Botox® helps you look younger by softening the lines between your eyebrows and forehead. The treatments are also recommended for crow’s feet. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Larry C. Leverett, offers Botox® treatments for men and women who live in Ahwatukee, Chandler, Gilbert and the surrounding communities of Phoenix.
What is Botox®?
Wrinkles can affect your overall appearance and self-confidence. Those tiny fine lines deepen into wrinkles and eventually become creases. Botox® is an injectable cosmetic product that treats wrinkles and lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead. The injections even help with crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes. Botox® is specially designed to treat wrinkles that develop from years of contracting certain muscles when you make facial expressions. The botulinum toxin type A in Botox® is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles, relaxing the skin, which causes your lines and wrinkles to disappear.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of Botox® injections is based on the amount of product that is needed, and this is determined during your consultation appointment. Dr. Leverett offers financing through CareCredit® and Prosper Healthcare Lending. Our office also accepts Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, cash and cashier’s checks.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® treatments are preferred amongst men and women because of the injections:
- Restore a youthful appearance
- Are simple and fast
- Provide impressive results immediately
- Require no downtime
Good Candidates for Botox® Treatments
Dr. Leverett recommends Botox® treatments for men and women who have “dynamic wrinkles” that develop between the eyebrows, on the forehead and at the corners of the eyes. These wrinkles are unique because they are caused by the movement of muscles that are safely and temporarily paralyzed by Botox® injections.
What Can I Expect from My Botox® Treatments?
Botox® is an anti-aging treatment that is administered via injections with a fine needle. Dr. Leverett makes several injections in the muscles of the forehead, between the eyes and at the corners of the eyes. You see immediate improvement after just one treatment.
After the Botox® Treatment
In the days after your Botox® injections, the lines and wrinkles continue to soften. Full results may take four to six days. You may experience some minor tenderness around the injection sites for the first 24 to 48 hours. The amazing results of Botox® injections last up to six months. Dr. Leverett may recommend a follow-up treatment after four months so that the lines and wrinkles do not return.
You should feel confident about the way you look, and now you can eliminate the signs of aging around your eyes and on your forehead with Botox® injections.
