FDA-approved for cosmetic use, Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections have become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures on the market today, so effective at temporarily reducing wrinkles that over 800,000 patients have received them annually since 2001. Botox works by temporarily blocking the nerve transmissions to the treated area, thus smoothing out the skin. Especially effective at treating frown lines, crows feet, and the horizontal lines of the forehead, Botox is a safe way to quickly and easily reduce wrinkles with little or no down time or discomfort.
Performed as an outpatient procedure at Plastic Surgeons of Northern Arizona, Botox involves a series of pinprick size injections administered through a very fine needle. The actual number of injections depends on the area being treated. A smoothing effect takes place by the end of the first week, and the results last anywhere from between three to six months. There are few potential adverse side affects, and many patients even report a reduction in tension type headaches following their Botox treatment.
Our team of highly skilled surgeons may recommend Botox as a stand alone procedure, or in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing and fillers for maximum effect. Botox is also an effective addition to many surgical procedures such as a face lift, blepharoplasty, or brow lift. Since there is no down time associated with Botox injections, you can book an appointment in your off hours, and return to work without your colleagues being any the wiser!
