To help in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Scottsdale Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ is proud to offer BOTOX to local individuals. This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed by plastic surgeon Dr. James Nachbar between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is longer lasting. Scottsdale Plastic Surgery offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as great options.

Botox Cosmetic - I just had botox injection this time. I look younger!Dr. Nachbar is an excellent physician. He is very interested in understanding the patient's expectations and is quite honest about what can and can't be achieved. He gives his personal cell number and at no time have I felt reluctant to phone him directly. His office is beautiful, tremendous photography equipment and immaculate. The staff is bright, cheerful and professional. I have recommended him to several friends and they have shared the same positive experience.

Face Lift - I'v had previous procedures with 2 other plastic surgeons and have never had the surgeon do the whole first consult for beginnig to end, usually you only see him briefly after you explain to the Nurse about what you want, I've never had the Dr take the before pictures! Dr Nachbar makes you feel so comfortable and doesn't sugar coat or make promises that aren't realistic just to get your money. I've also never stayed over night in a hospital, one procedure I had was a tummy tuck with drains and I went home after the surgery but it would have been nice to have a overbite stay with nursing keeping an eye on you. I've also never had the surgeon do the injectables or use a block. I've already shared his info with many people!I've already shared his information

Dr. Nachbar was patient, explained everything well with options. He told me to try their skin routine before I considered facial surgery, which indicated to me that he was cautious and advising me to take my time before I jumped to surgery. I felt confidence in him and his suggestions and look forward to more visits.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX treatments are done as an outpatient procedure conveniently at our practice. If it is your first time to visit us in Scottsdale for BOTOX, we commonly perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Nachbar. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions with the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by gentle compressions to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request an ice pack or numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you can resume to your normal routine with no required recovery period.

What to Expect

After the procedure, you may get back to your usual routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you typically will not develop any long lasting or serious side effects from injectable treatments. In many cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery to extend your results.

Smile Without Worry

Stop worrying! You can frown, smile, laugh, and make any expression you want without seeing wrinkles and lines thanks to BOTOX wrinkle relaxer treatments. To prevent and smooth lines across the face, we invite you to schedule an appointment with plastic surgeon Dr. Nachbar in Scottsdale, AZ to hear more about this popular nonsurgical injectable.

How many treatments will I need?

The amount of BOTOX injections administered will vary based on individual concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles and lines. Your injector can suggest the appropriate number of BOTOX units based on your treatment outcomes and whether you want to treat the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To refresh your aesthetic results, our team might suggest having BOTOX treatments every 3 – 4 months.

Can I combine BOTOX with other cosmetic services?

BOTOX injections generally pair well with other aesthetic services at Scottsdale Plastic Surgery for those who want to address aging concerns. If you notice deeper and more extensive creases and wrinkles, our team might suggest adding a filler to help you achieve smoother outcomes. 

What's the difference between fillers and wrinkle reducers?

Though wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX, are provided to smooth fine creases by temporarily freezing your muscle engagement, fillers are a distinct collection of cosmetic options that increase facial volume. Fillers are designed to plump sunken features and soften static wrinkles. Your injector can determine if you could be a good candidate for a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to complement your BOTOX outcomes.
