Despite our best efforts, stress and aging can take a toll on our appearance by causing facial wrinkles and creases. 

BOTOX® is a quick and simple way to smooth out your facial lines and reverse the cosmetic effects of aging and stress. 

Learn how BOTOX works and why patients in the Chicago, IL, area trust Dr. Nadimi to take care of their cosmetic needs. 

What Is BOTOX?

BOTOX is composed of purified botulinum toxin, a substance that prevents your muscles from receiving signals sent by nerves. While botulinum toxin sounds intimidating, it’s safe when injected by a professional in small doses. By blocking the signals to your muscles, BOTOX injections can relax the surrounding muscles and smooth out wrinkles or lines. 

At Chicago Hair Institute, we use BOTOX Cosmetic, the top botulinum toxin treatment specially made to target wrinkles and creases around the face. 

Benefits of BOTOX 

Non-Invasive Treatment

BOTOX can treat wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other cosmetic signs of aging or stress without the need for surgery or other invasive techniques  

Fast and Effective 

BOTOX starts working immediately, and many patients start to see results as soon as they leave our office after the treatment. 

FDA-Approved as Safe

BOTOX Cosmetic is FDA-approved for treating wrinkles and lines around the face. BOTOX is safe when administered by professionals like Dr. Nadimi

"You will be amazed by the results."

Are You Considering BOTOX?

Our Chicago doctors will review these factors before they inject you with botulinum toxin:

Overall Health

Before undergoing any cosmetic treatment, you should be in good health to prevent complications and minimize risks. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, you should wait to schedule your BOTOX treatment. Let our doctor know if you have any medical conditions. 


You must be at least 18 years old to receive BOTOX injections, but many patients wait until their mid-20s or early 30s before undergoing treatment.


Though BOTOX can reduce the appearance of your wrinkles, giving you more youthful-looking skin, injections cannot stop all signs of aging. If you're interested in more dramatic results, ask Dr. Nadimi about a brow lift.

Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dr. Sahar Nadimi discusses the uses, results, and prevalence of BOTOX in plastic surgery. She commonly performs injections to help patients eliminate signs of aging such as crow's feet and forehead lines. Her extensive experience and keen eye for detail allow her to inject the medicine in locations that offer the most dramatic results.

Treatment Timeline 

Most patients experience very little discomfort during the process, but we can apply ice or a numbing cream to the target area prior to the injection. 
Injections at Chicago Hair Institute typically take 15 minutes or less to complete. 
Injections at Chicago Hair Institute typically take 15 minutes or less to complete. 


After discussing your treatment goals, Dr. Nadimi will go over the best injection sites for effective results. 


Our doctor will use a thin needle to inject the botulinum toxin solution into the targeted facial muscles. 


For the first 24 hours, patients should avoid rubbing the treated area so the BOTOX doesn’t spread to other areas. Otherwise, you can return to your normal routine as soon as your treatment is complete.  
Your lines and wrinkles will start fading immediately after the treatment, and your final results can appear within 48 hours. Most patients’ results last up to four months or more, and you should schedule touch-up treatments when the results of your previous injections begin to fade.

Curious About Enhancements But Unsure About Plastic Surgery?

For patients who are seeking to address smaller cosmetic concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX and other injectables can accomplish your goals. If you're curious about how you would look with plastic surgery but are unsure if you want to commit to it yet, injectables are a great way to preview how you could look after your procedure. After a few injections, our doctors can review your plastic surgery options if you're still interested.

BOTOX and other injectables can also be combined with procedures like blepharoplasty and facelift. By combining treatments, you can achieve more dramatic results and turn the clock back on your appearance even more.

To meet our Chicago doctors, request a consultation today or contact us by phone.

Possible Side Effects 

BOTOX is safe and FDA-approved for cosmetic use but has some potential side effects like any other treatment. These side effects, like eyelid drooping, usually only last a few days and some of them may be dependent on where the BOTOX is injected.

Mild Side Effects 

  • Swelling and mild discomfort 
  • Dry or watering eyes 
  • Reddened or discolored skin 
  • Uneven smile or drooling
  • Drooping eyelids or eyebrows 

Rare Side Effects 

  • Difficulty swallowing or breathing
  • Difficulty speaking 
  • Problems with vision
  • General muscle weakness
  • Problems controlling the bladder 
Between 1989 and 2003, the FDA received only 36 reports of serious side effects from cosmetic uses of botulinum toxin. If you experience any of these rare side effects, contact your doctor or medical services immediately. 

After Your Injections 

Recovering from BOTOX takes only a few days. During this time, you should avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after your injections. Being active so soon after treatment can cause bruising and swelling as your circulation increases. Alcohol can also cause these symptoms as it thins your blood, so you should avoid drinking it for the first 24 hours, as well.

For at least the first four hours after your injections, remain upright so the botulinum toxin stays in the treatment area. Do not touch your face for the first 24 hours.

Alternatives to BOTOX 

At Chicago Hair Institute, we only offer the best treatments and cosmetics for our patients. Other products like Dysport® and Xeomin® also use botulinum toxin to treat wrinkles and creases, but we choose BOTOX Cosmetic for its superior quality and solid track record. Xeomin can only treat frown lines while Dysport dilutes its formula so the results don't last as long. BOTOX Cosmetic provides the best combination of long-lasting results and versatility out of the FDA-approved products that use botulinum toxin.
