Learn More About Botox®
Are you looking for a minimally invasive procedure to enhance your facial appearance? Botulinum, aka Botox or Xeomin can help reverse visible signs of aging through injections. Utilizing a fine needle, a small deposit of the product is injected into the targeted muscle. The muscle relaxes, and you can achieve a younger and more dynamic appearance. Commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead, crow’s feet and upper lip. We improve an aging look by treating jowls, apple dimpling of the chin and neck bands which erase an aging look. Botulinum is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the USA. Minimal discomfort is experienced during treatment. Occasional side effects such as bruising or swelling can occur, and we’ll advise you how to manage the side effects until they disappear.

Who Should Use Botulinum (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport or Jeuveau)
Age or sex is not a factor in determining the use of botulinum for cosmetic purposes. Frequently, men and women in their mid-twenties, and well into their eighties seek a minimally invasive procedure that improves an aging appearance.
A consultation before treatment establishes the goals of the patient and a course of therapy is discussed at that time. Following treatment visible improvement occurs within two days. Lines begin to soften and generally at two weeks the full benefit is seen. Results are maintained on an average of 3 to 4 month. Maintenance therapy is advised since continued therapy preserves the benefit of an ageless appearance.
What you can expect from Botulinum?
A fine needle is used to selectively administer the product and discomfort is minimal. The most common side effects are some swelling and bruising which resolve quickly and are easily camouflaged. A softening and disappearance of wrinkles results in the emergence of a rested and more youthful appearance. A harsh, aged and even dissipated look is reversed.
One treatment, and sometimes a touch-up within two weeks results in optimal correction using Botulinum. If you’re looking for Botox in Middlebury, CT or NYC contact our practice today to learn more about our botulinum services.
