What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic is the brand name of a purified protein that, when injected into specific small muscles, causes controlled weakening of those muscles. Many of the wrinkles in the eye area are caused by muscle tension that remains from facial movement such as frowning or squinting. BOTOX Cosmetic is a great way to enhance the results of a facelift in Denver or prolong surgical intervention because it safely and effectively relaxes the muscles that control:
- Vertical frown lines between the eyes
- Horizontal forehead furrows
- Crow's feet at the outer corners of the eyes
The result is a smoother, more youthful looking upper face, with no impairment of facial expressions. In Colorado, BOTOX has been safely administered to thousands of patients over the past decade, with results that are subtle and natural looking. For improved skin quality, laser skin resurfacing in Denver may be combined with BOTOX injections.
Getting BOTOX in Denver, Colorado
Part of the appeal of BOTOX Cosmetic is that it is a quick, almost painless procedure with little to no downtime. Unlike facial plastic surgery procedures in Colorado such as eyelid surgery (which usually take a few hours to perform), your BOTOX visit may only be 15 to 30 minutes, so you can get it done on your lunch hour.
First, Dr. Menachof cleanses the area to be treated, and may apply a topical anesthetic. He will ask you to frown or squint so that he can identify exactly where to make the injections. The injections are performed using a tiny needle that causes very little discomfort, and minimal redness and swelling. If a cool compress is applied for a few minutes, swelling and redness should be almost unnoticeable. Results from BOTOX Cosmetic are not immediate, but emerge over 5 to 7 days. Most of our patients who get BOTOX at our Denver office find that their results last up to 6 months, with improved results with regularly scheduled treatments.
