Dr. Louis Mes Plastic Surgery
The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic stops your facial muscles from contracting, thereby relaxing wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to diminish lines and wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes.
To be a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic, you should be at least 18 years old, have mild to moderate wrinkles, be free from skin infection, not be pregnant or breastfeeding, and have no allergies to the toxin (botulinum).
At your appointment, Dr. Mes will inject the formula with a thin needle. BOTOX® injection appointments typically take less than 20 minutes, and the effects last up to four months. After treatment, patients may experience some bruising and swelling, but these should fade within a few hours or days.
