Wrinkles, crow's feet, and other fine lines naturally form around your lips and eyes as you get older. These signs of aging are unavoidable, but that doesn't mean you can't be proactive about your appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic injections use FDA-approved botulinum toxin to relax facial muscles, smoothing out your skin. You'll achieve a more youthful look after a single appointment at our Albuquerque, NM, dental office

Factors to Consider Before BOTOX

Good Overall Health 

Though side effects are rare, patients must be in good overall health before receiving botulinum toxin injections to minimize the risk of complications after treatment. 

Age 

Though BOTOX can soften wrinkles for older patients, the best results are often achieved when patients start BOTOX treatment in their late 20s or early 30s. BOTOX Cosmetic is not recommended for those under age 18. 

Healthy Skin

If your skin is suffering from injuries or an infection, you will have to wait for your skin to heal before receiving an injection. Receiving BOTOX while dealing with a skin infection can make your condition worse. 

Allergies

You should disclose any allergies you have to Dr. Adams before receiving an injectable, even if you don't think your allergies will be affected by BOTOX. Dr. Adams will also review your medical history before administering any injectables. 

Pregnancy

BOTOX Cosmetic injections are not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing. 

Realistic Expectations 

While BOTOX Cosmetic can noticeably enhance your appearance, patients should be aware that injectables have limits and are not a fix-all solution for facial concerns. 



Sagging Skin?

Consider Fillers


Not only do wrinkles and lines appear as we age, but our skin can also lose its plumpness and begin to sag. Our practice offers JUVÉDERM®, a filler with hyaluronic acid that can replenish lost volume in your face and lips. The effects of this dermal filler can last up to a year. 

 

What to Expect  During Injectables Treatment

Preparation

Before coming to our Albuquerque location, you should avoid alcohol, tobacco, and anti-inflammatory medications. Consuming any of these items before your injection can cause bleeding and bruising. 

Numbing

BOTOX and JUVÉDERM create minimal pain. However, numbing cream or an ice pack can be used to further decrease any pain. 

Injections 

Dr. Adams will inject BOTOX or your dermal filler with a very fine needle in targeted areas. Administering the treatment should only take 10 to 20 minutes. 

Results 

The results of BOTOX are usually noticeable within two to three days after the procedure. The effects of the injectables last about three to six months.

Potential Side Effects  From BOTOX Injections 

BOTOX Cosmetic is considered a safe procedure by a majority of doctors and has few side effects. However, like any procedure, there are some potential side effects. This is why it's important to disclose your medical history with Dr. Adams before receiving treatment. 

You may experience some mild side effects that should subside within a few days after leaving our practice. They include:

  • Headache
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Temporary drooping in the face
  • Nausea 

If you experience blurred vision, paralysis outside of the injection site, or difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking, contact our Albuquerque, NM, office immediately. 

Getting the Most From Your Results 

Sunscreen 

Excessive exposure to sunlight can reduce the effectiveness of BOTOX treatment. Wearing sunscreen daily will protect your skin and help you maintain a youthful appearance. 

Skincare

Developing a skincare routine will enhance the results of your injectables. You should abstain from using scrubs, masks, and abrasive cleansers for at least a week after your treatment.

Routine Appointments

Since the effects of BOTOX last between three and six months, patients should schedule regular appointments with Dr. Adams at our Albuquerque office to prolong the effects of their treatment.
