BOTOX® injections involve using a diluted blend of botulinum to smooth features, generally for wrinkles in the face area. If the muscles that are used to make facial expressions are partially paralyzed, the face can't make those expressions and wrinkles can't form. We offer BOTOX® at our Colorado Springs center that will help diminish the wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Our treatments can make you look younger, without the plastic look that other treatments can create. Call us in Colorado Springs today for more info.

Getting BOTOX® Injections in Colorado Springs
Years ago, medical aesthetics professionals noticed that botulinum toxin can be used for cosmetic purposes, specifically to diminish glabellar lines, the lines that appear between the eyebrows. However, in addition to aesthetic issues, we also offer BOTOX® injections in Colorado Springs for pain relief. Because it interferes with the release of pain and inflammatory mediators, it can also be used to help diminish the effects of severe headaches. The effects of BOTOX® treatments wear off over time, but can be maintained by coming for injections at our Colorado Springs office every three to six months.
BOTOX® Treatments Available in Colorado Springs
Though most of our patients in Colorado Springs don't report feeling much pain during procedures, anesthesia is always an option that is available. Our medical professionals use a thin needle for BOTOX® injections. It is best not to rub the area for 24 hours, in order to keep the injection in place. It might take up to four days for the effects to kick in, and the full results should be apparent within two weeks. Treatments don't last forever, but we offer maintenance shots that you can get in Colorado Springs every three to six months.
