Botox Injections

Why should I consider Botox?

Botox® injections improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, expression lines and other wrinkles due to facial muscle contractions.

What is Botox?

Botox is a protein substance that has been used safely since the early 1980′s by Ophthalmologists to treat a variety of eye disorders. Repeated frowning, squinting, or uncontrolled twitching of facial muscles can cause forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox injections can successfully improve the appearance of these worry lines and wrinkles.

How is the Botox treatment done?

Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of Botox is injected, into several locations on the face. The Botox blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected. Forehead wrinkles, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crows feet wrinkles around the eyes are the most commonly treated areas. Advanced Botox treatments can accentuate the lip, reduce smile lines above the lip, lift the corner of the mouth, lift the eyebrows and release bands on the neck.

Does the treatment hurt?

There is a slight stinging sensation at the time of treatment. However, the injection is performed with a very fine syringe and a minimal amount of Botox solution.

What can I expect?

The effects of Botox will be noted 3 to 7 days after the procedure and can last for up to 3 to 6 months. Repeated treatments have been shown to be safe with no reported long term side effects. During your consultation, risks, side effects and expected outcomes will be discussed.

Botox for Men

Botox Cosmetic is certainly not just for women. Women may talk about their looks more often, but men are concerned about their appearance as well.

In nature, some male species have all the luck when it comes to looks. Think about a peacock and a peahen. It’s the male who’s got that gorgeous train, not the female. And the father of the lion family is the one with the glorious mane. With humans, it doesn’t always work that way, but the fact is, guys do care about their looks.

Why shouldn’t they? A man who goes to the gym to work out and cares about his clothes and grooming is a man who not only cares about his appearance, but what it says about him personally, as well as in business.

Men are also doing something about their brow lines

A man who has pronounced lines between his brows may be perceived as angry or stressed—and he doesn’t want to look that way. That’s why it’s not surprising that men are also choosing Botox Cosmetic, a non-surgical, physician-administered treatment.

A Botox Cosmetic treatment requires little time out of the office. So, it’s possible to have the procedure done during a lunch hour and head right back to the office.
