Botox is the well known trade name for botulinum toxin type A. This product is injected into the muscle and provides a paralysis that is localized. By weakening the muscle the creases or wrinkles associated with the muscle activity are decreased. The most common areas of treatment are horizontal forehead lines, corrugator creases between the eyes and the classic crows feet present lateral to the eye. There is high patient satisfaction with these treatments and there are minimal negative side effects.
Our practice utilizes a cooling device to pretreat the skin before injection, the goal is to provide a more comfortable experience and the cold also causes vasoconstriction which decreases the risk of bruising after the treatment. Botox has some secondary uses as in controlling hyperactive sweat glands of the armpit , hands and feet. It also may be utilized to treat the platysmal bands which are present in the anterior neck.
We have the unique partnership with our patients in regards to the utilization of Botox. It is important that Botox be used within a short period of time after reconstitution. We pre-book and pre-sell the bottle of Botox prior to opening it. This ensures that the patient is getting the most potent Botox possible and also at the best price since there is no waste from each bottle, a price that is normally passed along to the consumer. This is truly a win-win situation,we encourage you to give our program a try.
