What is BOTOX?

Throughout life many experiences, emotions, hormonal eruptions, habits, diseases, and aging can dramatically affect the appearance of skin for women and men alike. Fortunately, effective choices can lessen the visible effects of aging and blemishing to restore an aesthetic image. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi offers BOTOX® wrinkle relaxers that can help improve your facial profile.

What are the benefits?

Fine lines and wrinkles can distract from our other features, in addition to making us appear older than we are. BOTOX is a trusted option for helping you get a more youthful, polished appearance. Although the outcomes are not forever, you can reap the benefits for a few months before wanting to consider a follow-up appointment. You may also receive extra advantages from BOTOX at SSK Plastic Surgery, like:

  • Quick treatment sessions: The BOTOX appointments normally last for as little as 10 minutes.
  • Very little rest or recovery: Thanks to its nonsurgical nature, you can be able to return to your day-to-day life after treatment.
  • Very little discomfort: BOTOX injections employ a very small needle, making procedures feel like a minor pinch of the skin.
  • Easy upkeep: Patients who wish to maintain their appearance semi-permanently should find that follow-up treatment appointments are short and feasible for day-to-day schedules.

Who is a Candidate for BOTOX?

Furrows and creases can form in your face from years of frowning, concentrating, squinting, smoking, or expressing everyday emotions. Smoking adversely affects the skin overall, especially in pursed lines around the mouth. Whatever your cause of visible aging, over time, your skin loses elasticity—it won’t bounce back to its original fullness and smoothness, leaving behind permanent lines and creases, even when your face is calm and your muscles aren’t moving. Skin tone and texture--especially of the face, neck, and hands--can be improved with remedies that produce tightening, filling, smoothing, or a combination.

What to expect during BOTOX

Although we can’t erase the habits, emotions, or other damage that created the crevices in your skin, BOTOX can be a great treatment option to temporarily diminish the varying degrees of lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face. Strategically-placed injection treatments are quick, usually without pain or side effects. An occasional patient experiences a little short-term tenderness, redness, bruising, or swelling that can be aided by a cold pack. Patients normally return immediately to their regular activities.

The addition of neurotoxin to the face and neck area is a useful adjunct to diminish lines and bands seen when making active facial expressions--helping us to keep you looking younger.

  • Botox Cosmetic® and Dysport® neurotoxins block the nerves from activating the muscles that cause undesirable wrinkles during facial expressions. Our knowledge of anatomy allows us to target those offending muscles, while preserving those muscles that help to keep you looking young. Full results usually show in about a week and last several months.
  • Other treatments such as dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Radiesse can also help to replace lost collagen and to “volumize” areas such as cheeks and hands that have lost fullness. They can also be used in conjunction with wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX and Dysport. The result can be a rejuvenated look that normally lasts from months to a couple of years (based on the area and product used). We are all unique in how we age and where we are most affected. Depending on your degree of damage, you may need more than one treatment and/or regular maintenance to furnish the most benefit.

Our goal is to restore a result that is more youthful yet so “natural appearing” that others won’t know you had anything done--they’ll just say you look refreshed and younger!


How many BOTOX injections will I need?

The number of BOTOX treatments given will differ according to personal goals and the depth and severity of your facial lines. Our staff at SSK Plastic Surgery can determine the appropriate number of injections according to your targeted aesthetic goals and whether you wish to treat the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To prolong your aesthetic outcomes, our team could recommend getting follow-up BOTOX injections about every 3 – 4 months.

Can I combine BOTOX with other aesthetic services?

BOTOX treatments often pair well with other nonsurgical services for women and men who prefer to address aging concerns. If you have deeper and more severe lines and wrinkles, we might talk with you about administering a dermal filler for your smoothest outcomes. To further improve a youthful, radiant glow, Dr. Kelishadi may provide additional complementary treatments, such as microneedling with PRP or facials.

Is there a variation among wrinkle reducers and fillers?

Even though wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, are used to decrease facial lines by temporarily freezing your muscle contractions, fillers are a separate category of cosmetic options that enhance facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking areas and soften static wrinkles. If you wish, Dr. Kelishadi may discuss with you whether or not you might benefit from a dermal filler to complement your BOTOX results.
