Frowning, squinting, and laughing—we’ve all been there, and our faces tend to highlight that fact. If you have stubborn wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the answer for you. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the name that refers to Botulinum toxin type A.
Why Choose BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic will smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
The BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment temporarily removes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by targeting the muscles that cause your skin to fold and wrinkle. Thus, it works underneath your skin.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
Your dermatologist at Aesthetics & Dermatology Center may numb the area that will be treated. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections typically take about 10 minutes. However, this varies depending on the number of injections and locations that are being treated.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment generally lasts for about 4 months. However, each patient is unique and actual results may vary.
Who Is a Candidate?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, while considered safe, is only for adults. You will meet with one of our board-certified dermatologists at Aesthetic & Dermatology Center to discuss treatment goals and long-term health goals. After your consultation, you and your dermatologist will determine whether or not BOTOX® Cosmetic is an appropriate treatment for you.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic Safe?
Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from a toxin, it is, on the whole, deemed safe. Dr. Green at Aesthetic & Dermatology Center is considered one of the leading experts in Botox and is a member of the Allergan Brilliant Distinctions program, which only includes highly skilled and experienced physician injectors and can offer you discounts on your treatment.
