Dr. Greenberg Can Renew Your Image With Botox
Produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, Botox is a natural, purified protein that works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles, causing the affected area to relax. Botox paralyzes the facial muscles that create wrinkles. This treatment can eliminate existing creases and prevent the development of new ones.
Dr. Greenberg will use an aesthetic cream to numb the treatment area. Then, he will make several tiny Botox injections into the specific muscles. The entire process takes about 30 minutes. Unwanted wrinkles and lines will start to disappear almost immediately.
What to Expect
After several days, frowning muscles can’t contract. Typically, patients notice a difference in how they look within five to ten days. Eventually, the paralyzed muscles regain their ability to move. The effects of Botox last for four to six months before you need to repeat the procedure.
Botox is a non-surgical procedure that Dr. Greenberg can perform in the office, which reduces the risks associated with going under the knife. When you choose Botox, you will need regular injections to maintain the desired results. You may experience side effects such as redness, numbness, bruising, swelling and pain, but these usually disappear after a few days.
Making an Educated Choice
If you are between the ages of 30 and 60 and feel unhappy about the visible loss of skin elasticity in your face, you may want to think about facial fillers or Botox. Before performing any injections, Dr. Greenberg will meet with you to discuss your goals and make sure you are a good candidate for these kinds of cosmetic enhancements. Pregnant or nursing mothers should not consider these procedures.
