The way BOTOX works is surprisingly simple. It is made with a purified protein that, when injected into a targeted facial muscle, blocks the nerve impulses to that muscle. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the skin lies smooth, reducing the appearance of wrinkles.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
Results appear in several days and will last about 3 months. You can maintain and improve upon the longevity of your results with regularly scheduled maintenance treatments.
Wrinkle Reduction with BOTOX
BOTOX Cosmetic reduces the appearance of wrinkles between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes that are caused by repeated movement of facial muscles over time. These include:
These are the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows that can etch a permanent frowning expression on your face. Dr. Mabrie uses BOTOX and Dysport to relax the 3 strong muscles that cause these glabellar lines.
When you elevate your brows, the skin on your forehead folds like an accordion. This can etch deep horizontal lines across your forehead, making you look older. Dr. Mabrie treats forehead wrinkles with a conservative approach, since misuse of BOTOX in these muscles can cause the eyebrows to sag.
Most people are familiar with crow's feet — those branch-like lines at the outer corners of the eye. They are caused by repeated smiling and squinting, and are a hallmark of an aging face. BOTOX injections are a popular and effective choice for smoothing out this area, and some women start treatment in their late 20s or early 30s.Request Your Consultation
Brow Lift with BOTOX
Many people are unaware that BOTOX can be used to create a subtle yet noticeable brow lift without surgery. Dr. Mabrie specializes in this "chemical brow lift" that can open up the eye area for women and men whose brows have begun to sag.
"I Love That I Can’t Frown!"
BOTOX is a procedure that brings many men and women through the door of a cosmetic surgery office. What they may discover during their consultation is that most people who are candidates for BOTOX could also benefit from dermal fillers. Dr. Mabrie specializes exclusively in plastic surgery of the face, and brings a fresh new perspective to non-surgical options. He can recommend an injectable treatment for your specific goals.
Many people discover that dermal fillers are better suited for their needs. While BOTOX can only improve wrinkles caused by movement of facial muscles, dermal fillers can improve a wider variety of wrinkles and creases, such as nasolabial folds (parentheses), smile lines, and lip lines. In addition to wrinkle reduction, dermal fillers may also be used for gentle facial sculpting. They can add volume to features such as the nose, cheeks and lips. They can also fill in the area beneath the eyes, reducing dark circles.
Of course, BOTOX and dermal fillers are only as effective as the injector performing the procedure. Dr. Mabrie is an artist and a skilled technician when it comes to these treatments. His focus on the face has led to a remarkable understanding of facial skin and structure, an understanding that helps him achieve exceptional results.
