Botox is a nonsurgical injectable treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles. This popular neuromodulator relaxes wrinkles to create smoother, more youthful skin. As an experienced aesthetic specialist, Dr. Hasan is an expert Botox injector. He has an advanced understanding of facial anatomy that allows him to deliver beautiful, natural-looking results.
Botox is a neuromodulator that interferes with the nerves which control muscle movement. Once injected, Botox prevents the muscle from contracting and allows the skin on top to soften. The treatment can minimize the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevent fine lines from growing deeper.
Botox treats dynamic wrinkles. Also called expression lines, dynamic wrinkles develop from repeated muscle movement. These wrinkles include:
As a neuromodulator, Botox can also help slim the jawline and minimize symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. It also treats chronic migraines, headaches, and excessive sweating.
Neuromodulators don’t treat static wrinkles, which result from volume loss. Static wrinkles, like nasolabial folds, tend to form in the lower portion of your face. Dr. Hasan typically recommends dermal fillers to treat these types of wrinkles.
Botox injections are fast and relatively painless compared to surgical alternatives. Dr. Hasan tailors your treatment to address any facial asymmetries or imbalances. His injection technique is gentle, intuitive, and highly effective at minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.
Most Botox injections take only a few minutes. You can expect minor swelling and bruising at the injection site, but these side effects should subside within a few hours. It takes about 1-2 weeks for Botox results to appear.
Botox results typically fade within 3-6 months, but you can return to Dr. Hasan for maintenance treatments. He may also recommend combining your treatment with other minimally invasive procedures, such as dermal fillers or radiofrequency skin tightening.
The practice also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. PRP is a substance found in your blood that contains healing growth factors. When applied to your skin or injected beneath its surface, PRP therapy can tighten your skin and repair damage. Dr. Hasan customizes your plan to address your unique skin concerns.
