What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® is a protein placed specifically into the muscles of the forehead or crow’s feet around the eyes to selectively decrease muscle function and prevent the formation of wrinkling and deep lines. It can improve the appearance and decrease the prominence of existing frown lines, forehead furrows, or crow’s feet. Injections are usually repeated every 3 to 4 months to maintain results.
Why might I consider BOTOX® at the Bengtson Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan?
Looking younger and improving facial appearance often may be attained through non-surgical solutions such as using BOTOX® or in conjunction with facial surgery or other procedures and skin care. Eliminating crow’s feet and decreasing animation and frown lines can make you look less tired and angry, creating a fresher, brighter look. We strive to achieve natural-looking results that do not look “frozen” or overtreated.
Who chooses BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Age does not define candidates for facial rejuvenation. Women and men of various ages choose facial rejuvenation to delay or improve visible indications of facial aging. Millions of patients safely undergo BOTOX® Cosmetic every year in the United States alone.
The following factors generally define good candidates for BOTOX® at our Grand Rapids practice:
- You can clearly define why you want this treatment.
- You understand what the treatment can and cannot accomplish.
- You accept its risks and your responsibilities as a patient.
- You are healthy, emotionally secure, and stable.
- You accept that you will need to make healthy lifestyle choices to maintain the results achieved by this procedure.
- You have realistic expectations and are willing to accept minor asymmetries
What do I need to know?
- Results are not permanent and will need to be re-injected every 3 to 6 months to maintain optimal results.
- Common side effects are slight bruising and numbness, but both are minimal and quickly subside.
- You should understand that all cosmetic procedures carry the potential for risks, which will be fully discussed with you during your consultation.
