Popular among both men and women, BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that addresses wrinkles caused by underlying facial muscles that contract every time you smile, laugh, or frown. The more emotion you show, the deeper these wrinkles and lines are likely to be. While you may have earned your worry lines, you don’t have to show them. The experienced team at Q the Medical Spa can help you look naturally refreshed, relaxed, and more youthful with quick, simple BOTOX treatments in Rochester and Victor, NY.
People visit our med spa for BOTOX from Syracuse, Pittsford, and other New York communities to smooth away lines and enjoy a fresh new expression.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic, which contains a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, partially blocks the nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines causing the muscles to relax. Once the treated facial muscles relax, the overlying skin gradually becomes smooth and unwrinkled. Untreated facial muscles will still function normally allowing you to make natural expressions.

Who Is a Candidate for BOTOX Injections?
Most BOTOX clients desire a more youthful appearance. Some prefer to look less “angry”, while others are concerned about preventing wrinkles in the first place. Whatever the reason, the outcomes are the same. Wrinkles that are created by muscle movement are decreased and smoothed. Commonly treated concerns include:
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
- Lines around the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Horizontal forehead creases
Sagging corners of the mouth and chin creases may also be reduced with BOTOX injections, but results vary among individuals. BOTOX will not affect wrinkles that are from sun exposure or those that are not muscle related; instead, we may recommend a dermal filler such JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®. BOTOX will not lift sagging skin or replace the need for a facelift or brow lift.
Clients who are pregnant or have neurological problems are not candidates, but as with all cosmetic procedures check with your provider.
Can BOTOX Be Combined With Other Treatments?
Many women and men choose to combine BOTOX injections with other facial rejuvenation treatments for greater enhancement. Popular choices include:
- BroadBand Light (BBL™) therapy clears away redness and excess brown pigmentation such as freckles and age spots while renewing collagen production for skin that looks and feels more youthful.
- Dermal fillers complement the effects of BOTOX by replacing volume around the eyes, in smile lines, on the cheeks, and in other areas of the face.
- RF microneedling creates tiny injuries in the skin to renew collagen production and improve tone and texture.
At your consultation, an experienced aesthetic specialist from our team will determine if you could benefit from a combination of treatments and then create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
What to Expect During Your BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX treatments are simple and safe. Your experienced injector uses a tiny needle to allow greater precision in delivery of BOTOX to the specified facial area. Most clients remark that there is minimal discomfort during the quick injections, comparing the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or anesthetic is required.
What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?
There is little to no downtime required after a BOTOX treatment. You can resume most normal activities immediately after treatment.
What Kinds of Results Can I Expect After BOTOX?
BOTOX generally takes 5 to 7 days to take effect. The results are temporary, lasting about 3 to 4 months with individual variations. Temporary bruising at the injection site is the most common side effect. This is different for each client and their normal response to any tissue change.
