Botox™ Cosmetic, also known as cosmetic denervation, is used to eliminate or reduce facial wrinkles. Botox™ works by blocking the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is that the pull of the underlying facial muscles relax, causing the skin to flatten. Botox™ treatments require no anesthesia and the entire procedure takes only about 10 minutes.

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your provider’s office.


Cosmetic Botox treatment is a popular treatment that effectively reduces or eliminates fine lines and wrinkles. It’s commonly used in many areas across the face, such as the forehead, around the eyes and mouth, jaw muscles, and neck bands. Botox is used to:

  • Diminish and soften neck bands
  • Reduce skin dimpling on the chin
  • Smooth wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead furrows, lip lines, frown lines, and bunny lines
  • Lift the corners around the mouth
  • Soften square jawlines
  • Fix a gummy smile
  • Improve the appearance of jowls/li>
  • As a minimal alternative to a facelift
  • Tighten sagging skin

Did you know that Botox injections is the only FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of crow’s feet lines, moderate to severe frown lines, and glabellar lines? Botox is a simple, effective treatment to improve the overall appearance of wrinkles on the face.


Squinting, smiling, frowning, chewing, and basically any other form of facial movement can cause wrinkles on the face. Over time, wrinkles can make you appear tired and even angry, even when you are not. One of the fastest and most effective treatments of wrinkles is Botox.

Though Botox injections is a popular cosmetic treatment for many people in Utah, it’s not suitable for everyone. Ideal Botox treatment candidates should be over the age of 18, in good physical health, and are not pregnant or nursing. In addition, some medical conditions or skin-specific conditions may warrant a consultation with a physician to see if Botox is right for you. Some of these conditions include:

  • Scarring of facial skin
  • Skin disorders around the injection site
  • Thick facial skin
  • Asymmetrical face
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Weakness of facial muscles
  • Diabetes

Those who choose to undergo Botox treatments require a few maintenance appointments throughout the year. If you prefer fewer treatments, a different injectable might be a better option for you.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for Botox in Utah is to schedule an appointment with the experts at Excel Eye Center. In our consultation, we’ll consider your goals, medical history, and skin type to determine if you are a candidate for Botox injections.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox Injections

Does Botox hurt?

Treatments are relatively quick and are generally not painful. Most patients say they experience minimal discomfort during the injection process, which diminishes after the procedure. Because Botox treatment requires no anesthesia and has no recovery time, many patients can schedule an appointment during the day and continue their normal daily routine.

When will I see results?

While each patient’s experiences are different, most will begin to notice results between 3-7 days after the injections. In some cases, it may take up to two weeks to see the final result.

What are the side effects?

Just like any other medical or cosmetic procedure, there is always a risk of side effects. However, many of the side effects of Botox are mild and temporary. Some patients experience bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness around the injection site. In rare cases, headache and weakness of neighboring muscles are also side effects.

How do I prepare for my Botox procedure?

Generally speaking, patients may be asked not to consume certain medications in the week before the treatment, such as ibuprofen and aspirin. You may also be asked not to drink alcohol. For best results, follow the specific instructions from those administering the Botox.

What do I do after the procedure?

After the procedure, you’ll want to ensure that the Botox doesn’t spread to other areas where you might not want it. For an effective cosmetic Botox treatment and to avoid complications, take these precautions:

Avoid rubbing or massaging the injection areas
When applying makeup, don’t rub or press it in
Wait two hours before beginning any strenuous activity, such as working out, lifting heavy items, and other physical activities that could raise the heart rate

When should I begin Botox treatments?

You don’t need to be a specific age when beginning Botox treatments. In many cases, Botox is used as a preventative measure at the first site of wrinkles and lines. Some patients may wait until later in life when wrinkles become more prominent. We recommend scheduling a consultation to determine if you will benefit from Botox.
