Sedona Botox | Botox Videos, Indications, etc.
See what Botox can do for you
Here are the common injection sites I use for Botox treatments in Sedona:
- Glabellar Lines
These are the lines between our eyebrows that look like the number 11.
- Forehead lines/wrinkling
- Early to Severe Lateral Canthal Lines (Crows Feet)
- Vertical lip line softening
- Chin (softening or elimination of orange peel)
- Upturn to corners of mouth (for more youthful lower face)
- Raising of eyebrows (to assist with decreasing the early hooding of eyelids)
Remember that Botox is used cautiously in those who are 65 years of age or older due to the naturally occurring laxity of muscles. Botox is a wonderful treatment to start at an early age in that it helps prevent wrinkling and lines.
Regular upkeep of Botox every 3-4 months is recommended to maintain results and prevention of new lining. Regular upkeep will also keep your cost down as less product will be required.
Note: More is not necessarily better. In my experience I am achieving optimal results with far fewer units than clients are traditionally treated and charged.
Precise control for predictable outcomes of Botox from a single treatment

The Science of BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.1 Botulinum toxins have been studied for more than 100 years.
In the late 1890s, scientists first identified C. botulinum as a cause of food poisoning (botulism). Scientists continued to study its effects, exploring its therapeutic uses in the late 1960s.(2) By 1989, BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) was approved for medical use.(3) The same product with dosing specific to glabellar lines was approved as BOTOX® Cosmetic in 2002.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic formulation
In nature, the botulinum neurotoxin associates with complementary nontoxic accessory proteins to produce protein complexes.(4,5)
The role of accessory proteins
Studies show botulinum neurotoxin type A accessory proteins help stabilize the core neurotoxin against thermal and pH stress.(6,7) BOTOX® Cosmetic includes these protective proteins.
Biologics are inherently unique
Biological products (biologics), like botulinum toxins, are inherently unique and cannot be easily replicated:(9)
Changes in manufacturing could result in changes to the biological molecule that could profoundly alter the efficacy or safety profile.
