In an aesthetic center that places the utmost importance on quality, safety, and service. At Clareo Plastic Surgery in Boston Botox is used to soften or eliminate expression lines around the eyes, forehead, and brow area to refresh the skin and put a temporary stop to skin aging.
At Clareo Plastic Surgery, we use genuine Botox direct from the manufacturer, Allergan, to provide our patients with exceptional results while maximizing safety and efficacy.
What is Botox?
Botox is an injection that temporarily weakens the muscle into which it is injected. The active ingredient in Botox, botulinum Type A, blocks certain chemical signals sent by nerves that are responsible for causing facial muscles to contract and relax.
When injected into muscles of the face in appropriate doses, muscles relax and the lines of animation and age soften or go away. Botox works quickly, but it is not an instant treatment like dermal fillers. Rather, it takes a few days for the product to relax the chemical nerve signals in the facial muscles. Our Boston Botox patients generally notice the wrinkles and expression lines in the treated area become smoother and less obvious in about 2-4 days after treatment. Full results take 10-14 days.
Anyone bothered by forehead lines, a crease or creases between the eyebrows, or crow's feet by the eyes may be a candidate for treatment with Botox. Occasionally used in other areas of the face, Botox is commonly used to treat the area around the eyes. Botox is suitable for men and women that are in good general health. Women must not be pregnant or breastfeeding at the time of the procedure.
People with allergies to the main ingredient in Botox, while rare, should not receive treatment. The skin must not have active lesions, wounds, tumors, or sores in the immediate area that requires an injection. In addition, certain neurological diseases may disqualify some patients from receiving Botox injections. This list is not all-inclusive. During your consultation for Botox Boston injection specialists at Clareo Plastic Surgery will help you to determine if you are eligible for the procedure. Our Boston Botox injection specialist will conduct a skin examination along with a questionnaire about your relevant medical history to determine if Botox is in your best interest medically.
Patients that are good candidates for the Botox procedure can choose to be treated the same day as the consultation.
It is best to schedule Botox at least two weeks before special events to allow the full effects of treatment to take place. Patients that are receiving Botox injections for the first time may benefit from booking the appointment 3-4 weeks ahead of important events so that they may receive a touch-up to fine-tune the results if needed.
Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that causes little if any pain. Most people that have received Botox injections report that it feels like a quick pinch, with mild discomfort resolving in minutes.
The full results of Botox are visible approximately 10-14 days after the procedure. At this point, the muscle has relaxed and the skin has smoothed considerably
The effects of Botox gradually wear off over four to six months. As the Botox results wear off during this time, patients will notice a resumption of normal facial muscle movement in the treated area. Fine lines and wrinkles will slowly begin to reemerge until the skin returns to its pre-treated appearance. For the best results, we recommend that our clients return before the product wears off fully. This ensures that you can maintain a wrinkle-free appearance that is long-lasting.
There is no Botox downtime and patients can return immediately to their daily routine or work. Patients should avoid strenuous activity for six hours after receiving Botox.
While relatively uncommon, some patients report a mild headache on the day of their Botox treatment. Before taking any pain medication, such as NSAIDs, please consult with the injector first. Certain types of medications and supplements may increase bleeding risk.
Look natural, not frozen
At Clareo Aesthetics we are careful to inject the appropriate amount of Botox to give a completely natural, not frozen, result. Some patients require more Botox than others due to wrinkle depth or the desire to have a more smooth look with less movement.

Botox, botulinum toxin, is a neurotoxic agent that when injected into muscle weakens or paralyzes the muscle. Used in an aesthetic setting, the effect of muscle relaxation is an improvement or disappearance of the fine lines or creases caused by the animation of the muscle. Weakening certain muscles can have other beneficial effects, such as raising the eyebrow.
