Botox

botox_cosmeticWhat it is:

Botox is a brand name injectable product used to temporarily reduce dynamic wrinkles or expression lines. When used for cosmetic enhancement, Botox injections are most commonly administered to diminish forehead creases, frown lines or 11's, crow's feet and neck bands, however it is also sometimes used to treat excessive sweating.

 

Who it's for:

Men and women who are 18-65 years old and want to prevent expression lines from becoming permanent or relax tense facial muscles that have them looking constantly surprised or angry are the best candidates for Botox treatment. In rare cases, patients' bodies break down Botox faster than others or are immune to the effects of the injections, however most patients respond well to Botox and find that it delays the need for more invasive wrinkle treatments in the long term.

 

How it works:

The active ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that temporarily reduces movement in muscles that cause wrinkles by blocking nerve impulses. Before your treatment, Dr. Wittpenn will identify the specific injection points he will use to ensure your Botox results are perfect, then apply ice or local anesthetic to numb the area if needed. It only takes 15-30 minutes to inject Botox, and you can go back to work and resume normal activities immediately after the procedure provided you do not touch or rub the treated areas. Botox takes affect within 3-5 days after treatment and typically lasts 3-4 months.

 

If you're considering Botox:

If you're interested in smoothing wrinkles on your face and neck or suffer from excessive sweating or migraine headaches, Botox injections may be recommended.
