    Botox in Boston

    With our Boston Botox treatments, you can dramatically enhance your appearance and look years younger in a matter of minutes.

    Just one Botox treatment can give you smoother-looking skin and a more refreshed appearance without downtime. As the most popular nonsurgical treatment in the country, Botox in Boston is no exception, it's one of the most popular ways men and women soften wrinkles and look rejuvenated and alert.

    Botox for Wrinkle Prevention

    At Boston Medical Aesthetics, we regularly treat people in their 20s and 30s who come to us for preventative Botox. Using Botox to prevent wrinkles is common among those who are starting to see the first signs of aging – such as minor facial expression lines that don’t go away when you stop squinting the eyes or furrowing or raising the brow area.

    These wrinkles, called “dynamic” wrinkles, often first appear as fine lines around the eyes, between the eyebrows, or on the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles form when you smile, squint, or frown and they get deeper over time with ongoing muscle activation. By injecting BOTOX into areas of the face where wrinkles are starting to develop, you relax the muscles and prevent the movements that etch lines into the skin. This prevents early-stage wrinkles from becoming more pronounced (and more difficult to treat). Regular Botox injections can therefore not only soften existing wrinkles, they can keep new ones from forming. If you’d like to find out if “preventative Botox” is right for you, please schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our Nurse Practitioners, Jennifer Canesi.

    ​About Botox

    Botox is a purified protein that has been used therapeutically for over 15 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. Since 2002, it has been FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments and is most often used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

    Botox is a type of neuromodulator, which means that it relaxes the muscles responsible for wrinkles. When injected into the appropriate locations, Botox temporarily prevents the nerves from communicating. By blocking this communication, the wrinkle-causing muscles soften rather than contract. This results in smoother, tighter, wrinkle-free skin.

    Your Botox Treatment

    For those looking to noticeably reduce wrinkles with Botox Boston board-certified nurse practitioner, Jennifer Canesi, APN-BC, is exceptionally skilled in cosmetic injectables and has been working full time in facial aesthetics for 7 years. Her experience, skill, and artistry will ensure you look natural – never overdone. Your Botox treatment is performed in our office without anesthesia. Botox injections take only a few minutes and can be done during your lunch hour with no disruption to your normal day.

    Before your procedure, ice is used to numb the treatment area so that your procedure is as comfortable as possible. A topical numbing cream is also available for those who want it. Once the area is prepped, Botox is carefully injected using very thin needles. The amount of Botox used will depend on the level of correction needed and your cosmetic goals. The injection process takes only a few minutes and most people find it very comfortable.

    After treatment, you may notice some slight redness, bruising, or swelling where Botox was injected. These side effects are usually mild and go away in a few days. Botox starts working immediately, but you won’t see the final results from your treatment for about 1 to 2 weeks. The effects of Botox can last between 3 to 6 months before a touch-up treatment is needed.

    Benefits of Botox

    In addition to correcting visible wrinkles, many patients use Botox to avoid the formation of wrinkles. Botox works as both a treatment and a preventive procedure.

    Botox is so effective because it works on the root of the cause of wrinkles: the muscles. Worry lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet and lip lines are caused by repeated facial movements and can be improved with Botox injections. When you visit Boston Medical Aesthetics for your Botox treatment, you’ll enjoy:

    • Younger-looking skin
    • A more refreshed appearance
    • Quick, discreet treatments
    • No downtime or recovery
    • Minimal side effects
    • A “lifted” look to the brows

    Who Can Get Botox?

    For even more complete results, Botox can be combined with volumizing cosmetic injectables called dermal fillers. Combining Botox with fillers is a great way to address multiple signs of aging (such as wrinkles and volume loss) without surgery.

    Additional skin rejuvenation treatments may also be beneficial and will provide more dramatic results. Botox is a great option for men and women who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and look younger and more rejuvenated. Botox is particularly beneficial for people who want to:

    • Minimize the look of furrow lines on the forehead
    • Improve the appearance of wrinkles between the brows
    • Soften crow’s feet around the eyes
    • Get rid of “bunny lines” (lines at the bridge of the nose)
    • Lift the brows without surgery
    • Correct a gummy smile
    • Reduce the look of vertical neck lines or neck bands
    • Lift the corners of the mouth
    • Treat excessive sweating of the underarms
    • Slim and contour the jawline
