It can also treat pebbly chin, bunny lines on the nose, skin laxity on the jaw, and neck bands. If you are experiencing one or more of these things, now is a great time to call our office and schedule a consultation to learn what BOTOX Cosmetic can do for you.

When can I Start Getting BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is approved for use in patients as young as 18. However, the best time to start BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is when dynamic wrinkles first appear – typically in your mid-20s to early 30s. However, you needn’t wait for those first wrinkles to set in. Some patients use BOTOX Cosmetic to prevent wrinkles from appearing in the first place.

There is no “right age” for treatment, just the right time for you – and the best way to find out when that time has come is through a one-on-one consultation at our comfortable Tulsa office.

Why Consider BOTOX Cosmetic?

Patients love BOTOX Cosmetic because it is a non-surgical, non-invasive way to reduce wrinkles, and it is much more effective than years of using wrinkle creams and serums that you get at your local pharmacy. Moreover, injections are painless and fast, and there is no downtime following treatment. Many patients come in for treatment on their lunch hour and return to work afterward, though some redness and swelling may be present at the injection sites for a few days.

Results from BOTOX Cosmetic are fast, often appearing within a week. Full results are typically realized within 10 to 14 days, and they can last for up to four months. Maintenance treatments, spaced a few months apart, can be used to extend results. We will discuss this with you during your treatment consultation to help you plan accordingly.
