Facial Injectable Botox
The signs of aging may start to bother patients early in life. Many patients first start to notice vertical frown lines (between the brows), forehead creases, or ‘smile lines’ and ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes in the late twenties and early thirties. Gratefully, plastic surgery procedures are often unnecessary to treat these small but noticeable issues. For patients in search of a remedy that refreshes the face while smoothing lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® cosmetic, also known as botulinum toxin Type A, is often all that is needed.
For this reason, BOTOX is the most frequently requested non-surgical skin procedure in the United States and around the world. BOTOX cosmetic is delivered by injection and improves the appearance of facial wrinkles. BOTOX cosmetic simultaneously maintains the patient’s ability to make normal facial expressions. Patients look natural and like themselves after treatments, just a little better. Dr. William Silver, MD, FACS administers BOTOX cosmetic treatments to patients in search of an improved appearance.
How Lines and Wrinkles Are Formed
Everyone develops lines and wrinkles in the facial skin. Squinting, laughing, or making certain expressions creates dynamic wrinkles, or wrinkles caused by muscle contractions and movements, over time. BOTOX actually targets the cause of these lines and wrinkles and is not a filler product, such as popular hyaluronic acid fillers. Instead, BOTOX actually paralyzes the underlying facial skin muscles on a temporary basis. Since the underlying muscles cannot contract, the skin looks younger and smoother. Skin over the relaxed muscles flattens and the appearance of wrinkles and lines is diminished.
No Down Time
Busy patients want fast results, and BOTOX cosmetic delivers. This practically painless treatment does not require the patient to invest days or weeks in surgery or recovery. An office visit is all that is required. Typically, patients make a consultation appointment to determine if they are good candidates for the treatment. When the doctor gives the green-light, patients often receive BOTOX cosmetic the same day.
BOTOX is injected into facial muscles with an extremely fine needle, as close as possible to the focus lines and wrinkles of concern to the patient. Most people report no pain (some describe the sensation as “pin prick”) during or after administration of the treatment.
Depending upon the treatment area and depth of lines and wrinkles, most patients enjoy benefits of BOTOX for three to six months. At that time, the patient makes an appointment for another BOTOX treatment.
Help for Excessive Sweating
Patients suffering with excessive sweating can also take advantage of BOTOX treatments. Hyperhidrosis may affect the patient’s underarms, hands, or feet, and is a serious medical problem. Patients with these concerns should ask Dr. Silver about BOTOX treatments for excessive sweating.
