It’s now easier than ever to refresh your look when early signs of aging start to appear. Initially, you may notice vertical lines between your eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, or even “crow’s feet” extending from the corners of your eyes. To get smoother, younger-appearing skin, many choose Botox® Cosmetic as a simple, easy, and popular non-surgical alternative for facial rejuvenation.
With quick, simple injections, Dr. Ravi Somayazula will improve facial wrinkles while preserving natural facial expressions that keep you looking like you. Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein used to temporarily relax and soften specific facial muscles whose uncontrolled contractions contribute to wrinkles. It is commonly used to treat both men and women who have wrinkles that are dramatized by facial animation and emotional expression. These targeted wrinkles begin to fade away within a few days of treatment. Botox is not a dermal filler like Juvéderm® or Juvéderm VOLUMA®.Areas of treatment:
- Between eyebrows (Glabella)
- Crow's feet (wrinkles on the outer side of the eyes)
- Nose (bunny lines)
- Perioral (vertical lip wrinkles around mouth)
- Neck bands (Platysma)
- Corners of mouth
- Armpits for excess sweating (hyperhidrosis)
- Hands for excess sweating
- How long does a Botox treatment take?
Each session typically lasts 15-30 minutes. Many patients choose to have a treatment done during their lunch hour.
- How does Botox work?
A very fine needle is used to carefully inject Botox into specific facial muscles located close to the targeted wrinkles to temporarily reduce muscle contractions.
- Is Botox painful?
The injections are usually described as a pinprick or bug bite sensation with minimal pain. Some patients may experience headache, temporary redness or swelling shortly after treatment, but these quickly resolve.
- Can I return to work after a Botox treatment?
Most return to work and normal daily activities immediately following their treatment.
- Is Botox only for women?
No! Men are regularly using Botox to continue looking and feeling young.
- Who is an ideal candidate for Botox?
Both men and women of any age can benefit from Botox. Ideally, people who are trying to prevent wrinkle formation and those with early signs of lines and wrinkles will benefit the most.
- When can I expect to see the results of my Botox treatment?
Results typically start to be seen within the first 72 hours. The final results generally take about one week to become visible.
- How long will the results last?
Generally, treatments last three to four months, but actual results vary between individuals and by the areas being treated.
- Can I combine Botox with other treatments?
- Can Botox help with my underarm sweating?
Yes, Botox® Cosmetic is now approved to treat excessive perspiration by injecting it directly under the arms. Axillary hyperhidrosis (underarm sweating) is a medical condition caused by hyperactive sweat glands. We also recommend miraDry® as another option for underarm sweating and odor.
