Remove wrinkles without surgery—with BOTOX®
Wouldn’t you like to look great for your next party or vacation? With BOTOX, you can look younger and more relaxed quickly, and without surgery.
BOTOX is administered through injection, so it’s minimally invasive. You’ll have no recuperation downtime, and will be ready to go after just one office visit.
Is BOTOX Right For You?
BOTOX injections traditionally smooth “dynamic wrinkles” -- lines caused by years of facial movement. Recently though, studies have confirmed that BOTOX® is safe and effective when used to diminish other types of facial lines, too.
You might consider BOTOX if you have:
- Frown lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
- Forehead creases
- Crow's feet
- Neck bands
- Wrinkles underneath your lower eyelids
- Vertical creases above your upper lip (where lipstick may bleed)
- Wrinkles underneath your lower lip
- Dimpling of the chin
How is BOTOX Administered?
A BOTOX treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Dr. Koplin will administer a few tiny injections of BOTOX Cosmetic directly into the muscles. This relaxes the muscles, causing lines and wrinkles to diminish.
No anesthesia is required, and any discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Dr. Koplin may decide to numb the injection area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to your treatment.
Why get BOTOX from a plastic surgeon?
Many medical professionals are authorized to give Botox injections, however the skill of the practitioner is very important in achieving a natural effect. It’s best to go with a plastic surgeon such as Dr. Koplin who is trained in the use of BOTOX, and has a lot of experience administering the treatment.
The Consultation with Dr. Koplin -- Unique For You!
Dr. Koplin will personally meet with you to determine whether you are a good candidate for BOTOX treatment. He’ll discuss your goals for treatment, and may examine your ability to move certain facial muscles. He’ll also talk with you about what you can expect, and when to schedule your next appointment.
During this initial meeting, Dr. Koplin will ask you a number of questions about your lifestyle and health. Be sure to tell him about any past treatment with BOTOX therapy, injectable fillers, facial shaping, or other facial rejuvenation procedures. BOTOX may not be right for everyone including those with disease, allergies, asthma, swallowing or bleeding problems. Tell Dr. Koplin if you’ve recently had surgery or plan to have surgery soon.
BOTOX is not recommended for women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.
What to expect after a BOTOX treatment:
You’re ready to get back to your life—no downtime is needed! We’ll give you specific aftercare instructions.
You can apply makeup, as long as you’re careful not to apply pressure to the treatment area.
Botox takes effect more quickly and seems to work better if you “exercise” the muscles for ninety minutes following injection. This means that if we treated the frown lines between your eyes, performing this frown activity for an hour and a half after you leave the office will enhance your result. Just be careful who you frown at!
We ask our patients not to lie down for ninety minutes after your treatment. No one has ever been on their way home for a nap, and anyway you’ll be too busy frowning to sleep!
Onset of action for Botox is three to seven days. Be patient and you will be quickly surprised with a fabulous result later the same week! Results last on average from 3 to 4 months.
