There are several brand name injectable products available that can block nerve impulses to muscles to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Bader prefers Botox®, the most widely recognized brand. Botox is very safe and effective when used by a well-trained and experienced injector for the right reasons.
Botox works best when used to eliminate forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. Botox® can also be used in some patients to produce a temporary brow lift by altering the power of different muscles pulling on the brow.
Most patients experience no pain or bruising with the injections as a very tiny needle is used to deliver the drug to a precise area. The results are often dramatic and last approximately 3 months. Dr. Bader employs a conservative approach and will often recommend doses that will still allow some natural movement of the face.
Dr. Bader always performs all Botox® treatments personally and keeps a detailed record of each treatment so refinements can be made to enhance the results of future treatments.
