What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® cosmetic is made from purified protein that causes muscles to relax. It is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. Dr. Trent, who has over 15 years of experience, will analyze your problem areas and devise a plan tailored to your specific needs. She personally performs all Cosmetic injections in our Sarasota office.
How does it work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. The product is injected directly into the muscles needing to be treated. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. A treatment session typically takes about 5-10 minutes with no downtime. Results do not appear instantly, in some cases patients begin to see results within 48 hours but most patients begin to notice results 5-7 days after treatment with a full expression of treatment at 2 weeks.

More serious side effects include allergic reaction or spread of toxin, (which can affect swallowing, speaking, movement, or breathing). Always see a trained Doctor to minimize the chance of side effects. People who get cold sores (herpes simplex infections) should start on antiviral medications prior to treatment to prevent reactivation when receiving an injection into an area where a previous outbreak has occurred.
