The miracle wrinkle remover and skin firming substance, Botox has been on the cosmetic market for years. In addition to Botox there are alternatives such as Dysport and Xeomin. These products are a protein substance that is derived from botulism. It is injected subcutaneously or just under the skin with an extremely small needle and will give the recipient a more smooth and less wrinkled look. Over the years botulism injections have become very popular with doctors and their patients alike. The number one reason is because it is a non-invasive procedure, with no down time. It takes anywhere from 3-14 days to see the full effect of these products. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are safe, and the solution is sterile. Dr. Patel’s approach to correction is to keep it as natural as possible without overdoing it.
To keep the cost of these products affordable we run specials and promotions every few months, along with offering both the Brilliant Distinctions and Aspire programs. Results will usually last for three to six months.
Researchers have found that Botox has been successful in treating conditions other then wrinkles, such as, excessive underarm perspiration, neck pain, TMJ, and migraine headaches.
This treatment should not be done if the patient has certain medical conditions such as myasthenia gravis, ALS, or Lambert Eaton syndrome. Injectable treatments should not be done on anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
