Botulinum toxin injections (Botox®) are used for the treatment of frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and “crow’s feet” associated with aging or unwanted facial expressions. Dr. Casas will discuss ways to use Botox® that will allow your eyes to look more youthful and less angry. She believes that using too much Botox® will result in an unnatural, expressionless face. Together you will decide the best way to use Botox® to achieve your desired result.
The full effect of Botox® is typically achieved within a few days but may take up to fourteen days. Almost immediately after the procedure, you may resume normal activity. Most side effects like localized bruising and pain are mild and of short duration. To maintain the desired result, Botox® treatments are needed every three to four months.
Dr. Casas will discuss with you whether your result may be enhanced with skin care products, dermal fillers, or other surgical or non-surgical procedures.
