Smoothing Out Wrinkles with Botox Cosmetic
While wrinkles can make you look tired or even angry, after a Botox Cosmetic treatment with Dr. Ellen, your skin will look smoother and you will appear more refreshed.
Most often, Botox Cosmetic is used to treat:
Because non surgical injectables are a temporary but highly effective way to soften and smooth the look of moderate to severe frown lines in people from 18 to 65 years of age. With just one ten minute treatment, and just a few tiny injections, you can expect immediate results to last anywhere from 3-6 months. Botox® and other injectables are far more cost effective and far less invasive that surgical procedures.
What is Botox?
Botox cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows over time. Botox has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions including Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
Am I a candidate for Botox Cosmetic?
The good news is most adults can benefit from Botox Cosmetic treatment in Detroit. Consider Botox if you have mild to moderate wrinkles on the forehead or brow, including crow's feet. Tell Dr. Ellen if you have ever had an adverse reaction to Botox or a similar product in the past.
Is treatment with Botox Cosmetic comfortable?
Patients have been undergoing treatment with Botox Cosmetic for many years and most experience minimal discomfort. Dr. Ellen injects the solution with a small needle and you may feel some tingling, but this will quickly subside. After treatment, it is possible to experience some redness or swelling of the injection site, but this is temporary and may be diminished with the application of an ice pack. The treatment time itself is very short.
How often will I need treatment with Botox Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic treatments are temporary and you will likely need to our Detroit area practice for a touch-up application of Botox. Most patients can experience the wrinkle-smoothing benefits of Botox Cosmetic for up to six months, but may return sooner to maintain the effect.
