At our Albuquerque practice, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which can provide a simple, safe, and non-surgical solution to problematic wrinkles and lines that have arisen around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead as a result of the natural aging process. BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of a highly diluted form of a neuromuscular toxin called botulinum toxin type A. Proven to be safe by the FDA for cosmetic use, BOTOX® injections temporarily smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles that cause them. The result is a smoother, silkier, and more youthful complexion.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure
During the procedure, Dr. Gallegos uses a fine syringe to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic into the targeted facial areas. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the facial muscles that are responsible for the wrinkles, effectively smoothing out the area. The entire procedure can be completed in less than one hour, and patients are usually able to resume their normal activities after treatment.
Results with BOTOX® Cosmetic
Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can be seen within a few days after treatment. Dynamic wrinkles and creases around the eyes and mouth, as well as on the forehead and between the eyebrows, seem to disappear after treatment. Patients can enjoy the smooth and rejuvenated skin produced BOTOX® Cosmetic for up to six months. BOTOX® injections can be combined with Restylane®, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, or other cosmetic treatments such as facelift surgery or eyelid surgery for the ultimate cosmetic makeover.
