When you smile, laugh, frown or look puzzled, you contract various muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. BOTOX® cosmetic treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
BOTOX® injections are one of the most popular nonsurgical treatments performed to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles through minimally invasive techniques. These injections are made from Botulinum Toxin A, a therapeutic muscle relaxing agent approved by the FDA for several medical uses. When injected into the skin precisely, it can block the nerve impulses that are responsible for the repetitive muscle actions that cause fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing them away for a younger and more refreshed appearance.
What can BOTOX® treatments do for me?
BOTOX® cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States and one of our most requested services. Quick, safe and effective, BOTOX® reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles with no downtime or surgery and little to no discomfort. Through a series of tiny injections, BOTOX® gives you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crows feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines across the forehead, worry lines around the mouth and lines on the neck. After treatment, the appearance of your wrinkles begins to improve within 48 hours with full results developing gradually over the next 5 to 7 days. The results of BOTOX® injections typically last 3 to 4 months, with some patients reporting results lasting 6 months to a full year.
The importance of choosing a qualified physician
Even though BOTOX® is not a surgical procedure, it is very important to choose a highly experienced and qualified physician when deciding to undergo BOTOX® treatments. Doctors or nurse injectors who are less familiar with the proper techniques could leave you looking “frozen” or perpetually surprised. Dr. Lowry is an exceptionally trained cosmetic facial plastic surgeon with over 25 years of experience with BOTOX® having successfully treated tens of thousands of patients in our offices. He personally performs all cosmetic injectables. Moreover, Dr. Lowry will take the time to talk with each candidate before beginning injections to find out what he or she wants to achieve and to determine how to best correct the problem areas. As a cosmetic specialist, Dr. Lowry will often combine Botox® treatments with dermal fillers or surgical treatments to achieve outstanding natural results.
