Botox is a weakened form of Botulinum toxin. It works by weakening the muscles that control facial expressions. It can be an extremely effective treatment for wrinkles in the upper third of the face, including the forehead, between the eyes, and around the eyes in the “crows feet” areas.
In general, the best candidates are individuals with mild wrinkling of the face. During the initial consultation, Dr. Roesner will determine if you are a good candidate for neurotoxin, or if an alternative cosmetic technique will yield better results.
Using a very tiny needle, small amounts of neurotoxin are injected into the muscles to be paralyzed. Depending on the areas being treated, 5 to 15 needle pricks (or more) may be required. Discomfort is minimal and lasts only a few seconds. This paralysis is temporary, and re-injection is necessary within three to six months.
The first step is to schedule a personal consultation. Communication is crucial in reaching your goals. You will have the opportunity to express your goals and the results you’d like to achieve. Together, you will reach an understanding about what you can expect from this procedure and the benefits you will experience. Every patient is different, and your injection specialist will choose the technique and treatment plan that is right for you. During the initial consultation:
