The Classic Choice for Smoothing Wrinkles

Dr. Grossman and her team have years of experience performing cosmetic procedures, including BOTOX® injections. They can help you determine if BOTOX® is right for you and create a customized treatment plan to achieve your desired results. With their expertise and attention to detail, you can feel confident that you're in good hands.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a brand name for a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A. It is a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum.

When injected into the muscles, BOTOX® blocks the signals sent from the nerves to the muscles. This causes the muscles to relax, which can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The effects typically last for several months, after which the treatment can be repeated.

Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX?

Most generally healthy adults experiencing the signs of facial aging can benefit from the injectable. Here are some factors to consider when determining if BOTOX® is right for you:

  • Treatment is typically recommended for individuals between the ages of 18 and 65
  • If you have medical conditions such as myasthenia gravis or take medications like aminoglycoside antibiotics, you may not be a suitable candidate for BOTOX®
  • BOTOX® is most effective on fine lines and wrinkles, so if you have deep wrinkles, you may need a more invasive procedure to see the results you desire

The Benefits of BOTOX®

BOTOX® gives you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Some of its many benefits include the following:

  • Reducing the appearance of crow's feet
  • Smoothing out frown lines
  • Softening forehead wrinkles
  • Lifting the eyebrows
  • Reducing the appearance of neck bands

Additionally, BOTOX® is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in a short amount of time. The results typically last for several months, and no downtime is required. This makes it convenient for those who want to improve their appearance without surgery.

How is BOTOX® Administered?

BOTOX® is administered through a series of injections into the muscles causing wrinkles or fine lines. The procedure is quick and typically takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Dr. Grossman will first clean the area to be treated and then use a fine needle to inject small amounts of BOTOX® into the targeted muscles. The number of injections required will depend on the size and location of the treatment area.

BOTOX® Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Grossman will assess your medical history and examine the areas you want to treat with BOTOX®. It's important to inform her of any medications you are taking and any medical conditions you have. This will help her determine if BOTOX® is safe for you to use.

Dr. Grossman will also discuss the benefits and risks of BOTOX® during the consultation and what you can expect during and after the procedure. It's essential to ask any questions and be honest about your expectations and concerns. If Dr. Grossman feels that BOTOX® is not your best option, she may recommend alternative treatments.

Results and Recovery from BOTOX®

After receiving BOTOX® injections, you should start to see results within 24 to 48 hours. However, it may take up to two weeks to see the full effects. The results of BOTOX® typically last three to four months, after which you may need to schedule another appointment.

During recovery, it is important to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area, as this can cause the BOTOX® to spread to unintended muscles. You should also avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours after the procedure. It is expected to experience some mild side effects after receiving BOTOX®, such as redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These typically subside within a few days.


Recovery After BOTOX: 

After receiving BOTOX injections, the recovery is typically swift and uncomplicated. Patients can usually resume their regular activities immediately, with minimal downtime. While some may experience minor bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site, these side effects generally subside within a few days. It's advisable to avoid vigorous exercise and massaging the treated area for the first 24 hours to optimize results and reduce the risk of complications. 

Results After BOTOX injections: 

Patients can expect to see noticeable improvements in their wrinkles and fine lines within a few days of treatment, with the full effects becoming apparent within about one to two weeks. The results of BOTOX injections typically last between three to six months, at which point additional treatments may be recommended to maintain the desired appearance.
