BOTOX® Cosmetic

We laugh, we frown, we squint, and as we age, these actions on delicate facial skin causes many of us to develop permanent creases between and around our eyes and forehead. Ironically, these types of lines can often cause us to look worried, tense, and angry even when we are in perfectly good moods.

In 1986 Dr. Feinfield was one of the first physicians in the U.S. to study the functional effects of BOTOX®. Today, he offers BOTOX® as a fast and effective way to improve lines, furrows, and involuntary muscular contractions.

With the use of topical anesthetic cream and an ultra-fine needle, Dr. Feinfield injects BOTOX® into the skin right where the frown and furrow lines appear. The BOTOX® acts to block the impulses from the nerves to the muscles to control the area and the line. The effect of BOTOX® can last from 3-6 months or sometimes longer. The result is that you will look more relaxed and often quite a bit younger.

Patients notice results in 2 – 3 days, and the effects last an average of 4 months. Less expensive than facial cosmetic surgery, BOTOX® is a wonderful alternative for patients looking for subtle results with very little downtime.

Is the BOTOX® treatment painful?

Patients report only mild discomfort during a BOTOX® injection. Your doctor may use a topical anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the injection. If the area appears a little irritated or red following treatment, you may use cover-up make-up so that the area is less noticeable.

Will I need ongoing BOTOX® treatments?

The results after BOTOX® injection are temporary, lasting an average of 3 – 4 months. Many patients choose to continually update their look with regular injections, although there will be no noticeable effects other than the return to your normal condition if you discontinue treatments.

Can I afford regular BOTOX® treatments?

Many patients find BOTOX® to be an affordable solution to facial wrinkling and a viable solution when compared with the costs of a facelift or other cosmetic surgeries. At Berg Feinfield Vision Correction, we aim to fit BOTOX® into your budget, with a variety of payment plans and affordable financing options. You will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns about cost during your personal BOTOX® consultation.

Does BOTOX® limit movement in the forehead?

With BOTOX® treatment, the muscles we are targeting are strictly those that create unwanted wrinkling with contraction. In many cases, the muscles will still be able to move, but the wrinkles will be minimized or eliminated. An experienced BOTOX® doctor is able to target the desired area for natural-looking results without generating the stereotypical”frozen” or surprised look.

Who should not use BOTOX® treatments?

People who have any type of infection in the desired treatment area should not use BOTOX® until the infection is eliminated. Also, if you are allergic to any ingredient in the BOTOX® formula, your doctor will recommend you consider other alternatives. Patients with neuromuscular disorders may face serious risks with the use of BOTOX®.
