The #1 selling treatment of its kind.
You might be looking for BOTOX® near you in West Bloomfield, but do you know what Botox is? Essentially, Botox is what’s called a “neuromodulator.” Neuromodulators work beneath the skin to temporarily restrict micro-muscle movement in order to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as to prevent new wrinkles from forming. BOTOX® Cosmetic and Jeaveau® (or “Newtox”) are THE most trusted brands of neuromodulators on the market. In as little as a 10-minute treatment (with minimal downtime afterward, we can deliver predictable, subtle results.
What it Treats
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- Forehead Lines
- Drooping brows
How it Works
A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
If you are experiencing this damage, getting Botox near you in West Bloomfield can be a great solution!
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. Botox and Jeuveau work beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. They stop your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex, temporarily smoothing those lines.
What to Expect
Your BOTOX Cosmetic, Jeuveau or Xeomin injections will be performed in the comfort of one of our 5 locations.
The entire appointment will last about 10 to 15 minutes, with the injections themselves taking less than a few minutes.
To begin, our provider will ask you to contract your face in various ways so that he/she can mark the treatment area. The medical provider will then place the injections carefully to smooth out your dynamic wrinkles, while preserving your ability to move your face and express yourself naturally.
Afterward, you’ll still look like you — just a more refreshed, youthful version of yourself with fewer facial lines!

- WHAT IS BOTOX®, JEUVEAU®, & XEOMIN®?
Botox Cosmetic, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are injectable proteins that the FDA has approved to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Despite the different names, they share a similar mechanism of action and are used for similar purposes. At Cratus Medical Vitality Institute, we employ all three products, using their subtle differences to customize the care of each patient. Our Botox services are highly trusted by patients across West Bloomfield and all of Michigan, due to the high level of experience of our injectors.
- HOW DOES XEOMIN® WORK?
When you squint or frown, the muscles between your eyebrows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines. Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in Xeomin®– acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, Xeomin® can temporarily reduce the lines between your eyebrows.
- WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Usually, after a Botox injection, it takes about 5 to 10 days to see results. As a precautionary measure, we recommend waiting a full 14 days before you consider getting any repeat injections.
To further maintain your results, your licensed Botox injector in West Bloomfield will send you home with detailed post-care instructions!
- HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses that make muscles contract. When the muscles are relaxed, the overlying skin becomes smoother, which can provide patients with a smooth look and an overall refreshed appearance. Often, we suggest using Botox injections as a preventative measure to keep lines and wrinkles from forming in the first place! Many young adults in West Bloomfield, including men and women, choose Botox to help them maintain a youthful look well into their 40s and beyond.
- HOW MUCH BOTOX WILL I NEED?
The amount of Botox you need will depend on the number and size of the areas you’d like to have treated. During your Botox consultation at one of our greater Detroit area offices, we will assess your concerns and let you know how many units you’ll need to achieve the look you want. Usually, this amount will range from 20 to 70 units.
- HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF BOTOX LAST?
The effects of Botox usually last about three to four months. This depends on the individual patient, as well as lifestyle factors such as diet, sun exposure, and the use of effective skincare products. We will provide you with post-care instructions after your injections in West Bloomfield to help prolong the effects of Botox and maintain your results for as long as possible.
- DO BOTOX INJECTIONS HURT?
The needle used during a Botox injection is very tiny. Therefore, the discomfort is minimal. We rarely find numbing to be necessary for this treatment. We will walk you through everything to expect from a Botox injection during your brief initial consultation at our West Bloomfield offices!
- WHO WILL INJECT MY BOTOX?
In order to deliver results you love—and results we’re proud of—we only allow our most highly educated, extensively trained and certified medical staff to perform Botox injections at Cratus Medical. Physicians and PAs are the only staff that administer Botox, Jeuveau and Xeomin injections at our five Michigan locations.
