More than 11 million women and men have had BOTOX® Cosmetic. And these numbers continue to increase.
This non-operative cosmetic injection is popular due to its great results and virtually no recovery time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic improves the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines located between your brows. As we age, these lines make us look tired, concerned, or even unhappy. BOTOX® Cosmetic can help address these facial areas.
In your initial consultation, one of Dr. Bolitho’s aesthetic nurses will determine if you are a Botox ® Cosmetic candidate. They will also review your overall medical history.
This office visit is a vital one because it’s your opportunity to be candid in where you can share your aesthetic goals and wishes for this cosmetic injection.
Your aesthetic nurse will have you contract certain muscles around the brow area and will assess the furrow between the brows in terms of size and location.
Photos will be taken for your medical file. They will automatically be downloaded to a state-of-the-art software program, TouchMD. The photographs will reflect the areas of potential cosmetic injection treatment and are then uploaded to a touch screen in your examining room. Your nurse will utilize this software to get more in depth information regarding your aesthetic wishes. They will then explain the process with this touch screen and discuss the latest techniques used to achieve the most desired aesthetic outcome.
The administering of BOTOX® Cosmetic is quick and simple. It takes under 15 minutes to perform. While no anesthesia is needed, your aesthetic nurse typically applies a lidocaine numbing cream on the areas of these injection sites to make the experience well-tolerable.
Your skilled nurse will administer very small injections directly into the muscles which impact the lines between your brows. Injections may also be in your forehead area to smooth out lines there, as well.
No recovery time is needed.
