Fewer Wrinkles with No Downtime- Botox in Farmington or Hartford, CT

Every time you squint, smile, or scowl, your facial muscles contract. These contractions pull and fold the skin, and over time, wrinkles develop. For creases, lines, and furrows caused by repeated muscle contractions, we provide Botox in Farmington. This prescription, injectable cosmetic treatment is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments at our practice and nationwide; in the U.S., more than seven million Botox procedures are performed annually.

Visit us at Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery to learn more about Botox Cosmetic. At our practice, all injectable treatments are performed exclusively by our facial plastic surgeons, never nurses or other staff.

After years of dealing with congestion I finally made an appointment with Dr. Seeley in May. He was kind, friendly and knowledgeable from the minute I met him. In September Dr. Seeley and his team preformed the balloon sinuplasty procedure on me, which has been successful! Even though I struggled a bit with the procedure, they were so gentle and kind throughout. Follow ups have been great and quick and the whole team is friendly and nice. I actually enjoy coming in to my appointments! Thank you Dr. Seeley and team!!

My experience going to see Dr. Brook Seeley and getting a procedure was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had! From his staff at the desk, to Kim the coordinator, all the way up to Dr. Seelwy himself, I had a great experience even though I was so nervous and not knowing what to expect. He was so beyond professional, kind, friendly, and took all the time in the world to explain everything step by step, answering each and every one of my questions, and not pushing me to get the procedure or any of that fluff that other doctors do. It was an amazing experience. Thank you Dr. Seeley.

What Is Botox and How Does it Work?

Botox is FDA-approved to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead creases. It received its first FDA approval for cosmetic use in 2002 and has impressed both doctors and patients ever since. It provides effective results and has an excellent safety profile.

Botox is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that reduces the muscle activity that causes wrinkling. A small amount of Botox is injected into the skin, near targeted muscle areas. It works by interfering with communication between nerves and muscles. Since these muscle movements can lead to wrinkling, Botox weakens the movements, and in turn, prevents and reverses some wrinkling.

>When performed by a skilled injector, like Dr. Seeley, Botox results are very natural looking. Our patients significantly reduce facial wrinkling while maintaining the ability to make natural facial expressions. Friends and family will notice that you look more vibrant than ever, but no one will realize that Botox is your beauty secret. Botox provides subtle rejuvenation. You’ll still look like you but without those pesky facial lines.

What to Expect from a Botox Treatment in Farmington and Hartford

At Connecticut Facial Plastic Surgery, all Botox treatments are performed by our facial plastic surgeons. Each has received specialized Botox training and has a deep understanding of facial anatomy.

Before your injections, our surgeon will meet with you to share information and insights about the treatment. During this short consultation, they’ll make a note of your unique facial expressions and muscle positions to determine the proper locations for each Botox injection. We’ll talk about the risks and benefits of Botox and will let you know if we recommend this treatment. If Botox isn’t right for you, we’ll help you find the treatment that is.

Before the procedure, we’ll clean the treatment area with an antiseptic to prepare for injection. The injections themselves take about 10 minutes. You’ll receive multiple small injections using a very fine needle, the smallest available. We use a topical numbing cream to ensure a comfortable injection experience. Most patients tolerate the procedure very well, but if you’re concerned, let us know.

After Botox, patients return to regular activities immediately, with minimal activity restrictions. For the first day, we ask patients to avoid strenuous activities like cardio exercise and resistance training like weight lifting. You’ll also want to avoid rubbing the injection sites for the first four hours. Some medications can increase bruising and should be avoided temporarily. After a day, you can resume all regular activities.

Botox results start to appear in about one week for most patients. Lines continue to improve and reach maximum effect two to three weeks after treatment. The effects of Botox can last for up to four months. These timelines do vary, depending on how your body processes the treatment. Botox results can be maintained with quarterly injections.

Is Botox an Alternative to Facelift Surgery?

Botox does an excellent job smoothing dynamic wrinkles, the type of wrinkles caused by muscle contractions. It doesn’t lift sagging tissue or remove excess skin, however, which is the goal of a facelift. Additionally, Botox only works on active wrinkles, like crow’s feet, glabellar lines (lines between the brows), and forehead creases.

Patients with sagging or excess skin may want to consider a facelift. Botox is often used to complement facelift surgery and maximize results.

We love Botox, but before you get treatment, it is essential to understand what the procedure can and can’t do for you. We’ll talk about this in detail before you receive your injections. Clear communication is key to ensuring that our patients love their results. We don’t gloss over information or oversell our treatments. We want you to know what you’re getting before a Botox treatment.

We are proud to be a top provider of Botox in the Hartford area of Connecticut. Call us at 860-676-2473 to schedule your treatment at our Avon or Farmington locations.


You may be an ideal candidate if you want to reduce dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. You should also be in good health and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the treatment. Contact our office for a consultation to determine if Botox is the best treatment option for you.

The treatment typically takes about 10 minutes to administer. However, this may vary depending on the number of injection sites and individual circumstances.

Some of the guidelines we share with our patients for Botox aftercare include: avoiding vigorous exercise, no alcohol consumption, and no rubbing or massaging the treated areas for at least 24 hours. Additionally, staying hydrated and using sunscreen can help optimize results and minimize potential side effects.

The cost of the procedure can vary depending on factors such as the number of treatment areas and the practitioner’s fees.

It’s generally not recommended to undergo the treatment while pregnant or breastfeeding due to potential risks.

Patients typically maintain their results with quarterly treatments, though the frequency may vary based on individual needs and preferences.

Yes, the risks and side effects of the treatment may include temporary bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection site. In rare cases, there can be complications like drooping eyelids or eyebrows, asymmetry, or allergic reactions. It’s crucial to have the procedure performed by a skilled practitioner to minimize risks.

Both neurotoxin-based injectables are used to reduce wrinkles, but they have differences in formulation, diffusion, and onset of action. Dysport tends to diffuse more widely, making it suitable for larger treatment areas, while Botox may be preferred for precision treatments for specific areas of the face. The choice of Dysport vs Botox depends on your desired results, preferences and your chosen provider.
