BOTOX is almost the perfect cosmetic procedure. It is FDA approved, safe, easy and essentially pain free. There are many indications for BOTOX. The most common one is to soften wrinkles in the area between the eyebrows and smooth out the forehead. BOTOX can also give a subtle lift to the eyebrows and can open up the eyes a bit, making crow’s feet look better. We treat both men and women.
BOTOX is injected through a very fine needle. It takes about 3 to 7 days for the BOTOX to work, so plan accordingly. After a treatment session, the muscles stay quiet for three to four months.
You may worry that BOTOX will make you expressionless. This is simply not true. What matters is how much BOTOX is injected and where, and sometimes less is actually more! BOTOX is incredibly effective, but should only be performed by a physician or trained injector. Our providers at Ada Dermatology have extensive experience with BOTOX so you can be sure you will be getting the very best.
Repeat injections are necessary to maintain your results over time. Keep in mind that BOTOX cannot be injected during pregnancy or if you are nursing.
There are many “off label” uses for BOTOX that we cannot discuss here, but will at your visit. We charge by the unit at Ada Dermatology. Patients can also save on injections by participating in manufacturer points programs such as Brilliant Distinctions Points Program for Botox, or Aspire Rewards if you’re using Dysport.
