Botox ® Cosmetic

botox

Botox ® Cosmetic is FDA approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyes.

How does it work?

Boxtox® Cosmetic is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A and when used in small measured amounts, blocks nerve impulses from reaching muscles beneath the forehead and brow, responsible for those lines and folds.

Known as Glabellar lines, frown or worry creases develop after years of normal facial expressions, sometimes giving you the appearance of being angry or upset. Once these muscles are relaxed through the Botox® injection and can no longer contract, frown lines and folds soften and are often undetectable. Your face is smoother and more relaxed, giving you a more rested and younger look.

Where is Botox used?

Botox is used to soften and smooth wrinkles and creases on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes.

Does it hurt?

Most patients tolerate the injections well because the needle is very fine. For those patients who are more sensitive to pain, we can apply a cold pack or topical anesthetic that should alleviate any discomfort or anxiety. Patients often say it feels like a mild pinprick.

How long is the recovery?

Although there isn't any downtime associated with Botox® and patients can immediately resume their daily activities, we advise that you avoid touching the area where you received the injections. Some patients may experience bruising, redness and localized pain but these side effects are not common and usually subside in a week. I recommend patients avoid taking ibuprofen (Motrin or Advil) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) which may promote bruising in some patients.

When will I see results?

You'll notice a change immediately after your injections with continued improvement over the course of a week.

How long does it last?

Botox ® typically lasts between four and six months and in order to retain the benefits, you'll need to schedule additional injections to keep your youthful and well rested appearance.

Step 2: Come for your visit

When you come in for your appointment, we begin by talking about the facial areas you'd like to improve and your personal ideal results. Then, we prescribe the combination of treatments needed to reach this goal. These treatments are then administered on the spot. There's no need to plan a separate visit or to make any special arrangements for the day you get your care. Our treatments require no down time. After our short visit, you can return to your normal, productive day!

Step 3: Return for touch-ups

One week after your initial treatment, we meet again to discuss the results. If there are any areas that require touch up, we treat those areas during this visit. Then, we discuss how to maintain your results and we make a plan for the future care of your fresh new looks!
