BOTOX®
   
  WHAT IS IT:
FAQS *
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a miracle drug; a few tiny injections and years of age and wrinkles are removed in a few days. Specifically approved by the FDA for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows, standard treatments may include removal of forehead lines and treatment of Crow’s feet lines around the eyes. At MD Cosmetic & Laser Center, we also provide innovative treatments with BOTOX® including eyebrow lifts, lip and chin wrinkle removal, and neck band treatment.
 
  HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
The wrinkles in the facial area make us look old and tired. When injected beneath the skin, BOTOX® Cosmetic causes the muscles to relax, so that the skin is no longer puckered. The wrinkles begin to disappear within a few days after treatment leaving the skin with a smooth appearance. The effects of BOTOX® usually wear off in 4-6 months.
 
  WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT?
 
The tiny injections may cause some redness for a few hours, however they do not cause any down time. Patients may return to full activities and work immediately after treatment. Occasionally, some bruising may occur which will last a few days.
  Isn’t BOTOX® a poison, isn’t it dangerous and doesn’t it lead to paralysis?
   
  No, its one of the safest drugs in the world. The results and the side effects are always temporary.
   
  Is BOTOX® only used around the eyes and forehead?
   
  No, BOTOX® is used for cosmetic treatments on the upper lip, lower lip, chin, jaw, and the neck. It also has other medical uses in the underarms, hands, and feet to prevent excessive sweating.
   
  Is it painful to have BOTOX® treatment?
   
  No, the injections are performed with such a fine gauge needle that patients do not feel or mind the pain. Not a single patient of mine, in the thousands of injection which I have given, complained that they could not tolerate the completion of the procedure.
