Botox® – Dr. Levine’s Philosophy
Botox® is a great tool to reduce the appearance of certain facial lines and wrinkles. Not all facial lines respond to Botox®. Additionally, too often the product is overused leading to an unnatural and frozen appearance. This is not what I aim to achieve. In fact, during our consultation, I may point out lines in your face that I think are flattering and harmonious with your appearance. If I do not think that Botox® will improve your appearance, I will not treat you.
Botox® is also a good tool to decrease sweating, known as hyperhyrdosis.
Is Botox® a good option for me?
Dr. Levine will review what you can expect from a Botox treatment.
What can I expect after treatment?
Botox® treatment is quick and should be relatively painless. It is very rare to have any bruising after a treatment. There are no exercise limitations after treatment.
How long will the results last?
Botox® treatments vary in how long they last depending on the part of the face or body treated. At a minimum, they should last 4 months, but many patients still have good results at 6 months and beyond.
