Botox Cosmetic, botulinum toxin, has revolutionized the market of products to reduce wrinkles, particularly of the forehead. In April of 2002, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Botox for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe lines of the forehead in adult men and women. Botox derived from botulinum toxin has been used successfully for over 15 years for the treatment of various conditions.
Patients that benefit most from Botox are those who have wrinkles between their eyebrows who tend to appear tired, upset, or display a permanent scowl. Wrinkles between the eyebrows are caused by contracting muscles in the forehead, the corrugator and procerus muscles. A small amount of Botox is injected under the skin to paralyze the muscles in the face that pull the skin and cause wrinkles. The result is a smoother, improved appearance between the eyebrows. Botox also can weaken the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes which means it's a great option for reducing the appearance of crows feet. The procedure is minimally invasive, quick, and may have results that last up to four months.
Dr. Jeffrey Gallups and Dr. Mark Beaty are both double board certified in otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery. They have personally treated thousands of patients with Botox with great results. The cost of the Botox is individually determined by the surgeon based on the patient's individual needs.
"I recently had endoscopic sinus surgery and rhinoplasty surgery. Dr. Gallups made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to have surgery. He did an amazing job and the surgery went extremely well. The results are exactly what I wanted and I feel and breathe better."
