Botox®

Botox ® Botox is by far the most popular injectable in the world.  Botox has been used, on hundreds of millions of patients for the Treatment of wrinkles and muscle spasms, since 1986.  It dramatically reduces expression wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, over the forehead and frown lines, and on pronounced neck bands.  Botox helps the patient achieve a more happy, rested appearance. In addition, the regular use of Botox often prevents the formation of future wrinkles.  I have personallyused Botox on myself since 1994.  It can take 10 years off your appearance.

A topical anesthetic is applied prior to injections.  The smallest needle is used for the injections.  Some patients do not even want or need topical anesthetic.  The results will be maximum from 2 weeks to 3 months after the injections.  At 3 months the wrinkles slowly start to come back.  Treatment every 4 months is needed to maintain optimal results. Anywhere from 20 to 60 units will be used for each treatment.  I usually recommend at least 40 units over 3 areas (the full dose is 60 units) which include the forehead, frown line and crows feet.  This will soften all the lines and achieve a younger refreshed look every where and to prevent odd facial expressions or “that Botox look”.
