Botox Injections

You keep hearing about it... Botox, botulinum. Do you want to know what the fuss about a Botox injection is all about? It's simple. You'll look years younger in minutes. This is because a Botox injection minimizes the appearances of wrinkles.

Minneapolis Botox Treatments

At our Crutchfield medi spa, we offer Botox wrinkle treatments to soften the appearance of wrinkles in your skin.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria.   Although BOTOX® Cosmetic, at very high doses, is considered a toxin, there have been no serious side effects reported from its use to treat wrinkles.  To treat wrinkles, we use a dilution 3 million times less that those that cause toxicity.  Additionally, these extremely small amounts remain localized to the injection site and do not spread throughout the body.

Before and After Botox

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

A few drops of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected with a tiny needle into the muscle that creates a wrinkle.  When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle relaxes.  As the muscle relaxes, the skin overlying the muscle smoothes and the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften and often disappear.


Does A BOTOX® Cosmetic Injection Hurt?

When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected there is an initial minor sting for a few seconds.   Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.


Where Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Be Injected?

The most common areas for the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic are frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead lines, and the crow's feet.  On occasion, some other areas may be treated as well.


Patient Testimonial:
"Over the past 6 years I've had BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in Los Angeles, New York, Scottsdale and Edina. The friendly and knowledgeable staff, the warm office setting, professionalism, and fantastic results that I got at Crutchfield Dermatology were unmatched by any other clinic that I have ever visited. I am thrilled that the treatments are done personally by Dr. Crutchfield and not one of his assistants. I also like the fact that Dr. Crutchfield trained at the Mayo Clinic and that he is a Board Certified Dermatologist. During my initial consultation, Dr. Crutchfield really took his time and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed or pressured to have the treatment, like I did at other clinics. After visiting Crutchfield Dermatology, I wouldn't trust anyone else with my face. In fact, I fly from Arizona twice per year for Dr. Crutchfield to do my BOTOX® Cosmetic and Restylane treatments!" - Pat S., Phoenix, AZ

Introduction
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the revolutionary enzyme that makes wrinkles disappear. Crutchfield Dermatology is one of the Twin Cities’ leaders in BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. When selecting a BOTOX® Cosmetic provider, price should be only one of several considerations. The effectiveness of BOTOX® Cosmetic is impacted both by the amount used and, more importantly, the proper placement of the enzyme. Many practitioners will offer low prices because they use a smaller volume of BOTOX® Cosmetic. This will give quick results, but these results will not be long lasting. At Crutchfield Dermatology, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Crutchfield - a board certified dermatologist and a graduate of the Mayo Clinic Medical School. Dr. Crutchfield practices dermatology full time in the Twin Cities and has performed thousands of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. If you have any questions after the treatment, he will be readily available for you. All of our BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are fully guaranteed. Consulations are now $75.00. Depending on the unwanted lines to be treated, a range of 5 to 35 units of BOTOX® Cosmetic are introduced to the target area(s). For your convenience, we can combine consultations and treatments at the same office visit. Take a look at the photographs of Dr. Crutchfield’s patients on this page and see how BOTOX® Cosmetic can take wrinkles and years off of your face.


What Creates A Wrinkle?
Many wrinkles are actually creases that have been worn into the skin by making the same expression thousands of times.  These "expression lines", often called frown lines or crow's feet, are due to the contraction of a muscle under the skin in that area.  We have known for years that surgically cutting that muscle will improve the wrinkle.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria.   Although BOTOX® Cosmetic, at very high doses, is considered a toxin, there have been no serious side effects reported from its use to treat wrinkles.  To treat wrinkles, we use a dilution 3 million times less that those that cause toxicity.  Additionally, these extremely small amounts remain localized to the injection site and do not spread throughout the body.

Where Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Be Injected?
The most common areas for the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic are frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead lines, and the crow's feet.  On occasion, some other areas may be treated as well.

Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Affect Other Facial Expressions or Create Numbness?
BOTOX® Cosmetic doesn't affect the nerve, so there is no numbness in the area of the injection.  Also,  the effect of the BOTOX® Cosmetic is only in the immediate area of the injection.  Therefore, the muscles related to other expressions are unaffected.

