Incorporating Botox® Into Your Regular Beauty Routine

Lines, wrinkles, and creases are a natural part of the aging process and largely controlled by your genetics. Though you can’t change your genes, there are other factors that influence your aging skin you can change. 

Botox® is a cosmetic injection that makes the wrinkles on your skin soften and relax. Though the results are temporary, incorporating Botox into your regular beauty routine may prolong the anti-aging benefits. 

Our board-certified dermatologists at Associated Skin Care Specialists in Maple Grove, Fridley, Eden Prairie, and Coon Rapids, Minnesota, want you to know how easy it is to make Botox a regular part of your beauty regimen.  

Botox is quick and effective

One of the reasons why Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States is because it’s so quick and effective. Sometimes referred to as the lunchtime treatment, we only need a few minutes to perform your Botox injections.

We use a very thin needle and place only a small amount of the neurotoxin, so pain is minimal and fleeting. Though results vary, you may start to notice an improvement in your look 24 to 48 hours after your injections. 

No downtime

Another reason Botox is so popular and so easy to incorporate into your beauty routine is that there’s no need for downtime after your injections. Yes, you may notice some facial redness, but you can cover up any of these marks with makeup.

The only request we have is that you skip any strenuous workout for at least two hours to prevent bruising. We also advise you don’t massage the area where we placed your Botox injections. 

Natural, subtle results

Though Botox is very popular, many people have concerns that Botox injections may make them look plastic, fake, or expressionless. When being treated by our Botox experts, you don't need to worry about getting unnatural results.

Our dermatologists know exactly where to place the injections, providing subtle results that look very natural.

Prolonged benefits with repeated injections

Botox is FDA-approved to temporarily minimize moderate to severe crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Botox isn’t a permanent solution for wrinkles and the effects tend to wear off within three to four months. However, incorporating Botox into your regular beauty routine may prolong the anti-aging effects.

Botox works by stopping the movement of the muscles that cause your skin to fold and create wrinkles. Like any other muscle, lack of activity causes it to weaken and thin, which may help keep the wrinkles away a bit longer.
