Botox is an injectable containing botulinum toxin type A, a substance that relaxes muscles associated with smile, laugh, and frown lines. These lines often appear near your eyes, forehead, and by your nose or mouth.
Botox also offers medical perks in addition to its cosmetic benefits.
It is an FDA-approved, safe, highly effective treatment for both men and women that significantly diminishes unwelcome signs of aging. About 2,500 studies have researched the effects of Botox for aesthetic and medical purposes.

Dr. Ebede may combine Botox with dermal fillers to enhance your cosmetic dermatology results.
Plaza Park Dermatology also uses Botox for the following medical concerns:
Botox is also beneficial for reducing migraines, diminishing ongoing or severe pain to restore your quality of life.
Dr. Ebede discusses your medical history and beauty goals before examining your skin and completing a physical exam. She determines which cosmetic or medical treatment is the best to help you obtain desirable results. She may combine more than one solution when creating a treatment plan that maximizes your outcome.
During Botox treatment, you rest comfortably. Dr. Ebede cleans and numbs the area before gently injecting Botox beneath targeted tissues. She often injects Botox multiple times to ensure highly effective results.
Dr. Ebede might also inject dermal fillers into specific areas on your face or body. The fillers add volume to sunken-in skin to smooth treated tissues and perfect its contours.
The effects of Botox often appear within a few days, and typically last up to four months, sometimes longer. If you’ve received dermal fillers along with Botox, the results from the fillers are visible immediately.
Common temporary side effects of Botox and fillers include tenderness, swelling, and redness at the injection sites. Ice the affected areas as needed to reduce any swelling.
You can resume typical activities after receiving Botox, but avoid touching the treated areas. Schedule repeat Botox injections as needed to ensure long-lasting results.
