How Do I know if Botox Cosmetic is Right for Me?

If you are between the ages of 18 and 65, you may be a candidate for Botox Cosmetic. According to a survey by the America Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Botox Cosmetic is one of the least-costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of moderate to severe lines, you may find Botox Cosmetic to a great way to invest in yourself.

What Are the Common Side Effects?

The most common side effects following injection of Botox Cosmetic are related to the injections, and they include swelling, redness, bleeding and bruising. Less likely side effects include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.

What causes wrinkles between the brows, around the eyes and on the forehead?

The lines that appear between your brows, around your eyes, and on your forehead actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When the muscles contract in these areas and the skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning, squinting or raising your brows can result in those moderate to severe lines.

How Soon Will I See a Difference? What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area treated may continue to improve for up to a week. By day 30 approximately 90% of patients judge the severity of the frown lines between their brows as much better.

How Long Will Results Last?

Visible results can last 3-4 months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment.

What is the Treatment Like?

Botox Cosmetic treatment is quick and minimally invasive. We will meet with you and discuss your treatment goals and determine exactly where to administer the injections to achieve the best result. Discomfort is minimal and brief-most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. You may resume normal activity immediately.​​

What Should I Do to Prepare Prior to a Treatment?

You should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen or naprosyn) St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
