What to Expect
Results of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments will be evident within 2-3 days of your treatment. The appearance of your unwanted lines will fade and improve over time; maximum results are seen in about 2 weeks. Results last three to six months after a single procedure, and overactive muscle activity will eventually return causing lines to gradually revert to their pretreated appearance. If you do not continue receiving BOTOX®, treatment areas will eventually look the way they did before treatment. Client satisfaction has been very high at Hotchandani Laser, Vein, and Cosmetic Surgery, and we continue to perform the most BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in the area.
How Does it Work?
The procedure consists of injections of very small doses of botulinum toxin type A, which is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world, into chosen facial muscles resulting in the blockage of chemical signals that cause unwanted muscle contraction. Treatment is simple and smoothens the deep, persistent lines that develop over time. It generally remains only in the treated muscle and gradually disappears without breaking down or traveling throughout the body.
A BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure usually takes less than 20 minutes. The only facial expression you will eliminate is the unintentional wrinkles caused by the overactive muscles. The injections are very quick without much discomfort
You may return to normal activities immediately after BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures.
Will I be able to make facial expressions – what if certain expressions are extremely important for me?
You will still be able to express yourself, but without the wrinkles and creases. We have successfully treated many professionals whose most subtle expressions are extremely important for them at work. The expertise of your injector can make a difference, with potential side effects including a temporary eyelid droop, which is extremely rare. Hotchandani Laser, Vein and Cosmetic Surgery is one of the most experienced providers in the Green Bay and Appleton WI area having achieved Allergan’s (trusted makers of BOTOX® Cosmetic) Platinum level since 2006.
Are BOTOX® Cosmetic injections painful?
Most patients feel minimal discomfort during the procedure itself. Use of cold air at Hotchandani Laser, Vein and Cosmetic Surgery minimizes any discomfort.
What is the recovery time I should expect?
You may resume all normal activities immediately, though should refrain from strenuous exercise for a day. If you think you are having any unusual symptoms, do not hesitate to contact us.
Have patients been happy with their results?
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular physician administered cosmetic procedure in the US since 2001. In a survey conducted by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation, 97% of respondents said they were satisfied with the results of their BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment (79% of which said “Yes, definitely”).
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic safe?
BOTOX® Cosmetic remains one of the most widely studied medications in history. The FDA cleared BOTOX® for use in cosmetic procedures in the US in 2002, FDA approved for hyperhydrosis in 2004, and in 2010 it was approved for severe chronic headaches and additional clinical studies are underway to expand approved indications. The most common side effects are a temporary eyelid droop and nausea albeit very rare. We have some of the most experienced injectors and while we do not particularly enjoy revising other less experienced practitioner’s work due to the added complexity, we have fixed “spock eye” and other affectionately named expressions. That said, you are in safe hands at Hotchandani Laser, Vein and Cosmetic Surgery Center. So book your appointment for BOTOX at our Appleton or Green Bay locations today!
