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. BOTOX is performed in our Virden MD practice next door. 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.
"Dr. Virden and his staff are amazing!! They make you feel like part of the family. My daughter had half of her nose bit off by a German Shepherd and Virden and Talbot performed the reconstructive surgery on her nose. Right after surgery I was amazed that her whole nose was in place. There was scarring and swelling but she had a complete nose again. They are absolutely the best, top notch, plastic surgeons office in the area and miles around. If your searching for Botox and or fillers they are the best at that too!!! Results that last!!"- J.P. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2013
"Dr. Virden and all the staff there treat you like family! He and Dr. Talbott (when she was there) fixed my daughters nose. A German Shepherd had bit half of it off. They performed the surgery and immediately after her nose looked completely normal. You never would have been able to tell anything happened. Of course there was scarring but her nose was a complete nose again! They are amazing! I love them! They are the best!! After that experience I myself saw them for some botox and/ or Juvederm. Top notch! Never a problem and always looked great! Top of the line!"- Google User / Google / Dec 06, 2013
"I cannot express how highly I recommend Dr. Virden and his team to others. Their professionalism is only overshadowed by their kindness, bedside manner and ability to put you at ease immediately. You end up feeling more like family than a patient. I recently had to undergo breast implant removal (20 year old implants, under the muscle), reconstruction and breast life. I am 46 years old - and have to say, not even in my 20s or with implants have they looked better! I was very concerned of the surgery - as I have an autoimmune disorder, but again, Dr. Virden and his team, took excellent care of me. I have healed perfectly, quickly and with relatively low amount of pain. I am also a client of the Renovation Spa for facials and botox treatment - they are the best! If you live in the area - or if you are out of town - this is the place you want to be to look and feel your best!!"- T.V. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2015
"I started coming here for Botox a few years ago. I was starting to look a little tired at 36 and wanted to look "refreshed" not overdone. I was incredibly nervous, but Darci was so gentle and put me at ease. The results were phenomenal. After some time, they increased their prices due to Allergan increasing their costs. My budget was tight, so I began searching for a cheaper Botox. BIG mistake! I ended up paying more, the Botox wasn't placed right, it seemed diluted more than it should, and I never achieved the results I wanted. Bottom line: Botox is expensive! Botox can't reverse aging, but it can make you look more rejuvenated. It works for me, I highly recommend this office."- K.L. / Yelp / May 09, 2016
"I had several surgical procedures done by Dr. Virden and it all came out better than I had even hoped for. His staff is pleasant and friendly and I'd like to give a big thank you to Rosa. I will go back again for any further maintenance. They are a full service medical spa and their Botox injector is the best I have ever gone to."- M.R. / Yelp / Apr 23, 2017
The best candidates for BOTOX wrinkle relaxer treatments:
- Have moderate to severe dynamic lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows (frown lines), or on the forehead

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.
