Botox® is a neuromodulator. When injected in small amounts in specific places, Botox weakens or paralyzes muscles by blocking the transmission of nerve signals.
El Paso Women’s Clinic is a primary care practice that takes medical care to the next level by offering services that address all of your health concerns. This includes aesthetic treatments like Botox, fillers, liposuction, and laser hair removal.
Health care providers use Botox to treat many conditions, including excessive sweating and chronic migraines. However, it’s best known for temporarily minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead.
The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic uses Botox to treat:
These wrinkles are called dynamic wrinkles. They develop because of age-related changes to your skin (loss of strength and elasticity due to a decrease in collagen production) and repeated facial expressions.
Botox temporarily stops the muscle movement under the skin that creates the lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a chance to relax and smooth out.
The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic customizes your Botox injection treatment plan to match your needs. They review your plan at your consultation so you know what to expect.
While you relax in the treatment chair, the team cleans your skin with an antiseptic agent. Then, they inject small amounts of Botox into specific areas of your face to get the desired results. You may need five or more injections.
Botox injections take only a few minutes and you can resume your normal routine after your session.
You may see improvements within a day or two after your Botox injections*. However, it can take up to 30 days before you see the full effects*.
Botox injections last three to four months* and you can repeat your injections as soon as you notice the effects wearing off. Regular Botox may prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic may include other cosmetic treatments along with your Botox, like fillers or microneedling with SkinPen®, so you can maximize your results.
