Everyday stress, environmental factors, and the natural aging process can all contribute to facial lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment that can reduce years of wrinkles and lines for a more youthful appearance.
At Robles Plastic Surgery in Phoenix, AZ, Dr. Ramon Robles will carefully plan your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment to achieve the best results.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable derived from botulinum toxin. As of 2021, the FDA has approved BOTOX Cosmetic for use in three areas: forehead lines, crow's feet, and glabellar lines. Botulinum toxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles responsible for lines and wrinkles. In turn, the wrinkles relax, resulting in a smoother, fuller appearance.

Side Effects and Results: FAQs
How Soon Can I See My Results?
In most cases, patients will notice a marked improvement in their appearance within a few days. These results will continue to develop over the next month.
How Long Do BOTOX Cosmetic Results Last?
Following BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, patients can expect their results to last for about three to four months on average. Once the effects wear off, you can undergo another treatment session to maintain your results.
How Long Do Side Effects Last?
The most common side effects of BOTOX Cosmetic include discomfort, tenderness, swelling, bruising, and itchiness at the injection site. Discomfort typically goes away as soon as the injection process is complete, but tenderness, itchiness, swelling, and bruising may take a few days or few weeks to subside.
What Should I Avoid after Treatment?
Patients should avoid strenuous physical activity, touching the treatment area, overexposure to heat or the sun, facials, massages, blood thinners, travel, and alcohol for the first 24 hours after BOTOX Cosmetic treatment.
Types of Injectables
Botulinum Toxin Products
Injectable products like BOTOX Cosmetic, BOTOX®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® contain very small amounts of botulinum toxin. Soon after it is administered, injectable products containing botulinum toxin temporarily paralyze the muscles, which relaxes them.
This offers a number of uses and benefits, including reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles for patients getting BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin injections; BOTOX can treat a number of medical conditions, including migraines. Of these treatments, Dr. Robles offers BOTOX Cosmetic, which has a long record of success.
Fillers contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, which "fill in" lines and wrinkles. The gel-like substance is used to add volume at the injection site. At our Phoenix practice, also serving Scottsdale and Avondale, we offer JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and RADIESSE® to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles and plump up the cheeks or lips.
BOTOX vs. BOTOX Cosmetic
Did you know that there are actually two types of BOTOX injection products on the market?
BOTOX Cosmetic is the treatment that most of our patients are familiar with; this effective product addresses facial lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX is a product that addresses medical conditions. BOTOX injections can treat chronic migraines, adult and pediatric muscle stiffness, severe underarm sweating, overactive bladder, eyelid spasms, strabismus, and cervical dystonia. Although Dr. Robles doesn't offer BOTOX for medical conditions, he does offer BOTOX Cosmetic.

I had a great experience with Dr. Robles. He is very honest with his feedback and compassionate about his patients. From the start he was respectful with what I wanted done and reasonable. He also uses a precise technique that allows the recovery process to be much quicker than average! It has been almost a year now and I’m very happy with the results. Very grateful I chose him & would definitely (& do!) recommend to others.View on Google
