Does BOTOX Prevent Wrinkles?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator. These medications work by blocking the signal between nerves and muscles that cause underlying tension. When tension is released, the overlying skin is able to smooth, resulting in a significant reduction in wrinkles. This effect is, however, temporary.

BOTOX® Cosmetic does not prevent wrinkles, it temporarily reduces the visibility of wrinkles you already have. You can easily maintain your results with treatments spaced three to four months apart, but the procedure will not produce a lasting impact on its own.

Skin Care

BOTOX® Cosmetic does not prevent wrinkles, but we carry a comprehensive line of Obagi® Skin Care products that are designed to do just that. We carry both the clinical and medical Obagi® lines, which include:

  • Serums
  • Moisturizers
  • Creams
  • Brighteners
  • Peptide complexes
  • Sunscreens
  • Cleansing Gels
  • And more!

Each Obagi® line is specifically formulated to address different concerns, including wrinkle reduction. Our team of experienced and attentive skin care experts is here to listen to your concerns, provide treatment diagnostics, and guide you towards the most effective options.

Dermal Fillers & Microneedling

BOTOX® Cosmetic is only one treatment for wrinkles. If you are looking for longer-lasting results, we may recommend Profound, a microneedling treatment that utilizes RF energy to smooth fine lines and deep wrinkles. Microneedling stimulates collagen production, helping results to last a bit longer than with most neuromodulators.

Dermal fillers offer another fantastic solution for wrinkles. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvéderm® is an injectable treatment designed to address signs of aging. Fillers stimulate collagen production, allowing them to add volume to the face and helping to eliminate even the most pronounced wrinkles. A dermal filler treatment may produce results for twelve to eighteen months and can even be prolonged with maintenance treatments.
