At CU Dermatology in Boulder, CO, Kimberly Bacharach, PA-C offers a variety of cosmetic dermatological treatments to give you fresh, healthy and younger-looking skin. Find out more about Botox and what you can achieve with this quick and easy cosmetic solution.


What is Botox?

Botox offers a simple and nonsurgical solution for smoothing away lines and wrinkles of the face. It offers natural-looking results, making it a perfect option for patients in Boulder, CO, who want to improve their appearance but perhaps aren’t ready to fully commit to significant and permanent changes.

Botox is designed to temporarily minimize and get rid of dynamic wrinkles and lines by blocking nerve signals from the muscles to the brain to prevent muscle contractions. Since the muscles are unable to contract, wrinkles that are the result of these contractions are smoothed away and new ones also can’t form.


How is Botox administered?

Botox consists of a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A. This solution is placed into a series of very thin needles that are then injected into the muscles of the face. Since these needles are so thin, most patients don’t experience anything more than a slight pinch; however, if you are a bit nervous about Botox (especially if it’s your first time) don’t hesitate to talk to us about numbing the area prior to getting Botox.


How long does treatment last? Is there a recovery period?

Another benefit to getting Botox in Boulder, CO, is that it only takes a couple of minutes to administer the injections. There is no downtime so you can also go right back to work or your normal routine immediately after. Most patients don’t experience anything more than a bit of redness, swelling or tenderness near the injection sites, which goes away in 1-2 days.


When will I see results?

Since Botox is a bit different from dermal fillers like Juvederm, you won’t see results right away. It can take up to 3-4 days for Botox to work its magic. You will see full results about one week after treatment and results usually last 3-4 months (but can last up to 6 months). If you love your results, you can talk to us about getting additional Botox treatments when results begin to fade.
