Botox® Cosmetic

Anyone who wishes to look more refreshed, relaxed and youthful may benefit from Botox® Cosmetic.

Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable, non-surgical treatment that temporarily relaxes targeted muscles of the face which are responsible for forming wrinkles. Some of the most commonly treated areas on the face include the following:

  • Forehead Wrinkles (horizontal lines on the forehead which are accentuated when one raises the eyebrows)
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles found at the outer corner of the eyes which form when you squint)
  • Glabellar wrinkles (wrinkles between the eyebrows which form when you frown)
  • Lip wrinkles (vertical wrinkles found on the upper & lower lips especially among smokers)

Botox has been used clinically for over 25 years and has been found to be efficacious with a very high safety ceiling. Botox has numerous other medical uses including the treatment of Migraines, Achalasia, Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis), Dystonia, Blepharospasm etc..

Administered as a few tiny injections of purified protein into the target muscle, this minimally invasive treatment is simple, quick and delivers dramatic results with minimal discomfort. The procedure is done at the office and can be performed without any anesthesia. After a Botox treatment, some results can be seen in as early as 3-5 days and the effects last an average of 3 to 4 months.

The most common side effects include bruising, swelling, and redness. Allergic reactions may also be possible, however, these are extremely rare.

The cost of treatment varies depending on the number of units of Botox used. The more areas on the face that are to be treated, the greater the amount of Botox needed.

Be wary of ads that advertise very low per unit charges for Botox®. Make sure you are getting Botox® Cosmetic and not some cheaper alternative drug. An inexperienced injector may inject Botox incorrectly, thus, using more Botox than is needed to achieve the desired result. As a consequence, you may end up paying just as much if not more.

Be wary of inferior products being marketed as “Botox”. Botox® Cosmetic is a proprietary drug manufactured and distributed by Allergan and it is the market leader in this category.

Botox injections are performed by Dr. Sian himself, not by nurses or physician assistants.
