Botox® in Hyannis & Cape Cod, MA

Taking care of your skin can be an overwhelming task. The natural loss of collagen production and the constant motion of our skin during facial expressions can lead to lines that make us look older. However, our patients are happy to find out that non-invasive treatment options for smooth skin exist and are readily available! Neuromodulators like Botox and Daxxify have been used for years in reputable clinics to reduce signs of aging. At Laser Aesthetics of Cape Cod, we are proud to bring these trusted injectable treatments to our patients in Hyannis and Cape Cod, MA.

What Is Botox?

Botox is one of the most well-known neurotoxins in cosmetic medicine. It works by blocking muscle contractions using an ingredient known as botulinum toxin type A. This neuromodulator injection is commonly used to reduce the type of wrinkles that are caused by movement, such as forehead lines or frown lines.

How Does Botox Work?

Neuromodulators work directly on the nerves responsible for activating facial muscles. When the formulation is injected, it disrupts the transmission of the nerve impulses that are necessary for these muscles to contract by attaching to the nerve endings. This process results in a noticeable softening of expression-related wrinkles, such as those around the eyes and forehead. Over time, the nerve endings regenerate and movement is renewed in the muscles.

What Are the Benefits of Botox?

Reduction of Frown Lines

You can experience noticeable Botox results in the form of diminished frown lines. These lines, which are often a result of repeated facial expressions, can be effectively softened, offering a more relaxed and youthful facial contour.

Improvement of Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles, which are a common concern for many, can be significantly improved with injectable neurotoxins like Botox. This treatment smooths out the lines, resulting in a more even and refreshed forehead appearance.

Treatment of Crow’s Feet

Botox and other anti-wrinkle injections specifically target crow’s feet, those fine lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes. Regular treatment can significantly diminish their appearance, enhancing the overall look of the eyes.

Non-Invasive Wrinkle Treatment

As a neuromodulator, Botox offers a non-invasive solution to combat wrinkles. This approach allows for cosmetic improvement without surgery or any obvious signs that you’ve had “work done.” 

No Downtime

Botox injections allow for an immediate return to daily life post-treatment, presenting an efficient solution for those with demanding schedules. The absence of recovery time means you can continue your day without interruption, a major benefit for active individuals.

Fast Treatments

Botulinum toxin treatments won’t cause a major disruption to your schedule and are known for their quick application. Sessions can take less than 30 minutes, allowing you to get to the clinic and back to your day all within your lunch break.

Minimal Discomfort During Treatment

Patients typically report minimal discomfort during injectable neurotoxin sessions. This aspect, along with the treatment’s effectiveness, contributes to its widespread popularity and patient satisfaction.


What Other Neuromodulators Do We Offer?

What Is Daxxify®?

Daxxify is the newest addition to the field of anti-wrinkle injections, aimed at diminishing facial lines with a unique approach. This option in cosmetic treatments specifically focuses on smoothing out wrinkles between the eyebrows and offers an alternative to traditional methods. Its distinct formulation is crafted to provide a visibly rejuvenated and refreshed appearance that can last.

Daxxify vs. Botox: What’s the Difference?

Daxxify and Botox differ in composition and duration of effect. Daxxify stands out with its peptide-based stabilizer, which does not use any human or animal byproducts. This allows Daxxify to last slightly longer, up to six or nine months in some cases. Botox, on the other hand, uses human serum albumin as its stabilizer and has a well-established track record in providing effective treatment. Both products have their distinct advantages, making them suitable for different needs and preferences in managing frown lines and other wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

Botox results usually last three to four months. For some people, Botox injections can last up to six months. These results can depend on the quality of your skin, how fast your body metabolizes the medication, and how much movement and expression you have in your face.

Botox results can be seen within three to seven days after treatment, offering a relatively quick transformation. The full effect of Botox typically becomes apparent within two weeks, revealing a smoother, more youthful appearance. This prompt onset of results makes Botox an attractive option for those seeking fast improvements in their appearance.

Your appointment will start with a consultation where we will discuss your goals and examine your wrinkles and expressions. Then we will perform the injections, which usually take around 15 minutes. Botox injections don’t typically cause discoloration, so your results will look natural and allow you to be discreet. Most patients do not need anesthetic for their injections. Only a few injections with a small needle are administered into the muscles that can cause dynamic wrinkles.
