BOTOX® Cosmetic in Boston
Dr. Katherine Hein offers BOTOX® Cosmetic to men and women who desire to treat wrinkles that can develop around the eye and eyebrow area. With the expert injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic, the muscle movement in the treatment area is temporarily relaxed, thereby smoothing out the furrows and wrinkles. BOTOX® treatments are FDA-approved for use in treating moderate to severe crow’s feet (i.e., the lines that crop up around the outer corners of the eyes) and moderate to severe frown lines (i.e., the vertical lines that occur between the eyebrows).
WHAT IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical procedure that softens the persistent lines of the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes that develop over time. Botox® is injected into the muscles causing the unwanted lines to soften as it relaxes these muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic injectable treatments do not require any downtime. The advantages of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment typically last about four months.* It has been widely tested and has been approved by the FDA since 2002.
WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX® COSMETIC INJECTIONS?
Generally, appropriate candidates for this BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment include those who:
- Wish to improve the look of wrinkles around the outer corners of the eyes or in between the eyebrows
- Do not have a history of allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic
- Do not currently have a skin infection in the treatment area
If you want to soften the lines of your forehead, brow, or around your eyes through a minimally invasive procedure, BOTOX® may be right for you. Dr. Hein will review your goals and medical history as part of your initial consultation.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM BOTOX® COSMETIC INJECTIONS?
Before starting treatment, Dr. Hein reviews your medical history, evaluates your skin health, and listens to your cosmetic concerns. She may apply a topical anesthetic, if needed, to maximize patients’ comfort throughout the treatment. The desired treatment area is cleaned with an antiseptic, such as alcohol, prior to injecting a small amount of the product into the treatment site. Directly after treatment, an ice pack may be temporarily applied to the treatment site, to minimize swelling and discomfort.*
The procedure consists of several tiny injections in the desired area. No anesthesia is required, and no downtime is needed, so patients can resume their normal activities after their injection.*
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT AFTER BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT?
Immediately after BOTOX® treatment, the treatment site may be itchy, red, swollen, or tender, but symptoms are expected and should subside over time.* Applying an ice pack to the treatment area should help alleviate any discomfort.
Patients must avoid rubbing the treatment area for twelve hours and avoid lying down for three to four hours after treatment, to prevent the product from migrating to unwanted areas. They should also avoid strenuous activities, including exercise, directly following treatment.*
The aesthetic results of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment generally last about four months.* At that point, patients can undergo another treatment to maintain the aesthetic outcome. Depending on your unique cosmetic goals, Dr. Hein will recommend a suitable treatment protocol to sustain your cosmetic results.
