Botox Cosmetic

Why see an Ophthalmologist for Botox Cosmetic treatments? 

 Botox was originally developed by an Ophthalmologist and has been used in the field of ophthalmology since the 1980's. Following treatments for blepharospasm and strabismus, ophthalmologists noted that forehead and eyebrow lines were reduced in those patients receiving Botox. This led to further research, which confirmed the effectiveness and safety of the Botox for use in improving wrinkles due to overactive muscles of the face.  In spring 2002, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of Botox "to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows", and since then, over a million people have been treated with Botox Cosmetic.  Ophthalmologists have a unique understanding of the eyelids, brows and orbit. Knowledge of the anatomy of the eye is key to achieving the best results when using Botox Cosmetic.  

In our office, Dr. Denny uses Botox Cosmetic to treat the wrinkles in the forehead, brow area and crow's feet around the eyes. With Botox Cosmetic, you can achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance without the bruising, swelling and downtime of invasive cosmetic surgery. You'll be amazed to see what Botox Cosmetic can do to rejuvenate your appearance! 

Botox injection, accomplished in a matter of minutes, can restore the youthful appearance of your face. While the results vary according to your unique physiology, typically results are seen within 4-7 days and can last up to 4 months. Plus, unlike cosmetic surgery, Botox Cosmetic is safe and virtually non-invasive.  Side effects are very rare and there is no recovery time.
