Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic can improve wrinkles caused by movement of the facial muscles, keeping the overall result subtle, powerful, and enhancing. Since its rise to popularity in the mid-2000s, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment has become the most commonly utilized cosmetic procedure in the United States What is Botox? Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time. How does it work? Botox® Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles of certain facial expressions thus reducing wrinkles and folds, This helps to reduce the frown lines , crows feet, upper lip lines that develop over the years. With less movement of these muscles, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and aging lines begin to fade.

Botox® / Xeomin / Dysport


In a simple and quick minor procedure, Dr.Baig will inject a carefully measured amount of Botox into the area of concern.

Initially, the skin will be wiped with alcohol, and this will be allowed to dry. Using a very small needle, the chemical will be introduced into the appropriate location.

As in all injections, some minor discomfort may be experienced, but this lasts only for a moment.

In the eyebrow area, the injection will be placed above the level of the eyebrow to address the vertical wrinkles that arise just above the nose. An additional injection can be placed between the eyebrows to address the horizontal wrinkles that are occasionally present at the top of the nose. With respect to the “crow’s feet” area, two to four small injections will be placed superficially into the area of the muscle that contributes to the development of “crow’s feet” wrinkles. It is expected that only partial inactivation of the muscle will occur in this area to leave a natural appearance at rest while smiling.

Post Procedure Care

Post Treatment Instructions

Day of Treatment:

You may experience a mild amount of tenderness or a stinging sensation following injection.

Redness and swelling are normal. Some bruising may also be visible.

You may experience some tenderness at the treatment site(s) that can last for a few hours or a few days. You may have bruises in the areas treated. Immediately After Treatment

It is best to try to exercise your treated muscles for 1-2 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, and squinting). This helps to work the product® into your muscles.

Stay in a vertical position for four hours following injection. DO NOT “rest your head” or lie down; sit upright.

You may apply an ice or cold gel pack to the area(s) treated (avoiding pressure) as this helps reduce swelling and the potential for bruising.

Once you have adequately cooled/iced the area(s) as instructed and any pinpoint bleeding from the injection site(s) has subsided, you may begin wearing makeup.

AVOID placing excessive pressure on the treated area(s) for the first few days; when cleansing your face or applying makeup, be very gentle. AVOID exercise or strenuous activities for the remainder of the treatment day; you may resume other normal activities/routines immediately.

You may take Acetaminophen/Tylenol if you experience any mild tenderness or discomfort.

AVOID extended UV exposure until any redness/swelling has subsided. Be sure to apply an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen.

Wait a minimum of 24 hours (or as directed by your provider) before receiving any skin care or laser treatments.
