What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable drug made from botulinum toxin (type A). It is used to smoothen facial wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging on the skin.
BOTOX injections block certain nerves that cause muscles to contract repeatedly and etch lines in the skin. Injected muscles can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften.
BOTOX is often used to even out the symmetry of the jaw, neck, and lower face. It can diminish frown lines, forehead lines, and crow's feet (lines around the eye).
BOTOX can also smoothen dimpled skin on the chin, reduce sagging of the lower part of the face, and soften smoker's lines around the mouth.
Additionally, doctors have been using BOTOX to treat other medical conditions such as:
- Blepharospasm - uncontrollable blinking
- Cervical dystonia - a neurological disorder that triggers severe shoulder and neck muscle contractions
- Chronic migraine
- Hyperhidrosis – excessive sweating
- Overactive bladder
- Severe underarm sweating
- Strabismus - misaligned eyes
BOTOX injections usually start taking effect five to seven days after treatment. Results may last three months or longer depending on the issue you are treating.
Factors that could affect the efficacy of the injection and how long the results may last include:
- Elasticity of the skin
- Wrinkle depth
- The location of the injection
- The amount of BOTOX that is injected
To maintain consistent results, patients may be advised to take regular follow-up injections.

Who are Ideal BOTOX Candidates?
BOTOX is a non-surgical option for individuals who are looking to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds. Doctors also recommend it as a preventive treatment for wrinkles that have not yet developed.
BOTOX is only FDA-approved for patients who are 18 years and older. Patients in their mid to late 20s and early 30s are ideal candidates for preventative Botox treatment.
BOTOX injectable treatments are done as an outpatient procedure right at Level Up Med Spa. If it is your first time to visit us in Andover, MA for BOTOX, you may be surprised to learn we commonly perform the injection within the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Millar M.D.. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting and frowning, which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal day with no required recovery period.
