Botox Cosmetic Scottsdale
We used to believe that wrinkles were as certain as death and taxes, but not any more. At our Scottsdale office, Botox® Cosmetic, which is the popular fix for celebrities and everyday people alike, is now accepted as a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows (frown lines), and in the “crow’s feet” areas of the face.
Botox Cosmetic Information
Botox Cosmetic works by weakening the muscles that surround wrinkles so that the muscles relax and the overlying skin flattens. Unlike injectable fillers like collagen, and fat transfers that fill in wrinkles or depressions, Botox Cosmetic physically weakens the muscles so that the facial skin is smoothed, relaxed, and natural-looking.
Dr. White’s highly trained, licensed aesthetician, Lynda Ludwig, R.N., performs the Botox injections, carefully selecting the precise area of injection for the best results possible. Because the paralysis of the facial muscles is temporary, re-injection is usually necessary within 3 to 10 months.
Other Procedures To Combine With Botox Cosmetic
Additional procedures that may enhance the results of Botox include Brow Lift, Eyelid Lift, Facelift, or Fillers such as Restylane®. If you are interested in getting multiple treatments at the same time, talk to Dr. White during your consultation to determine which additional treatments may be right for you.
Botox Cosmetic Injections
Botox Cosmetic injections generally take less than 30 minutes to administer. The specific risks and the suitability of Botox Cosmetic can be determined only at the time of your consultation with Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. White. All procedures have some degree of risk, but major complications are rare.
Schedule Your Botox Cosmetic Consultation
Before you come in for a Botox Cosmetic treatment, it is recommended that you schedule a consultation so Dr. White can determine the areas in which Botox Cosmetic will be administered. In addition to determining where Botox will be injected, the amount of product that will be administered can also be determined during your consultation.
If you have any questions about your Botox Cosmetic treatment, be sure to ask during your consultation, as Dr. White will be more than happy to help answer any questions or concerns you may have.
