To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Plastic Surgery Vegas in Las Vegas, NV is pleased to offer BOTOX to local patients. This nonsurgical procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both women and men. This injectable can make a dramatic improvement to facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressive movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead and around the eyes. These facial lines may or may not disappear when the face is relaxed, but when injected into the face, BOTOX temporarily blocks the movements of these muscles to soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead. In addition, we offer Dysport, which is another excellent option that works similarly to BOTOX.
"Dr. Silver is absolutely amazing! I had a pretty deep set & mean looking scowl whenever I squinted my eyes or furrowed my brows. Dr. Silver talked me through the entire process and had me make facial impressions before relaxing my forehead, then injecting. He put me at complete ease by distracting me with a neat ice cube trick that made the Botox injections pretty much painless! I didn't have any bruising, just a strange tingling sensation and slightly tight feeling for the next 2 days. 4 days after the injection, my scowl is totally gone! Just a cute stink eye is left when I try to frown! I am absolutely in LOVE with Botox and my results with Dr. Silver! Fun side note: makeup applies much smoother and my expressions are much kinder and softer now!! Highly recommend him!"- C.A. / Google / Jul 15, 2018
"Dr. Higgins and his staff are exceptional! I have never waited more than 10 minutes in the lobby, always been greeted by professional, friendly staff and enjoyed my experience at Anson, Edwards and Higgins (which is really saying something because I don't like going to the doctor). The only aspect of this practice that is better than the staff is, of course, the physicians. I have been a patient for several years and have been thrilled with the outcome of my surgery and, later, Botox and Juviderm injections. In each case, the outcome has been natural looking and earned me compliments. Dr. Higgins is a true and consummate professional. I will remain a patient for years to come."- T.B. / Google / Sep 28, 2015

BOTOX injections are great for individuals who want to diminish and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific, nonsurgical approach if you have forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you experience deeper lines, a filler product may be a better option. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This delivers a more impactful result, and it is more long-term. Plastic Surgery Vegas offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as effective options.
BOTOX injectable treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure directly at Plastic Surgery Vegas. If it is your first time to visit us in Las Vegas, NV to get BOTOX, we typically perform the injection during the same day as your consultation. You will be asked to make various expressions using the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., to help us to mark where the injections should be placed. The face will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your usual activities immediately afterward.
What to Expect
Although you may resume your regular schedule, strenuous activity should be postponed for a minimum of one day. You will be advised to sleep with your head elevated for at least one night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injection sites can become bruised, swollen, or red for a couple of days, but you will not have any serious or long-lasting side effects. In many cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your BOTOX injector about when to make touch-up appointments at Plastic Surgery Vegas to refresh your results.
How long will my results last?
The results from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule a visit every quarter to refresh their results, but you may come back earlier. If you're using BOTOX before wrinkles are visible as a preventive treatment, you can schedule appointments further apart. After hearing your concerns and creating your BOTOX plan, we will be able to estimate when you should make your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (including BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm and Restylane) are both popular cosmetic treatments that improve the appearance of wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that create wrinkles, like frown lines (which appear between your eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of your eyes), smile lines, and forehead wrinkles. Dermal fillers add volume below the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease wrinkles. After hearing your goals, we may suggest BOTOX, fillers, or a combination of both for a "liquid facelift."
What's the difference between BOTOX and Dysport?
BOTOX and Dysport are brands of wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin. They both relax the treated muscles to smooth wrinkles; however, each brand is made to treat specific needs. Some of the small differences between them include the recommended dosage, treatment spread, and how long the results last. Our cosmetic team will help you choose the best brand or brands to fit your goals.
Is BOTOX safe?
As long as it is administered properly, BOTOX should not cause any complications. However, it's important to select someone with experience and training in handling this medication, like our skilled injectors. Too much of the product may cause bad results. A skilled practitioner will apply just enough of the medication to effectively relax the facial muscles causing the unwanted wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. Quickly becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments on the market today, it is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
