PROCEDIMIENTOS DE BOTOX

Las inyecciones de BOTOX® son muy populares entre los pacientes de nuestro cirujano plástico de Nueva York, Nueva York, el Dr. George Lefkovits, para el tratamiento de ciertas arrugas faciales, que incluyen:

  • Líneas de expresión
  • Pliegues de la frente
  • Patas de gallo

La forma cosmética de la toxina botulínica, a menudo denominada por su nombre de producto BOTOX, es una inyección no quirúrgica popular que reduce o elimina temporalmente las líneas faciales cerca de los ojos, la boca y la frente. Se sabe que BOTOX también reduce las bandas gruesas en el cuello.

Ventajas de los procedimientos BOTOX

  • BOTOX es un tratamiento no quirúrgico para las arrugas.
  • El tratamiento es a través de inyecciones con una aguja muy fina.
  • Son relativamente indoloras.
  • El efecto es dramático.
  • El efecto es reversible.
  • No se requiere anestesia.

Después de las inyecciones de BOTOX, puede volver a trabajar de inmediato. Es importante no acostarse durante al menos cuatro horas después de las inyecciones. Además, se sugiere que intente contraer los músculos afectados con la mayor frecuencia posible durante las primeras horas, ya que esto aumentará la absorción de la toxina por parte de los músculos y maximizará su efecto.

Results

The results of a BOTOX injection are usually noticed within 3 to 10 days. They tend to last in most people for up to three or four months. As time passes, the muscle activity will gradually return to normal. This injection tends to last well into the third or fourth month, as opposed to many other temporary cosmetic procedures.

Results can vary, but it is important to go to a physician who is experienced with this procedure. Dr. Lefkovits performs the procedure daily in our New York, New York, cosmetic surgery office.

Botox Procedure Side Effects

It is natural to assume there is some danger with BOTOX injections since the product is derived from a toxin, but it is very safe and has been around for years. Some patients have been known to experience side effects from the injection, including:

  • Bruising at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Respiratory infection
  • Temporary eyelid droop (less than 1% reported)
  • Nausea
  • Flu-like illness

Botox Risks

The potential risks are minor with this procedure. If you are allergic to eggs, it is very important not to use this material, as it is prepared with an albumin base.
