Botox is the commonest procedure done by plastic surgeon the world over.
Botox is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein that works by relaxing the muscles of expression, which cause these dynamic wrinkles giving a more youthful and rested appearance. It takes minutes to do and it enjoys a very safe profile.
The effect of the injection is by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contraction and lasts for several months. When the injections are done regularly the effects last longer. In the younger patients, the use of Botox prevents these wrinkles from getting deeper.
The commonest sites injected are the frown lines (between the brows), the forehead and the so called “crows feet” wrinkles on the sides of the eyes.
The injections are done exclusively by Dr. Schwarz who has used the product for over a decade. Their net effect is to restore a rested, youthful and natural look without a change in ones expression.
