BOTOX® Cosmetic is used to treat lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. These lines are a result of repetitive facial movements over time. Hypertrophy of underlying muscles and loss of collagen in the skin results in wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin type A is an injectable treatment that is used to temporarily relax the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smooth, refreshed appearance.
Men who are looking to subtly refresh their appearance without undergoing invasive surgery are ideal candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic. All candidates must be healthy and have realistic expectations of their results. It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hotchandani to discuss your aesthetic goals and find out if this injectable treatment is right for you.

- Recovery and Results
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick treatment designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This substance works beneath the surface, as it is injected into the skin to immobilize the muscles around the eyes and on the forehead. During your consultation, you will be able to discuss with Dr. Hotchandani the appropriate amount of units needed for your desired appearance.
Recovery and Results
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and simple treatment and does not require any downtime. Redness, bruising, and swelling may occur at the treatment site, but those side effects should subside over time. It is recommended that any strenuous activities be avoided for at least 24 hours, but patients may go back to their regular routine immediately after. It can take up to two weeks for maximum results to become apparent, and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections typically last between three and six months.
