BOTOX® Cosmetic

If you are bothered by facial lines and wrinkles, consider treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic. In Guilford, CT, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Beth Collins offers BOTOX to women and men from New Haven, Madison, New London, and other nearby cities who desire a simple, noninvasive solution to many bothersome signs of aging. Dr. Collins is an Allergan National Trainer and instructs other physicians nationwide on the proper use of this injectable treatment.

Who Should Get BOTOX?

Those who experience wrinkles and lines in the following areas of the face should consider BOTOX:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Glabellar frown lines
  • Brow lines
  • Crow’s feet

BOTOX may also have additional therapeutic uses including treating muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and some migraines. In order to undergo BOTOX treatments, you should be a healthy nonsmoker between 18 and 65 years old.

Individuals who should not undergo BOTOX treatments are those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, allergic to botulinum toxin, as well as those with neuromuscular diseases.

What Does BOTOX Do?

BOTOX Cosmetic contains botulinum toxin, which works by preventing contraction of the muscle in which it is injected, causing overlying wrinkles to smooth out.

When the appropriate injection site has been chosen, it will be cleansed and prepared for treatment. Your plastic surgeon will carefully inject the appropriate amount of BOTOX Cosmetic into the treatment site. More than one injection may be necessary for an injection site to ensure the lines and wrinkles in the area adequately smooth out.

What to Expect After BOTOX

There is no downtime following a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment. However, your plastic surgeon will require that you remain upright for several hours after your treatment and also avoid alcohol during this time. We may also advise you to avoid vigorous exercise for at least 24 hours.

You may experience some side effects from your BOTOX treatment, including nausea, fatigue, flu-like symptoms, and redness at the injection site. These, however, are temporary and will subside.
