The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

A number of surgical modalities exist to treat wrinkles on the forehead and face including brow lift and face lift in Las Vegas. While these procedures are very effective, not every person with prominent wrinkles needs facial cosmetic surgery. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a strong neurotoxin produced by bacteria. When injected into a muscle it causes temporary paralysis of that specific muscle. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used for many years for the treatment of facial tics and other problems related to muscle spasm. It is approved by the FDA for these uses and has a long history of safety. It has been found that when BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes it is very effective in minimizing or eliminating these skin folds.
A candidate for BOTOX® is an individual with reasonably good skin tone who has wrinkles along the forehead and/or around the eyes. For individuals in their 20's, 30's, and older, BOTOX® Cosmetic can effectively postpone or eliminate the need for more aggressive modalities to treat wrinkles such as surgery or laser resurfacing.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Cambeiro will perform a focused physical examination and review your medical history including medications, prior plastic surgery, and daily skin care regimen.
He will discuss your facial lines with you in front of a mirror and determine the role of BOTOX® Cosmetic in their treatment. A key element of the exam is assuring that the wrinkles of concern are related to muscle activity. If this is not the case, Dr. Cambeiro may suggest other modalities of treatment including collagen injections, laser resurfacing or even surgery.
Photographs will be taken of you with your facial muscles relaxed and also with them stimulated, to accentuate the wrinkles of concern. You will be asked to sign a consent form for the surgical procedure.
