Botox Cosmetic

When those first lines and wrinkles begin to form on the face, it can be a shock. We look in the mirror, and suddenly, we see the years catching up. In the early days of cosmetic procedures, the only solution was plastic surgery. Luckily, today, we have non-surgical alternatives like Botox Cosmetic that are non-invasive and natural-looking when your doctor is skilled like Dr. Small.

What exactly is Botox Cosmetic? It’s an injection of a purified protein that relaxes the muscle activity that causes certain types of wrinkles. These wrinkles include forehead creases, crow’s feet, and “frown lines” – the “11” between the eyebrows. They’re the types of wrinkles that are caused by repeated facial expressions, and Botox weakens these muscles to improve your appearance.

Dr. Small will evaluate the muscles of your face and determine the correct placement and dosage of Botox to provide a flawless result.

The formula used in Botox Cosmetic has been used medically for many years to treat muscle spasms, as well as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

The Botox Cosmetic Procedure

Dr. Small uses a fine needle to inject the Botox in the treatment areas. The injections themselves will only take a few minutes.

Recovering from Botox Injections

One of the best things about Botox is that you don’t need to take any time off from work at all. In fact, some people call it a lunchtime treatment because you can go right back to work afterward.

Some people do experience some minor effects, however, such as a little bit of swelling and bruising. You might feel slightly tender at the injection sites, too, but all of these effects should be gone within a few days. If you do have any discoloration, you can cover it with makeup right away.

Botox lasts approximately three to four months, and maintenance treatments are needed 3-4 times a year for the best anti-aging effects.

Complementary Procedures with Botox

Some wrinkles are not caused by muscle activity; instead, they’re caused by a loss of volume in the face. For those types of wrinkles, dermal fillers such as Juvederm Ultra, Ultra + and Voluma can be used for a kind of non-surgical liquid facelift. Fat grafting can also be used to restore lost volume to the face. Many people get both Botox and fillers for a comprehensive treatment of their wrinkles.

What Real Patients Say

  • "Thank you for being such a terrific surgeon and doing such a great job with my surgery... I waited a while before I spent the money on myself... putting it off because of the expense or not being sure how I felt about the surgery, but also because I didn't want to have to justify spending money on myself, it's so vain and pretentious but it's not. You can't put a price on how different I feel now... It's life changing. If people don't thank you enough they should."

    - N.S.
  • "I just wanted to thank you for making my first experience with surgery a comfortable and pleasant one. I can not thank you enough. You are an amazing doctor but an amazing person who cares greatly for his patients... You did an absolutely phenomenal job. I could not have asked for a better surgeon and I am so happy that I chose you."
