Benefits of Botox

More and more these days, many non-surgeons are performing cosmetic procedures that are out of their area of specialty, in order to profit off of the popular cosmetic industry. However, cosmetic dentists, gynecologists, family practitioners, ENT’s and other non-plastic surgeons do not have training in treatment of the skin or of facial expressions. As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Bernacki is trained and skilled at treating patients’ skin and faces, for both medical and cosmetic purposes. Dr. Bernacki’s educational background, extensive training and years of experience allow him to help our patients look their best. We work hard to make sure that our patients walk out with a very natural looking, yet greatly improved appearance.

Botox® is a simple, 10 minute procedure involving just a few tiny injections directly into the facial muscles to get rid of unwelcome wrinkles. Botox® can be used for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead wrinkles, and wrinkles near the outer eye (crow’s feet).  The results of a Botox® treatment are usually visible within two to three days.  The effects of a single Botox® treatment generally last for a period of three to four months. Since the procedure is non-invasive and non-surgical with zero down time, Botox® is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments worldwide.

FAQ

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscle to temporarily improve the look of moderate wrinkles and frown lines for adults. It is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. It contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will inject the BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles in the face to temporarily reduce muscle activity. This will help reduce the lines that have been a result of frowning and squinting over the years.

Will this make me look like I’ve had work done?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression if you get this treatment done. It is important to talk to your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to talk about the results you would like to see.

Does the treatment hurt?

Since it is an injection, it has been reported that patients have felt a pinch. Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How long does the treatment take?

Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.

How long is the recovery time after the treatment?

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.
