Smooth away
facial wrinkles

BOTOX is a cosmetic injectable that utilizes a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. By blocking signals from nerves to muscles, it prevents contractions that lead to creases in the skin. This minimally invasive procedure is commonly used to address forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines, providing patients with smoother, more youthful-looking skin with little to no downtime.

BOTOX treats:

  • Forehead wrinkles and fine lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the nose (bunny lines)
  • Chin dimpling (cobblestone chin)
  • Neck bands (platysmal bands)
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

How BOTOX works

BOTOX works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contraction, at the neuromuscular junction. When injected into targeted muscles, it binds to the nerve endings, inhibiting the release of acetylcholine. This prevents the muscle from receiving signals to contract, leading to temporary relaxation. As the muscle relaxes, the overlying skin smoothes out, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Results from BOTOX in Shelby Township typically last several months, after which muscle function and wrinkles return to normal.

Your BOTOX session

During your BOTOX session at XO Aesthetics, our experienced practitioners will begin with a thorough consultation to understand your goals and concerns. Once ready, a series of precise injections will be administered into the targeted areas, typically taking only a few minutes. You may experience minor discomfort, but it’s generally well-tolerated. Sometimes, we can apply numbing cream or ice packs to numb the areas to further reduce discomfort. Afterward, you can resume your daily activities immediately.

BOTOX aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid touching or rubbing the treated area for at least 24 hours
  • Refrain from vigorous exercise or activities that may increase blood flow to the face
  • Do not lie down for several hours to prevent the spread of BOTOX to unintended muscles
  • Avoid alcohol consumption for 24 hours
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Follow any additional instructions provided by your practitioner


Is BOTOX safe?

When administered by our skilled aesthetic providers, BOTOX in Shelby Township is safe for most individuals. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential side effects, usually mild and temporary. Please discuss your medical history and any concerns with your healthcare provider during your consultation.

How long do BOTOX results last?

The effects of BOTOX typically last three to six months, depending on factors like your metabolism, the treated area, and the dosage administered. Over time, muscle activity gradually returns, and wrinkles may reappear. Maintenance treatments are usually required three to four times yearly to sustain the desired results.

Does BOTOX hurt?

Most people report only mild discomfort or a slight pinching sensation during BOTOX injections. The needles used are very fine, and the procedure is usually well-tolerated. Sometimes, we can apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.

How long does a BOTOX session take?

A BOTOX session takes around 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated and your specific needs. It is often called a lunchtime procedure because it can be completed during a short break from work or other activities.

Are there any side effects of BOTOX?

While side effects from BOTOX in Shelby Township are mild, they can include temporary bruising, swelling, redness, or headache at the injection site. In rare cases, more severe side effects like drooping eyelids or asymmetry of facial expression may occur. However, our aesthetic providers take all possible precautions and measures to ensure safe, natural-looking results.

Can I resume normal activities after BOTOX?

Yes, you can typically resume your normal activities immediately after a BOTOX treatment. However, it’s essential to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner, such as avoiding vigorous exercise or alcohol consumption for the first 24 hours.
