BOTOX® Cosmetic Smooths Skin for a Refreshed Look
Dr. Dennis Hurwitz offers BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment at his plastic surgery center in Pittsburgh, PA, to reduce wrinkles, crow’s feet, and furrows on the face.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a renowned, simple, and minimally invasive treatment that achieves many of the same results as more intensive procedures. BOTOX® has surged in popularity, because in the hands of a skilled practitioner, it delivers stunning results.
What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
A purified protein derived from botulinum toxin, BOTOX® is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to temporarily block nerve signals to the muscles that cause movement. When injected by a qualified professional into specific areas of the face—usually the forehead, outer corners of the eyes, between the eyes, and around the mouth—it minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and discourages new ones from developing.
According to a 2014 report by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, BOTOX® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S., with over six million treatments administered each year.
Your BOTOX® Consultation
Before you receive BOTOX® Cosmetic, you will meet with Dr. Hurwitz to determine your candidacy and discuss your goals. In general, the best candidates are men and women at least 18 years old, who are in good overall health, and have no history of neuromuscular disease.
BOTOX® can be strategically combined with fillers such as Restylane® and Sculptra® for optimal facial rejuvenation.
Candidates should have moderate to pronounced facial wrinkles in the areas that BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered, and also have realistic expectations about their results. Dr. Hurwitz will explain the degree of improvement that you can expect, and address any questions you have. If he does not think that BOTOX® will help you achieve your goals, he may recommend additional or alternative cosmetic treatments.
What to Expect
Physicians and surgeons administer all treatments with the assistance of skilled aestheticians and physician assistants. BOTOX® treatment only takes about ten minutes. Your doctor will inject the formula directly into the facial muscles that produce the targeted wrinkles.
Because this therapy is minimally invasive, there is no downtime, and you can return to normal activities right away. You can expect to see noticeable improvement in treated facial wrinkles within a few days of the procedure. The appearance of wrinkles should continue to improve for up to a month. Results typically last three to four months.
There are an array of benefits to receiving BOTOX® treatment:
- It can help you achieve a more youthful appearance while avoiding facial plastic surgery.
- BOTOX® can be strategically combined with fillers such as Restylane® and Sculptra®, for optimal facial rejuvenation.
- Patients who treat wrinkles between their eyes can alter their expression from one of constant anger or concern to relaxation and contentment.
- BOTOX® is quick and easy, with no recovery time required.
