BOTOX® Cosmetic Can Reduce Forehead Wrinkles for a Much Younger Look
Smooth, wrinkle-free skin can help you look years younger. While facial plastic surgery can achieve truly stunning effects, it is not your only option. Dr. Anya Kishinevsky proudly offers BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at her Darien, CT, practice. This injectable treatment can rejuvenate your appearance by reducing the wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. BOTOX® Cosmetic combats the signs of aging by reducing muscle movements in the treatment area. In this way, it can stop the repeated motions that cause creases in your skin. Dr. Kishinevsky works with an experienced in-house aesthetician and knows the most effective ways to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic with minimal discomfort. She can also preserve most of your facial movements so that you have a full range of expressions and a natural look.
Are You a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic may be a good option if you are looking to improve:
- Horizontal wrinkles in your forehead
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines or other wrinkles between your eyebrows
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the treatment for patients between the ages of 18 and 65, although you will enjoy best results if you still have some degree of skin elasticity. In addition, you should have healthy skin with no infections, related allergies, or nerve problems in the treatment area. You should also have a sound immune system, and you should not be pregnant or nursing.
Of course, in some cases, plastic surgery may be a better option. If you have significantly drooping skin, you may be a better candidate for a facelift or related procedure.
What to Expect when You Receive a BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment
Before administering BOTOX® Cosmetic, our aesthetician will determine exactly where to place the injections. With her attention to detail, she can achieve more precise and subtle results. Then she will use a very fine needle to inject the drug. Because the treatment is so precise, you will not typically require any anesthesia. However, if you have sensitive skin, your practitioner can numb the treatment area. The injections contain botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks nerve signals. When administered in small doses, it poses little to no risks. Instead, it will simply prevent certain facial motions that commonly cause wrinkles. The treatment will typically take less than 10 minutes, and you can return to work or your other activities immediately following the injections.

The Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic can dramatically reduce facial wrinkles within a few days. After treatment, you may appear more refreshed, happier, and younger. Results can last up to four months, and we can provide regular touch-ups if desired. BOTOX® Cosmetic can provide dramatic results, but the treatment is very conservative. While surgery involves several weeks of healing and recovery, BOTOX® Cosmetic requires no downtime. Typically, you will experience only slight skin sensitivity after treatment. Usually, this discomfort will be so mild that you will not need any medication. We also offer several other injectable treatments to improve wrinkles and lost volume. Dr. Kishinevsky or her aesthetician can keep you informed about all of your options so that you can select the treatment that is right for you.
