Botox Cosmetic is a purified version of a natural protein, Clostridium botulinum. Administered in very small doses, it can relax and smooth deep furrows and lines in the face. Dr. Salloum performs all patient injectables himself. No two patients are treated the same as the location and amount of botox needs to be determined based on the patients aging process as well as muscle movements. During your consultation Dr. Salloum will perform an in-depth consultation to create a esthetic plan that would give the best possible outcomes.
How does Botox work?
Botox Cosmetic works by reducing muscle contractions in the treated area, causing even deep lines and forehead furrows to become smoother and less prominent. Botox is administered as a series of small subcutaneous injections in the forehead area. In most cases, no anesthetic is required, although the area may be numbed with an icepack or a topical anesthetic if you are particularly sensitive. In some cases, patients may feel a slight tingling or soreness in the area, for a short time. In most cases it will take 5 to 7 days for the BOTOX to take effect.
*All patients are unique and individual results may vary.
