Botox Treatment for Women
At ThriveMD, we are proud to provide our Boulder, Louisville, and Broomfield patients with an effective approach to freedom from wrinkles. Botox is successful as it blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, stopping the injected muscle from contracting. This helps to relax and soften wrinkles in and near the injection site.
This is the basic way that Botox works to help smooth out wrinkles and facial lines. Overall, it is a very quick, simple, and relatively painless process that leaves many patients feeling great about the results. Below we address some of the most common questions and concerns that people have about Botox Treatment.
Understanding Botox Treatment in Colorado
Commonly, Botox is used to treat facial lines and other wrinkles that occur on a woman’s face as she ages. The procedures involved in Botox treatment are quick, this means there is no need for anesthesia. Botox is injected into the skin where the wrinkles appear on the face such as into the upper part of the face.
Most commonly, it is used to perform a modest brow lift, or to treat unwanted wrinkles caused by repetitive movement including frown lines, forehead lines, bunny lines, and crow’s feet. In the lower face, Botox is used to treat certain dimples and depressions on the chin, to minimize the appearance of vertical lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and to elevate a down-turned corner-of-the-mouth. In the neck, Botox is typically used to reduce prominent platysmal bands (neck cords).
Maintenance treatments are needed to maintain the look desired and the length of time between treatments varies from patient to patient depending on their age, gender, and lifestyle habits. Ultimately, there is little discomfort and most women return to their daily routines immediately after the injection. A cold towel or ice can be used on the injected area to help control any discomfort or swelling.
What Areas Can be Treated with Botox?
Botox in Colorado can be used in the treatment of vertical lines, frown lines, horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, eyebrows lift, radial lip lines, bunny lines, pebbly chin, and chin lines among other conditions.
Aside from the cosmetic uses of Botox which are offered at ThriveMD, it is interesting to note that there are many other applications in the medical field. Botox has been used successfully to treat eye disorders such as strabismus (crossed eyes), muscle spasms, urinary incontinence, and even as a preventative treatment for chronic migraines.

Many of the complications that one might expect from Botox treatment come from lack of experience, or expertise. This is why it’s important to find a doctor and clinic that have extensive history with this treatment. It is important to disclose information to your doctor such as whether you have had Botox injections in the past 6 months, or if you take allergy medicine, muscle relaxers, blood thinners, sleep aids, or other medications or supplements. As always, we will perform a thorough evaluation prior to treatment to rule out any major risk factors.
