BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used for years to treat various problems including eye deviation, eyelid spasm as well as facial spasms. When you age, you develop wrinkles and furrows on your face. This may be a result of sun exposure and gravity, or a direct result of facial muscle action of the skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic For Frown And Smile Lines
BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes muscle areas where there is too much tension. Therefore, it may be used to treat facial lines caused primarily by the action of muscles on the skin. The ideal areas to treat are the deep creases found between the eyebrows, the crows feet wrinkles, and forehead lines.
Do The Injections Hurt?
Most people find that the injections cause only mild, temporary discomfort.
What Will You Look Like After Treatment?
Immediately after injection, there may be mild swelling which usually subsides in 4-24 hours.
Side effects of this treatment are rare. Occasionally, temporary drooping of the eyebrow or eyelid may occur. This may last up to a few weeks. Rarely, numbness may develop in the treated area.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic has been shown to be very successful. Good results may be obtained after a single session and typically last for 2 to 4 months. It is best to perform the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections every three months. Then, problem muscle areas gradually atrophy and shrink, allowing the wrinkles they cause to fade away.
If you are pregnant and/or a nursing mother, treatment is not recommended.
Note: It takes 2-4 days for the BOTOX® Cosmetic to work.
After suffering from extreme migraine pain for over 41 years, I have found relief with the use of Botox injections! I had NO IDEA that Botox would help with the pain. On one of my visits to Dr. Pousti’s office in Murrieta, I was working my way through a painful migraine. One of the girls in the office asked if I had ever considered getting Botox injections. Being a migraine sufferer herself, she had found that Botox really took the pain away.
I went home and searched the Internet for everything I could find on the use of Botox for control of the pain of migraines. I was intrigued and found that it had been used for some time and that altho the FDA had yet to approve it for migraine use, many doctors and headache clinics were using it successfully.
On the next “Botox Clinic Day” at Dr. Pousti’s Murrieta office, I received my first treatment. Within 4 days I noticed that not only did I not have migraine pain, I had NO HEADACHE PAIN at all! The injections lasted about 4 months. As soon as I felt the headache pain coming back, I simply went into Dr. Pousti’s office for another treatment. And success once again! No more headache pain of any type.
Dr. Pousti and his staff are very fast and efficient with the Botox treatments and I am in and out of the office in the blink of an eye. This is important as I am always on the go. Once done, I check-off my Botox appointment and continue on with the rest of my errands for the day, never missing a beat.
In the past, I had been treated many times at the ER for severe migraine pain. I am pleased to say that is all in the past for me. I cannot recommend Botox strongly enough for those who like me, suffer from migraine pain or daily headache pain. And let me not forget to mention the added bonus of having the wrinkles fade away on my forehead!
I’m 25 years old and I have been noticing that the area in between my eyebrows was starting to form a crease. I tend to frown/squint when I’m driving, using the computer or outdoors in the sun. I really hated that particular line of expression because it was making me look older and I didn’t want it to start to crack on that crease. I finally decided to try Botox. Dr. Pousti did my Botox about 8 weeks ago and I love it. I no longer have the crease and it looks very nice and natural. I’m very glad I did it. I also noticed it helped me with my headaches!! Thank you Dr. Pousti!!
I have been Dr. Pousti’s patient for many years. I had a breast augmentation, liposuction, laser hair removal and just recently had Botox. I LOVE all my procedures/treatments!! Dr.Pousti and his staff have always made me feel welcome with open arms. He has changed my life, I can’t thank him enough for all that he has done! Dr. and his staff called me after my surgery for several weeks, just to check to see how I was doing and feeling after surgery, that’s what I call a caring, AMAZING unique Doctor.
Yet again I am super impressed with Dr.Pousti! During a routine follow up visit Dr.Pousti and I got on the topic of migraine headaches. I have suffered with horrible migraines since I was a teen and I get them regularly. Dr.Pousti informed me that Botox had recently been approved as a treatment for migraines and he has had success with it in the past and he recommended that I try it also. Being the wonderful physician that he is, he even offered to do it right then so I took him up on his offer. It was the absolute BEST recommendation! I have now been migraine free for over 2 months. Thank you Dr.Pousti!!!
