ABOUT BOTOX INJECTIONS
Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. To understand high blood pressure, it helps to think about how your circulatory system works.
Dr. Ennis is a skilled injector who has been in practice for over 13 years. To help turn back the hands of time and to avoid lines and wrinkles from occurring on the upper section of the face, Dr Ennis is pleased to offer BOTOX to those with aging skin. This nonsurgical treatment offers amazing results and is extremely popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a big improvement to still lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions from the contracting muscles on the upper face. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed but dynamic lines can still remain. To correct these static lines, BOTOX is carefully injected to soften the skin, and is most commonly placed between the brows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead.

BOTOX injections are ideal for patients who want to smooth the visible look of dynamic lines on their upper face nonsurgically. However, it is also used as a preventative anti-aging treatment for those who are in their 20s. BOTOX is a great noninvasive approach if you have forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. It is also an ideal treatment for lines that form around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended.
BOTOX injections are available for patients directly in our office. If it is your first time to visit Premier Women’s Health Center, we may perform the BOTOX treatment during the same day as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make various expressions involving your upper face such as frowning, squinting, and smiling to help us mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, then a cold compression will be applied to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Patients may request a numbing cream or ice pack to help make their treatment more comfortable, but this usually is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take around 10 – 15 minutes and patients can return to their usual activities almost right away.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Following the injection, you will be allowed to resume your normal activities, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a minimum of 24 hours. Patients are also advised to sleep upright for at least one night and are encouraged to avoid touching their face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days following the injection, although most patients should not experience any severe or lasting side effects from BOTOX treatments. In most patients, it takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who have BOTOX for their first visit are so pleased after their initial treatment and thrilled about their results that we almost always get to see them every couple of months for a touch-up. We love having our patients back every visit as we become a part of helping them look smooth and rejuvenated!
