MEDICI now offers Botox injections, a noninvasive injectable prescription medicine that eliminates wrinkles!

BOTOX Cosmetic® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is an injectable treatment that improves the appearance of wrinkles with almost no downtime.

We use very small needles for an almost painless experience.

Botox is FDA-approved to reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows and in the forehead and crow’s feet regions.

How does Botox work?
Botox binds to acetylcholine receptors in the muscles, inhibiting muscular contractions. This relaxes muscles, reducing wrinkles and fine lines and restoring your more youthful self.

How long does Botox last?
For most people, the results from Botox injections last 3-6 months. After this time, wrinkles and lines may reappear. However, after repeated treatments, they may appear less severe.

How long does it take to see the results?
Results typically take 7-10 days with full effect up to 30 days later. However, some people notice results as early as 48 hours after injections.

Who shouldn’t get Botox?

You should NOT get Botox if:

  • You are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have a neurological condition such as myasthenia gravis, ALS, or progressive muscle weakness

If you take aspirin, NSAIDs, or any anticoagulants (blood thinners), you will have increased risk for bleeding and bruising from Botox.

If you take immunosuppressive therapy, chemotherapy, or HIV/AIDS treatment, you will need a letter of clearance from your physician before you can receive Botox injections.

Will my health insurance pay for Botox?

Botox is not covered by insurance when used for cosmetic purposes.

What should I do to prepare for my visit?

Don’t wear makeup to your appointment.

Don’t drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes for at least 24 hours before your appointment, as they can cause bleeding and bruising.

Don’t take NSAIDs (ibuprofen/Motrin or naproxen/Aleve) or aspirin during the week before your appointment (preferably 2 weeks). These medications can cause bruising.

Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks before any special events, as it can take time to see results and there is a possibility for bruising.
