Cosmetic Surgery in Houston, Texas
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, BOTOX® treatments have become the most popular way to rejuvenate the aging face. Millions of men and women look younger and more refreshed thanks to the amazing effects of BOTOX®.
BOTOX® is useful in the treatment of:
- Creases in the forehead
- Frown lines between the eyes
- Smile lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Lip lines
- Vertical neck bands
Dr. Ciaravino also uses BOTOX® to raise the outer eyebrows, creating the beautiful shape seen on models. Many young patients in their 20s and 30s are undergoing BOTOX® treatments for this desired effect. They also use it as a preventative measure to stop wrinkles before they occur.
How It Works
BOTOX® is made from sterile Botulinum Toxin A, which prevents the contraction of muscles. In a simple office procedure a small amount of BOTOX® is injected into the muscle immediately beneath the wrinkle. Over the next few days the muscle becomes weaker and the overlying skin relaxes. This causes the wrinkle to soften and become less noticeable. In some cases the wrinkle completely disappears.
There is little discomfort and anesthesia is not required. Side effects are minimal, but may include minor redness at the injection site. There is no downtime and you may resume your normal daily life immediately after the treatment, though we advise refraining from exercise for a few hours.
Look younger and more beautiful.
