Behaviors like squinting, frowning, and worrying can cause individuals to constantly look tired or angry. BOTOX® Cosmetic, however, relaxes the muscle. Although patients are still able to express emotions naturally, the appearance of lines and wrinkles is greatly reduced.

As we age, repeated facial movements like squinting, smiling, or frowning cause wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. Botox diminishes these wrinkles and helps prevent them from getting deeper.
Botox uses botulinum toxin, which is derived from bacteria and blocks the nerve signals to the muscles. The product is injected into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles and fine lines, temporarily paralyzing them and therefore softening their appearance.
There are a wide variety of uses for Botox, which range from treating migraines to hyperhidrosis. In terms of the product’s cosmetic uses, Botox can treat wrinkles and fine lines including crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines.
During the Botox procedure, Dr. Rosenberg will determine the exact muscles responsible for creating the wrinkles and fine lines you wish to address and inject the product into those areas. The injections use a very small needle and patients typically find that the treatment is not painful, and describe it as minimally uncomfortable at worst. The treatment only takes about thirty minutes.
After receiving Botox injections, you may return to normal activities immediately if you wish. Most patients experience some swelling and bruising, which subsides within the first few days following treatment.
The results of Botox injections are not permanent. Typically, they last for up to four months. After this period, you may receive maintenance injections to keep up your results.
To find out if Botox is a good fit for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Rosenberg. In some cases, treatment may be performed on the same day as your consultation if you are a good candidate.
