Many people wish they could reduce the appearance of unsightly frown lines, particularly between the brows. Yet, they are not ready for a full brow lift. For these patients, BOTOX® Cosmetic by Allergan can be a great alternative.
BOTOX is a purified form of the protein, Botulinum Toxin, which has been used to treat muscle spasms for many years. Cosmetically, BOTOX injections relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, smoothing the skin in the process. It is now the most popular injectable, non-surgical cosmetic treatment today.
BOTOX is effective on the following types of wrinkles:
For wrinkles in other areas, dermal fillers such as Restylane and Collagen may be the better choice. Some people combine a BOTOX treatment with a dermal filler treatment. If you have substantial facial wrinkles, a facelift, mini facelift, neck lift, brow lift, upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty), or lower eyelid lift may be necessary to accomplish your desired outcome.
BOTOX is becoming increasingly popular with men as well because the results are subtle and natural-looking.
BOTOX injections are made with a very small, fine needle. Our patients report that it is virtually painless, so no anesthesia is required. The treatment takes a matter of minutes.
There is no down time at all required after BOTOX. You can go back to work and wear makeup immediately. The results will become gradually better over a period of two weeks, and the effects can last up to four months.
At your consultation, Dr. Robinson will talk with you about what you would like to accomplish with BOTOX. You will also see BOTOX before and after photos of others who have had the procedure. Dr. Robinson will then take pictures of you to serve as your “before pictures”. After about two weeks, he will take “after pictures” and give you both sets of photos. It can be exciting to compare the differences. Of course, your photos will not be shared with anyone else unless you consent.
