What is BOTOX?

Each time you look at your face in the mirror, are you unhappy with wrinkles and lines on your forehead and in the skin tissue surrounding your eyes? Commonly called dynamic lines and wrinkles, these skin issues appear as a result of repeated facial expressions, such as squinting, frowning, and smiling. As women and men age, these wrinkles and lines ultimately stay put and can make them seem less youthful. With BOTOX injections, we have the ability to temporarily stop the development of moderate to severe frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, and Crow's feet. BOTOX is derived from a clean strain of botulinum toxin type A. It works to temporarily disengage the facial muscles that enable those movements, letting the overlying skin recover over time. At Elysium SurgiSpa, our experienced team is proud to offer BOTOX as a nonsurgical solution to help individuals achieve a younger-looking, refreshed outcome. Our team encourages you to reach out to our location in Chicago, IL to find out more about the benefits of BOTOX.

Who is a candidate for BOTOX?

Men and women seeking a nonsurgical option to relax frown lines, Crow's feet, or forehead wrinkles may be excellent candidates for BOTOX procedures at Elysium SurgiSpa. It can also be a great cosmetic solution if you are bothered by obvious "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) that result in a withered or aging facial appearance. BOTOX Cosmetic has grown in reputation with younger individuals, too. Though younger adults in their 20s and 30s may not yet notice the early signs of aging, BOTOX may be used as a preventive solution to fend off the normal aging process by temporarily minimizing or slowing the advancement of facial wrinkles.

How Does BOTOX Work?

At your consultation at Elysium SurgiSpa, we will provide a skin analysis to help you determine which areas require treatment. Given that BOTOX is a fast, outpatient service, your injections can typically be carried out at the same appointment. The formula will be placed into the designated areas of your brow or face using a small needle. BOTOX treatments take about ten minutes to administer, and most individuals experience only slight discomfort (like a pinprick or pinching sensation). Following your session, you can immediately go about your normal routine.


How many units/injections will I need?
The amount of BOTOX provided will differ based on individual goals and the depth and severity of your wrinkles and lines. Our skilled aesthetic team will determine the appropriate number of BOTOX units according to your desired aesthetic results and whether you prefer to address the Crow's feet, forehead, or between the eyes. To keep up with your cosmetic results, we may suggest receiving BOTOX injections every 3 – 4 months at Elysium SurgiSpa.

Can I have BOTOX other nonsurgical procedures?
BOTOX treatment often pairs well with other aesthetic options at Elysium SurgiSpa for individuals who wish to minimize signs of aging. If you have deeper and more extensive facial wrinkles and lines, we may talk with you about administering a filler for optimal outcomes. To further improve a younger-looking glow, our team might perform other complementary procedures, including facials or laser skin treatments.

What is the difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Although wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, are administered to minimize fine creases by temporarily blocking your muscle engagement, dermal fillers are a separate collection of cosmetic injections that improve facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to add volume to gaunt-looking areas and reduce static wrinkles. Our team can decide if you could benefit from a filler to complement your BOTOX results.
