Today, Botox is practically a household name, recognized because of its popularity, results, celebrity use, and affordability. Developed in 1989, the injectable treatment was subjected to numerous clinical trials and, in 2002, was the first injectable prescription approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for temporary improvement of frown lines. Botox is now approved for cosmetic treatment in nearly 80 counties.
Facial lines and wrinkles are a natural aspect of physical aging. Stress, lifestyle choices, and environmental factors can also cause the appearance of premature aging. Frown lines, which are also called glabellar lines, are formed through repetitive muscle movements, like frowning, because the skin loses elasticity as it ages. Patients often feel that wrinkles and visible lines make them look tired and older than their age.
Botox treatment is precisely delivered into targeted areas with a small injector. As the injection releases the Botox, the muscle movement responsible for frown lines is reduced, causing the skin to smooth. The procedure takes approximately 10 minutes with visible improvement within 24 to 48 hours. While patient results vary, the effect of treatment typically lasts about four months.
Dr. Panagotacos, a board-certified dermatologist, believes that our patients deserve the highest quality cosmetic treatment in a professional practice. After a comprehensive facial analysis and medical consultation, our doctors will recommend a personalized plan of care to meet each patient’s unique needs and expectations. Botox treatment may be recommended by itself of in combination with dermal fillers such as Restylane or Radiesse for optimal facial rejuvenation and balance.
