About BOTOX

To assist in aging gracefully and preventing facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Artisan 57 Skin & Laser Center in Sioux Falls, SD is proud to offer BOTOX to our patients. This injectable provides younger-looking skin and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to static lines, which are made from expressive movements from the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. Our board-certified ophthalmologist surgeon Dr. Alison Tendler most commonly administers BOTOX between the eyebrows, on the "Crow's feet," and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is great for individuals who want to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventative treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a temporary solution for Crow's feet. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. 

Treatment Technique

BOTOX treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure conveniently in our office. If it is your first time to visit us for BOTOX, we often perform the injection at the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make different facial expressions within the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to plan where the injections will be placed. The treatment area will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by gentle compressions to help lessen swelling, bruising, and discomfort. BOTOX treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you are able to resume a normal routine.

What to Expect

After the injections, you can get back to your daily routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. The treated areas may be slightly bruised, swollen, immediately after the procedure, but you will not develop any serious or long-lasting side effects from injectable treatments. In many cases, it usually takes about 7 – 10 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. Those who get BOTOX for their first time are so happy and excited after seeing their results that we continue to see them every few months for touch-ups.
