BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical treatment that can smooth wrinkles within a few days. One ten-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – and there’s a dramatically noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, on the forehead, and around the corners of the eyes – wrinkles that develop over time as we age. The result – a face that looks younger and more tranquil – is temporary but can last up to four months.

At Venus Medical Spa, Dr. Clark has training in other advanced BOTOX®Cosmetic injection techniques such as liquid brow lifts, treatments for lines across the nose, “crow’s feet”,  lip lines, and drooping lip corners. 

Venus Medical Spa  also uses BOTOX® Cosmetic® in combination with dermal fillers to give the face a “liquid lift” for a smoother, more youthful and rested appearance that can take years off the face. Allergan, the makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic, have recognized Dr. Clark’s skills as a physician and named him a Silver Provider of BOTOX® Cosmetic. 

The Botox injection takes about 10 to 15 minutes. On average, patients see full results within 7 to 10 days. You can resume most normal activities immediately, but we suggest avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours and a few other minor restrictions. Botox’s results usually last 3 to 4 months, but results will vary from patient to patient.

Whatever your aesthetic needs, Botox® is a very safe procedure. Depending upon your own metabolism and receiving regular treatments it can last for (3) months or longer. Our individualized treatments are nearly painless and take particular attention not to cause bruising and look natural. See for yourself why we are the “experts” concerning Botox® and why we give results and not just treatments.®

The most common areas treated are:

  • Glabella — the area in between the eyebrows

  • Forehead

  • Crow’s Feet – the areas near the eyes and temples

  • Eyebrow Lift

  • Wrinkles on the Nose (Bunny Lines)

Why Botox to treat wrinkles?

Plain and simple – it works! It’s quick, painless and gives results with no daily upkeep. Treatment usually takes about 5 minutes and results last anywhere between 3-4 months.

Is there down time?

After treatment there is essentially no downtime! There is no surgery and no recovery time. Injection sites may be red for a few minutes and small bruises occur in very few patients. We advise patients not to lie down for the first few hours after treatment.

Does it hurt?

Patients report treatment about a 1-2 on the 1-10 pain scale and feels like a quick pinch. The needles used are very small, 3/8 of an inch (the same size as an insulin needle).

Will my face look “frozen”?

No. We aim to reduce and rid wrinkles when you make a “mean-face,” scowl face, etc. Treatment will not rid you of the ability to make those expressions. We consult with you before treatment and talk about your personal skin care goals.

How much does it cost?

Cost is dependent on your skin care goals and what or how many areas you would like treated. Cost is also affected by the severity of wrinkles.

I have more wrinkle concerns such as: marionette lines around my mouth, lines around my lips, and thin lips, is there anything to help those areas?

Yes! Different from neurotoxin injections, dermal fillers literally “fill” those areas that have lost tissue volume. Laser treatments, Collagen Induction Therapy and chemical peels are also used to soften or remove wrinkles that are already present.
