What Is BOTOX?

Are you distressed about fine lines or wrinkles present on your brow area and in the skin tissue around your eyes? Commonly called dynamic lines, these skin issues occur due to repeated facial expressions. As we age, these wrinkles ultimately remain and can make us look worn out. Thanks to BOTOX, it is now possible to temporarily minimize the development of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and Crow's feet. Derived from a specialized type A strain of botulinum toxin, BOTOX temporarily blocks the muscles that assist with those contractions, allowing the overlying skin to recover over time. At James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. James Rough performs BOTOX as a minimally invasive cosmetic solution for patients to achieve a smoother, refreshed appearance. Reach out to our location in Tucson, AZ to learn more about BOTOX.


What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX?

Fine lines and facial folds can take away from our other features, in addition to making us seem older than we are. BOTOX is a trusted option for providing you with a younger, rejuvenated appearance. Although the outcomes are not permanent, you will reap their benefits for many months before wanting to schedule a second appointment. You may also get additional benefits from BOTOX at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery, such as:
• Quick appointments: BOTOX treatments may take as few as 10 minutes.
• No rest or recovery: Due to the minimally invasive nature, you are welcome to resume your daily life following treatment.
• Minimal discomfort: BOTOX injections use a very fine needle, so that the treatments will feel only like a small pinch of the skin.
• Easy maintenance: If you want to maintain your results for a while, follow-up appointments are brief and realistic for day-to-day activities.


Should I Get BOTOX?

Individuals seeking a nonsurgical treatment to smooth Crow's feet, frown lines, or forehead creases may be excellent candidates for BOTOX injections at our Tucson, AZ facility. It can also be a good solution if you are experiencing noticeable glabellar lines ("11" lines between the eyes) that cause a withered or aging appearance. BOTOX injections have grown in popularity among younger patients, as well. While individuals ages 20 – 30 may not yet show the early signs of aging, BOTOX can be provided as a preventive option to fend off the natural process of aging by temporarily minimizing or slowing the appearance of facial wrinkles.


How Does BOTOX Work?

Throughout your first consultation, Dr. Rough will examine your facial skin to determine which areas require treatment. Since BOTOX is provided during a quick, outpatient service, your injections can often be carried out in the same appointment. The formula will be placed into the specified areas of your forehead or upper face using a small syringe. BOTOX treatment takes approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete, and most patients notice only minor discomfort (such as a pinching or pinprick feeling). After your session, you are welcome to leave our Tucson, AZ practice and carry on with your daily activities, but you must avoid strenuous activity for up to 24 hours.


What BOTOX Results Can I Expect?

You might see a bit of minor bruising, swelling, and redness in the injection sites following BOTOX treatment, but these symptoms shouldn't last long. We might suggest that you refrain from rigorous exercise and not touch the treatment sites for about a day or so. Over the next 48 – 72 hours, you will likely start to experience your firmer, smoother skin. BOTOX treatments could offer up to four months of youthful, natural-looking improvements for the majority of men and women. Dr. Rough will recommend how often you need treatments as part of a customized plan to help you meet your aesthetic results. Our staff can discuss the approximate cost of BOTOX injections, but the price generally varies, depending on how many units are used.

Botox FAQs

How many injections/units will I need?

The number of BOTOX treatments needed will vary based on individual needs and the depth and severity of your lines and wrinkles. Dr. Rough and his team will suggest the correct quantity of BOTOX injections based on your targeted cosmetic goals and whether you prefer to address the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To refresh your aesthetic results, our experts may recommend getting BOTOX every 3 – 4 months.

Are there comparable aesthetic injections?

BOTOX Cosmetic is a certain formulation of wrinkle reducer that thrives among a multitude of other effective options, including Dysport®. Other wrinkle relaxer treatments utilize type A botulinum toxin; however, each is designed individually to address specific challenges.

Is there a variation among wrinkle relaxers and fillers?

While wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX, are used to diminish fine lines by temporarily preventing muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a distinct category of cosmetic options that enhance facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to volumize areas of the face and fill in static wrinkles. Dr. Rough and his team can decide if you might be a good candidate for a filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to complement your BOTOX outcomes.

Can I have BOTOX with other aesthetic treatments?

BOTOX typically pairs well with other noninvasive services at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery for patients who would like to address aging concerns. If you have more pronounced and severe wrinkles and creases, Dr. James Rough might talk with you about administering a dermal filler for maximum results. He offers a wide variety of dermal fillers that can complement your BOTOX procedure.

How long does BOTOX last?

The duration of BOTOX results can vary from person to person. On average, the effects of BOTOX injections typically last between 3 to 4 months. However, this can vary depending on factors such as the area treated and the number of units administered. After the initial treatment at James Rough, M.D. Plastic Surgery, subsequent BOTOX sessions can be scheduled to prolong your results.

How much does BOTOX cost?

The cost of BOTOX injections at our Tucson, AZ practice may depend on several factors, including the location and the dosage required for the desired outcomes.
