To help turn back the hands of time or to prevent deep wrinkles from forming, Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV is proud to offer BOTOX injections. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can provide a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX is injected to soften the skin. Injections are most commonly placed by our expert injector and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead. The most natural and beautiful outcomes with BOTOX treatments require meticulous attention to detail, technical finesse, vast experience, and aesthetic talent. Reducing rather than removing muscle action with BOTOX subtly and naturally balances a softer and more rejuvenated appearance while maintaining natural expression.
Here at Summerlin Dermatology, Dr. Aspacio has the knowledge and expertise in advanced applications of these neurotoxins. Brow shaping, more open eyes, bunny nose, nasal elevation, gummy smile, downturned smile, pebbly chin, perioral wrinkles, thin lips, broad jawline, neck rejuvenation, facial asymmetry especially due to Bell’s Palsy, are all issues that may be addressed by Dr. Aspacio with BOTOX. He may open a world of possibilities for you.
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also injected as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may be a better candidate for a facelift.

"Before beginning this review, I took time to read several of the reviews posted. A very mixed bag of issues and emotions. Well, here is why I gave this group of working professionals a "5 STAR" rating. I was referred to Summerlin Dermatology by my so called medical PCP. I had concern about a mole like growth on my back which appeared to be getting larger. I was concerned it could be cancerous. I received a call from Summerlin Dermatology on 9/26/2018 regarding this referral. It seemed they had a cancellation for that day and asked if this was convenient for me. Yep. Sure was. However, I told the young lady on the phone, Daisy, I didn't want to sit there filling out new patient paperwork. She explained their website with the on-line forms was down at the time and offered to email me the forms to complete before I arrived. She was so upbeat and professional. When I arrived for my appointment (with my completed paperwork) I was greeted by, not one, but two front office staffers, Jose and Desiree. They were professional with a smile. Again, upbeat. I signed in and waited about 10-15 minutes before I was taken into the examining room. During my wait time I had the opportunity to chat with each of these individuals. Very professional, yet not "starchy" if you know what I mean. Real people with a job to do the best they can. I met with Dr. Aspacio and his assistant. I felt at ease with both. I told the doctor why I was there. Doctor Aspacio examined the mole growth. Then asked me for my cell phone. He took a picture of this mole on my back. It was not easy for me to see since it was on my back. He showed me the picture and explained that it was typical of getting older. Such moles are common at "our age". I laughed. He even showed me a couple of areas where he has developed similar moles. He made me feel at ease. I was sooo relieved. I have lived in Las Vegas for 43 years. I am 67 years old with Medicare insurance. If you want to experience REALLY BAD medical treatment just wait until you become a senior and on Medicare! I thank heaven that Summerlin Dermatology was an outside referral and NOT part of my primary care network!! I haven't seen my PCP in 2 years! All I see are PAC's or a Nurse Practitioner! Summerlin Dermatology, in my experience/opinion, is only 1 of 3 local medical facilities with whom I would consider professional, to the point and personable. I would recommend them highly!!!"- L.H. / Yelp / Sep 27, 2018
"Very knowledgeable professional and detailed. The staff is very attentive and the doctor was incredibly informative taking the time to make sure I understood the procedure. When the results came in he recommended a plastic surgeon to do the surgery. I really felt very confident in the diagnosis and appreciated everyone's help."- S.S. / Yelp / Sep 20, 2018
BOTOX injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly at Summerlin Dermatology. If it is your first time to visit us in Las Vegas, NV for BOTOX, we commonly perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Aspacio. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities with no recovery period.
What to Expect
After the injection, you can resume your usual activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The injection points on the face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any long lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Summerlin Dermatology to maintain your results.
Plan Your Procedure
Smile Without Worry
Don't worry! You can frown, smile, laugh, and make any other expression you want without seeing wrinkles and lines thanks to BOTOX injectable treatments. To smooth and prevent lines on the face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Aspacio in Las Vegas, NV to learn more about this amazing nonsurgical injectable.
