Botox is an FDA approved injectable cosmetic treatment that has seen to have long lasting results. Botox works to minimize the development and growth of deep and fine lines on the forehead and around the outer perimeter of the eyes on the sides which we call crow’s feet. Botox can be used in between the eyebrows as well. Dr. Jimmy Firouz routinely administers Botox injections for his patients. Botox has also been used on patients for excessive sweating in the armpits.
First, he analyzes the face and draws a mark on the injection sites. By asking you to smile, lift your eyebrows and make different facial expressions, he is able to determine where the Botox should be injected for visible results. He recommends the next treatment be administered typically within 3 months to maintain the cosmetic results. Of course, patients can wait longer than that but additional lines and wrinkles may form in that time and require further care and attention.
This treatment is non-invasive and does not require surgery. There is no downtime or recovery needed. However, Dr. Firouz advises his patients to not do physical exercise for a brief 24 hour period afterwards.
