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 Dr. Levine aims to achieve. In fact, during your consultation, Dr. Levine may point out lines in your face that actually flattering and harmonious with your appearance. If Dr. Levine does not think that Botox® will improve your appearance, he 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.
