Botox Treatment

BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). BOTOX Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. In 2005, about 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved BOTOX Cosmetic.

The treatment takes only about 10 minutes per area and few very small, nearly painless injections and within days you will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of the wrinkles on your face. The results may last up to four months.

BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.

How Does It Work?

Botox blocks the nerve signal transmission between the nerve endings and the muscle fibers in the area of injection. The blockage stops muscle contraction which creates a smoother surface and decreases the wrinkling. The blockage lasts up to 4 months.

The Injection Process

On your first visit, you will be evaluated to assure that you are a suitable candidate for Botox injection. Please make sure to communicate all your medical problems including your current medications to Dr. Soltanian prior to the treatment. Dr. Soltanian will review the options and the locations of injections with you.

The injections take about 10 minutes to perform. Depending on the location, Dr. Soltanian may use topical anesthetic cream to make the injections more comfortable for you. After the injection you will be instructed in cooling the area to decrease swelling and bruising. There is no down-time. You may return to your regular activities. We may ask you to avoid strenuous activities and direct sun exposure for 24 hours.

You may expect to see results within few days after the injection.
