Botox is a purified protein treatment formed from Botulinium A that gives quick and painless removal of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles.
Usually three areas are required which are the glabeller (between eyebrows), the frontalis (the forehead) and the Crow's feet (around eyes). The first TX. required more botox and continue for 3-5 months. The next Tx. need 20% less botox and stay for six months saving more money. I'm (Dr. Shehata) is well trained for upper and lower face areas which is very unique for lower face.
Also trained to remove the wrinkles at the front upper chest below the neck. Also I use Botox for hyperhydrosis (Excessive sweating) in palms and underarm. Botox is also used in pain management as Migraine headaches and stiff neck. Hyperhydrosis and pain management cost $7/unit
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
Those moderate to severe wrinkles form over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to theinjected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe lines. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 6 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results may vary.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, we may numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Many people are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
Who should not use BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
