As we age it is inevitable that we will all have wrinkles, especially on the face. Most notably are the wrinkles on the forehead area and upper face, which often occur even at an earlier age, especially if we tend to wrinkle our forehead when angry or surprised. These wrinkles can be reduced or dramatically improved temporarily through a treatment that Dr. Stephen Delia provides known as BOTOX or BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Treatment using Botox® Cosmetic is a simple non-surgical procedure. The treatment consists of several tiny injections (using a super-fine needle) into the muscles that cause frown lines – those horizontal forehead lines and vertical lines between the eyes – and smile lines (or crow’s feet).
BOTOX® Cosmetic can dramatically improve the appearance of these and other fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Dr. Delia has found with many patients the visible results may last up to four months.
The procedure is typically a quick nonsurgical treatment with minimal discomfort and no down time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is perhaps the most widely known injection-based wrinkle solution on the market today.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is an in-office treatment and requires no anesthesia and typically takes less than an hour, depending on the number of areas treated. The procedure begins with a fine needle that injects BOTOX® solution, into the targeted area. The medication blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing the activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form.
With almost no recovery time necessary, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections may show results in 3-4 days. Once the muscle relaxes and the skin softens, you will have a smoother and more youthful appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised but without all the wrinkles and creases. If you do not continue treatments, the frown lines between your brows and around your eyes will gradually return.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic right for me?
Dr. Delia has found that this treatment is very popular for many of his patients. Having a BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure is one way that you can invest in your appearance. It is approved by the FDA as a temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines in people ages 18 to 65.
