We Call BOTOX® Liquid Gold

As the skin ages, a loss of collagen and elastin results in two kinds of wrinkles on the face — dynamic and static. Also known as expression lines, dynamic wrinkles deepen with time and appear with every wink, frown or smile. You most likely notice these wrinkles as frown lines, crow’s feet and other signs of aging that develop around the eyes, nose and forehead.

At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics in Denver, we offer safe, minimally invasive BOTOX® treatments for addressing unwanted expression lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to appear, minimizing the visible signs of aging and refreshing your appearance without any post-treatment discomfort or downtime. We are in the top 500 out of 35,000 accounts with Allergan and have a high rate of patient satisfaction for BOTOX® treatments at our clinics.

What Is BOTOX®?

During the natural aging process, the skin decreases the production of essential building blocks such as collagen and elastin. This, combined with repeated facial expressions such as smiling, laughing, frowning, scowling or squinting, can lead to visible lines and wrinkles. 

BOTOX® is an injectable treatment derived from small doses of a purified form of botulinum toxin that is administered directly into facial muscles with a fine needle. Once injected, the solution blocks the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract, temporarily relaxing them. This reduces muscle movement in treated areas and smooths the overlying skin. The result is a more relaxed, alert appearance without compromising your natural facial expressions. 

BOTOX® Treatment Areas

BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily soften the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles in the following treatment areas:

  • Moderate to severe forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows (also called glabellar lines)
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

However, it can also be used off-label to treat additional concerns, such as:

  • Bunny lines (wrinkles that appear on the bridge of the nose)
  • A “gummy” smile
  • Chin dimpling
  • Making the lips appear fuller (known as “the lip flip” procedure)
  • Platysmal bands (these run vertical on the neck)
  • Barbie Botox (lessens the appearance of the trapezius muscle to elongate the neck)
  • Calf slimming

Finally, BOTOX® can be used to treat certain medical conditions, including:

  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

At VITAHL, your treatment plan will be tailored to address your unique concerns. BOTOX® is a versatile solution for addressing numerous signs of aging. It can be used on its own or combined with dermal fillers and other nonsurgical procedures to help you reach your goals. 

What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is an injectable treatment that offers several advantages to patients, such as:

  • Quick treatment sessions that are easy to fit into your schedule
  • An immediate return to normal activities
  • Minor, temporary side effects
  • Results that will not cause you to appear “frozen” or overdone
  • Subtle improvements that can erase visible signs of aging from your face without any tell-tale signs that you have “had work done”
  • Proven safety and efficacy for both men and women
  • Botox is one of the most extensively studied neuromodulators on the aesthetic market

Am I A Good Candidate For BOTOX®?

Those who are bothered by expression lines and wrinkles are great candidates for BOTOX®. As a minimally invasive treatment with no downtime, BOTOX® is also ideal for those who prefer to avoid the cost and inconvenience of facial rejuvenation surgeries. If you’re considering BOTOX® for rejuvenating your appearance, it may be right for you if:

  • You’re in good overall health with no contraindicating medical conditions (i.e., neuromuscular disorders, keloid scarring, etc.)
  • You have no known allergies to botulinum toxin or other ingredients used in BOTOX®
  • You have realistic expectations for the outcome of treatment 

During your consultation with your clinician, these factors will be discussed in order to help you determine if BOTOX® is a suitable treatment option. If you are approved for treatment, we will create a personalized treatment plan just for you based on your individual needs, concerns and aesthetic goals to deliver results that are all your own.

 What to Expect During Treatment

BOTOX® is a relatively straightforward procedure that is performed in-office. It only takes about 15-20 minutes to complete and requires no downtime or recovery, so you could receive BOTOX® injections on your lunch break and immediately resume your normal activities.

During your appointment, your provider will discuss your goals and carefully mark the areas indicated for treatment. Then, using a very fine needle, a small amount of BOTOX® will be strategically injected beneath the skin and into the targeted facial muscles, relaxing them to smooth away unwanted expression lines and wrinkles. You’ll feel a slight pinch with each injection, but the process is quick and only lasts a few seconds. Most patients tolerate the injections well, but an ice pack or a topical anesthetic can be used to ensure your comfort. 

Once your treatment is complete, you’re free to go back to work or return home. You can resume all normal activities with zero downtime, but it is recommended to avoid pressure on the treatment area and to refrain from touching or rubbing the treated areas. Our team will provide you with aftercare instructions to help you achieve the best possible results.

BOTOX® Results

BOTOX® requires no downtime or recovery, but you may experience mild side effects after your treatment. The most common side effects include redness or swelling at the injection sites. This is completely normal and should dissipate quickly, typically between fifteen minutes up to a few hours.

You’ll start to notice the effects of BOTOX® a few days after your treatment. It takes some time to work its way into the muscles and reduce facial movements, but results should begin developing within three to five days. The full effects of BOTOX® will be apparent within fourteen days, giving your skin a smooth and rejuvenated glow. Once your results have developed, you can expect to enjoy fewer lines and wrinkles for an average of three months. 

Your individual results may vary, and multiple treatment sessions might be necessary in order to achieve your aesthetic goals. As you notice the effects of BOTOX® wearing off, injections can be safely repeated to help you maintain a youthful appearance all year. 

