Botox Injections

What’s the hottest new craze in Aesthetic Medicine today? It is Botox®!!! For those patients wishing to turn back the clock, Botox® helps eliminate wrinkles, crows feet, and frown lines. The procedure actually takes about five minutes, is done on an outpatient basis, is relatively inexpensive, and is no more painful than a momentary sting. After your Botox® treatments you may resume all normal activities. Patients can see results in as few as four hours, but most results begin to show in two days with the full benefits realized in about 10 days.
Botox® is a toxic botulinum that interferes with nerve impulses. In small doses Botox®, is completely safe as it temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause frown lines in the face. As the muscle is paralyzed, the skin is smoothed and the wrinkles disappear. Many of the physicians using Botox® are reporting that their patients are seeing dramatic results. Some patients feel that they are able to postpone planned cosmetic surgery.

Botox® has been used safely and effectively now for many years to treat a variety of disorders. Now, finally, it has become one of the most popular treatments today for reversing the visible signs of aging. If those expression lines and lines derived from squinting as a result of sun glare are making you look older than your years, or are giving you the appearance of a frown or scowl, then discover Botox® and put on a happy face!

Our eyes project an image of who we are, as they say the eyes are the windows of the soul. Therefore it is very important to make the most of oneof our most striking and attractive features. If our eyes look well rested, youthful and enthusiastic, most people will assume that is how we are feeling. If our eyes project a tired, depressed and uninterested look, people will assume the worst.

When wrinkles, lines, and puffiness develop (sometimes at all too early an age), the eyes give an inaccurate reflection of our emotional state or energy level. It is bad enough when we see this reflected in our own mirror, but even worse when we are constantly asked if we’ve had enough sleep. No one wants to look older or more tired than they really are, so if your eyes are giving a false impression it’s time to take action.

It’s important for people to realize that the more you maintain your skin, especially when you’re in your 20s and 30s, the less you’ll have to overhaul when you get older. So it’s important to get on a skin care program, with special eye cream products in your 20s and then you will be able to hold off on the cosmetic procedures until much later. There are many beauty tips and skin care programs that can help to keep the skin moist and supple, and many of these will also help to keep the eyes looking their best.

It’s also very important to get enough sleep, as not enough of it leads to puffy and baggy eyes… Eat healthy as well. It’s not just a cliché. To a great extent you are what you eat, and it is necessary to have a diet that is rich with foods containing Vitamin A to provide nutrients for your eyes and enhance vision.

When you reach your 30s and the crow’s feet, or laughter lines start to show, you can always have botox, which is becoming more and more popular with the younger generation. Dr. Afif Kenj of CosmeSurge says “in the past few years we have seen an enormous increase in the amount of 20 & 30 years old coming for botox – more and more people are realizing that it is an easy, effective treatment that can eradicate lines around the eyes and smooth out deep expression lines.”

When you get past your 40’s and your eyelids start to sag, never fear, modern technology has already got a solution for you. It is the time to take advantage of the great cosmetic surgical techniques that exist today which can eliminate these issues and bring back “your lost youth”.

A wonderful operation called a “Blepheroplasty” can correct sagging, tired looking eyelids and eliminate the wrinkles and puffiness of the upper and lower eyelids. Simple removal of eyelid skin creates a very crisp and clean look to the upper eyelid. When the puffiness caused by bulging fat of the lower eyelid is also eliminated, the years melt away and that look of energy and vitality becomes yours once again! When your eyes look good, your entire face will look improved and younger.

A Blepheroplasty procedure has tremendous impact on your overall appearance and creates a very natural and pleasing look that most people will be unable to detect. Dr. Kenj explains: “A Blepheroplasty has a virtually painless recovery which is also very brief and can be performed on an outpatient basis, same day surgery usually within a couple of hours. Natural lines and creases around the eyes hide any potential incisions. In fact, most of the time, an external incision is not even necessary for the lower eyelid making this truly a “scar-less” operation. The healing is so rapid and so pain free, most people have made a complete recovery by the third or fourth day and normal activities can be completely resumed after about a week.”

Sometimes the brows sag so much that they need to be lifted. In the past the brow lift required a coronal long incision along the hair line. Nowadays it is done through a one centimeter incision hidden inside the scalp or endoscopic brow lift.
