Botox Injections

What is Botox?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a highly purified protein that is injected into the skin to relax the muscles that cause some kinds of wrinkles.

While Botox is used to treat certain medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, it is most commonly used for cosmetic purposes, primarily to reduce wrinkles on the face and neck.

Why Use Botox?

As we age, fine lines and wrinkles slowly develop on our face and neck. Sometimes these wrinkles and fine lines can appear prematurely due to overexposure to the sun, harsh environmental conditions, and emotional stress. Deeper wrinkles result from a combination of many factors: cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. Deeper wrinkles are most noticeable between the brows (frown lines) and around the eye area (crow’s feet).

Botox works beneath the skin’s surface to target the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. It is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.

Is injectable BOTOX safe?

Botox Cosmetic is widely considered one of the safest cosmetic injectables available. Although the majority of its side effects are rare and temporary, Dr. Rosselli always recommends a consultation to address any of your questions or concerns before the procedure.

While most people will experience no side effects from Botox®, the most common side effects are headaches and temporary redness or bruising of the skin at the site of injection. Any risk of complications can be greatly reduced by choosing an experienced physician.

In addition, it is important that those seeking a Botox treatment are in good physical health, are not pregnant or nursing and do not have a neuromuscular disorder.

Is injectable BOTOX painful?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are minimally-invasive and relatively painless, requiring a much finer needle than is used for other injectable fillers. The procedure takes only a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. Most day-to-day activities can be resumed immediately afterwards.

Who is BOTOX for?

The best candidates for Botox are men and women seeking an enhanced appearance with fewer wrinkles.