How Long Does A BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Last?
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic usually last three to five months, at which time another injection is required.  After several treatments, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic may begin to last longer, sometimes up to six to eight months.

How Safe Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used safely and successfully in ophthalmology and neurology since the 1980's,  and for wrinkle therapy since 1991.  In the amounts used for wrinkle therapy, the only possible side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection.

Is The Botox Treatment For Everyone?
There are a few considerations regarding BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.  The treatment is not inexpensive, so cost can be a factor.  Some patients will have treatments only before big events (weddings, class reunions, holiday photos, etc.)  so the cost may only be a one time consideration.  Other patients may elect to maintain a wrinkle free appearance by treating 2-3 times per year.  Patients who are pregnant, nursing, have an allergy to eggs (BOTOX® Cosmetic comes packed in an egg (albumin) protein for stability), have a known allergy to BOTOX® Cosmetic, or have certain neurological diseases should not be treated.

In this age of hectic and stressful lifestyles, it is nice to have an option to brighten ones appearance.  Just like a nice haircut, new suit, new pair of shoes, or new piece of jewelry can enhance your image, so too can a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, by taking years off of your appearance.

Patient Testimonials
(Letters from a patient who received a cosmetic treatment)

I am 45 years old and had put a lot of thought into starting botox treatment. However, I didn't want to undergo a change to my natural facial expressions and was somewhat fearful of the procedure and possible side effects. After researching botox treatment, I made an appointment to see Dr. Crutchfield. During my initial appointment, Dr. Crutchfield and his nurse were very informative and answered all of my questions. I did not feel pressured to go through with treatment for my facial lines but did feel extremely comfortable. I have been very pleased with the results. The change was subtle yet extraordinary and was exactly what I had hoped to achieve. I would recommend Dr. Crutchfield's expertise to anybody who may ask what I've done to improve the reflection I see in my mirror.

 

WONDERFUL experience!!!!!!
Review of Crutchfield Dermatology by jazzrae
The staff was wonderful and Dr. Crutchfield is just lovely! I saw him for some cosmetic work- botox and restylane for an all over syringe-based face lift. He was very courteous and very good with the needle and my pain was minimal. I've had no bruising and very little swelling and the results are AWESOME! I really think that his talent with the needle is why my recovery is such a piece of cake. I look like I aged backwards ten years! He gave me a fair quote and offered a discount if I chose to have the work done that day. I did. While having the work done he felt he underestimated how much I really needed in the way of Restylane and gave me more for free. All in all, I saved money and got amazing work for it! I'm just giddy about it! I received a gift of champagne, Godiva chocolates, and a free Javani facial. I have to say that Dr. Crutchfield is indeed the Nordstrom's of dermatology--- or maybe even the Tiffany's! I'm hooked for certain!:)

  • Pros: Awesome Results/Awesome
    Customer Service
  • Cons: A bit of a drive from Mpls but near MOA-shop on the way:)

 

I'm 45 years old and had been thinking about doing Botox for quite some time, and I just decided to go in for a consultation. I didn't feel any pressure whatsoever to go through with it, but after talking it over with the doctor and nurse I felt very comfortable and went ahead with it. I was very pleased with the outcome. It was a subtle yet not-so-subtle change. It was perfect. It was everything I was hoping for.

Dear Dr. Crutchfield,

I can not thank you enough for all of the hard work and time you devoted last week to making me look better! I really appreciate everything that you have done. You have made me feel like "25" again - (I wish)!

I look forward to the next appointment. Many, many thanks, again!

Sincerely,
Faith S.




I have 3 homes; New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles. I have had cosmetic dermatology treatments in all three areas and I specifically fly to see Dr. Crutchfield in Eagan, Minnesota because he is absolutely the best cosmetic dermatologist I have ever encountered. He is more than a physician; he is an artist who constantly strives for perfection in his craft. I have sent several friends, including my sister, to see him and, to a person, they have all been extremely satisfied.

Thanks again!

Dr. Crutchfield,
I would like to convey my sincere thanks for the care I received at your clinic in my first visits. You have created an environment that is "creative" and extends beyond the normal standard of service. Most importantly you are willing to extend yourself, as well.
