Botox in Montgomery County

Botox is a substance that blocks neurons, the type of cell that makes up our nervous system, from sending signals to each other. By injecting tiny controlled amounts of Botox into a targeted area, the substance prevents muscles from contracting and further producing aging lines and wrinkles. Botox and other related products are safe and effective tools that allow us to prevent the signs of aging before they become permanent.

Overview

Neuromodulator treatments are designed to put your muscles in “time-out.” As we express and move our facial muscles, lines are created in the skin, and you may look angry or tired while your muscles are working overtime. When injected directly into the targeted muscle, a neuromodulator will cause it to relax. While you are still able to make expressions and look natural, the muscles are not able to make the movements that contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment is quick, very comfortable, and leaves patients looking and feeling brighter and more youthful.

101 - What to Expect

What to Expect

  • Clean skin is injected with small amounts of neuromodulator into the areas of excessive motion, such as the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes.
  • You can expect minimal downtime following this treatment and you should be able to return to work or your daily activities immediately. It is important to note that whenever a needle is placed in the skin there is always a risk of a bruise, though we take all possible precautions to prevent this.
  • Following treatment, you will be asked to use the muscle regularly for the next hour to help the product bind more quickly.
  • Botox does not work instantly! You will feel the muscles start to respond over the next few days, but you will not see the final results for two weeks!
  • Two weeks after treatment, a board-certified dermatologist will evaluate your results and tweak them as needed.
101 - PRE-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Pre-Treatment Instructions

  • Patients prone to bruising are encouraged to take precautions such as avoiding blood thinners. Adding an arnica supplementation prior to treatment may be recommended.
  • No other preparation is required.

Overview of Botox at Springhouse Dermatology & Aesthetics

Botox works by temporarily relaxing muscles of expression. We inject tiny amounts into the targeted muscles to prevent them from contracting and producing “lines of motion”. Ultimately by keeping these muscles relaxed, these lines never have a chance to become permanent.

Candidates for Botox in Philadelphia

As this procedure is meant to address age-related wrinkles and fine lines from forming, our patients tend to be men and women in their 30’s and 40’s who want to maintain a more youthful or refreshed look before permanent age lines set in. Botox in Montgomery County is commonly used to minimize lines and wrinkles in the following areas:

  • Eyebrow
  • Forehead
  • Upper eyelids
  • Lip area
  • Neck
  • Jowls

Dr. Weishar evaluates each patient’s anatomy to decide the appropriate dose of medication that will achieve the best result. Each patient has different needs so the number of units and the location of the injection sites are customized to optimize individual treatment plans. The ability to do this stems from years of experience and advanced training only available to board-certified dermatologists.

Risks Associated With Botox

Side effects of Botox in Philadelphia are typically minimal and short-lived. However, some of the most common ones include:

  • Headaches
  • Bruises
  • Soreness
  • Swelling

Dr. Weishar books a second consultation with each of her patients after two weeks. This allows her to make minor adjustments if deemed necessary.

Results and Recovery

Injections are non-invasive, so patients can expect to return to their normal daily activities immediately following their appointment. In some cases, a topical anesthetic will be applied prior to the injection but this is usually unnecessary.
