Boston Plastic Surgeon Answers Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX Cosmetic

Leonard B. Miller, MD Provides Answers to Common Inquiries Regarding the Treatment and Results of Botox Injections for Facial Rejuvenation

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2015) - "BOTOX® Cosmetic can be an excellent treatment option for individuals interested in non-surgically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face," states Dr. Leonard B. Miller, a board certified plastic surgeon in Boston. As one of the most popular cosmetic enhancement options available at his practice, he says patients often have a number of similar inquiries regarding various aspects of the injectable treatment. Some of the top frequently asked questions about BOTOX® Cosmetic include:

  • What signs of aging can be treated?
  • How long does the treatment take?
  • Do the injections hurt?
  • Are there side effects or downtime after treatment?
  • How quickly do results appear?
  • How long do results last?

According to Dr. Miller, one of the many benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic is its ability to effectively diminish the appearance of frown lines and crow's feet, as well as lines and wrinkles on the forehead, brow, and corners of the mouth. Depending on the number of areas being addressed, he notes that the injections generally take about 30 minutes to administer. "In fact," he adds, "many patients receive BOTOX® Cosmetic on their lunchbreak."

Any discomfort that may be experienced during treatment is described by most patients as mild, Dr. Miller explains. Though some bruising and/or swelling can occur in the targeted areas, he says side effects typically resolve quickly and can often be concealed with makeup if necessary. The majority of individuals are able to resume their normal daily activities immediately after leaving the office.

Regarding results, Dr. Miller notes that the initial effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic generally begin appearing within a few days of treatment, and the injectable's final outcomes are typically apparent after about one to two weeks, lasting an average of approximately four months. In order to maintain optimal results, he recommends receiving regular touch-up treatments.

Ultimately, the Boston plastic surgeon says BOTOX® injections can be ideal for people who do not need and/or desire a more extensive facial rejuvenation procedure - such as a facelift or browlift - to achieve their cosmetic goals.
