BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS
To address moderate to sever unwanted facial lines, our practice utilizes Botox Cosmetic. Botox is an FDA approved injectable which targets muscle movements in the face to temporarily decrease the severity of contractions which lead to deep set wrinkles.
Treatment with Botox injections typically takes only 10 to 15 minutes. For your first treatment with our office, you should allow extra time for a thorough consultation with Dr. Szymanski. She will take the time to evaluate your goals and expectations and work with you to decide on the best treatment for you. Some patients prefer pre-treatment with a numbing cream to help dull any discomfort, while others forgo anesthetic and are injected without.
Following injection, patients typically go back to their day without issues. Most patient begin to notice results within a few days, but full effect is typically reached at 14 days. Each patient is different, but Botox injections are typically repeated every 3 to 4 months to maintain the desired result.
