The lunchtime procedure
BOTOX injections are the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. 4.2 million BOTOX cosmetic injections were given last year. It is known as a lunchtime procedure, because the injection itself takes about ten minutes and you should be able to go about your day afterwards. Results should appear within one to two days and last three to six months. Patients may return for a follow-up injection after the first one has worn off. Many patients have found that the results seem to last up to several months longer after several treatments.
It isn’t meant for all wrinkles. Lines and wrinkles on the lower face, such as smile lines that appear around the nose and lip area, should be treated by injectable fillers such as RADIESSE, a natural calcium compound suspended in gel which can be injected into the face or hands and lasts up to two years. Two other fillers are Restylane and Perlane, which can be used to enhance the lips. Find a cosmetic surgeon who can consult with you and examine your face and hands to determine which one is right for you.
