The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, known more widely by its brand name BOTOX® Cosmetic, is an easy and nearly non-invasive, temporary treatment for facial wrinkles including crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead creases. Unlike injectable fillers, an injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic effectively provides temporary paralysis of wrinkle-causing facial muscles, rather than plumping out excess skin folding. The effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts an average of four months; and regular BOTOX® injections can be scheduled at our Missoula, Montana practice. Please contact our plastic surgery center to learn more about BOTOX® Cosmetic.
It is important to understand your goals prior to treatment, and we highly recommend discussing those goals with Dr. Stephen Hardy or our esthetician, Laura Conway, RN, CPSN. During an initial consultation, a member of our team will meet personally with you to discuss your goals and help determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most effective and realistic treatment option for you. Such planning only serves to ensure that you receive the most desired and complementary outcome.
Not only can BOTOX® Cosmetic help treat fine lines and wrinkles, it is also a proven treatment for severe underarm sweating, scientifically known as hyperhidrosis. Numerous clinical studies have shown that the injections work in a similar fashion to facial applications by chemically blocking nerve impulses that stimulate sweat glands, while allowing normal sweating to continue in non-treated areas of the body. Because sweat production is actually halted at treated sites, patients need not fear a “back-up” of sweat. As with the facial applications, this is a temporary treatment that lasts approximately two to five months. As with all our services, we are proud to offer our patients these BOTOX® treatment options here at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC, serving Missoula and all surrounding Montana areas.
Our team at Northwest Plastic Surgery Associates, PLLC, is educated, trained, and experienced in administering a variety of cosmetic treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic. If you have additional questions or are interested in scheduling BOTOX® treatment, please contact our Missoula practice.
