What is a BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment?
More and more patients are becoming aware of the numerous benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic for skin rejuvenation. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that can effectively smooth out wrinkles and create a more vibrant and youthful appearance. It is an injectable dermal filler made from botulinum toxin Type A that stops the ability of the muscle to contract once it is introduced into the skin. This unique property allows cosmetic surgeons to target specific facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and prevent any further contraction.
BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively smoothens the horizontal furrows in the forehead. It can also help treat the deep vertical creases found between the eyes and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic is also a good treatment option for bunny lines or the lines on the side of the nose, for pursed lips, and for vertical cords in the patient’s neck.

What is a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment like for patients?
The initial consultation with our patients will include a run-down of their medical history to determine if they are good candidates for a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment. Expectations will also be set by our patients to help us know what they are hoping to achieve and if a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is best to get these results.
Typically, a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment in our office requires no anesthesia. The injection will cause very minor discomfort, but patients can always request for topical anesthesia to be used to make the procedure more comfortable. Small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic will be introduced to the skin using a thin needle, and each treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
Patients can resume work and their day to day activities immediately after the treatment. Patients can start seeing the appearance of their wrinkles soften in 3-5 days, but the full effect can be appreciated two weeks after the procedure.
