What is Botox? You may have heard this on TV or from a friend who has had the treatment performed. Botox is a medical treatment used for the deep wrinkles or creases that develop in our skin as we age. The most common areas treated are the forehead creases, frown lines between the eyebrows and the crow’s feet that form around our eyes. The medication is injected beneath the skin in key areas around the wrinkles/creases. After the procedure, you will notice progressive smoothing of the skin of the areas treated. The effects of Botox last somewhere between 6 months to a year.
Patients should consider all aspects of having Botox injections. They wonder about recovery, the cost, and if they are the right candidate. The team here at J Hopkins Plastic Surgery will tell you here and now that we have your best interest in mind, so whether or not you’re the right candidate, we’ll inform you. If you’re worried about the risks of Botox injections, don’t worry; our key goal is your knowledge.
The best candidates for Botox injections are the ones who are relatively healthy and don’t mind some minor discomfort during the procedure. If you have any questions about the injections, we’re happy to answer any of them, so you can feel more confident walking into the procedure room.
