All About BOTOX

What is Botox?

Botox is a substance which causes the temporary relaxation of muscles. It has been one of the greatest advances in non-invasive and minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. More that 4.2 million Americans had one or more Botox procedures in 2015 and there is no sign of a slowdown. Lines and wrinkles that are associated with the day-to-day activity of facial movement such as frowning, smiling, squinting and raising our eyebrows can be reduced and prevented through the use of Botox.  Patients can be assured that Botox injections are safe and will produce the expected result when done properly.

What does Botox treat?

BOTOX can improve or reduce lines and wrinkles of facial expression such as:

  • Crow’s feet (lines on the sides of the eyes)
  • Frown lines or the “elevens” (the vertical lines between the eyebrows)
  • Forehead lines (the horizontal lines above the eyebrows)
  • Raising the eyebrow position as well as raise the corners of the mouth.
  • BOTOX is an effective treatment for migraines and underarm sweating.

Will I have a “frozen shocked look”?

Dr Khalaf always aims to produce a natural result. The trick is to make sure all facial muscles are balanced and not too relaxed. That’s how we tend to avoid the “frozen look” while attaining a natural rejuvenated relaxed look instead. Touch ups are always a better way to boost the effect of the treatment if the patient feels more Botox is needed.

Experience makes all the difference

Botox is a reliable solution to frown lines and wrinkles as long as it is administered by a trained practitioner who understands facial musculature. Although Botox is highly popular and readily available, patients should be cautious that they undergo the procedure only to by certified trained medical practitioner, preferable a physician. Results generally last four to six months, then another treatment is recommended to maintained a fresh rejuvenated look.
