At Avanti Medical Center, our team happily offers patients in and near Lehi, UT BOTOX injections to help combat signs of aging and rejuvenate the skin for a smoother, renewed complexion.

What are BOTOX Injections?
BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin used for numerous medical and cosmetic purposes. At Avanti Medical Center, BOTOX injections are offered as wrinkle relaxers to reduce muscle contractions of the face that are responsible for emotional expression. With these muscle contractions minimized, it gives the overlying skin the chance to recover and heal. Over time, the healing process smoothes out unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of BOTOX injections?
Cosmetic BOTOX injections provide multiple benefits, including:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smooth, youthful-looking results
Short treatment time
Little to no downtime
Fast, long-lasting results
Am I an ideal candidate for BOTOX injections?
Individuals are candidates for BOTOX injections if they:
Are in good general health
Have realistic cosmetic expectations
Have fine lines and wrinkles that can be effectively treated with BOTOX
Do not want invasive cosmetic surgery
Our team will review your personal and medical histories to determine if BOTOX injections are a safe treatment option for you.
How does the treatment process work?
BOTOX injections take just a few minutes to administer and can be completed within the comforts of one of our private treatment rooms at Avanti Medical Center. Patients generally experience a mild prick or stinging sensation once the needle is injected. After the injections are finished, the patient may leave our office and resume normal daily activities.
Is there a recovery period?
There is little to no downtime after BOTOX injections. However, patients may experience some swelling or tenderness for the first 24 hours, which will subside on its own. Patients should avoid the following for the first day or two:
Rubbing or massaging the face
Tanning or excessive sun exposure
Ingesting blood thinners or anti-inflammatory medication
Lying on your face
Participating in strenuous exercise
When can I get back to exercising after BOTOX injections?
The first 24 hours are crucial after BOTOX injections to reduce swelling and minimize unnecessary swelling or infection. Patients are generally asked to wait at least a day or two after receiving BOTOX to begin strenuous exercises that increase their heart rate over 130.
How long will my BOTOX results last?
Depending on the type of BOTOX you receive and how well you adhere to precautions, your BOTOX results may last up to several months. Talk to our team about follow-up and maintenance appointments in the coming months during your initial consultation.
