If you have unwanted lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead, and brow, but are not ready for cosmetic surgery, then BOTOX® Cosmetic may be what you are looking for. Dr. Goldschmidt offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to combat various signs of aging.
Wrinkles and fine lines form because of age, excessive sun exposure, and lifestyle choices; and while these lines are often small, they can significantly impact your confidence levels. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections quickly and effectively reduce fine lines and wrinkles that occur around the eyes, forehead, and brows with no surgery, downtime, or recovery period. This treatment is unique among other injectables in that BOTOX® Cosmetic targets both static and dynamic wrinkles that are often unaffected by other treatments. Allow yourself a more youthful appearance with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Candidates
Unwanted wrinkles and fine lines lead many men and women to consider BOTOX® Cosmetic. Individuals who are interested in BOTOX® Cosmetic are dissatisfied with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the upper third part of their face such as wrinkles around the eyes, across the forehead, and between the eyebrows. Patients should be in general health and have realistic expectations.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from a diluted form of botulinum toxin type A. This is a neuromuscular toxin that works by blocking the transmission of neural signals, immobilizing muscles that produce wrinkles and fine lines.
During this treatment, Dr. Goldschmidt injects a small amount of the toxin directly into the targeted area to relax the facial muscles. When the muscles are relaxed, wrinkles are smoothed out and additional wrinkles are unable to form.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a surgical or invasive procedure. There is no downtime or recovery period associated with these injections. You will be able to resume all normal activities right away. You may experience some temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness at the injection site, but these should dissipate quickly.
Smoother, more youthful skin begins to appear within a week of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Results usually last up to four months. At this point, the injections can be repeated for prolonged improvement. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most frequently used form of facial rejuvenation on the market today and can provide significant improvement of your fine lines and wrinkles.
Complications with BOTOX® Cosmetic are rare, and when they occur are typically temporary. These complications can include:
- Minor swelling and bruising in the injection area
- Mild numbness or tingling in the injection site
- Allergic reaction
