Dr. Khoury offers BOTOX® Cosmetic injections as a means to eliminate deep wrinkles such as frown lines, brow furrows, crow's feet, and neck creases. To provide additional aesthetic improvement, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are often performed in conjunction with a facial cosmetic surgery procedure, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, a neuromuscular toxin. In its diluted state, it is an effective, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment, and it works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to appear on facial skin.
A quick way to improve one's appearance, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments require very little preparation or recovery time. Once the patient has consulted with Dr. Khoury regarding which areas should be treated, the BOTOX® Cosmetic injection procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Results generally last three to six months, depending on the patient.
Although treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections is now considered to be a brief and routine "lunchtime" procedure, it is in your best interest to receive treatment from a board-certified cosmetic surgeon experienced in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. Khoury can administer BOTOX® Cosmetic in the privacy and comfort of his Office Surgery Center.
