Botox® Cosmetic

botox® cosmetic

The only FDA-approved treatment of its kind and the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States, Botox® is highly effective in addressing fine lines and wrinkles to restore a fresh, youthful complexion. When injected in targeted areas, Botox® relaxes the muscles beneath the skin, which temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.


Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by many factors: cellular changes, reduction of college, damage from free radicals, and—most notably—repeated muscle contractions triggered by common expressions such as frowning, squinting, and raising the eyebrows. Botox® works beneath the surface of the skin, temporarily blocking nerve signals that activate muscle contractions. The resulting reduction of muscle activity makes lines and wrinkles visibly smoother. Treatments can also slow the formation of new facial lines.

If you’re looking for a safe, non-invasive way to smooth lines and wrinkles with no downtime, Botox® treatments at Tondue Medical Spa may be right for you. There is no specific recommended age to begin Botox® treatments—that depends on your aesthetic goals and your particular facial structure and expressions. In addition to treating existing facial lines, Botox® can also help prevent the formation of lines and deepening of wrinkles. Both men and women can be treated with Botox®.

A Botox® treatment typically lasts only 30 minutes for established patients. For new patients, we plan for a longer appointment to accommodate a comprehensive consultation that addresses patient questions and concerns. Most patients report little to no pain at the injection site, while others report that injections feel like a tiny pinch that subsides quickly. 

Your cosmetic nurse injector will provide you with after care instructions to ensure you know what to do post-treatment for optimal results.

Visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles may begin  to appear within 24 to 48 hours, with optimal results appearing in 10 days to 2 weeks. Results can last up to 4 months.

We ask that our patients come in after 2 weeks for a follow up appointment to make sure they are happy with the results.
