Botox®

"The idea is for the patient to look like themselves. I help patients recapture their youth."

- Sergio Vendetti, MD, DMD

Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crows feet, worry lines, and laugh lines can all be things of the past, thanks to Botox. Referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines, these are all treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting Botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.

Before Treatment

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to treatment. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes will be made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.

The areas that will be treated are marked; often digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement that will occur after treatment.

The Botox® Cosmetic Procedure

Botox® Cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia, because there is very little discomfort. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience such dramatic results. Botox® Cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.

Post-Procedure Information

After the operation, patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects may involve temporary weakness of nearby muscles, or, in rare cases, an eyelid may droop. Botox® Cosmetic is completely reversible, so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
