Facial expressions really reveal how you are feeling and what you are thinking. Smiling, frowning, and squinting are all important to effective communication, but these repetitive motions are not good for the facial skin. Over time, your skin begins to decrease its collagen production and become more lax. When this happens, you will start to see more lines and wrinkles on the face, especially around the eyes, on the forehead, and between the eyebrows. But don’t let that stop you from showing expression. BOTOX® Cosmetic injectable treatments at Ariel Ostad MD PC can help to preserve your face with natural-looking results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first-and-only FDA-approved injectable treatment of its kind to temporarily reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. The treatment is minimally invasive and does not require any pre- or post-prep or recovery time, which ultimately leads to less risk overall. It has been proven to be trusted, safe, and effective for men and women for years.
Sometimes referred to as the “lunchtime treatment,” BOTOX® Cosmetic is so quick that it can be performed on someone’s lunch break. With just 15 minutes of your time, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be injected into all of the areas that need to be treated in order to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic does not require any anesthesia, and most patients report minimal discomfort. A mild pinching or pulling sensation can be felt as the very thin needle is going to be injected into the face. Ice or a numbing cream may be used to dull the pain and ease your mind.
With BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can expect to achieve natural-looking results. Patients can undergo treatments every four months after the injectable wears off, as this is just a temporary treatment for wrinkle reduction. For first-time patients, or patients who have only received a few treatments, it may be best to start smaller and then work your way up to more treatment areas to ensure that you like the natural results of BOTOX® Cosmetic. You can always go back for more!
After each BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, your skin will appear smoother, more youthful, and natural. It is recommended that you schedule repeat appointments to stay on top of your results so that you can continue to look great and feel great!
