Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the facial muscles to minimize wrinkles and achieve a smooth, relaxed and youthful appearance.
When injected with an artistic eye and an understanding of facial anatomy, receiving arguably the best Botox Phoenix has to offer can creatively lift the brow and open the eyes, rejuvenate the mouth and lips, smooth away crow’s feet and much, much more.
Botox injections are often combined simultaneously with soft tissue fillers to provide total non-surgical rejuvenation. Experience is paramount for natural, safe and effective results – and our incredible nurse injectors are among the most experienced in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area.
Your injections will be done in the comfort of our Skin Klinic in Scottsdale, where it is our goal to provide the best Botox Scottsdale has available.
During the treatment, we will inject precise amounts of Botox into your skin and muscles. These injections will be placed strategically to ensure that your wrinkles fade away – but your ability to express yourself and move your face with ease is preserved.
The entire injection process will take about ten minutes, at which point you will be free to return to your normal daily routine right away.
During your initial consultation, we will review your medical history and discuss your aesthetic goals to determine if Botox injections are right for you.

Our staff can answer all of your questions during your initial consultation. In the meantime, here is a quick look at some of the most commonly asked questions we receive from our Paradise Valley patients.
Some patients report that being injected with Botox feels like a pinch. Ice may be used to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied before administering your treatment.
Bruising after your Botox injections happens less than 20% of the time. Taking the herb Arnica Montana either before or immediately after the injections and avoiding aspirin and blood thinning supplements such as fish oil prior to your procedure will also reduce your chances in bruising and give the best results in Botox Phoenix has to offer.
You will begin to notice results 7-10 days after your injections.
Botox generally lasts between 3-4 months, enabling patients to control the extent of their treatments. Wrinkles will gradually appear as the effect of the Botox wears off.
Many of our clients enjoy their Botox injections without experiencing any side effects or risks. When they do occur, patients have reported mild numbness or tingling, mild swelling, a temporary headache, temporary nausea, and temporary eyelid or eyebrow drooping. These risks can be minimized by avoiding rubbing the treatment area after your injections.
After your treatment, you can resume your day with very few restrictions. We simply ask that you do not exercise or lie flat for 4 hours following your treatment and do not rub or massage the injection site.
