Frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet tell the story of our lives and often reveal age and wear. In today’s culture, the pressure to look beautiful and younger is real, and our wrinkles can hinder our ability to live up to this standard. If you have stubborn wrinkles, BOTOX Cosmetic may be the answer you’ve been looking for. BOTOX is the name that refers to botulinum toxin type A, which works to give you a refreshed appearance that gives you your youthful glow back.
Our practice offers treatment with both BOTOX and Dysport, a similar but slightly different type of Botulinum toxin which Dr. Dubow may recommend based upon your particular anatomy and treatment needs.
Why Choose BOTOX Cosmetic
Botox Cosmetic will smooth the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Dubow always strives to make sure you appear refreshed instead of frozen of overdone after your Botox or Dysport treatment.
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX and Dysport work because they contain a purified form of the botulinum toxin protein. When Dr. Dubow injects tiny amounts of the toxin into your muscles, the neuromodulator reduces the activity of the muscles that create the wrinkles and fine lines underneath your skin.
What Should I Expect During Treatment?
Injections are performed with a tiny needle at various points along the wrinkle lines and underlying muscle. Generally, injections only take a few minutes to perform.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
After approximately 3-5 days, you will begin to see results.
Initially, you will notice that your ability to squeeze the muscles that created the lines in diminished. Thereafter, the lines will begin to soften and fade over the ensuing weeks to months. The effects of a BOTOX or Dysport typically last for 3 to 6 months depending upon the individual patient and area(s) being treated.
Is BOTOX Only For Wrinkles?
In addition to being an effective treatment for wrinkles, BOTOX is also used by Dr. Dubow to treat axillary, palmar, and plantar hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. If you suffer from excessive perspiration in the underarms, hands, feet, face, or scalp contact Dr. Dubow to see how BOTOX or Dysport may help relive this bothersome condition.
