Cosmetic Injectables

At Meliora Integrative Medicine in Evanston, IL, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment for patients who want to feel and look their best.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Botulinum Toxin, a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium A, can relax the muscles on areas of the face which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

How It Works

The treatment process begins with an initial consultation to discuss your areas of concern and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. We will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice your frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines temporarily look better

What To Expect

The treatment area will be numbed with either ice or a topical numbing cream. Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.The entire procedure itself takes a couple of minutes and there is virtually no downtime afterwards.You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 30 days, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines

What It Treats

Along with smoothing existing wrinkles, Botox treatments can prevent the formation of new wrinkles that come with age. Botox is also safe for all people of all skin types and ages, so anyone can undergo these treatments.
