What Is Botox?

Botox is a drug to reduce the appearance of wrinkles based on a neurotoxin created from a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum. Its name comes from that process; bo- (botulinum) -tox (toxin).

When injected into certain muscle groups, Botox causes these muscles in the face to relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles for several months. The success of Botox over the years has led to other companies producing similar neurotoxin-based wrinkle treatments to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles over time.

Why Do We Get Wrinkles Over Time?

Lisa Chevalier - SoVous Med Spa New York

As we age, our faces experience a loss of volume and elasticity. This natural decline is primarily attributed to the reduction of elastin and collagen in our skin, although there are other contributing factors. Lifestyle choices, genetics, and environmental factors all influence our facial appearance over time. The diminishing volume leads to skin sagging in places where volume loss is most noticeable.

This sagging results in the formation of static wrinkles, which are creases in the skin. On the other hand, dynamic wrinkles can be caused by repetitive muscle movements on less elastic skin. Typically, these wrinkles appear around the eyebrows, forehead, and eyes. The muscles tend to remain contracted, giving a perpetually angry or worried expression. By relaxing these muscles, the wrinkles gradually fade away.

At SoVous, we offer several neurotoxin-based wrinkle treatments for you to consider: Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport or Xeomin. Each treatment works as a nerve blocker to prevent contractions in targeted muscle groups in the face that cause wrinkles.

Rest assured that these treatments are FDA-approved and deliver similar results. However, they do vary in terms of how they are administered and how long each lasts. We highly recommend scheduling a consultation with our team to explore and learn more about the different treatment options, allowing you to make an informed decision based on your specific goals.

Botox Works

Botox harnesses the power of a purified, natural protein administered in small quantities to diminish muscle contractions responsible for wrinkles. This minimally invasive treatment is highly safe and effective.

Botox Treatment Areas

Botox effectively targets facial wrinkles and softens the appearance of various concerns:

"Marionette" lines. Marionette lines got their name from the dolls and wooden puppets that had dark lines along the sides of the nose and mouths where the lips opened and closed. These can also be called “nasolabial” lines. The New York Botox providers at SoVous can reduce the severity of these lines.

"Bunny" lines. Bunny lines tend to form in the areas around your nose when you scrunch up your face (to find them, wiggle your nose like a bunny the next time you’re in the mirror). Botox is a great solution to reduce those dynamic wrinkles.

"Smokers" lines. These lip lines around the mouth can make the lips look older, dehydrated, and less healthy. Botox can unlock these wrinkles and reduce this highly visible sign of aging.

"Turkey" neck. Turkey neck, characterized by platysmal bands, is a great fit for Botox! By targeting wrinkles in the area, Botox can create a nonsurgical version of a neck lift.

Hyperhidrosis. Botox is also a viable option for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in the hands and armpits. It can even prevent excessive foot sweating! Like for wrinkles, a single Botox treatment for hyperhidrosis can last for three to four months between touch-up visits.

While the duration of these effects may vary between patients, they generally last between three and four months, with subsequent Botox injections often yielding long-lasting results for our New York patients.

What does Botox treat?

Beyond its well-known cosmetic use, the FDA has cleared Botox injections for a variety of medical indications:

Am I a candidate
for Botox?

Candidates for Botox should be in general good health and not allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the other ingredients in Botox. As part of your visit to SoVous, we’ll review your beauty plan and make sure Botox is an appropriate fit for your needs.

Botox Treatment

Botox is a fairly quick procedure and the original “lunchtime” treatment. Most patients who get Botox can be in and out of their appointments in about an hour. During your treatment, our injectors will review your beauty plan and determine where you will need intervention. Our injector will thoroughly clean and examine each location before administering Botox. Once the injections are complete, you are free to return to most normal activities immediately.

Botox Recovery

While Botox treatments have little to no downtime, there are a few steps you can do to maximize your results after your treatment. Following Botox NYC patients should avoid laying down for at least four hours, wait for at least 24 hours before exercise or other strenuous activity, avoid using makeup near the injection site(s) for at least 24 hours, and avoid alcohol for at least a day. These tips will help keep the product from “migrating” and ensure you get the right results in the right places.

Botox Results

As your muscles relax and the Botox takes effect, you will see a gradual decrease in the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines near the treatment area. You should see your final results within three weeks of injection, though many of our patients say they see results much faster. Typically, NYC Botox patients return within three to four months of their first injections for follow-up treatments to ensure the best results over time.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

Your Botox session will depend on various factors, including the size of the treatment area, the number of areas treated, and the experience of your injector. Typically, the cost per Botox session ranges from $600 to $1,200, varying based on the factors mentioned above.

to Botox

At SoVous, we also offer Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau as alternatives to Botox. Jeuveau, Dysport, and Xeomin are all wrinkle reducers that work similarly to Botox Cosmetic to smooth dynamic wrinkles. Jeuveau focuses on reducing frown lines, also referred to as glabellar lines, which appear between the eyebrows. On the other hand, Dysport serves as a suitable alternative for individuals who have built up antibodies to Botox, resulting in reduced or ineffective outcomes. Dysport employs smaller proteins, less prone to antibody formation, with results typically lasting between three to four months. Xeomin is different from other products in that it does not carry typical proteins and is referred to as the “naked” botulinum product. Our New York Botox patients report results lasting anywhere from three to six months.

Botox vs. Dysport

Like Botox, Dysport is a neuromodulator that uses a botulinum toxin to eliminate dynamic wrinkles by causing the muscles that create them to rest. Without getting too bogged down in specifics, the two neuromodulators are very similar. Botox requires fewer units to get the same results compared to Dysport, due to differences in processing. Typically, our aesthetic specialists recommend trying Botox first, saving Dysport for cases where Botox is ineffective, or the patient has seen reduced Botox effectiveness over time.

Botox FAQs

Is Botox preventative?

Botox can be used preventatively to keep existing wrinkles from deepening, as well as slow the appearance of new wrinkles. By preventing the muscles responsible for creasing the skin from contracting in the same way, Botox reduces the ability of these muscles to create “dynamic wrinkles” from this repetition.

How long does Botox last?

In most cases, Botox treatments last around three to four months. This varies, depending on the nature of the treatment and the biology of the patient.

How long does it take to see the results from your Botox injections?

In most cases, NYC Botox patients will see results within two weeks, although some patients tell us they can see a difference within a few days.

Can I combine Botox with other cosmetic procedures?

Botox can typically be combined with certain other cosmetic procedures as part of your beauty plan. This will vary depending on the treatment location and the nature of the other procedures. During your consultation, our aesthetic specialists at SoVous Aesthetics will review your goals and see how we can best combine your treatments so you can get the results you want as quickly and as safely as possible.

Are there any side effects with Botox?

Side effects of Botox injections include irritation at the injection site, droopy eyelids, uneven eyebrows, dry eyes, headaches, flu-like symptoms, and dry eyes. SoVous Aesthetics is regarded among the most experienced New York Botox providers, which makes all the difference in ensuring your results.

Do Botox Injections hurt?

Most patients find Botox injections to be tolerable to painless. Some say it feels like a shot they would get at the doctor’s office, others like a bee sting. Our injection specialists know how to make the treatment process as comfortable as possible so you can get back to your day quickly and with minimal discomfort.
