BOTOX® Cosmetic in Somerville
Make your fine lines disappear
BOTOX® treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and can be eliminated with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create wrinkles.
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to the procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.
The BOTOX® Procedure
BOTOX® injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botox is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
After the operation patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases, an eyelid may droop. BOTOX® is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated with the time of your consultation.
