As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in the Boston area, and as a National Education Faculty Member in the artistry of BOTOX, BOTOX patients and doctors often come to me with questions regarding the most effective uses for this popular treatment. Here are the two most common reasons patients turn to BOTOX:
Protecting What Nature Gave Us
BOTOX is a great solution to diminish the appearance of forehead creases, crow’s feet and other fine lines around the mouth and eyes, and in the right hands, it is perfectly safe. Patients who may not be ready for a surgical procedure often find that this quick treatment is the perfect answer for restoring a youthful facial appearance and also preventing the formation of wrinkles long term. While some patients choose to combine surgical options with the non-surgical ones, many people find that BOTOX is the only treatment needed to achieve and maintain their cosmetic goals of a youthful, natural and harmonious appearance.
Complementing Surgical Procedures
BOTOX is also an effective way to protect the results of facial plastic surgery procedures. While surgical procedures address more noticeable signs of aging, BOTOX can help to create a more comprehensive result. Patients often combine BOTOX with surgical procedures such as
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
- Brow lift
These effective procedures can renew the spirited, joyful appearance of your youth. You can think of BOTOX as a periodic maintenance regimen to ensure your continued enjoyment of your results and prevent further aging.
