What is BOTOX?
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 wrinkle relaxer 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 cosmetic 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.
What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX?
A custom-tailored BOTOX treatment plan at Plastic Surgery Vegas can help you reverse or even slow the hands of time with a number of great benefits, including:
- Smoothing wrinkles and lines
- Preventing the formation of new creases and wrinkles
- Creating a rested, more youthful appearance
- Achieving results without surgery or scarring
- Treatments are quick

"I am beyond happy with my decision to go with Plastic Surgery Las Vegas because my entire experience with them has been INCREDIBLE. I got my breast augmentation in September, and from the time I met for a consultation to surgery day their team was on it! Not only does Dr Edwards have accolades that are quite impressive, but he does a phenomenal job educating and helping you feel comfortable which really put me at ease that I was in the right hands. Initially I had plans to go to other consultations and speak with more plastic surgeons before making a decision, but I didn't see a need- Dr Edwards had it all! He really took his time with me and gave his suggestions of what I told him I wanted, and the end result fit my body perfectly. To be transparent- I couldn't decide on what specific CC size I wanted even up until the day-of surgery. So it was important for me to work with a plastic surgeon who could give me natural looking breasts (yet still bigger in size), and Dr Edwards delivered exactly that. I am in love with the work he did! And even though I am still in my recovery period, I can honestly say it's been looking better and better each day. In addition to my surgery, the office also offered a complimentary facial and free botox for me and a friend! Helloooo, this is AMAZING considering how unexpected it was. I have to give kudos to the injector Angela- she is such a gem! All the nerves I had walking in went out the door after being taken care of by her. THANK YOU DR. EDWARDS, ANGELA, CATHY, CYNTHIA, AND STAFF for doing such an outstanding job and your unmatched hospitality. I really couldn't have asked or wanted anything more!"- M.D. / Google / Jan 26, 2022
"I can not say enough kind words about this wonderful practice. Everyone in this office is so kind, caring and so amazing. I recently had Dr. Edwards perform my breast augmentation. I did my research and had many consultations with various doctors but as soon as I met with Dr. Edwards I knew he was the doctor for me. From the moment I met him he made me feel safe in his hands, he has a wonderful bedside manner and he's a top notch doctor who really listens and makes sure to answer all questions, I'm so glad I picked him. My surgery was a breeze both he and Ada, his awesome assistant were with me every step of the way, thank you. Also, I want to give a shout out to Dr. Silver and Kim who have done injectables for me many times, always with amazing results. And, to Kelly who managed to co-ordinate all my procedures and support me along this journey. What a wonderful team!"- M.F. / Google / Mar 19, 2022
"I have been going to Plastic Surgery Vegas for over 8 years. The front desk employees are very professional. Seonaid does my Botox and Filler. She is the best! She is excellent and always is accommodating to my schedule. I would highly recommend Seonaid and this company."- S.G. / Google / Apr 16, 2022
Who is an Ideal Candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are great for individuals who want to:
- Diminish and soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery
- Receive a preventive treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed
- Undergo a 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.
How does BOTOX work?
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 can I Expect after BOTOX?
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.
What is the cost for BOTOX?
Our Plastic Surgery Vegas doctors or RN injectors are able to help with the BOTOX treatments. The cost for BOTOX administered by our RN injectors is $500 and $700 if done by one of our doctors. Depending on the treatment needed, this could vary and we request that patients contact our office in Las Vegas, NV to set up an appointment.
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).
