Dr Samer Bassilios Habre offers his patients Botulinum toxin treatments, which are the most common and most popular wrinkle treatments today. Manufactured under many names, Botulinum toxin is a nonsurgical anti-aging skin rejuvenation procedure that treats facial wrinkles in the forehead region, and around the eyes (Crow’s feet) without surgery. By temporarily relaxing the muscles residing under the skin, the surface appears smoother, softer and younger. Patients that come to our clinic to receive Botulinum toxin treatments come back often because they love their results so much.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
During the initial consultation, the forehead, and eyes will be assessed so that the appropriate amount of Botulinum toxin can be determined. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine syringe. Discomfort is minimal, but it is controlled with cold compression.
After their Botulinum toxin treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. Results following Botulinum toxin are most apparent around day 5-7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
GET YOUR FACIAL GLOW BACK!
Botulinum toxin is a fantastic way to look softer and younger without surgery. Men and women who wish to decrease facial wrinkles and lines may be candidates for this treatment. Results will last for 6 months, and sometimes longer for many of our patients.
FILLERS VS. BOTOX?
Injectable fillers help to decrease wrinkles by adding volume to smooth the skin’s surface. Botulinum toxins (Botox, Dysport) offer a result that looks and acts similar, but with a different approach. These treatments use a neurotoxic agent injected into the skin to temporarily freeze overactive muscles causing wrinkles. When the muscles relax, the visible wrinkles on the outer layer of the skin relax and soften, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance.