Natural Results That Are Uniquely You

A common concern among patients receiving BOTOX® injections is that they will look “stiff” or “frozen” after treatment, with unnatural facial expressions that make it obvious they’ve “had work done.” In the aesthetic world, this is called “bad BOTOX®” and it is typically caused by inexperienced providers who use too much product or distribute it unevenly beneath the skin.

To avoid these kinds of results, it’s essential to choose skilled injectors like the team at VITAHL Medical Aesthetics in Denver. We are in the top 500 out of 35,000 accounts with Allergan, which means we perform a lot of BOTOX® treatments. Our providers are highly experienced and personally trained by world-renowned expert Dr. Tahl Humes. 

We work closely with you to provide natural results that won’t radically change or compromise your facial expressions. Your results will be visible, but the muscle activity that causes forehead lines, crow’s feet and other dynamic wrinkles is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the creases. Our goal is to have your friends and family wondering what your anti-aging secret is with our proprietary methods and unmatched skill!  

“VITAHL is my go-to for Botox. The front desk staff is incredibly kind, setting the stage for top-notch treatments from the injectors that leave me feeling confident and refreshed every time. Highly recommended.”

 BOTOX® vs. Dysport® vs. DAXXIFY®

BOTOX® is similar to other anti-wrinkle injectables such as Dysport® and DAXXIFY®, but there are some important differences between these treatments. While all three are classified as neuromodulators or neurotoxins and use the same active ingredient — botulinum toxin — to reduce muscle activity in treated areas, they are formulated differently to provide unique results that some patients may prefer. Here’s how Dysport® and DAXXIFY® differ.


Compared to BOTOX®, Dysport® is a “lighter” formula made with smaller molecules that allow it to diffuse or spread more easily once injected beneath the skin. This makes it ideal for treating large areas, such as the forehead, with fewer injections. It also creates a softer, feathering effect that some patients prefer, as it can provide more natural-looking results.


DAXXIFY® is the newest anti-wrinkle injectable on the market. It utilizes an innovative and proprietary Peptide Exchange Technology™ (PXT) that enhances its overall performance. Once injected, it lasts almost twice as long as BOTOX®, providing results that may persist for up to six months. DAXXIFY® is also free from any human or animal-based ingredients and is suitable for patients who have developed an antibody resistance to BOTOX®. 

Which One Should I Choose?

The experienced providers at VITAHL are skilled at producing natural, long-lasting results with BOTOX®, Dysport® and DAXXIFY®. No matter which one you choose, rest assured that you will receive a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique needs and goals. During your consultation, our team will evaluate your concerns and preferences to determine which treatment option is best suited to helping you achieve smoother, wrinkle-free skin. 

Enhance Your Results With Dermal Fillers

BOTOX® works great for softening the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that appear when you wink, squint or smile, but it isn’t effective for static lines, which are visible even when the face is at rest. Dermal fillers are another popular nonsurgical treatment that work by restoring lost volume to reduce the appearance of these static wrinkles, providing you with comprehensive results when paired with your BOTOX® injections. During your consultation, ask your provider about combining BOTOX® and dermal fillers to achieve a truly rejuvenated look.

BOTOX® Frequently Asked Questions

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a non-surgical treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe wrinkles. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines. The treatment is usually done in about 15-20 minutes, and no recovery time is needed- and you must keep your head elevated for about 4 hours following treatment (no downward dog or sleeping until then!) Within days, you may see an improvement that can last 3 to 4 months. Results may vary.

Those moderate-to-severe dynamic wrinkles that form over time are the result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles that create them. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve signals, reducing the activity of the muscles that cause persistent lines to form. You can think of it similar to a roadblock — the nerve signals don’t reach the muscle so it doesn’t contract, and therefore, the skin doesn’t wrinkle.

Within days to weeks, you may see a marked improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. We instruct our clients to wait a full two weeks to observe changes, and lines can continue to improve for up to a month after treatment. Final results last for up to three months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better within one month after treatment. Results may vary.

Results can last around three months after treatment. As BOTOX® begins to wear off, you’ll notice wrinkles gradually returning and becoming more noticeable. Results are different for everyone and factors that affect this include everything from your metabolism, facial expressions, at-home skin care and more! Call to schedule your consultation to learn more.

Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, your clinician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack. The entire procedure takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete, with each injection lasting only a few seconds. Many people are in and out without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic should not be used if there is an active infection at the injection site(s), nor in individuals with known hypersensitivities or allergies to any ingredients in the formulation. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may be at increased risk of serious side effects. Ask your provider and always disclose important medical information each visit.

The most common side effects following injection include localized pain, redness and swelling at the injection sites. Rarely, more serious side effects such as inflammation, infection, temporary eyelid drooping and nausea may occur. Patients with certain neuromuscular disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS) may be at increased risk of serious side effects.

The amount of BOTOX® each patient needs will vary depending on factors such as the severity of their concerns, anatomy and the number of areas being treated. It takes an experienced provider to determine exactly how much BOTOX® to use — too little, and the muscles will remain active, making treatment ineffective; too much, and it creates an unnatural look. During your initial consultation, our skilled team will evaluate your concerns and recommend the right amount of BOTOX® for achieving your aesthetic goals.

Unlike dermal fillers, BOTOX® injections are not reversible once they are administered, making it highly important to choose a skilled professional to perform your treatment. If you’ve had BOTOX® elsewhere and are unhappy with your results, fortunately, the effects will begin to diminish after three months, restoring your normal appearance. Treatment can then be repeated with an experienced provider to help you achieve flawless, natural results.
