Botox® (technically known as “Botulinum toxin type A”) is an injection that is able to smooth wrinkles caused by facial movements such as smiling or frowning. It is the most popular of the class of neuromodulators along with Dysport and Xeomin, all of which are available at Palisade Plastic Surgery. These injectable treatments work by blocking the muscular nerve signals, which weaken the muscles so they can’t contract to form wrinkles in the overlying skin. It is important to have a well informed sense of the anatomy and interplay of the facial muscles to render balanced youthful rejuvenation without distortions or asymmetries.
Treatments are a quick and pain-free process, with no downtime and anti-aging benefits lasting three to four months or even longer.
Our surgeons pride themselves on providing a comprehensive facial analysis on every patient seeking surgical or non-surgical facial rejuvenation, with customized treatment plans attuned to a patient’s anatomy and goals.
This may require incorporating ancillary procedures such as:
- Dermal Fillers
- Laser Resurfacing
- Chemical Peels
- Fat Grafting
