Botox 

 
Wrinkles, lines, Crow’s Feet, laugh lines, and furrows are all common names for natural creases where the muscles of the face move. Over time, these can become deeper and more noticeable. They may make you look sad, tired, angry or just old. Many facial changes associated with aging can be attributed to the underlying muscular hyperactivity. Botox Cosmetic is a very effective treatment for wrinkles of the face, especially for lines around the eyes (Crow’s Feet), between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the mouth. Botox Cosmetic can help relax the muscles of the face that cause these wrinkles. This leads to smoothing of the lines of the face and prevents them from deepening, leaving you looking younger and more refreshed. Botox Cosmetic can also be used to treat migraine headaches, and excessive sweating. To find out how Botox Cosmetic can help you to achieve your goals, make an appointment to see Dr. Alex Colque in Waukesha, Wisconsin today.

The results achieved by Botox Cosmetic can be provider dependent.  It does not cost more to have Botox treatment performed by a plastic surgeon.  It may even cost less. Achieving a balance between your dynamic wrinkles from hyperactive muscles while maintaining your natural facial animation is the ultimate goal of Botox treatment.   

Reasons for Considering Botox Treatment: 

  • Excessive wrinkles of the Face.
  • Wrinkles around the eyes (Crow's Feet).
  • Large wrinkles or furrows in your forehead.
  • Wrinkles around your nose (Bunny's Lines).
  • Frown lines or furrows between your eyebrows.
  • To treat Migraine headaches.
  • To treat excessive sweating.

Botox Procedure: 

Injection of Botox Cosmetic is a safe and very effective way to treat aging skin. The procedure involves injecting a small amount of Botox into the area of the wrinkle. The injections typically do not hurt and are tolerated very well. A varying number of units of Botox are used to achieve the desired effect. Typical doses for areas are 25 units for Crows feet, 12 units for between brows, 12 units for the forehead. The effects of Botox last about 3-6 months, after which time you may choose to repeat the procedure for continued treatment of facial wrinkles.

Recovery Process:

You can generally return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure. You should avoid heavy physical exercise, facial cosmetics or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours after the injection. It is also advisable to avoid rubbing or massaging the area of injection for 24 hours after the procedure. The effects of the procedure may take up to 5 days to become apparent, then you can enjoy your more youthful appearing face.
