If you want your face to have a more youthful appearance, you should visit us at our dermatology practice, Dr. Ghatan, for treatment with Botox. Botox is used to treat facial wrinkles, and our patients can receive treatment as part of their face care from our top-notch dermatologist, Dr. Eliot Ghatan.
Today, treatment with Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around. In fact, over half a million people have been treated with Botox over the past year. Treatment usually takes one short 10-minute session. Patients will receive some tiny injections directly into the area which is being treated. Over the next few days, the lines in your face and brow begin to dramatically relax. Botox is extremely effective in treating the “eleven” lines between your brows, as well as treating wrinkles on your forehead. It is also effective for treating crow’s feet. There is no surgery involved in this treatment, and there is no recovery time during which your face is looking irritated. Patients are happy to know that our Botox face care is safe, has been widely tested, and is approved by the FDA for treatment. In low doses, Botox actually relaxes muscles that cause frown lines to form. The treatment will smooth the deep and persistent lines on your face that have developed over time. It is approved for the temporary treatment of facial lines in people who are between the ages of 18 and 65. Generally, Botox remains in the treated muscle, and will not travel to other places in your body. Results from Botox treatment will last about four months. Once the treatment time nears expiration, the lines will gradually return to their pre-treatment appearance. Botox treatment will not make you lose expression in your face, and you will still be able to frown, smile, or look surprised.
