At Therapy World Medical Spa in Lakewood, CO, we offer treatment with Botox, the popular cosmetic injectable that has cosmetic and medical uses. Aside from being an effective wrinkle removal and wrinkle reduction treatment that smoothes wrinkles and fine lines, Botox can also resolve medical conditions. It can provide migraine relief, alleviate TMJ pain and resolve excessive sweating, known as hyperhidrosis.
This anti-aging injectable Botox Treatment can be used as a medical and cosmetic treatment. Not only can it smooth wrinkles on the upper half of the face, but it can also be used to treat some medical conditions. It is a neuromodulator, and its active ingredient is a neurotoxin, a highly purified protein called botulinum toxin A that works on the muscular level to relax muscles to combat the signs of aging and alleviate pain and discomfort.
Once injected into a muscle, the injectable’s active ingredient blocks communication between nerve signals and the muscles so that they no longer contract. When the muscles remain relaxed, wrinkles and fine lines disappear, providing excellent wrinkle reduction. Aside from relaxing the muscles to promote anti-aging benefits, Botox also alleviates pain and discomfort, including providing migraine relief, alleviating TMJ pain, and resolving hyperhidrosis.
Botox Cosmetic Uses: Treating Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles that appear on the upper half of the face, including the forehead, between the brows, and at the outer corners of the eyes, typically form from a combination of thinning skin and repetitive muscle movements over time.
As you age, collagen and elastin loss and decreased hyaluronic acid content in the skin contribute to weaker skin, which begins to have less tolerance for expressions. Lines form when the skin can’t bounce back as easily, but Botox injections can smooth these wrinkles and fine lines to restore youthful-looking skin.
It’s a versatile cosmetic treatment that is FDA-approved to effectively treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Wrinkle Reduction And Wrinkle Removal
This injectable is both prescriptive and preventative. Botox treats existing wrinkles and fine lines and is, therefore, a wrinkle removal treatment. It is also a form of wrinkle reduction as it relaxes the muscles to soften the expressions, which helps prevent the formation of new or deeper lines.
Aside from its well-known role as an anti-aging treatment, Botox also has some medical uses. When injected into specific muscles, it can treat and alleviate pain and discomfort associated with specific muscular-related conditions. It can also resolve hyperhidrosis, a condition in which patients chronically and excessively sweat, typically from the underarms. It’s an effective way to experience migraine relief and alleviate TMJ pain.
Patients who experience frequent migraines often try different prescription medications to relieve their pain. Migraine pain can be debilitating, and many patients have found Botox successful, as injections into specific muscles in the head can help alleviate pain. If you’re suffering from migraine pain and want migraine relief, injections with this injectable may be the treatment option that successfully reduces or eliminates migraines so that you can enjoy an improved quality of life.
TMJ treatment with Botox targets tense muscles in and around the jaw contributing to TMJ pain. Injecting this neuromodulator into the muscles responsible for tension and pain causes the muscles to relax, which alleviates pain and discomfort. If you’ve tried different treatment options to resolve TMJ pain, using this cosmetic injectable may be what you need to finally experience true and lasting relief.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition defined by excessive sweating. This profuse sweating can come from the armpits, the hands, or the feet. It most commonly affects patients’ underarm area; even strong antiperspirants cannot successfully resolve this condition. However, Botox has proven to be an effective solution for hyperhidrosis, and injections into some specific areas of the armpit will block sweat glands and, in doing so, eliminate excessive sweating. This is good news for those whose confidence and self-image have been affected by this condition.
How It Works
Regardless of whether you want to address wrinkles and lines on the upper half of your face or use Botox treatment to resolve medical conditions, the treatment process is virtually the same. It begins with a consultation during which we will evaluate your desired treatment areas, learn more about your medical background, and confirm that this cosmetic injectable is a safe treatment option for you.
What To Expect From Your Treatment
When you arrive for your scheduled treatment, we will ensure that the area is clean and dry and, if necessary, apply a topical numbing solution. Most patients describe the treatment as tolerable and virtually painless, but you may prefer a topical numbing, and if so, we can accommodate your preferences.
Depending on what area you choose to treat, whether you want to use Botox for cosmetic purposes, medical purposes, or both, we will administer a strategic and precise number of injections into the muscles in the treatment area with the necessary number of units to help you reach your goals. The treatment takes less than 20 minutes to complete, and you can resume your normal daily activities once it is over.
Relax Your Muscles and Reach Your Medical or Cosmetic Goals
This treatment option can help different patients with unique needs and concerns reach their goals. If you’re interested in wrinkle removal, wrinkle reduction, or want to treat other medical conditions, we can give you more information and design a treatment plan for you.

Acupuncture is a healing treatment that dates back thousands of years. During the treatment, tiny, hair-thin needles are inserted into different points on the body to address unique concerns.
This treatment is a form of Chinese medicine that can help address muscular pain, acute pain, chronic pain, headaches, stress, medical conditions, fertility, and even aging issues. The needles used during treatment restore balance to the body, relax muscles, and reduce tension.
Cosmetic acupuncture focuses on facial cosmetic concerns. It can increase collagen and elastin production, reverse some signs of aging, increase blood flow and improve facial muscle tone. It can also help brighten the complexion, shrink pores, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
During the treatment, your acupuncturist will insert hair-thin needles into some specific points on the face. These needles will increase circulation to promote a healthy glow, stimulate collagen and elastin production to improve skin elasticity and strength, improve muscle tone to restore a youthful appearance, and improve skin health.
Customizing Your Treatment Plan
Since acupuncture is a versatile treatment, we require an initial consultation before beginning a session. We will ask you some questions about your medical history, current concerns, and lifestyle. We will create a treatment plan that’s right for you. The treatment itself is painless, and you’ll barely feel the needles.
Experienced acupuncturists know how and where to insert these tiny needles without causing discomfort. Once inserted, the needles remain in the designated points for anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes based on the acupuncturist’s recommendation. The treatment is relaxing and allows you to decompress from daily life’s stresses.
A Treatment Without Downtime
Once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities. There aren’t any side effects or downtime, and you will feel more relaxed immediately following your treatment. Depending on what you want to address, you may notice some initial results, but the best results tend to appear after following a specific treatment plan based on your unique needs.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are looking for a natural and effective treatment that can help address chronic health conditions, help you de-stress, improve your skin, and which doesn’t result in any negative reactions but will help improve your health on different levels, you may be the perfect candidate for acupuncture.
If your specific health or skin conditions haven’t responded to traditional treatments, acupuncture may be the missing link in your search for a solution for different health and wellness-related concerns.
