What is Botox®?
BOTOX® is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. BOTOX® has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust.
BOTOX® contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX®. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX®.
How Does Botox® Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr. Spencer will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?
You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet
BOTOX® is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression.
When will I see results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
How long does the treatment take?
Dr. Spencer will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
What is the average treatment cost?
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of Dr. Spencer who is administering your treatment.
BOTOX® is a technique-sensitive treatment.
Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX®. It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

1Individual results may vary. 2All manufacturer claims, in regards to the benefits, process, length/effectiveness of treatments, how soon you’ll see results or heal, or claims of minimal side effects such as minor redness or mild discomfort or no downtime, are provided by the pharmaceutical manufacturers as part of their guidelines in promoting their product and are backed by case studies/peer-reviewed publications and are published on their individual websites. 3Testimonials are the opinions of real clients that wanted to provide them and express their opinion to others. When written, the only editing done was to fix minor grammatical/syntax errors and/or to truncate extended testimonials that, while nice, went a bit long. Video testimonials are unedited. 4Treatments and services that are time-related (such as fees per a “20 minute session”) are rooted in the fact that most appointments (i.e. the historical average amount of time required to complete most areas we treat) take that amount of time; however, it may be recommended or advised or necessary that more than one session time is required to achieve whatever affect you’re looking for (such as someone wanting to treat many areas of their body vs someone simply wanting to treat their hands). A quick consultation in our office will provide you the exact time required to treat whatever you wish since treatment areas have a direct impact on time required to treat such areas. 5Superlatives, when describing services/products, are manufacturer claims and, in the end, it’s your opinion as to what service/product is right/effective/best for you. 6Internal comparison claims comparing one technology to another (such as stating that a new product is x% better than the previous model, similar to how a 2018 model vehicle has many advances/improvements over a 2010 vehicle), when comparisons are done within the same company’s lineup, are the manufacturer’s statement-of-fact and reflect the latest science and/or breakthrough that, when released as a product, is the best/most effective at the time within their own product lineup — they are not claims comparing their product against other manufacturers’ products. 7Videos, which we have chosen to add links to on our website, are either local television coverage pieces or third-party videos that we feel are great for learning and gaining an overview of the process of several services we offer; but third-party videos (e.g. those in the public domain, such as YouTube) in no way should be construed as an endorsement of Nuderma Health and Med Spa and/or our services specifically. They are meant as an awareness tool to help you decide upon common treatments provided by Nuderma Health and Med Spa and med spa providers nationwide. Some videos are produced by the pharmaceutical manufacturers and others are by service providers.
