BOTOX® Cosmetic is tremendously popular with our Philadelphia-area patients; quick, safe, and effective, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and laugh lines on the face as well as treat muscle spasms and excess sweating. If you would like to refresh your appearance, BOTOX® injections are an affordable and non-invasive alternative to more traditional cosmetic surgery procedures such as facelifts.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
An injectable that is placed below trouble areas of the skin, BOTOX® Cosmetic is made from botulinum toxin type A. Highly diluted from its pure state, the neurotoxin acts to temporarily paralyze the nerves responsible for superficial muscle control directly beneath the skin. Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is formulated specifically for aesthetic treatment and is strategically placed, it is extremely safe; there are no side effects and normal muscle control is unaffected. BOTOX® Cosmetic is considered so safe in fact, that the treatment is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for smoothing facial lines and alleviating muscle spasms.
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can be completed in just minutes, and is nearly pain-free. With a small needle, Dr. Paul Glat or one of our experienced medical professionals will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that control frown lines, laugh lines, furrows, or wrinkles. The placement of the injections will be determined during our initial consultation with you, to help ensure your aesthetic goals are met. The procedure does not require the use of anesthesia, typically lasts no more than 10 minutes, and requires no recovery time. Providing results that can last up to 6 months, patients often find they can receive treatments just once a year to maintain their appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Benefits
For men and women whose aesthetic goals can be met without the use of cosmetic surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a tremendous option, as it is a quick and affordable treatment that can have a dramatic impact on a person’s appearance. If you would like to undo years of aging, or you have conspicuous laugh lines or frown lines that you would like to deemphasize, BOTOX® injections may satisfy your wishes. With smoother skin, patients often experience improved self-confidence and self-esteem.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Candidates
The FDA has approved BOTOX® Cosmetic for individuals aged 18 to 65, and the treatment has been proven safe for a diverse range of candidates. If you have good general health and realistic expectations of the results that are possible through BOTOX® injections, you may be an ideal candidate. At the Philadelphia-area cosmetic surgery practice of Dr. Paul Glat, we are advocates for BOTOX® Cosmetic, as it is truly a treatment that can benefit nearly everyone.
