical treatments for facial lines and wrinkles, BOTOX injections are the best known by most people. Very effective for reducing the appearance of horizontal lines on the forehead, vertical lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet lines at the corners of the eyes, they account for over 6 million treatments at medical skincare clinics and MediSpas every year in the United States alone. At our Twin Cities medical spa in Wayzata, we offer BOTOX Cosmetic injections to our patients after a careful evaluation of each person. Years of experience and extensive training go into every treatment, along with an artistic eye and exceptional skill, to produce outstanding results and improved facial appearance.

Part of our professional responsibility is to inform those who trust us with their skin care about. We want you to have the facts you need to make the best decisions for yourself. On this website page and other pages here, you can learn more about BOTOX from Allergan and how it works to give you the smooth, youthful appearance you desire for your upper face. During a free consultation with you, we’ll provide you with additional information, including the cost of your treatment, what your improvements will be, what care you should take following the procedure, and what possible side affects you might experience.
Why Do Facial Lines Become More Distinct with Age
Your facial expressions, from smiling, frowning, squinting and other movements, result from the repeated movement of many muscles in your face. When you raise your eyebrows, muscle action causes horizontal lines on your forehead. When you frown or scowl, vertical lines form between your eyebrows. When you squint or smile, tiny lines are caused by muscle movements near your eye. Over the years, those lines become deeper and more visible, and can remain visible even when your face is relaxed. Repetitive movements form unique patterns of lines on everyone’s face and are part of every individual’s facial features. BOTOX Cosmetic injections, carefully administered by a medical professional can relax those muscles and minimize those lines.
What Is Botulinum Toxin?
The muscles that control facial movements and expressions, are controlled by a network of nerves on the face. Chemical signals from those nerves cause the muscles to contract and relax. BOTOX, which is a type of neurotoxin derived from a bacterium, can block those signals when injected precisely into those muscles. Botulinum toxin is a powerful and potentially dangerous agent. Allergan, the maker of BOTOX Cosmetic carefully isolates a specific type of that toxin, type A, and precisely dilutes it. Every batch is tested individually before being sold. Extremely tiny amounts of the toxin are used for cosmetic purposes, and this drug is approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. After being injected into the facial muscles, it effectively inhibits muscle contractions and lets muscles relax. The result is a dramatically reduced appearance of lines and wrinkles. Those effects become fully evident after less than a week, and can last for three to four months. The treatment can then be repeated.
How Much Do BOTOX Injection Treatments Cost?
Depending on what area of your upper face will be treated, different amounts of this drug are required. Treating horizontal lines on the forehead requires multiple tiny injections and uses more units of BOTOX than treatment of vertical lines, often called the 11s, between the eyebrows. Treatments of crows’ feet at the corners of the eyes uses the least number of units. We’ll give you an accurate price quote for your unique treatment plan during your free consultation. The actual injections cause very little discomfort, due to the tiny needle used and the small amount injected. Within a week or so, you’ll see the full effect, and results will last for three to four months. Repeating the treatment renews the results. BOTOX Cosmetic injections are not typically covered by health insurance, but the patients we treat almost always consider the improvements to be more than worth the modest cost.
How Many Injections Do You Need?
The structure of facial muscles in the forehead, between the eyebrows and near the corners of the eye is complex. To achieve an ideal cosmetic appearance requires great skill, extensive training, vast experience and an esthetic eye. That’s why choosing the right medical professionals for your treatments is essential. Experience counts, as does a thorough knowledge of muscle structure and professional medical training. Only after a detailed, thorough evaluation of each patient can a plan be created for the exact number and placement of injections to achieve optimal results. When administered in a medical spa like our convenient facility near Lake Minnetonka, and by a professional nurse with years of experience in these procedures, BOTOX wrinkle treatments are highly effective, safe, and give you the improved appearance that helps you look your best.
Why Does Injection Precision Matter?
BOTOX is a powerful medical treatment that requires careful planning and proper technique. If too little BOTOX is used, the effects will not provide the desired results. If too much BOTOX is injected or if injections are not properly placed, the treatment can cause an unnatural doll-like appearance of the face that will not subside for months. Every person’s face and muscular structure is unique, so each treatment plan must be customized to achieve ideal improvements. That’s why it’s so important to trust your facial appearance only to highly skilled, experienced medical professionals if you are considering BOTOX injections. Claudia Miller, a professional nurse at our conveniently located skin care clinic, has years of training and experience, and gives each patient an individual evaluation and precise treatment plan that will produce the optimal results.
While BOTOX is the treatment of choice for most lines and wrinkles in the upper third of the face, it is not commonly used elsewhere on the face. That’s because its action on the nerves and muscles could result in unwanted effects. For lines, folds and wrinkles around the mouth and nose, the use of hyaluronic acid gel cosmetic fillers, like Allergan’s JUVEDERM XC fillers, is recommended. They do not affect muscle movement. Instead they are injected to replace lost volume under the lines, smoothing the face and improving appearance. We can combine both types of treatment for a complete makeover. This can also reduce the total cost of your treatments, through discounted pricing. In your free consultation with Claudia Miller, we’ll create a total treatment plan that is ideal for your goals and budget.
