Botox® Cosmetic

Looking for a more refreshed, youthful look? Botox may be just the answer for you. You have read about and almost certainly know someone who has had Botox cosmetic injections. Dr. Thomas offers Botox as the most significant non surgical procedure to enhance your appearance. Before starting Botox, Dr. Thomas will discuss thoroughly with you your objectives and your suitability for Botox cosmetic injections.

How does Botox work?

The muscles of facial expression are under the control of motor nerves. Electrical impulses from the motor nerves are blocked by Botox when it binds to these nerve endings and blocks the release of acetylcholine(required for muscle activation). With decreased muscular activity of the underlying muscles, the overlying skin will demonstrate blunted movement and a subsequent reduction in lines and wrinkles.

How long does it take to see the benefits of Botox injection?

Typically, you will begin to see a difference within 2-3 days with full benefit being realized in approximately 14 days.

How long does Botox last?

Botox effects last on average about 3 months. After several treatments, you may notice that you need Botox less frequently.

What about side effects?

Side effects from Botox are uncommon but include bruising, headache and drooping of eyelid(s).
