Kansas City Plastic Surgeon Serving Overland Park, Leawood & Nearby Areas Of Kansas & Missouri 

As you age, muscle tension and repetitive motion can allow creases, fine lines, and deep wrinkles to develop throughout the face and neck. These signs of aging can detract from your appearance, making you look older than you feel. 

Surgical options such as facelifts and blepharoplasty can make dramatic improvements and take years off of your appearance. These more invasive methods are not suitable or necessary for every individual. Neuromodulators offer a safe, effective, non-surgical way to reduce or eliminate lines and wrinkles throughout the face and neck. 

If you are interested in learning about non-surgical skin rejuvenation in Kansas City, KS, please call Advanced Cosmetic Surgery at 913-341-2188 to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Levi Young. 

What Is BOTOX®? 

BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first neuromodulator approved for cosmetic use. It remains the most popular.  The active ingredient in all neuromodulators is botulinum type A, a neurotoxin complex that has shown the ability to ease muscle tension and temporarily decrease the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic disrupts but does not destroy the signal between nerves and muscles. As time passes, the connection will repair itself, and the effects of your treatment will wear off. 

Candidates for Botox 

Candidates for Botox must be in generally good health with no active skin infections. Like all neuromodulators, BOTOX® Cosmetic interrupts the signal between nerves and muscles, allowing tension to ease and overlying skin to smooth. This helps eliminate the following: 

  • Forehead Creases and Furrows 
  • Frown Lines (the 11s in between the eyebrows) 
  • Crow’s Feet (horizontal lines at the outside corner of the eyes) 
  • Bunny Lines (horizontal lines on the bridge of the nose) 
  • Nasolabial Folds (parenthetical laugh lines around the upper lip) 
  • Marionette Lines (vertical lines that frame the chin) 
  • Neck Bands 

The best way to learn where BOTOX® Cosmetic in Kansas City, KC, may prove useful for you is through a one-on-one consultation at the Leawood office of Dr. Young. During this consultation, Dr. Young will carefully assess your areas of concern and provide honest information about all your treatment options. 

Botox Procedure 

During your Botox procedure, your professional injector will carefully inject small amounts of Botulinum toxin into your treatment muscles, weakening the muscles and preserving the youthfulness of your skin. Botox injections typically take 15 minutes or less.  

BOTOX® Results and Recovery

  • 2-3 Days
  • High Activity

Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic may be noticeable within two to three days – but full results may take up to 14 days to emerge. Once finalized, your results will last three to four months, depending on factors including how much BOTOX® Cosmetic was used and which face areas were treated.  

If you are concerned about results diminishing, you can schedule touch-up treatments at regular intervals. This is something Dr. Young can discuss in greater detail during your initial consultation. 

BOTOX® Cosmetic in Kansas City, KC, like all neuromodulators, is temporary. Once the active ingredient has worn off, your skin will return to the same condition it was in prior to treatment. Dr. Young offers a selection of non-surgical treatments, including chemical peel, laser skin resurfacing, and photo facials that can be used in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic to address various skin imperfections unrelated to wrinkles. 

Common BOTOX® Cosmetic side effects include: 

  • Redness or Irritation at the Injection Site 
  • Swelling or Bruising Around Injections 
  • Drooping Eyelid or Lips 
  • Muscle Weakness or Stiffness 
  • Difficulties Swallowing 
  • Headache
