Botox

Cosmetic Dermatology

Botox 

Shar-Pei puppies and summer linen suits should have wrinkles. You don't need them if they are more than "character lines" and make you appear angry or tired - especially if you're not.

Botox cosmetic is the safe and cost effective answer to taming those unwanted lines. It has many uses, the most common eliminating those two vertical lines over and between the eyes, the crow's feet (couldn't somebody have picked a more romantic bird to name them after?), and the deep wrinkles that life's problems have set into your forehead.

And for those who insist on "natural" treatments, Botox is perfect, being the product of living bacteria.

Botox is injected directly into the facial muscles that form the wrinkles. It prevents communication between the nerves and the muscles so that they can't contract as effectively which is what pulls the skin and creates the wrinkles. It generally lasts from four to six months and gently wears off.

Botox, like all cosmetic procedures, is both a science and an art. There is no "routine" amount or placement. You and Dr. Greenberg will discuss what you want and what can realistically be accomplished.

Our philosophy of using Botox is that of any cosmetic procedure we do - you looking refreshed and natural. Botox had a past negative reputation and was fodder for comedians when it first appeared on the market by practitioners going overboard and completely paralyzing patients' faces. We don't do that. You communicate by facial expressions. Softening them is okay. Eliminating your expressions is not.

Botox is priced by the "unit." We offer a free consultation. The number of units you want or need and the price will be discussed.

Botox is not without some annoying, but not dangerous side effects that will also be discussed at your consultation. The injections are not painful and look like small mosquito bites for only a few minutes. When you leave the office, there should be virtually no evidence of your treatment. Very infrequently, a small bruise can appear at an injection site. The only restrictions are no alcoholic beverages within the first 24 hours and no naps face down so that the material can set in place.

Occasionally we offer special pricing on Botox. Please check www.realself.com and our Facebook page regularly.
