As we age, a deepening of the creases that appear across the forehead, around the eyes and between the brows (glabellar lines), result from muscle movement and the passage of time. After years of crinkling, they become more pronounced and exaggerated.
Fortunately, there is a way to reverse these signs of aging and give your skin a younger, firmer appearance. Over 11 million men and women have chosen treatment with Botox Cosmetic and experienced proven results; smoothing and softening moderate to severe lines and wrinkles while still allowing natural facial expressions to come through.*

What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is an FDA-approved neuromodulator treatment for the lines and wrinkles of the upper face. As we continuously make facial expressions, our facial muscles pull and fold the overlying skin creating visible creases. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic works by temporarily halting the muscle contractions responsible for crow’s feet around the eyes, horizontal forehead lines, and vertical worry lines between the eyebrows. Once the movement of the muscles is suspended, the appearance of the resulting lines and wrinkles is reduced. This leaves you with smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

The Benefits of Botox Cosmetic
Botox Cosmetic, approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is a safe muscle-relaxing agent derived from Botulinum that boasts many varied and growing applications. Although it is most widely known for its effectiveness in reducing wrinkles and fine lines, it is also used to treat ophthalmological and neurologic disorders, in the prevention of migraine headaches and even to stop excessive sweating.
Botox Cosmetic is certainly not just for women. In fact, 12% of total Botox Cosmetic procedures are performed on males and Botox Cosmetic is the most popular minimally invasive physician-administered aesthetic procedure for males.
Botox Cosmetic Benefits
- Quick, minimally invasive procedure
- Safe and effective treatment
- Temporary, but long-lasting wrinkle solution

Preparing for Botox in Scottsdale
Once it is determined that Botox will be the ideal solution for your anti-wrinkle needs, preparing for treatment couldn’t be simpler! If you are taking any medications that may thin your blood, you will be asked to stop for the 2 weeks prior to your appointment. During your consultation, the professional working with you may clear you for your Botox procedure the same day! You can begin working on your flawless look before you even leave our office!
At Phoenix Skin, we will determine where the muscles that need to be treated are located. You may be asked to smile or frown to illustrate the natural movement of your face.
Using a tiny micro-needle, Botox Cosmetic is precisely injected into the designated facial muscles. Each area takes less than five minutes to treat and there is little or no discomfort associated with the procedure.*
Aftercare For Botox Cosmetic
There is virtually no aftercare required and you can drive yourself to and from the appointment. Should any minor, temporary bruising occur, you may cover it with makeup and continue with your daily schedule.
Expect to see results 3-5 days after your procedure.* Your skin will be smoother and wrinkle-free after your Botox treatment! These results will begin to fade over four to six months, however, you can safely repeat Botox Cosmetic treatment two-to-three times a year to maintain the look you desire.* Botox Cosmetic also prevents new lines from occurring and with continued use, your face will begin to “forget” to wrinkle and require fewer treatments over time.

Y Lift Facelift
A Y Lift is an excellent way to augment your Botox Cosmetic treatment. A Y Lift is a minimally-invasive procedure. Your dermatology professional will utilize dermal fillers to strategically plump, lift, and shape the contours of your face.

Dermal Fillers are a temporary, yet long-lasting solution to flatten wrinkles, plump deflated cheeks, and volumize thinning lips.

Ultherapy for your neck is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound technology to tighten and smooth the area. Patients report very high satisfaction with their amazing results!
