Prevent Wrinkle Formation
Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment on the market. At Envision Aesthetics, we offer Botox in Rochester, New York to treat and prevent wrinkles caused by expressions like smiling, frowning, or squinting. Today, patients begin receiving Botox® at our Rochester locations as early as their mid-20s to prevent wrinkles from forming and patients can benefit from Botox well into their 90s. Our goal is to help you look your best, naturally.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a brand name for the bacterium clostridium botulinum that prevents the release of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which causes muscle cells to contract. Without that contraction, the muscles relax, and that helps your skin appear smoother and more youthful. Botulinum toxin has been known for over a century, and has been used for medical purposes for over 50 years. In 2002, it was approved for relaxing unwanted frown lines between the eyes and forehead. Other brands used at Envision Aesthetics are Dysport® and Xeomin®.
There’s a common misconception that Botox freezes the muscles and will cause your face to become unnaturally stiff. When your injections are done by Dr. Whipple at Envision Aesthetics, getting Botox in Rochester will give you beautiful, natural results. We take the time to fully understand your needs so that we administer the perfect amount for you. The procedure shouldn’t shock those around you; instead your friends and family will notice that you look more rested and even happier.
Botox is sent by manufacturers as a crystalline substance. Before it’s able to be injected, the substance is diluted by saline or another liquid. At Envision Aesthetics, you won’t have to worry about getting less Botox than what you paid for due to over dilution. We pride ourselves on giving high-quality procedures that will bring you the gorgeous results you’ve been looking for.
The most commonly known, and first to receive FDA-approval, of the neuromodulators, BOTOX Cosmetic is the fastest-acting and an extremely precise neurotoxin. Results can be seen within 48 hours and typically last for 3-6 months.
Though all neuromodulators are formulated to do the same thing, they have subtle differences that make some more suited than others for certain wrinkles and folds. Dysport is a better option for treating larger surface areas, as it diffuses better in the skin. The effects of Dysport injections are seen in 2-3 days.
Of the three neuromodulators, Xeomin is considered a “naked injectable,” meaning that it has no additives. The benefit to this is that your body is less likely to become resistant to it. The onset of Xeomin is comparatively longer than the other two, with results being seen after 3-4 days.

Before getting Botox in Rochester with Envision Aesthetics, you’ll have the option to meet with us for an one-hour free consultation. During the consultation we’ll speak with you about what your goals are and the problem areas you want to improve. A specialist will examine your skin, including the texture, thickness, elasticity, and the amount of wrinkling. This will help us understand how many units you will need to reach your goals. Not all wrinkles will benefit from Botox®. Instead we recommend looking at our other options at Envision such as filler injections.
You’ll want to let us know about your medical background, especially if you’ve had Botox injections done within the past four months. Envision Aesthetics also needs to know if you take any muscle relaxers, sleeping aids, or allergy medications. This ensures that we are fully aware of your medical needs so that the procedure is done safely and properly. If you take blood thinners, you may want to stop taking them several days before your Botox in Rochester to reduce the amount of bruising and bleeding. It’s also best to avoid alcohol at least a week before your procedure.
When it’s time for your Botox procedure, we’ll have you slightly raised on an exam table. We want to make sure you’re as relaxed and comfortable as possible. During the procedure, we’ll ask you to contract your facial muscles so that we can determine exactly where the Botox will be injected. For precision and accuracy, our specialists will mark each area. Those specified areas will then be cleaned by a non-alcohol solution before the muscles are injected. During the injections, we’ll ask that you contract your facial muscles. A common injection pattern is four or five areas on each side of the forehead along with two or three injections on the side of the eyes.
Although the injections may feel like a quick prick, our patients find that getting Botox in Rochester is virtually painless. Based on the amount of injections needed, the process can take around 5 minutes. At Envision Aesthetics, our professionals make the procedure simple and easy, so you can rest easy knowing that we have you taken care of.
Once your procedure is done, you’re free to go and enjoy the rest of the day. The great thing about Botox injections is that there’s no recovery time. It’s perfect if you want to stop by during a lunch break or your Saturday afternoon errand runs. Either way, Envision Aesthetics makes sure that you’re in and out of your appointment for Botox in Rochester.
It’s important to note that you’ll want to avoid taking aspirin, such as ibuprofen, after your procedure. Doing so could cause additional bruising that may be a cause of concern. For deeper wrinkles, we may recommend that you come in for two to three sessions instead of one to ensure you get the results you’re looking for. For optimal results, especially for the lines between the eyebrows, we recommend combining your Botox injections with fillers.
You will begin to notice improvements between 24 and 48 hours after a Botox procedure and last for about 3 to 6 months. If you want to maintain your wrinkle-free look, be sure to schedule another appointment with us for more injections.
Patients may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
