When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can remain even when your face is at rest and can make you look older, sad, angry, or tired.
Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country and one of our most requested services. Dr. Petroff personally administers all Botox injections at Petroff Center. The treatments can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, but they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Botox is made from a highly purified protein that is very safe when administered by a trained physician. The medication relaxes the muscles in the face that cause the wrinkles to form, smoothing the skin.
A good candidate for Botox treatment may be anyone looking to enhance their appearance by getting rid of unwanted lines or wrinkles. It is also important that patients seeking treatment with Botox are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing, and do not have a neuromuscular disorder.
Men and women considering Botox should have realistic expectations of what the procedure can do. You should discuss the desired results with Dr. Petroff to ensure that your goals can be achieved.
How are Botox injections administered?
After a thorough examination of your face – both at rest and in movement – and listening to your concerns about your appearance, Dr. Petroff will determine the best locations for your Botox injections and the proper dosage for a natural-looking result.
Through a series of tiny injections, he will use Botox to give you a rejuvenated look by smoothing crow’s feet beneath the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and/or horizontal lines across the forehead.
What is recovery from Botox like?
No downtime is required after Botox. You can go back to work or other activities immediately after your appointment. The results begin to show within a few days.
Some patients experience some very slight bruising for a day or two that can be covered with makeup.
How long does Botox last?
Quick, safe, and effective, Botox reduces or eliminates facial lines and wrinkles for up to six months.
