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.
"Summerlin Dermatology is the best Dermatology office in Las Vegas! If I could give this office 100 stars I would in a heartbeat. My grandparents have been patients of his for over 10 years. My papa had skin cancer that Dr. Aspacio removed successfully. My grandma is a Filipino woman who loves to garden and she developed Melasma, Dr. Aspacio knew the best way to help her. I personally started going to Dr. Aspacio In 2008, I had surgery on my arm and I ended up finding out that I develop keloids. I was very self conscious about my scar, my grandparents recommended that I see Dr. Aspacio and I'm so thankful that I did. Years later in 2017, my boyfriend has a consistent rash that he couldn't get rid of, then he started having fast unexpected hair loss. He went to numerous dermatology offices in Las Vegas and never found anything that helped. I finally convinced him to see my dermatologist he made an appointment to see Alice at Summerlin Dermatology. He said she was very professional and was very direct and to the point. Due to his Alopecia, Alice did injections at the site where he had hair loss and thankfully the hair grew back perfect. You'd never know he had hair loss! She prescribed a few things for the rash and he finally had results. He was happy and that made me happy! I couldn't be more thankful for this office in taking care of my family. I currently get my botox from Dr. Aspacio & I love my results, all thanks to Trish, she is their cosmetic coordinator and office manager. She has the most awesome personality. Every time I get to see her it's like catching up with family, I feel right at home. I work for another surgeon in Las Vegas and our patients can't say enough great things about Trish and everyone else at Summerlin Dermatology. I only trust Dr. Aspacio with my face! I highly HIGHLY recommend this office for any medical dermatology or cosmetic needs. (:"- T.W. / Yelp / Dec 10, 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.
