One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in spas and plastic surgery offices is BOTOX Cosmetic wrinkle relaxer. BOTOX is an injectable treatment that works deep in the skin layer to prevent or correct the formation of wrinkles. The procedure is a relatively quick treatment with little to no downtime afterwards. BOTOX is an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles, the type that form along areas of the face that crease and wrinkle due to the muscle contractions involved in facial expressions. Over time, as the skin loses elasticity, these repeated muscle contractions permanently crease the skin. With Botox, these muscle contractions are limited, which helps smooth the skin laying over the muscle. We have a very long list of services at Renovation Medical Spa in Reno, Nevada that will help each patient show their true skin with confidence and beauty. During each consultation, the patient's concerns, needs, and goals will help determine if BOTOX treatments by Nurse Practitioner Darian Thorp is the best course of action or if the patient is a better candidate for a facelift or other procedure by board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Charles P. Virden.
Medical Uses for BOTOX
BOTOX has more benefits than just firming the skin. Some people can’t help but use their brow muscles all the time, causing endless tension. The use of Botox injections can significantly reduce chronic tension migraines and headaches. BOTOX can also be used to treat facial asymmetry, muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and some eye disorders.

What to Expect
Prior to receiving a wrinkle relaxer like BOTOX, the injector will thoroughly assess a patient’s face to determine the correct dosage and the most appropriate site(s) to inject. BOTOX is administered through fine needles and treatments usually don’t require numbing. One treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes, depending on the patient’s condition. Treatments are usually needed every few months.
There’s no downtime associated with wrinkle relaxers, so patients can go about their normal routine after a treatment. Common side effects are a slight stinging sensation, mild redness, and swelling that may last up to 4 – 7 days after treatment. BOTOX results can last around 3 – 6 months as the muscles relax and the skin is able flatten. Patients should ask about when to schedule their next appointment to prevent their wrinkles from re-appearing.
