Three Areas on the Face to Get BOTOX® Treatment

By: Kim Burke


BOTOX treatment is a quick, nonsurgical way to address fine lines and other age-related concerns that make you feel self-conscious. It works by temporarily freezing the underlying muscles that make facial expressions. Now, you can appear younger and more relaxed without an invasive procedure or unnecessary downtime.

Certified nurse practitioner Kim Burke reduces the appearance of forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet, and marionette lines through advanced cosmetic injections in Minooka, IL. Call Kiss Aesthetics to learn about BOTOX and where it can be used. We are proud to develop custom treatment plans that help meet your goals.

What happens during a BOTOX consultation?

Our professionals at Kiss Aesthetics always start with a consultation to determine if BOTOX is the best choice for your concerns. During this appointment, nurse practitioner Kim Burke reviews your current health history to confirm your candidacy. We then assess the different areas of your face and make personalized recommendations about how to move forward.

What areas can be treated with BOTOX?

When we make facial expressions like smiling or squinting, the underlying muscles contract and form fine lines. Over time, these repeated expressions cause wrinkles that become more permanent. Kiss Aesthetics recommends BOTOX treatment for the following:

  1. Forehead wrinkles: These horizontal lines tend to appear when you raise your eyebrows or express surprise.
  2. Crow's feet: They tend to appear around the corners of your eyes when you laugh or smile.
  3. Marionette lines: Wrinkles around the corner of the mouth can give an appearance of a permanent scowl or frown.

This is not a comprehensive list, so please call us for a personalized evaluation if you are interested in learning more.

How are cosmetic injections administered?

BOTOX injections are very simple and require no anesthesia or invasive methods in Minooka, IL. Instead, a fine needle is used to administer BOTOX into the designated muscle groups with minimal discomfort. Injections can take about ten minutes, depending on the areas involved. Rest assured that our certified nurse practitioner is highly experienced and can ensure the process is as seamless as possible.

How long does BOTOX last?

BOTOX results are usually noticeable within 3 – 7 days but can take up to two weeks for optimal effects. Results last several months before your outcomes start to fade away.

The longevity of BOTOX depends on factors such as age, the amount used, areas treated, and how fast your body metabolizes the wrinkle relaxer. Kiss Aesthetics may suggest regular touch-ups every 3 – 4 months to maintain a long-term consistent appearance.

Combining BOTOX with other treatments

You may wish to combine BOTOX treatment with other cosmetic injections to maximize your results. For example, dermal fillers can address hollow or thinning areas that wrinkle relaxers cannot always manage. Fillers are especially popular for restoring volume to the lips and cheeks. Our team can discuss all possible combinations during your initial appointment.
