Botox injections create a more youthful appearance by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles. Most commonly, doctors use Botox to reduce crow’s feet around the eyes, wrinkles on the forehead, glabella or lines between the eyebrows, “bunny lines” at the top of the nose, and perioral lines or “lipstick lines” around the mouth.
It is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure being performed by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons today with nearly 7 million treatments annually in the United States. It is non-invasive, safe and dramatically improves appearance with a look of relaxation and freshness.*
What to Expect with a Botox Treatment
Dr. Timothy Jochen or one of Contour Dermatology’s other qualified providers will inject tiny amounts of Botox directly into your facial muscles. You will feel a stinging sensation that will subside immediately. You will see an improvement in your appearance, but the full effect will be seen after two to three days. One treatment can show visible results for three to four months, and then the area can be retreated. After several treatments, some patients experience longer periods of time between follow-up treatments. Most patients can return to full activity immediately after the procedure.

“Botox” is short for botulinum toxin type A, an effective blocker of nerve impulses. This purified protein can be targeted at specific muscles that create lines and wrinkles in the face, while surrounding muscles remain unaffected. If you are sensitive to the fine lines that come with aging, Botox is an excellent option for you to explore.
It is non-invasive and relatively painless and is performed as an outpatient procedure in office. You may return to work immediately after the procedure. Dr. Jochen will ask you to remain upright for several hours after the treatment.
A few patients, unfortunately, experience discomfort in the form of localized bruising, headaches and nausea, however, these symptoms are generally short lived.
Botox injections can also prove helpful in softening the appearance of platysmal bands, more commonly known as neck bands – the vertical bands or folds that appear in later years. Dr. Jochen’s Botox injection skills extend to the neck region and he has achieved excellent results for numerous patients.
Botox Treats Underarm Sweating
If underarm sweating significantly interferes with your daily activities and topical agents haven’t worked in controlling the problem, you may be a candidate for treatment with Botox.
That’s right – Botox! While it’s best-known for its effectiveness in relaxing facial wrinkles, Botox is also FDA-cleared for treating excessive underarm sweating (a condition known as hyperhidrosis). Botox treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive these chemical signals, the excessive sweating stops.
Significant Reduction in Sweating After Botox Treatment
Most patients notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within four weeks of their first treatment and the results last from six months to a year. Please note that this is considered a cosmetic treatment.
Excessive sweating isn’t limited to the underarm area. The scalp, feet and hands, are capable of the same and for many people, it’s a real problem. Botox can be a game-changer in these situations. If you are bothered by excessive sweating, we invite you to talk with us to learn more about this option to help this condition.
