Based on his years of experience with patients and with the best injectables on the market, Dr. Zienowicz can recognize when BOTOX is a better choice than a wrinkle filler. Dr. Zienowicz counsels his patients about their options and makes time to perform injectable treatments at his practice three days each week.
Botulinum A Toxin (BOTOX®) is used as a treatment for glabellar frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows), forehead lines, and crow’s feet (lines around the lower eyes). Botulinum A Toxin (BOTOX®) is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of eyelid spasm, muscle spasm causing crossed eyes, as well as for correcting one-sided facial muscle spasm. BOTOX is used for cosmetic treatment for glabellar frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet.
Injection of BOTOX into muscles between the brows, in the forehead, and at the corners of the eyes will cause those muscles to halt function. This improves the appearance of wrinkles created by the constriction of those muslces. The paralysis is temporary. Reinjection of BOTOX is necessary in order for the patient to maintain the initial results. BOTOX lasts three to ten months.
