What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Physicians have utilized Botox® Cosmetic for years as a cosmetic treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging.

How does Botox® work?

The contractions and movements of the facial muscles are controlled by signals from the brain. Botox® simply prevents the muscle from responding to these messages. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin remains unwrinkled and smooth.

 

What is treatment like?

With a very fine needle, Botox® is injected into the specific muscle that is contracting and causing the lines and wrinkles on the face. Treatment is effective, safe, and takes approximately 10 minutes. The pain is a minimal "pin prick" and no anesthetic is required.

 

How long does a Botox® treatment last?

The effects usually last 3 to 4 months, and fade away gradually. Following several treatments, the results may last 4 to 8 months or longer. Botox® offers extended relief over the course of long-term treatment.

 

Are there any possible side effects?

Side effects of Botox® , if any, are usually mild and temporary. Botulinum toxins contain proteins, which in some circumstances may be naturally safeguarded against by the body's ability to produce antibodies. If antibodies are formed, the therapy will generate a lesser response. Temporary bruising is sometimes experienced, though this symptom resolves itself within a few days. In rare cases, there can be a slight drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression. If this should happen, return to your physician.

 

What type of results will I see?

Typically, the effect of Botox® is visible within 3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 10 to 14 days. Once the muscle becomes dormant and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions about Botox

Cosmetic Fillers

(Restylane®, Perlane® and Juvéderm™)

Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body's collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows.

 

How does Restylane, Juvederm, and Belotero work?

 

Restylane®, Juvéderm™ and Belotero® are safe and natural cosmetic dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body.  They restore skin volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth.  They maintains their shape using the body's own moisture.  As hyaluronic acid gradually degrades, each molecule binds to more water and over time, the same volume can be maintained with less hyaluronic acid.  This ability of hyaluronic acid to bind to water is what helps provide lasting results.

How does Radiesse®  work?

Radiesse cosmetic filler is an FDA-approved, next-generation filler made of calcium-based microspheres suspended in a water-based gel.  Radiesse cosmetic filler is injected into the skin through a simple and minimally invasive procedure giving you immediate, visible improvement of folds and wrinkles, and providing long-lasting and beautiful results.

Radiesse works by replenishing the lost volume and restoring your own collagen, leaving you with flawless, natural results. As part of the aging process, your natural collagen break down, diminishing facial volume and elasticity, which causes fine lines and wrinkles. Upon injection, Radiesse immediately provides volume and lift to your skin, diminishing the signs of aging.

 

How does Sculptra Aesthetic® work?

Sculptra is a very unique injectable material, normally used to fill large areas. Sculptra is made from a biocompatible synthetic substance called poly-L-lactic acid, and does not require allergy testing before use.

 

Rather than actually filling the area, Sculptra stimulates your body to produce collagen. The skin thickens and softens in the area injected, giving both increased volume and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles. This creates a natural and long lasting cosmetic improvement. The process is gradual. Immediately after the injections the area may look full, but this fullness is mostly due to the water component of Sculptra and will reduce over the next week. During the following three weeks, the area injected slowly builds up collagen and gains volume.

 

After about four weeks you will require a follow-up session to build up further collagen and complete the process. One to two follow-up sessions, spaced about one month apart are usually required to complete the process.  The effects are long-lasting and were shown in a clinical study to last for up to 2 years after the first treatment session.

 

What are the treatments like?

Cosmetic fillers are injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles, or folds. It is also injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. A skin test is not necessary prior to treatment, so treatment can be performed at any time. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a topical cream or anesthetic block. Treatment results are immediately evident.
