BOTOX® Cosmetic in Scottsdale, AZ

Procedures ( View All )


Each time you look at your face in a mirror, do you feel troubled by wrinkles or fine lines developing on your forehead and near your eyes? Referred to as dynamic lines and wrinkles, these skin issues appear as a result of continuous expressions, like squinting, frowning, and smiling. As we start to age, these lines and wrinkles eventually remain and can make us appear tired-looking. With BOTOX Cosmetic treatments, you can temporarily minimize the development of moderate to severe Crow's feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead creases. BOTOX is a specialized type A strain of botulinum toxin. It works to temporarily relax the muscles that assist with those movements, allowing the skin to smooth itself over time. At Forma Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons are thrilled to perform BOTOX injections as a nonsurgical option to help patients obtain a younger-looking, rejuvenated complexion. We encourage you to reach out to our group in Scottsdale, AZ for more information about BOTOX treatments!

What are the benefits of BOTOX?

Not many people are ready or interested in plastic surgery to address common signs of aging. Cosmetic injectables like BOTOX are an excellent alternative for these patients! BOTOX treatments can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to enhance your natural beauty without the need for incisions or downtime. Forma Plastic Surgery is proud to offer this versatile treatment in Scottsdale, AZ, and can create personalized treatment plans to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Who is a candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX can reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and other well-known wrinkles. Ideal candidates for BOTOX want to look and feel younger but are not ready for an invasive procedure to feel better about their appearance. Eligible candidates are in good health and are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Our surgeons will ask about your problem areas and goals to see if you are a good candidate for BOTOX. If you are not eligible for BOTOX, we can develop an alternative treatment plan to help you achieve your desired results.

What to Expect with BOTOX

Men and women who prefer a noninvasive alternative to soften frown lines, Crow's feet, or forehead wrinkles may be ideal candidates for BOTOX at Forma Plastic Surgery. These treatments work well if you want to reduce the appearance of prominent glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that may lead to an older-looking appearance. BOTOX has increased in popularity with younger women and men, as well. While younger adults in their 20s and 30s might not exhibit the signs of aging, we can administer BOTOX as a preventive option to stave off the normal aging process by temporarily decreasing the development of facial wrinkles.

When you come in for a consultation, we will perform a skin evaluation to determine which areas require treatment. Given that we provide BOTOX during a fast, in-office procedure, your injections can usually be completed during the same appointment. We begin by marking the injection sites, then administering the formula into your brow or face with a fine-gauge needle. The treatment itself takes about 5 – 10 minutes to complete, and the majority of people experience only mild discomfort. At the end of your session, you are welcome to get right back to your day.

You might experience some bruising, redness, and swelling in the injection sites after your procedure, but this should not last long. Your technician might suggest that you avoid vigorous exercise and not touch the injection sites for about a day or so. Over the next 2 – 3 days, you will begin to experience firmer, smoother skin. BOTOX injections offer up to four months of natural-looking, youthful aesthetic improvements for most men and women.


How many BOTOX units/injections will I likely need?
The number of BOTOX treatments needed will vary based on individual concerns and the severity and depth of your facial wrinkles. Our team will determine the ideal quantity of BOTOX units according to your targeted cosmetic desires and whether you prefer to address the forehead, brow area, or Crow's feet. Our team may recommend receiving BOTOX treatments every few months at Forma Plastic Surgery to maintain your results.

Can I have BOTOX with additional cosmetic procedures?
BOTOX typically pairs well with other nonsurgical solutions at Forma Plastic Surgery for individuals who wish to reduce signs of aging. If you have more pronounced and extensive facial wrinkles and creases, our team may suggest incorporating a filler to help you achieve smoother outcomes. To further enhance a younger-looking appearance, we may provide additional complementary treatments, such as microneedling or chemical peels.

Is there a difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Even though wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX, are used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily preventing muscle contractions, fillers are a separate category of cosmetic injections that improve volume in the face. Dermal fillers are designed to plump sunken areas and soften static wrinkles. Our skilled team can ascertain whether you would be a good candidate for a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM®) to enhance your BOTOX outcomes further.

How long does BOTOX last?
The effects of BOTOX generally last between 3 to 6 months. During this period, the treated muscles remain relaxed, making your skin smoother. As time passes, muscle action returns, leading to the reappearance of wrinkles or lines. To maintain the desired look, you'll likely need follow-up treatments.

Are BOTOX injections painful?
BOTOX injections are generally not considered painful, although you may feel a slight pinch or discomfort during the procedure. The needles used are very fine, which minimizes the sensation. Some people describe it as a quick sting that lasts just a few seconds. Topical anesthetics can also be applied to ease any discomfort.

What should I refrain from following BOTOX injections?
After getting BOTOX injections, it's advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and excessive sun or heat exposure for at least 24 hours. These precautions help minimize the risk of side effects like bruising or swelling. Additionally, try not to rub or massage the treated area, as this could cause the BOTOX to spread to unintended muscles.
