Botox injections are a quick and easy non-surgical procedure to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin injected directly into the facial muscles leaving the patient with a smoother more refreshed appearance.
Relatively painless, this procedure uses the tiniest needle possible for injections. Cosmetic injections require very little procedure time and patients can return to normal activities soon after.
Botox is effective in treating:
- Deep wrinkles in the forehead
- Forehead lines and Furrows
- Frown Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Mid brows (11’s)
- Sagging mouth corners
- Neck banding
How long does the effects of Botox last?
The effects of Botox injections are estimated to last three to four months, however, this varies with each patient.
Will I see the results immediately post injections?
No, you will begin to see the results of your Botox injections within a few days of your treatment, however, it can take up to two weeks to see complete results. Occasionally, patients will require touch-up injections approximately two weeks after injections to ensure you are getting the best results.
Is Botox a good alternative to surgery?
Because the effects of Botox are not permanent, it is not considered an alternative to surgery, however, Botox injections can prolong the need for surgery. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Parry will develop the best cosmetic plan to meet your aesthetic goals.
