Who Should Consider BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Patients between the ages of 18 and 65 who are dissatisfied with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are typically good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic. This injectable treatment can address these signs of aging in the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. To qualify for BOTOX® Cosmetic, it is important that you are in good health and are not pregnant or nursing. If you have had an allergic reaction to other injectable treatments, such as Dysport®, Myobloc®, or Xeomin®, you should ask your doctor about an alternative treatment.
In addition to the quick procedure and instant recovery, you will also notice immediate improvements in your appearance. By reducing lines and wrinkles, your skin will appear smoother and firmer following treatment.
What to Expect During Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been described as a “lunchtime” procedure because the entire treatment can be performed in less than 30 minutes. Before your appointment, your doctor will discuss your cosmetic goals with you and review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate. When you come in for your BOTOX® procedure, your doctor will clean the treatment area and administer the injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing the nerves and muscles in the face that cause lines and wrinkles.
The procedure is relatively painless, and you can return to work or other activities immediately after the treatment is complete. While you may see immediate improvements in the appearance of your lines and wrinkles, it may take a few days for the effect to become more apparent. Patients typically enjoy smooth and radiant skin for four to six months with BOTOX® Cosmetic. We recommend that patients schedule additional treatments to maintain their bright and vibrant new look.
Benefits & Risks of BOTOX® Cosmetic
Drs. Gordon Wong and Wildon Wong place a strong emphasis on patient education. Before undergoing any treatment at our office, they will ensure that you understand all potential risks and side effects so you can make an informed decision about your treatment.
You may experience some pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site, in addition to minor bruising. These side effects usually dissipate within a day or so. In rare cases, patients may experience an allergic reaction to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Drs. Gordon Wong and Wildon Wong will prepare you with everything you need to know to make appropriate choices following your treatment.
