Botox

Cataract & Eye Consultants of Michigan

Botox is one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures used today. A lifetime of facial expressions (repeated muscle contractions like frowning and squinting) can leave unwanted lines and furrows. We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic, as well as other similar neuromodulators (Dysport® and Xeomin®), to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The results can be seen within a few days to weeks and can last for up to 3-4months.

What is Botox:

Wrinkles are the result of repeated facial muscle contractions. Botox is a prescription drug that is injected into those specific muscles to cause temporary relaxation, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Common uses:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

Treatment:

Dr. Salter will inject specific muscles with Botox to temporarily reduce muscle activity. The treatment takes approximately 15-30 minutes to complete, and there is essentially no downtime or recovery. A very small needle is used, and the procedure is not usually painful. However, ice or topical anesthetic are available. You often see results within a few days of treatment, and results can last up to 3-4months. Dr. Salter will have you return 2-3weeks after your treatment for a follow-up appointment.
