Botox and other neuromodulators, which prevent muscle stimulation, make up the most common cosmetic treatment obtained in North America as well as around the world today. Originally designed for medical purposes, cosmetic dermatologists first began using Botox to treat glabellar furrows, which are located between the eyebrows, as well as brow furrows that develop due to excessive muscle activity. Today, we use neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport and Xeomin to treat issues such as:
- Horizontal lines on the forehead
- Vertical lines between the brows
- Crow's feet around the eyes
- Vertical lines on the lips
- Lines around the mouth
- Dimpling on the chin
- Vertical lines on the neck (platysmal bands)
- Excessive sweating
At AboutSkin Dermatology, our patients receive more than simple cosmetic treatments; they receive care from highly trained professionals who are making advances in our field. Dr. Cohen trained under world-renowned cosmetic dermatologists, Drs. Jean and Alastair Carruthers, who are pioneers in procedures such as Botox. Working side by side with these physicians well-known for their research and medical advances in both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation methods, Dr. Cohen greatly furthered his skills, thus enabling him to custom design the most ideal treatments for our various patients.
Through years of experience and training, our doctors have discovered that Botox can make the ideal companion for other cosmetic treatments like Restylane or another dermal filler. By pre-treating areas with Botox, results are further enhanced for optimal aesthetics. Botox may also be paired with laser or light-based treatment to produce smooth, supple skin.
A visit to AboutSkin Dermatology for cosmetic treatment typically takes less than thirty minutes, during which time an experienced physician will discuss your aesthetic goals and assess your skin. Recommendations may be made regarding optimal areas for treatment. Your comfort is our priority, and we make every effort to minimize any discomfort that may be associated with treatment through the use of a small gauge needle and the availability of ice or a topical anesthetic before treatment.
As we age, the skin may need a little extra TLC to remain vibrant and fresh. To experience your own rejuvenation, contact AboutSkin Dermatology for your Botox, Dysport or Xeomin treatment.
