By now, most are aware of the treatment known as BOTOX. It is world-famous for its remarkable ability to reduce the signs of aging and improve the appearance of the face. However, the ultimate results of BOTOX depend on the plastic surgeons who administer it. It takes knowledge and skill to use it most effectively and it is why the patients of Dr. Craig E. Berris MD at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid and Laser Surgery in Sacramento, CA are so satisfied with their results.

While plastic surgery can alleviate many issues, BOTOX offers an even more immediate treatment for many concerns. For example, you may not need to consider plastic surgery just yet if you want to deal with crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines on the brows or the face, worry lines between the brows and across the forehead, or even lines in the neck that come from the way you bend or hold it.

This is all good news to our patients who are not ready for plastic surgery but who want to address these early and frustrating signs of aging.

Just what is BOTOX that it can remedy so many issues? In the simplest terms, it is a naturally occurring compound that can be gently injected into the muscles beneath certain areas of the face. Miniscule amounts of the compound cause the muscles to relax and then they do. It also removes many of the lines and wrinkles they cause.

While there are results that you can see within ten minutes of any treatment with the compound, the final results appear within a day or two and will last for up to two full weeks. However, when used by knowledgeable plastic surgeons, some patients can see their results last for several months!

Unlike plastic surgery, BOTOX can be used repeatedly and continue to generate the same results. You will have to maintain a regular schedule of injections if you wish to combat those signs of aging in an uninterrupted manner. Dr. Berris is happy to work with our patients to create ongoing treatment plans that prevent unwanted lines and wrinkles from returning.
