BOTOX® COSMETIC

Dermatologist Orange County
 

Description

A Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time. One ten-minute treatment - a few tiny injections - relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed for up to four months. Botox® Cosmetic has been widely tested. Now, it is approved by the FDA.

The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, Botox® Cosmetic virtually "erases" these lines.

Unlike surgery, Botox® Cosmetic is fast, simple and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With Botox® Cosmetic, other people will know you've done something, but they just won't know what.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM BOTOX® COSMETIC

Your doctor will determine exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although he or she may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief - most patients compare the sensation to bug bite. It is unlikely you will develop significant side effects, although some people develop slight temporary bruising at the injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup. You may resume normal activity immediately.

Within days, you'll see a marked improvement which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to four months.

Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the overactive muscles whose repeated contractions cause the lines between your brows to form. So you can frown, smile or look surprised - without the furrows, creases and wrinkles.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BOTOX® COSMETIC?

Any image-conscious man or woman who is concerned about the appearance of their frown lines can consider treatment. Botox Cosmetic can be used by people from age 18 to 65.

WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?

Botox® is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Very low doses of Botox® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic are usually confined to the injected region; it does not travel throughout the body.

ARE BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENTS PAINFUL?

Botox® Cosmetic discomfort is minimal and brief. Your physician may choose to use a local anesthetic cream or ice to minimize this. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort.

HOW LONG DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC LAST?

Botox® Cosmetic lasts up to four months.

Common Skin Disorders Treated by Botox®

BOTOX® FOR TREATMENT OF hyperhidrosis
(Severe Underarm Sweating)

Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating, is a medical condition that involves hyperactive sweat glands. Sweat is your body's temperature regulator. In severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, sweating significantly exceeds the body's normal requirements. Severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis often goes undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, and untreated due to lack of awareness.

BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) injection is a treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis patients who are not responding to topical therapies, such as over-the-counter antiperspirants and topical aluminum chloride hexahydrate.

BOTOX® is not a cure, but an ongoing treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis not adequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX® treatment helps control severe underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. Research has shown that treating severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis with BOTOX® may provide effective, temporary control in many patients.

BOTOX® is not a cure; your symptoms will return gradually, and you will know when the time is right for another treatment. will recommend a treatment strategy to ensure that you receive the best possible results with BOTOX® treatment.
