About BOTOX at Versailles Medical Spa
Today, forehead wrinkles and frown lines around the eyes no longer need to be an inevitable part of aging. A dynamic treatment for facial wrinkles called Botox® Cosmetic is available at Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, Connecticut. It is enabling thousands of men and women to restore a smooth and youthful appearance to their faces. Botox® Cosmetic is much different than typical skin “fillers”. Using tiny needles in a routine office procedure, Botox Cosmetic is gently injected into facial muscles, which relaxes them and actually removes wrinkles instead of simply filling them in.
When injected into the facial muscles around your eyes and brow, BOTOX Cosmetic causes them to relax within 5 to 7 days. By relaxing these muscles, you’re no longer able to tighten and contract them in a manner that creates the wrinkles associated with squinting and stressful concentration. Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the facial muscles, which prevents you from tightening the skin around your eyes and brow. As a result, your skin slowly flattens and smooths itself over.
Botox Cosmetic treatments take about 15 minutes and no anesthesia is necessary. With our conveniently located Darien, Connecticut, medical office, Botox® Cosmetic treatments can be scheduled during a lunch hour or slipped into any busy schedule.
With Botox Cosmetic, wrinkles and frown lines that you once thought would stay with you for the rest of your life, can be eliminated and replaced with a youthful vibrant look that improves your appearance and boosts your self-confidence.
What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
Botox Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary

Frequently Asked Questions about BOTOX in Darien, CT
How does Botox work?
Botox reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by years of repetitive movements) such as frown lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. It does this by blocking the signals to the muscles themselves. Because the injected muscle can no longer contract as dramatically, the wrinkles appear to soften naturally, and relax.
Is Botox safe?
Yes, when administered by a licensed medical aesthetic professional. The entire medical staff of Versailles Medical Spa has undergone extensive training with the appropriate certifications. In addition, our medical staff routinely undergoes continuing education courses on Botox, to stay abreast of the latest advancements.
Is treatment painful?
As with any cosmetic injectable treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort. However, discomfort is usually momentary, residing almost right away.
Is there downtime?
No, this is typically considered a no downtime treatment. Occasionally injection site redness or swelling may be present. In certain instances, clients may bruise following treatment, though every effort is made to prevent this.
How soon before I see my results?
Botox results can take up to 14 days to become visible.
