BOTOX® Cosmetic

BotoxLogoBOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable dermal filler that consists of onabotulinumtoxinA. This goes into areas of the face to diminish the appearance of active wrinkles. It is a very quick outpatient procedure done in the office which involves the injection of small amounts of the BOTOX® Cosmetic into specific muscles to weaken their effect on wrinkling. BOTOX® Cosmetic is now the most common cosmetic procedure done. You should notice results very soon after the BOTOX® injection, usually three to four days, and it typically lasts for about three months. Dramatic results are often achieved and there is an extremely high satisfaction rate among patients. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not permanent and many patients choose to do the procedure every three to four months. You can go right back to work after a BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure in the office and resume full activities the next day. Although there are other products used for treating wrinkles, our plastic surgeon, Dr. David L. Durst, has the most experience using BOTOX® Cosmetic, and he prefers to use this treatment because of the predictability of the results that he can achieve. If you are interested in considering a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment please call the office and we will schedule an appointment for you.
