Stress, natural aging, and sun damage can contribute to the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet, which can dramatically age your face. Botox® Cosmetic is a minimally invasive treatment option for those who wish to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles on the face.
Botox is one of many minimally invasive rejuvenation procedures available at Beyond Beautiful. Dr. Khattab is a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in the latest anti-aging techniques. If you’re considering Botox, he would be happy to explain the process in detail during a consultation.
Ideal candidates for Botox Cosmetic are men and women between the ages of 18 and 65 who wish to improve signs of aging on their face without surgery. Botox Cosmetic can be used to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows, reduce forehead creases, and eliminate crow’s feet.
The best candidates will possess good physical and mental health, as well as realistic cosmetic expectations. During your consultation, Dr. Khattab will be able to determine if Botox Cosmetic is the best treatment option available for your cosmetic goals.
The consultation: In order to determine if you are good candidate for Botox, you will need to be honest and upfront about every aspect of your health. Your consultation will include a physical exam, as well as a discussion of your medical history and cosmetic goals. This information will help Dr. Khattab determine if Botox is the right choice for you.
Procedure: Botox Cosmetic treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes and is often referred to as a “lunchtime” facial rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Khattab will determine the correct amount of Botox needed to reach your cosmetic goals. Then using a fine needle, he will inject the product into pre-determined treatment areas.
Recovery: There is no downtime required following Botox injections. You can resume normal physical and social activities right away. Makeup can also be applied immediately. Side effects associated with Botox Cosmetic are infrequent and generally mild. You may experience some swelling, pain or redness at the injection site.
Results: Once injected, Botox Cosmetic works by blocking the nerve impulses in the treatment area that are responsible for muscle contraction. When the muscles are no longer able to contract, the treatment area appears smoother and softer. Botox is not a permanent facial rejuvenation procedure. Results typically last for up to four months. Routine touch-ups will be necessary to achieve long lasting results.
