Botox® is a safe, effective, FDA approved treatment to temporarily soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Patients looking to rejuvenate certain facial features and lines of expression may be a good candidate for Botox Cosmetic®. Dr. Pinski is one of the top injectors in the United States with over 30 years of injectable experience. Dr. Pinski is also an advisor to the Allergan Corporation (the manufacturer of Botox) and he customizes each treatment to meet your personal needs and skin care goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of fine lines and wrinkles—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider can inject certain muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will then notice a visible softening of your fine lines and wrinkles.
You may begin to notice improvement of moderate to severe expression lines within 72 hours, with full results at 2 weeks. BOTOX® Cosmetic typically lasts 3-6 months in most patients.
As one of Chicago’s top Botox dermatology practices, Dr. Pinski will help you achieve a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles will begin to soften, and excessive facial contractions will be prevented to give the appearance younger skin. Full results should be visible at 2 weeks after treatment.
The procedure is very quick and easy. Prior to each Botox injection in Dr. Pinski’s Chicago area offices, an ice pack is used to alleviate any discomfort. There is no downtime after the treatment, but patients may experience slight redness around the injection site. We recommend patients should not use alcohol, Aspirin, or Vitamin E five days prior to their treatment to help minimize any chance of bruising.
*You should not receive Botox if you are allergic to eggs, or if you have an infection, swelling, or muscle weakness in the area where the medicine will be injected. Tell your doctor if you have ever had a side effect after receiving any injectable in the past. Your provider will ask in-depth questions concerning your medical history to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Botox® helps with reducing excess muscle contractions which helps to soften lines and prevent the “etching” in of lines. However, some areas may have hollowing or volume loss. In this case, fillers are great in combination with Botox to help restore volume to common areas like the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, under eyes, and the lips. Treatments to help the epidermis and general skin health such as Dermasweeps, chemical peels, laser resurfacing and a customized topical regimen will help accentuate the injectable treatment. The combination of multiple skin therapies can effectively treat a wide array of signs of aging.
