Botox Seminar

A Botox mini-seminar was just completed several days ago at Spascape Dayspa in Scituate. The anti-aging effects of Botox were demonstrated on several patients. The injections were extremely well-tolerated and any discomfort was thought to be minimal in all patients.

With Vancouver and the Olympics on everyone’s mind right now, it is interesting to note that it was the Drs. Carruther, who still practice in Vancouver, that played a large part developing the cosmetic use of Botox. This cosmetic treatment continues to be very popular for men and women, helping to lessen wrinkles and soften features. Although the effects are not permanent, this nonsurgical treatment is a safe and effective anti-aging cosmetic treatment with almost no downtime. Botox is an extensively studied medication proven to be safe, and though originally approved as effective for use in the frown-line area, Botox is now used “off-label” and is appropriate for other facial areas as well such as the forehead, “smile lines”, the crow’s feet area around the eyes, and on wrinkles in the mid and lower face.

The use of Botox and wrinkle fillers continue to be among the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures done today. As always, insist on an appropriately-trained medical professionals experienced in these treatments to administer them.
