BOTOX® Cosmetic in Boston

BOTOX® is a substance in which Botulinum Toxin is used to treat the visual signs of aging by minimizing  wrinkles.  It is considered a safe and effective means of dealing with aging eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes.  BOTOX® has proven to be one of the best forms of non-surgical  of facial rejuvenation.

Reasons For Considering BOTOX® Treatment

  • Wrinkles on the face
  • Forehead furrows
  • “Crow’s feet” around the eyes
  • “Frown lines” around the eyebrows

Anesthesia

Local anesthetic cream.

General Procedure

A small amount of BOTOX® (typically 1-2 cc’s) is injected into the area of wrinkle. It acts by blocking impulses at nerve ending to corresponding facial muscles causing them to relax. An ice pack is then immediately applied upon completion of the BOTOX® treatment. The effects of BOTOX® treatments can last three to six months after which the procedure is repeated.

Recovery Process

Normal activity is resumed immediately following the procedure. It is recommended that patients follow postoperative instructions to optimize outcomes. In the first 24 hours patients should avoid vigorous massaging or rubbing the injected area.  Furthermore, patients should avoid intense physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours following the injections.
