What is Botox?
“Dynamic” facial wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle contraction. Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as “Botox,” is a purified protein that temporarily interrupts muscular action, causing relaxation and weakness of the muscle.
Botox has been FDA-approved since 2002 for cosmetic use in treating facial lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections into specific facial muscles have achieved success and popularity as a non-invasive, safe, effective, and simple procedure to create a more overall rejuvenated appearance and smooth out:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Forehead furrows
- Lip lines
Why choose ENT?
Who will inject my Botox?
At The Ear, Nose, Throat & Plastic Surgery Associates, we believe that our intimate knowledge of complex facial anatomy and musculature is critical to successful results with Botox and cosmetic injections.
Our providers’ extensive experience in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery allows our practice to offer the best quality of care.
Dr. Jeffrey Lehman, Dr. Hao “Mimi” Tran, and Rebecca Korman, PA-C, have been trained and certified for cosmetic Botox injection by the American Academy of Facial Aesthetics. Unlike most medical spas or walk-in facilities, our office has its very own, experienced allergy department equipped with the latest equipment, supplies, and staff capable of assisting in any potential allergic reaction.
What is a Botox treatment like?
Both your consultation and your injection treatment can be completed on the same day.
Your provider will first discuss with you your desired goals for treatment. Patient treatment is always individualized after assessment of their unique facial muscles.
Once your goals and treatment areas have been identified, specific sites will be marked for injection. You and your provider will determine together the approximate number of units to use. Tiny needles are used to administer the Botox into each site. Most people experience minimal discomfort from the injection or even none at all; therefore anesthetic is not required.
Once complete, cool packs can be used to minimize any swelling or redness. Usually, any signs of injection will resolve within 10-15 minutes. The entire process usually takes less than 30 minutes for a new patient. For returning patients receiving injections, the visit takes around 15 minutes. A two-week follow-up appointment is recommended to review your results. At that time, additional units of Botox could be added for enhancement if needed.
