BOTOX Cosmetic | Westminster MA
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the affects of facial wrinkles. Crows feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting BOTOX into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to any procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated may be marked and photographs may be taken in order to determine the amount of improvement that was achieved with the procedure.
The BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure
BOTOX Cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia because they are virtually painless. Only a small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated three times per year to retain the optimum effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience such dramatic results. BOTOX Cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging. If your situation is more advanced requiring use of either fillers, such as JUVEDERM, or surgery, Dr. Palermo will refer you to a Facial Cosmetic Surgeon for a complete consultation.
After the procedure patients may experience slight bruising around the area that usually quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. BOTOX Cosmetic is completely reversible so any side effect is a temporary condition that will auto correct itself. Dr. Palermo will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
