As we begin to age, the underlying tissue that keeps our skin smooth and youthful begins to break down. This is what results in wrinkles, laugh lines, smile lines, and crow’s feet. We use Botox® injections in order to enhance the appearance of your facial contours or minimize the appearance of lines and creases. There are many benefits to be had by receiving Botox® treatment. These include:

  • Restore the beauty, vitality and shape of your face without undergoing any surgery.
  • Get a makeover in just one visit.
  • Regain lost volume to sagging skin with our dermal fillers.

Dr. Hameedi has had fantastic success working with patients who were looking to minimize:

  • Frown Lines (Between eyebrows)
  • Crow’s Feet (Around the Eyes)

How Botox® Cosmetic Treatment Works

Botox CosmeticAt our medical practice, getting Botox® cosmetic is a simple physician administered treatment which involves the injection of purified protein into specific areas to temporarily smooth lines, wrinkles and furrows caused by excessive facial movement.

Dr. Hameedi will use a tiny micro-needle to inject a very small amount of botox into a specific area on your face. It’s quick and completely safe. We require no sedation or local anesthetic to perform the procedure.

The purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium works to reduce the activity within the muscles it’s injected into.  Once the treated muscle has been relaxed, the overlying skin is no longer being afflicted with stress. The end result would be your treated area looking far more smooth and youthful.

Your treatment should last on an average of three to five months. After this time period, the muscles in the treated areas will begin to function normally again. All that’s needed around this time period is a slight maintenance treatment.

Botox Treatment Cannot Be Performed on Pregnant or Breast Feeding Women

Occasionally, there are times where a booster treatment may need to be performed. This is recommended if you don’t see any results within two weeks. Our office will get in touch with you to schedule up a follow up appointment.

There are very little side effects from botox treatment. Generally, you may experience light bruising at the treatment area. This can be covered up easily with makeup. Our Doctor will go over any possible side effects with you during your consultation visit.
