Every day we make a number of facial expressions. Every time we smile, speak, or laugh, we use certain muscles on the forehead and around the eyes and mouth. Over time, the constant use of muscles makes them taut and toned.
Where we may love this on other areas of the body, the overuse of facial muscles is a common cause of premature aging.
BOTOX® is a proven, effective, and safe cosmetic solution through which lines and wrinkles on the upper parts of the face can be diminished. Many of our patients choose to rejuvenate their appearance with this FDA-approved injectable.
How Botox Works
Injections of BOTOX® ease the contractions of muscles commonly used to make facial expressions. The minimally invasive treatment is typically very comfortable and takes only a few minutes to complete. Injections with a very fine needle produce a state of relaxation.
This does not mean, however, that you will completely lose the ability to show emotion. While many jokes have been made about the “freezing” effect of BOTOX® , the results achieved by discerning physicians such as Dr. Lombardi will let you show your best self.
BOTOX® has been used around the world for many years. Its excellent reputation has made this cosmetic treatment well known amongst men and women who want to remain in control of their own aging process.
Whether for wrinkle reduction or for a natural looking non-surgical brow lift, our use of BOTOX® Cosmetic will do wonders for your appearance and your confidence.
Dr. Lombardi may use BOTOX® to erase crow’s feet around the eyes, to diminish horizontal lines on the forehead, or erase vertical lines between the brows. Current usage also sees BOTOX® used around the mouth and on the neck in certain situations.
Your BOTOX® treatment will involve discussion and evaluation of your areas of concern. Dr. Lombardi will strategically insert the solution into superficial muscles. Though slight redness at injection sites may occur, this is typically very mild and you can resume normal activities immediately. The effects of BOTOX® will continue to develop over the course of about seven days. While every person metabolizes the medication at their own rate, most enjoy continued smoothness in the skin for four to six months.
