Botox Injections to reduce unwnted lines and wrinkles.

I have used Botox Injections to reduce lines and wrinkles for over 15 years and have even taught courses on how to use Botox to doctors and nurses.

We get a couple of calls each months from doctors in the area that have their nurses or colleagues use Botox on them, because they think it’s easy to do Botox Injections. Well they are partially correct..it is very easy, safe and effective if you’ve been trained in the cosmetic use of Botox and have a thorough knowledge of the nerves and muscles of the face and neck. If you don’t, you can wind up weakening muscles that you need to move certain parts of your face…and then they look odd and call us to bail them out.

1. Good News is Botox Injections are temporary lasting between 4-6 months, so if you have a bad outcome…just wait and the effects will go away.

2. Bad news is you can look odd, even down right scary if your eyebrows are dropped in the center and raised at the edges or your lower eyelids are pulled down from weak eyelid muscles.

Take home message…get Botox Injections from someone experienced, don’t be taken in by a cheap price and don’t have Botox Injected near a part of your face that requires continued muscle tone….like the lower eyelids. I make an exception around the mouith where I use Botox to eliminate the lines around the lips but I use very small amounts strategically placed.
