Botox® Injections

BotoxBotox represents an important component of the rejuvenation program of the face. As a purified protein, Botox relaxes specific hyperactive facial muscles allowing for bothersome lines and wrinkles to disappear. For Botox to be applied successfully, the physician must have a thorough understanding of the anatomy and aesthetics of the face.

If used judiciously, Botox can safely help maintain a youthful appearance and reverse a tired or aged appearance. Botox injections last from 3 to 6 months depending on the specific region treated and the patient’s situation. However, Botox has a greater effect in certain areas of the face and may not be right for everyone. Other non-surgical or surgical procedures may be of added benefit or they may even provide a superior outcome.

In addition to a comprehensive skin care program, these procedures include injectable soft tissue fillers (i.e., Restylane, Radiance, Cosmoderm), Collagen Induction Therapy or skin resurfacing techniques (such as laser surgery, dermabrasion, and chemical peels).

Dr. Fechner recommends a selective and conservative approach to non-surgical rejuvenation in order to achieve maximal benefit. This will be discussed during the private consultation with Dr. Fechner.
