Botox

Botox Cosmetic is an injectable purified protein that effectively stops the wrinkling caused by certain muscles. It's most effective use is in the forehead (frown lines and forehead wrinkling) and around the eyes (crow's feet). It can also be used to "lift" the forehead slightly.

Botox Cosmetic injections are safe and effective. One of the main advantages of this technique, is the fact that it is a minor "office" procedure. In other words, you can receive a series of injections and return to work or your daily routine immediately without any signs or downtime. Dr. Fialkov has also devised a technique by which Botox Cosmetic injections can be combined with a limited forehead lift to achieve an effective overall improvement in forehead wrinkling and brow drooping.

The main disadvantage of is the fact that the effects of Botox injections are temporary, lasting anywhere from 3 to 6 months. There is a risk of some minor bruising following the injections as well as other rare minor complications such as ptosis of the upper eyelids (droopiness) which is temporary and unlikely to occur if the injection is performed correctly.
