BOTOX® in Langhorne, PA

29 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

One of the more common procedures at Cosmetic Surgery Specialists are BOTOX injections. Decades of smiling, laughing, frowning, and crying begin to leave a visible imprint on your face with dynamic wrinkles. Typically seen in the forehead between the eyebrows as furrow lines or in the corner of the eyes as crow's feet, dynamic wrinkles used to disappear when you relaxed your face, but are now becoming visible all the time. To treat these unwanted lines, Cosmetic Surgery Specialists in Langhorne, Bucks County, PA, can artfully inject BOTOX to soften and smooth specific facial muscles. Once the muscle is temporarily relaxed, the skin will also smooth and soften to reduce dynamic wrinkles. If you are beginning to notice expression lines that don't go away, schedule a consultation at Cosmetic Surgery Specialists to learn more about BOTOX injectable wrinkle relaxer treatments.

Injection Technique

Tiny doses of BOTOX are injected into the skin where wrinkles are noticeable. The procedure is done right in our office and can last from 15-30 minutes. The number of injections and dose amounts administered varies by patient depending on the severity of wrinkles. Patients will be able to go home right after treatment with minimal to no downtime from their normal routine.

What to Expect

After treatment, mild swelling where the BOTOX was injected may appear and fade within the next hour. Patients are advised to limit exercise and to stay in an upright position for a few hours the treatment. The results from a BOTOX treatment take 10 – 14 days to appear.

BOTOX FAQs

How Safe Is It?

When administered properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. A skilled practitioner will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today. It is safe and effective, and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). BOTOX is also used to treat other medical conditions such as squints, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking and migraines.

Same As BOTOX?

In recent years, BOTOX has seen some competition as other drugs have been approved by the FDA, and introduced to the aesthetic market. Dysport and Xeomin are muscle relaxers similar to BOTOX. Each has its specific trending function that can be addressed during the initial consultation. Sometimes, a combination of the drugs is used to treat various areas.

Are Fillers Better?

BOTOX and fillers are both popular cosmetic treatments with the ability to decrease wrinkles and smoothen facial areas. The difference with each is the way the substances function to create the rejuvenating effect. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to fill hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. BOTOX, on the other hand, relaxes the muscles underneath the skin so that the muscles cannot contract, allowing a softer effect on the surface. It is very common for patients to undergo treatment using both a muscle relaxer and an injectable filler to attain optimal results.

Best Candidates?

Today, practitioners are treating patients of all ages with BOTOX. For some individuals, for example those as young as 30, BOTOX is considered a preventative way to prevent facial wrinkles. For others (i.e. 40-50 years old and older), it is a rejuvenation effort to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Long Does It Last?

A BOTOX injection will last between 3 – 4 months. The treatment can be repeated every quarter and for most patients who receive this treatment, they usually come back for more. BOTOX is an effective, easy and safe way to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles. Patients consider it a part of their normal beauty routine.
