“ASK OUR EXPERT” – “Does Botox Really Help With Lines & Wrinkles?”

Monday, March 11th, 2013

QUESTION:  Roxanne, does Botox really help with lines and wrinkles? Is it safe?  Where can it be used?

ROXANNE:  Personally, I love it! It’s the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure for a reason.  It works!  Dog may be man’s best friend but Botox Cosmetic® is definitely mine.  🙂    I find that the biggest downside with Botox is that once you experience life with it, you won’t want to go without it!

Botox Cosmetic® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles of the upper face that create expression lines.  This results in a temporary loss of facial lines and wrinkles for about 3 to 6 months.  It is a very cost effective anti-aging treatment and doesn’t require any down time. Botox can make remarkable improvements to the aging face.

Botox Cosmetic® has more than a 20 year track record for safety and effectiveness.  Botox is very safe WHEN injected by a specially trained clinician such as in the office of a plastic surgeon, cosmetic dermatologist, cosmetic surgeon, or facial plastic surgeon.   Botox is a medical treatment and should only be performed in a medical facility.  Please, for your own safety, avoid all temptations to attend a “Botox Party” at your local salon or girlfriend’s home.  If you receive one of these invitations, burn it and never look back!

At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Center, the most commonly treated area is the glabella.  This is where the vertical lines appear between the brows creating an angry appearance. We often treat forehead lines and lines around the eyes commonly referred to as crow’s feet as well.  Dr. Castillo uses a very specialized technique to actually raise the eye brows.  This technique opens up the eyes and gives that well rested, alert look many of his patients are looking for.  It’s almost like an instant eye lift!  For those who’s skin is  showing signs of years of sun worshiping, even more results can be achieved when you combine Botox Cosmetic® with other non-invasive treatments like CO2 Micro-Fractional Laser Resurfacing or Intense Pulsed Light.

 

Yours Truly,

Roxanne Hammond
