About BOTOX

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.

Ideal Candidates

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.

Procedure Technique

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.
