About BOTOX

To age gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Bloomfield Plastic Surgery in West Bloomfield, MI is proud to offer BOTOX to interested individuals in our area.

This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to wrinkles and lines, which are made from expressive movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines may or may not disappear as the face relaxes. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of some facial muscles. To soften these wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Julio Sosa between the eyebrows, on the area known as the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable. In addition, if you are older with sagging skin and widespread wrinkles, you may be considered for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is longer-lasting. Bloomfield Plastic Surgery offers eyelid surgeries, facelifts, and brow lifts as great options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX treatments are done as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit us in West Bloomfield, MI for BOTOX, we typically perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Sosa. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but generally, it is unnecessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you can resume to your normal routine as soon as you feel able.

What to Expect

After the procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you will not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery to extend your results.
