BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the affects of facial wrinkles. Crows feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.

The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia because they are virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections may lead to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience such dramatic results. BOTOX® Cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.

Post-Operative Information

After the operation patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. BOTOX® Cosmetic is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.

Facial Fillers

As we age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Sun exposure and years of muscle movement (i.e., smiling, chewing, and squinting) also contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin. Fortunately, there are innovative cosmetic procedures to help ease this aging process and sustain one’s youth.

Facial fillers, which are also known as “dermal fillers” and “injectables,” are non surgical solutions to restoring youth. The results are instantaneous. Typically these are lunch time procedures with relatively minimal post injection signs. Patients usually have some redness which resolves in most cases by the next day. Some patients may have post injection bruising but this is usually mild and can be covered with make up. The duration of the cosmetic effect is about one year with some results lasting up to eighteen months. Dr. Halusic and his team at The Facial Surgery Center will discuss the procedure in detail with you when you come in for a consultation. Just call 877-377-3223 (FACE).
