Ready to talk the TOX? Smiling, frowning, raising our eyebrows—they’re all part of how we express ourselves and all the things we’re feeling. The bad news? They leave lines in our skin over time and keep us from looking like our freshest and most youthful selves. Luckily, there’s a solution: BOTOX—and its “cousin” Dysport®!

At our Tigard, OR, and Vancouver, WA, med spa, we use BOTOX® Cosmetic to smooth away dynamic wrinkles and give you a refreshed look without ever making you look “overdone.” It’s super quick, easy, and effective. There’s a reason it’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the entire world and Amelie is conveniently located near you!

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an FDA-approved injectable neurotoxin with more than 25 years of successful medical and cosmetic applications behind it. It’s a massively popular anti-aging treatment, thanks to its many perks, including:

  • Minimally invasive
  • No downtime
  • Proven results

It’s a quick, practically painless way to look younger and fresher without a big commitment or a big price tag.

How Does BOTOX Work?

Botox® is an injectable with a 25-year track record of successful medical and cosmetic applications. The most popular use for Botox® is for aesthetic anti-aging purposes.

The active ingredient in the drug, a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, blocks the nerve signals that communicate with your muscles and cause them to flex. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines from repeated muscle movements, particularly on your face. Injectors also use Botox® to treat several other medical conditions and symptoms from overactive muscles.

At Amélie, the team uses very fine needles to place your Botox® injections. They also use distraction techniques and ice to make your treatment as painless as possible.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Botox?

Botox is commonly used to treat crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and forehead lines. It can also be used for other cosmetic and medical purposes, including jawline slimming and treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

Is the Procedure Painful?

Most people describe Botox injections as minimally uncomfortable. A very fine needle is used, and the discomfort is usually brief. Some providers offer numbing cream or ice to further minimize any discomfort.

How Long Does a Botox Treatment Take?

The procedure is quick and typically takes around 10-15 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.

When Will I See Results? How Long Will They Last?

Results typically become noticeable within a few days to two weeks after treatment. The effects of Botox usually last about 3 to 4 months. Individual results may vary.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Common side effects are mild and temporary, including slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites. In rare cases, there can be temporary drooping of nearby muscles, which usually resolves on its own.

Can Anyone Get Botox?

Most adults who are in good general health and have realistic expectations can consider Botox. Pregnant or breastfeeding women, individuals with certain neurological disorders, and those with allergies to Botox components should avoid the treatment.

Will I Look Frozen or Unnatural After Botox?

The goal of Botox is to achieve a natural-looking result. When administered by a skilled and experienced medical professional, Botox should not leave you looking frozen or expressionless. Your ability to express emotions will be preserved, just with reduced wrinkles.

Is There Downtime After Botox?

There’s typically no downtime after Botox treatment. You can resume most of your regular activities immediately. However, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and lying down for a few hours after the procedure.

How Much Does Botox Cost?

At our Tigard, OR and Vancouver, WA med spa, BOTOX is priced per unit, so your cost will vary depending on how many units are injected. Our Amélie members get our very best BOTOX and Dysport price at $14/unit.

Which Areas Can I Target With BOTOX Injections?

While wrinkles are the most widely recognized target for BOTOX, it can treat other features, too. Amélie’s menu of BOTOX services includes:

Between the Brows

Between the Brows specifically addresses prominent “11s” or frown lines between your eyebrows.

Fresh Face

The Fresh Face treatment addresses several wrinkles on the upper half of your face, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows.

Bright Eyes

Bright Eyes diminishes crow’s feet on the outer corners of your eyes.

Lip Flip

Lip Flip reduces lines and wrinkles on and around your lips. It also helps your upper lip look more voluminous.

Smooth Sailing

Smooth Sailing addresses forehead lines and frown lines at the same time.

Facial Slimming

The team at Amélie can use BOTOX injections to help relax and shrink an overdeveloped masseter muscle in your jaw and keep it from clenching.


Many people don’t realize BOTOX can treat excessive sweating, specifically under your armpits. The condition is called hyperhidrosis, and it responds well to BOTOX injections.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?

The team at Amélie will talk with you about your specific goals for treatment to determine whether or not BOTOX is the best option for you. You might be a candidate if:

  • You’re over 18
  • You’re not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have no active skin conditions
  • You have realistic expectations

We may recommend BOTOX to you as a preventative measure even before you develop facial wrinkles if you’re concerned about getting them. Or, depending on the types of wrinkles you have, we may suggest other treatments, like dermal fillers or HALO™ laser skin resurfacing.

What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?

At Amélie, our experienced injectors use very fine needles to place your BOTOX injections in and around your targeted areas. They also use distraction techniques and ice to make your treatment as painless as possible. (Don’t stress about the needle pinch—most people say it feels like a little bug bite!)

Appointments are super quick—we’re talking less than 20 minutes in most cases.

What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?

There’s basically no recovery involved with BOTOX. You can head right back to work, school, or whatever else you’ve got planned. You might have some redness around your injection sites, but that usually goes away within a day.

When Will I See My BOTOX Results?

Results typically show up after about 5 to 10 days. (Dysport is a little faster and only takes about 2 days.) You can expect your results to last about 3 to 4 months.
