Dr. Frieden is now offering Botox injections to reduce wrinkle lines around the eyes and between the eyebrows.

What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a highly refined and purified protein, produced and manufactured by Allergan. FDA approved, the protein is subsequently injected into targeted muscles, which relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines to form. The actual toxin or live bacteria is never injected, so the risk of a botulism infection will not occur. Treatments are quick and simple, involve no down time, have minimal discomfort, and are non-surgical.

What is the treatment like?
Each treatment session will usually last 15 minutes. The process consists of a few injections into the targeted muscle(s). There is no recovery time. You can even do it during your lunch break. You may resume most normal activity immediately after the procedure.

Prior to treatment
Stop taking fish oils, ibuprofen/Advil/Motrin 2 weeks before your appointment. This will limit swelling and bruising.

How does BOTOX work?
The BOTOX protein injected into the targeted muscle will block the nerve from signaling the specific muscle to contract. Preventing contractions of the muscles means no movement of the over-lying skin, resulting in fewer wrinkles. Your healthcare provider will know how much BOTOX is needed to treat you effectively. Also, if you are concerned with side effects or complications associated with long term use, don’t be. Muscles that are injected still remain in fine working order, even after years and years of treatment. In other words, if you have been treated with Botox for years and one day you decide not to continue with treatments, your muscles will resume normal functioning.

What will I look like after my injection?
The majority of patients will have a few red dots in the areas that have been injected. These marks typically take 15 minutes to go away. After that, there is no sign that you have had an injection. If you develop a small bruise, it can be concealed with make-up and will usually resolve in 24-48 hours.

What are my restrictions after the injection?
You should be upright (not lying down) for 2-4 hours after your treatment. Due to the mechanism of action of BOTOX, it is recommended that certain activities are restricted for 2 hours following injection, such as getting a facial or massage, drinking alcoholic beverages, flying, exercising and straining.
