BOTOX® is the Allergan brand name for the toxin manufactured from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox has been used by physicians for quite some time, and it continues to offer measurable solutions to a variety of patient concerns. At THE SPA at Cd'A Plastic Surgery, we use BOTOX® to reduce the visible signs of aging. Areas that are treated, typically, are the forehead, crow's feet around the eyes, and frown lines around the mouth.
BOTOX® works by interrupting the signals between facial nerves and muscles. This prevents the muscle from contracting, which allows wrinkles to appear softened and relaxed.
BOTOX® is administered by either Dr. Kuhlman-Wood, a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, or Annette Asper, DNP. BOTOX® is injected using a fine needle, and does not require anesthesia as most patients report very little discomfort. Although complications are rare, receiving BOTOX® does carry risk. The risks and necessary precautions will be discussed in detail prior to your treatment to reduce your chance of complications.*
