Do you want to reverse the effects of aging but are not ready to undergo surgery? Botox may be the solution you need to restore a youthful, wrinkle-free appearance without the time commitment, risks and recovery that come with a surgical procedure. Sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime treatment,” Botox has been the preferred choice for millions of men and women who want to erase years of aging and restore a youthful and smooth facial appearance. Treatment with Botox can be completed in as little as 15 minutes and is virtually painless.
Although Botox is a quick and straightforward treatment, beautiful and natural-looking results require the precision, skill and experience of a qualified provider. At Foglietti Fostyk Plastic Surgery, Drs. Mark A. Foglietti and Alanna Foglietti Fostyk have performed thousands of Botox treatments. They possess the training and skill that is required to deliver consistently excellent results. Whether you are looking for a subtle tweak or a more noticeable enhancement, Botox with our board certified plastic surgeons can help.
Am I a Candidate for Botox?
Botox is designed to minimize the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are a result of repeated facial expressions, like frowning and smiling. Treatment with Botox can be used to address the following:
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles and lines around the outer corners of the eyes)
- Forehead furrows (deep creases or lines that form horizontally across the forehead)
- Frown lines (lines that form between the eyebrows)
- Vertical lip lines
- Neck bands
Botox is not considered to be an effective treatment option for static wrinkles, which are wrinkles resulting from the aging process or sun damage. It can be performed as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation or skin procedures to produce more comprehensive results. Prior to treatment, our team will meet with you to determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for Botox, as well as to discuss your cosmetic needs and goals.
Treatment with Botox can be conveniently completed in our Cleveland office in as little as 15 minutes. A thin needle will be used to inject Botox into the targeted muscles. The botulinum toxin solution works to block the nerve signals responsible for muscle movement. With the muscles no longer being able to contract, the overlying wrinkles smooth out, the result of which is softer and younger-looking skin.
There is no downtime with Botox, meaning you will be able to return to work and resume all regular activities right after treatment. Temporary discomfort, including swelling and redness, is normal and should subside after a few days after treatment. Our team will give you instructions to follow before and after your treatment session.
Results with Botox last two to four months. Repeat sessions are needed to maintain your younger-looking appearance.
