Botox® is perhaps the simplest and most popular of all injections. The board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mune Gowda uses Botox® to remove or soften the frown lines between your eyes, the crow’s feet around your eyes, and anywhere muscle activity causes wrinkle lines on your face.
Wrinkles and creases are formed when the muscles beneath delicate skin around the eyes, nose, and mouth contract over and over. Botox® can be used to relax the muscles. Dr. Gowda uses a very small needle to inject Botox® directly into the muscle that is causing the wrinkle. Essentially, Botox® keeps the muscle from contracting by impeding the nerve impulse. Gradually, the muscle relaxes, causing the facial wrinkles to soften or lessen.
Ours patients generally experience minimal discomfort during the treatment. This sensation lasts from five to seven seconds. The entire treatments takes 10 or 15 minutes and you can get back to your day as soon as it’s over. Botox® injections last for about three to five months. Sometimes, a course of treatments will lengthen the amount of time that Botox® is effective. Some patients have found that they can see the results for as long as eight months.
Board certified plastic surgeons use Restylane™ to restore fullness to the skin and lips. Restylane™ is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that can be used to fill more superficial wrinkles and folds (such as those around the mouth and below the eyes).
