Botox Des Moines
Wrinkles and fine lines are the telltale signs of aging. They can make you look tired and older than you actually are, and they are practically impossible to avoid, since they form as a natural result of the way aging affects your body.
At Coachlight Clinic & Spa, we can smooth away your wrinkles and fine lines using Botox. Botox treatments are easy to perform, take very little time to complete, produce little to no discomfort, and provide results that look incredibly natural.
What Is Botox?
Botox is an injectable product that contains a substance known as botulinum toxin. This substance can cause the temporary paralysis of muscles when injected into them.
The fine lines and wrinkles that form on our faces are caused by strained facial muscles that have become stiff due to repeated use over the years. When Botox is injected into these facial muscles, it paralyzes them and allows them to relax. This allows the skin that covers these muscles to take on a softer and smoother appearance.
What Issues Can Botox Treat?
Botox is safe to use in areas across the face, including regions that are considered delicate or sensitive. It can be safely used around the eyes, the brow, the forehead, the chin, and the neck. It can be used to treat a wide variety of common wrinkles, such as:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Vertical brow wrinkles
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Chin wrinkles
- Vertical neck bands
During your initial consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Robbins, he will ask you about the specific wrinkles you are trying to address using Botox injections. This will help to determine the amount of units needed to provide the best possible results from your treatment.
The Botox Injection Process
Botox injections are easy to perform when done by a skilled professional. The treatment process typically takes between 20 to 30 minutes depending on the areas being treated. While Botox injections are relatively painless, we understand that some patients may be more sensitive than others; for these patients, we can apply a topical anesthetic for numbing prior to the injections.
The areas of the face being treated with Botox will be marked to identify precisely where the injections will go. After this, the injections are administered to the marked regions.
What to Expect After Your Treatment
Because of the ease and simplicity of Botox injections, there is no recovery period required. However, some patients may prefer to take an hour or two after their treatment to lie down and relax. There may be some redness around the injection sites.
It will take some time to see the results of your Botox treatment. After around five days, you should notice some improvement, and these results will continue to improve over the coming days. Botox results typically last for three to four months.

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 treat 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.
