WHAT IS BOTOX®

BILLINGS, MT

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a dermal filler that is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that is non surgical, Fda approved and no down time. When injected, BOTOX® Cosmetic actually stops the nerve signals from firing in your facial muscles. By stopping this firing, wrinkles will stop forming and the wrinkles that already exist will dissipate.

WHAT CAN BOTOX DO FOR ME?

Botox is a targeted and injected into your facial tissue. This will temporarily interrupt nerve signals to nearby muscles. By reducing muscle activity, BOTOX® Cosmetic can relieve fine lines and deep-set wrinkles on areas of the face such as:

  • Forehead
  • Between the eyebrows (frown lines)
  • The corners of the eyes (crow's feet)

The amount of Botox® is determined by our treatment provider based on their clinical judgment and guidelines.

​At Plush Skincare Studio sessions consists of one or more gentle injections with a thin needle. An injection appointment at our Billings spa takes roughly 10 to 15 minutes, and you'll be able to enjoy your new, youthful look for approximately four months.

  • Hyperhidrosis

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

The effects last approximately three months thereafter from a single treatment of BOTOX/ Dysport, resulting in the smoothing of your skin and the improvement of fine lines and superficial wrinkles in the area of your treatment. When the effects start wearing off, you will notice a very gradual fading of its effects. At this point you will return for your next treatment. BOTOX®/ Dysport has proven itself again and again in eliminating superficial lines and wrinkles. Patients report that during a course of treatment their lines seem to disappear and the skin regains its former smoothness. I tend to agree, I had slight horizontal forehead wrinkles and a vertical frown line forming but it's gone now.

  • Redness at the injection site
  • Minor swelling or bruising that will quickly dissipate

Most side effects are minimal and will go away within hours to 1-2 days, but the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic will be quickly noticed and are long-lasting, so they clearly outweigh the possible side effects.
