Looking for an experienced dermatologist to perform your BOTOX Cosmetic®? More and more people are turning to BOTOX® to reduce frown lines between their brows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. BOTOX® can brighten up your attitude and outlook, remove the wrinkles of time, or make small improvements in an otherwise perfect face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Overview
More and more people are turning to BOTOX® to reduce frown lines between their brows, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet. It is a safe and effective procedure that delivers consistent results, with no downtime and minimal discomfort.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® is specially formulated with a purified protein, which relaxes the muscles when injected into the targeted area, ultimately reducing the appearance of frown lines and facial wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing patients to return to normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. If necessary, a topical anesthesia can be used before your Fresno BOTOX® procedure.
Is BOTOX® safe?
FDA approved, Botox® is a safe and effective procedure that provides patients with results that can last anywhere from 3 to 5 months, on average. BOTOX has been used for over 20 years for a variety of medical conditions, and it has been FDA approved for cosmetic usage since 2002.
Only licensed and trained healthcare professionals have the experience necessary to administer BOTOX. Dr. Behr has been using BOTOX for 15 years, and she is a trainer for other healthcare professionals.
BOTOX® side effects
Following the BOTOX® procedure, it is not uncommon to experience some minor swelling, redness, or bruising around the targeted site. Patients can take Tylenol and/or use ice packs to help reduce swelling and relieve any discomfort. Other side effects include drooping of the eyelids, nausea, headache, and respiratory infection, but these only occur in about 1% of patients. The side effects are temporary, and they usually resolve themselves within a few weeks.
A recent survey reported that about 97% of patients were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX®. Dr. Behr has patients follow up in her office two weeks after their treatment, to make sure they are satisfied with their results. If a small touch up is done at this time, it is usually free of charge.
