Botox Fort Collins

If you’ve been looking for a med spa to provide you with Botox treatment in Fort Collins, your search has likely ended here with Xanadu! Botox Cosmetic is the very first (and only) FDA-approved prescription product that improves the short-term appearance of moderate and severe frown lines between the brows along with moderate to severe crow’s feet in many adults.

While facelifts typically involve invasive measures with lengthy recovery times, Botox treatment takes only minutes out of your day. We accomplish this by utilizing a remarkably fine-point needle, injecting it into the muscles of your face that lead to the wrinkles and lines we are so familiar with. Stimulating these muscles will relax them. That, coupled with the active ingredients in Botox blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle, make facial muscles less likely to contract — the culprit of the unwanted wrinkles.

Botox themselves say that “Everyone will notice, but no one will know.” We can’t help but agree — in the time your coworkers take to go grab lunch and bring it back to the office, you’ll have walked in and out of Xanadu without anyone being the wiser! The procedure itself is done in the doctor’s office and the vast majority of patients have no trouble going about their business immediately after the procedure. And pain? Though the pain is far from severe (akin to a light pin prick), we are able to provide our patients with a numbing agent around an hour before the procedure.

What Else Should You Know About Botox?

It’s safe to say that Botox is a household brand name at this point, such is the extent of its popularity. But while many folks are familiar with the brand, they’ve never tried out its remarkable effects for themselves! If you are still on the fence yourself, consider these aspects:

  • FDA-approved
  • Treatment only takes minutes
  • Smooths wrinkles in the forehead, crow’s feet, and between the eyes
  • No downtime or recovery
  • BOTOX® is the number one selling product of its kind in the world

Botox uses a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent that is measured and bought in units. Depending on what your specific goals are, you might require more or fewer units to achieve an ideal result. Though variables like age, sex, anatomy, and physiology of an individual are all taken into account, below you’ll find an approximate number of units utilized to treat common conditions.

  • Horizontal Forehead Lines: 8-16 units
  • Glabella or Frown Lines: 12-30 units
  • Lateral Brow Lift: 2-3 units
  • Crows Feet: 8-16 units (per side)
  • Bunny Lines: 3-6 units
  • Upper Lip Lines: 4-8 units
  • Masseter: 15-25 units (per side)
  • Chin: 4-6 units
  • Neck: 20-30 units
  • Hyperhidrosis of the Axilla: 50 units (per axilla)
