What is BOTOX?

At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, you can diminish the first signs of aging in the upper face with quick and effective BOTOX injectable treatments. BOTOX can also help younger adults delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our skilled team is pleased to provide BOTOX injectable treatments to our patients.

Made from a purified strain of botulinum toxin, BOTOX injections temporarily "freeze" the movements of your facial muscles, particularly expressions in the upper brow region. The creases that develop from these repetitive muscle movements are called "dynamic." Eventually, the dynamic wrinkles start to remain, even when your face is fully relaxed. BOTOX injectable treatments can dramatically decrease the appearance of these lines by reducing muscle movements and giving the tissue on top a chance to rejuvenate itself.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is a great treatment option for patients who want to diminish and soften the look of wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face. Also, BOTOX works well for patients who do not want to undergo surgery. Even if you do not have signs of aging, BOTOX is often used as a preventive, anti-aging treatment. Keep in mind how often you make facial expressions! This great nonsurgical treatment helps reduce obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. We can also use it to treat Crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience deeper lines, we may use a dermal filler instead. For older patients with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, a facelift may better help you attain your cosmetic goals. This procedure provides more dramatic and long-term results. If a facelift is your best treatment option, we will refer you to our recommended plastic surgeon, Dr. David Dreyfuss.

Our Injection Technique

At JEM Medspa, we complete BOTOX treatments in one of our private treatment rooms. After your consultation, we can usually perform the treatment on the same day. Before we place the injections, we will ask you to make different expressions using the upper face, such as squinting and frowning. This will allow us to properly mark the injection sites. Generally, BOTOX is placed in between the brows, on Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.

Once we have marked the injection sites, we will clean your face and administer BOTOX with a fine needle. To lessen discomfort, swelling, and bruising, a cold compress is applied right after your injections. If needed, patients can request a numbing cream that makes the procedure more comfortable. However, the numbing cream is usually not necessary. BOTOX injections take about 10 – 15 minutes to complete, and you can resume your day with no required recovery.

What to Expect

Right after your appointment, you can return to your regular activities, but you should avoid strenuous exercise for at least a day. Following your treatment, we suggest sleeping upright and to avoid touching your face, which may accidentally spread BOTOX to other areas. For the next few days, the treated sections of the face may look slightly bruised, swollen, or red. These symptoms should subside in the next few days, and you should not develop any serious side effects. If you do, please call our office as soon as possible. Typically, it takes around 5 – 7 days before you can see the final effects of BOTOX, and they should last about 3 – 4 months. To maintain your results, please speak to your injector about when to schedule follow-up appointments at JEM Medspa.
