Restore your youthful glow with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Wrinkles, lines, and other signs of aging in the face can make you look years older than you feel. If you’re looking to avoid a major surgical procedure but over-the-counter creams just aren’t working for you, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an effective solution. The expertise of our team at Sand Institute will reduce the signs of aging and rejuvenate your face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from a sterile, purified form of botulinum toxin A. It works by blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that activates muscle movement. In blocking the release of acetylcholine, BOTOX® Cosmetic keeps the injected muscles from moving, preventing lines and wrinkles from appearing.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are done in our office and take approximately 10 minutes, though this can vary slightly depending on your desired treatment area.
It is typical to experience bruising at the injection site, but this can easily be concealed with makeup. You will notice your wrinkles gradually reducing over the next few days. Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic do not last forever, and for optimum results, treatment should be repeated every three to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections require skill and expertise in order to be done correctly. Dr. Sand and her team understand the specific dosage requirements and delicate injection techniques in addition to the knowledge of complex face and neck muscle anatomy necessary to correctly administer BOTOX® Cosmetic. Unskilled practitioners can incorrectly dose or inject into the wrong muscle group, causing long-lasting damage. By ensuring that your practitioner is experienced, you can be sure of optimal results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be used to correct multiple facial imperfections on both the upper and lower face. These include:
Side effects after BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are rare but can include muscle weakness, bleeding at the injection site, redness, and swelling. Dr. Sand will review possible side effects after your procedure and discuss when you should contact the office.
