What is Botox?
BOTOX®, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are product names for botulinum toxin which is injected for reduction of facial muscle activity. Botox is often used in combination with tissue fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, to achieve cosmetic enhancement of facial shape and some degree of facial rejuvenation.
From Beverly Hills to Minneapolis and New York, people are undergoing Botox® Cosmetic treatments to remove unsightly forehead lines and wrinkles.
How Can Botox Help Me?
BOTOX® and Dysport® are derived from a specific form of bacteria. These injections were originally utilized as a remedy for neck and facial spasms. Later on, they have been used effectively for cosmetic reasons. BOTOX® and Dysport® are an extremely efficient approach to softening or removing the natural wrinkles between the eyes (frown lines), on the forehead, at the sides of the eyes (“crow’s feet”), at the base of the nose, around the lips, etc.
What Can I Expect After Botox?
They are injected through a very small needle into the muscles of the face to stop nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. This causes these muscles to relax, which makes wrinkles gradually disappear. The results last three to six months and, at times, longer.
Why Should I Choose Dr. Fodor For My Botox Injections?
Dr. Fodor has extensive experience using BOTOX® Cosmetic not only for cosmetic reasons but to treat headaches (including migraines) and excessive sweating of the armpits and palms.
Injectable treatments are a wonderful tool in treating cosmetic patients but, like any tool, they can be misused. Inadequately trained practitioners from varied backgrounds are often responsible for the substandard results that all of us have seen, many times on well-known celebrities who appear virtually expressionless from BOTOX®, sporting “over plumped” lips and “mask-like” face from overzealous use of fillers. These kinds of results are entirely avoidable.
Dr. Fodor practices meticulous technique with careful control of the location and depth of the injections, based on an intimate knowledge of anatomy gained in no small measure from his experience in endoscopic facial rejuvenation.
How Much Do Botox Injections Cost?
The cost for Botox injections will vary depending on the severity of your case and techniques used for treatment. At your consultation, Dr. Fodor will be happy to discuss your options and cost based on your needs.
