No matter what your age, if your frown, forehead furrows, crows feet, or laugh lines linger long after a facial expression is made, BOTOX ® Cosmetic can be an effective, nonsurgical solution. Dr. Vessely has extensive experience with BOTOX® Cosmetic, having treated thousands of patients in the Portland area since 2001. As a head and neck surgeon, she is adept at treating even complex areas, including lip lines, neck bands, masseter muscles and lip depressors.
BOTOX® Cosmetic acts as nerve impulse blocker, which prevents muscles from contracting. The muscles that cause wrinkles are relaxed and new lines are prevented from forming. BOTOX® Cosmetic procedures are simple and safe. After treatment, the overlying skin is more smooth while your untreated facial muscles continue to contract normally. BOTOX® Cosmetic takes full effect in seven to 10 days and lasts approximately three to four months. BOTOX® has been used for decades to treat a variety of medical conditions. In fact, it was recently approved for treatment of excessive underarm perspiration (and can last up to nine months for this indication).
