BOTOX

Do fine lines and wrinkles have you looking older than you feel? 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and effective way to get rid of stubborn signs of aging and regain your confidence.

Dr. Arnold Lee can expertly inject BOTOX at his Boston, MA, office to minimize wrinkles quickly and safely.

What Is BOTOX?

/

BOTOX is a safe, injectable form of botulinum toxin that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyelids, mouth, forehead, and neck. Although it cannot provide the same degree of rejuvenation as cosmetic surgery, many find that the results of BOTOX help them look younger and feel more confidence.

How Does BOTOX Work?

Wrinkles are formed by the constant movement of our facial muscles. By injecting the botulinum toxin into predetermined areas of your face and neck, your doctor can temporarily paralyze specific facial muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and preventing new ones from forming. Dr. Lee can carefully plan your treatment to achieve the rejuvenation you desire.

What BOTOX Can Correct

Botulinum toxin has both cosmetic and medical applications:

Crows' Feet

These are the creases around the corners of your eyelids. BOTOX can reduce the appearance of these lines, effectively rejuvenating your eyes.

Frown Lines

This can refer to the long creases on your forehead or the deep creases between your eyebrows (the "11's). Targeted BOTOX injections can relax the muscles that cause frown lines. 

Lip Lines

Fine lines around the mouth can have a great impact on the way you look. BOTOX can effectively reduce those fine lines and prevent future wrinkles.

Medical Applications

BOTOX has also been approved by the FDA to treat medical conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), chronic migraines, eye spasms, lazy eye, and other muscle-related conditions. Because the botulinum toxin relaxes those targeted muscles, BOTOX can reduce the symptoms of these disorders and help the sufferer live more comfortably.

Am I a Good Candidate For BOTOX?

Botulinum toxin injections are a great option for almost anyone struggling to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. However, there are a few things that can affect your candidacy:

Age

The FDA has approved BOTOX for anyone between the ages of 18 and 65. However, for best results, most doctors recommend beginning BOTOX treatment in your late 20's or early 30's.

Skin Health 

Your skin has to be in good health with no injuries or infections before receiving botulinum toxin treatment. While there are few side effects of BOTOX, fighting a skin infection can increase the risks. If you have pronounced skin laxity, BOTOX may not be a viable way to achieve your goals. In these cases, Dr. Lee can help you explore cosmetic surgery options.

Allergies

It is important to tell your doctor about any allergies before receiving BOTOX injections, even if you don't think your allergies would be affected by the injectable. We will also review your medical history.

Pregnancy

Doctors recommend that you do not receive BOTOX while you are pregnant or nursing. 

Overall Health

You should be in overall good physical health before receiving botulinum toxin treatment. Being in good health reduces your risk of any side effects post-treatment.

Expectations

There is no miracle solution to stop your natural aging process. While BOTOX is effective at reducing fine lines and wrinkles, you should still have realistic expectations of your results and know the best results come from continued treatment.

BOTOX Procedure What to Expect

The entire treatment takes under 10 minutes.

Preparing for Your Treatment

In the days leading up to your injections, you should avoid alcohol, tobacco, and anti-inflammatory drugs as these can increase your risk of swelling, bleeding, and bruising.

Numbing the Injection Site

Your doctor may apply a topical anesthetic to numb the injection site. However, the needle used is so fine most patients feel no pain or just a slight pinch.

Injections

Your doctor will inject the botulinum toxin into the predetermined injection sites to target your areas of concern.

Results

Immediately following your injections, you are free to return to work or your daily activities, with very few restrictions. Your final results will become apparent in about two weeks.

Follow Dr. Lee's
Aftercare Instructions
To Reduce Your
Risk of Side Effects

/

It is important to follow your doctor's aftercare instructions so the toxin stays in place and does not migrate outside the injection site. This can cause muscle paralysis or weakness outside of the injection site, trouble speaking or swallowing, and more serious side effects. Call Dr. Lee immediately if you are experiencing any of these symptoms after treatment.

BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are the three main brands of botulinum toxin injections. All three are FDA-approved to use as an anti-wrinkle treatment. BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin use the same botulinum toxin, so the results and duration of the effects are similar. Our Boston, MA, office uses BOTOX because it has been in use the longest and provides consistently pleasing results when administered by a qualified professional.
