BOTOX: A Trusted Solution for Wrinkles

Botox is considered the gold standard for treating wrinkles and fine lines.

Nearly 11 million Botox vials have been sold in the United States since the FDA approved its use as a cosmetic wrinkle injection in 2002. Today, Botox is the best-selling product in the world of its kind.

Dr. Lucas Bryant is a dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon that specializes exclusively in the art of aesthetics. He offers Botox in Nashville at Refine Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a brand name for a type of neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. It works by safely and temporarily paralyzing the activity of specific facial muscles that lie below the wrinkled skin. This allows the skin to relax and have a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance.

What are the Benefits of BOTOX? Botox is a painless and long-lasting solution to address the following skin aging concerns:

  • Frown lines (also called 11 lines)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow's feet around the eyes
  • Bunny lines (wrinkles or fine lines that appear on either side of the nose)
  • Lip Flip (to create a more voluptuous appearance of the lips)
  • Jawline slimming with masseter muscle injections
  • Microbotox to lift the eyebrows & corners of the mouth

How Long Does Botox Take to Start Working? Botox starts working to soften your facial expressions and stop unwanted facial muscle movement upon injection.

However, it takes a short time to start seeing results. Most patients notice fine lines and wrinkles softening about four days after the procedure. This is not the final result — It takes about 10 to 14 days for the full effects from your BOTOX injections to become visible.

How Long Do Botox Results Last?

Patients can enjoy about three months of wrinkle-free skin. The skin-smoothing effect of Botox gradually wears away, and the skin returns to its pre-treated condition. When you notice wrinkles returning, this is an excellent time to see Dr. Bryant for a touch-up of BOTOX in Nashville.

What Should I Expect during My Botox Treatment?  It takes just minutes to perform a short series of BOTOX injections.

Dr. Bryant discusses your skin aging concerns and what you’d like to change about your skin. 

He then will ask you to make a series of facial expressions to exaggerate the present facial wrinkles. This helps your physician determine the muscles that must be treated to produce the desired smooth skin.

Afterward, your BOTOX in Nashville is strategically placed in areas of the face with expression lines and wrinkles.

Botox is usually injected in the following areas:

  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Eyebrow furrows (also called frown lines or 11 lines)

We highly recommend starting or maintaining a good skin care regimen as this is an anti-aging strategy. We carry some of the best skin care lines and can help you select the best regimen for your skin type and goals.

What to Expect After BOTOX Injections?

Botox is a minimally invasive procedure, so there is no downtime or recovery period. For this reason, it is considered a ‘lunchtime treatment.’ The injection site may appear slightly red for up to a few hours after treatment, but there is no reason you can’t go about your normal daily activities after leaving the appointment.

Minor swelling at the injection site is also common. This tends to subside in about an hour or so. You may be advised to avoid strenuous exercise and NSAID pain relievers. You should also avoid massaging or applying pressure to the treated area for the first 24 hours.
