Decades Of Beautiful Results

When it comes to reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, there are few products that rival the natural-looking results that Botulinum (AKA Botox) provides. Botox is a quick and easy injectable treatment that restores a smooth and youthful appearance by ridding the face of lines and wrinkles. At The Spiegel Center, our team of experts reliably offers some of the best Botox results in the Boston Area.

How Does Botox Work?

When you smile, frown, sneeze, or make any other facial expression, muscles in your face contract. Habitual expressions create lines and wrinkles that grow more prominent over time, remaining even while your face is at rest. Botox reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that create them. 

Botox belongs to a family of chemicals called neuromodulators that also includes Dysport®, Daxxify®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin®. When injected into the facial muscles, neuromodulators block movement signals sent from the nerves to the muscles, which prevents the muscles from contracting.  

Dynamic Wrinkles VS. Static Wrinkles

In youthful skin, proteins called collagen and elastin keep the skin supple, tight, and smooth even after being stretched. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin; as a result, fine lines and wrinkles develop. There are two main types of wrinkles: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. 

Dynamic Wrinkles

Dynamic wrinkles appear when you smile, squint, frown, yawn, or make any sort of facial movement. They form because the underlying muscles stretch and contract. Dynamic wrinkles disappear once you stop the facial movement. Botox is well-suited for reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Common dynamic wrinkles include:

  • Frown line (or the “elevens”)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Chin wrinkles (AKA orange peel)
  • Platysma bands of the neck

Static Wrinkles

Static wrinkles are always visible, even when the face is at rest. They form as a result of gravity and the reduction of collagen and elastin in the skin as we age. Static wrinkles are inevitable, though good skin care can delay their formation. Dermal fillers are typically used over Botox to correct static wrinkles. This type of wrinkle is often found in the following areas:

  • Undereyes
  • Across the cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds between the nose and the corners of the mouth
  • Marionette lines extending from the corners of the mouth downward 
  • Horizontal lines along the neck

The Benefits Of BOTOX®

BOTOX® is FDA-approved to treat dynamic wrinkles, helping your face remain smooth and youthful while you smile or make other facial expressions. BOTOX® can also help prevent static wrinkles from forming, by preventing the skin from being stretched and creased over time.  BOTOX® can safely be used to treat:

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Frown lines (brow furrows)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Bunny lines around the nose
  • Gummy smile
  • Smile lines
  • Masseter (jaw slimming) and TMJ (Jawtox)
  • Chin wrinkles (orange peel)
  • Neck lines (Nefertiti snatched jaw)

Other Uses for Botox 

Botox is also indicated for use in a variety of non-cosmetic issues, like excessive underarm sweating, chronic migraines, and teeth grinding. While some uses of Botox are FDA-approved, others are “off-label.”

Baby Botox & MicroBotox

Baby Botox

Baby Botox refers to smaller Botox injections to achieve a more subtle and natural-looking result. It is often used to treat fine lines and wrinkles in younger patients who want to maintain their youthful appearance without looking overdone. 

Baby Botox works like regular Botox injections; however, the lower dose ensures the muscles are not entirely paralyzed but slightly relaxed. This results in a more natural-looking appearance, with fewer wrinkles and fine lines, but without the "frozen" look that can sometimes occur with higher doses of Botox. Baby Botox is typically used in areas such as the following:

  • Forehead
  • Crow's feet
  • Frown lines between the eyebrows


    MicroBotox is a technique that involves using tiny amounts of Botox injections to treat the skin on a more superficial level. This technique is known as "mesobotox" or "skin botox."

    Unlike traditional Botox injections in Boston, which are injected into the muscle, MicroBotox is injected into the skin. The injections are delivered using a very fine needle, and the Botox is distributed in a grid-like pattern over the treatment area to treat fine lines and wrinkles.

    MicroBotox has many other benefits for the skin, including:

    • Reducing oil production
    • Minimizing pore size
    • Improving skin tone and texture

    Because MicroBotox is injected into the skin rather than the muscle, it is considered a more gentle and subtle form of Botox treatment. It is often used in areas such as:

    • Forehead
    • Around the eyes
    • Around the mouth

      What to Expect from Your Boston BOTOX®  Treatment

      BOTOX® injections are performed in-office at The Spiegel Center in Newton, Massachusetts. The injection process only takes around 30 minutes to perform. While BOTOX® injections produce little-to-no discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be applied to provide additional comfort. The face will be cleansed and the areas where the injections will be made may be marked.

      BOTOX® is a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment. Little to no downtime is required following your BOTOX® treatment in Boston, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. There may be a small amount of redness as well as some light swelling or a small bruise around the injection sites.

      How Should I Prepare For BOTOX® Injections?

      As with any injectable treatment, bruising and swelling may occur, and as such, we recommend avoiding painkillers such as aspirin and ibuprofen for two weeks prior to your Botox® treatment. Similarly, we suggest avoiding excessive consumption of fish or fish oil pills because these are blood thinners and may cause bruising to last longer.

      If you happen to be taking beta blockers or any blood-pressure medications, consult your physician to see whether the dosages of any of these medicines need to be altered. You can also consider taking arnica a day or so before your treatment and avoid strenuous activity, including yoga, following your treatment to minimize bruising. 

      BOTOX® Results

      It can take several days before you begin to see the results of your BOTOX® treatment in Boston. After three to five days, the muscles should begin to weaken. More dramatic results should be visible after 10 days or so. BOTOX® is often able to provide results that last for around three months or longer. Routine BOTOX® injections are recommended to maintain your results. BOTOX® is one brand of botulinum neuromodulator that may be used. Others include Dysport®, Daxxify®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin®.

      BOTOX® Cost

      Each patient is unique and will have different areas of the face they want to address. The cost of your BOTOX® treatment in Boston will be based on the area, and the amount of BOTOX® needed to reach your desired aesthetic results. Price can be determined during your consultation at The Spiegel Center, where your BOTOX® treatment is curated to achieve your aesthetic goal, rather than “By the unit.”

      Other Options For Wrinkle Reduction

      There are several different botulinum options, including Dysport®, Daxxify®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin®. These products are similar to BOTOX® and are also used to temporarily weaken facial muscles. Some people have better or faster results with one product versus another, and our experts can help you determine the right medication for you during your BOTOX® consultation in Boston.
