A BOTOX Cosmetic procedure reduces or eliminates laugh lines, frown lines, and surprise lines around the eyes and forehead. These types of lines naturally emerge as we go about our normal lives. By taking just a few minutes in Dr. Philip Bushnick’s offices, the Botox treatment will smooth out these areas, giving you a younger, more relaxed look. You can resume normal activities immediately and witness a more youthful you appear over the next few days.
We proudly participate in Allergan’s Brilliant Distinctions program, through which our patients can earn points for BOTOX Cosmetic and JUVÉDERM treatments, as well as purchases of LATISSE® and other select products.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified, safe form of botulinum toxin which Dr. Bushnick injects via tiny needles to relax target facial muscles. You’ll feel just a small sting. Risks of the procedure are minimal, including rare instances of bruising or swelling. The effects typically last a few months with follow-up treatments often lasting longer.
A BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment
When you visit our office for BOTOX Cosmetic Treatments, you can anticipate a relatively quick, straightforward appointment during which your comfort, safety, and satisfaction are our highest priorities.
We begin by gently cleansing your face to clear away oil, makeup, and other debris. We then make a series of quick injections in or around your primary areas of concern. We may ask you to make certain facial expressions during this time to ensure accuracy. Each injection lasts only a moment and feels like a small, quick pinch. Afterward, we may offer you a cold compress to help minimize swelling.
You can expect to be at the office for about 30 minutes. Immediately following your treatment, you can resume nearly all of your regular activities. However, it’s important to avoid movements that require you to bend forward or lower your head for the remainder of the day. This allows the product to distribute evenly for attractive, natural-looking results.
BOTOX Cosmetic is often performed on its own, but it can also be a wonderful accompaniment to other non-surgical treatments. For example, it’s popular to combine BOTOX Cosmetic with dermal fillers to add volume to the face while fading wrinkles. This procedure is often called a “liquid facelift” and can be effectively performed without anesthesia or recovery time.
The results of BOTOX can also complement the skin-clearing results of laser skin rejuvenation. During your consultation, your practitioner discusses your options with you to help you decide whether a complementary treatment is likely to give you the results you want.
