Botox Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. At Essential Aesthetics & Wellness MedSpa, we specialize in expert Botox treatments designed to reduce wrinkles, rejuvenate your face, and enhance your natural beauty. Botox is highly effective in reducing wrinkles, particularly in areas like the forehead, crow’s feet, and frown lines. By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox smooths out these lines for a more youthful appearance.
What is Botox Cosmetic and How Does it Work?
Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes muscle contractions. It’s injected into specific facial muscles to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by preventing muscle movement.
Botox treatments at Essential Aesthetics & Wellness MedSpa offer several benefits, including:
Benefits of Botox Cosmetic Treatments:
- Smoother, wrinkle-free skin
- Non-invasive and virtually painless
- Quick procedure with no downtime
- Natural-looking results
BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first wrinkle relaxer approved by the FDA. While it has primarily been used to treat frown and worry lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic can also:
- Reshape a square jaw
- Lift mouth corners
- Raise and level droopy brows
- Drop an encroaching “witch’s chin”
- Smooth neck bands
Fortunately, there are a variety of minimally invasive treatments that can temporarily reverse the signs of aging caused by facial muscle contractions. Dr. Kanika Govil MD can comprehensively treat these wrinkles and frown lines with quick-acting injectables, commonly referred to as wrinkle relaxers.
The aging process impacts everyone differently and as a result, your skin rejuvenation treatment plan must be tailored to your unique individual needs. The best way to determine whether wrinkle relaxers will achieve your goals is to speak with Dr. Govil in person.

How Long Does it Take to Recover from Wrinkle Relaxers?
Wrinkle relaxers are essentially no-downtime. Most people feel comfortable returning to work immediately, though we may ask that you not resume activity like heavy lifting and strenuous exercise.
Slight temporary swelling, redness, and bruising are all common after injectable treatment. However, these side effects are few and in short order you’ll be enjoying a more wrinkle-free appearance.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You only need one wrinkle relaxer treatment to get results, though it may take a couple of weeks to see final result.
Safe and well-tolerated, wrinkle relaxers can be injected into multiple treatment areas during a single session: the more sites that are treated, the more profound the final results. During your initial consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists, we will listen to your concerns, assess your problem areas, and decide where treatment is necessary for optimal results.
How Long do Wrinkle Relaxers Last?
We offer BO**OX® Cosmetic that lasts for three to four months.
Your results will gradually fade as time passes, and issues like wrinkles or that bit of brow asymmetry will return. Routinely scheduled maintenance treatments keep improvements ongoing.
Are There Any Risks?
Redness, bruising, and slight swelling at the injection site are common, although temporary, side effects of wrinkle relaxers. Some patients also experience a temporary feeling of heaviness or skin tightness in the treatment area. These sensations self-correct within a few weeks.
Serious side effects are rare but may include headache, ptosis, nose and throat irritation, blurred vision, and general muscle weakness. We will provide additional information about potential risks during your initial consultation to ensure you are selecting the best option.
What is the Difference Between Wrinkle Relaxers and Dermal Fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers interrupt the signal between nerves and muscles to prevent tension. This allows dynamic wrinkles – those that occur with facial movement – to relax and smooth, making wrinkle relaxers ideal for crow’s feet, bunny lines, frown lines, and lip lines.
Dermal fillers replace volume loss and can stimulate collagen and elastin production to “refill” to areas of the face that have become sunken or droopy. Fillers are best for static wrinkles – those that are always present – such as on the cheeks or next to the mouth. Fillers can also add volume to tear troughs, temples, and, depending on the formulation, to other areas such as the lips and the back of the hands.
