Botox is a neurotoxin used to stop muscle function or prevent muscle function which are producing wrinkles.
Botox was FDA approved to reduce facial wrinkles in 2002, and since then, thousands of patients have been treated safely and effectively.
Botox effects duration:
Your first botox injection will last about three to four months. That interval will increase by about a month with each succeeding injection until treatments are only needed about every five to six months
Common places where Botox is used:
For years, the only solution to stubborn facial wrinkles and lines reinforced by your own natural expression was going under surgery. Finally, there is a solution that requires no downtime. Botox injections will restore your youthful and smooth skin. These quick, non-surgical injections will dramatically smooth the deep worry lines on your forehead and the crow’s feet along the side of your eyes. Other common places where Botox is used is to raise the lateral end of the eyebrows, to reduce the transverse lines in the upper nose and the bunny lines on the sides of the nose, and to eliminate the sad look at the corners of the mouth.
Will Botox treatments be painful?
Although pain is subjective, we take every possible measure to make sure your experience is as painless as possible. We usually apply topical numbing cream as well as using ice right before the injection, which quickly and effectively numbs the area.
How much a Botox injection hurts also depends on where the Botox injection is, so there are certain areas of the face that are more sensitive than others.
When is the best time for rhinoplasty?
People seek rhinoplasty either because they want their nose to look better or because they want to breathe better and sometimes both. There is no specific age that’s best for rhinoplasty. A lot of patients get it when they are young because it’s something they’ve wanted it through their childhood years and we tend to wait until kids are 15 to 17 years of age before we allow them to undergo rhinoplasty, but we can perform it at almost any age.
What is recovery after eyelid surgery?
The recovery from eyelid surgery, either upper eyelid surgery or lower eyelid surgery, is generally a very easy recovery. The one problem with it is that most patients will get bruising around the eyes. So from a cosmetic standpoint, they will have to be aware that people who see them, their friends, their family, etc., will see some bruising. From a pain standpoint, most patients have no pain at all, and they don’t take any pain medication., their friends, their family, etc., will see some bruising.
