The Beauty of Botox® Cosmetic: The Anti-Aging Injectable
The purified protein injectable, Botox® Cosmetic, has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles since its FDA approval in 2002. A Botox® Cosmetic treatment at Coachlight Clinic & Spa at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ can easily begin your anti-aging fight.
A Popular Cosmetic Treatment to Reduce Wrinkles
More than 7 million people in 70 different countries have experienced the benefits of Botox® Cosmetic to reverse signs of aging. When injected into the skin, it relaxes small facial muscles, which works to reduce facial wrinkles for several months.
Although Botox® Cosmetic is popular for women, men are looking at neurotoxins in a whole new way. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 3.6 million botulinum toxin procedure like Botox® Cosmetic were performed in the United States last year and of those, 11.5% were men.

Your Botox® Cosmetic Treatment
At Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ and Coachlight Clinic & Spa, our Registered Nurses, Jackie and Sheila, are Advanced Injectors and together have completed tens of thousands of injections over their many years of experience. They have helped our practice become part of Allergan’s Elite Black Diamond Partner Program to which we have entered the top 100 aesthetic practices in the United States to administer Allergan products (Botox® Cosmetic, Juvederm® and Latissse®).
During your appointment, Jackie or Sheila, may ask about your skin care regimen and examine the areas of your face you wish to have treated. From this examination, we will choose specific areas for Botox® injection. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed around the chosen points of injection. The total time for your treatment will usually not exceed 15 minutes.
Using a special technique, we will use a syringe to inject the Botox® Cosmetic solution into the muscle. Once injected into a specific muscle, Botox® Cosmetic works to temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck by blocking the chemical signal from the nerve to the muscle that cause wrinkles. This decreases the contraction of the muscle, which causes the overlying fine line or wrinkle to smooth out, giving your skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. While a topical anesthetic may be available, it is usually not necessary.
