Botox is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin which, when used properly under trained medical care, can be used to temporarily reduce small to medium facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Mirabile amd Dr. Hsu are renowned Philadelphia / Montgomery County plastic surgeons utilize Botox in their facial rejuvenation practice to eliminate the frown and smile lines that develop with age. The toxin in Botox temporarily blocks nerve impulses that leave one’s face looking younger and more rested.
Botox weakens the muscles that produce the deep lines on the forehead and around the eyes. The toxin in Botox temporarily blocks nerve impulses that leave one’s face looking younger and more rested. Botox is the most effective means we have of eliminating forehead wrinkles and wrinkles around the eyes.
How do the injections work?
Botox is used in areas of the face where muscle contraction causes wrinkles. Typically, Dr. Mirabile, Dr. Hsu or our nurse injectors inject Botox in the areas of the central forehead and crow’s feet. Botox relaxes or paralyzes the muscles that cause the wrinkles, creating smoother skin within two weeks. With Botox treatments, although wrinkles tend to diminish, natural motion and facial expressions still remain.
Is Botox safe?
Botox is FDA approved and is recognized as a safe and effective treatment for facial wrinkling. It has been safely used for many years in tens of thousands of patients. Botox has been successfully helping patients by weakening the muscles that produces forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet lines.
What about long term effects?
The effects of Botox last three to four months. Getting repeated injections on a consistent basis have more profound effects, and treatments may then last longer. This can allow the complete elimination of many wrinkles. Many patients have their lines treated first by skin resurfacing, such as the CO2 Fractional Laser, than prevent their recurrence with Botox treatments.
