Ready to leave lines behind and give your face a fresh start? Smooth skin is just a few injections away with BOTOX and Dysport at our Ankeny dermatology clinic and spa near Des Moines, IA. In the hands of Revive’s highly trained injectors, these products can rejuvenate your look without surgery or downtime. Whether you’re looking to treat existing lines or prevent future wrinkles, BOTOX and Dysport are your secret weapons for youthful-looking skin.

If you’re considering treatment, this page is for you! Here you’ll find answers to the most commonly asked BOTOX questions we hear at Revive.

How Does BOTOX Work?

BOTOX and Dysport are injectables called neuromodulators or neurotoxins. They work by interrupting the signals from your brain telling specific muscles to contract. Less muscle movement means fewer “dynamic wrinkles”—the lines that form when you squint, frown, raise your eyebrows, and more.

While these injections do limit muscle movement, you don’t have to worry about looking “frozen” or unnatural. Skilled injectors like Dr. Stefanie Gatica and Revive’s team of highly trained providers know exactly where to place BOTOX and how much of it to inject to give you gorgeous results without overdoing it. Revive is in the top 1% of BOTOX providers nationwide, so you can trust you’re in exceptional hands.

What Does BOTOX Treat?

BOTOX is fantastic for treating wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements, such as:

  • Frown lines, or vertical “11s” between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines on the nose

BOTOX also treats gummy smiles and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). When injected into the masseter muscle in the jaw, it can also slim the jawline and reduce symptoms of TMJ (temporomandibular joint dysfunction).

Some wrinkles are better treated with injectable dermal fillers, which add volume to specific areas. Our clients often combine these treatments to complete their rejuvenated look.

How much botox will I need?

What Is It Like To Get BOTOX?

BOTOX appointments typically take less than 20 minutes. We’ll start by bringing you back to a treatment room and having a thorough discussion about your current concerns and what you’re looking for. Your injector will work with you to create your own fully customized treatment plan.

After cleansing the treatment area, your injector will use a tiny needle to inject BOTOX directly into the targeted muscles. Most people say these injections just feel like a few quick pinches. After that, you’re on your way!

What Is BOTOX Recovery Like?

One of the biggest benefits of BOTOX is that it requires little to no recovery time. You may have a little redness around your injection sites for the next few hours, but this should subside on its own.

It’s best to hold off lying down, massaging the area, working out intensely, or doing activities that may increase blood flow to your head for the next several hours. This gives the product time to settle and prevents it from spreading to any other areas.

How Long Do BOTOX Results Last?

Your results will take a few days to appear and will last up to 4 months before naturally wearing off.

How Much Does BOTOX Cost?

At our dermatology clinic and med spa in Ankeny, BOTOX is priced per unit. Your total cost will depend on the number of units injected. We will go over your costs with you during your consultation so you know exactly what to expect in terms of pricing.

What a wonderful place! Love coming here where I know the care and treatments are great and staff is well trained! Run don’t walk!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!

Always enjoy going to Revive. The atmosphere and employees always make me feel welcomed and continue to produce results that make it the best med spa/clinic I've been to.

I love how much time this staff takes to answer questions. They are kind and very knowledgeable. I absolutely love working with Maria. She shows that she cares and always helps me with a smile on her face. She is just a genuinely nice gal who I trust and I know she always does her best to help me find what I need. She is not salesy and I appreciate that. I highly recommend Maria for your skincare needs.

Relaxed atmosphere with caring and hospitable staff. Procedures virtually painless with great results.

Tawnya was able to see me regarding some moles causing me concern. She removed the moles and sent them to the lab. As soon as my results were posted, she contacted me immediately with the news that everything was ok. I will be seeing her for regular checkups.

Dr Stef was absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to help our daughter out with some skin issues. I can’t recommend this place enough!
