If you’re considering treatment, this page is for you! Here you’ll find answers to the most commonly asked BOTOX questions we hear at Revive.

How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX and Dysport are injectables called neuromodulators or neurotoxins. They work by interrupting the signals from your brain telling specific muscles to contract. Less muscle movement means fewer “dynamic wrinkles”—the lines that form when you squint, frown, raise your eyebrows, and more.

While these injections do limit muscle movement, you don’t have to worry about looking “frozen” or unnatural. Skilled injectors like Dr. Stefanie Gatica and Revive’s team of highly trained providers know exactly where to place BOTOX and how much of it to inject to give you gorgeous results without overdoing it. Revive is in the top 1% of BOTOX providers nationwide, so you can trust you’re in exceptional hands.

What Does BOTOX Treat?

BOTOX is fantastic for treating wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements, such as:

  • Frown lines, or vertical “11s” between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines on the nose

BOTOX also treats gummy smiles and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). When injected into the masseter muscle in the jaw, it can also slim the jawline and reduce symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction).

Some wrinkles are better treated with injectable dermal fillers, which add volume to specific areas. Our clients often combine these treatments to complete their rejuvenated look.

What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?

BOTOX appointments typically take less than 20 minutes. We’ll start by bringing you back to a treatment room and having a thorough discussion about your current concerns and what you’re looking for. Your injector will work with you to create your own fully customized treatment plan.

After cleansing the treatment area, your injector will use a tiny needle to inject BOTOX directly into the targeted muscles. Most people say these injections just feel like a few quick pinches. After that, you’re on your way!

What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?

One of the biggest benefits of BOTOX is that it requires little to no recovery time. You may have a little redness around your injection sites for the next few hours, but this should subside on its own.

It’s best to hold off lying down, massaging the area, working out intensely, or doing activities that may increase blood flow to your head for the next several hours. This gives the product time to settle and prevents it from spreading to any other areas.

How Long Do BOTOX Results Last?

Your results will take a few days to appear and will last up to 4 months before naturally wearing off.

How Much Does BOTOX Cost?

At our dermatology clinic and med spa in Ankeny, BOTOX is priced per unit. Your total cost will depend on the number of units injected. We will go over your costs with you during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect in terms of pricing.
