About BOTOX® Face Injections
(Including Dysport® / Xeomin®)
Botox® is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures for a reason: it works. Botox® face injections, as well as Dysport® and Xeomin®, reduce the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent lines and creases that develop over time in a number of areas on the face. Botox® can treat mild to severe frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, drooping corners of the mouth, lip lines and neck folds. Our patients also find Botox® very useful in alleviating sweating under their arms and in their hands.
When Botox® face injections are used in conjunction with Dermal Fillers, the effect is a non-surgical facelift, or “Liquid Facelift.” World-renowned Boston Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Leonard Miller has extensive experience and expertise in achieving beautiful, natural looking results with injectables by maintaining a less-is-more approach.
THE BOTOX® PROCEDURE
The administering of Botox® face injections in our practice is one simple, 10-minute treatment performed exclusively by Dr. Miller. Through tiny, carefully placed injections, he targets specific muscles in the treatment area for desired results. This causes a temporary relaxation of the muscles, leading to a reduction in the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines caused by muscle contraction. Over time, with continued treatment, the reappearance of these lines may also be reduced because of moderate weakening of muscles in the treated areas. Topical and/or injectable numbing options are available to patients upon request.
There is no recovery time with Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® face injections. Many of our patients have the treatment performed during their lunch hour. As with any injection, after treatment you may experience some slight redness at the injection site.
The results of Botox® face injections can be seen within a couple of days and can last for up to four months (individual results will vary). Many patients return to the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation for other services like dermal fillers, advanced laser treatments, and medical facials.
