BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr Pearson was referred to me by a friend. I'll never go anywhere else for my cosmetic (Dysport, Restylane, Peels etc) needs. Dr Pearson is one of the most mindful, caring doctors that I’ve ever met. He takes time with me each and every visit to address all of my concerns and never makes me feel rushed. He is extremely knowledgeable and makes me feel at ease when I’m in his care. ... You can be assured that Dr Pearson always has your best interest in mind and it is his mission to make you look and feel your very best! - Chris (A non-surgical cosmetic patient of Dr. Pearson's)

Description
BOTOX® is a member of the 'wrinkle relaxer’ class of injectable facial treatments.

Wrinkle relaxers block the nerve impulses that enable the muscle contractions responsible for creating expression lines on the face. Wrinkle relaxers can smooth existing lines and may prevent expression lines from forming. With treatment over time, existing lines may disappear.

Treatment with BOTOX® can improve the appearance of existing wrinkles caused by facial expressions. Botox can also be used in a treatment called “facial shaping” to help improve asymmetry or other facial conditions that result from muscle action.

BOTOX® is FDA approved for injection in the glabella (the region between the eyebrows). BOTOX® is also commonly used to treat the forehead region, the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), either side of the mid-chin (to treat a down-turned mouth), and the neck (to treat neck bands).

The Aging Process
Over time, the action of certain facial muscles may contribute to the appearance of wrinkles, heaviness of the brow, and the appearance of fatigue, boredom or even anger. When those muscles are weakened, the unfavorable effects of those muscles are diminished.

Candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic
You may be a candidate for BOTOX® treatment if you are dissatisfied with facial wrinkles associated with facial muscle action, brow heaviness, the appearance of tiredness or fatigue or emotions that are inconsistent with your intent.

Complementary Procedures
Injectable dermal fillers may be used in conjunction with Botox to aid in improving facial volume loss and those wrinkles that are present at rest. Facial resurfacing procedures may also be considered to improve skin surface irregularities.

Recovery
Temporary redness resolves within minutes. Normal activities are resumed immediately. Instructions are given to avoid certain activities for 1 day.
