While Botox is a very common aesthetic procedure, it’s important to make sure that you pick a trusted injector who brings years of expertise and quality, personalized care. Picking the right injector DOES make a difference in your results, and plays into supporting your broader aesthetic goals. 

First and foremost, it is important to select a board-certified, medically-trained professional who has experience performing cosmetic Botox procedures. Most importantly, it is important to find an injector who truly listens to you, answers all of your questions, and makes sure that your concerns and needs are addressed. 


How does Botox work?

Botox and other Tox treatments, like Xeomin, Jeuveau and Dysport, contain a neurotoxin that temporarily freezes muscles in place, softening fine lines and wrinkles while preventing new ones from forming. The result is smoother, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. 

These injectables are among the most common aesthetic treatments performed at med spas. In fact, millions of people each year seek this treatment to reduce signs of aging in a natural-looking way. 

Botox is safe and effective, however some patients do experience side effects, and in rare cases, more severe reactions. This is why it’s important for your injector to have proper medical training and experience to help manage and mitigate any complications.


What is Botox Used to Treat?

Cosmetic Botox and other wrinkle relaxers are used to treat or prevent fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. These injectables are most commonly used around the brows, forehead, eyes, nose and cheeks – all areas where wrinkles form either when moving the face, or form over the years as collagen and elastin production slows. 

While aging is a natural part of the human process, addressing areas of concern gives you full confidence to walk into every room feeling your best. Results take a few days to up to 14 days to show, and can last for several months without need for a touch up. Treatments can be adjusted to give you softer, more natural results to more noticeable, dramatic results. 

Botox can also be used in tandem with other treatments, like chemical peels, to enhance and boost visible results. Ask about what treatments are available to help you gain visible results faster. 


What results will I notice from Botox? Will my face change?

The result of Botox in most cases is subtle but provides a noticeably smoother and tighter look to treated areas. You will look slightly different as your skin may appear smoother or more taut, but your face will not change overall. Think of the result almost like a smoothing filter on social media. Unlike dermal fillers, Botox is used only to relax wrinkles and does not add volume to nor create definition in facial features. 

Results from wrinkle-relaxers are not permanent and start to wear off after several months. At that visit, you can work with Dr. Ericsson to assess how much Botox is needed to sustain results, if you’d like to treat additional areas, and discuss any additional treatments that make sense for your aesthetic goals. 


Does getting Botox hurt? 

During your appointment the doctor will have you make a series of facial movements so that she can assess which areas need treatment. She will then map and sterilize the area/s. You will experience a series of small pin pricks (similar to a mosquito bite or bee sting) in the treated areas, as the doctor injects into the facial muscles. While not necessarily painful, some clients experience mild discomfort for several minutes to several hours after treatment. The entire appointment is fairly quick, and you can resume most normal activities immediately after your visit. 


Medical Training and Expertise Matters 

Ericsson Aesthetics is operated by Dr. Kristina Ericsson, board-certified physician and expert-trainer in injectables. In fact, Dr. Ericsson is one of the best, highly-experienced injectors in the field of medical aesthetics. 

She is a nationally-recognized injectable trainer in both beginning and advanced techniques; and continues to stay current on new techniques that will benefit both her patients and the patients of her trainees across the country. This means that you are not only gaining access to an expert in the field, but are receiving the most up-to-date care for the best results. 


Consistency and Face-time with your Injector

Aesthetic services are deeply personal and your relationship with your injector does matter. Two-way communication is important for developing trust with your provider, and ensuring that you achieve your desired results. 

Consistency is also key. Seeing the same injector at each appointment ensures that you get a seamless, personalized experience with someone who is acquainted with you and knows your aesthetic goals. Someone who is familiar with your face, past treatment and your ideal aesthetic profile can help you not only maintain your look, but also make recommendations on additional treatments that can enhance your results and give you the glow you want. 

At Ericsson Aesthetics, you will visit with Dr. Kristina Ericsson each appointment. She takes time to listen to your needs and gets to know your individual desired outcome. Appointments are scheduled to provide ample time to ask questions and make sure you are well-informed before pursuing a treatment. From there, she applies her expertise to make recommendations on treatments that will work best to get you results you will love.
