BOTOX™ Cosmetic for Wrinkle Treatment
Chances are that you’ve heard about the benefits of BOTOX™ Cosmetic. With more than 3 million treatments administered last year alone, BOTOX Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Clearly, people all around you are experiencing the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic, and perhaps you are wondering if this wrinkle treatment is right for you.
One of the concerns Dr. Bogdan hears from women interested in BOTOX in Dallas and Fort Worth is the fear that the face will appear “frozen” or stiff after treatment. When performed by a certified injector, natural and beautiful results can be achieved. No one should be able to tell that you have had BOTOX, but people will notice that you look rested and refreshed.
When facial muscles contract, the skin wrinkles. As we age, these wrinkles become deeper and more prominent. BOTOX Cosmetic reduces or even eliminates wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles that contract to produce small lines on the face. BOTOX Cosmetic consists of a purified form of the botulinum toxin, which is safe and effective in very small doses when injected around small muscles.
Treatment will be individualized, but usually involves a small number of injections in the regions to be addressed. BOTOX is a great option for men and women who are beginning to show signs of aging, but are not ready for cosmetic surgery.
Injection of BOTOX Cosmetic usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes. First, the skin is cleaned with alcohol, and then a topical anesthetic is applied. Tiny needles are used, so there is very little discomfort, swelling, or redness. Most Dallas-Fort Worth BOTOX patients find that they are able to return to work or other normal activities immediately after their injections.
It takes some time for the effects of BOTOX Cosmetic to emerge, but most people see results in 5 to 7 days. Effects typically last 3 to 4 months, though the wrinkle reduction effect may last longer, especially if you maintain regular treatments. We schedule patients on specific days to allow timely use of each reconstituted vial of BOTOX. Consultations may be scheduled alone or in conjunction with another treatment, such as Restylane injections or face lift.
