Botulinum toxin injections have become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market today. It is so effective at reducing wrinkles that over 800,000 patients have chosen to receive them annually since 2001. Botox© works by temporarily blocking the nerve transmissions to the treated area, thus smoothing out the skin. Especially effective at treating frown lines, crow’s feet, and the horizontal lines of the forehead, it is a safe way to quickly and easily reduce wrinkles with little or no down time or discomfort.
Botox© Outpatient Procedures
Performed as an outpatient procedure at Sedona MediSpa, the process involves a series of pinprick size injections administered through a very fine needle. The actual number of injections depends on the area being treated. A smoothing effect takes place by the end of the first week, and the results last anywhere from between three to six months. There are few potential adverse side effects, and many patients even report a reduction in tension type headaches following their treatment.
Botox© FDA-approved for Cosmetic Use
Our staff may recommend Botox© as a stand-alone procedure, or in conjunction with Microdermabrasion treatment or peels and fillers for maximum effect. Since there is no down time associated with these injections, you can book an appointment in your off hours, and return to work without your colleagues being any the wiser!

Frequently referred to as “double chin,” submental fullness can appear whether or not you are overweight. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable used to treat moderate to severe fat in the chin. Kybella® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies, which works to break down and absorb dietary fat.
Surveys by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery show that people are just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.*
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
