This treatment is sought for good reason. It can help prevent wrinkles from worsening and restore a more youthful appearance in a quick, in-office procedure, with no downtime.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a highly diluted form of botulinum toxin type A, a neuromuscular toxin. This injectable product has been proven safe, and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for smoothing frown lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet. It is frequently used in conjunction with plastic surgery procedures to maximize results.
How Does BOTOX Work?
Scowl lines and crow’s feet – wrinkles in the areas of the forehead and the eyes – form because of muscle movement of facial expressions. BOTOX blocks signals from the nerve to the muscle, so the muscle can no longer contract. This treatment temporarily relaxes the muscles causing lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother skin and a refreshed appearance. Results typically last for several months.
Our Utah BOTOX treatment takes only a few minutes, and no anesthesia is required. Dr. Rose’s gentle technique is a critical factor in minimizing discomfort and bruising with this procedure. He uses tiny needles to perform BOTOX injections, and with any BOTOX treatment, the hand behind the needle is the most important issue. Targeting the right muscles, and careful use of the product will smooth your face, without giving you a frozen, unnatural look. When injected correctly, you can attain a chemical brow lift which opens the eyes and turns back the clock.
Injections are strategically placed for maximum benefit. The number of injections and quantity of BOTOX used will depend on the condition being addressed, the area being treated, and your treatment goals. It typically takes 3 to 7 days for the full cosmetic benefits of BOTOX injections to take effect, and lasts for 3 to 4 months.
There is no downtime after a BOTOX treatment. You can return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure, but intense exercise is not recommended the day of. It is recommended that you avoid rubbing or massaging the treated areas after the procedure, as this could cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to other areas.
Cosmetic Benefits of BOTOX
BOTOX injections provide quick and effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles caused by environmental factors, stress, and aging. This treatment can be used to lift the brow and smooth frown lines on the forehead and creases between your brows that make you look older, tired, or even angry. BOTOX can help diminish the appearance of crow’s feet and wrinkles around the eyes to help create a more youthful, smoother, rejuvenated facial appearance.
Receiving BOTOX in Salt Lake City is known to be a very versatile cosmetic procedure, effective for treating more than lines in the forehead and around the eyes, with results that last for 3 to 4 months. It can also be used to:
- Treat bunny lines (tiny creases around the nose)
- Smooth lip lines
- Diminish neck bands
- Lift the corners of the mouth
- Correct a gummy smile (too much gum showing)
- Improve skin dimpling on the chin
Jaw contouring is a recently discovered cosmetic use for BOTOX. For patients who have overdeveloped masseter (jaw) muscles, BOTOX injections have been shown to reduce the size of the muscles, creating a more gently curved cheek and jaw and a more feminine, oval-shaped facial profile. Although there is no surgery and bone structure altered, reducing the thickness of the jaw muscles can noticeably refine the angle of the jaw.
BOTOX for Migraines
Dr. Rose understands that frequent, severe migraines can interfere with productivity and relationships and severely impact every aspect of life. He offers both surgical and non-surgical treatments for this debilitating condition.
BOTOX injections have been proven to provide significant relief for many patients suffering from migraines. A series of injections can reduce the frequency, duration and intensity of migraines for several months – without the side effects of migraine medications. Salt Lake City BOTOX treatments for migraines are successful in 92% of cases.
There are five different trigger sites for migraines, most of which are around the head and the neck. When muscles surrounding these trigger sites contract and compress the nerves, it can cause an excruciating migraine headache to kick in. BOTOX injections can temporarily paralyze the muscles surrounding the trigger sites, preventing compression of the nerves.
