BOTOX® / Facial Aesthetics

What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of forehead lines and has successfully been used to treat a surprising range of additional conditions, such as gummy smiles, TMJ disorder, and many others. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified version of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It has been proven to reduce the effects of facial aging, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and other complexion issues. When injected into the skin, BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles. BOTOX® injections work by relaxing the contractions of the muscles that cause many common types of facial wrinkles; however, BOTOX® Cosmetic does not treat the type of wrinkle formed by loss of volume beneath the skin. Those wrinkles are often better treated with dermal fillers.

BOTOX® Cosmetic for Facial Rejuvenation

With BOTOX® injections, you can enjoy a refreshed, rejuvenated facial appearance. Combined with a cosmetic dental treatment like teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, these injections can be an ideal way to feel great about yourself any time you enter a room, whether it’s at work, the gym, out with friends at a restaurant, a quiet evening at home, or anywhere you go.

Dr. Nazli offers BOTOX® injections to soften and reduce wrinkles on various areas of the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to treat common concerns such as:

  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Horizontal forehead lines

BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been utilized to effectively address other types of aesthetic concerns; however, these applications are considered “off-label.” Some of these additional uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic include:

  • Improving signs of “smoker’s lines” or “lipstick lines” around the lips
  • Enhancing the eye areas to create a more “open” appearance
  • “Lifting” the eyebrows and improving their symmetry
  • Shaping the brows
  • Giving the tip of the nose more “lift”
  • Enhancing “lip show” in the upper lip
  • Making a “square jaw” look softer
  • Enhancing definition of the jawline
  • Softening the appearance of  bands and lines across the neck

The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last 3-4 months. Once the results begin to fade, injections can be administered to maintain the anti-aging effect.

What Is Treatment with BOTOX® Injections Like?

The actual BOTOX® treatment process is often very quick—as little as 10 to 15 minutes for many patients, depending on the extent of treatment required to achieve individual goals. Based on the customized treatment plan, Dr. Nazli will use a fine needle to precisely inject the BOTOX® Cosmetic solution into the areas targeted for rejuvenation. To reduce residual bruising after the procedure, Dr. Nazli can use a device called AccuVein® (described below) prior to injection, which allows him to visualize underlying veins and diminish the potential for excessive bruising following treatment. Once the BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure is complete, most patients do not need a period of downtime and can resume their regular daily activities immediately.
