Wrinkles, forehead frown lines, and fine lines often appear on the face as part of the aging process, but genetics, overexposure to the sun, and even smoking can also cause them to make an unwanted appearance.
If you’re looking for a way to diminish them and have a more youthful complexion, you may have considered surgical cosmetic solutions like a facelift. However, there’s now a minimally-invasive alternative that offers effective results: Botox® injections.
Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States, with several million injections administered each year. At Renew MD, we provide tailored Botox® treatments for all clients to address specific cosmetic concerns.
Our expert team of Nurse Practitioners and Physicians Assistant safely administer Botox® injections to clients from our medical spa in Reno, NV.

How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® contains a neurotoxin, onabotulinumtoxinA. It’s a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic injection that temporarily relaxes muscles and blocks nerves that cause wrinkles to appear. It’s a quick treatment and minimally-invasive as it involves an injection from a needle.
When Botox® gets injected into specific target areas, it prevents certain muscles from contracting when smiling, frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows. The effects of Botox® result in noticeably smoother frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet lines, and forehead.
If you decide to have Botox® injections, it makes sense to select a provider that is both experienced and skilled in administering them. Renew MD is one of the leading providers of cosmetic Botox® treatments in the Reno, NV area.
Benefits of Botox®
Perhaps the most significant advantage of Botox® is how it negates the need to have a facelift for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and forehead lines. Botox® is a muscle relaxant and doesn’t require patients to have surgical procedures.
Another advantage of Botox® is that you can see the effects of the injections shortly after your treatment session. Most of our clients notice the positive impact of Botox® within 7 to 10 days after their injections.
Botox® injections are also quick to administer. For most clients, Botox® injections are complete within ten to fifteen minutes. They are the perfect cosmetic treatment to have during your lunch break, and there’s no downtime associated with Botox®.
Some clients may experience minor swelling or redness at the injection sites. But, they will typically go away around two to three days after your Botox® treatment session.
Am I a Candidate for Botox®?
You might be an ideal candidate for Botox® injectables if you experience noticeable facial wrinkles or forehead lines, and you want to address them through non-surgical means. Botox® could also be for you if you’re committed to maintaining your wrinkle-free look.
Botox® injections typically last around three to four months, so you may need quarterly maintenance injections to continue enjoying your newly rejuvenated, youthful appearance.
You’re also a good candidate for Botox® if you want a cosmetic treatment that offers natural results.
