Many women and men who are unhappy with the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face may find BOTOX® Cosmetic to be an excellent solution. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment can be administered to relax targeted muscles underneath the skin that are responsible for wrinkling, effectively releasing tension and smoothing the surface of the skin. At our practice, Dr. Daniel Y. Maman and Dr. Stafford R. Broumand can utilize BOTOX® Cosmetic to help you achieve a more youthful, revitalized facial appearance with natural-looking results.
What Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Do for Me?
Depending on your unique aesthetic concerns, BOTOX® injections may be able to help minimize:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead wrinkles
- Vertical creases between the eyebrows
- Frown lines
As an added benefit, BOTOX® Cosmetic can often be used in conjunction with treatments such as facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery, and various other injectables to achieve a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a common component of our board-certified plastic surgeons’ Revived Liquid Facelift—a customized blend of aesthetic injectables and dermal fillers designed to diminish the appearance of numerous signs of facial aging without the need for incisions, surgery, and/or extended downtime.

The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
During treatment, the BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is injected into targeted areas using a special Dermasculpt® Microcannula. Consisting of a ultra-fine, hollow instrument and diamond-tip needle, the Dermasculpt® Microcannula typically enables BOTOX® injections to be performed with minimal discomfort, often eliminating the need for any topical anesthesia while significantly diminishing the potential for bruising and/or downtime. The entire treatment process generally takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes, depending on the number of concerns being addressed. In fact, BOTOX® injections can be performed so quickly that many individuals choose to receive treatment on their lunchbreak.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Recovery
Following the BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure, some minor bruising and/or swelling may occur, but these symptoms should subside relatively quickly and are often limited as a result of our doctors’ meticulous approach. The majority of individuals are able to resume work and/or normal daily routines immediately, though certain strenuous activities may need to be avoided initially. The rejuvenative effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic generally last approximately three to four months, and occasional touch-up treatments can be received to help maintain an optimal outcome.
