BOTOX Scottsdale AZ

botox scottsdale az

Dr. Van Dyke is a top provider of Botox in Scottsdale and Paradise Valley. The introduction of Botox in 2002 has been one of the most significant developments in the field of Cosmetic Dermatology. Botox is currently the most popular single Cosmetic Dermatologic procedure. Botox has been used therapeutically since 1990 and has gained an amazing safety profile. In 2002 it was FDA approved for the relaxation of the frown lines that form between the eyebrows. Botox treatment involves quick, tiny, painless injections into the overactive muscles that cause a wrinkle. The result is a more relaxed facial expression that lasts for several months. Millions of patients have been thrilled with the results of Botox treatment. In addition to frown lines, other areas of the face can be treated such as the crows feet, forehead furrows, and marionette lines. In the expert hands of the Van Dyke Aesthetics patients can expect to achieve a natural, softer, more relaxed appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription drug that, when injected, temporarily paralyzes muscles. It contains a purified and safe form of botulinum toxin A, which is produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Manufactured by Allergan, Inc., it is used to treat permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin that are formed by the continual contraction of facial muscles. In addition to its cosmetic applications, it is used to treat a number of medical problems, including excessive sweating, overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.

Applications For BOTOX Cosmetic

Although originally approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of eye and muscle spasms, BOTOX Cosmetic was quickly recognized for its cosmetic value. Properly placed injections of BOTOX Cosmetic block nerve impulses sent to muscles, weakening them to the point where they cannot contract, and temporarily eliminating moderately severe furrows and lines. BOTOX Cosmetic is used to treat the following:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Skin bands on the neck

According to Allergan, BOTOX Cosmetic has been "extensively researched, with approximately 2500 studies."

BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure And Results

Using a very fine needle, BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into facial muscles that are causing furrows and lines. Receiving the injections requires no anesthetic, but some doctors choose to numb the area to be injected with ice packs or a topical anesthetic cream. Results can usually be seen within a few days of treatment, and typically last up to four months, although areas that are treated on a regular basis may retain results longer. Injections should be given only by qualified medical professionals.
