To help our Fairfield eye care patients accentuate their natural beauty and combat nagging sign of facial aging, we offer non-surgical treatments.
Botox Cosmetic is a facial injectable that is used to soften moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, lip lines and neckband creases for up to six months. Botox is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, a low-dose toxin that disrupts the release of a certain chemical in the face that triggers muscle contractions resulting in facial wrinkles.
Botox is administered via an injection directly into the wrinkle-causing muscles. The procedure is generally completed within 15 to 30 minutes. An ice pack or topical anesthetic is used for maximum patient comfort.
Botox does not require any downtime. Mild swelling at the injection site is common and subsides quickly. Botox results are fully obvious within one week and can last anywhere from three to six months.
