BOTOX® Cosmetic and Soft Tissue Fillers

Over time, we have seen a tremendous rise in the amount of injectable treatments to help people prevent and treat the signs of facial aging. The most important thing to remember about any of these treatments is that while they are readily available at many locations, they are technique dependent and patients will notice the difference when performed by experienced, expert providers. You will notice the difference at our office.

When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Botox and other Neurotoxins such as Xeomin, Dysport, and Jeuveau, work to weaken the muscles associated with these wrinkles to help lessen their appearance.

Dermal fillers are used to add volume in the deeper wrinkles and also to help shape your face by augmenting your cheeks, chin, jawline, lower eyelids, nose, temporal hollows, hands, and other areas to leave you looking younger and refreshed.

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Waldman Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, we offer patients several different dermal filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs.

Our board certified providers, Drs. Cheryl and Jeremy Waldman and our wonderful staff of PA’s, all perform injection procedures.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX CosmeticBotox injections are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive injections. These injections are made from botulinum toxic A, a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several different uses. When injected into the skin, it can block the nerve muscles that are responsible for the repetitive actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance. Dr. Waldman gently injects each patient personally with the smallest needle available to ensure the best possible result with negligible discomfort.

After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles usually begins to improve within 24 hours, with full results developing gradually over the next five to ten days. Most patients achieve their desired results after just one injection, although additional treatment sessions may be required in the future. The results of Botox injections typically last up to three to four months, with some patients reporting results lasting up to a full year.*

HOW BOTOX® COSMETIC WORKS

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.

  • How much time does treatment will take? Will it hurt?

    The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

    Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office. We do recommend avoiding exercise for a few hours after treatment.

  • Will I see results quickly? How long do treatment effects last?

    You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Most patients will have full results in about 10 days. Be patient, some patients will notice only partial correction over the first few days with gradual improvement after that. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
