BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most common non-invasive cosmetic treatment in the United States. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of botulinum toxin, which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe and effective way of treating aging skin and wrinkles. Common areas for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows (known as "11" lines) and crow’s feet around the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has proven to be one of the best non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation and capable of producing wonderful improvements in your appearance. Botox is also a popular procedure for men and can be accomplished by Dr. Firouz in such a way as to preserve masculinity and the "manly" features of the face for his male clients while creating the desired cosmetic change.
Popular Uses of BOTOX®
- Excessive facial wrinkles.
- Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
- Small wrinkles or “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
- A vertical “frown line” between your eyebrows.
How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily paralyzing the facial muscles beneath the skin that create the lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles, thereby relaxing them. The result is that the underlying facial muscles relax, and the skin begins to smooth out. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic will last approximately three to four months, after which time the patient may choose to repeat the procedure.
After BOTOX® Treatment
Patients generally return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure; however, following the post-procedure guidelines will dramatically reduce the length and intensity of the recovery period. Patients should avoid engaging in heavy physical exercise or laying down flat for a minimum of four hours after the injections. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for at least 24 hours.
