Botox

Botox injections are the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the US and continue to grow in popularity. All Botox injections at Eyelid & Facial Consultants are given by Drs. Worley and Hariri. This is in contrast to many other practices and medical spas in which personnel such as nurse practitioners or technicians give the injections. At Eyelid & Facial Consultants we feel that you deserve the very best results which can only be achieved by having your injections perfomed by a physician.

Botox is a purified protein that relaxes muscles by blocking nerve impulses. Tiny doses are injected under the skin to eliminate wrinkles and expression lines. Areas treated with Botox include the forehead, frown lines, crow’s feet, lips, chin, and neck bands. Many patients get Botox injections over the lunch hour and return to work with no sign of having been treated. The combination of topical anesthetic and a tiny needle makes Botox injections a painless experience that requires no recovery. It takes Botox 3 days to relax the wrinkles and the effect last 3-6 months.

Botox is also used to treat patients with spasms of the eyelids, face, and neck. In addition, it has proven very useful in treating excess sweating of the hands, feet and armpits as well as an excellent treatment for Migraine and Stress headaches. Many insurance companies are even beginning to participate in payment for Botox to treat headaches that are resistant to conventional therapy.
