Manhatten plastic surgeon, Dr. Kenneth O. Rothaus is happy to offer his patients BOTOX, one of the most common and most popular wrinkle treatment products on the market today. Manufactured under the name Botulinum Toxin Type A, BOTOX is a nonsurgical anti-aging skin rejuvenation procedure that treats facial wrinkles in the forehead region and around the eyes (Crow’s feet) without surgery. By temporarily relaxing the muscles residing under the skin, the surface appears smoother, softer and younger. Greater than 97% of the patients that come to our Manhattan and Westchester plastic surgery offices to receive BOTOX treatments return for additional treatment 3- 12 months later because they love it so much.
What To Expect
During the initial consultation, an assessment wil be made to determine the appropriate amount of BOTOX to be used. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. Most patients require anywhere between 25 and 50 units of the medication. During the treatment, the forehead will be marked with a washable pencil as a guide to where the injections will go. At Rothaus Plastic Surgery a very small 33 guage needle is used to minimize the discomfort. Discomfort is minimal and, although it is rarely needed, can be controlled with topicals and/or cold compression.
After their BOTOX treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. There will be some mild swelling and redness, but this is minimal and goes away within 3-4 hours. Exercise should be avoided and the head remain elevated for about 4 hours. Results following BOTOX are most apparent around day 5-7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
