Choosing BOTOX Cosmetic
Not everyone needs or wants a face lift or brow lift to correct the signs of aging in the face. BOTOX can bring about significant improvement in the appearance of a number of concerns with one short, simple treatment. Dr. Polacek is highly experienced in the use of BOTOX to correct vertical frown lines, horizontal forehead furrows, crow's feet, and wrinkles around the lips and chin. She can even use BOTOX to give the eyebrows or lips a subtle lift, and to re-contour corners of the mouth that have begun to droop. Millions of people have chosen BOTOX Cosmetic because it is:
- Safe – BOTOX has been used safely for decades for a variety of medical uses.
- Effective – targeted lines and wrinkles soften and fade or even disappear with BOTOX injections
- Lasting – Results from BOTOX injections typically last 4 to 5 months, and sometimes longer with regularly scheduled treatments
- Natural – Because nothing is pulled or altered, BOTOX results look natural, but noticeable

About BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX contains a naturally occurring protein that weakens the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles (those caused by repeated facial expressions). When BOTOX is injected in extremely small doses into a specific muscle, it blocks the signals from the local nerve endings from reaching the muscle. As the muscle releases, the overlying skin relaxes and wrinkles soften or even disappear. An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Polacek knows precisely which muscles to target for optimal results that look soft and natural.
BOTOX treatments typically take only 15 minutes, and there is very little discomfort involved. The needle used for the injections is tiny, and causes minimal redness or irritation. The placement of the injections and the amount of BOTOX used will be determined by your specific concerns and desired results. Most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately following their treatment. Results from BOTOX injections usually emerge over a period of 5 to 7 days with the final result visible by 2 weeks.
If you would like to look younger without surgery, you may be a good candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic. At your consultation, Dr. Polacek will discuss all of your facial rejuvenation options, and help you to determine if BOTOX can achieve the results you want.
