Botox®

Botox® (Botulinum Toxin), Dysport and Xeomin, are all facial injectables used in non surgical cosmetic treatments to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the face by weakening the muscles it is injected into.   They can be used to effectively reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead creases, and brow lines.  Botox® can also be used to treat excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, by injecting into the sweat glands of the armpits, feet or hands.

Dr Shortt will go over the areas of concern you have and discuss your desired goals. He will take the time to explain the pros and cons of using Botox and share his philosophy on how to obtain a refreshed, yet still natural appearance.

When to consider having this procedure?

The desire for a more youthful appearance often leads patients to inquire about facial rejuvenation with the use of facial fillers or Botox®. These patients are generally aged 25 - 70+ years, and may have one or more of the following characteristics:

  • desire to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • reduce the appearance of crow’s feet around the eyes
  • diminish frown lines, forehead creases and brow lines
  • self conscious due to excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis

What is the recovery time?

There is very little downtime with Botox®, Dysport® and Xeomin®.  Other than a little redness for a few hours, on occasion a small bruise may be noticeable.  These treatments do not work immediately but you will start to see it take effect in 3-5 days.  It reaches it maximum effect around 2 weeks and will last several months.
