Botox is a revolutionary approach to treating facial wrinkles. Common areas treated are crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines. These are dynamic wrinkle lines (in other words wrinkles that develop from muscle movement) and all are treatable with this procedure.
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history to make sure botox is safe for you. In addition, we will discuss botox with you, including the risks and benefits of treatment. All issues and concerns will be discussed. We will then discuss with you areas you may be interested in having treated.
We take digital photographs of all areas to be treated in order to determine the amount of improvement after treatment.
The Botox Procedure
Botox injections are generally performed without anesthesia as most patients do not find it painful. If you would like numbing cream applied, anticipate coming to the office early for the procedure. A small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent - they last on average 3-5 months. Research has suggested, that over time regular injections may lead to a longer effect.
