Why Botox Injections
Botox is a great, natural way to smooth skin and rejuvenate your appearance. Botox is commonly injected around the eyes, forehead and neck. Receiving Botox injections is an excellent way for you to achieve a younger look without surgery like a brow lift, neck lift, facelift, or mini-facelift also provided at Quintessa.
We use Botox to treat frown lines between the eye and eyebrows, as well as crow’s feet surrounding the eyes, forehead wrinkles, and thick bands at the neck.
Botox has also been successful in relieving migraines headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms.
Receiving Botox Injections
Botox injections are safe and popular treatment for people between 18 and 65 when prescribed and injected properly. Our double-board certified, industry leading plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Campbell highly recommends having a licensed and trained medical professional administer your injections.
Your botox injections are likely to last between 3 and 12 months. However, we recommend follow-up treatments every 3 to 6 months in order to maintain your new look. And for the absolute best results, you can combine Botox with other services Quintessa offers like facial fillers, microdermabrasion, and other skin resurfacing treatments. You can purchase these as an Injectable Bundle for added savings!
how botox helps migraines
Migraines can be a chronic debilitating condition and when medical therapy fails there are other options for management. Neuromodulators, like Botox, have been shown to be incredibly effective in reducing the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. There are also surgical options that involve decompression nerves in the trigger point areas. This can be combined with other facial aesthetic procedures or done separately

Can Botox help with my under eye wrinkles?
Botox can help under eye wrinkles, but not in everyone. Basically, there are two reasons for under eye wrinkles, excess muscle activity, or excess / poor quality skin. The prior can be treated with Botox, the latter can not. If you have excess skin and it is bunching when you smile because the cheek lifts, then excision of the extra skin or laser tightening of the extra skin would be necessary. If excess muscle motion is contributing to the wrinkles, then Botox can help. An experienced surgeon can usually tell what the problem is during an examination. If a patient really wants to avoid a minor surgery, or lasers, then we usually recommend they try the Botox as there is very little risk.
Can Botox around the jawline help lift my skin at the jawline?
Botox placed in the platysma muscle just below the jowl can theoretically relax this muscle and allow the jowl to lift a little. Treating the bands in the neck can also help soften them, but overall, the effect is rather subtle. Placing filler in front of the jowl can give the illusion that the jowl is lifted and the jawline becomes more defined. The most effective way to lift along the jawline would be a mini facelift, something that can be performed right in our office with minimal downtime.
How many units of Botox are needed for the forehead?
Everyone's facial muscles are different. Therefore, everyone's Botox treatment should be different. Using 20 units in the 11 lines is pretty typical for the forehead location, especially if you don’t have any lines there yet and are looking to “low dose” the area just for prevention. Many of our patients have had success using lower doses of Botox as a preventive treatment.In other cases, using 15 units may be most appropriate for the forehead depending on the activity of the frontalis muscle and it's size. Again, every Botox treatment should be customized. We want to relax the forehead muscles, but we don't want to completely relax those muscles to the point where you can't move your brows at all, so it depends on your anatomy as to how many units that would require. Sometimes we will use a lower dose for the first treatment to see if that's enough and use more the second time if necessary.Make sure you see an injector with extensive experience. An inexperienced injector can be a real inconvenience if you don't get the result you desire.Read More
